edited December 8, 2017 in Guild Wars 2 Discussion

In the spirit of the holidays, the GW 2 Genie is feeling quite generous and is willing to grant another set of changes to GW 2 that would otherwise be impossible or unlikely to ever happen in GW 2. You can only pick one.

What do you choose?


*GW 2 Genie's previous set of changes offered:
https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/19675/which-of-these-impossible-changes-to-the-game-would-you-pick/p1

*****Meant to say "ALL PvE content" for this one:
Legendary armor is no longer only available through raids but through PvE content as well

    This is a tough one, because I also like the "no Transmutation charges," better medium armor options, and a dead Braham.

    Even thou i was there for it season 1 is my choice. Would help people get to know and better understand how/why we have them as companions. Because for most new players/returnee's they are just a random addition with no build up towards them being our companions. Would also love to be able to do some of the old bosses/events since they were fun as hell (and maybe get achivs i missed).

    I was saying in an other thread, they should just bring the PvP system over to PvE, make it so you can just stat-swap using amulets rather than armor, and then just let people choose whichever skins they like out of the wardrobe at will.

    Question. Would I be able to get my Black Widow Spider Pet in GW2 if I played this version? I never played GW1 but I want the Black Widow Pet.

    The Dervish, Paragon, and other GW 1 Professions now playable in GW 2

    Ritualist? I want Ritualist.

    Bah-humbug. I would transmutate it anyway.

    I don't even care if I have to pay. I want to play Season 1.

    I actually like quite a few of these options, but the swapping looks for free would be awesome. My other picks would be medium armour gets something other than trenchcoats and Anet acquiring new servers. :D

    I voted for LWS1 but the "free" clause is something I don't agree with. I am absolutely fine with ANet charging for it, in fact I'd prefer them to charge for it cause that'd both give them more motivation to make it and set higher expectations from the playerbase than a free update would.

    Well they could charge the same with Seasons 2, 3 and 4, for those not there when they were released.

    The one where Arenanet upgrades their servers so there's no lag. I stream this game with "only" an entry-level gaming comp that can barely play the game as it is (I have to have all the graphics settings at the lowest). Upgrading the servers could really help.

  • Season 1 of Living World remastered and made playable for free

    I started playing shortly after the conclusion for LWS1 so most of my time spent with LWS2 involved constantly asking myself if I should know what was going on. The fact that I've still never been able to experience Scarlet's story outside of watching plot summary videos is a big disappointment.

    My choice is rooted in the fact that I was locked out of the game for a good 5 minutes because the server didn't want to connect, and nigh-daily disconnects at random times. :skull:

    Again you failed to provide the option for "None", there should always be the option to choose absolutely nothing.

    But you chose nothing by not selecting an option from the list. If there were an option, you would have chosen an option, even if that one was "nothing".

    Legendary armor is no longer only available through raids but through PvE content as well

    Its a toss up between getting legendary armor in PvE outside of raids and getting LS1 in a replayable variant... I would be ok with paying for the replayable LS1 since I realise it would be a lot of work to do outside of the current seasons and expansions.

    GW1 remastered makes no sense to me... it was/is a great game and I loved my time in that game... and I love my time in GW2, which is also a great game, even if quite different.

    Can't say I would not like old professions returning, but it's hardly anything I care much about.... but then I don't care about playing new professions, because it does not add anything to why I play (story, exploration).

    Would love some more not trenchcoat medium armor, I really really would... but I do have a look I really like so not as pressing for me... atm.

    What is it with people and wanting to kill off characters they don't like? I really don't get it.... I mean I get people may dislike certain characters... Braham certainly isn't on my most beloved characters list. But I don't get the need to kill those characters.

    A higher tier than ascended or legendary? No... nononono. Absolutely no.

    Even if we have to pay for it, I'd like living world season 1 to be re-playable. There are things in HOT that make no sense if you haven't played season 1 or 2 before and you have to out source in order to find out what happened in season 1.

  • Legendary armor is no longer only available through raids but through PvE content as well

    I so want legendary armor outside of raids! I know it's a difficult exclusive thing to get and it should be but I am more than willing to travel the world, doing endless and expensive collections if that's what it takes. I just can't raid, it's too stressful!

    The Dervish, Paragon, and other GW 1 Professions now playable in GW 2

    Tough choice. Almost went for option 1, but really, Guild Wars doesn't need better graphics, and there are no GW2 mechanics I'd want there, beyond the ability to jump. No jumping puzzles! No, no, none of that. Just to be able to hit the space bar as your character is walking along, and have them do a happy little jump. That's all I would add.

    But!

    If the GW2 Genie offered to grant renewed Guild Wars development, bringing new campaigns set in previously unknown regions where no dragon wing ever flapped and dancing for cows would result in assorted points and laughs from onlookers, I'd be all over that.
