I agree, Braham and Marjory needs to be killed off the Group, it’s time we get some more interesting ‘heroes’ instead of these two boring numbnuts!
We need more drama, not rage-anger insults towards us (the commander) from Marjory and Braham.
I wish Braham was killed instead of Eir. Atleast she was alot more interesting character…
In fact, I would love to replace all of the ’Dragon’s Watch’ team. Specially Taimi, so kittening annoying! >_<’
I want Zojja, Logan, Caithe and Rytlock back in action.
lol Logan was the most useless waste of space team member ever, he spends more time knocked out than being useful in every story step he’s in and unlike braham and others never bothers to attempt to revive you despite being a guardian..
As for taimi she’s literally the best npc the game has for character and personality so i’m really unsure what you class as a good teammate as none of the ones you list were that good.
Commanders should take their expert leadership abilities to wvw and mentors should be tweaked to do the job commanders currently do in pve, also change the way commander tags are earned into a wvw thing since that was the original purpose for the tag(obviously refund everyone who bought the tag since that’s only fair).
Another option is rename mentor pact commander since you gain it from the mastery track of the same name….heck rename the commander tag to commnder of the mists to destinguish the two and give both the same abilities but restircted to their own areas and problem solved.
Also maybe restrict the ability to tag up in all maps to a later level pf pact commander mastery as it’s something worth working for if you really want to lead….this however would mean fixing the xp farms folks use to max masteries in tyria.

It’s not just verdant brink that’s not giving completion rewards, southsun, silverwastes and drytop are all not giving rewards yet have them to give….seems like the world completion folks like me are somehow locked out of map completion rewards on that character.
Ohh so that’s why i just got booted and now the game refuses to log back in again? i was stood in verdant brink when an event began….maybe i should pull my guardian out of HoT related maps until you fix them so they dont break the game all the time?
Assuming the game lets my log in again before your next patch that is…

umm sylvari are kinda the main focus race for this xpac so a meta achivement tied to that race makes sense as does one for norns when they do a pack for jormag and so on.
Just because you personally dont want to play as a sylvari doesnt mean the entire game should be changed to cater to your limited opinions….grow up.
I suspect it depends on how old your account is as accoutns that werent around/active during season 2’s release may need to purchase the complete season 2 pack where as active acounts during season 2 can still buy chapters for 200 gems each.
Cultural tier 1 isnt bad nor is tier 2, both are nicely priced as well for what will mostly be skins(the stats are abit poop), they both also look really good with the white wings backpack
I think they could do with shuffling the list abit and dropping the ones folks tend to ignore most(the one that involves playing the costume brawls and other minigames seems to never get done from what i can tell at least on my server), making them more of a challenge isnt the answer though but variety is needed and maybe slant things back towards pve abit more….also instead of fractals all the time why not just complete a dungeon? im sure many folks would prefer that instead since fractals seem infested by folks that dont like the more casual players these days.
Now we just need a Shiro Tagachi Outfit.
I suspect it’s in the works alongside sword skins…i’d be surprised if anet dont as both are such unique looks that it’d be silly not to.
Meh evil moses was kinda boring as a npc you were trained by type of character, tybalt and sieran had more personality in there pinkies than that grunting waste of space forgal showed the entire storyline section he existed.
I still get angry when risen taunt me about tybalt and sieran, i cant say ive batted an eyelid whenever forgal is mentioned in taunts he literally made that little impression.
It is a kitten pesky boss, and the minions invuln shields last way to long considering how short a timespan you get with your own most the time…i shall beat this boss next time though! the stupid shiny prat will rue the day it decided to be annoying lol
Personally though i think its less hard more frickin annoyingly put together really just as the previous two annoying bosses were more a case of figuring out what parts are important over just trying to kick kitten overall, well apart from the orbs of death in the ascalon boss fight…those were just put there to be evil
Shiro used twin katana not sword and dagger so maybe twin swords plau sword/dagger will be options? certainly sounds like a fun addition to the revenants already interesting set up.
