GW2 Gemstore Update – World Boss Portal Device

GW2 gemstore updated today with the World Boss Portal Device for 400 gems.

World Boss Portal Device (400 gems)

  • This device will put world boss notifications in your chat box and teleport you to current and upcoming world bosses (to the nearest waypoint, even if it is contested)
  • Pretty handy device if you just wanna log on and do some non-specific world bosses. Can be put in shared inventory slot for all your chars to use.

 

 

  • answerer

    top thing, it also helps generating some map access on alt characters you don’t play much on, since it opens waypoint connections

  • Daniel Reid

    Ugh, i mean.. its convenient…

  • Emil33

    That’s going to come in handy! Love it!

  • Dev : Adding a WB timer in the game ?
    Senior Dev : Great idea !
    Marketing : WAIT ! Sell it !
    – NCSoft like this

    Seem like a joke

    • Sty

      It’s not only a timer though.

    • answerer

      if it was only a timer, it’d probably be free,
      but it’s also a portal device, meaning you’re paying for the convenience of transportation.

    • Guest

      Marketing : Let them also convert around 130 ingame gold to gems so everyone as a chance

  • OK I need this…

  • Mr. Principal

    Hmm.. To buy or not to buy..

    • Emil33

      buy it 😛

      • Mr. Principal

        I did it..! 😀

        • Emil33

          Is it everything you hoped it would be, and more? 😀

          • Mr. Principal

            Yup.. for a lazy person like me.. this is quite useful.. Used it to get my non-main ( lazy heroes! ) who shiver just from the thought of having to run across maps to get there.. 😀

            • Emil33

              Nice! Yeah it seems like a great way to get people back into WB trains with how easy this is for little cost.

  • kazerniel

    This is the kind of item I don’t mind is being sold in the gemstore. Pure convenience, not p2w, saves about one alt-tab and webpage load.

  • Suan

    To be honest I was expecting this to cost from 800 to 1000 gems, for 400 gems everyone should get it sooner or later just like Copper-Fed Salvage-o-Matic.
    There might be days that you are bored with current stuff in the game or simply don’t want to do much besides dailies and then this little fella will tell you that boss is about to happen and you just click it to get there and get some extra loot.

  • Alot

    This is the sort of micro transaction I love. Obviously as a business you need to sell whatever works but there used to be a focus on selling convenience items in the gem store intead of rng gamble boxes. I’m going to buy this, I doubt ill use it very often because there is very little i can actually get of value from world bosses anymore but its a way I can upgrade my character – which is worth more to me then gambling 400 gems on a randomized mount skin.

  • laserkat

    this is actually something worth gems

    • narg

      actually, its not, only if you are drowning in golds

      • dMb

        The bypassing of contested WPs, In game chat notifications and free TP for even your alts with 0 map exploration if you had any for 130gold is extremely cheap and CONVENIENT, thought that was the point of the gemstore, Convenience/cosmetic only items that you can totally do without.

        • narg

          this item is useles, even for alts with 0 exploration, 1st) what i know only 3 boses have their wp contested when active, Ulgoth, Tequal and Megadestroyer, when only Megadestroyer is real pain to get there from other wp, 2) first WB is level 15, second is 45 and next is i think 60 and 80, so you must have these levels atleast for to be available equip armor/weapon from these levels, and by that time, you will probably have all waypoints unlocked already. 3) 130 gold for casual or newbie is FUCKING A LOT of golds! its two and half months of doing daily! 4) if you are vets playing since beta, you know when and where to go for WB, you really DONT NEED this, so this item is not worth of purchase, only if you want support arenanet

        • narg

          i check the wiki now, and there is, that portal device can use lvl 80 ONLY !! its even more useless then before

          maybe it will be good, if can Dulfy add it to the page

    • PartyVeteran

      You know there’s this right?
      https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Event_timers

      • DarkSpirit

        It’s a free WP cost anytime, from anywhere, so why not?

  • Tora

    i was looking at the video, but i got distracted and envious of the speed of your internet Dulfy that you can load several maps near instantly

    • Veluta Lunata

      She edits the load screens out so we aren’t sitting there staring at them like we normally do. The video would be twice as long if she left them in lol

      • Exactly this! I just edited the video, I don’t load that fast lol

  • Ares Zax

    So this only goes to core world bosses? It won’t take you to any of the HoT/PoF metas? And I wonder if this device will be expanded if more world bosses get added in the future.

    Either way, it’s an interesting item, but at the very least I’ll wait for a sale before deciding whether or not to buy it.

    • narg

      it will be next 400 for pof/hot metas portal devices, as this is universal portal device, they can add any place what anet will want

      • Ares Zax

        Oh! You know what would be an excellent addition to this? If it can alert you when Orr Temple events are starting. Seriously, having to wait up to 2.5 hours for one to start with no idea when it will be occurring is ridiculous. >.<

    • Alot

      Also it’s a fairly shoddy ui. I will get it at some point (and hope for additional expac versions as well) but a chat box is not the way to interact with this thing.

  • tekmo

    for people who haven’t discovered windowed/borderless mode, and gw2 event timer website(that list all world/event bosses). There is literally zero profit(for a player) – would take any mount skin for 400 any-day

  • narg

    teleport device is for lvl 80 ONLY !!

  • Jalen Dmello

    Not worth it, pass

    • Man Man Lau

      save you 2 to 5 silvers every boss, pay by itself in less then a year even you only do the 2 big bosses daily.
