I wasn’t really sure how these worked, or else I would have made this sooner. But thanks to a discussion with a friend I have realized I’m not getting any of the listed world bonuses (gather rate up, craft rate up, faster endurance recovery, etc) from WvW. I have been on this server since character creation on the day of release, so there is no reason I shouldn’t be getting them, but I do not get any of the bonuses nor do they show up when I mouse over the WvW icon at the top of the interface. Most of my friends are all getting the bonus, but a couple of others I asked are not either. I could understand those who swapped servers not receiving them for X amount of time, but I have been on Ehmry Bay since I made my very first character and am not still receiving them.
These bonuses become quite significant (especially in terms of gathering and crafting) towards the end of the week, so it would be nice if this could be looked in to.
