    Gw2 s next 2 big development should be
    1 - WvW Alliance System
    2- A new race ( its about time , game is big people need this )
    Also show some love to dungeons , searching for party from different maps (like pvp queue) would be quite usefull , if u dont want to give more dungeon content , just make it more viable so people cannot be able to say that its dead

    Dungeons hell yeah - just up the rewards to be more than now and still less than fractals (dungs are easier after all) and hit that diminishing returns button hard. Actually you could implement the same daily chest and valuable junk item systems, just add junk items that are worth less or drop less frequently. A typical T4 + recs run nets around 12-20g in my experience. That's six "paths". So by that logic, if we look at the worst case scenario, one "path" nets 2g. Well, how about awarding the player with junk worth around 1g per path. That's 3g per cleared dungeon. Right now, Arah is the only one with that sort of rewards - I think all of them should be around that number, and Arah a bit higher. Or something, I'm no economist, let alone a virtual one, but dungeons just seem so unrewarding other than the joy of completing them, that is.

    Also - new race? One word: Largos. Though I think that might be a touch too kitten for Tyria to handle.

    Dungeons can net you greater rewards by using currency to buy armour or weapons of the dungeon and salvage them for exotic inscriptions which is why CoF, CoE and Arah are the better ones to do because of Zerk inscriptions. A few dungeons even sell utility potions that can be worth selling.

    Our GW2 wiki is FANTASTIC, but, consider this . . .

    If the wiki is under the umbrella of Arena, I'd like to see some effort regarding a consistent presentation of time listings. Many are fine, but some attempt to present local time and some show UTC notation. The same is true on some of the fan sites.

    This could be done with a common time presentation function similar to how the links for spidy, bltc, etc are shown in many places and yet coded in a single location.

    With the movement(coming very soon) of some EU states/countries and US states electing to permanently choose DST (BST) or Standard time, I think the time has come for a common module and time presentation throughout the site. UTC-5 is EST, but EDT is currently UTC-4, perhaps this is viewed as pedantic, but I think the site should be built to reduce confusion for the masses. I believe good programming and design reduce confusion along with calls to the help desk ( aka map chat ).

    No, thank you. I like being able to mail gold and items from my alt accounts to my main account just fine. No need for complicated or shady multi launching, or needing two computers like GW1.

    You can safely give gold & items to alt accounts through a personal guild bank - in fact, it's FAR easier to do that than all the mailing! It only costs 1gp to create a guild (with just you and your alt accounts). Besides, if you have your mail settings set to "Accept mail from everyone" you could STILL do that! Even if you could only accept mail from your friends, you could STILL work it out by adding all your alt accounts as friends.

    My most wanted QoL : let us unlock minis in the wardrobe without consuming them and destroying the item.

    That way we can both unlock the skin AND mystic forge them. I have lost count how many times i gave up on a mini i like that is hard to get just to either upgrade it or mf it (pvp llamas, new fog raven etc).

    Necro mains either are masochists or become masochists after a balance patch.

  • I don't normally post on forums because truthfully I've never gotten responses in a way that seemed to come to any many conclusions. But are there going to be any UI option additions to the game where I can choose to hide specific UI tools, such as the map, quest/nearby event trackers, the chat box, etc? I'm a minimalist type of person, so I personally like having as little stuff on my screen as I possibly can.

    I'm just tired of logging in. And seeing a list the entire right side of my screen, that I manually have to "click" to minimize, but not remove it. The game is really pretty, but its pretty ugly with all that text all over it.

    Make 'LFG' show Elite Specialization Icons, if spec if active. Instead of always original proffesion icons.
    Also, i am begging you, exclude ANY previous day Daily fractals from next day set. Not fun to do same fractal everyday. There are more than enough of them to fully randomize the set without repeats.

  • Let us stack harvesting items. I don't need 2 slots for only 2 Ascended extractors.

