What currently are your favourite things to do in GW2?

I find myself personally farming Malchor and playing PVP endlessly. I would like to know what do you do in game, so as to get some ideas of what I can try in my spare time.

    Playing the lw udpates when they come out.

    I dunno if you'd be interested in what I do. It's mostly gathering, fashion wars, leveling alts by wandering around the core maps, and silly stuff like waving to Canach when I zone in to Dragonfall ;)

    Log on when new dyes are released and try them on in the hero tab and then say "neat" then log out and watch mario maker 2 twitch streams waiting for next elite specs while wondering if alliances will even happen and hoping for a graphical makeover for existing WvW maps and reminiscing about when scrapper was good.

    Trigger map chat people in major cities on how there is so much "content" to play and how great GW2 is (:

  • Meta events and map completion. Skyscale makes that so easy, and I always like free BL keys.

    Logging in for the daily reward chest. I mostly play other games atm.

    PvP? What's that? Never heard of it.

  • For me, I boosted to level 80 and currently going through the story again with a new character. I haven't played the game since like 2015 and but I'm really enjoying it and I'm glad I came back.

  • If there's something new, I do that - lw, festivals, ranked pvp if in season. I don't play much, so usually by the time I get everything I want with the new lw the next new has come, so I always have new stuff to do. If it so happens that there's nothing on the horizon I would try Fractals or WvW.

  • Fractals almost every day. There's enough variety there to keep it interesting and the instabilities make me adapt to new situations. Not to mention the profits for a round of T4s are pretty amazing.

    Hmm. I do dailies most days. A few times a week I'll do guild WvW for as long as its on. Occasionally, if guild member X needs content Y for reward Z and there's a request to help, I'll do that. Once in a while, I'll drop a bunch of mats from storage on the TP.

    I'm not sure if those qualify for the adjective "favorite." To me, favorite implies I do other things, and atm I don't.

    I can't say I have a favorite activity to do in GW2 because I do almost everything but what GW2 managed to do very well as compared to other video game was the world exploration, the jumping puzzles and of course the mounts.

    Open world exploration. It may not be the thing I'm doing most at the moment (lately I haven't had time for much more than 3 festival dailies) but it's the thing I most look forward to doing. New (to me) maps are my favourite, but there's also several maps or areas I enjoy repeating.

    Importantly for me map completion includes lots of things which aren't required for the map completion tracker - I do events as I come across them, jumping puzzles when I find them (or when I'm passing if I already know it's there), talk to NPCs, do achievements which I find myself progressing as I go along or which seem interesting and anything else I come across in the process. This means completing a map can take me a very long time, but I find it much more fun than rushing through a 'checklist' of locations because I never quite know what I'm going to end up doing.

    My favourite thing is exploring new maps.
    so i'm a bit stuffed now.

  • kratan.4619kratan.4619 Member ✭✭✭

    If I feel like I have run out of things to do, I usually just make another alt and do another world completion.

    I like to talk to NPC's everywhere as I'm travelling and listen to what they have to say. There's soooo many little lore tidbits out there!

    Agreed. I love the lore bits you can find around, and the odd conversations. Like the guy who asks one of the Zephyrites who had to sit on Aurene's egg. The response is something like "Sit? On the egg of the scion? Last hope for the world against the Elder Dragons?" And the guys just like "So...that's a no?"

    One reason I'm glad my main character joined the Order of Whispers is you occasionally get additional dialogue from Whispers agents around the world. It's usually references to nearby events, mini dungeons and things like that but I really like the extra lore.

    Unbound Magic gathering dailies. I spend most of my time in LS3, I just find the content more enjoyable then the rest of the game. I would enjoy events more if the frame didn't drop so much.

    WvW for Gift of Battle and Mystic Clover. Especially since I learned that certain (unrepeatable) tracks reward 7 clovers instead of the usual 2.

    I've enjoyed having a new focus. I'm not new to WvW but it's been a while since I've played this game mode with any regularity or dedication. Also enjoying the quick and easy WvW dailies now that I'm actually paying attention.

  • Locating thieves in WvW and forcibly removing a bag from their corpse.

  • My truest love is gathering and crafting but at this time I need my characters nearby to help me with our inventories in preparation for their birthday celebrations.
    So a new hobby was needed, same as an old one. I am not apparently tired of the same jumping puzzles I did constantly during the earlier years. Weyandt's Revenge every day!

    let the sky fall

  • Gathering, crafting and guild decorating :)
    After 7 years I feel I have done most of the things I am interested in and now I am exploring my creative side. I wish we had housing like ESO though.

    Fractal speed kills, raids, Black Lion Chest Openings, random.

    WvW, the only thing that kept my interest after quitting achievement hunting, dungeon, fractal and meta farming.

  • Blocking ppl in PVP.

  • Goettel.4389Goettel.4389 Member ✭✭✭✭

    HoT metas, still.
