Name one thing you'd like to see in EoD, and one you don't

    What I'd like to see in EoD:
    Warrior Pistol/Pistol

    What I dont want to see in EoD:
    Warrior Staff

  • Ototo.3214Ototo.3214 Member ✭✭✭

    Things I want:
    Good metas for the maps. PoF felt like they didn't give a kitten about them and they had to be modified to get people to even bother with them while HoT metas are still regularly run.
    New weapon types. If I had my way, some sort of punching/gauntlet weapon type. I wanna punch things.

    Things I don't want:
    A boring story.
    If the legendary armory comes out with EoD, it to not allow for alternate skins between templates. I dont want all my characters and builds looking the same.

    Top of my Wish list is probably my most unrealistic but Largos as a playable race.

    Something I don't want to see is long grinds, weather it be for achievements like having to run a 2 hour meta 27 times for the otter enrichment or something like the sky scale achievement, I just don't find it fun or engaging at all.

  • if it is only one thing then:
    things i want: lore achievements, lots of them.

    things i don't want: mounts.

    if i can name more things, then additionally:
    things i want:

    • a story that is not about the destruction of the world or a big enough place
    • old style JPs
    • new guild content (and not only for big guilds)
    • high waypoint density

    things i don't want:

    • big maps
    • hostile maps with enemies even in the most unfitting places (stupid istan, crystal oasis and beasically any of those far too crowded deserts)
    • maps designed around mounts, they're so ugly
    • hard content gated in some special mode, i want it freely accessible in pve
  • Thornwolf.9721Thornwolf.9721 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Wants:
    1. playable tengu
    2. good and creative E-specs
    3. Focus on Competitive modes like the original factions
    4. Solid maps that are the best of both HoT and PoF while also innovating on whats there
    5. Respect shown for what cantha is, and what cantha was.
    6. Cool cosmetics
    7. potentially new weapon types for core classes who need them, that then can be used for E-spec weps
    8. Guild content and a focus on guilds
    9. Guild halls
    10. set-up for things to come.
    11. The opening of the dominion of the four winds, alongside the tengu pc's as a city hub.
    12. underwater content, ships, pirates, sea based guild hall.
    13. I wana see/learn/find bubbles. I want Cthulhu eldritch horror story in an eastern Asian setting....

    What I dont want:
    1. Wee-a-boo cantha
    2. Anime being the prime inspiration, some is ok but DONT BASE THE WHOLE EXPANSION OFF IT (you know who you are.)
    3. Not every spec needs to be canthan themed, PoF and HoT were not fully themed for the region
    4. Id like the maps/story to treat us like no ones. No one there knows or cares who we are, do not make us the "holy commander, who is god among mortals"
    5. Excuses as to why they can't or won't do content, especially asked for content.
    6. more 100% focus on open world PvE with nothing else getting love or attention
    7. Lack of basic content such as balance, fractals, strikes and so on
    8. more mounts
    9. more masteries unless like the legions table they can be used EVERYWHERE
    10. no lore, love or attention for anyone but humans. The rest of us need love too. (Such as sylvari and the echovald forest... and the norn as well... can they feel the forest? Are there spirits of the wild there? Explore this.)

  • HnRkLnXqZ.1870HnRkLnXqZ.1870 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Want: Same as with Path of Fire, a story you can play, understand and enjoy even if you have never touched GW1 at all.
    Not: Watching Strike Missions getting placed on the discontinued content stack.

  • Would like:
    Housing (if it's not Scribe-related, or like Guild Hall decorating or Home Instance)
    More Skyscale-type collections/quests

    Would not like/not particularly interested in:
    Raids (but, that's just me personally, don't care if they are released for others)
    Materials that seem to have way less use compared to how easy they are to acquire (Eternal Ice, Resonating Sliver, Auric Dust, Hatched Chile, etc., etc., etc.)

  • Rauderi.8706Rauderi.8706 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Want: Megaserver revamp and rework of map access to spread players across instances instead of taxi-clumping.
    Don't want: More blatant-grind achievements.

    Want: Playable Tengu!
    Don't want: To see a single Largos.

    Want: Non-guild Scribe options
    Don't want: More off-the-mark enemies that do excessive damage or spam CC.

    Many alts! Handle it!

    want: traditional small group dungeon content, can be non-linear, some dungeons can be different sizes than others (with varying amounts of rewards depending on size).
    don't: loot boxes

  • lokh.2695lokh.2695 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The thing I want: Quality content that is testet before it's released.

    The thing I don't want: Mind numbing grind in the shape of "Do this meta 50 times to progress an Achievement that will progress a meta achievement that will ask you for 250 time gated materials and 3000 gold to unlock a new collection that you need to do another meta event 100 times to wait for a random drop to progress a time gated collection that is worth 5 AP and a title in the end"

    The things I couldn't care less about: New races, new weapons, fishing, housing, catgirls, cantha as a whole

    Why bother, just delete the official Forum.

    Want: Nice looking maps, maybe following the aesthetic style of core Tyria. I also would like them to be active with a variety of events to do and npcs to interact with like in core Tyria.

    Don't want: More long, boring grinds for things such as the skyscale and drizzlewood coast mastery points.

  • Mea.5491Mea.5491 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Want: Housing.

    Don't want: PoIs and other map completion objectives locked behind group content. (Don't get me wrong, I love group content but when I do map completion I want to explore at my own pace instead of waiting 30 minutes for a meta to start so I can get that last PoI).

    More hazard pay and more advanced breach training.

    Want: If there is some underwater content, and an appropriate place for a bar, I’d like it to have a jazz trio with three appropriately colored quaggans called Two Blues and a Green.

