Having shown the mighty dragon Zhitan a moderately impressive fireworks display, it was time to go talk to commander Twig. There was much cheering… and a box of fun, that was fairly amusing. But after it was all said and done it was time to collect my reward. Amongst those items that had me intrigued were the 5 parcels I received. Upon opening them, I almost felt like they were a reward for a second as I saw the yellow of a rare item, but to my surprise it was only a level 39 item. As I opened the remaining 4 I grew slightly more aghast. To summarise I gained 1 yellow, 1 green, and 3 blue items, non of which were above level 50.

Is this as intended? Seems a bit odd, being a level 80.

I found the rewards for the personal story after beating the Final Boss of this game completly lurdicrous.

It could have been some nice skin for a weapon/armor piece, heck even a recipe for crafting anything. But we get 5 loot bags that give blue vendor trash of level 30. I really hope this is a bug and gets fixed soon. The story was awesome, then the ultimative anticlimax against Zhaitan and then the reward which was so lackluster everyone in my guild that just did it groaned about its stupidity.

I doubt it’s intended. I suspect it may be an issue with the loot tables, though if it is intended then…I don’t know what to say. Those boxes would go a long way in helping people gear up a bit if the loot was between the levels of 70-80.

They’re boxes that can give a random item. ANY item. From a lv 5 Common to a lv 80 Legendary.

I got 1 Common, 2 Blues, 1 Masterwork, (all previous of various levels) and a lv 80 Rare.

Well for a level 80 to get under 30 gear… its totally intended (already salved 2 sadly but i think that they were like level 11 and 18), also since i finished the last quest, mob drops dont seem to scale with me either…

Please make this retroactive for people that completed their story already. I was going to wait, but yesterday I decided to go for the very last mission and of course got abysmal blues from my bags. I know many people that won’t complete their story because of this.

also since i finished the last quest, mob drops dont seem to scale with me either…

Please look into this asap. If this is true the last mission will ruin your character. I also seem to find no LV80 loot anymore now that you mentioned it. I could be paranoid though…

You should send new items to people that have done it already, when i did complete the fight (note that i honestly think the devs were at the office laughing about it), and yes the fight is a joke… The entire encounter is a joke. And then to add even more insult to how bad the fight was… You get a troll face "here you go thank you for saving the world (for now) im sure you will need these 5 level 40 items :>

Anyway things that need to be fixed (note that these are not the only problems with higher level content).

*The entire fight is so buggy that you might as well remake it from scratch… There is NOTHING worth saving there content or code wise.
*The rewards are a joke.
*The cinematics and music and voice acting is not there / not working / bugged.

This is a fantastic question but im going to assume that those of us that have completed this are hooped on a new reward. They couldnt roll back the bug that people had for the personal story that skipped you ahead like 10-15 levels worth of quests so im going to assume they wont issue us a new reward either. but well see what happens

This I’d like to know as well.

I’m almost at the end and I’ like to be done with it – especially since the last part of the Personal Story just been killing hordes of risen (boring) and bugs which forced me to restart some of the events (and thus had to kill the same mindless horde of risen yet again).

But if I’m going to get crap loot I might as well forget the whole thing.

But at least, if I should get crap loot it would reflect how I’ve found the last part of the personal story to be. Tedious and mindless mass slaughter. /yawn

But besides that, I love the game.

I was surprised when reading this post to learn about the poor end story rewards. I am also surprised that ANET would not have had an end story reward system set up as they did in GW1. You’re a hero; you’ve accomplished an incredible feat… destroyed a dragon. You certainly deserve a special item.

Here’s what they should do: set up the same system they had in GW1 with a number of NPCs offering a selection of weapons in a special reward area. At the end of the last quest, you move to the reward area and get a token than can be exchanged for the item of your choice. Now for those who have already completed their PS, they’ll still be able to enter the reward area and claim their token without having to repeat the last quest. That way everyone will end up happy.

I mean items up to rares (rares all still work since they are a 70+ only thing or something like that) from mobs/bosses/chests on dynamic/map events, sorry if i wasnt clear (before i finished it i was getting 77-80 stuff on map bosses lik the svanir shaman and shadow behemoth, now all in 20ish range).

yeahkitteni hope we get something decent out of this i only just now finished the game an immediately had to look this up not knowing about it… i honestly thought i got trolled i don’t really do wvw so to get a couple of siege things and 5 boxes of random items none over lvl 60 after like an hour long or more (it felt like a long time it was dragging on for me because i need sleep badly)..

I actually liked the ending it was nice to me but yeah i would of liked some rewards for it as the instance rewards were not even level 80 things an there was no chest after the last boss initially tbh a few yellow or atleast 1 exotic would of been nice for everyone who completed the story… that they can actually use… oh well im rambling.. ill just try to forget about it for now.

Well if “it’s definitely not intentional” I hope who already opened it will have a chance to get 5 new loot bag via NPC or smg. (old ones gave 5-6 silvers in total), It would be a huge disadventage to make another lvl 80 to get the FIRST real final Loot.

Hm, another related question I actually had was if this behaved like GW1. When I saw the familiar “Everyone is cheering you/NPCs from your story talk to one another”, I knew that somewhere, there might be an NPC that grants you a weapon or choice of gear. Sure enough, in the last instanced celebration of this quest, there’s a Pact Requisitioner tucked away in the corner of Fort Trinity that you normally can’t get to in the live world. He says something about celebration being nice, but then says a nice weapon is better. Sadly, when you interact with him, he only buys your things, and doesn’t have something for you.

In Guild Wars 1, you normally received some kind of token to trade with an NPC like this for a choice of unique weapon for completion. I see the system might have been put into place for Guild Wars 2, but never got said token – and of course I’m now unable to get to this Pact Requisitioner.

If this is part of the fix, it would be great if those of us who have marked story as completed like this would receive that reward, if that’s what was intended – I loved them in GW1 due to the unique skins and would like to see this here, too.

I hope they retro-actively fix it. Rewards all around are an issue in this game, but this bug.. I’m glad I hear about it while trying to get a group together to do it. They should either close the quest off, or put a note on it stating *quest reward bugged, please note you will be appropriately rewarded in the future, submit question completion ticket here.."

Wish I had known about this earlier. Just completed my personal quest chain and I had somewhere around 120-130% Magic Find on. Sadly, my 5 Item Loot Bag contained a bunch of low level blues, a low level green and a level 80 blue wand. On top of that, items weren’t even usable for my class. I’m pretty much convinced that Magic Find doesn’t even work. A group member in a dungeon run found two rares with zero Magic Find, while I found almost exclusively blue items with over 100% Magic Find.

I gotta agree with Ghoulina, rewards in general have been a let down throughout. This game feels like it’s being really stingy with rewards/loot in general. Hope this issue is addressed and everyone receives some REAL Story completion rewards.

Between this and my digital deluxe guild influence + 400 influence personal story scroll being wasted because guilds are broken and the final elder dragon fight consisting of pressing 2 for 5 minutes, I’m really starting to feel like this game needed another 6 months in development..
