01/31/2023—January 31 Release Notes General Jade bot terminals have been added to the Black Citadel, the Grove, Divinity's Reach, Hoelbrak, Lion's Arch, and Rata Sum. Items stored in the "invisible" bag type are no longer displayed in the Mystic Forge interface. Players may now place personal waypoints during map cinematics. Fixed a client crash that occurred when exiting PvP matches. Fixed an issue with the DirectX11 renderer's autodetect best graphics settings option. Fixed an issue that caused the DirectX11 renderer to render some ground effects differently than the DirectX9 renderer. Fixed an issue that caused the DirectX11 renderer to render some fonts differently than the DirectX9 renderer on computers using Windows 7. Fixed an issue that allowed certain endless tonics to be used while in combat. World vs. World This update includes an improvement to weekly rewards, and it introduces changes that are designed to encourage direct player vs. player conflict in fights over objectives while taking care to not take the fun (or the teeth) out of objective defense. We’ll be keeping a close eye on these changes—both the player feedback and quantitative data—and will make follow-up changes as needed. Make sure to check out our blog post about WvW changes from last week for more information: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/wvw-january-31-preview/ Achievements New weekly achievements have been added to World vs. World. Completing these will award up to 35 additional weekly WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets and other WvW rewards. Additionally, a reward of 8 gold can be earned each week for completing the new meta-achievement. These achievements will reset every Sunday at 11:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-8). Warclaw Mount Increased the damage that the warclaw's Chain Pull attack inflicts on gates from 2,000 to 4,000. The Warclaw's Blessing movement speed boon now applies to allies in a radius of 600, increased from 360. Siege Increased the health pool of all ballista variants by 33%. Increased the health pool of all flame ram variants by 25%. Increased the duration of the Iron Hide boon applied by the rank 5 Flame Ram Mastery from 5 seconds to 10 seconds. Increased the range in which the Iron Hide boon is applied from 300 to 600. Increased the range of the non-upgraded version of the ballista's Reinforced Shot from 3,000 to 3,500 to make it more reliable compared to other ballista skills. The upgraded version from the rank 4 Ballista Mastery now extends the range to 4,000. Fixed an issue that caused players under the effect of Oil Mastery III: Increased Armor to be incorrectly affected by certain crowd-control abilities. Fixed an issue that caused players to lose control of siege weapons when affected by knockbacks, blowouts, or fear while under the effects of stability. Objectives We are making some changes to slightly reduce the amount of time it takes for players to break through the defenses of an upgraded tower, keep, or castle while it's actively defended. General Slightly increased the size of camp supervisors, tower lords, and keep lords to make them easier to locate in combat. Increased health of all supply dolyaks by 50%. Camps Increased the base supply hold size for camps from 100 to 150. Increased the passive supply gain rate for camps increased from 10 to 15. Increased the damage and health of camp supervisors by 10%. Keeps Decreased the base supply hold size for keeps from 500 to 400. Decreased the supply hold size increase granted by the Storage Expansion objective upgrade from 400 to 200. Stonemist Castle Decreased the base supply hold size for Stonemist Castle from 1,000 to 700. Decreased the supply hold size increase granted by the Storage Expansion objective upgrade from 400 to 200. Increased the supply gain rate for Stonemist Castle from 50 to 60 per dolyak. Desert Borderlands Increased the damage inflicted by Champion Asai Deftclaw's Gale Slash attack by 20%. Increased the damage inflicted by Champion Asai Deftclaw's Wind Dance attack by 20%. Increased the damage inflicted by Champion Terza Bowsahr's Vengeful Flames attack by 20%. Increased the damage inflicted by Champion Terza Bowsahr's Coalescence of Ruin attack by 20%. Fixed an issue that allowed Champion Prototype B-055 to be permanently crowd controlled. General Miniatures can no longer be summoned in WvW. This change is aimed at reducing screen clutter in large-scale combat and to remove a bad interaction with stealth that disproportionately affected players new to the game mode.

Just one problem: I can still see a lot of them. Well done ANet...

Known issue. They're showing up in Alpine maps still, but they should be off in OS, EBG, DBL, and EotM. The change to hide them in Alpine will go out in the next release.

Yep just tested, can still use minis in WvW, other people can see mine and I can see theirs.

My first comment was gobbled up by reddit, so trying again.

Known issue! They're showing up in inside Alpine maps, but they should be off in OS, EBG, DBL, and EotM. The change to hide them in Alpine will go out in the next release.

In gvg tournaments, after the first stealthing phase, we used to send 1 player away from stack with their mini enabled, trying to trick the enemy into taking the bait.

Ha! Clever tactic. Hopefully the same group didn't fall for it multiple times in a row...
