GW2 March 27 Game Update Patch Notes.

Moto’s world-renowned Super Adventure Box returns again when the Super Adventure Festival kicks off on March 29! Explore two worlds of excitement, peril, and educational entertainment to earn holographic weapons and a variety of loot.

  • Festivities begin on March 29 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) and continue until April 19 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7).
  • A new achievement category, Super Adventure Box: Nostalgia, has been added, containing repeatable and once-per-year achievements for Super Adventure Box.
  • Moto’s inventory of rewards has been split into two vendors accompanying him outside the box and inside its hub area. New Super consumable items are also available!
  • A new race event has been added in the Super Adventure Box hub. Show off your progress in jumping-based education!
  • Portals leading travelers to the Super Adventure Box hub have been temporarily activated in all major cities for the duration of the festival. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Rata Sum’s most popular invention, but remember to play safe and avoid violating Peacemaker regulations.
Moto’s Bug-Fix List
  • Players who have beaten World 1, Zone 1 will now see a shortened version of the opening scene when entering that zone. The full scene will always play in Infantile Mode for the enjoyment of progeny.
  • The /resign command can now be used in Super Adventure Box’s worlds.
  • Many concealed spear traps in Tribulation Mode will now become visible after taking a player’s life.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the player’s POINTY STICK to show 0-damage hits in addition to its normal damage.

  • Health potions now consume a charge immediately on use. Be careful handling potion flasks!
  • Alligator interiors are now no longer bouncy to prevent an issue that embedded players into the alligator-ceiling.
  • Fixed a bug that caused players to become stuck in a pit of lava with no escape.

  • Master jumpers who find themselves with an excess of Tribulation Mode trophies can now exchange them for baubles with the vendors.
  • Players remaining in the Super Adventure Box hub when the festival ends will be redirected to their homeland.

  • The Fine Dining achievement is now advanced by consuming Feast of Truffle Steak Dinner and Feast of Spicy Lime Steaks, rather than by learning the recipes for the feasts. Players who already received credit for learning the recipes do not need to consume the feasts.

  • The employees of the Black Lion Stables have left the continent behind and scoured the Isle of Istan and beyond to make a whole new collection of mounts available to you. Thenew Istani Isles mount licenses are available in two varieties, and the collection contains fifteen new cosmetic options—three for each mount. With this collection, we are introducing a new option to purchase specific mount skins from this collection based on feedback from the community. Players will be able to obtain these skins from the Istani Isles—Mount Adoption License or the Istani Isles—Mount Select License.
    • The Istani Isles—Mount Adoption License will allow you to claim a random mount skin from the Istani set and is available in the Style category of the Gem Store for 400 gems each.
    • The Istani Isles—Mount Select License will allow you to choose a mount skin from the Istani set and is available in the in the Style category of the Gem Store for 1,200 gems.

The original Mount Adoption License proved to be a popular item for mount skin collectors, so we want to continue offering that same level of variety to players who enjoy it, while at the same time offering players a way to get the specific skin they want. As we explained in our previous message, offering a random-draw option makes it possible to design a wide variety of skins to suit every taste. We love seeing how players customize mount skins to suit their characters, and we hope you have as much fun using these skins as we did creating them.


– Special Note: The Istani Isles mount license set is entirely different from the original mount license set, which is still available. If you’ve unlocked all the skins from the original Mount Adoption License collection, and you still have unopened licenses left over, please contact Customer Support.

    1200 gems for a single mount skin?? Pass. 😛

    Good to see that the 3 Golem Monte bug got fixed. Still waiting on the Fishing event to get reinstated though.

    Disappointed there’s no World 3, but that was expected. Looking forward to seeing the new SAB achieves though!

  • Isakichan

    No fix on the fucking fishing event that prevents us to complete the backpack collection ? Great.

  • Zone

    I can’t wait to get home for them mount skins!

  • FrycoN

    Cant log in after patch.
    Client not working…

    • Максим Кравцов

      Same

    • Rathor

      Remove addon files. I usually delete all files except the launcher and gw2.dat file

  • Talindra

    tl;dr Still no fishing event fix

  • Jasmine Lock

    So they’re basically penalising those of us who only want one specific skin?

    • Z.DRAG0N

      No they are making both options available because though the community through a massive backlash to random mount skin adoption not all players felt that way. Some players will buy all the skins regardless while some players will only buy 1 or 2 of them.

      Realistically players wont ever be happy regardless of what they do and this way makes it so people really have nothing to cry about because both options are available to you.

  • Kris Piedel

    I cant believe they didn’t fix the Serpent’s Ire Meta Event. This Meta needs some tuning to the hp so these adds can die. Keep the cc and everything just lower the hp

    • zaw

      in last 3 days i completed it joining lfg group 5 minutes before start sooo its not that impossible. after everyone finishes their backpacks tho, itll be a problem again.

  • Rathor

    People didn’t like 400gems random mount skins, didn’t like 2000gems specifin skins. Don’t like 1200gems specific skins with 400gem random option.
    Maybe They’ll like free gems with everything free and Anet goes out of business.

    • Jasmine Lock

      No surprise there.

    • Jalen Dmello

      I would actually prefer earning them ingame through collection or something like that.
      400 -1200 is fine i guess.

      • Z.DRAG0N

        And they would like you to pay a monthly subscription fee to play the game every month sense they are giving you free content and unlockables via collections only

        • Jalen Dmello

          3600 gems worth of skins almost 40$ for a 15$ sub fee and obviously since its a monthly fee we get way more stuff over the month

          Sign me up

  • Ayakaru

    Theres a second part of fixes, which include a fix for the fishing event, and the locking of magical abilities on season 4 and PoF bounties so they don’t dance around in the conditions bat

  • Jade_Maze

  • Burn Bicz, BURN

    They fck up gathering tools

    • Alot

      What happened?

      • Honeyfox

        Right now, you can gather one time and your tool’s gone.
        My freshly equipped frostbitten orichalcum axe instantly disappeared after I hit a tree one time, instead of 100 times x.x

    • Honeyfox

      Aye… ._. I wonder how long it will take them to fix it.

      • writinwater

        just buy a new set ingame – new sets purchased after the download have full numbers and functionality

  • Alot

    “Players remaining in the Super Adventure Box hub when the festival ends will be redirected to their homeland”. The wording amused me.

  • Taiwan Wolf

    not a very exciting balance patch being pvp only. does this mean PvE is finally 100% balanced?

  • Ryeder Motta

    1st time that i dont see a balance that doesn’t fuck with the entire pve community!!!!!!

  • Thief player

    Bunker pvp meta is back! WoHoo….. (sarcasm)
