There are three in Lion's Arch. I think there is at least 1 in every major area.

Wow.... the new dungeon is super tough. Just completed one set of 3 fractals to get to dungeon level 2. Took about an hour and a half. I'm going to try another set tomorrow afternoon.

Aw, I missed it.

Just finished the Karka world event and got:

3 random leveled exotics (I received light leggings, a speargun, and.... I forget.) I sold them on the TP for around 6-8 gold total.
2 random leveled rares
A karka shell accessory - level 80 exotic earring with +25 all skills, +3% magic find, +3% something.
A 20 slot bag (yay!)

I said the Fractals are GD hard.

And that's awesome. Totally forgot about the event! We went to my parents' house for dinner and laundry so I misses it. Did you use those lasers we saw?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 18, 2012 3:43:32 PM PST
Actually, we didn't fire any of the lasers. They must be for another event down the road now that the area is permanent.

Yea, the fractals are really tough. I can now (sort of) run either the left or top run on my own with an elementalist, but we need 2-3 people to run the right leg for wisps.

Looking back, I think the underwater one is even more difficult than the swamp run....

I tried doing some of the early stuff, and it was so broken that I threw my hands up and gave up. Heard the loot is pretty good for those who did it, though.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 18, 2012 3:49:42 PM PST
It took about 2.5 hours or so from start to finish. There were a few points where we had our entire group of around 50-75 people get wiped out almost completely though...

Very tough.

Yeah the lag and broken quests were annoying so I didn't do that stuff.

I spent 1000 gems on those Consortium chests. Got a few of the coral item skins.

Nice. I haven't spent gems on squat yet. I'd probably just get a mini or glasses for Nimmi. I've pretty much given up on the regular Black Lion chests. I've yet to get anything worth having from them.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 18, 2012 4:07:45 PM PST
Yeah, BL chests occasionally have useful things. I wish keys dropped more though. I am saving for the upgrade to the digital deluxe.

Shame we can't transfer items across servers. I've got two of 'em, and as I stated above, I'm pretty much done with those chests.

Keys are account bound though.

Sometimes you get black lion salvage kits from them, which are AMAZING.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 10:03:24 AM PST
Yes they are.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 10:04:23 AM PST
Keys are account bound, but you can totally mail things that are not bound to other people on other servers.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 10:05:09 AM PST
Omg... I really wish I hadn't missed the event, that loot looks amazing. UGH.

You can still get the earring. You can trade 1000 Karka Shells to a vendor in the new area for one.

Those shells aren't cheap though... I think they're going for around 18-20 silver or more now. EDIT: Maybe it's 1.8-2 silver. I can't remember.

Oh wow. Do the karka still drop them? Is that per stack?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 10:46:33 AM PST
I think that's each, as it's a rare crafting component.

Maybe it's 1.8-2 silver? Still expensive. Someone was talking about it on chat yesterday. During 250+ Karka kills, I have exactly ONE shell.

One. One shell. 1000 shells for an earring.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 10:50:10 AM PST
Good lord. I have two so far.

Oh... and that jumping puzzle?

Might be worse than Mad King's Clocktower. It's timed (basically) and if you fall you need to run all the way back to the beginning of the puzzle.

This wouldn't be too bad, but the first half is on the other side of a cliff separated by a mountain.

I did find a little shortcut halfway through the puzzle though, which helps a bit if you can make the jump.

Also, after the main chest is an island with another chest on it... guarded by a champion reef mob... The champ practically sits on the chest.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 11:07:10 AM PST
So, basically, I actually can't get the earring. ;)

Posted on Nov 19, 2012 11:11:07 AM PST
Okay, I'm home on lunch and I just checked. Apparently I have 43 karka shells, and they sell for about 2.32 silver right now.

Hmmm...

Maybe they just weren't dropping loot during the event? That's kind of krappy. Damn Karkas.

So about 23 gold worth of shells.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 11:17:20 AM PST
About half, that actually. My bad, the unit price is 1.14 silver right now. I was looking at the listing fee when I wrote that.
