Guild Wars 2 is nerfing Super Adventure Box tribulation mode cheesing

Can’t hack Guild Wars 2’s Super Adventure Box but really want a sparkly orange weapon? Get your runs while you can. ArenaNet Game Security Lead Chris Cleary has told players on the official forums that selling trips into the tribulation of mode of SAB is technically legal and not considered an exploit, but the studio is patching it out sooner rather than later:

“As of now we don’t have a problem with players doing this. While the late join is unintended, if players want to pay for this service, that’s fine. It does trivialize the skins some, but this isn’t any different than the skins from purchasing a raid run or a dungeon run (which we also are ok with). As long as the transaction is completed and players are getting what they paid for, fine. However, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to fix this. A fix is in the works right now, and that fix may happen before SAB closes or be there for the next time the festival opens.”

Been away from GW2 for years… The hell am I looking at? A game within the game?

Meh, it’s not a big problem.
The skins aren’t that hard to get either, if you get really invested in the SAB. It’s all about memory and repetition. A lot less stressful when you do it alone.

That’s fine by me. I’ve been super happy just running Super Adventure Box on normal mode, working towards a couple of new blue skins. I should peak into tribulation mode for the the lulz though.

I’m okay with these “cheesing” for one main reason. One of the non-tribulation mode achievements “Hot Hot Hot” requires you to get to the last checkpoint on the first map in tribulation mode. Not cool ANet, not cool.

And also, it may be cheaper to pay someone to complete tribulation mode if you don’t have the funds to buy the infinite life coin.
