What ONE thing could the game have that would satisfy you?

What one thing could be added, removed, or changed in the game that would make you happy? It wouldn't fix everything in the game, but it would satisfy you personally for a long time.

It can't be something too broad like: "For PvP to be balanced!"

But it can be something like: "Guild Capes" or "Braham killed off" or "A certain class or weapon being more viable in PvP".


The ONE thing that would satisfy me is to finally have an Elemental/Arcane Longbow on Ele!

    Wow. Lots of good suggestions already. I’d love a dragon mount.

    The only thing I’m pretty impatient for and consistently disappointed about are guild updates and decorations.

    Getting more functionality for guild halls and a steady stream of decorations would be great for me. The rest I can usually be pretty patient for.

    But decorating is kind of my fashion wars equivalent of fashion wars end game. And the scribe system is still a bit of a mess too. :p

    An outfit combination using old pieces from the old mix-n-match outfit system (which I've posted before) and the idle animations returned via a system of being able to buy animations like they are mini pets, and then assign one or more to be 'active', triggered randomly as you are standing around. But I won't see that in my lifetime. And that's okay. It's been a great ride. :3

    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.

  • more focused professions that don't feel like a hodgepodge of half-baked ideas. Oh, and ritualist. Probably just ritualist.

  • If I got just one thing, it would be a return to a 1-2x/month update cadence, including one-time events. I liked the vibrancy of short-term content, the urgency at which people approached the game, and the community of cooperation. I liked having new things to do and I actually liked that some things in the game disappeared.

    Of course, some of the things I liked are the reasons this will never happen again for GW2, never mind that ANet doesn't have the staff to pull it off. (And, to be fair, sometimes the time limits brought out the worst of people, rather than the best.)

    This is gonna sound sad, my list is very long but if it was just going to be one thing, I couldn't pick anything else. More skimpy gear. #humanfemalemeta

    Challenging and rewarding open-world PVE.

    • Guys hired in order to monitorate spvp/wvw.
    • Permaban for hackers/wintrader/goldbuyers/Sellers. No second chances since they deliberately decided to ruin the game and take advantage of it.

    A container or preferably something in the hero panel for things like potions, books, keys (the ones we have left added to the wallet), black lion items like revive orbs (which I actually think will increase the number of them people buy with gems since they will always be available to every character without taking up inventory), etc.

    A way to exclude unlocked items on the tp as well as to see if we are already buying an item on the tp.

    And something that allows me to set aside money for different things I am working on. Like say I make 20 gold a day. I want to be able to set aside 4 gold for minis, 5 gold for mats, save 3-4 gold, etc. Something like that.

  • I'd like to see some Black Lion Gear for WvW to extend the time that a siege equipment remains without needing to be refreshed. Say from 60 minutes to 120 minutes or even longer.

    There are many things I would like to have, and it is difficult to chose one only. Most of what I miss can be dispatched into two categories: That what I miss from GW1 (build template, capes, menagerie, henchies, heroes, GH for everybody.....) and the peanuts things bothering me on a daily basis in GW2 (plant/tree leaves obstructed view, ranger pets that cannot be really turned off, .....).

    Though, one thing comes to my mind because it is a very recent one, and that's the one I chose now: The new LS episode and its area have several instances and events with "swirling" visual effects, causing me motion sickness pretty rapidly.
    I do hope it will not become a standard, and I do hope for that effect to be minimized, or even removed. There is especially one event in the area (sorry, cannot recall name), that I can simply not do because it gets me sick within seconds and I cannot cope. I know I am probably part of a minority, but it is really annoying. :s

    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...

    I loved Season One, as well. I would vote for the same thing.
    And, as something that might actually see the light of day, some day: the ability to change your status before entering the game.

    A $15/month sub fee, but that's probably "too broad".

    In fact, there isn't any one thing that is not broad that could be changed in that respect. Games of this size and complexity rarely have just one simple thing that could be changed to satisfy any given player for a long period of time.

    Are there small things that I would love to see changed? Sure, but they are "quality of life" things and not necessarily things that would totally make the game for me.

    Top three small things for me would be:

    1. Default all crafting categories to minimized when opening the crafting window.
    2. Add "sigils" to harvesting tools so any given harvesting tool can harvest unbound magic, sprockets, etc based on the sigil you put in them.
    3. Add a sensible* gobbler to eat essence of luck that is not time gated or quantity gated.

    Oh, and in 4th place: make the next legendary use like 75 stacks of silver ore.

    _*I shouldn't have to get overly verbose on this, but when I say "sensible" I mean an item that A) eats *all* essence types, B) returns something of value that is reasonable. feeding it a stack of 250 exotic essence of luck and getting back a bag of barbed thorns worth about 20copper is *not* sensible. A Mystic Coin would be more appropriate.

