“End the war on Armor and bring forth the era of Outfits”
Sorry this would be a game breaker for me. If I can’t be the character I want to play, why play an MMOrpg. Know with that said I would not mind if for new races A net did not add the armor from GW2 vanilla or we can have dungeon armor but not anything else from base that would be acceptable

…don’t get me started on the rabbit
We’ll call it “Violent thrusting”. I want that on my Asura Warrior.
Dude was going to call it Charr Taco Tuesday with Asura experimental rocket beans
As for the Tengu, I’m not really sure they will be playable. However, I do think the painted “fog” over their city has somewhat changed since the last time I looked at it. I do think they will play a role at some point and that we get to visit their city.
I fear Cantha might not happen. As far as I know, it was originally planned that you didn’t pick street rat, commoner or noble in the human character creation, but your lineage from Cantha, Elona or Kryta. But the guys at NC Soft didn’t like that and so Arenanet had to scrap it, along with the Canthan district in Divinity’s Reach, which became the great collapse and later the queens pavillion.
We also have to consider all the points in the NPC dialogue that would conflict with the Tengu suddenly becoming a part of the fight against the dragons. For example in the Zhaitan-arc there is this Tengu blacksmith that mentions how his race wouldn’t join the fight against the dragon.
If the Tengu would join in as a playable race, all the story so far has to be sifted for eventual mentions of the Tengu, possibly the same VAs have to be hired to record new dialogue and everything has to be patched into the game.
Either that, or they would need completely new story arcs where they act from the shadows during the fight with zhaitan and mordremoth.
Another option would be: Tengu can’t play all the content so far the same way the other races do. They have to use some kind of asuran device to revisit/play “simulations” of the events as one of the other races.
Well, the new business model is that going forward, like GW1, each map is a slice of time that is frozen like that forever after release. So, going by this model, if the Tengu were introduced in a future expansion they would not be particpiating retroactively in content, they would just have a unique personal pre-story that would then pick up as they join the fight against the enemy of that expansion.
This means they wouldn’t be the “Pact Commander” for example in open world, they would just be some Tengu adventurer wandering Central Tyria maps.
If they want to go back and play the normal personal story, they could do it by purchasing a package from the gemstore that would allow them to experience the past with their character details filled in using some generic data- but of course, seeing their own character model and name on dialogs. Basically, the PS would be introduced to them the same way LS2 and LS3 are to other races.
Yes, I know this wasn’t done with Revenant, when it should’ve been. Hopefully ArenaNet has learned from that past mistake with the massive holes in the lore that it created to have Revenants fighting against Zhaitan in personal story.
Agreed since A net dropped the “living world” to living story back in the day they can easily add content without stress of running over past story lines and arks… I miss the lw concept it’s what got me interested in the game
O please do this ….. For myself I would have many laugh of random people floating in air look like there ridding and invisible horse fly high speed and don’t get me started on the rabbit
sunSPEARS SPEARmarshal you think there would put a Spear in there aye….. like the staff hey it’s a pole let add the dagger onto it and BOOM goes the Dynamite and we got a SPEAR idk it just don’t seem right that there no SPEAR in a collection that named spear
New guild UI features, new Merchant, NPCs uncover hidden really hard to get to places in original guild halls, smaller guild halls for small guilds, Gig, Alliances the last can go on
There Samurai like culture that treat there bows as a the Samurai Katana, There architecture resembles India old architecture, There giant bird like race which not many MMOs have not done before to my knowledge…
I would like to see more original none animal or rl pantheon race like the Asura, I thought they was a good take on classic d&d/eq gnomes.
Race would be nice but it is simply cosmetic (racial skills are a joke) and flavour.
This statement I disagree on, Let me ask you this let’s say someone came in and changed the look of your top three favorite characters all the way down to what race and sex they are. Would you care or would you shrug it off and say it’s just cosmetic.
For myself I would deeply care as I spent allot of time, thought and work to have my characters look, play and act the way they do. To me my characters are a small part of me or more of my imagination.
