    Controller support. Believe me, i was all about the pc masterace with mouse when playing shooters and rts-es in the past, even with gw 1 and core gw 2. Now 42 (yes im old) its not so nice anymore on the wrist, hand, arm and neck to the right. Hot is the most demanding in that part. Thats why i like the action games on steam for example that have controller support. Many people who swear by mouse only forget (or are to young to know) that there was a time when pc games where all about having different input support (joysticks, flightsticks, stearing wheels/peddals etc). That is the power of the pc, customability.

    Having to shuffle my unbound magic gathering tools among nine alts.

    That there’s not enough kitten male armor sets. Also, Anet needs to take a page out of FF14s book and add in “healing booty shorts” for my Mesmer

    "But my children sing to me. Listen. They sing dark, delicious notes about power and family. As their mother, I have to grant them their wish."

    They changed the ingredient pouches from glyph of the herbalist to look like noxious seed pod/ heirloom seed pouch/ thorny seed pouch.

  • Friendly NPCs walking through other friendly NPCs.

    Story/achievement items that serve no real purpose (Nuhoch Warbler, Stone Dwarf Thumb, books like the one of Caudecus' letters, things that Belong In A Museum, etc.).

    The pronunciation of Jormag, jotun, and golem. (And maybe some others I've forgotten?)

  • DietPepsi.4371DietPepsi.4371 Member ✭✭✭

    Some of this has been mentioned already, but I'll include them just to drive the point home of how annoying they are.

    -Chain CC
    -White Mantle Mesmers
    -The animation for Charr walking and running with rifles.
    -Anet being scared of letting vast explorable areas be to 'empty', and filling the area with annoying enemy mobs, so it's not possible to just stop and enjoy the view or enjoy the journey.
    -The Karka Exterminator/Turl Sharptooth's Rifle not being an obtainable rifle skin.
    -Enemies that have crazy long kiting ranges (as in how long they chase you for, not aggro range)
    -Game giving me a ridiculous amount of loot, and then timing me out of the trading post when I try to sell it.
    -Mispronunciation
    -Dodge not dodging in the direction I'm moving.
    -Items that look the same, have the same name, and do the same thing, but don't stack.
    -The core map boundaries being highlighted with grey rectangular mountain ranges that stand out way to much.
    -Engineer backpieces not being obtainable.
    -Warrior shield anims (Holding them out to the side, instead of infront.)

    You stand to benefit more from making friends than you do making enemies.

    Geez and here I'd be happy if Anet would just fix the TP bug that causes selecting individual bags not to correctly show contents when selling. I mean, c'mon this bug has been there since PoF dropped.

  • INVISIBLE WALLS!!! If you don't want us to go somewhere, make the visual terrain match the collision terrain. Still happens in the latest content.

    I would say the indesicive or inconsistent skills design?
    Back in the first few year, we have a director that openly said the changes is to "shake" the meta
    Then, after that, we have another director changing the direction.
    I hope they really sit together and talk among themselves what they really want about the future of the skills design.

    Wyvern. It's from the Latin, it's not a matter of preferences, it's absolutely, linguistically clear: WHY-vern. We had someone on the team start the nastiness of WIV-ern, and it drives me nuts every time I hear it.

    Ok, I'm done now. :anguished:

    And we did say "petty" right? :D

    Ive noticed that people from the west coast are more likely to pronounce it WIV-Ern, all my friends from San Diego did when i moved there, and it was so annoying to listen to,, but id rather here that than get into a semantic argument over whats a dragon and whats not.

    @OP
    Petty Grievances? (sorry Gaile for having you quoted in this post!!!)

    Complete disregard for a classes description(what anet defines the class as) when it comes to balance.

    Powercreep thats been going on in both expansions, i fear what the third expansion will look like.

    The Invisible walls added when mounts where added that blocked off a few really cool unfinished, but still interesting areas of the game(please remove these walls) that didnt affect gameplay whatsoever.

    My beetle mount not drifting no matter what i do!

    Updated with moar:
    being unable to tame a wider variety of friendly animals that would make awesome pets(the Basenji for example).
    seemingly random nature of when AI gives up even if its the same type of mob
    inconsistency of progress towards heart quests, and heart quests that have no rapid way to progress it
    events that got pulled from the game with the NPE yet the hearts in the zone still reference the event(looking at you Arena in plains of ashford), either add the event back or remove the reference(preferably the first one as it was the fastest way to do that heart.)
    weapons/items/armor that uses the same icon as another item
    not being able to see when people last logged on on my friends list

    And the big one

    My Charr not telling the Shining blade to buzz off when it came to "joining them" and serving the Queen, sorry, but no. that was just..god that pulled me out of the story instance so quick, and the "SO MUCH DEATH" shouted later in that story made me want to leave the instance...instantly. Jfc that is one instance when having individual dialogue for different races would have helped so freaking much.

