Remove keep requirement from warclaw mount

Shiyo.3578Shiyo.3578 Member ✭✭✭

Doing WvW without a mount is a completely unbearable miserable experience. Keeps are rarely taken, it makes getting this mount take ages.

Remove this requirement.

    Keeps are rarely taken, lol? Aside from garri and EB borderkeeps, they flip constantly.

    And if you claim they dont, well I'll take that too since you disprove that the armor removal made it a karma train.

    to be honest it should be harder. Even though it's annoying, you can still do it within 5-6h 2-3 days of farm if you don't want to hardcore farm it and you'll have the mount. It's really not much. But I understand that it can be annoying.

    Keep capture was a daily yesterday and it'll be a daily sometime this coming week because there legimately aren't that many dailies for wvw, but there are several keeps across all tiers that flip hourly sometimes twice and thrice hourly regardless of the daily.

    However, if you find yourself on one of the servers that has loaded defense, switch BL's because you've got loaded zergs as well and if you find yourself on a server that has neither defense or ppt zergs at your time of play, come in during prime. Otherwise wait till it's a daily and I assure you, the keeps will start flipping shortly after reset.

    Remember too that you don't need to take part in the actual taking of the keep to get credit. Just kill guards at an enemy keep and you'll get credit if it later flips to your team, even if that flip happens hours later. You will need to kill guards again if you swap toons though.

    There hasn't been a single keep taken on my wvw group since 1 PM today, including EOTM.

    Assuming you're able to just wait til prime time. They'll flip.

    Which is it? by your own admission, you've spent hardly any time on any particular map.
    Join a squad during peak period and wait for the commander or tag up yourself.

    In EotM, unless your color owns the map, you have the power to take a keep simply by tagging up and getting people to join (be sure to mention often that you're inexperienced and offer to swap with someone). If your color owns the map, come back later (especially in the next match up period, which happens every 2 hours).

    The times when your EB/BL maps are non-competitive turn out to be be good/very-good times for EotM, because people looking for fights (without pips) will migrate. Weekends can also be good because some guilds do some training out there, and you can piggy-back off their efforts.


    The one thing I wouldn't recommend: spending less than a week trying and insisting to ANet it's too much effort. I doubt they'll be convinced.

    I'm going to finish two reward tracks from scratch before taking a single keep, lol. I have been spending time in WvW.

    I don't even WANT this mount, Anet FORCED me to need this mount to be on an even footing in WvW. So I have to sit here and afk in the cave in AV like it's 2007 and I'm playing WoW. They have set this up in a way that goes against the entire reward structure and design of GW2.

    edit: Finished it at 39/40 2nd reward track by paying an NPC 6g to take back the keep for me from EOTM.
    Really unfun grind.

  • EremiteAngel.9765EremiteAngel.9765 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Relax. Mount gives an edge but if you like challenges, going without Mount is fun too.
    I have characters that I purposely do not give mounts to so that it is more challenging.
    After 6 years of WvW, got to constantly challenge ourselves with self-imposed handicaps to keep things fresh ;)

  • archmagus.7249archmagus.7249 Member ✭✭✭

    I think it should be keep or castle. People take smc more often, and it's harder to take.

  • Zephyra.4709Zephyra.4709 Member ✭✭✭

    Whelp, looks like it's time to go to eotm and snag a keep. It's free real estate. B)

    You have to take the naked challenge then, it is the ultimate fun combat survival challenge!
    Interestingly, I'm not sure if it was a dedicated rp'er but there was a naked norn dh contesting keep all the time, it was kind of funny. They were no PINK thief level though lol. I only say rp'er because their character was nude and even their username had that word in it :x I wonder if they have a background story for their character.

    You forgot to add "retired from roaming" in that paragraph :)

    **As for OP, if not EBG, then boarderlands flip regularly.

  • Zushada.6108Zushada.6108 Member ✭✭✭

    As others have mentioned, it seems on our server, the BL Keeps, particularly Hills & Bay and Air & Fire, flip frequently so it is more logical to go there or EotM.

    Aside from going to EotM or a BL, one suggestion I give to people working on Warclaw -- wait until Friday. Be in-game an hour or two before reset and you may get a Keep then because ppl seem to "throw it all out there" in the hours before reset (for me it is between 5 - 10 PM Eastern DT). The other option is to be in-game right before reset and as soon as the reset happens jump into a BL, join a tag and you will likely get a Keep then.

    Good luck!!

    Took me 20 minutes in eotm to get keep and tower. Pretty easy stuff.

