There's a new "Super Adventure Box" category in the achievements tab, anyone know what this is all about?

Based on the achievements in there it would sound like some sort of SNES GW2-edition or something ^^
So it is probably a new mini-game (maybe not yet in the game)

The super adventure box thing sounds like what some people have been speculating for April fools day.  Hopefully it will hang around for a little longer than 24 hours if that's the case.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the April 1 thing they're gonna do.  Theres a thread on the official forums that had a screenshot of the April update page, which had an 8-bit look to it, so maybe these have something to do with that?

The Super Adventure Box achievement names alone have got me excited. But I'm willing to bet it's another jump puzzle thing like the Halloween Clock Tower. Gentlemen? Get your Norn at the ready!

The guy who makes jump puzzles said he was working on a ultimate jump puzzle. That had different difficulties.

The Necromancer staff sound effects seem to have been adjusted finally. Ironically, now they seem a little too quiet o.o . But I vastly prefer it to how LOUD they used to be.

Negative.  When I spoke to Moto, he just gave me some boilerplate "come back for the debut blah blah blah".  There was no option anywhere else that I could see to use the token.

Huh, that sucks.  Can't wait to see the actual JP or whatever it is (even if it might be a April Fools joke).

New "Super" weapons viewable in the PvP locker [gallery link]

The shield, of course, reads "Super Adventure Box" when the sword hilt is stowed in the shield, serving as the "p" in "super."

Chances are it will have something to do with April Fools, but it won't quite be a joke. It will be similar to the Annihilator Quest (and its follow up) for the previous April Fools Day in Guild Wars.

Edit: Has anyone take it upon themselves to translate the inscribed text on this shield? It might likely give away some information!

The color of the jewelry on the "bun" human hairstyle can now be chosen from the customization menu, similar to other hairstyles:

GENERAL
  • You can now see titles under names [screenshots: one]

Why do I care about someone's title?  It just clutters up my screen.   If I want to know more about someone, I will click on them.

Did you suggest it on their official forum in a nice manner? i don't mind it but people like you don't, its in the response to people that wanted to see it better then before, they wanted people to see it.

I personally think there should be an option to turn them off, or view them with hover, or as you click a character. But by default they should be turned on. Titles are for no more that gloating purposes, they should be something to aim for, that you can show off, just like a nice armor skin. The way they were presented before made them almost useless and not worthy of playing time to achieve. In Guild Wars they were almost an obsession of many, in Guild Wars 2, they almost became something entirely disregarded by most.

I gladly accept the change, but as I said, there should be display options. Some of these decisions just... aren't thought through.

If you're bothered by the text clutter on the screen, you can turn of character nameplates in the options menu. Once this has been turned off, you can still hover over a character to view their name and title.

The difference is practically night and day.

I have it off, but the game still decides to focus on 1 or more guys (Even with all auto-things off as well)
Was like that before the patch already, but now it's even more annoying when making UI-less screenshots (green outlines/names/titles).

I've gotten a couple additional Coins from other chests of other jumping puzzles I've done.  I'd recommend looking into those kinds of chests for getting more of them.
