Guild Wars 2 Bans; Sales Success

The Guild Wars 2 Facebook Page announces ArenaNet is temporarily curtailing their own sales of Guild Wars 2 to prevent the success of their MMORPG sequel from overwhelming the system (thanks nin), though the game is still being sold by everyone else. Word is: "Effective immediately we have disabled sales via buy.guildwars2.com. To be clear, box and digital sales are still available via our retail partners. We are tracking our concurrency closely while expanding our infrastructure. We’ll re-enable first-party digital sales as soon as we feel that we can do so safely." Also, Guildwars2 reddit has word on an exploit in the game (thanks Eurogamer), saying this has resulted in permanent bans, though they are offering amnesty for those who request it:

We also believe and respect that people make mistakes. This is in fact the first example of a widespread exploit in the game. With this in mind, we are offering the members of our community who exploited the game a second chance to repair the damage that has been done.

Thus, just this once, we will offer to convert permanent bans to 72-hour suspensions. Should those involved want to accept this offer of reinstatement, contact us on our support website--support.guildwars2.com—and submit a ticket through the "Ask a Question" tab. Please use the subject heading of "Karma Weapons Exploit Appeal", then confirm in the body of your ticket that you will delete any items/currency that you gained from the exploit. You should submit only one ticket. Once you have done so, we will lower your ban to 72 hours, and following your re-activation we will check your account to make sure that you have honored your commitment. If that commitment is not honored, we will re-terminate the account.

This is a first and final warning. Moving forward, please make sure you that when you see an exploitable part of the game, you report it and do not attempt to benefit from it.

In the low-level areas, the events do repeat quickly. That starts to taper out to a more reasonable level around level 10 or so, when you move out of the very beginner areas.

And what the hell are Trophies and what does "soulbound" mean? I have a shit ton of those, and they seem to have no purpose whatsoever? Is it just vendor trash?

Go to a vendor, click on the Sell tab, and hit "Sell Junk" to get rid of gray items (trophies). Soulbound means you can't give it to someone else. You can only vendor it, salvage it with a salvage kit you buy from a vendor, or drop it in the Mystic Forge in Lion's Arch.

My first weapon skill seems to have three effects assigned to it. Does that mean it randomly picks those effects, or do I have to mash the button so it cycles through the effects? (I'm guessing the latter.)

It chains them. Your first attack is an auto-attack, so you don't have to keep spamming the button. Hit it once, and it will cycle through those abilities.

I also, from time to time, seem to do a combo. The game just says "Yeah dawg! You did a combo! Word up! You can also do finishers!" and never bothers explaining what exactly it was that I did that was a combo, what a finisher is, or how you do one.

Don't worry about combos right now. Get a feel for your own abilities before trying to pair them up with another player's.

But a quick explanation: there are two kinds of combo abilities: combo fields and combo finishers. If you do a combo finisher within a combo field, a new effect will occur. For example, if I drop a ring of fire, and you have a combo finisher: projectile on your bow, if you fire your arrows through the ring, your arrows will become fire arrows, causing fire damage to the enemies. You can mouse over an ability to see if it provides either of these two effects.

I'm only now (level 25) starting to see groups working together to use their combo abilities. (Even though I still see people foolishly moving out of my healing fields. FFS, people, the white rings are good! Quit running out of them!)

Edit: Oops, that was in reply to Creston.
