    If that's the case then that's changed since beta, I definitely remember them saying that the population displayed is tied to number of accounts. Ah well

    has never changed. Back in the beta, I logged in at multiple different times, and there were times of the day where EU was low, and US was high. But then at different times of the day it was opposite.

    It works this way in other games, as well, it's based on current population.

    But remember, it's not endgame if EVERYBODY can do it! /trollface

    Most endgame raiders seem to live by the words of Attila the Hun: "It is not enough that I succeed, everyone else must fail."

I feel abruptly liberated because the hearts have all vanished, replaced by literally twice as many events and a hundred more things to explore. The sheer scope of the place...

    Sorry if I'm gushing, but when a single zone literally includes everything from massive, maze-like structures and sunken ships at the bottom of an ocean, to vast catacombs and assaults on huge cities, to airships blasting dragons in the sky, I'm a little awestruck. Also, Priest of Balthazar is kind of a bitch. Everything here is terrifically dangerous to explore alone, two people is only marginally safer. Large groups are almost a must to ensure safety unless you want to move very slowly and dodge the many, MANY powerful monsters littered all over the zones. Events are nearly impossible to solo. I love it. It's especially brutal now with how few people are in the upper zones, but I find myself hardly caring.

    Wow, i knew what there was @ that zone, but you make it sound so awsome that i can hardly wait for 80 now.

    The boggling part being that it's a 70-75 zone (though I'm 80, just been clearing zones very enthusiastically), and there's a 75-80 zone and a purely 80 zone to go, still.

    My guess is that you must pvp a lot.

    ---------- Post added 2012-09-04 at 10:18 AM ----------

    Honestly, I'm kind of pissed that they haven't freed up all the reserved names yet. I know for a fact that the name I want is not taken, but is still reserved, via a couple of small factoids I've found through testing.

    Firstly: I can't add the name to my friends list.
    Secondly: Trying to create the name of one of my girlfriend's characters, who was also reserved by GW1, but has already been made into a character, causes me to get the prompt "That name is already in use" instead of "That name was reserved by a GW1 account"

    Wait, so this awsome zone you were talking about was the 70-75 orr zone and you have yet to explore the 75-80 and the 80 orr zone?

    Nope, I haven't even touched the 75-80 or straight 80 zone yet. I'm very much in the mindset of 'I must confidently clear a zone' before moving on, and this includes not simply 100% on the map, but doing the big, significant events, exploring all its nooks and crannies... and I'll probably come back to do those events again, too.

    That sounds awsome. I have to complete the zone 100% before moving on. When i was in Blazeridge i just wasted 6 hours just to kill The Shatterer two more times before moving on. Yea i lvl super slow, but hey, i like it that way.

    Side note: Crafting give extremely much exp. It's like, you get good rewards and good exp. Wish i didn't sell all those copper ores...

    So, I found a second jumping puzzle in Caledon Forest. The one with all the lava caves.

    Got to the end, and uh... I can't get through the force field to the splendid chest. :<
    There's four inactive security golems, and nothing to interact with!

    There is a little control center around a small corner next to the entrance up there. Hit that.
