[Suggestions]QoL (Quality of Life) Ideas [Merged]


Recommended Posts

With the addition of the crown markers for various collections, it would be nice if they appeared on the key on the key or something so they would flash if the mouse is over them to better see where they are actually on the map (similar to undiscovered POI, HP, Vista, WP).Bonus would be to update some of the previous collections to use these crown markers, so I don't have to look at the wiki for that info.

Account QoL gem purchases need to be account wide. I'm more than happy to support the game monetarily within reason but having to purchase bag slots for my alts is definitely mildly frustrating and fe

Be able to save dye configurations.

Again, can the awful Confused reaction (đŸ„ș) be removed permanently from the forum?   It brings NOTHING apart RUINING threads.

I don't think adding the markers to the overall map key would be practical, as they only show when you have a particular achievement activated. Once you complete the related achievement step, that location is really no longer valid.

I do agree it should be easier to see them. I suggest as an alternative solution to make them icons bigger like the x on the awakened assault events. I would also like to see them on the full map view.

I think there should be an LFG category for Guild activities.

For example, Guild Rush requires 15 complete runs in order for success, but guilds are starting them and then abandoning them, or just running them for personal credit. Small guilds, or any-size guilds with few people who want to do the events, are missing out here.

On a similar note, it would be nice to have an LFG tab for Guilds to recruit. I see many map chat messages from newer players who are looking for guilds to join, but a shout-out in map chat only speaks to people who are on that map at that moment.

Guild Wars 2 can really improve this aspect of "community" within the game with a very simple addition to LFG.

I'm sorry if this is a repeat request. So many pages of posts, so little time!

Expansion region based guild missions available via either level upgrades or perhaps a more open world oriented upgrade npc, like an Explorer/Cartographer NPC with upgrades related to LW/Expansion content. Could maybe offer either small benefits to those regions, or even those caches I mentioned in a previous post as an idea.

But to add onto the idea of the LW nodes to the guild hall as a synthesizer, maybe cost the map currencies in a modest bulk of each to get.

@WinterSolstice.7829 said:

  • More nodes/synthesizers to guild halls via upgrade. (Perhaps festival synthesizers, LW related synthesizers by the season)
  • guild hall upgrade for expansion caches named on their respective region for a daily surprise cache type earning (say Cache of the Heart of Maguuma goes at random between the map cache type like say Verdan't Brink's or Auric Basin's with their map currencies or recipes to show at typical rates. Maybe ones like Dragon Stand made uncommon, so it's overly farmed and rendering the map more empty for people needing to do their legendaries.)

Regarding extra build template slots

I know it hasn't landed yet, but I would like to suggest a compromise that I think is reasonable, for an issue that I will personally not be affected by at all.

I think that Anet should at least consider dynamic pricing for extra template slots, namely that (numbers are purely for illustration and completely modifiable)For eg (for extra slots only):1-6 extra slots: 300gems each7-12: 100 gems each13-24: 50 gems each

Personally, I am glad that there will be a hassle-free built-in template system - and from the sound of it, it's better than I tot it would be - and I am unlikely to need to buy additional slots, but it seems like there's a sizable number of players who need 24 slots per character or something... I do think it is reasonable to charge for extra slots (I honestly expected fewer default slots from a game company, though I certainly would not want that), and I do think it is very unreasonable (and shortsighted and foolish) to make that category of player fork out that kind of money - which no one in their right mind would. It is far more likely that a significant fraction of that group will be heavily turned off from gw2 completely, and I am guessing that this grp is integral to the communal player pool and knowledge base for their game modes. Especially since it sounds a lot like the ones most affected are those playing support classes (mesms, druids, guards).

1 last thing. I really hope that the recent wave of complaints (which have both merit and demerit) will not affect anet's ongoing partnership with current and future api partners (including delta).

That would be seriously disappointing.

Here is my feature QOL request.

I understand there is messaging limitations to stop gold spammers and the like.

But could we get a Self chat window. (Yes I want to talk to myself), this window has no limitations what so ever.The reason for this is I took a break from GW and now am working on some of the various things. so am pasting in Waypoint links.

Low and behold, "your message was suppressed.." I mean the map has gotten pretty large, Finding POIs or Waypoints can be pretty daunting, at times.

Let us talk to ourselves so we can look up these or port without being supressed

I have setup a chat tab for a solo/personal guild. It works well for pasting links and other items for me to reference while in the same game session.

I would really love your idea as a better alternative.

I would also like to see an option to dump chat to a file like the screen capture functionality, or set some chat content as pinned or accessible in some manner over time and across characters.

@Frostfang.5109 said:The ability to mark interesting places on the map, such as gathering sites etc...

