GW2 October 30 Game Update Patch Notes.

10/30/2018—October 30 Release Notes

World Polish

  • Fixed a bug that caused several hero challenge events to remain active while the issuing NPC was not accepting challengers.

Personal Story

  • Tower Down: Fixed a bug in which the marmox could refuse to progress through the cave.
  • Tower Down: Tonn will now move to destroy the towers, even if he’s out of position.


  • Removed the deletion confirmation from the Limited-Use Scarecrow Finisher and Limited-Use Mad King Finisher items.
  • Precursor collection items that required temples in Orr to be captured can now also be obtained by successfully defending a temple after it is captured.

Profession Skills

  • Targeted Destruction: Corrected how damage increases are displayed so that they now show 7% in PvP and 10% in PvE and WvW game modes.
  • Overheat: The holosmith now takes a small amount of damage before the main explosion in order to prevent exploits that use out-of-combat actions.
  • Stolen Skills: Stealth that is applied by these deadeye skills now occurs earlier to prevent players from accidentally attacking without it. Slightly increased the aftercast so that queued skills don’t interfere with the stealth aspect of these skills. Adjusted the animation timing to fix a bug that caused these skills to show no animation while under the effects of quickness; this adjustment does not alter the skill activation timing.

They stated previously that sigil swapping for legendary weapons was not implemented as the sigil destruction kept the sigil market healthy.

With the new armor set requiring that sigil of (believe it was) nullification, I wonder if they allowing this change due to the mass mystic forging of sigils for the new armor keeping their prices up anyway.
