Guild Wars 2: Dungeon Fixes and Exploit Closings Spotlighted in Update

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,572MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The latest patch notes for Guild Wars 2 have been posted on the official site. Chief among the long list of changes are alterations to several dungeons as well as the closing of exploits some players had been taking advantage of in recent weeks.

We’ve made some significant updates to dungeon rewards. I wanted to try and clarify them here. All of these changes have been the result of an original exploit which was letting players receive upwards of 20 levels by completing a single dungeon run. We initially closed this exploit, which caused some new problems. The result is this new system which should increase dungeon rewards for players who play though them normally but help curb inflation of rewards for those who are using exploitative methods to farm them.

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    Glad they fixed the "Stand By Your Krewe" difficulty.  My wife almost quit the game over that one (way too hard for level 8 Ele).  Too bad for her she's past it now.  lol

    Many ppl got the  exotic skin gear arready at least 70% of my server did. Much of the bug are still there and i think those "changes" was not what ppl was waiting for. Making some intances almost imposible and nerfing loot is not the right way from my point of view. Burn me now.

    I'm predicting it goes f2p within 6 months. I also predict a lot of Americans will move to Canada if Obama is re-elected because they don't want to live in a country with socialized medicine.

    3) Dungeon tokens should be account bound. This will allow players to have a single character farm tokens for their other characters

    That is just nice! :)

    The loot wasn't nerfed, you now get twice the tokens the first time you complete a path than you did before to compensate for needing to complete the path before you get the tokens, with tokens as rare drops an incoming update. So actually, you're getting more. 2 hours of work with a good group got me all 3 paths of TA and 180 tokens. That was more than I'd gotten in days prior from people just farming the beginning bosses over and over. If you were talking about getting rich and going up 10+ levels from said farming, common sense would tell you that wasn't working as intended.
