Obviously between the stress test Thursday and the stress test Friday there weren’t going to be any big developments. So I just sort of flitted around from one thing to the next fooling around.
I finally remembered to take some screen shots for the jumping puzzle guide and discovered that there are now going to be at least 3 official jumping puzzles in Lion’s Arch alone. One of which had been deemed as scenic in my guide, the other two to be added shortly.
Another thing I noted in Lion’s Arch, which has probably been there for a while but went unnoticed by me, is a moa race of some sort. I figure this to be a Lion’s Arch activity. There is an NPC moa (named “green moa – racer” IIRC) sitting by 3 side-by-side gates in a similar manner to a horse race. There is also a path that leads to a horseshoe boardwalk that sends you back the way you just came from. Indicative of a racetrack.
Why do I not take screenshots?
Aside from that it was very difficult to get anything done due to the massive rubber banding I was experiencing. Here’s what they had to say about it.
We’re having an issue with one of the Internet connections in our North American data center. Anyone connecting to us through that link is experiencing bad lag right now.
I did try to get the Shadow Behemoth to spawn. It was night when I logged in and happened to be right there, so I fought the Rotting Oakheart, talked to the NPCs by the heart that spawn the portal to the underworld, and I read the journal at the shack that also spawns a portal to the underworld. I closed a couple of the portals that spawn for the heart by chance and did a couple of the events by the monastery. No luck whatsoever.
I asked in map chat if anybody had any suggestions and was told to “do the quest chain”. Sigh.
The missing texture issue I experienced on Thursday didn’t recur much for me but I saw plenty of people talking about it as well. Too little time for it to have been fixed obviously but I’m sure they’re on top of it.
And I think that’s about it for me. How was it for you guys?
