Guild Wars 2 UI disappearing option.

We all love how Guild Wars 2 looks. But the UI, which already is very minimal, can get in the way of this beauty. Now you can toggle the UI with a button, BUT that would mean if something happens, you have to press that button again. And some elements of the UI you should always be able to see (like the Map).
So maybe it is possible that the UI vanishes (except for the map maybe) when out of combat. That way, more of Guild Wars 2 can be seen and enjoyed, but when the action begins, everything you need pops right back up. I suggest having the option to toggle the map (and leave a compass style navigation) would also be nice.
Thoughts anyone? (Devs, your opinion would GREATLY be appreciated).

    CTRL + SHIFT + H removes it. ( and brings it back )

  • The Devs may be more likely to peruse the QoL Sticky above.

    Good luck.

    I'd love this. Elder Scrolls Online has the option to hide elements of the UI when they're not in use. For example when you're not in combat or targeting an enemy your skill bar disappears, and then it comes back automatically when you need it.

    It's a really nice option because it means when you're just exploring you get to see more of the world but if you want to keep anything up you can just set it to not disappear, and other stuff comes back as needed.

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."
