Connection issues[edit]

Has anyone else had their "update" grind to a halt? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

I think we all have on whiteside ridge. Spark-TBa 22:48, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Since the update I keep getting "Connection error retrying" or it will start to download and then just stop (Zimmleanna 22:50, 15 November 2012 (UTC))
According to their twitter account, its because there are so many people downloading the patch (looks like it will be over 500mb based on progress so far). I too got the connection error thing, but after about 5 minutes was able to get through. Althouth the download speed keeps fluctuating, probably due to the player load. 22:57, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Patience, people. The wiki is not the place to complain about connection errors or slow downloads, anyway. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 23:04, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Now the update notes are officially out i like what i see, nothing too bad, if not beneficial to party play for the ones i use anyway. ill wait till tomorrow to download the update so you lot can get on with it tonight  :P Spark-TBa 23:25, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Achievement points bug[edit]

After logging in on my account I find myself having about 500~ less achievement points. I think my points from completing daily and monthly achievs from the past were subtracted from my total points, because everything else stayed the same. Did anyone else experience a similar bug after this patch? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

I have gone from 2007 to 1486 achievement points. *crap* Mar Talk Master 23:43, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
this is getting fixed "Achievement points are not gone, they are not displayed correctly. Fix is incoming soon. ^MK " - User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 00:26, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Some achievements got expanded too - such as Ascalon Explorer, which now marks 176 areas instead of 175 (though it's still short of 2 or 3 areas). Konig/talk 00:29, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Skill disambigs[edit]

Please remember to add the proper page name to the skill icon template taking the disambig tag into account. Otherwise it'll break and looks ugly! Anyways, all fixed! Drago 23:48, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

ANet Censoring Themselves[edit]

- Fixed a bug that caused many piercing, boomerang, and bouncing projectiles (those that hit more than 1 target) to continually increase in damage the mokittengets they hit.

A guildie pointed out to me it should probably be "more targets". Probably an attempt at censoring the word "retard", for anybody else it confused. Just made me giggle, so thought I'd mention it :p. 23:53, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

It's the language filter replacing the string with kitten. Same thing when any user puts fuck or bitch in their thread.--Relyk 00:05, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

new icons on log in[edit]

dose any one have those individually cut out already uploaded on the wiki?- User Zesbeer sig.png Zesbeer 01:19, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Merciful Intervention Nerf[edit]

I believe the healing on Merciful Intervention at level 80 used to be something like 2,152 + 2 * healing power. It is now 1320 + 0.2 * healing power (going by the tooltip--I haven't combat-tested it). Patch notes mention a functionality change but not a power change; I wonder if this was an unintentional side-effect or if they just neglected to mention it? --Felbryn 08:22, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Moa Morph[edit]

Just a suggestion... perhaps they should change this skill so that it actually works on bosses who all seem to be immune to the skill. It is supposed to be an elite after all. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

As is indicated by the note at the top of this page: this is not the place for this, please post this on the official forums. 12:00, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Account-bound transmutations[edit]

I just noticed that some of my heritage armor is now account-bound. Did they silently change transmutation bindings? User Kirbman signature.png talk 08:55, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