    Soul-binding needs to be allowed to die gracefully. It has expired. It is long past it's time to become a footnote in the history of gaming.

    • adding mounts that respect the lore (no dragons & other fan service mounts)
    • removing wings, bunny ears & other breaking immersion things
    • adding more things to do at PoF maps
    • permiting each classes to have a clear role for raid, pvp etc, not defined by the meta boys but by Anet, by redesigning core specs so each of them has a clear strong point & maybe making a core spec a "vanilla" elite spec
  • Edds.7681Edds.7681 Member ✭✭

    tank,healer and dps roles but thats more of a selfish dream

    add in bad luck loot protection. say for like invisible shoes has a slight higher chance each time you kill a treasure mushroom

  • Frostfang.5109Frostfang.5109 Member ✭✭✭
    • Dragon Mount.
    • More character customisation to all races (LOVE the addition of New horns for charr!).
    • More Tribal looking armours.
    • Bow or Longbow for Mesmer.
  • zealex.9410zealex.9410 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Sub fee :p And a power dps mesmer elite spec with a spear.

    ~ More hairstyles!
    ~ More Beards!
    ~ Balance patch for Ranger Pets, making all of them viable so we can fit pets to our fashion theme, not the meta!
    ~ More guild halls with less ruins/preset decorations!
    ~ More guild hall decorations!
    ~ More armour skins!
    ~ A reason to garrison and defend wvw forts!

    ... I suspect any one of these requests would bankrupt Anet within the year if listened to, but I can dream!

    • Weapon dyes
    • More body type options for all races
    • A journal that keeps all collection items or books (similar to collections tab)
    • The return of Zephyrite Sanctum
    • The return of LS Season 1 in the story journal format.
    • Reasonably priced mount skins that aren't moving particle effect storms
  • Weapon/Armor/Mount skin drops tied to certain events/fractals/dungeons/raids. PvE would feel (more)rewarding that way, perhaps.

    Weapon Dyes.

    Actually decent hairstyles.

    More than anything, a focus on the core game, primarily in two components:

    BALANCE
    -Really taking a close look at all core skills, traits, and weapons. And don't forget core ranger pets!
    -Filling in missing heals or elites in particular skill categories for all classes.

    VISUALS
    -Updating outdated animations that feel a bit like relics of the past. There aren't a ton of them, but they exist and it would be nice if visually, they matched the visual level that the newer stuff is at. I am not asking for more over-the-top visuals, just polished to the standard that they currently hold.
    -Updating old models. I know updating old armors and weapons is probably a pipe dream, but at least stuff like most of the core ranger pets could use some serious love. I love some of my pets, but godkitten they could use a makeover.

    It seems like ArenaNet has a philosophy that the "new" is always of utmost importance, but I would really like for the core game to be better refined and get some real quality TLC. It seems like they are moving in that direction, so I can only hope that they continue to go down that path.

    Also....honorable mention goes to:

    REALISTIC WEAPONS AND ARMORS
    Yes, I am a fashion wars snob. I want my characters to look good, and to at least have them feel semi-immersive in the world they exist in. There are too many weapons and armors in this game that cater to the tasteless and the edgelords, and then there are some ridiculously over-the-top pieces in the game that I wonder how the kitten they were ever given the approval to set foot in this game because of how hideous they are. I want beautiful, refined armors and weapons that still maintain a level of cultural and thematic appropriateness. ANet has a team of absolutely incredibly gifted artists--artists whose talent I deeply envy--and I want this to be better reflected in their armor and weapons. Those stunning pieces exist, but there should be MOAR to appease the fashion wars kitten out there like myself.

  • Removal of the ability to use attacks and abilities that grant any form of portal, leap, jump etc etc in jump puzzles followed by improved jump puzzle rewards (nothing crazy like guaranteed ascended items, just make it better).
    More jump puzzles.
    More 'interesting' (subjective) areas to explore (Done map comp on the PoF maps but the maps seem so bland and boring I can't bear to go back there and look around, it's mostly just large open sand).

  • REPLACE THE CHARR WITH A BETTER RACE. Dear god I don't know why ANet made those horrible looking things. Really just look at the Asura and Sylvari and ANet has already proven that you can make non human races that look great. I just really dislike seeing those half dog/rodent looking things running around, sometimes I mistake them as an NPC attacking me (kappa). And have you had a good long look at their... necks... Looks disfigured sometimes to me. Just very unpleasant to look at.

    So yeah that would be what would make me happy personally.