  • Sinmir.6504Sinmir.6504 Member ✭✭

    Could ping in Team Chat, anyone for [name of keep]? See who rallies to your side. Also check your home borderland. I often find that if a HBL keep belongs to the enemy a commander is more likely to try to form a group to take it back. If you see that tag along.

    I don't want to be rude, but:
    1. If you intend to use WarCat for playing WvW, 2 days means nothing. This is a long game, you will have enough years to play WvW with mount.
    2. If you want WarCat only because this is the last trend, then 2 days means nothing. Continue and you will take the keep eventually. And you will play again anything else you like excepting WvW, so the 2 days are not so traumatic as you think.

    As an advice - find 2 friends (or 3). Go in EoTM and take a keep. Nobody will disturb you. It is a 10 minutes task.

    Why not give it to everyone without doing anything, if you cant even bother to get a keep then i dont know man...

    You mean like how PvE gets their mount for essentially doing nothing?

    it's just silly, if you want to PvE, you're IMMEDIATELY handed a mount from the first super easy PoF story mission. This means that you don't fall behind trains by not having a mount and feel bad for multiple days as you work towards it.

    However, in WvW, you're not handed it for essentially zero effort, it takes you days of suffering and falling behind/being slower. It makes no sense, and it's very clear the person who designed this collection has never zoned into WvW in their entire life. It's just a stupid additional barrier to entry to be on an even footing in a game that's entire design philosophy is you're always on an even footing because no linear gear progression and level scaling etc.

    Not sure who's the one who never zoned into wvw. You can finish reward track with potions within minutes and you can also flip a keep in EotM which takes just as much.

    Currently have 500 of them stashed on one of my toons, and about 130 of them on another. I had the warclaw fully unlocked within 15mins of the patch going live. Many in my guild had that light bulb moment, and one of our commanders, who had to run 5hrs straight to complete the reward track, afterwards started storing them.

    Unless you are working on a specific reward track with a goal, it's a smart play to save up your potions for future use. If at any time I need a Gift of Battle, or a piece of exotic stat selectable armor, I can have it within minutes.

  • ArchonWing.9480ArchonWing.9480 Member ✭✭✭

    The complaints I've seen tend to be more about the length of the Reward Track, rather than the keep. It was easy to get a keep on the same day and still is; you literally just ask people on the map if they want a keep, and nobody says no to that. Recently, I helped someone that was solo capturing a keep and killed the defenders in it too. I personally think Reward tracks take too long. Yes, I have hundreds of potions saved up for the next gimmick but not everyone can or will do this.

    I literally logged into the game after weeks of not playing to unlock the warclaw, it took me literally 15 minutes to get the keep achievement. The longest thing is the reward track which is finished with full boosters after like 7 hours...

    Sorry, but you must be really new to the game if you dont see where and when you can snack a single keep in the time of that reward track.

    Days of suffering...please, can you be any more of a diva?

    Your suffering for lack of a keep is nothing compared to the agonizing queues and hordes of mindless zombie pve pugs we had to endure when the Warclaw was introduced.

    EotM has keeps, easy to flip. I timed it, it took me about 14 minutes to get the warclaw on release day, and about 20 minutes to get through the login queue because everyone else was trying to get it as well. It's not hard.

    Yeah I'm new to the game because I can't solo keeps 1vs20 or hack the enemies accounts in EOTM to make them take my keeps back so I don't have to wait 4 hours for it to reset.

  • @Shiyo.3578 said:

    I always save pots. It's a waste imo to use them until I have an interest in something specific. That means no time delay for me when I need a Gift of Battle or to monetize during Halloween or Wintersday.

    No, there was no one taking keeps and my EOTM "server" controlled them all for the entire 4 hours.

    Often there are multiple maps. When there aren't, you can sometimes get someone from an opposing world to take a keep and retake it. Regardless, "4 hours" is just two cycles.

    In effect, you're saying, "if I can't unlock it right now, the requirement should be removed." I understand the sentiment; it's just not an argument that's likely to convince ANet that there's a fundamental issue worth their time, let alone effort.

    ITS A NO.

  • LMAO...... IS THIS A JOKE?

