MacLean.4087 Posted August 18, 2022 Share Posted August 18, 2022 This is a bit trivial, but thought I'd try to get it out of the way before the system gets swamped with new Steam-players. My issue is a "pop-up' that keeps coming up in my game. Virtually any time I do anything with any character, I get a notice saying: "Your current ability is fully trained and ready to master!" This is fine, and I understand that it is designed to attract attention. However, the problem is that I do not care. Between GW1 and GW2 I've been playing about 15 years - And I'm not playing for "masteries". I have no particular interest in masteries, achievements, or even PVP. I imagine I will eventually acquire more mastery-points just by wandering around, but have no interest in actively seeking them (Though I've probably accrued enough exp for a dozen more "mastery points") - It's just not what I play for. Meanwhile, this pop-up is constantly covering the chat and otherwise distracting every time anything happens in the game. Yes, I can click on the "x" to remove it - For about 10 seconds (unless I'm in a battle, in which case it comes back in about half a second). It makes communicating difficult. It's become every bit as annoying as a 20 minute ad in a 3 minute YouTube video. I can find no way to shut it off (It isn't under "Hide Optional Announcements"), or even move it out of the way. So the question is: How do I get rid of, or move, this thing? In GW1 I could resize and relocate virtually the entire interface, piece by piece - So why isn't that possible in GW2? No one in-game has any ideas beyond "Go work on your masteries" - To which my answer is : "No". I have 7 level 80 characters wandering around and if I try to fulfill masteries with all of their compiled exp, I won't have time to do anything else. It would turn the game into "work", and I would come to hate it. Part of the problem is that I have gone out of my way to get a couple mastery-points to alleviate this, but I have enough piled-up exp that it just comes right back. And I simply don't want to devote all my time to this. Also, in my opinion, nagging doesn't help and doesn't belong in the game. "Support" tells me "...this notification cannot be turned off until the Mastery has been trained...", "...it is not possible for us...to relocate this notification nor is there a way in game for these to be changed..." And finally "...if you would like to request a change to how this notification appears, please reach out on the official Guild Wars 2 forums...". So here I am. Is there any way to allow the player to decide for themselves whether they should be constantly harassed about "Masteries"? If Anet has time to arbitrarily switch turning and strafing, why can't they do something about this? Any advice regarding this would be appreciated... 2 2 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
