When is Lionguard Lyns and the captains council commendations going to re-enabled?
Because if not I would like anet to reimburse the items, time spent and monies throwing stuff into the forge as previous posts about this said re-stocking therefore should be re-enabled soon.

I bought a key from her, then went and made ~12 stacks of commendations for gathering tools and a few more keys (I have like 100 black lion chests to unlock….) and then she was disabled. Was not happy.

I never got involved with commendations yet, and don’t even know what they’re for, but the way I see it, if Lionguard Lyns is not currently providing any function then she should not be standing at the fountain constantly asking people for donations.

I only have 11 commendations sitting in the bank to be used, but I know other people had a whole stack. I don’t mind her being disabled, but what’s actually terrible customer service is how you can still make commendations.

ANet should either disable those recipes ASAP, or they should re-enable Lyn. Letting people make commendations while not being able to do anything with them is just wrong. Most people in the game don’t read the forums, so if she’s shouting for donations and you can still donate, how would they know that she’s not accepting commendations until they try to spend them?

I don’t really agree, but I understand there’re probably people that ground out 3k badges JUST for keys or something. Maybe they should just greatly increase the cost of the keys then. Something like 750 badges for one key or something, IDK.

Just thought I’d post to support some news on lionguard Lyns.

I’m at peace with whatever decision anet makes regarding her keys; I just simply want to know one way or the other because I have so many items taking up bank space- I’m waiting to see if I need to donate these for commedetions or salvage them for ectos.

While I’d love to be able to buy keys again, I understand if they remove them: just tell us so I can get my bank space back

I really think everyone should just stop talking about her lets face it she will be back when she gets back. Since she never accepts money she obviously had to walk around the whole world and couldn’t just way point like the rest of us =P
And if she comes back with no keys well its obvious because they were to heavy to haul back =)

I won’t lie and say I’m not disappointed by the lack of keys, but I understand it.

My only hope is that Lyns has something to replace them that is in some way useful/stackable enough for those of use with 30k+ commendations. The salvage kits and tools are great and all but the amount of them you can buy with 30k+ commendations is a bit… extreme.

P.S. I fully acknowledge my, and others, awkward situation of having 30k+ unspent commendations and potentially nothing to spend them on is our own fault for speculating. It doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to hope for something.

This is actually an amazing idea. When I used to DM in AD&D (2nd Ed) I used to take NPC’s that were no longer needed in the main story or module and incorporate them into the world as scenery. This not only makes the players nostalgic for the “good ’ol days” but has the added benefit of giving players a conversation starter for newcomers to the game. She already has a memorable name, so why not leave her to “guard” the newly build statue walking a path to and from the lighthouse offering maybe just the salvage kits or gathering tools for a small DE favor.

Considering how strongly Anet reacted to the whole snowflake/ecto “exploit” thing, I think they know that some people made a zillion exotic jewelry pieces (when they only cost 1 ecto) to turn into commendations to get BL keys. I will be surprised if after the “restocking” the BL keys are still there tbh.

…aaand my speculation proves correct. By the way, posting pics showing that you have 76,500 tokens probably didn’t help your case. That’s 268 keys, costing over 24,000 gems, or $300.

Well I never got in on the keys. By the time I heard about it she was shut down. I would like to stock up on a few of the 250 salvage kits tho when she comes back around so I’m glad about that. Wish they would have left the keys but doubled or tripled the price of them so they weren’t cheaper than buying with gems. Also left her permanently, even if they put a cap on how many commendations you could get in the lifetime of your account.

While I hope that’s the case, that’s reading a lot into Linsey’s post. The only thing that is really confirmed here is that Commendations-to-BL keys is out, and that Commendations are out entirely soon. It seems more likely that ANet would just revise the already-existing commendations system than strip it out and replace it with a new system that does more or less the same thing.

Looks like I’m in a similar position to Unspecified. I’m disappointed but understand that the BLC keys were hurting their sales. I think the fact that I’m not on very often any more has softened the blow.

It’s all still not good the way this was handled. The only comment given about this before was that Lyns would still be here through Wintersday which was massively misguiding. The ability to exchance then removed without warning. No comment given besides she will be back eventually.

Meh, whatever. I hope she has “restocked” with at least something useful to me. Like unspecified said, there’s only so many picks we can carry lol.

Yeah, I had enough commendation to get around 1200 keys. I’m begging you please to just greatly increase the cost of the keys. 500-1000 commendations per key is reasonable. Removing them entirely while you left the donation recipe still active is really unfair. You should have disabled the recipe when you disabled the vendor. I had my commendations before I noticed the vendor was disabled.

If they limited the amount of total keys you could get per account to something low like 5, it would still allow some to take advantage without breaking the system. Players can do this already with gold/gem conversion and buy them outright, this would just be a different way by wrapping extra wood and ore.

If players wanted to spend another $30+ IRL money to buy a second copy and make a new account, hey ANET still get’s a share, win win all around.

I don’t get it, I’m not going to complain, but… Why are you even putting her back in if you are going to remover her again in a months time?

As other have said: I can understand removing the keys. But why the charades? It would of been 110% ok if you took out the recipe to make the commendations, announced Lyns will be leaving in a month, then took her out.
And why leave her there to tempt people with false advertising? That just makes it that much more messed up – letting people think she’ll be back.
I don’t know your plans for her inventory, but I sincerely hope she has something useful for large amounts of commendations. If not, at least add a mystic forge recipe to be a bit realistic with what will happen: 1,000 stacks of sturdy harvesting tools gives you an endless harvesting tool.

I absolutely despised the voice and I was constantly annoyed by it every time I ran past her in LA. I really hope they don’t use her again, or if they do it’s very sparingly. I cringed when I heard her used again in Wintersday.

I’ve noticed they are getting the same voice actors to do multiple bits of content in succession with the updates (like the FotM voice) and, at least in my experience, this is causing them to become really annoying and immersion breaking.

Well that’s nothing short of disappointing. I was hoping to trade the commendations for keys… they could just increase the pricing of the keys so that people who spent gold getting those commendations can still get what they originally wanted. That would have been a better move in my opinion.

I guess they wouldn’t care so now I’m gunna end up with a inventory full of salvage kits. yay.

Yeah, I agree with you. I’ve bought those keys with purchased gems before… the “reward” for opening those boxes are kind of ehhh… You spend $10 to get some influence for your guild, probably like 20 silver, and some random crap you probably will never use and takes space in ur storage.

If the loot from the chests aren’t that great then the keys should be easier to obtain.
If the keys are harder and more expensive to obtain, the loot should be better.

Of course this is all my opinion.

Taking away keys without advance warning would be a major dick move.

Dick Move confirmed.

Other Dick Moves confirmed as part of dealing with the terrible, inexcusable tragedy of players finding a cheaper way to get an item which is for sale in the gem store:

- Disabling Lyns but NOT disabling the wrapping paper from Myani.
- Disabling Lyns but NOT disabling the Mystic forge recipe to convert your loot into now worthless commendations.
- Disabling Lyns WITHOUT disabling her shouting every 5 minutes to go get commendations.

This catastrophe has John Smith’s fingerprints all over it, it’s another of his precious junk sinks that do absolutely nothing to take out the over-supply of junk items, but annoy everyone in the process.

In actuality all that happens is people find the most efficient recipe to get the most reward from the junk sink and set out to deliberately farm it, thus increasing the junk over-supply, not reducing.

Silly billies.
