  • It's 2020, can we get unisex hairs now? It would provide a lot of new customization for people.

  • Please, please, please make Green Medallions Salvageable, so we can nuke them out of our storage.

  • How about fixing the lag in Path of Fire and Living World season 4?
    I truly regret spending my gems when I'm Lag Locked for 8 seconds while getting wailed on by some of the most vicious pve mobs in the game.

  • Merge NA with EU server if that is a possibility. So we can all game together

    My main character is warrior and I'm in love with the Berserker Elite speicalization.
    I want to give a suggestion about the Primal Burst with longbow called Scorched Earth (the F1 skill).
    What the skill does is "Fire a burning shot into the ground that creates a trail of flaming destruction." with range 1200 and radius 120.
    This skill is awesome BUT in raids its potential is kinda wasted for the reason you are mainly fighting a single boss and most of the times your squad is fighting stacked on him.
    If we take for example this as the trail of the skill and the boss(B) is close to the player(P)
    P[ B ][__][__][__][__]
    As you can see 4 /5 of the trail is wasted.
    This won't matter that much if the boss was static but bosses like Matthias, Souless Horror, Dhuum or Twin Largos, where condition dps is recommended, are quite often moved around because of mechanics. So what happens to the Scorched Earth skill if the boss gets moved left or right from your skill?
    For examle:
    . . B
    P[__][__][__][__][__]
    . . B
    He avoids the radius of the skill and your skill is wasted.
    What my suggestion is a trait to be created, unique for situations where you'll be attacking a single/multiple targets in close range and turn the current skill
    from this
    P[__][__][__][__][__]
    to this
    [__][__]
    P[__][__][__]
    [__][__]
    This way the player won't be punished with dps-loss that much from moving bosses/enemies. The skill will look a bit like Fan of Fire (skill 3 longbow) but leaving a trail below it.

    With the new fractal and the last boss CM encounter I felt like it would be great for the party to have marks which can be placed on the ground or above someones head. The system is there(in the squad groups) and it doesn't hurt someones gameplay outside of the party. Why this isn't implemented yet? I hate the current workaround with this problem by making people put personal marks on the minimap and try keeping track of them in the heat of the action. Our look is supposed to be on the field not on the minimap.

  • Gopaka.7839Gopaka.7839 Member ✭✭✭

    Just saw a youtuber singing, pretending to be a siren. I think it will be a cool add to the game . Maybe add a neutral siren that sings on some rock close to some Canthan coast like an easter egg or make a world boss or meta of a siren that can be heard all over the map until it is killed. It will add a huge flavour to the game. Here's the vid of her. Hire her ArenaNet! ->

    In the Captain's Airship Pass lounge, there's a Helmsman that can take you to places

    Can you please add Eye of the North and Lion's Arch Aerodrome to those places?

    please make a Taimi voice mail pack

  • Jura.2170Jura.2170 Member ✭✭✭

    In Eye of the North, there's a npc that sells Chests of Central Tyrian weapons

    like

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Chest_of_Central_Tyrian_Staves

    but the wiki doesnt say what attribute combinations are in the chest

    Can someone please add a list of them to the wiki, and also change the game text for the chest to say as well?

    please make a Taimi voice mail pack

    1) add 'View on Wiki' as an item Rt-Click option
    2) Let us earn or buy a Skritt servant to fetch TP coins after a sale completes.
    3) Game cursor size/shape is already controlled by the client. Enhance it to be larger with other contrast options in the setting screen.

    Moral Statute Machine: John Spartan, you are fined five credits for repeated violations of the verbal morality statute.

  • Hello its possible to add to the game Specific Keybinding for every character, also you would have the options to keep the same hotkey for all your characters or speficic ones.

    Second one would be great if you could move somethings on your interface, like party frame or even target frame, Ive a big monitor and its awful .

    third Can you make an option to turn off the green effect of Reaper form that makes your screen green if you are in wvw or even in a squad??? Its just so horrible to have a whole green screen with 100000 effects on your screen, I dont know if its just me, but that makes 1000 harder to see anything doing wvw with your screen greem.

    forth if you could add some options to change your cursor like yolomouse, playing wvw to see your cursor on those big fights its really bad, I had to pay for the yolomouse to be able to see the mouse, maybe for experienced players the got used to it, but now with steam etc, many players might join the game, and this option Would make much more enjoyable the game.

    Thank you.

    Since i can't find where to write it.
    It's not for Guild Wars 2, but for Guild Wars 1.
    Recent patch broke -password command line, now GW1 can't be auto-logged in.
    Can you please add 'remember password' for GW1, just like GW2 has right now. Or atleast fix -password command line. It simply doesn't work.

    It is very uncomfortable without proper auto-login in GW1.