    From Reddit: SKYSCALE

    How do I start?
    Complete the story

    DAY 1
    Skyscale Scales
    Right next to Gorrik, near the cliff, at the start of the collection. By the Skyscale Eyrie PoI.
    Coast level, south of Pact Command. It's at the base of a pillar kinda thing
    Top of pillar, near the Pact Command waypoint. Get on top of the airship to get to it. Griffon or Skyscale recommended
    Cliff level, kind of high up but not where you got the blood for story. South side of a big tree at it's base
    Cliff level, on the top of the waterfall and on it's eastern-most end
    Effectively cliff level, on top of some tree branches
    Floor level, big branch leading over the coast
    Coast level, south of Loathsome Pulpit
    Floor level, acecssible in the same route you use to break his weak point with the new spear in the story
    Cliff level, accessible from floor level, north of Olmakhan Camp | Another PoV to help you find it
    Floor level...ish. Accessible from the floor level, but it's a floating rock over the coast so it's effectively a cliff. Can't reach from Coast
    Cliffs, south of Virulent Wastes. Not the highest cliff, on the back side of a ledge
    Floor level, in the Virulent Wastes
    Coast level, west of Burning Forest Waypoint
    Coast level and up a tree, west of Pact Command
    Cliff level, accessible from floor level, north of Olmakhan Camp | Another PoV to help you find it
    Floor level, you'll see it plainly on the ground right across from Pact Command under Kralk's scales
    Coast level, inland near Gnarlgrove
    Coast level, west of Melandru's Lost Domain Waypoint
    Coast level, east of Grenth's Respite
    Suicide level, just north of the death storm. Access from the north side if you want to live.

    Medicine Unlocks
    Volatile Magic vendors in Pact Command, participate in meta events. Once you do 10 events per lane, you will be able to
    purchase the medicine from the respective volatile magic vendor.
    Sick Skyscale Locations
    Right next to Gorrik's new spot
    Cliff level, but you can approach from either the north or springer up from the south
    Cliff level, just kind of hanging out in the open
    Cliff level, under the big talon thingy
    Coast-ish level, on ledge
    Cliff level, be wary of Hydra
    Cliff level, kind of a weird approach from #6 but you can get to it in a variety of ways
    Cliff level, simple griffon ride from 7
    Cliff-ish level, pretty easy to get to from ground level
    Cliff-ish level, on top of a tree
    Coast level, in a little hidden grotto type area. Grab an oakheart or portal to get back up quickly
    Cliff level, Kralk's wing again, but a bit different. Roughly follow the path shown - it goes inside a bit
    Cliff level, on top of a tree
    Cliff level, fairly easy to springer up to

    Egg Locations
    Floor level, near Gorrik again
    Cliff level, easy to springer
    Cliff level, short run from 2
    Coast level, but up quite a bit. Portal recommended to get back up quickly
    Cliff level
    Cliff level, on a tree
    Coast level, bring a portal to get back up quickly or be ready for a longer run back to 8 NOTE: GO TO 9 NEXT
    Cliff-ish level, fairly easy to get from floor level
    Cliff level NOTE: GO TO 8 NEXT
    Cliff level, short trip from 8
    Cliff level, grab an oakheart from the tiny marked circle to make your way up quickly
    Cliff level, on top of a tree
    Coast level, grab an oakheart to get back up quickly
    Cliff level, a bit of a stretch from 13 but quick if you got the oakhearts
    Highest level for Kralk's wing, on the same level as the roost
    Cliff level, a bit of a drop from 15 but be mindful of how far you go
    Cliff level, should be able to griffon to it from 16 but if not just a few oakhearts away
    Cliff level, should be visible from 17
    Cliff level, waaaaaaaaay on up above on a tree
    Cliff level, plainly visible
    Cliff level, easy to get to via springer from the waypoint if it's available

    What do I do now?
    You wait until next reset.
    :(

    DAY 2
    Saving Skyscales
    All of these generate waypoints for the zones they are in so a picture guide is unnecessary. The more confusing ones have additional notes.

    BEFORE YOU START:

    The Blood and Life first steps must be completed to acquire the buffs to get credit for kills/revives. Pick those up from Dragonfall and Divinity's Reach first. After that, I recommend picking up the first step on all maps:
    Dragonfall (x1)
    Divinity's Reach (x1)
    The Grove (x1)
    Brisban Wildlands (x1)
    Straights of Devestation (x1)
    Lornar's Pass (x1)
    Frostgorge Sound (x1)
    Domain of Vabbi (x5)

