I wonder if there are going to be any new dungeons in the next expansion

    Dungeons as we know them are dead content. Fractals are the new dungeons.

    And please title your posts. You could have called this one, "Dungeons in Expansion?"

    Probably not since dungeons are abandoned content.

    Why bother, just delete the official Forum.

  • wilykcat.5864wilykcat.5864 Member ✭✭✭

    I still like doing dungeons. I like doing both dungeons and fractals. I really want to see and do some new ones.

  • Dungeons are not dead content. They are more active than fractals in my server.

    You "wonder", I know for certain: no.

    Well, I think by "dead content" it is meant that it is content that no longer has any developer attention.

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
    Casual.

    Unless their stance on dungeons has changed, it's a no.

    I would not be surprised to see Strike Missions though

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    Probably as what Randulf.7614 said: It will in the form of Strike Missions.

    Playing the PvE scene because WvW is just "BAD"...

    No, that's what "abandoned content" means like the other poster who got it right. "Dungeons as we know them are dead content" is something totally different and it isn't true.

    This I would hope for.

    I like Fractals even if I don't do them often but I do miss that big elite dungeon experience that Gw1 had and Gw2 never did.

    Raids are more of a high difficulty boss rush, Strikes are more of a (mostly) low difficulty boss rush, fractals are short dungeons, dungeons are just typical dungeons.
    We don't have that big long elite dungeon type of experience in Gw2 and I would love to see that come back.. even if we only get a couple of them i'd be satisfied ^^

    What if there is a 3rd mode for dungeons and a 2nd mode for fractal something like a challenge mode type thing.

    here is what I mean. This mode will make it so a player will race against a timer which will make it a challenge. There would also be modifiers that alter the dungeon and monsters slightly. There would be bonus rewards such as skins, random elite items, black lion key or chest. There would also increase level of challenge mode.

    It's a suggestion but it wont happen cause there is something like this dungeon mode in world of warcraft. But no addons and scoring this time.

    I liked mythic plus dungeons in world if warcraft and was thinking if guild wars 2 can have a dungeon mode similar to it.

    Fractals already have at least 4 difficulty settings each and many already have challenge motes.

    Yes and there is no reason why its capped so low. an exp group just facerolls through t4.

    I hope for more focus on new open world dungeons and world bosses as well.
    They gave up on fixing the old dungeons, doesn't mean we can't get new ones.

    “Open world” dungeons?

    I think as opposed to fractals, strikes and raids.

    Ok. “Open world” to me means non-instanced which was why I was asking.

  • I think it is important to explain the concept of dungeons and what you like about them.

    Both Gw2 and Gw1 had content that could be qualified as elite area's.

    What I like about GW2 dungeons is the difficulty level and the time they take. Something very simular to fractals. I dislike the difficulty progress and reward system in fractals. What I dislike in dungeons is the indoor limitation and the set paths and sequences. I rather have a bit more freedom and do different goals when I want them in a more open world environment. A bit like FoW, and UW in GW1.

    So what do you like and dislike about all dungeon-ish content?

    Probably not for the 3rd expansion. But maybe the 4th. The reason being that fractals are inherently, by design, a limited system. There can only be 25 without anet having to remake the entire system, and there are currently 20. When they’re done, anet can choose to add a new type of content for 5 man group runs, sure, but they could just as easily go back to an old one. There’s no reason they couldn’t add new dungeons. They aren’t obligated to update old ones by adding new. They don’t have to make 4 paths if they don’t want either, nor do they have to add new armors every time. It was the tradition, but dungeons have been abandoned so long it won’t matter anymore. And in a way, the dungeon system was never abandoned. Fractals are just single path dungeons but the premise is set in all time and space rather than bound to a specific location in the current time. They’ve got their own currency and the scaling system and all, but let’s be real here. They’re dungeons. The fractal team could easily make “regular” dungeons.

    I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

    I would like to see more open world content too. Personally, I miss the world bosses and would loved to have seen something like them in the HoT or PoF expansion maps.

    There is not much difference between meta events and world bosses. Some are just straight boss fights (branded Shatt, Drakkar...).

  • That's gonna be a nah chief

  • Dungeons are fun and I really do enjoy them but I don't think there will be anymore. I don't think they'll be touched ever again tbh.

    Not much difference between the end of the meta events and world boss spawns because they are usually both just a single tough fight.

    The difference I like between the two however is that a lot of meta events require many easy and tedious pre-meta events to be completed in order to get to the final fight, whereas the pre-events for the world boss spawns are usually quick and short. This makes it feel like I can jump in at almost any time to do a world boss, whereas for meta events I need to be placed on an active map that focuses on doing it or join a pre-made group.
