This discussion started on Discord today, and I recently made a post to Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guild…_wayfarers_reverie_rumor/
This has now been solved! New unique weapon discovered: https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Silver_Edge
A new boss + mob spawn too on the cliff outside Sifhala.
This edit was on the Talk Page of the Wayferer's Reverie responding to an anonymous comment made 25 August 2020.
I heard from somebody who heard from an ex-dev that the Xunlai Archivists are a riddle or something. Some of the references overlap, like there are two maps with Kilroy and vaettir. Not sure about the cupcake.
Well, I was going to create a new note, seeing as I admitted as much on Twitter
today, but I'll just confirm this person was onto something. My apologies to the other devs for spoiling the secret (if we were still keeping it a secret), to the community for my part in hiding it without leaving more hints and confirmations, and especially to our QA for making 'em test something nobody would find for years. If you all get stuck looking for it and you need more hints, ask Joe Kimmes. Ha!
Matthew Moore is linking a Twitter post he made on 11 April 2021, replying to "respond with the best Easter eggs you ever hid in a game!"
There's a weapon hidden in the original Guild Wars that I don't think anyone's found yet. We hid some clues in the dialogues of some wiki editor tribute NPCs who only show up during the Wayfarer's Reverie, but...I think we hid it too well. Too poorly? Could have done it betta.
The NPCs are the eight Xunlai Archivists.
According to the anonymous poster, it could involve Kilroy, vaettir and cupcakes.
Joe Kimmes/old Live Team are the ones to can provide more hints and information.
- A "weapon", hidden in GW that no one has found yet.(?)
- Clues are in the dialogues of some of the wiki editor tribute NPCs who only show up during the Wayferer's Reverie.(?)
Some of us have been discussing this on Discord.
Legacy, what do you think: Is it all made up? Can we narrow down what this hidden weapon may be? Anyone (work out how to) find it?