    Can we, for once and for all, change the Charr's rifle walk and run animations so that they are actually holding it two handed.






    Look at those bottom two images. They look so much more ali/war-ie and ferocious than the current anims, because rather than just running with the rifle like it's a stick, he has it up and in the "ready position", much more professional.

    Last point - Can we have it so when you are free aiming at a target and standing still the rifle actually points to where the camera is facing. At the moment, if you are using free aim, the rifle only points to where the camera is facing when you are moving. When standing still the character points the rifle level, and the bullet just veers off as soon as it exits the barrel.

    You stand to benefit more from making friends than you do making enemies.

  • I have no clue if this have been posted before... BUT.. i would like a Sigil/Rune Bag/bank/storage option...

    -Lets you store 10 of EACH single rune/sigil
    -Black Lion Buy option: +5/+10 Sigils each 500gems, max 50/100 storage.
    -Larger storage stack for green? Green/Yellow/Orange 15/10/5
    -(Black Lion Buy Option: Green/Yellow/Orange ; +15/+10/+5) 500gems
    -I think the option itself even could bee a Gem Shop option.... people WILL buy this.. even if it costs 2.000Gems....

  • I'd like to see some sort of container in which i can store gear. The inventories of my chars all get crowded too easily by gear for different builds. Let alone my guard having a set of gear for power, condition and tankheal. This covers way too much of my inventory and bank space. Please add a container to gemstore in which i can store such gear.
    It's quite disappointing for me to stop after 2 chests because my inventory is full. I'm someone that doesn't want to be stuck to one build forever and as said keeping gear for different builds for all characters consumes really alot of space in inventories and bank. But with such a container i could reduce that occupied space to one, that container.
    The idea is that you can store one set of armor, up to 4 weapons and a set of trinkets per container. This also would help me keeping my inventory more sorted.
    I know you have such containers, lvl80 boost puts all your current gear in a container when you use it. Please add this sort of container to gemstore and free me up some space in bank and inventories.

    Ever heard of legendaries? Also I dont think youd have problems with space if you had 17 bank slots and 10 bag slots which are already buyable in the gemstore

  • Make items in Guild Bank able to combine to stack within Guild Bank (also able to combine from Inventory to Guild Bank). Because it's inefficient having to remove items from Guild Bank just to combine an item to a stack in your own inventory and then put it back into Guild Bank. It's also an eyesore in the Guild Bank records, seeing multiple actions done just to achieve one thing.

  • [Suggestion]
    Would it be possible to make Mystic Chromatic Ooze as part of the Novelty Collections?

    Anet said at some point that this was not enabled on guild banks because of the possibility of other users in the guild accessing the same content at the same time. There is something with the auto stack that could get messed up.

    It would be really nice if they could enable this for personal guild banks but it is possible that just being able to add other users to the guild would prevent it.

    Currently attempting all Legendary Journey collections at once.

    You can skip the confirmation window by double clicking the waypoints.

    I know you can skip double clicking, but there is no way to get around map view if you click on a waypoint in chat. Or am I wrong? Shift+Click function would provide another route that is faster for those that have the waypoint unlocked.

  • Some kind of solution to easily differentiate between yellow enemy nameplates and yellow object nameplates, as well as between NPC green nameplates and player character green nameplates.
    It would really help to be able to know at a glance that what you're seeing is a resource node or passive enemy.

    Solution 1
    An option to separate "Show All Enemy Names" check box into following two options:
    "Show Only Hostile (Red) Enemy Names"
    "Show Only Non-Hostile (Yellow) Enemy Names"

    This would allow using the option to show only Red nameplates for hostile enemies while having Yellow nameplates for objects.

    Solution 2
    Have custom option to select from a few basic colors for different nameplate categories (passive enemy, hostile enemy, player, NPC, object, resource node), like green, yellow, red, blue, white, orange, gray, pink etc.

