    Well we made it and since I had 1 million Karma on my mesmer I decided to blow it on obsidian boxes, here are the results:

    The orange potion is a hard potion in case you are wondering and the blue things were 1G25s per 250 at the merchant

    A plan? What a novel concept!
    That was quite fun, we topped out at 2 parties, though only 3 of us eventually made it to the target location.

    I could be tempted to try this dungeon again. Last time was.... less then successful and I want my revenge.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    Make sure to spend all your remaining Zhaitaffy on food at the merchant. Sorted by importance, he has food with lifesteal on crit, condition duration, magic find, and +5% karma, so most of the popular choices.

    I don't know what ArenaNet were thinking devaluing the handful remaining craftable useful food items for months to come, but there you go.

    cool stuff, a new zone, I like that, it seems a lot for only a 2 week window, specially since a lot of people are starting to be on holidays around this time of the year (like myself)

    The zone is around for 4 weeks, and I guess the other activities will be too.

    Pretty meaty patch considering how much we've had in the last few weeks. Their turnaround on large updates is getting pretty impressive. Now bring on some interesting story, please...

    Thoughts. Good stuff:

    Scavenger hunt - sounds fun, particularly the ninja 3D stuff. My thief is excited already
    Minigames - not all are my cup of tea, but generally I approve
    New crafting
    Achievement point rewards. Fairly simple, flexible, no new currencies, some nicish skins
    Backpieces - wow!
    radiant armour quite tasty too

    Bad stuff:
    Time limited zone - why oh why! 4 weeks is better than 2, but there really is no excuse
    Zhaitaffy now has a use. Huge TP price swing incoming, and revealing this after folk have disposed of it all is really ****ty
    Another achievement in EB jumping puzzle.

    Yeah, I think we're stuck with this temporary content trend for the foreseeable future. Unless/until they start to sense that people are playing *less* because they can't be bothered to invest time in temporary content, anet will continue to believe that the best way to keep their revenue streams constant is regular new content that people *have* to log in for on pain of missing it.

    I agree, though, that this undermines one of the central benefits of a non-subscription MMO: that is, the feeling that you don't *need* to play all the time because you're not paying a monthly fee. The way things are now, one feels this obligation to play very regularly out of fear of missing something.

    I hate hate hate it when they do stuff like this. Grrr, I've just spent several thousands of Z. on food. Not the worst scenario by far I guess, but still... GRRR.

    They did admit that due to feedback they're going to focus less on temporary content. This may turn out to mean little in the grand scheme but hopefully it's a start.

    The temporary content is imo the worst thing in the game atm and creates a really static world, you go away for 2 months and due to everything being temporary the only that's changed is that a few more people have weird backpacks.

    But I do like the look of the achievement rewards and this event does look amusing, but there's no reason at all it has to go away again. This all looks perfect for a permanent additional zone for those that like jumping puzzly bits.

    He's a video overview to go with the dulfy stuff.

    I agree and disagree, the only problem I have is for the time limit that was 2 weeks but a month I can live with. But I also feel that my money has been invested wisely into something that renews itself without having to pay a fee for an add on.
    People keep saying things like: "when are they introducing achievement prizes, when are they doing the quests for the precursors?" and then the same people moan about new things coming in.
    Yes the story could be better I think we all agree on that and the interlink between them should be permanent so I kinda get that they want zhaitaffies to be useful for the next stuff to come but that's cosmetic and they should rather keep influencing the world a bit more.