Why only human? humans suck i wanted to make a sylvari revenant or a norn….weekend ruined! just joking lol
But seriously why restrict to just humans when eventually all races will be revenant’s, kinda limits the info you can gain before release(especially given the clipping issues certain races have with armor skins) if you restrict to just the easiest race to model guys.
maybe the eater will be tied into the expansion somehow, heck its could be less an eater and more a way to use that crap for more useful things than it currently is.
I must add though only get in touch if your based on PIkan Square or are interested in moving here as we’ve had a few people whisper about the guild where it later became apparent they weren’t based on that server nor did they wish to move to be with us
ATOM is more than a guild, it’s a state of mind
Seriously this guild is a helpfull, fun if slightly nutty family of cow obsessed adventurers
Oh and everything Sprout said above is true, we’re not out to recruit you to pad numbers or to brag about how awesome our huge guild is, there are no elite’s in the group(plenty of lvl 80’s but we all help out with anything needed).
If your interested in joining our happy bunch of reprobates and nere do well’s then as siad above feel free to send a /whisper to any of the members who (hopefully) wil be along soon add to the thread
Ps: oh one last thing, do you accept moosus cow as your lord and savior?
Been getting weird load issues randomly when it comes to player skins(lions arch was full of purplish red default skin wearing players and it seems to have carried over to random places since friday) and had a bunch of weird issues with my skillbars over the weekend, they were see through whenever i switched…never had these issues pre patch on friday so hoping they go away tmw with the major patch,
Im in the UK on Pikans Square and use talktalk if that helps.
He’s a disgrace of a guardian and far to smitten by the queen to be worthy of fighting Zaitan or any other dragon…
Also what FlammingFoxx said above
hopefully the third set begins soon as i could use an hatchet to go with my sickle and pick from set 1
hopefully the next chapter of the living story builds up to more ancient dragons and more chapters to personal story.

Been getting lag spikes and chatlog issues since sunday aswell, last night i had to send mail to party members as my entire chatlog crashed for aproximately 30 mins followed by a series of about 4 disconnects afterwards and strange lags or dlays in guild or party chatlogs in between each, the lagging began at roughly 6:30pm and got steadily worse untill i gave up at roughly 9pm.
Country: UK (derbyshire)
ISP: TalkTalk (Fibre)
Server: whiteside ridge
A few other guildmates have been suffering similar issues aswell lately but none seem to have had it as bad as my issues since sunday….yet.
Wrecked one last night and had a molten alliance group spawn and cause havok, kinda strange that they should be disbanded yet still pop up…then again dredge do the same thing so it’s not like theirs much difference beyond the fire attacks.
You know Southsun Cove could easily be cleared of its pest problem then turned into a nice little place for guildhalls and player housing….just throwing it out there
Same issue here: whiteside ridge guild name: The Neo Knights
An allied guild leader checked for me and he said everythign shows up on his end but theres no option to represent my guild which is strange.
On my side the guild exists yet im the only member and nothign else shows up(i breifly had the research item displayed but it vanished when i shifted maps).
Hoelbrak should also be renamed Norntropolis then to match the new zone name
Better question is why didnt they also add the tickets in as a reward for completion of the 2 instanced events aswell? kinda pointless adding new skins only to gate them behind stupid chests with no doubt stupid drop rates.
There also seems to be an issue with the guild bank being unavailable in certain cities post patch, kind of annoying when you have to go all the way to divinity just to take items out or put items into the guild bank because it claims we dont have one in lions arch and hoelbrak(havent checked the grove or rata sum yet).
Yeah call it Coat of Many Colours or something
More Dinosaurs especially in sparkfly type areas(i miss the t-rex types most).
More branded types, same for corrupted, more none risen creatures in and around orr (it gets abit boring constantly facing monsters only to find its the risen version).
what i’d like to see aswell is more creatures fighting over territory like you see with wolves and raptors(or heck raptors and anything they spot lol) in gendarren fields aswell as tweaked ai on others so they have unique hunting patterns and prey(colocal’s must have a reallly unique evolutionary reason for those stabby talons and a type of prey they’re perfectly suited to that would make their hunts fun to watch).