    Where this would come in handy is to easily identify at a glance resource nodes/objects from a large group of passive enemies, or to easily separate players from NPC's in battles in case let's say you might want to specifically find where is an NPC positioned in a fight.

    Colorblind players perhaps might even find this quite useful, mainly having option to manually select colors.

  • In the spirit of how the candy corn node in your home instance can be upgraded to King-sized, how about some quests to upgrade the HOT airship/exalted chests in the home instance into their larger counterparts; i.e. Airship cargo -> Large airship cargo; Exalted chest -> Great Exhalted chest.
    It would be something for completionists and node-collectors to enjoy and yet another way to bring people back to HOT maps.

  • As I sit here after making 800 pieces of guild siege, I really feel there should be a better way to queue them into the assembly other then 10 at a time. We need to just be able to drop em all in and let them run.

    I recently made a post asking players what attribute combinations players would like to see added. I was surprised to see that there are a lot of different combinations players want that aren’t in the game. So it got me thinking of some kind of reforge system that let’s players customize attribute combinations, without ruining current combinations or future additions.

    For a fee (whether gold, materials, or other non-gem currencies), a player can change attributes of a gear piece to any desired attributes, like turn power, precision, and ferocity to condition damage, precision, and expertise with a small hit in overall stats. For example, a customized ascended piece may have stats that are between ascended and exotic. This way, obtaining existing combinations the normal way is still the right way to go and future combination additions won’t be pointless. However, it let’s players customize their gears into stats that are otherwise unobtainable.

    ^^

  • Hi all, not sure if this has been mentioned before (I didn't want to sift thru 13 pages of comments, sorry, TLDR) I was thinking if it would be possible to have a portal scroll to store the lounge passes in? Like Lava Lounge, Divinity's Reach, Lily of the Elon, etc. :) I know there are some people who may disagree with me, as some may like having passes on different characters and such. But I thought I'd just throw it out there as an option. :)

  • keenedge.9675keenedge.9675 Member ✭✭✭

    Neverwinter Online recently added . . . BUILD TEMPLATES. 2 Slots free, more for premium game currency.

    Moral Statute Machine: John Spartan, you are fined five credits for repeated violations of the verbal morality statute.

  • Could you please make ascended armor and weapon boxes of the same type stack?

  • Split the existing "General" achievement category into General (for the actual general stuff, "Slayer", "Community", etc) and Central Tyria (In line with the PoF and HoT master categories), and move some of the "Hero" achievements into the Story Journal category into "Personal Story Act 1/2/3" sections.

    Other things could be tidied, but that one screams at me every time I look at the achievement panel.

    New filter on the wallet "Favorite", and the ability to flag a currency as a favorite.

    EDIT: The ability to show the first X favorites as a side panel like the watch list of achievements.

  • The ability to slide the four corners to the other side of the screen instead of just up/down

  • Deposit & compact option in options screen, possibly related to a mastery, similar to autoloot options.

  • Loki.4871Loki.4871 Member ✭✭

    When you select a party/squad member, can we have their dot circled on the minimap like in GW1 please? I'm already very fed up trying to find an injured party member among the blobs in world events.

  • Maybe next halloween give us a little warning when it's about to end; e.g. "The Mad Realm will throw you out in 30 minutes" or something. An ending cinematic would be great too but at least some heads-up would be nice.

    I would like to suggest Currency Conversion. From one Currency to another. It could have a cost of 2 to 1 or 3 to 1. I have a huge stack of old currency (see Orrian Pearls) that I am unlikely to ever use and would happily exchange them for another currency (see Mistonium or whatever the newest currency is at the time). Probably the easiest way to do it is create another currency (oh YAY) that any of the other currency's can be converted to and then use that to purchase whatever you need at the time.

  • I apologize if this is a re-post or has already been requested.

    I have a couple suggestions for QoL for some of us veterans (and everyone else) and given this post.