    Don’t Want: I guess this is more for the LW that will follow, but I’d like to see way more options available to complete the map metas. I never got shiver, and therefore the recent follow up, because that map was like 20% strikes. I managed to scrape by with the latest, but it was close. Need more variety and options, especially if the meta reward is something nice, like shiver.

    In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

  • Wishlist: Playable Tengu, lots of new armor skins

    Do Not Want: Playable Largos, new mounts

    Wishlist: Yukata, Kimono, and other asian-themed SKINS(not outfits) as well as some asian themed hair styles. Revamping all "useless in every game mode" classes like Druid(arguable since it's played in raids but I don't think it's worth playing even there), Scourge(arguable since it's played in strike missions to carry people through mechanics), Deadeye, etc. Dungeons where classes can use unique mechanics like stealth and portals to figure out creative ways to clear the content, instead of holy trinity only style of gameplay which fractals are. A new skills team.

    Do not want: More tank or support elite specs. Raids. The current skills team.

    Ah, this would be wonderful.

    Something genuinely pretty to wear so players have an option to create character styles other than HyperSpike McBladeFist. My only concern is that they'd still find some way to ruin it on Asura and Charr like they do with every other look.

    It'd go well with some of the mounts we already have too, like the Shrine Guardian.

    @ Thread:

    What I want is Tengu as a playable race, including their own city and starter map.

    What I don't want is "Heart of Thorns" story that feels like they wrote it in five minutes, half-implemented it and shipped. (The actual expansion was very good, its just that the story was almost cut down to nothing.)

  • I want to see Tengu playable race fully customizable. I don't want to see No tengu playable race fully customizable.

  • WvW Alliances, more weapons for base professions ... and a yellow submarine

  • Jojo.6140Jojo.6140 Member ✭✭✭

    Want: Housing
    Dont want: Playable Tengu. Seriously, why do so many people want that? The effect on gameplay would be absolutely minimal, and Anet would have to make all existing armor-skins and outfits fit for Tengu, and also would have much more work when introducing new armor-skins and outfits from then on. Spend those ressources elsewhere please.

    I want this as well. We seem to keep getting destruction of the world stories like what seems to be happening with the Icebrood Saga and Jormag right now. I've experience enough of these with the dragons and Balthazar before. The following is just my opinion of course: Living world season 4 had the best story in this game imo, but they made interesting character like Joko and Aurene "inactive" too early. I would have liked to see more involvement of them in the story. I think Joko was an interesting character with his sneering, mocking attitude and had the potential to become a funny long-term rival. I hope we get to see another character kind of like him in the future. (or Joko himself if he can magically come back somehow =) )

    The Spearmarshal's outfit on Mediums is genuinely my favorite look in the entire game. The art team rarely deviates from their established norms, but when they do the results tend to be very nice, so I don't understand why they won't do it more.

    The recently-added Runic armor was just, meh. And so expensive, too.

    Things I expect to see:

    • New elite specializations.
    • Revisiting GW1's four original Canthan regions.

    Things I want to see:

    • New weapon types, such as knuckles, spear, polearm, etc.
    • New playable races, such as tengu, largos, and sidhe/wardens.
    • Story instances gone away, completely replaced by dungeons, raids, strikes, and visions of the past; including an story mode for those who don't want the challenge.
    • A friendly Empire of the Dragon, where multiple races are united under one banner after the mistakes of Usoku's reign of terror. I want to fight besides kappa, tengu (Sensali exiles), dredge, and naga (resurrected when the jade melted).
    • A new non-human non-draconic enemy. There's a lot to choose from: naga mutants, gaki hordes, yeti warlords, or mantid swarms, among many others.
    • New locations. How about a desert to the east, where the mantid have a gigantic hive? A journey into the western jungles, where we can explore the ruins of an ancient tengu civilization? Maybe a trek across the mountains, where we discover the jotun origin of the yeti?
    • Some way to reuse the PvE zones into "split-instance scenarios" where we can participate in map meta events, open world PvP, and other activities. For example, the Jade Sea zone could have a bonus scenario where the three Luxon clans fight each other in a WvW-like situation. This PvP scenario would use the same map as PvE, and would be entered separately, so PvE and PvP players wouldn't meet. This model can be applied to map meta events as well (HoT had lot of complaints because the meta events affected those who didn't want to participate, so splitting into different instances is the best solution). It can also be used to represent the same zone in different situations, including climate (snowstorm has blocked the roads), war (the towns have been destroyed), and more. This system would be perfect to bring back LW1 too.
    • Alternate models for the existing mounts, which we could obtain by playing the game normally. For example, replace the raptor with a horse, the jackal with a kirin, and the skyscale with a saltspray dragon. This would let players who haven't completed PoF to obtain mounts on their own way too.

    Things I don't want to see:

    • The same Cantha we saw at GW1, with no story progression, like it was frozen in time for 250 years. I hope the old Celestial Ministry was replaced by the militant Ministry of Purity, and they're no longer a pile of useless bureaucrats.
    • Another "empire of evil" plot, I really hope Usoku's regime is a thing of the past. This kind of plots get old really quick, give us something original instead. Same for "end of the world" storylines, they're just awful and no one takes them seriously.
    • Kurzick vs Luxon PvP drama. I'd rather move forward to new stories, where we work together against new threats.
    • Shiro and the Afflicted Plague are a thing of the past and they shouldn't be part of the new plot in any way whatsoever.
    • The same NPC characters. I'm tired of Dragon's Watch, and I really hate how, during the PoF storyline, we never had any major Elonian NPC in our group.
    • Underwater content. It just doesn't work, and nothing they make will improve what we already have.
