coso.9173 Posted July 28, 2019 Share Posted July 28, 2019 I know gw2 delivers story content by doing both expansions and living world episodes, and that's awesome, I've enjoyed every new episode we've got. My issue is that it usually takes very short time to complete these, compared to how often they are released, and then we're just left with grinding map events, map currencies, or achievements (which isn't bad in itself) but story wise, we have almost no side quests or anything else that helps the story move forward, or help decorate and define that story.This is beacuse GW2 doesn't have regular quests, like other MMOs or RPGs in general. the closest we have are map hearts, which are in fact some kind of sidequest, but each map has around 5 or so. so it really doesn't take a lot to do. Some collections also have some story quests in them, and I enjoy them, like the skyscale, or bettle mount for example. but many other collections are just item collecting without much else.Compared to other MMOs, like WoW or ESO, where each new area has probably 30+- quests. the whole area takes longer to finish. When I play ESO, each new map takes me a few days to complete, if I want to do all the side quests too. in GW2, doing the story and the hearts for a new map takes around 1-2 hours at most. and then only doing events, griding curency, and collections. Even if I consider map events as story content (which some of they are) it still doesn't take that long to do them.I know gw2 is diferent, and I don't WANT it to be like WoW or ESO or any other game in that aspect. But I wish there was more quests to do around each zone, where I feel I'm helping people, because doing story+events+hearts still can be done in a few hours, compared to 2-4 days I take to finish a map with all quests in ESO/WoW/random other MMO.I'd like to see your opinions on this. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
