Hate it when new content is dropped but no clear statement about how to start it off. That sense you get that you are missing out or falling behind because you haven;t started it yet, lol.

Really though, at least let us know where to start it off at.

After wandering around Diessa Plateau for a while and asking about it in map chat, a player pointed out to me that the “world event” icon is there, but the text seems to be blacked out.

I tried the Black Citadel, Lion’s Arch, but the text is still hidden.

Maybe it’s not "activated’ yet?

According to a dev post, the empty star graphic/thing has nothing to do with the world event, it has to do with the week long paid PvP tournament thing.

I too was looking for the event, the patch notes are as follows:

When I asked on various map chats about the event, people said that it hasn’t started yet, but the patch note indicates that it has started;

“Events

New Living Story events have been added to Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau."

So I’m confused :s

In the update notes it says that there are event heralds in several cities to keep people up to date.

Maybe check out the cities to find out?

I think it’ll be one time world event like ancient karka. So it’s added but there’s a question when it’ll be activated. Though it’s just my own suspicioun not backed by anything.

there actually is a hidden alpha behind the scenes.

I’m aware of the so-called “Alpha Team” but I wasn’t sure as to the details; I thought it was an internal team of players, and not necessarily in the pool of regular players with everyone else — or, if they were in there with us, bound by non-disclosure as to their findings in the Alpha Team test runs.

But as to the subject at hand, I want the heralds to show up…

@Asglarek, I suspect the term “Alpha Team” refers to their (assumed) pinnacle-level of skill and discipline, rather than the “alpha” stage of development.

Edit: “(assumed)”

•Starting shortly after the January 28^th^ update, heralds will begin appearing in cities across Tyria. Their task is to keep adventurers apprised of the events currently underway that are driving the Living Story forward. Be sure to check in with them if you need direction.

Check in with the heralds for updates.

There are hints of things to come already in the game.


The playable Living Story content will start appearing tomorrow (January 29) at around noon Pacific Time in Wayfarer Foothills. You will see refugees requiring your assistance along the path, around Breakneck Pass.

Later on that day, there will be events in Diessa Plateau. You’ll be sent an in-game mail letting you know about the events in Diessa Plateau. If you’re already logged in when that happens, you need to change maps to receive that message.

In Diessa Plateau, you will see refugees just north of the Black Citadel, and along the path north towards Wayfarer Foothills. You will see signs along some of the paths in the area.

EDIT: I apologize for the lack of clarity. I have updated the information above.

Only thing iw been able to find currently is that the mountain next to the path between Diessa Plateau and Wayfarer Foothills (Warmspring Grotto PoI) seem to have some heat ventilation on it, lots of warm air coming out of cracks. That being said, cant honestly remember if they allways have been there or not, but it dosent look familiar.

Though ANet have confirmed we’ll face no dragons during this arc, I think Primordus has had some involvement in vents spewing ash and smoke everywhere.

Would be great if that was in the patch notes, and where are these heralds anyway? I’ve searched LA and Hoelbrak, asked in chat… then i gave up.

Why do events always start at Noon when most people are having lunch or at work / in class?

Why not have it later in the day, during peak hours when more people are free?

Because they need to debug the new patched content before they release the event by throwing their customers to the Wolves of Disconnection Errors and the Clan of the Bugged Events.

so were looking at the 29th then. I guess what their saying is the patch get released on 1/28 in preperation for the actual event on 1/29. my guess there will be another giant build release at that point. And I went crazy looking for something that would point me in the right direction.

Will we be at any risk of missing out on any of the world events hitting the server around that time if we are unable to attend it when it starts? I won’t be getting home from my classes till like 5 Pacific Time.

OK, heralds will have the name heralds i suspect and they will appear prolly tommorow.

As for the information, i think its best if thats in the patch notes. Bit silly to have the whiole player base being confused and staying up till 3am to then come on forums and fin out they been wasting there time. anyway you got next patch to get that right i suppose.

I was on Diessa Plateau finally doing my dailies and I saw what appear to be “campfire” locations. There is a new tab on my Hero panel that says I should lit campfires, gather mementos and aid the migration; but thanks Anet for the notice that there is nothing happening til tomorrow. I guess it will be a lot like Punkin carving, as the tab lists 4 tiers…

Its not a one time event and it’s not a race. So what is the issue with when it starts? Regardless of what time it is, there will be people at work, school, or busy with other obligations.

Also, it was in the patch notes:
“Heralds
Starting shortly after the January 28^th^ update, heralds will begin appearing in cities across Tyria. Their task is to keep adventurers apprised of the events currently underway that are driving the Living Story forward. Be sure to check in with them if you need direction.”

They aren’t one time events, are they?

I of course can’t be sure, but I suspect they’re trying out a new storytelling medium that finds happy-medium between One-Time Map Events and incremental static map/world changes, by having those incremental static changes occur over the period of a week or two. You wouldn’t miss anything specific, though you might miss as much as you’d miss your first time through a map.

Or I’m overly-optimistic.

What makes you think everybody can stay home at 12 PM Pacific (1 Mountain, 2 Central, 3 Eastern) to play this game then the time is clearly geared to, say, GMT where it just happens to be 8 PM.

It’s becoming clear that they gear their events to Europe.

Does it really matter when these events start? They stated before that there won’t be any one time events like in Lost Shores, so what’s the fuss? You get just as much time to play it as everyone else, just can’t start until you would normally start playing.

No time they chose would suit everyone, and there would always be some childish people complaining on the forums, so why bother trying to make everyone happy when they can’t do anything right?
