Fight Summary
The 1st encounter takes place in an arena covered in poisonous smoke that causes considerable damage which cannot be tanked for long. There is a single boss but he is accompanied by a considerable number of ranged trash mobs which can be easily countered with sufficient reflection/projectile destruction. The encounter is also extremely condition heavy, making classes with superior condition management obvious choices. The aim of the game is to temporarily clear portions of the smoke by eating the poisonous mushrooms emitting it while leading the boss around the arena attempting to mitigate the other sources of damage; all before he enrages after 7 minutes!

Most if not all of the following features can be disabled.
- Configurable map-timer
- Fullscreen crosshair for your cursor
- Datafile of Crystalline Cache, Noxious Pods and Airship Cargo locations
- Gorseval and Sabetha cardinal directions displayed as an overlay.
- Timers for Sabetha cannons.
I'm sure there's more, these are the immediate features I've noticed.

The only important question? Is this legit? Is this against the EULA?
To the best of the creators knowledge? No. I've come to the same conclusion based on the libraries he released to the public. He only uses publicly released APIs from ArenaNET. The attachment below is the open-sourced libraries I reviewed.
You can download the latest compilation of the DPS meter here and you can find the source code here. I've gone over the source code and have concluded that it's legit and in no way breaks GW2 Terms of Service/EULA.

With the latest release they've fixed the crashing, everything appears to be running perfect at this point.
