Please add the Dragon Emblem Outfit

Please add the Dragon Emblem Outfit to the Black Lion Statuettes. Besides the limited codes given out to very few people I don't think there is any other way to get the outfit in the game. It puts nearly every player at a disadvantage because we have no way to acquire it.

    How is not having an outfit a disadvantage? Are we talking AP's here?

    Disadvantage in that we have no method to acquire it. We can't buy it, we can't acquire it as a reward, etc. The only people who got it happened to be in the right place at the right time. Not everyone who plays the game can attend GW2 related real world events or have time to watch specific live streams. GW2 is as much about content and item unlocks as it is about playing the story or going killing stuff.

  • Dragon Emblem t-shirt and the celebration cap was limited as it was part of the gw2 opening. It would make little sense to make them available again.

  • Eloc Freidon.5692Eloc Freidon.5692 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'm fine with the GW2 shirt not being made available to newer players. However that doesn't mean I don't want regular shirts added to the wardrobe.

    The Dragon Emblem shirt was an item only given out to people who managed to get them right around launch. They’re fairly exclusive and I’m not sure that ANet would like to hand them out again and anger the people who got the shirts back then. However possibly they could make a one similar to the original dragon shirt but not identical. That way people can have a Dragon shirt in game and the people who have the 2012 ingame shirt still have an exclusive item.

    Even if it did make a few of them angry the game is 6 years old. Having an item for the first 6 years of the game is exclusive enough. Is any of them even playing the game anymore. I've never seen a single player with it.

    Bringing out new versions would be nice also but still I can't see any valid reason to keep the original locked away from the general player base.

    Generally businesses don’t reissue time sensitive exclusive items As far as I know they didn’t reissue exclusive minipets in Guild Wars 1 and minipets were a big deal in that game. So I’m not expecting them to do it in this case, no matter how few people who have the Dragon shirt and still play. I think it would be far better and more likely to get results if players ask for a similar item as reissuing time sensitive exclusive items can make a company look like it’s going back on a promise to those people that this item was only for this time.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    Implementing something similar would be a good compromise. But I can still understand the people who want the dragon shirt. To be honest, new players often get the middle finger anyway since there are enough rewards for people who are playing GW2 from the beginning (birthday-presents with fairly good-looking costumes - people don't even have to play actively for these), AP-rewards (daily AP - 15k in total - make up a huge portion), disadvantages in fractal- and raid-content through the KP/LI-system, the permanent loss of LWS1, etc. pp.

    One thing a lawyer might comment on if they’re reading this thread, are there legal issues when a company has a limited giveaway of an exclusive item tied to a specific event and time and later has a mass selling of the same item? I have no idea what laws might be for time sensitive giveaways of exclusive items but there may well be legal restrictions on selling it later.

    I really don't think game codes handed out at some random event is going to qualify as a promise. I got an exclusive PoF weapon skin with my "pre-purchased" of PoF yet the same skin was freely available to anyone who unlocked it from a weapon drop or salvaged the drop. Is it ok for them to do it for some and not others? Ok for freebies given at a random event but not for paying players? Your justification is invalid since they are doing it for some but not others.

    Fully game for a variant that doesn't have the dragon, but shows your guild logo instead. Keep the Dragon motive exclusive.

    Exactly. While I would love to own that outfit myself, I can see how this is a super prestigeous thing to own, and I believe all current owners would be very displeased if it became available for everyone to purchase.

    I'd rather have ANet take care of the completely messed up dye channels for those town clothing outfits.

    You didn’t get an “exclusive” PoF weapon skin. It was a bonus item but not exclusive as it was a weapon from the ingame Sunspear Weapon set and it told you that at purchase. .

    source
    The Spearmarshal’s Gift A special gift from an anonymous source in Elona who hopes to find you a useful ally. Signed simply, “A friend.” Use this to choose one weapon skin from the Sunspear weapon set.

    The exclusive item was the Mini Rogue Balthazar, which is listed as only available from prepurchase of PoF and there was an exclusive title, Elonian Envoy. Now if these 2 items are available or become available by other means than the PoF prepurchase then you have a point.

    On September 1, 2012, my boyfriend and I drove two hours to Austin, Texas, to the GameStop where ANet was hosting their launch event. We got there two hours before the event was supposed to start, because I was worried the line to get in would be so long that it would end before we could get in. We brought our paperback copies of the two GW2 novels that were out at the time, and I wore my Geek Jeans. It was incredible. Devs autographed a GW2 poster and our books. I showed them the Ele symbol I had added to my Geek Jeans in honor of GW2. We drove the two hours home and used our codes to get our special outfits.

    My boyfriend is now my husband of five years, and we still play GW2 and love wearing our GW2 shirt outfits.

    And yeah, the shirt is something special that not many people have. But for me, the specialness really comes from that trip and those memories. Sharing snacks in the car. Getting lost on the way to the GameStop. Standing in line for forever. Having one dev get another dev's attention to point out how cool my Geek Jeans are. Holding hands with my love on the way home while discussing our next goals in GW2.

    This is exactly why not everyone should have this item. Regardless of the following comment of ....

    If other people would like a way to get the GW2 shirt in game, it really doesn't bother me. I don't need a way to signal to everyone in game that I'm somehow different/special/whatever. No matter how many people have the item, I'll always have those awesome memories, and that's the important part to me. <3

    I think the people who have the codes for these items are lucky af ... but I dont think Anet should compensate the rest of us by making it available in outfit form or otherwise. Sorry OP I disagree with this entirely.

    But all mini pets in GW1 were tradable (even after they were dedicated in the Hall of Monuments, you just couldn't dedicate them if someone else had done it). I have numerous event exclusive GW1 mini pets from events I never attended, including some which happened before I got the game. Several of them were also added to the 7th year birthday gifts.

