Just like the title asks, Which patch is the best or your personal favorite? I was looking over the patches from the game and my favorite was Bazaar if the Four Winds. I had a hard time deciding between this one and Shadow of the Mad King. The reason why i chose Bazaar was because of the account achievement rewards. The new UI that came from this patch was awesome as well. I loved the fact that the new rewards system gave players a place to store a skin they unlocked. Its awesome that because of this patch achievement points actually mean something now. Shadow of the Mad King was so good too. Back in the days where gold was actually worth something, the best thing about this patch was the Mad King's Tower. In my opinion, the hardest jp in the game! It was so funny that the game itself told the players to be ready to go mad, and the did! So many people stressed out because of this jp. I liked the fact that it was this hard. I wish when we get to Halloween again in gw2, that they give players a title for completing this jp. Something like: The Mad Jumper.They both were good patches however, I tend to side with Bazaar a little more because of that beautiful looking place the patch took place and those account rewards.

So which patch was your favorite and why? >>Patches<<

I'm leaning towards shadow of the mad king because Halloween is my favorite holiday and they really nailed the atmosphere for it.
Besides that, it's probably between Sky Pirates of Tyria (because it had Aetherblade Retreat, which is probably my fav dungeon) and The Queen's Jubilee (because the Gauntlet fights).
My runner ups would probably be Bazaar of the Four Winds (NOT cutthroat politics) and the SAB patches since I quiet like jumping puzzles.
Completely subjective based on my preferences alone, I'm not really sure which would be best from a quantity/quality/features perspective.

We're already at this point? Wait at least one more year before this topic is relevant, please.

Halloween is always great. I liked GW Halloween more than GW2 one. It's mainly bias I think. Both are pretty decent.
I liked the Bazar, Crown pavillion, Clockwork Chaos updates.

Dragon Bash, mainly because of the dragon hologram in LA.
Second has to be Bazaar, because that map was just awesome, along with the mini jumping puzzles!

Launch day. Then it went down hill from there.

Don't look at me like that... Launch day counts as a patch. Right?

Temporary content pales in comparison to permanent changes for the better.

My vote goes for the patch which added The Wallet. That freed up almost a full bank tab for me and several guildmates, and it has made money, karma and various tokens so much easier to access across the account.

I second the Wallet as the best patch so far, but release day is a close second.

I agree with shanaeri and Desild: The Release-Patch was the best.

For other patches:

Temp: Halloween Clocktower, Labyrinth and 2 PvP Modes (Bazaar comes close; SAB1 was good, too; th rest was more or less shit imho)
Perm Content: Fractals (ignoring shitty ascended and shitty agony)
Perm: Wallet and lfg-Tool
