I downloaded in about 10 minutes...
That xp in old mails was kinda neat.
However! My Pumpkin Carving in the Special Event tab is now on 0, all of a sudden.
Still got my Master Carver title though.
I like seeing my bars full.

I decided I wanted to check out the changes to Straits of Devastation. Mistake.
I went from Rata Sum to Fort Trinity, at a cost of 3 silver. Not a very high price, I will make more than that just running around. I harvested a cayenne pepper, a mithril node, and a cypress tree... disconnected. When I logged back in, it bounced loading screens back and forth, and I ended up in Rata Sum again with a "The waypoint you chose is now contested, so we bumped you back to annoy you" message. Um, OK. But I lost the silver I spent on waypointing to Fort Trinity (note! never contested waypoint!). I also lost all the things I had gathered.
I tried again. Waypoint to Fort Trinity, but... all the nodes I harvested were still gone. I ran about ten feet further, and disconnected again. Bounced back to Rata Sum, lost the silver for waypoint cost.
I tried going to Sparkfly Fen instead. Ran down into Straits of Devastation, harvested one node, disconnected. Bounced back to Sparkfly.
Just because I'm a masochist, tried again. Wandered down to Straits, went to attack a Risen, disconnected. Fine. Went to the Heart of the Mists (since I had already "spent" plenty on waypoint costs). Went through to Lion's Arch, disconnected.
I'm done. It seems that any map that currently has an overflow is having real problems staying connected. I'll try again later. Or tomorrow. Or something. This is stupid. Grar.
I had a friend jump from vistas to kill themself so I could get the last couple of reses for my daily. I wasn't in WvW and wanted to go to bed.

According to the forum thread, some of the finishers (like Blast Finishers) weren't properly triggering it. Which explains why I was having so many problems with it, using just a blast finisher.
I like the idea of combos, but given how finicky it was, I'm very happy it's not in the rotation until it's fixed.
The crafting thing is going to encourage me to make food for guildies for wvw, so that's yay. \o/
Or good way to work on your food eating cheevo :3
