Make visible change in icon of Gift of Craftsmanship and Gift of Battle


Recommended Posts

I was working on making Legendary Raid armor(and Legendary PvP armor as well) for a very long time. Finally, I had all collections/materials done/collected for getting the Legendary armor and I went to Mystic Forge to bring the hunt to closure. To my surprise, when I forged Gift of Prosperity(https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gift_of_Prosperity), it actually came out to be Gift of War Prosperity(https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gift_of_War_Prosperity).

What actually has happened is that I had one Gift of Battle in my inventory from sometime back, and when I went to forge the Gift of Prosperity, I had selected Gift of Battle in place of Gift of Craftsmanship, as both of them look EXACTLY the same. Recipe of Gift of Prosperity and Gift of War Prosperity is exactly the same, except these two items. My inventory had so many random unorganized items that I could not see/realize that there are two items sharing the same look. All those hard efforts on getting the Gift of Battle and all that gold collected for Mystic Clovers, Condensed Gift of Might and Magic are lost in vain.

I tried to contact support, but they said these kinds of changes are not possible to revert. (Name is hidden as I am not sure if I should reveal the name or not)

Hey there,

Thank you for reaching back out.Guild Wars 2 Support Team is not always able to commit to reversing mistakes, which is the case in this situation.While we apologize for not being able to help this time, if there's anything else we may be able to help you with, please don't hesitate to get back in touch. We're always here to help our valued players, such as yourself, with whatever issues you may face.Regards,GM ****Guild Wars 2 Support Teamhttp://help.guildwars2.com/

I was not working nor planning on crafting WvW Legendary armor at all, and hence the Gift of War Prosperity is completely useless to me now.If these kinds of transactions cannot be reverted and involve items that require a huge amount of time and effort to get, it is not feasible to give items exact same icons.Even the GW2 Wiki page uses the same image URL link for both these gifts:Gift of Battle: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gift_of_BattleGift of Craftmanship: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gift_of_Craftsmanship

They really should have different icons. I've mixed these up before - not during a craft, like you, but certainly while managing inventory. And it was confusing when I was first learning how to craft legendaries. They have complicated recipes with unfamiliar names, and it took months before I realized Gifts of Battle and Gifts of Craftsmanship were different things because their icons show up in similar use cases.
