[Suggestion] Expand Portal Scroll Book

The portal scroll book was a nice addition to the game and a good example of a QoL item that required the player to work towards an item but then granted quicker access to areas for their alts. To me there would be value to continue that trend with the new zones. It creates a demand for those currencies and allows players to work toward new collections. This setup would also lend itself to future achievements and give player even more reasons to visit zones. If possible it would also be nice to back work older zones to create portal scrolls for those zones with unique currencies as well like Silverwastes and Drytop. Being able to link in Gem Store items like the Royal Terrace Pass, Airship Captain Pass and such would also be an added benefit above that. Appreciate the read.

    I think for the older zones they could incorporate "current events" into getting the portal scrolls for those zones. Every zone could have their own necessary tasks/quests/currencies to obtain the portal for that zone.

    Doing this would also draw people, at least for a time, into older zones.

  • +1 Absolutely - the existing tab technology on various vendor windows could be used to great effect here. One tab for LS3 maps, one for LS4, one for Passes, etc.

    Please add the other portal scrolls as well, such as Home, Div Reach, etc. Might as well take it all the way!

    We have scrolls for the major cities already, including Lion's Arch and Ebonhawke, but you have to make those. The home portal device is for sell in the gemstore too.
    If they create too many scrolls for all areas, the asurans will get mad the WP fees are going down....

    New mount skins?! Anet take my money!

    Good examples, allow players to roll these in.

    It would be nice to have some sort of portal scroll to the HoT area(s). Now that some guild halls will be moving to the Crystal Desert, many of us will be losing our HoT shortcut.

    I like a blend of gem store and in game access scrolls. Gem store focuses on convenience items and the in game items should be something for the players to earn via game play. The convenience items should never be the only way to access something.

    You have just got my first "thumbs up" great suggestion, I would love to expand my book :) The idea to add passes would be great, I have a few temporary ones i would like to add too.

    you can make portal scrolls to Lions Arch and other main towns I think, so it would be cool to add these :+1:
