Lovely bit of testing today as Arenanet continues to work on the game. I mostly screwed around trying to figure out the Thaumanova Reactor jumping puzzle, to no avail. However I did take note of a few things.
There also seems to be some form of email verification system going in, a security feature. I hit it twice early on but recieved no email and started playing anyway. Later on Twitter they asked people to log out and try it again, upon doing so it worked. However my good friend and recent contributor Spirit got disconnected at one point and wasn’t allowed back in. She said she had 17 emails from Arenanet but it refused to verify her.
At least on my end things seemed to improve as time went on. When I was checking the gem store and auction house earlier in the night I was having some lag issues, but later as they were asking people to specifically stress those features I could spam through the pages without much trouble.
There were bugs though. Near Artreium Haven (sp?) I encountered a gate to a small keep that was having troubles with mexican food. It was on a continuous loop but when I invited a friend to see it nothing was wrong on their end.
I also heard reports that if you logged into one character and then another without checking your mail, when you did finally open your mail the DD and CE digital items would be missing or screwed up in some manner. I received my items with no problems thankfully.
Anyway those are the things that went wrong, what about what went right?
I managed to get my HoM titles working. I quickly started sporting Champion of the Gods around Lion’s Arch. They must have updated it mid-test as I had checked on it earlier in the night. There was no sign of God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals, but it’s good to see progress.
And speaking of the HoM, I heard from @_Ilikepizza on twitter that he had recieved a teleport stone upon creating a new character. It didn’t work but it seemed to suggest we’d be teleporting to the Eye of the North. I had always thought we’d gain our rewards from going to our Home Instance. Anyway I went ahead and made a new character to see for myself.
Very little information to be had from that screenshot I guess.
Finally the dances were in. It was all anyone talked about. Ravious just tweeted a video of the norn dance which is apparently a version of a lfmao music video.
Anybody else notice new things I missed?
