[Suggestion] Account Augmentation for WvW

Rydelkow.4625Rydelkow.4625 Member ✭✭

Introduction

At the beginning I would like to say that this idea is taken from upgrades you can buy in Fractals of the Mists. I thought that adding this option would improve the feeling of progression in WvW. Hardcore players will appreciate the opportunity to enjoy better WVW benefits. So let's get started.

Account WvW Augmentation

Account WvW Augmentations are upgrades that can be purchased from Skirmish Supervisor that can be found in every World versus World map. These upgrades will affect all characters within the World versus World map. There are four tiers to each upgrade. Each upgrade stacks with the previous level.

WvW Empowerment

Permanently Increase WvW Experience and Reward Track gain by 5%.

  • Level 1 Cost: 1 Gold / 100 Memory of Battle / 100 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 2 Cost: 5 Gold / 200 Memory of Battle / 200 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 3 Cost: 10 Gold / 300 Memory of Battle / 300 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 4 Cost: 15 Gold / 400 Memory of Battle / 400 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket

Karmic Retribution

Permanently gain 25% chance for bonus karma from fallen foes. [Drip of Liquid Karma(150)]

  • Level 1 Cost: 1 Gold / 500 Badges of Honor / 100 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 2 Cost: 5 Gold / 1000 Badges of Honor / 200 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 3 Cost: 10 Gold / 1500 Badges of Honor / 300 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 4 Cost: 15 Gold / 2000 Badges of Honor / 400 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket

Tamer of guards

Permanently gain +3% [Damage to] and -3% [Damage taken from] Guards, Lords, and Supervisors. Gain 25% more WvW Experience for killing Guards, Lords, and Supervisors.

  • Level 1 Cost: 1 Gold / 1 Legendary Spike / 100 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 2 Cost: 5 Gold / 5 Legendary Spike / 200 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 3 Cost: 10 Gold / 10 Legendary Spike / 300 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 4 Cost: 15 Gold / 15 Legendary Spike / 400 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket

WvW Attunement

Permanently gain 1 extra pip bonus towards Skirmish reward track progress per tick. Completion of WvW Reward Track provides an additional reward in the form of 1 Box of WvW Supplies.

  • Level 1 Cost: 10 Gold / 1 Gift of Battle / 1000 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 2 Cost: 50 Gold / 5 Gift of Battle / 2000 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 3 Cost: 100 Gold / 10 Gift of Battle / 3000 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket
  • Level 4 Cost: 150 Gold / 15 Gift of Battle / 4000 WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket

Conclusions

The proposed costs and buffs are of course to be discussed. As for the idea itself, I consider it a development of progress in wvw. Buffs are not exaggerated and do not give the player an advantage over others, only increase the progress of the prizes. The cost of improvements must be high to reward players who spend most of their time in this game mode.

    This sounds very familiar. Have you posted this before? I am sure we already have that account augmentation idea somewhere on the forum (must search for it later).
    WvW Empowerment - sounds good, an additional 20% is great and the costs are reasonable (more on that later)
    Karmic Retribution - I would expand that on events in BL & EB, because things like dolly escorts would be made better this way.
    Tamer or Guards - Too strong. an additional +12%/-12% on top of infusions makes T3 camps easily solo'able and Lords can be killed by a single person in reasonable time (before defender arrive e.g.)
    WvW Attunement - +4 pips is quite a lot, considering what you get right now (without outnumbered)

    Veteran Players will probably insta-buy max level for WvW Empowerment and Karmic Retribution and perhaps two levels of the other two within a few days. You would create another divide between the dedicated WvW players and the more casual PvX players and newcomers. I don't think that would be a good idea, even if it just sounds like a "psychological divide". If you could roll out that idea somewhat time gated, it would be less impacting.

    WvW mastery points? There's plenty of achievements they could attach points to

    I don’t think players would be happy with your proposal when we have excessive amounts of World Ability Points.

    Pips seem ridiculous would be nice for us diamonds though 20 outnumbered pips here we go. Everything else sounds good though

  • maybe only unlockable after reach 10 k rank

    All but the guard one seems fine. As long as no rank requirement I am okay with this. Imo claim ticket requirements for last one could be lowered and GoF requirement upped a bit

    Ögonen omges av vita och svarta penseldrag som gör att de ser större ut än vad de egentligen är. Baksidan av lodjurets öron kantas av svart päls som slutar i den karaktäristiska tofsen högst upp på örat. Lodjurets svans är kortare än de flesta andra kattdjurs.

  • If you are comparing these to fractal augmentations these are WAY too cheap... The 4th level of fractal attunement costs 55k fractal relics this is in no way comparable to 4k skirmish tickets which is just a less than double what is needed for the legendary backpack.