    First request / suggestion is to work Essence of luck into use as a crafting material or something, I was going to suggest for crafting runes and sigil's but not now ;) or maybe as a conversion to laurels or something I don't know really just throwing ideas out there. @ max MF level not much else I can do with them now.

    Second and most importantly, Endless upgrade Extractor and upgrade extractors!!! PLEASE add a right click option to the extractors that works like the right click for salvage kits and extracts all Runes, Sigil's and Infusions form all gear in bags that do not hide gear!? Please can we have this!? And who knows you probably already added it!?

    Thanks so much for all the work that has made Guild Wars 2 such a great game!
    Thanks for considering these ideas.

    2 other ones:

    1. Option to turn on/off party attack/buff/etc. visual effects.

    2. Replace the enemy red wavy AoE circle2 with something easier too see. Not sure if it's just me but they are easy to miss in a flashy fight (#1 for example) or on any floor with a transparency effect.

    1. Gleam of Sentience - take off the confirmation dialogs. If I double-click a vendor item, I mean to buy it. And 25 dragonite is a trivial loss if you make a mistake.

    2. Would be nice if a certain number of the same single-use tonic could be forged/crafted into something useful, like an endless version of the tonic or a vial of karma or something.

    3. All gobblers should be consistent and be able to draw materials from the bank/material bank. Gleam of Sentience does, Princess/Mawdrey don't - forcing players to withdraw these materials into inventory to use the gobblers, which is a tedious and pointless step.

    4. Does the materials dude in the Guild Hall (the one you give materials to in order to further guild hall construction projects) allow you to give him stuff from your bank/materials bank yet? That was always a big peeve of mine. You had to see what he needed, run over to the scribe station, withdraw the stuff into inventory, run back to the dude, donate materials, rinse, repeat. It puts me off donating anything.

  • Bank Tab Stuff

    I'm sure this has been mentioned somewhere, but it would be amazing if we could drag and re-order bank tabs, in addition to labeling them.
    Also, a sweet feature would be to be able to focus-on/highlight a single bank tab, so that when you double-click an item in your bag on the left-panel, the item would try to store into a slot within the focused bank tab, rather than just trying to store into the first available slot of the entire bank as a whole.
    Finally, the ability to resize and maximize the bank window!

    Awesome game folks @ anet, keep up the great work!

  • phs.6089phs.6089 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Highlight and mark dailies, make it not so confusing for new players.
    I'm talking of PVE dailies that new players can go do.
    1. JP, Minidungeons have a way to see where there are about on map but it not handy as it gets back to your current position. Solution would be place a 'star' personal waypoint on map after clicking on daily pointer.
    2. Gather things in Ascalon, Kryta etc. well new plaer hardly knows where and what are those. Solution add pointer juts like for JPs that highlights the region on map.

    I've been thinking for a while that a change to dailies would be good. Just to make the longer time players (like me ;d) more engaged and excited. Unfortunately I don't have any concrete idea but I'm sure you are creative enough to come up with something ;)
    Maybe a random (like a lottery) special task (that you can ignore if you want) once a day or a week that would give a player some special award or a chance to make a bit more gold? I think some more expensive food item/metabolic-utility primer/black lion chest key wink wink would be cool ;)

    Oh, and thank you for fixing the problem with runes and sigils! Not sure if it was a response to my suggestion just a few days ago, but it helps (it's not the solution that I thought of but it IS a response and I hope it will work smooth)

    • Make a thing similar to the Novelties skill bar for portal scrolls (far too much space is wasted by them)
    • The Home Portal Stone should allow you to pick which Home Instance to go to (so Rata Sum, Black Citadel, etc)
      (bunch of mini-quests to unlock the non-cultural ones or gold/gem purchase, this should be account wide)

    • The Home Portal Stone should be usable to revive yourself (like Waypoints do, waking up in a bed in the Home Instance would be a nice touch)

    • A merchant for the Home Instance that sells keys to the various chests that you can obtain for the Home Instance
    • A Banker and Merchant NPC for the Home Instance
