Guild Wars 2 / Final Episode of Living Story 3 About to Expire
« Last post by Talon on September 19, 2017, 02:13:25 PM »
Hi, Saga.

When Living Story chapters are released, they are free to unlock until the next chapter comes out. Otherwise it costs some gems to open the chapter to play, after-the-fact.

The final episode, episode six, of Season 3 Living Story leads us up to the expansion, released this Friday.

If you haven't unlocked this chapter yet, just by logging in with any character on your account, do so before Friday to unlock chapter 6 for free.


I am very, very excited for the expansion on Friday.

Spoilers!  Kidding.  :2funny:

Congratulations!  That was fun, wasn't it?  I loved that final battle.  :tan:

The good news is that you get to experience the entire Scarlet Living Story chapter in flashback form only.  It'll fill in some knowledge gaps, but otherwise best not to relive most of that, save for a couple of emotional highlights.

I believe Vilidius has a plaque up at the Black Lion Trading Company and VIP status.

I'm sure the OA meeting will include punch and cookies though they would not be free but at a fair market price. But it will be up to attendants to determine what that is.

Of course, Vilidius didn't bake them, he got them off the trading post with some sort of financial magic and far under what they are worth.

This is simply too rich.

Considering that I cannot forego Wiffle's proclamations of "I feel six feet tall!" or his on-the-run insertion of marketing taglines such as "Slick Shoes!  Like grease lightning!" I simply cannot bring myself to also silence his reality-bending exaggerations of truth.  Firstly, I've grown accustomed to his overstatements.  Secondly, attempting to silence him in any manner at all may fry my sound adapter.

So, I'll see you at the first OA meeting.  Will Vilidius be serving punch and cookies?  ;D

Mister Ewin,

We are delighted to hear from you and your expressed interest in our new event. We are encouraged by more members of our great city learning to evaluate valuable goods like a professional with our esteemed trading team.

Identifying items that you discover, or are gifted, is a valuable skill. One does not want to believe, let alone announce, that something received is of great value when it is clearly not. That can be embarrassing and disappointing, as I’m sure you’ll agree.

After much community interest we are holding this event as an opportunity to broaden one’s knowledge and to make contacts in trading circles.

Your registration has been confirmed and we look forward to greeting you and Keyes at our Black Lion Trading Company event tomorrow evening.

Yours in profit,
The Black Lion Trading Company


It's always been a problem, no one mocked more thoroughly than Tuppen who could mimic "that's valuable" with the perfect enthusiasm of the characters but with the nuance of a perfectly layered in undertone of sarcasm.

We really feel that the statements should be closer to, "great, more junk to fill up my bags," or "great, more ****", or "not another one".


Mixxi followed up with this:

Seller:  “I want 150 gold for this sword.”
Black Lion Appraiser: “But it’s made of sticks and pebbles held together with Skritt droppings. I’ll give you 5 copper for it. ”

Seller: “But that’s valuable!”

Black Lion Appraiser: “Look, it’s so worthless, I’m only offering the coppers because no one really has the balls to come in here and try to sell off one of these.”

Seller: “Exactly! You rarely see one of those!”

Black Lion Appraiser: “Look, if I buy this kind of crap, I’ll never sell it, and I’ll have a storeroom full of the stuff.”

Seller: “Well, you can never have too much treasure.”

Black Lion Appraiser: “If I give you a gold for it, will you go away?”



The point, dear guildies, is that while mocking it is fun, it seems to happen far too frequently. Ewin's been getting moody that I keep snapping at him about his lack of valuation knowledge when, no, that yellow item is NOT a great find but thanks for trying. The point is that there is an option in the game sound settings to turn off this player character chatter. However, be aware that it also encompasses other player statements such as when you receive a boon "I can outrun a centaur" or use a skill, "we heal as one" and, I believe, "help me!" statements of downed allies.

Otherwise, 'Over-valuers Anonymous' will start meetings soon.
