GW2 and 2021

What did you guys accomplish on your accounts in 2020 and what are your goals for 2021?

My goal for 2021 is to finish all the WvW mistforged triumphant legendary armor sets.

If your team wins it's because of everyone else. If your team loses, blame the thief.
ranger is OP but holo is more OP so its fine
Why do this matter at all, you have people asking you why play so bad as fractal god?
If they would pull that kitten on me, i would sue instantly. And i have enough time and money to finish that.
Balance? More like a bunch of random nerfs done by interns.
They're far from useless...you just got used to busted levels of dmg...welcome back to planet earth
The first time someone sees you, they're already thinking about kicking you out of the party..........

  • I skipped a bunch of Mastery Points in HoT. My goal is to get them and finish my last 2 Mastery lines for that expansion.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    My goal is to reach 45k AP, or maybe 50k by the end of the year

    I'm going to try and make my first Legendary and finish grinding for full Ascended gear for my Firebrand. (I'm a little over half way there. :O )

    Dropping the game eventually (the devs responsible for the competitive modes lost every credit they had over the years).

    Chances are good, as covid and home office might end and social life might raise again this year.

    I started my very first legendary when the Armory was announced.
    My Goal for 2021 is to continue what I've been doing since and fill up as much of the soon to be armory as I can.

  • Made my first 2 Legendary Weapons in 2020; perhaps, another one or two in 2021. (First one bought the Precursor, second one crafted the Precursor.)
    Really just looking forward to End of Dragons and Cantha.

    Might finish off a few long term projects like my 10th/11th legendaries which have been ongoing for over 2 years now.

    My main goal - if I actually stick to it - would be to bring all my alts up to speed before EoD.

    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. . .

    I hope I'll get some WvW legendary armor this year, as well as finish up some achievements that have been sitting around for a long time, that I put on hold and pretty much forgot about. The Otter infusion is probably the next thing I'll finish.

    2020 - Levelled up 2nd character (1st one was 2 years before) and this time played through all the expansions, LW, most dungeons and T2 fractals. Spent too much time playing, so ended up with ascended set, portal scrolls and various weapon skins. (while kicking myself for not spending more time on RL issues)

    2021 - Sleepwalk through the replacement content for the rest of LW5 while taking breaks in between until EoD hits, then whine about the lag on new maps (you don't really think lockdown will end this year do you?) before taking a break and finishing it some time later. (while kicking myself for not spending more time on RL issues)

    I wouldn't try to plan for a whole year. Firstly there's a very good chance my priorities will change when new releases come along, but I also don't want to get too attached to the idea of doing certain things and end up forcing myself to do it even if I'm not enjoying it. Instead I have a mental list of stuff I want to at some point, roughly in order of priority and I do whatever appeals to me most currently.

    Things currently near the top of that list are starting another legendary if I can choose between Exordium and Nevermore, finishing the masteries I haven't completed yet (I never actually got around to doing the underwater skimmer one, even though I like the idea of an underwater mount), finshing various storylines on characters who are part-way through and getting my last few permanent characters up to level 80.

    Like when PoF was announced, I made sure all my classes were ready to purchase the full elite specs. That way I can enjoy the classes in full with the content it was released in.

    As usual, I'll try to 100% Living World episodes as they come out. However, Icebrood Saga will have a lot of hard passes. 50 Cold Wars? No thank you. I try to 100% everything (no thank you, raids) since Season 2. Honorary Crew Member is impossible in a dead map. If I don't get hard carried in this stuff, I'll never complete these ridiculous things from the strain of not falling asleep.

    As for the account itself, I'm just getting ready for when new legendaries release and better methods to get legendary armor and the rest of the trinkets.

    Well, from being a complete new player I got to somewhat experience player. I found a best raid training guild, where I got the best static I could dream of. And I also got my first lege!

    My goal is to get full lege for my ranger and gear all alts.

    my goal is to not put my hopes up no matter how much they hype stuff, they have done plenty in the past and they never fail to disappoint.

    Yeah, after The Champions, I think, this is the best strategy. Don't wait for anything good, especially from EotD. If it will be just as quality as champs, you won't be disappointed, and if it'll be something good, you'll be surprised in a good way.

    I think, I should set it as my goal as well, lol

    Whatever do you mean, surely alliances will come with EoD.

    I finalized my design for my Flame Shaman (elementalist) Charr, and started an Olmakhan (druid) design. One of my goal is to finish that design

    I also accompanied a friend from her first steps to starting Heart of Thorns. My goal is to potentially have more people follow that path, guildies or not.

    To make the WvW legendary set and to play EoD

    To have fun. That should be no problem - the game is fun! Maybe to have more fun than last year...

  • Svennis.3852Svennis.3852 Member ✭✭✭

    My goal is to play my alts more and learn different classes. I have a bad habit of only playing my main. I’ve only completed the personal story with one character aside from my main.

    I’d like to get into healbrand and condi renegade first. Have to gear them up though.

  • Waiting until EoD comes out in 2022.

    Oh no no no! You'll have WvW alliances before you get the Armoury (insert el risitas laughing image here).

    My goal is to not play the game until Anet actually does some big changes to the game, rework all weapons and skills, really push hard to remove bots and cheaters, punish them hard and openly so we know its happening. Deliver content the players want and not what will make them a quick buck (just look at all the 'important' updates we got that focused on money, than encouraging players to play the game.

    lest us never forget the original trailer for the game. If anything, it shows you the detachment of knowing what players actually want:

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭✭

    2020 made 2 full sets of legendary armor and have the main components for my third. Crafted a legendary backpack, both trinkets, both rings, and amulet.

