Heroes are back![edit]

Yep, I was right. The hero thing is now allowed. Haven't tried it out yet though. I remember that "argument" that was about how it was easy/complex to allow it though. Previously Unsigned 22:43, 30 October 2009 (UTC) now we want heroes to be avaible in scrims :> InfestedHydralisk 22:45, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

All I can say is thank goodness I did the latest Halloween quest a few times before they changed the reward. It's a shame you still can't use heroes in scrims, but gj Anet for reimplementing heroes into the gh! Shadow Runner 22:46, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
It's a good start. Keep it up ANet! We just might have heroes in scrimmages again soon. 22:53, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad Anet came to the sensible decision here. PvP problems should never damage PvE, and vice versa. I feel like there is balance in the universe again. Xiaquin Crystal Snowflake.png 23:02, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, right, "bug". Mo' like "Design overlook" --talk Large 23:36, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks I love you! :D *gibs you cookies* 00:14, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Large, nowhere does it state that no heroes in the GH was a bug, notice how it's in the Miscellaneous section not the Bug Fixes section, like you said it was an oversight which they quickly corrected, i.e. good practice.Lyra ValoUser Lyra Valo Sig.jpg 13:33, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Did they change syncing?[edit]

Did this update involve something with syncing? I was in Chinese district of costume brawl and noticed that it no longer started the mission as quickly as in the more populated districts. Didn't their last update to syncing make it so all the districts where throw into the same pool or am I just crazy? Rypofalem 01:19, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Only RA afaik. BlazeRick 05:34, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Allowed access to heroes in Guild Halls. Heroes are still restricted from entering GvG matches.[edit]

And there was much rejoicing in the camp! (also, all outpost guilds are being disbanded)User Kyle van der Meer Sig Pic.pngKyle van der Meer 04:40, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Hereos in Zaishen missions[edit]

What? Lol. So now we can unlock heroes with factions at Priest of Balthazar for what? To death-level pets in menagerie?--SharkinuUser Sharkinu sig.png 05:30, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

You're complaining because...? ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 05:31, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
He has a point?--Wealedout 06:07, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
^ Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 06:18, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Not complaining, just wonder why they didn't remove heroes completely, including Priest of Balthazar. Bt more than that, who cares abot Zaishen missions nowadays?--SharkinuUser Sharkinu sig.png 06:20, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I do, and I'd like ArenaNet to fix it - allow heroes to play Zaishen Challenge and Zaishen Elite.
To play devil's advocate - you can still use heroes in Isle of the Nameless (and maybe scrimmages?) ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 06:22, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
You can't use them in scrimmages (for right now). Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 06:23, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
And no point in using them in Isle of the Nameless... Lápi 08:45, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I do the Zaishen Elite every day (or try to... who knew trapping would be so hard for some people?)-- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 11:02, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
No point in using them in Isle of the Nameless? They are useful if you want to test something which you can just micro on the heroes Divine 14:49, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Did anyone think of using them in Training Arena?-- 21:54, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Do it all the time. Whenever I quickly needa skill unlock, that is. Harrier 15:18, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Has there been any more word on this, or is it to be assumed they want to take away the Balthazar faction farming in Zaishen Elite? Personally, I miss the opportunity to go grab 6k faction myself in about 15 minutes each day. 14:43, 18 November 2009 (UTC)


After quite some complaining yesterday, i think it is only fair to say "thank you" for bringing my heroes back to my GH. I am happy that this was (re-)updated so quickly :) ~ Dragon User talk:Zaishen Dragon 12:11, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

It's funny that Anet listens to the PvE community in a hour, while the PvP community has to wait a year or two for Anet to do anything for them.Insane Maestro User Insane Maestro Sig.png 17:20, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
I won't join the epic battle of "PvE vs PvP", but in my opinion there is a difference betwenn the nerf of a skill and the destruction of an (important) outpost. And while skill nerfes are the topic of pages and pages of dsicussions, because everyone has a differnet view of certain skills, there was no one (as far as i have read) who was pleased with the changes done to the GH. so i am not surpised this actually happened faster than some balance update, cuz this rechange didn't hurt anyone. ~ Dragon User talk:Zaishen Dragon 19:44, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
"...It's funny that Anet listens to the PvE community in a hour, while the PvP community has to wait a year or two..." <---- you made me cough up my cup of tea on to my keyboard from the insane amount of laughter that generated. I will be sending you a bill for a new one. Thank you. ~~ 19:47, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
1) I agree with Dragon, though the fact that a suggestion is unopposed doesn't always make it happen fast (take Shadow Form - they said they were going to sort that out ages ago and haven't. Bad example I know 'cos it is a skill and it is supported by some but you get the idea).
2) How could you type that if your keyboard's broken? :-) 19:14, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
