Bug in announcements too?

Next week is 2x Professions event mentioning that Masterwork nodes give 2x resources. Is this a bug on announcement server or a ghost message repeating itself?

Does this count as taunting?

    Oddly enough - the 2x professions event has always included the drops from map farming. If your guild has the associated boon (don't remember the name), you can get 4x drops.

    I expected it will give 2x resources from masterwork maps as always. Will that be changed? I think I am missing something.

    I expect it will happen as usual, the only difference this time is that there have only been two explorer's charts available for a while, so there might be lots of people scurrying around Chult.

    they have removed some of the resources and nodes and also the new masterwork are not implemented yet. so what is the actual point of the event?
    they should keep it until they find a way and the will to fix masterwork

    Upgrading workshop for some players, stocking up available node resource for some players, crafting stuff for some players, ...
    Just because you can't (or don't want to) take advantage of it, it does not mean others can't.

    In addition to the things mention by @Plasticbat above, if players have the 'old' Explorer Cases the resources from them can still be harvested from nodes where they exist. Yes, the Explorer Boon gives the 2x Resources normally, so 4x for the event. If you had the MW II/III recipe books you can still use the old materials to make what recipes you can. The event also encourages the construction of the MW Vendors on the SH millabout and the items they have can be purchased with all those GM you earned the week before by turning in all those Siege of NW Vouchers and Defense Supplies.

    Here is a thought, make some items folks might need when Mod22 rolls out at half price while you can.

    And yes, all those new Bards are still leveling their workshops and enjoy the boost in XP.
