Besides the Lost Shores content and Profession balance/bugfix changes, here are a few things of note:


The first one is definitely something to make note of:

Quote :
Two new point of interests were added to Lion's Arch: Macha's Landing and Consortium Gift Shop. Uncovering those will not reward the map completion or world completion again. These poi will lower you over all map completion to 99% from 100%.


Quote :
* The drop rarity of Rare and Exotic weapons from certain places in the world (champions, veterans, and players in WvW) has been increased. Rares and Exotics should be much more likely to drop and every champion should be guaranteed to drop loot. This was to ensure that world loot drops were not a significantly worse way of acquiring rare and exotic items than crafting and running dungeons.

* The amount of loot that drops for downscaled players has been increased. You should now be able to receive level-equivalent loot until you are fighting at a downscaled level that is less than 2/3 of your actual level. You should also receive loot a greater percentage of the time as well as receiving a greater percentage of experience, gold, and karma. For level 80 characters, this means level 55+ areas will be able to drop level 80 gear and give about 75% or so of the other rewards. Previously, these areas would give level 77 gear at best and closer to 60% or so of your rewards.


Quote :
The Priory Explorer Plinx event chain in Cursed Shore will now occur less frequently.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the new items added in this update is a quiver for your back item: (Rangers, rejoice!)

[Reddit] Quivers confirmed by Isaiah Cartwright

Isaiah Cartwright wrote:
We do have some more back items this update. You will be able to find a quiver, we know we only shipped with a few back items and we do plan to add more."

From the Kotaku dev chat.

^^ If you scroll down the list of thread replies at that Reddit link, others have linked to various quivers, etc., new in the GW2 database as of the Lost Shores update.




One of the other new ascended items is a wearable version of the book 'Koss on Koss'! (This is one of the things on some random Divinity's Reach book cart)

LOL @ this one Reddit comment re: Koss on Koss -

Raypocalypse wrote:
If only Koss had worn that. It would've been a Koss on Koss on Koss.

Laughing Laughing Laughing

Lifetime survivor achievement fixed (as per the 2012-11-15 patch notes)? According to this Reddit thread, it still stops when you zone out of a map or log out, even to the character select screen.


Until this changes, you better survive that one lifetime in one area with one stable internet connection. Rolling Eyes
