[Suggestion] Mini-Expansion to bring in some GW2 revenue

I've read some other people's posts about bringing in money to ANet to support GW2. I had an idea. A mini-expansion that doesn't add story content but rather brings in requested Quality of Life changes and other luxury items in as a single purchase.

Here are some suggestions:

• Old Lion's Arch as a mists lounge.

• A player housing map that can be upgraded both with home instance upgrades and guild style upgrades. I'd like to see the map be the size of a Living World map, have wild areas as a private preserve that can be farmed once a day, be on the water with some verticality w/updrafts. I think either an old dwarven structure or abandoned Inquest base would be a good basis for the style.

• Year round access to the map that the Festival of the Four Winds is on. It could be expanded east and west to allow access to Mount Maelstrom and the Desert Highlands. During off-festival time it could just be a normal map with Zephyrites living on it with occasional events.

• A player library; both as presence in the housing map and as a GUI.

• Build and armor template system.

• Access to Claw Island as an expanded map to include nearby islands w/basic events.

• Expanded Eye of the North map if not planned for a living world episode.

• Horse mount for those who have requested it (not me).

• Capes. (yes, I want this one) Outside of that I'd like to see an added functions as a general patch to hide stowed weapons to avoid clipping.

• Access to all armor skins no matter the profession class giving the ability to cross match skins from different armor weights. This would be a huge draw for the mini-exp because of the fashion it would allow.

• Hair styles storage for old hair styles. They would still require a kit but once you create a new style to a list so you can switch back and forth.

Feel free to add suggestions to this idea.

  • This sounds more like a flimsy veiled attempt to get many of the things that have been asked for before and shot down by the community. The only thing you are missing there is fishing, LOL!

  • You want us to pay for quality of life? Are you kidding?

    There is nothing flimsy or veiled about this suggestion. This is a blatant suggestion to give us items the community has been asking for in exchange for ANet making some much needed funds to support the game. Only a vocal few have "shot them down" but a large part of the community has been asking for them over and over and over.

    Yes, fishing would be a good addition too.

    So $20 USD for a mount skin is ok but something like $30 USD for good QoL items isn't?

    I think what you really mean is:

    "Only a vocal few have "been asking for them over and over and over" but a large part of the community "has shot them down".

    So basically you think we should withhold any helpful suggestions that might allow ANet to make money to support the game so the game can die as slow agonizing death.

    2 things:

    no, it's just that your suggestion is just bad

    gw2 isn't dying because anet doesn't make enough money

    You want to pump up some interest and bring in some revenue? Rerelease Scarlet Briar , marionette and all, the whole season one. You have any idea how many players never got to see that? How many that did want to relive it? I would pay to see that.

    I don’t pay for something what should be in game since 7 years

    Funny how it was a small part of the community that wanted mounts and they kept getting shot down by "the community" but ANet who controls the game added mounts. To be honest I didn't care for the idea of mounts but I enjoy them as much as the people who kept asking for them. We can put suggestions out there. It's not really up to the community to like or dislike the suggestions but rather for ANet to decide if they have worth and will add value to their product.

    A QoL package that gives something for everyone would be a good morale boost for the players and bring in some money to support the game.

    Thats the topic itself, fishing for karma

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    You just made a list of random QOL ideas and suggested players pay for it. I disagree, these should be in the base game. The base game should be complete, and each expansion should add another complete story. This is the case right now and it should remain like that.

  • Build templates
    Elite specialisations
    New mastery path
    Recipes for ascended items with limited stat swap
    Offered as a bundle or available as single items in the gem store.

    Sort of like an eye of the north vs a full xpac which would be something like a GW2 Nightfall. I like the idea.

    Do you want a balanced GW2? Then you are obliged to unironically agree with this suggestion!
