    Imagine if it was just 7 mini queen jennah's.

    Only if we can stick 4 mini Queen Jennahs into the mystic forge to combine them into one super-bot.

    more likely into a super-hot jennah

    Y1: Loyal title, mini jennah. (very jennah-rous)
    Y2: Veteran title, birthday blaster.
    Y3: Faithful title, birthday finisher, Selectable dye kit.
    Y4: Salwalt title, selectable dye kit, 5000 karma, 1 city backpack.
    Y5: Relentless title, selectable dye kit, 5000 karma, 1 city backpack, 2 luminous weapons, 1 2 week lounge pass, 1 Guarenteed Wardrobe unlock.
    Y6: Devoted title, selectable dye kit, 5000 karma, 1 city backpack, 2 luminous weapons, 1 set of luminous armour, 1 Guarenteed wardrobe unlock.
    Y7: ???

    So, If we look at the pattern, your guesses might not be that far off base.

    Y7: Steadfast
    Y8: Dedicated
    Y9: Committed
    Y10: Unwavering

    Sorry for the spoiler alert, but it's been available here for a while: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Title. Also, GW2 end-of-life at year 10 confirmed. :p

    Level-Booster and XP-Booster are 100% useless if you play for 7 Years. (also for 6,5,4,3 and 2)
    What 100% could be used are inventory or bank slots.

    For you maybe not everyone else.

    And a special 7th year anniversary icon next to our name.

    You likely get another new title.

    Yes, I know. Steadfast is the 7th year title. What i meant is instead of titles, give us an icon. So, 7th year one icon and one eveey year after that : D For a change.

    An infusion for the 7th birthday would be nice. 🤗

    you read my mind ~ I wish for a special account-bound infusion for 7th year too. Something really cool that represents that player has been here since the start flashy kind of item.

    Chose between character bound infinite bank / forge / merchant / BLC counter

    Would be awesome

  • Brother.1504Brother.1504 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Would a 7th birthday mount skin be too crazy an idea?

  • TBH the bday gifts are kinda nice already. The weapon skins look good, the armors look good(ish) and the dyes are always nice (getting shadow abyss and permafrost for free... hard to complain about that!). Not to mention the guaranteed wardrobe unlock.

    More would obviously be better, and each year they added something more to the gift, so who knows, maybe this year they put something new there - we will soon find out.

    So yeah, at least in this ANet has done a fine job of rewarding old-time players.

    And the exp scroll is more of a running joke right now I think, nobody needs it but it's been always there so why not (I myself have i think about 15 stacks of tomes, so...).

    Character wise it'll no doubt be:

    • Level 70 Experience Scroll
    • A selectable dye pack of some of the newest dye sets
    • 5 Teleports to Friend
    • 5 Celebration Boosters
    • 5,000 Karma

    Account bound it'll be:

    • New title
    • 4th City Backpack
    • 5th and 6th Luminous Weapons
    • 2nd Luminous Armor
    • 1 Guaranteed Wardrobe Unlock
    • Something new

    That something new is most likely to be one of the following given the previous unlocks (in order of likelihood):

    • Outfit
    • Choice of novelties (one option per category)
    • Gathering tool skins (one of three options)
    • Cosmetic aura effect (as infusion?)
    • Glider
    • Mount skins (one option per mount)
    • No something new after all (and something new won't show up until Year 9, when both backpieces and armor are completed)

    On a side note, ArenaNet has been doing a lot of "maintenance mode preparations" for up to 20 years with the festivals. Perhaps instead of making something new this year, they'll instead prep for new items from Year 9 to Year 20?

    An infusion of choice sounds nice for a 7 year birthday gift, but I think it should be account bound otherwise it would crash the market(I don't mind as the prices are ridiculous).

    I was thinking a unique design infusion matching the finisher and/or mail carrier from previous years. One per account. Maybe it'd be an enrichment even.

    But that's not very likely unless they add an aura wardrobe imo.

    That chair is awesome. The armor & weapon skins are trash though (luminous).

  • @Donari.5237 said:
    they write that we get the gifts starting August 25, and I wonder if that means they have manually adjusted it or if they have forgotten that Leap Years shift the days so it's usually a day sooner now.

    They've never remembered that in all the years I've been playing ANet games, so that seems more likely than (a) they remembered and (b) they changed the code to account for leap year. (Come to think of it: changing the code for that seems unlikely all on its own.)

    Notable for its absence:

    • Experience Scroll (level 70) (previous birthdays have always included a leveling scroll)
    • 2x Birthday Booster (previous BD's included 1-2 of these)
    • No mention of a title (presumably there would be one) ("Victorious" is the title; thanks to @Jenstone.6891 for pointing that out.)

    Notable for its repetition: Anniversary armor, weapons, backpack, statuettes x2, teleports-to-friend x5, and the new dye kit (contents unknown).

    Final comment: the blog says to "[c]heck out the full list on our official wiki to see what your characters will receive on their next birthday!" Except... the wiki hasn't been updated by ANet with any details different from what we see in the blog. (Normally, players update the wiki; ANet only does so if there's an "official" policy involved.)

    I hope they're still giving us the birthday boosters, I can kinda understand not giving a level 70 scroll but it's odd that they'd drop those boosters.

    You are nearly 7 gw2-years old and don't have hundreds of Tome of Knowledge? (and all the lvl up's from all previous birthdays of all the chars.)
    I think I've more than 20 times lvl 80 lying in my bank and no reason to buy further char-slots (have 17 or so).

    I have loads of the scrolls and tomes. As I said: I understand not giving us the scroll, but I would still like the birthday boosters which aren't listed in the gifts. Those boosters are handy.

  • The "account" rewards should be given for your account's official birthday, not your oldest character. I pre-ordered this game and been playing ever since, but my main character is only 5 years and 6 months because I had decided to create a new character and delete my old one that I wasn't going to use anymore. So yeah, as someone that's been supporting the game since day 1, I think I should be getting those right away. For the character rewards, well, that obviously should wait until they turn 7.

    Read the post again.. he said boosters not the lvl up scrolls.. the pots that give WvW, MF bonuses etc.

    They said boosters but even then, there are people who use the ToK rather than sit on them. There are those who use the instant level scrolls for key farming.

    It is a character birthday gift, not an account birthday gift. If you have 7 characters that are 7 years old, you get 7 gifts. Sounds reasonable.

    So the chair is literally a rock? That's fine with me, as I don't care for in-game chairs, but it gives new meaning to the Charlie Brown phrase, "I got a rock." :p

  • I was waiting for the level 70 scrolls, although I might manage with level 60 ones. Have been planning to level many characters to 80 as a birthday celebration, I guess I could just do that earlier then? Or maybe they will mysteriously still appear? Better wait to be sure, I suppose.
    Anyway, I like the statuettes. (I only care about makeover kits)

    Read the post again. They already conceded that. The character gifts are tied to an account achievement which unlocks the big, singular birthday reward (anniversary skins). People should be able to get that based on their account age instead of being gated by their oldest character's age.

    It goes in line with how it was in GW1, it's your characters bday not account

    many many players asked me from where my chest and legs are.
    so this year a pick the light armor and i'm pretty happy about it.