  • Unbreakable harvesting container applied for all characters (without need to swop in and out), that are slightly faster, with less animation, and harvest more

  • @Rankomonaut.4708 said:
    Either tools that harvest until the node is empty -
    or

    • a paid service:

    -> 50s for all ore nodes
    -> 50s for all wood nodes
    -> 25s for all harvest nodes
    -> 1g for all containers (wintersday tree included)

    A butler charges a wage, say 5% to 10% of the harvest, I have 30 home instance nodes and goody "boxes" , the 30 separate stops with unlimited gathering tools or the keys takes to much time. It will only get worse with a new expansion. I did it for a year or two but have slowed down now, The cost of the butler would be made to compensate for the change where removal of lazy instance owners from the economy added to supply. The gems to hire the butler pay the developers etc for the design(s)..

  • Aeon.4583Aeon.4583 Member ✭✭✭

    Add Unused versions of Glyphs for Gathering tools to Black Lion Vendor for price of Black Lion Statuetes.
    Right now Glyph of the Leatherworker cost more than Thunderstrike Harvesting Tool and it has Glyph of the Leatherworker by default. This is kinda ridiculous that Infinite Tool + Glyph is cheaper than Glyph alone.

    It happened because Glyph of the Leatherworker didn't appear in Black Lion chests for very long time. That overprice for Glyphs can be fixed by adding unused versions to Black Lion Vendor.

    Would it be possible to have an additional Cosmetic armor slot of the face?
    it's a little annoying to make a character that wears glasses only to have them take those glasses off anytime they wear a hat.

  • Range indicators for traps or skills that require a recall such as Shadow Trap (preparation) that will indicate if we are in range of a SUCCESSFUL recall to placement point A in order to use.

    • Make it possible when salvaging massive amounts of food/gear to hold down mouse button and it automatically salvages everything in that slot until there is nothing left. This is important for those chiefs who need to make supercompost for herb seeds.
    • I'm sure it's been asked before, wardrobe slots. You can save and change your looks, without having to use transmutation charges again, or without switching gears for the sake of it (imagine creating several ascended pieces just for the sake of fashion, altough it may not be unheard of but it's stupid because it could be handled very differently.) Like outfits, but your own creations.
    • Let my gathering tools be actually account wide in a sense that I don't have to unequip it, shove it in a bank and re-equip that on a different character. If one character has it equipped, I would like there to be an option that all my other characters have it.
    • Total Makeover Kit saves. Let me save my looks. I know it's possible to create a code for your model because Wildstar had that.
    • Any chance of turning your DX9 into DX12? Or whatever it's called. I would rather rely on Anet's implementation, because I am lazy as kitten. Community made it possible, why not Anet?
      Thanks for reading.
  • A gemstore/QoL idea, bring back the old Lions Arch by one of two ways. One, blow it up and rebuild the old one, or two, make a pass like Mistlocke for the old LA (with 100% access to the entire old LA city) both for old players to be back at the best city ever and to let new players experience the magic there. :smiley:

  • Please fix the inconsistencies with buying and selling at the TP with the "buy/sell instantly" button.

    When we buy items, and the amount needed is more than the first seller in the list, it will automatically select the next seller (etc. etc) until the required amount is reached.

    Why does it not do this when we sell items? Why does it insist on doing a separate sell order for each buyer AND make us click the first buyer in the list (when we can't select any other buyer anyway) AND make us scroll all the way from 1 to max? (when it doesn't do that for the first order)

    It's infuriating as hell to do all the extra clicks when selling a lot of stuff and trip the arbitrary "you have placed too many sell orders" limit, for no reason whatsoever.

  • A favorite tab or category (that fold section) for craft stations.

  • TheGrimm.5624TheGrimm.5624 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Sure in here somewhere but if not worth re-adding. When opening any crafting window, start with the groupings collapsed. Additionally if reasonable, add in a toggle under game options defaulted as unchecked that would make the view act like it does today, but if checked the collapsed view is seen when opening the frame. That way veteran crafter can more quickly get to the section they need versus have to scroll all the way down to the area they want to get to and new players would start like everyone did and see things fill in as they learn more recipes. Another way to get to the same result would be a checkbox at the top of frame that acted as collapse all/expand all feature.

    Can we get a bind for contextual mounting, like if we're in the water if I hit the key it would mount the skimmer, in wvw it would mount the warclaw, if I'm in the air it would mount the griff or skyscale depending on which you have selected as preferred, and if you're on the ground anywhere else; (whatever you would select as preferred possibly in an options dropdown menu)

    I'd like to see a second area to track achievements. We have the one on the HUD but I'd like to see another on the Hero Panel that lists ones you want to track but don't want to clutter the HUD with. The spot on the GUI where you take them to follow could be set to gold sun for tracking in both places and a silver moon for just the hero panel. The reason why I suggest a sun and moon is for those out there that might be color blind. I'm not sure if they would have a problem telling gold from silver.

  • DeanBB.4268DeanBB.4268 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Not to mention the annoyance of it hiding the dailies. I've often added several achievements to the watch list and worked on them, only to remove them at reset time so I can more easily see the dailies.

    Yea, that's the primary reason why I suggested it. The dailies go straight to the bottom and hidden if you have more than a few items listed. They could also give priority to the dailies to be listed at the top.