    After these initial unlocks are done, just pick a map and complete it out for all the waypoints. I recommend this order (but it does not matter which order you do this in):
    Domain of Vabbi (since you ended there, you can pick these up while you're still there)
    Jahai Bluffs
    Domain of Kourna (Get the Dust Mite Tornado one while here)
    Domain of Istan
    The Desolation
    Elon Riverlands
    Crystal Oasis
    Desert Highlands
    Thunderhead Peaks
    Mount Maelstrom
    Bloodtide Coast
    Fields of Ruin
    Blazeridge Steppes
    Black Citadel
    Bitterfrost (or Frostgorge Sound if you don't have that LS3 episode, requires Claw of Jormag event if that's thecase)
    Dry Top
    Sub-Collections for Saving Skyscales
    Skyscale of Water - Hanging Gardens in Zagonur Cliffs of Domain of Vabbi | Talk to the Water djinn (or event completed grandmaster) to obtain this egg.
    Ntouka Pond in Domain of Kourna, all the way at the bottom
    Flooded Castavall in Bloodtide Coast
    Derelict Delve in Desert Highlands (requires completion of Rune-Locked Doors achievement)
    Skyscale of Fire - Hanging Gardens in Zagonur Cliffs of Domain of Vabbi | Talk to the Fire djinn (or event completed grandmaster) to obtain this egg.
    Black Citadel
    Mount Maelstrom
    hearth in Domain of Vabbi
    Derelict Cave in Desert Highlands
    Skyscale of Ice - Talabaroop Waves of Frostgorge Sound | Marked with collection icon, short walk from the waypoint.
    Derelict Delve in Desert Highlands
    Thunderhead Peaks
    Biterfrost Frontier elementals or Claw of Jormag Event
    Skyscale of Earth - Hanging Gardens in Zagonur Cliffs of Domain of Vabbi | Talk to the Earth djinn (or event completed grandmaster) to obtain this egg.
    Quicksand in Crystal Oasis
    Quicksand in Dry Top
    Quicksand in Elon Riverlands
    Quicksand in Domain of Vabbi (one next to Necropolis)

    Kill +25 enemies
    Kill +50 enemies
    Kill +75 enemies
    Skyscale of Growth - The Pale Tree's instance inside The Grove | There is a teacher surrounded by students with the collection icon.

    Blazeridge Steppes (the walls south of Lowland Burns Waypoint where the Shatterer event is, up the wall. Requires springer.)
    Skyscale of Courage - Fort Trinity in Straights of Devestation | The only one of the initial collections which does not have an NPC. Interact with the symbol on a rampart near the waypoint.
    Camp Resolve in Silverwastes - East of the waypoint in the little hub thing.
    Joko's Sky Garden in Domain of Vabbi
    Pact Command in Dragonfall - On the airship.

    After Completing Sub-Collections: After you complete these, return to Sun's Refuge to talk to Gorrik again.

    What do I do now?
    You wait until next reset.

    DAY 3
    Raising Skyscales (Part 1)
    Go back to Gorrik in Sun's Refuge and interact with the egg. Then you stare at it. Stare at it super hard. Afterwards, talk to Gorrik to advance the collection.
    To progress any of these sub-collections, acquire the items and return to Sun's Refuge. When you approach the hatchling your skill bar will be replaced and allow you to interact with it.

    Skyscale Care
    Combine 25 Bloodstone Dust, 5 Globs of Ectoplasm, 2 Slabs of Red Meat, and 1 Charged Quartz Crystal to amke the Skyscale Food. You'll need 12 of these — you can buy from the TP or get the total 300 Bloodstone, 60 Ecto, 24 Red Meat, and 12 Charged Quartz.
    Take the food to Sun's Refuge to feed the hatchling. Feed the hatchling 3 times. (3/12)
    YOU CAN ONLY FEED THE HATCHLLING 3 TIMES A DAY. This sub-collection will take a minimum of 4 days to complete as a result.
    Skysale Treats
    Kill any of these creatures for a chance (not guaranteed) drop. Champion versions have higher drop rates. Acquire the treat then return it to Sun's Refuge:
    Karka
    Sand Lion
    Iboga
    Desert Insects (???)
    Jacaranda
    Sand Eels
    Rock Gazelles
    Sand Sharks
    Bats
    Skale
    Skelk
    Spiders
    Minotaur
    Wyvern

    Will try to find good farm spots and update later.

    Skysale Toys
    Buy these items then return to Sun's Refuge:
    Hardy Ball - 1 Gold, bottom-ish level of Vehtendi Academy. Look for the collection icon on the map.
    Bird Whistle - 2 Gold, just across the bridge of the Gladefall Waypoint in Northern Iron Marches.
    Heavy-Duty Dolyak Blanket - 3 Gold, Heart vendor to the west of Afgar's Waypoint in Central Lornar's Pass.
    Used Grow Lamp - Craft it with 400 Jewelcrafting + unlocking the recipe from Dry Top Tier 3 or higher (45-60 Geodes) or buy it from the Trading Post.

    These are all pretty easy to find so no picture guide

    And I thought getting the beetle (which I never use) was annoying. Oh HELLLLLLLLLL no.