I think this is a great idea and I second it! It is our own map so why not add something like a pin we can place down and attach a comment/note to the pin. That way the map stays clean and not cluttered by notes and words everywhere and this only appears when you hover over or click a pin.

since we get build templates i would like to be able to change the class anytime as well.

e.g. i play with guardian and if im bored with guardian i can just change to necromancer any time for free with template.

i would like that feature cause i dont want to replay all the story missions and maps just when i want to play another class and need to change the complete charakter for that.i want to be able to change the class and continue with the approach i already have.

players who want to have several charakters could just continue like they do now.

Another suggestion:

i want to be able to change the server from NA to Europe and back for free when it comes to PvE content.

Since playerbase is shrinking i think it makes sense to let players from NA and EU play pve together because alot players from EU are online during EU nighttime but hardly find ramdom other people to play fractals, story content, etc. so why not let players change the server for free regarding pve.

if someone want a server change for wvw still need to pay gems, as otherwise free change atm allows for match manipulation.

Can we please!!!!!! have an option to disable any cosmetic additions that comes with gear.For example:Rune of fireworks fires those nasty confity.Legendary trinkets are adding annoying bubbles.And plenty more.

All i really want is to see my character and it's gear, without any additional distracting things.

I would like to suggest/Request an inventory slot called Auto Consume, or something of the sort.What it would do is allow you to put a stack of food effects or similar items, and it would automatically use them for us. Keeping you always under the effect of boosters.

Edit.Also can I request a Banker in the Silverwastes, and a Trading Post in Claypool?

This an extremely popular request with a lot of different suggestions on implementation. However, the main thing if an auto consume of food/utility/boosters really should be added.

I am hoping it is one of the QoL things being worked on in the background for release soon.

How about giving us a reason to log in every day to begin with? I recently noticed that I was no longer getting achievement points after doing the daily. I looked into it and discovered that there is a cap at 15,000. Why? Look, I have a full time job and full time family, at the end of the day I like to log in, do the daily, check out the gem store and maybe do a few world bosses before bed. I was hoping to someday get the cool armor and also rack up points toward what ever rewards will be waiting for me in Guild Wars 3. I've been playing since beta and I'm pretty much done with this game. I have everything I want. Done every thing I want to do. World bosses and occasionally joining bounty trains on the weekends is all I do now. If I do the daily all I get is 2 gold and spirit shards? I have 5,751 spirit shards. What am I going to do with more gold? I spent 1500 gold on deathly pauldrons about a month ago just because I thought they would look cool on my Herald. The novelty wore off quickly. Not interested in a second job running around doing collection quests or trying to kill a mob within a certain time period or whatever else you guys can dream up just to get more achievement points. I noticed older players like me who were only logging on to do the daily have left the game or I see them on briefly every month or two. Maybe they made the same discovery I did and figured what's the point?

The only guild I'm on is my own, and It's only me in it. Haha. But I can see why you asked for it.

Please let toons have 12 bag slots instead of 10

I presume you mean to have 12 inventory bags? Because each bag also has slots, so I'm a little confused about this.I would say yes, increase the amount of both inventory capacity and the bags themselves.

Please change the number of bank tabs we can have to 20 or 25

Agree.

Please change the number of toons an account can have from 70 to 100

I don't think I'll ever have even 70, unless I get rich. But again, agree.

Please change the number of people who can be in a guild from 500 to 750

I'll skip this one. See above.

When we buy a skin from the trading post, we can use it on an item in our inventory, or add it to our account wardrobeIf we use it on an item, we don't need to buy a transmutation chargeIf we add it to our wardrobe, it disappears from our inventory, and we have to buy a transmutation charge later to use itPlease change it so it stays in our inventory but becomes account bound, or give us a free transmutation charge if you have to take it away from our inventory

100% agree. Everytime we get a skin for armour, weapons, etc... they should stay in our account wardrobe and free to apply.

In Heart of Thorns maps, our inventory tells us at the bottom how much map currency we havebut it doesn't tell us how many map keys we havePlease tell us that too

Agree.

When a guild becomes full, it kicks everyone from the roster's invite listPlease change this so they stay on the invite list, but can't join until the guild stops being full

When someone says no to a guild invite, the roster says they left the guildIt should say instead that they didn't want to join

Skip. Next.

Let us put runes and sigils into our bank's materials storage

Agree. There should be a section in bank materials for runes and sigils.

When we're swimming on top of water, we can't use any skills or gather plants growing in the waterWe can only do that when we're fully in the waterPlease change it

I agree, but I think I know why this wasn't implemented.If you're half way through the water, what do you use... land weapons or water weapons? See, that's the dilema, besides causing possible bugs.

Please give us a way to turn off idle animations for our toons, or choose which ones we want to happen

Agree... and Agree.I think there always should be some sort of movement though, so they don't look like statues.

I'll keep adding more here
