Special Access Pass · Experience

Excelsior !

I just bought the captain's airship pass (yes I'm a VIP now) and I am bit disappointed. Why there are so many different VIP passes? The function of these VIP areas are nearly the same.
But enough of this negative criticism ^^

Actually I want to write down some suggestions to improve this area. An exclusive merchant would be nice for example.
And even if not - a fishmonger and the fishing supplies merchant should be to find there.

What do you think? What should be improved to make this areas more comfortable ?

I think there's multiple different passes and areas because different people have different priorities and preferences and it increases the chances everyone will find one which is worth the price for them. Some are themed around different activities like WvW, PvP, Fractals etc. they're all in different locations and have different styles and layouts. There's often discussions about which one is best, and it really depends on which features and aesthetics are important to you.

You can see a list comparing all of them here: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Lounge

I wouldn't want any merchants to be completely exclusive to the lounges, because then it goes from an optional convenience item to something you have to have to access that merchant. But many of them do have copies of specialist merchants and can be the most convenient way to access them.

Buy the Canthan one, if you can. It's the best one right now imo. I used to use the Lily of the Elon one (to fit the theme of my character, I also have Mistlock but that place is way too crowded for non-fractal use), but it's sickening to go back and fourth between floors for black lion outpost and the crafting station.

IMO, the only ones worth getting are loumges that allow you to get back to the exact location you were at before. Armistic, Mistlock and 1K Sea (only including those obtainable from Gem Store) are the only ones that offer those. Aside from the usual convenience of going back to same locations for specific events, they are great for alt farmers - those used for alt parkings especially at hard to get to places. Alt's bag is full or need some items, go to lounges to use the services and go right back.

I use Mistlock for Fractals and 1K Sea for everything else.

Personally, prefer the maxed-out (Mastery) Arborstone to any of those VIP zones.

Problem with Arborstone is the various services are too spread out, such as the crafting stations from the waypoint. Lounges offer fast access and convenience.

Although I have other Lounges, I still use Royal Terrace quite often, as everything is so close together. 

Me too. And so much happens in Divinity's Reach, it's a great pass to have. Since I got the 1000 Seas, I retired the Mistlock. It was always crowded and bothersome to find things.
