Oh, this thread, again. Yes, it would be nice if, when I'm trying to do map completion, I can see the usual map completion directions on the content guide instead of the completed heart I have no interest in re-doing. It would save me the trouble of constantly opening the map, disrupting what I’m doing, trying to find where my next map completion item is.

To clarify, the biggest challenge for map completion is making progress on unexplored territory in your current zone and adjacent zones. Unexplored territory in your current zone appears to be the second lowest priority item for the Content Guide, only beaten by unexplored territory in adjacent zones. It seems like a repeatable heart on the opposite side of your current map takes priority in the Content Guide over moving into unexplored territory relatively nearby. Being able to disable completed repeatable hearts in the Content Guide would go a long way towards improving quality-of-life for map explorers.

As a map explorer that never really stopped me so long as I have a map I can look at. The irony here is that the content guide won't show you stuff you haven't been in proximity to, unless its an unexplored section. That distinction is important, because map complete is centered around "icons", and the content guide doesn't point to icons you haven't encountered yet. Something I'm ok with, because it demands reading comprehension when you're supposedly "stuck/lost".

But then again I'm kind of old school........ be not a slave to the little dotted line.

It would be really helpful for me if a 'Salvage all salvage items' option could be added to the right-click menu on salvage kits. This would affect all the items in the Salvage Item category - the ones whose only purpose is to be salvaged or sold on the TP.

I always salvage them and I often do that first when sorting out my inventory because it's an easy way to clear some slots....except for the fact that I have to double click the salvage kit and then search through my inventory to find them. The alternative is to leave it until after I've sorted everything else out and I'm down to just equipment (and salvage items) I want to salvage (with anything I want to keep hidden in my invisible bag) because then I can use 'salvage all masterwork and below' which includes them. But then I lose the benefit of clearing the slots early in the process so it's easier to sort through what's left. It's sometimes preferable, especially when I have a lot of salvage items (like the 150 centaur hides I ended up with after doing the leather farm in Lake Doric for about 20 minutes while waiting for an event) but still annoying.

I don't know how easy it would be to make this change, but if it can be done without too much trouble it would be a big help for me.

(On a related note I've really appreciated the existing salvage kit options over the last week. I'm in the process of getting my main set up for raids and between trying to decide on a role and stats and making exotics to use in PvE in the interim I've had a lot of extra gear in my bags, including salvagable exotics and sellable ascended and I wasn't able to fit it all in my invisible bag, which is very unusual for me. So if I wasn't able to use right-click > Salvage all Rare/Masterwork and below I'm sure I would have accidentally salvaged something I needed while clicking through it all.)

That wouldn't be any good to me because I'd still have to hunt through all the drops in my inventory to identify the items I want to mark for salvage. My goal here is to add salvage items to the things I can clear out very quickly when I first open my inventory, so it's easier to sort through the remaining stuff which I don't always do the same thing with.

How would this work? Take a specific heavy chest piece for example, like a chain coat. The same item can have a wide variety of names, levels, stats, and runes. "Mighty chain coat," "Malign chain coat," etc. Wouldn't you have to mark each "version" as salvageable? Or are you only proposing certain items can be marked salvageable?

I think this was the reason some bags were created that are 'invisible'. This way, you can store the stuff you don't want affected in those bags and not worry about it. I'm not sure if it affects salvage though - they were set up to avoid selling things accidentally. Nevertheless, a better solution would be similarly to make the bags for those items you do NOT want to salvage. Then just salvage all and voila.

I think that the option to insta-salvage all blue and green items would be a wonderful addition to the game. As it will be an issue to have enough salvage kits it will likely have to be an upgrade for that copper machine that salvages stuff. Give that one an upgrade that you can instantly salvage blues and greens. Yellow and up I would keep out of that.

You can though, just right click on the salvage kite and choose blues or blues and greens, and it does them all. Or am I miss understanding something?

Well you have to click each individual one to salvage or are you about to reveal a big secret to me that I wish I'd known years ago?

Right-click your salvage tool for an option to mass salvage certain rarities.

I think I'm going to log into the game and then fall off my chair in amazement lol. In my defense I've only played this game sporadically but I had no idea this could be done.

Prepare to be amazed, pretty much every stackable consume type item now has a consume/use/salvage/whaever ALL. No more clicking thousands of luck or that silverwastes sand.

How often do you want to do anything but salvage gear that's of Fine quality? (blue) You could just start off with "Salvage all fine and below" (the top option) and then take up the loot-handling from there, actually looking at the Masterwork and better stuff.

I propose that we have to mark the items as salvageable in our inventory, then right-click our copper-fed to select 'Salvage all marked'. But somehow, that wouldn't fit the inventory's mouse-only mentality. Then again, in the same time it takes me to mark items for salvage, I could as well salvage them right away. Okay, salvage my idea =)

The annoying exceptions:

  • Tomes. If I have a stack of four (week four of the daily login cycle, for example), I have to use them separately.
  • Some types of RNG dye packs have Use All, and some do not, and I almost never want to use just one of the stack.

My suggestion (and I apologize if this has been brought up before - I did a search and didn't find a topic) is to create a "watch this item" button for all gem store items to allow players to receive notifications when the watched item goes on sale - or, in the case of seasonal/occasional items, the players will receive notifications when that item returns. I feel this simple suggestion could be mutually beneficial to both the player-base and Anet.

  • For the player, the benefit is obvious, they'd never miss the items they're looking out for in the gem store, either for a sale or for a recurring item to make a return. I'm speaking from experience in that I've missed several sales I've been waiting for, and have also missed the returns of several items I had been waiting for.
  • For Anet, they 1) get access to a mass player survey indicating the items they're most interested in, which can inform their future sale and gem store item release decisions, and 2) would gain the transactions of players (like me) who would have otherwise missed the items/sales and not purchased anything.

Of course, a financial analysis would need to be performed on the advantage of putting a popular item up on sale (and having more players purchase it at the cheaper price) versus leaving it at a higher price (and having fewer players purchase it, but at the higher price).

This would be great. 'Nuff said.

Let me remind you though, aside from GW2timer.com there's a gem store-related pinned topic on the front page, where new and returning sales are updated every patch day (or whenever something comes up for sale). Usually there are imgur/youtube links to new skins/mounts/gliders as well. You can check the new goodies there without opening the game client, and works on mobile too. Of course, it's nowhere near as sophisticated as your suggestion, but creating a shortcut or a bookmark and making a habit of checking that every day will ensure you'll never miss a sale.
