Can we please, please, please, please, get clarification on whether the current state of gold repeatable conquest objectives (supposedly once per day per legacy) are working as intended now (once per day per toon) or if they are currently bugged?

This is probably the biggest issue with 5.9 and there has been absolutely no communication from the devs about it.

Musco said a while back that in 5.9 they'd be swapping the gold and blue icons. Working as intended.

<strike>Cite your source, please.

The blue icons work and have worked the same way since the new conquest system was added, infinitely repeatable. The yellow icons went from once per day per legacy in 5.8 to once per day per toon in 5.9. So a little clarification on that would be nice.</strike>

Edit, my mistake: what were once per legacy per day objectives are now repeatable on multiple toons per day, can we get clarification on this being a bug or working as intended.

There definitely is some confusion around the iconography in the new UI, especially for Objectives. For quick reference right now, Yellow icon means infinitely repeatable, Blue means daily repeatable, no icon means once per week.
Plan: With 5.9 we will be adjusting some text along with adding tooltips to ensure that is a bit clearer. We’re also going to be swapping the yellow/blue to be consistent with the rest of the game. In addition, we’ll be adding some additional fly text for Conquest Objective completion.

I believe the point of the question is this:
Are they switching the ICONS or are the now gold activities REPEATABLE per day per toon?

Basically what is a bug and what isn't.

Fyi this is what we meant by lack of communication. They cant tell us if something is a bug or not?

Thursday is a holiday in Europe and it will be in the middle of the day you take down the servers. Thanks for that
