Path to Mursaat Token #31 blocked after June 4 Release (Ember Bay / Chalice of Tears, achievement: Token Collector) + temporary workaround [Merged]


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi folks,

 

Can I get a sanity check here? I started doing the "Token Collector" achievement in Ember Bay, and I noticed that the geometry has completely changed from all the guide videos online - even one posted just 4 months ago has completely different geometry in the path leading up to token #19. It appears that this path is now blocked off and inaccessible, and getting the token is impossible! Am I just completely blind, or has there been an oversight with geometry changes on this map?

For reference, here is a guide video for this token (but I looked at others, and their geometry layouts were also totally different to the in-game version): 

Compare this screenshot from the video with the current view in the exact same spot in game - there is now a giant rock blocking the end of the cavern:

EDIT: Right after posting this someone else showed up and said they thought it was bugged too - apparently token #31 also has the same one

The Problem:

Yesterday's patch has brought us another rock into the jumping puzzle area at the Ember Bay map. It's blocking the path to Mursaat Token #31 which is required to finish the achievement "Token Collector". This achievement is a pre-requisite to unlock the collection of the legendary trinket "Aurora".

The Token's still hidden at the same spot, but now blocked from access. Previously the way to get it was from inside the jp-area, near the checkpoint 3. It could be quite tricky, as picking it without a backup mesmer/thief-portal or rewinder-mark meant to repeat the jp from bottom or getting stuck in a little side cave while seeking for it. A jp that often poses a challenge to the non-jump-enthusiasts.

Workaround:

Currently the only way to get the token is by gliding out of the jp area from a higher spot until you leave the no-mount-zone. Then interrupt the gliding, and glide again with Jade Bot Glide Booster now becoming available again. Then glide back into the jp-area, into a small cave where you need to use the glide boost to get to the token spot.

However, this workaround requires the expansion EoD and at least a Jade Bot Core Tier 1. It's also quite challenging to execute properly and since we are talking about LW3 content here, this can't be the now intended way to get it and should be fixed soon!

Edit: apparantly the path to #19 has been blocked as well

Thank you! Glad to get confirmation it's not just me totally missing the entrance to the coin. What a neat bug - I wonder if a change to the model for the rock in one area of the game had the unintended effect of changing the rock over in Ember Bay or something like that

Nice work @Gim.4987

About token #31, it's exactly how he described it 😁 Guess I'll have to play some EoD story to unlock the jade bot now...

Let me copy from my reddit post yesterday, it might be more precise:

Glide out of the jp-area from a higher spot (preferably from the top, so you have some room for error) until you leave the no-mount-zone. Then interrupt the gliding, drop down a bit and glide again with Jade Bot Glide Booster now being (and remaining) available again. Then glide back into the no-mount-zone into a small cave where you need to use the glide boost to get to the token spot. Previously you'd have reached the Token from above (now covered by a rock) and could only leave the cave on the route I described. We are kind of cheesing it with the Jade Bot Boost now. It's not the intended way, just a (hopefully temporal) workaround I found for you.

Also a small clip to show:

Looking at videos and other guides of acquiring this token the terrain is completely different, The path to token #19 is blocked and there is a small gap that you cant fit trough, due to this aurora legendary accessory is not completable.

Is there a workaround for this? Will it get fixed soon?

I've seen a couple of posts regarding token 31 and 19, i saw that there is a workaround for token 31, but i did not see any for 19 apart from a person offering TP2F on NA server. For NA people with this issue:

Response i got on a ticket for 19; The Guild Wars 2 Development Team is aware of this issue and team members currently are working on addressing it. Please keep an eye on the official forums for any future updates and announcements regarding Guild Wars 2.

You are the best! :)

This would be great if you were on NA.
6 day's later and still not fixed. This is a bit ridicules, why the map adjustments? Several maps effected. Either fix it or just give up the achieves so we can move on towards the leggy.

I think those changes weren't intended, or at least just for a small number of map parts in shapes of some rocks, which are re-used elsewere. So those changes accidently carried over. A fix is due though.

Ciro's got it covered for EU, but for the NA gang I've got characters parked at both locations! Message Ossifraga.7208 and I'll hop on as soon as I can 😄

The HERO!
