There are further achievements once you get the title for those who stop there

    magic better than mithril . . .

    Also seems like the bar is going to move much more slowly this time, give more ppl time to find out about the event . . .

    You're not really missing much, it's just cheeves. But if you want the cheeves this feels like a good opportunity, Idk if many cheaper alternatives would be forthcoming . . .

    OMG! Just got a Tricolor Key ô.O ...from one of the reward bags for the achievement 'Mystic Forge 'Researcher"'. =)

    Just use it and get your rare item and bloodstone dust. At least that's what I got I think. I did feel a bit nostalgic when I got one as well though.

    Thanks for letting us know, I wouldn't have seen this if it wasn't for this topic. :)

    I have quite a bit of volatile magic from collecting stuff for the skyscale, and no immediate plans for it so I've been donating just to see what happens...and to complete the achievements.

    I risked logging out. I did all the achievements I 'think' I could do, including repeating the one for a full 15 AP.

    I was seeing a dev post via massivelyop article that said it will unlock a new mystic forge recipe for everyone, so I can't imagine we need to be logged in for that?

    There is also a dev post on this very forum . . .

    It's probably safe to log out, I'm guessing the fact that only ppl who stuck around last time got the karma was part of the bug? Idk but either way it's just karma, certainly not worth hanging out for . . .

    Leaving this here for anyone missing the announcement on the News subforum

    @Rubi Bayer.8493 said:
    We have another update on this event series! Some good news to start: We've sorted out the bug that caused the event to stall last time.

    In addition, to make the event less confusing, Wild-Eye Miller will be more clear that this is a donation as part of a global community effort, and will announce when the new recipe is unlocked.

    The new Mystic Forge recipe will be available for all players once it's unlocked, and players can progress the related achievements during all of the events in this series regardless of whether or not they participated in the first event.

    We know some of you are disappointed that you didn’t get to participate in the first round, and we expect future events will last longer to give more people a chance to contribute.

    With all of that said, we hope you're ready for the next event in the series, because Wild-Eye Miller is waiting for you in Lion's Arch right now!

    If they even added it into patchnotes it would have been better, because then bots specifically meant to notify players of changes made to the game would pick up on it.

    Well they posted it here on the forum and on twitter, which is where they told us in advance they would announce it. The announcement also mentions that the event is designed to last longer this time so ppl have more time to find out about it before it goes away. Always room for improvement, but I think they made a sufficient effort to inform interested players . . .

    This is implying that people actually knew about the event the first time it came around and had come looking for more information on it. Which many players probably don't even know the first one happened, much less that they had to look on twitter for the second. It's bad communication.

    How so?

    Someone estimated maxing the current achievements would cost 40 gold worth of volatile magic (if the VM were converted to crates instead).

    Even at current prices it would take over 70g worth of mithril to max all the related cheeves. And that's at current prices. Players unfortunate enough to come in a few hours late to the first event -- but not so late as to miss it entirely -- would have spent four times as much . . .

    But that's not what I was referring to. For me the fact that players who were logged in when the event went live and the players that arrive a few hours later sacrifice the same value is the real benefit to the magic . . .

    Well, it's technically there. The common section contains a "Pile Of Junk", Probably an instant consumable.

    You can buy shipments (usually trophy) with VM + Gold, and usually make money back or more. There's also stat selectable trinkets in the latest LS4 map.
