Guild Wars theme page
While many players are excited about the return of Halloween and fantastic new rewards in Guild Wars 2, a few not-so-conspicuous improvements are also getting a lot of cheering. Because the developers have also provided the patch for the Halloween festival Shadow of the Mad King 2022 with a few fantastic changes. Some players had wanted these comfort updates for a long time – the joy is correspondingly great. We take a look at the three ingenious new features of the October 18, 2022 patch.

These wishes of the GW2 community are being fulfilled
Clarity when searching for open-world squads: If you’re using the in-game LFG tool and want to join a squad, you’ll now know if that squad’s map is full before you request it, if you’re not already on that map are. From now on you save yourself the frustrating search for fellow players if you want to master a meta like Dragon’s End or Tarir in Heart of Thorns. Or currently want to explore the labyrinth in a player Zerg!
A blessing for Halloween in GW2: The developers have now added a function to the LFG tool that tells you whether a squad’s map is already full. Source: Buffed Mystic Forge now also uses the bank: Previously, when using the Mystic Forge, you had to have all the necessary items that you wanted to throw in in your inventory. But now the Mystic Forge is also accessing your bank compartments. Not the material store, otherwise the forge window would really be bursting at the seams – but it’s still a great comfort feature! Some players would now like a “toggle” button that hides the feature if desired. They think they are seeing TOO many items now.
Of course, evil tongues are now saying: The developers only brought this adaptation of the Jade bot skins into the game to sell more of the skins. But of course everyone knows that. But having more reasons to make something worthwhile isn’t a bad thing. Especially not when it’s an entirely optional purchase like a Jade bot skin. In this respect: Don’t be a Grinch and just enjoy the cute jade bots that other players are now showing off in cities.
What do you think of these changes? Does the Mystic Forge’s access to the bank bother you? Or is the innovation really great? Any luck with a Black Lion chest and a Jade bot skin? Now, are you more interested in unlocking a Jade bot skin? Write us in the comments!