    It's kind of the same with the dragon t-shirt because they were given out as a code to add to your account and there was absolutely nothing stopping people from selling or giving away those codes. There were quite a few on ebay, for months after release, although they're much less common now. So a lot of those shirts are already in the hands of people who didn't attend the events they were given out at, as I understand it that means any idea of exclusivity is long gone, or never existed.

    It's not directly relevant for me since I don't have it and don't want it, but if the reason for not re-releasing it is because only people who attended the events where it was given out should have it then the system has been flawed since the start and I don't see how making them available again would do any more harm.

    Well, it actually does for your personal gameplay and towards the community. This game isn't also called fashion wars without reason. There's no kind of progression-system besides fashion. So yeah, cosmetics are an advantage in a game which is mostly about cosmetics.

    This would be like something that SWTOR did. At some point early in the life of the game, they released a toy-like thing called the Party Jawa. The details aren't important, except that it enabled access to a few achievements on the planet Tatooine, and without it, you could not get 100% achievement completion on that planet.

    As you might expect, this generated a trickle of complaints over the years, and about 18 months ago, if memory serves, they issued a new item called the Celebration Jawa. It looks different from the Party Jawa, but it allows access to those achievements. So people who have the Party Jawa can pull it out and show it off and still do the achievements, and people who have the Celebration Jawa can pull it out and do the achievements (and because it, too, was a time-locked exclusive whose time is over, they can show it off as well).

    Even if it did make a few of them angry the game is 6 years old. Having an item for the first 6 years of the game is exclusive enough. Is any of them even playing the game anymore. I've never seen a single player with it.

    I have seen people wearing it, and recently, too (in the last few weeks).

    Bringing out new versions would be nice also but still I can't see any valid reason to keep the original locked away from the general player base.

    Depends, I guess, on how you define "valid". I have seen the codes listed on some dubious auction site (not eBay!), but of course at a substantial price that I'm in no way willing to pay just for that. (Especially since it's then necessary to trust that the seller has not already used it and/or sold it to seventeen other people...)

    You’re confusing two separate things, the release of an item and what happens to the released item later on. It’s the side that releases the item that’s makes the claim of exclusivity (due to restricted numbers, restricted time of release, or it’s specific to an event). The people who get the item are not the ones making the claim and unless they’ve also made promises they can do what they want with the item after they get it.

    Be careful what you ask for

    This "Fashion is the endgame" meme is just that, a meme that you have bought into. It does a tremendous disservice to the hard work the developers do to keep us engaged and entertained in the product. It completely invalidates the work of multiple branches of the people who do some of the best work in the industry.
    It's a tired, played out line that gets trotted out during arguments like this or when people don't like the pricing of (again optional and completely cosmetic) gemstore items.

    Put simply... if fashion is the endgame, then GW2 is the biggest pay to win game going.
    But it isn't... and it isn't.

  • Xenon.4537Xenon.4537 Member ✭✭✭

    This outfit is the one thing on my account that is special that stands apart from everyone else... I kinda want it to stay that way. Call me selfish. It's just an outfit. You guys are probably all running around with queen bee infusions and 75 legendary weapons that I could never hope to get because of my limited play time.

  • Deimos.4263Deimos.4263 Member ✭✭✭

    Whether it be this outfit handed out at an event, minis only obtainable by playing another game (GW1), or anniversary gift rewards based on character creation date, the issue with all these exclusive rewards is that they're not rewarded for actually playing this game.

    For that reason, it would be nice if they were at least obtainable some other way. Or if that's unpalatable, maybe just make the unobtainable not viewable at all? Because it's always been annoying to see something you can't get. Why do I even have a Hall of Monuments stone? It's completely useless to me.

    Now, I'm not begrudging those who were there at the right time and then actually played this game. People should be rewarded for supporting the game! But consider someone who was merely around at launch, played GW1, and then left for five years. They could have all of the above today, despite never really playing GW2 at all.

    Whereas I cannot, even though I've averaged six hours a day, every day, since 2015. That doesn't really seem right. I'd like to see some rewards based on hours-played milestones. That's a lot more fair in my opinion.

  • starhunter.6015starhunter.6015 Member ✭✭✭

    No, they should stay as is. Even though I want one myself it is not right to ruin their value to those who managed to get one.
    That being said I would not mind something Similar maybe like a tunic top or something with a new Dragon emblem on it.

    but not officially from Anet, that's the entire point here.

  • I grudgingly agree the t-shirt and cap should be kept exclusive...but I would really love to have a similar t-shirt and baseball cap for my characters.

    I would think that since free codes are being sold by people other than ANet they should invalidate the whole exclusive thing. ANet should devalue them by making them available in the game.

    Connect the app to my social media accounts? No thanks. I keep that mess disabled for security. I've already dealt with an app spam everyone I was connected to before. ANet won't even let us post images directly on the forum for security reasons but their ad partner wants access to our social media accounts. That isn't happening to my accounts.

    It doesn't work at the moment - that app seems to be fundamentally flawed. I don't mind giving people data from an alias social media account, so I'd be happy if that weird app would work to get the outfit.

    Make a new account, link it, get the codes, delete the app and the account.

    Although if you're in an EU country it's now illegal for them to sell your data or use it for any purpose except the reason you give it to them, so unless you agree to marketing they can't send any. (And yes it applies to companies based outside the EU, it's where the customer is that's important.)

    no, what about just block all the codes from now on, that way the exclusive part stays exclusive.

    Now that's exclusive... It would need a code with a expiration date to avoid code resellers.