    2021 goals... want to be able to use those items from the armory in wvw with my new alliance.

    I know goals are meant to be achievable. Mine may be set a little to high.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    I honestly still can not work out what this trailer was for, or what it was even meant to mean.
    Spray paint a wall with 'Blue paint' but red comes out, 'our time is now' time for what?

    Step on some fire with your bare feet, swim in a sunken earth cruise ship and emerge on the other side as a norn with tatts? Like they had an entire game to make the trailer from but they used unrelated footage, with very little connection to the game.

    I mean they may prove us wrong down the line by giving us Blue red spray paint to use ingame.

    Finishing my second set of legendary armor. Starting the third.

    Pls just permaban me by now so I can stop going back here

    Goals in GW2? Nothing till EOD. If it is not this year then nothing.

  • firedragon.8953firedragon.8953 Member ✭✭✭

    In 2020 I came back after 7 years, created a new character (I couldn't remember anything to continue my original) and played all the way up to Ice Brood Saga. In 2021 I plan to finish Ice Brood Saga before EoD so I am all caught up with the story and can explore the new world with everyone else. Also get the last mount, the Skyscale.

    I am going to hazard a guess that it was to represent how Guild Wars 2 broke free from the conventions of mmorpg competitors at the time, which people felt stuck in - paying subscription fees, and frozen in place with endless leveling and gear grind. Guild Wars 2 was, at the time, supposed to be different - an adventure where your decisions mattered; that your character really could be a piece of you stepping in to that epic story.
    I am guessing this based on what I knew before launch; from the videos and interviews of the developers.
    Their video commercials were always kind of missing the mark. Essentially they were attempting to encompass the scope of their intentions for this game but that is not really good marketing. What worked was the interviews, screenshots from development, and previews during game cons: the game had a lot of potential and merit even before beta and when any article showed that, it got people interested. Their artistic and overly symbolic video commercials not so much.

    A very interesting thread. The OP got me thinking and with the help of GW2efficiency, I pieced together my highlights for 2020:

    • 9 legendary weapons (7 for keeps and 2 for sale)
    • WvW legendary medium armour (to complete the WvW set)
    • PvP legendary back item and amulet (my first real entry into GW2 pvp)
    • WvW legendary ring
    • another go at PvE raids, this time much more sustained (started in Jan, still going strong)

    2021 plans:

    • 3 legendary items (rifle, longbow and PvE raid ring) to complete 1 of each weapon type and all trinkets for the coming legendary armoury. Hope it works as we all hope/believe/wish. I also hope that this inspires me to "progress horizontally" and learn classes I rarely play
    • Legendary Runes + Sigils are on hold. Maybe the armoury will make them useful/worthwhile, but for now I do not see the value
    • End of Dragons and LWS5, of course. I hope EoD will be more engaging than PoF, but it looks like LWS5 will be a slog
    • other plans remain to be determined (32 slot bags, PvE raid legendary light armour, another agony + stat infusion set from fractals, accumuating enough Gaeting Crystals to buy the Dhuum armour set + chair + staff ...)
  • Orack.9756Orack.9756 Member ✭✭

    Finish my explo on my Tempest and playing only him now. Wasted to much time choosing a main class.
    Starting S5 story and waiting patiently while having fun with friend for new chapter release.

    There isn't any game that will look good in 2021 for mmorpg so I'm sur to keep playing gw2 who is the most fun to me on the market.
    2022 maybe if Pantheon : Rise of the fallen release (but probably not since they're again in pre-alpha), then I'll go cuz it seem to have all I ever wanted in a mmorpg.

    I think right now the only news we can hope for is that they found out who is in charge of Anet and then maybe they can tell us if anyone still works for the company to even make EOD lol.

    All my toons of the various 9 classes are fully ascended geared;

    To achieve Fractal Savant;
    Get to play the next expansion;

  • Ogwom.7940Ogwom.7940 Member ✭✭✭

    Last year in the summer and the fall, I crafted Binding of Ipos, Claw of the Kahn Ur, Howler, Pharus and the Warbringer (my 3rd legendary backpack lol).
    I also bought the visage of the Khan Ur and bought 2 different exclusive mount skins with all the gold I made.

    I am not sure what to do now honestly, I am thinking to craft Astralaria but I already have Frostfang.
    I don’t have a legendary mace, so I might go for the Moot or Astralaria this month.
    Other than that, I just plan to continue playing dungeons and exploring old maps in Ascalon and Shiverpeaks while having GW1 music playing in the background until EOD comes by haha.
    I might also begin to RP.

  • Fenom.9457Fenom.9457 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I honestly can't really remember what all I did throughout the year, but highlights were finally crafting vision and crossing 24K AP.

    Most of my goals for 2021 are carrying over from what I was too lazy to do in 2020. My current goal is to finish them before EoD though, not the end of the year

    Get Kraitkin (EoD will have more water than HoT or PoF, but even if it's still not much I just wanna have an underwater legy)

    Pass 25K or 26K AP (depends on when exactly EoD releases if I can get to 26)

    Unlocking a certain chunk of skins from the wardrobe unlockers that are cheap (15G or less) or something relatively easy to get (example: dungeon skins) so I can use the ones I have

    Once we learn about the new specs, craft a legendary for whatever new weapon ele (my main) is getting.

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

  • 2020 reminded that no matter how low I set my expectations, Anet still underdelivers. So 2021 I expect nothing for wvw and bots to continue to run wild in pvp.

    Hello alliances? ..... Beuller?

  • My goal for 2021 is to quit playing Guild Wars.