    When you get a really sick aura/infusion effect and know it's not purchasable. Would look great on my Thief... It has distortion on the character, swirling blades around me and black smoke coming from my feet.
    From the back it's not distorted but clear:

    From the Front, I'm distorted:

    and 2 from the side to show the swirling blades around my character:

    Also logging into this annoys me in a funny way:

    Like thanks mate, really needed to log into an Ogre having a scratch n sniff of his arm pit.

    Otherwise: Jumping puzzles and Vistas.... If I wanted to play Assassins Creed, I'd play Assassins creed... And Hearts, some are very sadistic. (in the middle of map completion)

    Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.

    1. Essence of luck. I maxed magic find within 2 weeks of the MF rework. There aren't enough sinks for it.
    2. Dragonite/Empyreal/Bloodstone. Not enough sinks, same as 1.
    3. Invisible objects blocking attacks (like projectiles). Very common in WvW, especially around supply camps.

    • Guild Wars don't having any war between guilds.

    We used too but they removed team queue from PvP... Used to be filled with Guilds fighting it out but it was changed to accommodate solo players and solo rankings.

    I think Guild v Guild might be a thing in WvW still? I know it used to reign heavy, some guilds I knew of even practiced their squad rotations in team queue pvp.

    • Not being able to use waypoints linked on chat while in Mistlock Sanctuary because you get stuck on the 4th layer of the map.
    • When looking at a location through the PVE Daily Panel, you cant zoom in/out or move the map while the 'preview' is going on.
    • Charr not having the Charr NPC /talk emote.
    • The awful sPvP Matchmaking, and i'm not talking about afkers or trolls, but being matched against dragon players as a simple wolf rank player.
    • Instruments being serverside instead of client-sided (you can't hear the note the same time youre playing it because of high ping/latency).
    • Game demands more GPU power than necessary, I have a gaming laptop and I can run many games easily, but just having GW2 active my laptop starts feeling like a toaster and I can't even use internet browser freely.
    • Dye-previewing...
    • A lot of basic features like bank space and living world chapters being microtransactions on the game.
    • Contested Waypoints, like if you would exploit anything on open world by resurecting instantly or something.

    Years just pass like trains

    When the devs make very inconsistent choices. For example meta and map rewards/vendors between HoT and PoF. And price inconsistencies like the gem store chairs.

    I guess interaction priority is petty with how devs address that issue that effects everyone.

  • 1) CC-chains
    2) Items/gear that "clips" (shoulders that deletes your helmet when weapons are pulled and the like)
    3) None-sellable items

  • I often subconsciously grunt when to have to pick up a conjured weapon.

  • Ranger core pets being very repedetive and not unique skill wise since they share so much skills and their ai

  • Dadnir.5038Dadnir.5038 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Being in combat and seeing in combat mobs running faster than me when I have a movement speed "buff" and they don't. This is a thing that just drive me crazy since release.

    That's why I like the Jacaranda with all that lightning, or the Iboga with all that mesmer slime on the floor. Even if the effects are numerically bog-standard, at least they look different.

    • Toward the end of the personal story step "Source of Orr" (lvl 80), King Reza says, "For this service, I grant you an ancient honor: you shall carry the title "Champion of Orr" from this day forward." Yet you do not actually get this title in your achievements. I WANT THIS TITLE!!!!

    But Fire orchid seeds are not useless. You can turn them for Fire Orchid Blossom at the first NPC of the map.
    Ahaah, you're right for the title. When I did it the first time, I opened the hero panel to check if I really got that title :)

    4. Trahearne getting to be a necromancer wielding a greatsword even BEFORE reaper class was made playable. and don't give me that "it was a gift from mother tree" nonsense.
    9. Despite killing an elder dragon, Logan remains in the friend-zone with QJ.
    12. Trahearne gets a statue. for doing nothing. and we do not get statues of our Order mentors... who gave their lives to save thousands. Tybalt... never forget.

    Ehi! Trahearne cleansed Orr, OOWWR! It's not nothing! And lead the Pact, the dude deserved a statue. But you're right, we should have it too. The problem is that we weren't with our order anymore for our best deeds, so Tyrians must agree upon who will build it. Politics is slow, you know.
    Just lol for the #9 and you're right on the #4, I also noticed it.

    Mine (not really a grievance) is that Caithe must die, since she killed a dear sister to spare a crazy lover (thus letting big E. and big T. die). Though I'm aware that love makes you blind.

  • Not being able to break the musical instruments of people that decide to practice next to the bank. (yes I know you can turn the sound off but some people play them exceptionally well ....away from the vendors.)

  • -getting CC spammed
    -logging in and getting attacked while in loading screen
    -Dhuum greens, orbs hitboxes still wonky
    -inconsistent pricing on gemstore
    -being a healer in raids STOP GETTING HIT CA IS ON COOLDOWN!
    -my luck with getting precursors. took 7k hours to get my first (and only) one. artificial pricing of crafting precursor to go along with that.