I’d be happy with smaller expansions similar to the one they added to gw which contained the 4 or 5 missions that filled in backstory and gave a unique weapons skin at the end as rewards….obviously this time though i’d prefer new zones instead of 4 or 5 missions but i’d be willing to bet we’re gonna get stuff eventually via living storylines and other means(imagine if the lost shores had been introduced in a living story and developed gradulally over a few months into a proper zone instead of the barren waste of time its become!).
Also I think kralkattorik should be the next big dragon we fight as it’d mean new types of branded to fight(giants and those gila monsters and stuff described in the novel). which would be a heck of alot more fun than fighting risen in orr all the time.
Justicar Works as a name better than Inquisitor though technically guardians do everythign a justicar would do if you look at the description so maybe not….not a bad idea though just needs abit more work and a new name.
Guild Wars is having a week long event where four leaf clovers and booze drops from mobs, its an annual thing in that game but other than that theres nothing else going on it would seem…kind of a pitty as i would have loved to get a leprechaun outfit for my asura or something from the gem store
GW also celebrates talk like a pirate day in september so hopefully given lions arch is run by them gw2 will celebrate this year.
Just change the name to bunny killer and the description to: “look at those dead eyes, you know it’s either kill it now or wait till it kills you and everyone you know!” and im sure most players would gladly murderize every kitten bunny they see “for the greater good”
Why not just make all 3 dragons spawn at the same time if random isnt possible? that’d thin out the herd of dragonsmackers somewhat as they’d have to constantly switch between the spawns(though some would probably just park different alts at each instead to save time).
Add me to the list of people who would prefer a similar system to the new dilay one be added to monthlies, it’d make them abit more fun and allow us to variate what we work on based on likelyhood of completion(since some people dont have alot of time or seem to leave the monthly abit late for whatever reason), this one is a kitten easy monthly though considering veteran slayer will pop up alot in the daily list over the month as will events.
I usually go aggro vet oakhearts or ettin for this one as both have easily avoided attacks that give you abit more time to roll away form than some monsters who’s timers seem abit fast(some insects and underwater creatures can be weird for dodges), sure its sometimes abit annoying to get but its not exactly a pain to do….after this update chances are you wont ever need to bother with it again so put up with it for 1 more day.
I’ve been up there myself(i took the wrong entrance into the area whilst lookign for the JP and thougth it was somehow up there lol) it’s really interesting and should probably be utilised for a future JP or vista’s at some point just for the amazing views(the asura npc should probably shut up though as he gets annoying).
I apologise for my initial post sounding abit angry but the revelation that my small 15(ish) man guild of dedicated if a little dis-organised social gamers would now have to stop saving influence towards unlocking our treasure trove and instead waste it on research into a tier none of us have any use for(seeing as only 2 members have even tried WvWvW for anything other than the required for capping of exploration reasons) came as a major kick in the gutts to me and has essentially blown any guild event based plans we had been working on to pieces before we even got to try them our.
Seriously why couldnt you have at least made the first one abit lower in the art of war tier? its not like it would affect anything were it lowered to say tier 2 or 3 would it?
I guess we’ll just have to change our plans to something else for now(no doubt dungeon runs or world events like temple runs or the dragon fights or something) and carry on with the treasure trove research plans in the hopes that the next batch of guild related upgrades arent so stupidly hard to unlock.

So in other words to do guild missions guilds need to have bothered to research things in a tree that untill now has been WvWvW focused and thus mostly ignored by none pvp oriented guilds? thats abit lame but i guess not unexpected…of course smaller guilds are shafted in favor of huge guilds by this since alot wont have lvl 3 let alone lvl 5 in anything ah well i guess we(my guild and other smaller ones) can go back to focusing on architecture lvl 4 and other lesser tech tree research instead and leave the guild missions to the bigger guilds untill you(arenanet) pull your heads out of your collective butts and realise not every guild is gonna be that far into the tech tree(and some wont even have started art of war since its been a waste of research to pve focused guilds until now) and offer something at lower tiers.
