    I didn't wanna make a topic just for this question, sorry if it's the wrong place to do it :S

    Does the Dynamic Event like the Shatterer repeatable (without waiting that a guy finishes his chain quest and being grouped by him) ? If yes, is it a limit per day/week or juste wait random spawn time ?

    Sorry for this crappy english

    They are repeatable yes, you can jump in on any DE Chain whenever/wherever you can/want, no matter what you did before. DE's have unknown spawn timers and some may take days/weeks/months to respawn, so they will stay special and rare

    Need to find a better term than chain.....i've been trying to think of one that doesn't make it sound so...restricted and 1 dimensional.....
    It just makes ppl think it's a quest chain, which ofc it's not.
    Any ideas?

    don't worry:

    1.) Events like the Shatterer happen a view times per day. This is because Anet makes this game for everyone, even for people who have not much time to play.

    2.) you don't have to wait for someone to finish. You won't have to go in a group in the open world... ever. Just help the guy and you will be rewarded based on your active participation (doing damage, resurrect someone, can't heal someone in this game but you can produce regeneration areas for others, ...).
    -) people who participate actively from the start of the event get rewarded with a gold medal and an according amount of gold, karma (you can buy nice stuff with this karma-points from certain karma-vendors) and experience.
    -) if you come by later on, you will probably be rewarded with a silver or bronce-medal.

    3.) grouping in GW2 ist mostly for:
    -) communication in chat channels
    -) scaling your friend to your level
    -) show people your home instance in your city
    -) do dungeons (instanced challenges for 5 players)

    you don't have to group, all interaction with people out there can be done without grouping

    I think they may have iterated on that a bit, not sure if it is correct for all of the events. It was said about the shatterer-battle (for example), that this one can happen a view times per day

    Event-Trees? lol. Well, there are events, which spawn multiple other events... which would look like branches on a tree. No better idea though

    The Shatterer is an event at the end of a chain of events though.

    What we've seen of it is only for demo purposes, it won't always be up unless enough people push through the chain to get to it.

    Thanks for those clarifications ! (Yeah all apologies for the "quest chain" term, I understood the amazing system for the "event system", it's going to be wonderfull !!)

    But some events have unique ending-point where you have to confront to Boss like Behemoth,... or am I completly wrong ?

    edit: previous post answers my question

    yh.....i like trees...or branches...or veins or some such...
    ...just don't like chain....link in a chain. It really removes from the whole idea of being dynamic. Think it's confusing for the uninitiated...
    I think elite events (if that's what the shatter is? - or just ones with a specifc end encounter) are fine for chain

    Don't be mistaken though, there will be events with "cool downs" with days/weeks/months. Not saying the Shatterer is one of them, it's something I've read and we don't know 10% of all the Dynamic Events in the game, so who knows what to expect right?

    The devs call them chains, but you can push each chain back and forth, and there is plenty of different events from different chains up in the same area at the same time, so it removes the feel of chain abit, they couldn't create a truly dynamic world, it;s just not possible really, unless they had like 10million developers on it 24/7.

    Slave labour got banned remember so that's out of the question for a solution!

    yh...once u know about DEs there's no confusion........I just worry about those who don't know about them who will think they're the same as, for example, wow's quest chains. That would be.....unfortunate...
    And lol! yh...shame about the slave labor. We need more AI robots tbh It can't be truly dynamic...yet
    Don't worry Realities I wasn't refering to ur post rly ......just I think ppl are in the habit of using the word chain...hope we can find something more appropriate

    They seem to think cartoon characters = western, and anything with the slightest hint of realism = eastern or anime.

    I'm so glad I stumbled on this thread. This game looks amazing. I had no idea it was going to be this cool. Consider me a convert.

    I think this is going to be as close to the perfection of the genre as we've seen so far. I greedily await more information. Moar, moar!
