Lord Krilik.3692 Posted March 26, 2022 Share Posted March 26, 2022 (edited) Here are some features I would like to see in the next expansion. 1. Playable Tengu. Now that effort has been put into creating varied Tengu appearances in EoD I think we have a good base of faces and styles to expand on and make them playable. I understand that making them playable in past story content would be a challenge but given we have now wrapped up the dragon story I think expansion 4 is a lerfect time to bring then to the game with the caveat that their story starts in that expansion and a Tengu character either cannot play past content or must "play through the eyes of the commander" and Arenanet can simply have us choose from a premade character appearance of another race who will be considered the Canonical Commander as if we are playing through a flashback sequence (I.e you select a female sylvari when starting the story chapter for living world season 2 and you play as a pre designed female svlvari for that chapter but with all your gear and skills etc). You can select the pre designed character when starting each chapter so you can change it if you want between chapters. This way all the voice lines etc dont have to be redone for the Tengu either as it will just play the voice of the character you chose. 2. Player housing Update the guild decorations to be housing decorations as well and let us build our own homes. It's a staple feature in MMOs and the community has been gagging for it for years. 3. Naval combat and guild ships We have Skiffs now. Let's bring in Naval combat. Large ships built and owned by guilds, piloted by guilds, with weaponry and tasks for guild members to do to keep the boat intact and moving during the fight. Have us face off against other guilds, against big sea monsters, etc. Let's hit the open waters and see what undiscovered lands lie beyond. 4. Reinvestment in existing features/QoL Specifically: - guild missions need more love and investment - add more adventures around the world. EoD and Core could use a few sprinkled in. - clean up of the achievement panel - fractals are hard to level up because people only want to do the dailies. Make this simpler to encourage people back in. - More mount races - improved UI for guilds, squads, lfg, etc 5. New weapons If we go to a new land then it's a perfect time to add new weapons that Fyria s might not have known about. This way it also gets around the issue of having less skins for it initially. You also don't need to grant every weapon to every class. If just 2 or 3 weapons types are added then perhaps one or two core classes could get a new weapon and a few elite specs as well. These can be granted strategically so as to manage the resource investment in adding them. 6. Elite specs It's a no brainer but I still want to say it. More Elite specs!! Specifically though: - Revenant caster archetype. I really wanted Togo for EoD but it didn't happen :(. Give us a scepter and/or focus. - Thief spec that is tankier and relies on staying I combat more than fleeing and plays with the revealed mechanic more so than stealth (risk vs reward of inflicting revealed on yourself which will mean no stealth but will grant other benefits). Off-and torch please! - Bard/Paragon archetype. Either Warrior or mesmer. The Elite will play a series of chants and after a combination of 3 of them it will produce an "echo" which is like a final effect based on the order the chants were strung together. Playing chants in a different order will produce different effects. If warrior then land spear or scepter (think "drum sticks"). If mesmer then shortbow or Mace (again, think "drumsticks"). That's all I can think of for now. Keen to hear any other ideas people have! Edited March 26, 2022 by Lord Krilik.3692 6 4 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