    I thought the hero panel already had this. Everything you track by clicking on the eye, automatically goes to a separate, larger panel called 'The Watch List' and lists everything you want to follow

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

  • You can always move (change the order) the tracked achievements so they show on the HUD.
    Just drag and drop (from the list in the Hero Panel).

  • Solanum.6983Solanum.6983 Member ✭✭✭

    I think the outfits tab should be reworked to be less disjointed and the one place where you customize your character.
    The Bulk of this Idea is that The Outfits Tab would work as a wardrobe and now have Preset Outfits, Armors and Dye combination slots on the Right side.

    Wardrobe Panel
    On the Left side would be where you pick from a drop down of Outfits or Light. Heavy, Medium Armor. For example Selecting Light Armor would bring all unlocked light armor for you to mix and match, Just like how the outfits work now. Dyeing would work Just like the wardrobe function with slots beside the icons, Click the dye channels on the side of the armor to open up the dye menu. Once your done click save and the combination is saved to a preset on the right side.

    Preset Panel
    On the Right side are slots with screenshots of each outfit or armor combination you have saved. A red (!) symbol will appear on a preset if you are not wearing an armor type to match. A Wear button is in each slot for you to quickly click and readjust your outfit.
    I'd suggest getting rid of transmutation charges since It's just added inconvenience but a popup menu could appear each time you click wear of the transmutation cost.

    Aura Tab
    Additionally all Cosmetic Auras (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Cosmetic_aura) have a bind to account or skin unlock option just like Novelties and are stored in the wardrobe to save into presets too.

    Mounts
    Juts like with the dye channel the horseshoe beside the armor icon remains and when you click it, it opens up the same system but for presets with mounts and various skins/dye combinations.

    And make it optional. For example, there would be a generic binds which you can use for any character, like a traits build, you just swap into it. Maybe it would be possible to save bindings like that?
    As for why:
    For efficency/tactical reasons I have made my movement E, S, F. D is interact. I had 2, 3 etc as profession skills and have wep/utility skills positioned around ESFDs. Since I use marking as Dead Eye almost all the time, I found it easier to move it into a more assesible place, the key between shift and Z. But wait, there is the skill that appears after I have marked an enemy. It would be silly to reach for 3, so I position it in Z. But this is bad, because I had an utility skill in Z. So I had to move an utility skill into 3... and that's fine as deadeye because I use a signet I hardly activate. This could be a problem on other classes though. What if I have 3 utility skills I want to actively use? Holosmith needs their separate special button as well, altough it's only ONE, meaning they can give up Z for utility skill.
    So, at this point you're probably very confused, but understand this, let different characters have their own key bindings, thank you.
    (I suck at explaining things, sorry)

    Would be a usefull feature and is also often requested, but as we don't know, if it will ever be implemented, maybe you can try arcdps in the meantime, because it offers class-keybinds.

    Forum related:

    Would it be possible to show the server-region below the forum avatar? Just NA or EU.

    Reason is rather simple. We get a lot of questions on the boards which require this little information to be solved properly. A lot of answers are delayed, just because we first have to ask the topic-creators where they are from and then wait for a response. In several cases, the topic dies before that happens. This is quite frustrating for both sides.

  • Would it be possible to have a function to favorite items on crafting screen in the future? It would make it a lot faster to find the items you generally make in bulk/often. :3

    Would it be possible to add typing detection feature for slow typing players like myself?
    I think it would be useful to add a grey/ low opacity chat box with ellipsis above the players head to indicate that they are typing something in chat.

  • I have ideas for roleplayers. I came from a really excellent RP guild on a wonderful server in Everquest II, so I'm a little spoiled, I admit. I'd love to have designated RP servers. Also, can we have a different color for player /em text? Preferably a shade of purple? (I love purple! And I named my RP guild "Royal Purple" so that I can even have an RP tag.) The gray just blends in with the NPC chatter and makes it hard to follow character storylines. Which reminds me, it might make it even easier if you provide a way to show that your character is currently in roleplay mode. And my last suggestion: can we have a way to make notes by our friends names so we can remember where we met and played with them? Not all of us have steel trap young minds!

    Especially for the crafting Recipes.
    I know I can hover my pointer over each item to check for the status, but, I don't want to spend whole day checking stuff on the TP, I want spend time to play the game.

    Please add : to the filter out - "items I already owned" for skins, minis, crafting recipes etc

    thank you.

    PS: if it is not too much to ask, please also add a notification for item I do not already own when it pops up in the Trading Post so i can buy them all. for completion purposes.

    This will help players to get rid of annoyance that is using food every 30 mins from inventory. And when you do something... intense, either in wvw or pve, you can simply forget to renew food and lose benefits.
    Also it will help Ascended food and Primer Flasks to have more value.
    Single portion of Ascended food will provide 3 hours. Non-ascended foods and utilities will provide almost same effect but it will take 4 portions ( 2 portions of Potent Utilities ).
    In case with Flasks, not everyone prefer to grow ingridients for them, better effect duration will bring more attention to those. BL primers will remain with 12 hours, makes it superior to Flasks.