Ive found since making a sylvari that jumping puzzles are alot more fun than on my human, i havent done coddlers cover yet though i have tried it a few times and it has to be one of the more unique puzzle environments if only for the quaggans.
I missed out on trying the mad kings tower and the wintersday puzzles as i was busy exploring the world and didnt notice they existed till it was to kitten late
Im gonna go look for the hidden garden later though as it sounds like something i’d enjoy.
Go find some mundane animals like deer or wasps and use those as dodge practice and you’ll get it done in about 5 minutes tops…the benefit to this is that you wont suffer as much if you misstime a dodge unlike if you use aoe’s and such.
The reward you get in the mail is definitely something that will make the whole thing seem worthwhile in a big kitten hero kind of way(well it made me feel like one at any rate) and is definitely a nice touch to help make completion feel worthwhile.
Maybe they could use some of the looks/weapons for any future Cantha expansion content since as you said its abit too asian themed for the current game.
Pretty sure you can keep track of who puts stuff into the guildbank so if you really want to tax guildmates for being in your guild maybe pick a time/day of the week then get them all to pay a stipend into the guild coffers(instead of directly to you) and keep track of who did then you’ll have a way to moan at those who fialed to pay there dues without seeming like your pocketing cash from guildmates for illicit reasons(maybe you have a squabgrass addiction or something lol), obviously your gonna have to prevent players taking stuff from the trove etc during this time to prevent people later taking the cash back but hey its literally a couple of clicks so hardly hard to do.
Not exactly sure why you’d want to charge for the privaledge of being in your guild when others dont but hey your guild your rules.
I think the game needs more variety of content to do at all levels not just lvl 80, they’re working on it though so give it time and im sure we’ll be happy with what they add.
As for more dungeons and such well certain zones could use something along those lines but im against the huge party idea as the 5 man concept is fine as is, maybe add mini dungeons that dont require a 5 man squad aswell that way players exploring in duo or trio groups could tackle them without needing to bug people in /map or /guild(sometimes theres nobody on in your guild).
The rewards for storyline and taking down champions could use a tweak i agree but im sure eventually this like other issues will be dealt with.
Armour types i would like more of but not stat based additions just a bigger variety of skins(same for weapons) as i feel we have enough elitist fools ruining dungeons/fractals because of the current gear treadmill without needing to add more.
The only mounts i think would make the game more fun would be allowing asura rangers to ride their pets
Why not both idea’s? also throw in some sort of connection to your story path choice’s by having npc’s from the different paths you chose also feature(so say if you took the lost sister human option she features in the quests to some degree) thus making the choices we made early on actually have a meaning other than just being random crap we did before trehearne took over the story for us.
Nothing is stopping players from starting or moving to EU orUS servers though so its not like its a real issue beyond being a dumb idea in the first place(why newer mmorpg’s seem to love region based servers is a mystery when you realise older games like final fantasy 11 had no such restrictions).
Blue ice is a good white substitute on alot of armours, Redemption is a nice gold substitute aswell.
What they should add is a special one time event set post zaitan’s death where we finally get to clear orr of the leftover risenover a few days culminating in a big ancient karak type event that ends with a cutscen of a huge anti risen bombs being set off that clears all risen from orr so we can start rebuilding the place and maybe experience new challenges as other creature swarm in to claim areas formerly inhospitable to them because of risen(pretty sure the karka would set up shop on coastlines near to southsun for instance)….perhaps add this event just prior to the next expansion so we get some clear continuity.
Also perhaps shift storyline markers to areas less troublesome so peoplecan at least get to finish the story(or upto the crappy dungeon which shouldnt be part of the main sotry anyway imo).
The zone is frickin amazing looking apart from the fact everything except elementals is risen(why im not sure) though so i cant complain about that part and tbh i enjoy a challenge as much as anyone but orr is tediously repetitive not challenging which is the biggest issue the 3 zones have.
