Get Past Campers in Eternal Battleground
I had noticed that the Mad Memories provided a light source, unfortunately it doesn’t work during the Pirate Puzzle (Weyandt’s Revenge) in LA but it will work during the Eternal battleground puzzles that you have to complete for cheevos. I was unaware that people were griefing there but this youtube video (with some mild cursing) does give you an idea of how to get around without getting bothered and actually gives you some ideas of how to get through and do some actual pvp since these puzzles are, of course, located in WvW.
“Are you the mesmer?”
awesomesauce. I’m not one for trash talking afterwards though :/

If you’ve got a burning question for our Ask an Asuran segment, please let us know!
A couple quick thoughts for ya’ll :)
1. if you’ve discovered something, you should be able to craft it if you have all the component parts, but it should calculate it all the way down to the raw material level. So if you’re trying to craft a set of gloves, no more insignia + glove part 1 + glove part 2 – just calculate all the raw mats & craft it up for a brotha!
2. The ability to filter items by crafting level is nice, but not all that useful unless you remember every corresponding level for every character vs apprentice to master levels. Some additional filtering options would be really useful: * character level – ‘anything equipable for xxx level’- NOT current level, makes it useless for crafting for alts * stat(s) – power, vit, toughness, mf? let me filter that! i need to see all level 30 gear w/ magic find — etc.
great podcast by the way, keep on truckin!

Hi Chris and Celeste,
MMO reporter fan here. I apologize about how late this comment might be, but I have been catching up on past episodes.
I can imagine some good reasons that some players to prefer Guild Wars 1 over Guild Wars 2. Although it sounds like a sequel, Guild Wars 2 is a radically different game from Guild Wars 1. It retains some elements of the older game, but it discards such features as dual-classing, heroes, and instanced world zones. It also adds some features that GW1 players might not like, such as the action combat system (with all that ducking and diving), and the jumping puzzles (needed to find those vistas). It doesn’t quite follow that GW1 players would necessarily even like GW2 at all.
The technological reasons not to switch to GW2 are significant. I get similar frame-rates in both GW2 and in LOTRO (around 15 fps out of combat and about 5 in-combat). In LOTRO I can handle it; the play-style is slow enough. But it is impossible to survive combat in GW2 with such lousy frame-rates. If you were a regular GW1 player with a decent frame rate and were thrown into the GW2 slide-show, you would be rightly frustrated. Me, I might check out GW2 again after I upgrade my PC.
If I had to guess, I’d say the reason that some players were ornery toward Celeste is because they had often been asked those questions before. This doesn’t excuse some players’ rudeness, but it might explain it.
(Episode 36) hey guys, personaly, being a huge fan of costume brawl in GW1 i was VERY disapointed with it in GW2.
that said, i loved the lunatic inquesition minigame and it filled that semi-competitive festival pvp game i missed from the GW1 costume brawl. i was also a huge fan of snowball fight in GW1 and hope to see it come back as well. good show and ill see ya in game. :P Jay (holly)