If we did not care about what things look like then why do people invest time, work and money in video game with graphics then rather play a mud or a text base RPG, FPS, RTS and so on?
And a new race just not mean a new cosmetics but also new lore, culture, villiens, playable areas, themed armor, areas, view of the world and current story.
Have you ever seen any Tengu in Elona? … no? Me neither.
This is why I said Cantha themed Expansion
Did you not see the 500pages or something like that of people saying no mounts to game everyone it been requested since the game launched?
The Soulbeast skill and stances look eeeeh like there no flavor beyond standard GW2 look. Also is it just me but all the other specializations have a PoF theme and loom to them? Give us some green flames or something…
I hope to the spirits that we get a looking for guild panel and allot more guild UI like mass mail in PoF
People said mounts was not even to happen then BOOM here they are, even though I don’t care if mounts in the game or out unless they go FFIX route with having a hand full of iconic with appropriate lore mounts that you can change colors paletes, add armor, fight in combat with and breed I’ll be interested in. But if they go hey new content here 10 new random no lore, no customization, no attachments aka " collectors mounts" then I don’t give a care
But back on topic
I will never let it go if I pay money for something then I have the right in a free market country to suggest for a feature.
I was really hoping for Tengu playable race but I guess I’ll wait Cantha themed expansion.
I know there people out there like me that want new playable races and I know there people that don’t want them. For myself a new race means new lore / culture lore a new character since I don’t like to create more then one character per race and i can finally create my Tangu Thief that I create allot of back story, class build concept on
So yeah Tengu
I’m ok with it since I refuse to buy outfits until allot more high quality armor comes out
OP THANK YOU!!! this is one of the reasons I kinda stop playing “Note not the reason but a small part of the reason” I’m sorry the last 3 or 5 outfits is kittens for not being armor I mean there just simple suites, I thought outfits would be just that outfits, not outfits that look like armor that we should mix and match… as a player a big thing is having characters that act, look and play how I want them too.
Another thing all the MMOs I played in the past made armor sets without a problem but Anet is acting like making armor sets is a new thing and that it takes up five departments with 10 people per department with 12months just to make up 1 piece of armor, I’m sorry but in history of MMORPGs I have never heard of this problem before and I been playing MMOs since 1999 with the og eq, I just don’t understand how a successful with a flawless beginning game like this in an Industry That has a standard character customization would have problems creating armor set.

as the title say i open the launcher and my mac crashes will we ever get any fixes for mac problems i use to run this game on pc but at this moment i cant have a pc
I feel that guilds feature need some quality of life updates, I’m running a small, casual, social themed guild with 3 active members. We tried recruiting outside the game since there no real mechanic or feature in the game for guild recruitment outside of just shouting. this is something that I feel that should have been put in the game a long time ago and feels like it should be a mmorpg industry-standard feature. Another QoL feature that I would love to be in the game is a calendar so members can see upcoming events and a voting system so members can vote on what type of events they want to do.
so those are some of my ideas what type of Guild QoL Features you guys want?
I really think they should bring back Dragon Bash and Festival of the Four Winds back to guild wars 2, these two events was unique to the GW2 universe all I would love to see more festive events at least one for each race.
for all those new player that never seen the DB and FotFW events here some videos and wiki links
i could ask for a golem prosthetic right arm since he lost his arm when he was a teen and went up against a destroyer to prove he to his asura father that his father work is important. Or give us gravity controlling great hammer a weapon my Norn took many years to create to prove he not a bookah to other asura students. but hey i like to start small and work my way up
my engineer comes from the future but i see no futuristic armor any time soon.
wait i thought asuras armor is futuristic? i mean can we get some pictures to understand how futuristic you want to go?
Im not a big fan that Taimi’s Outfit is a outfit not armor skin like the last DE.2 armor skins i was soooooo stoked to see Taimi’s new armor and was like i cant wait to do mix and match with it, i have a Norn character that was raised by an asura and i cant find any good asura armor to mix with norn cult armor.
So what you guys think
So on of the biggest thing guild wars lacks for the longest time is good rewards like armor or armor skins. Since HoT it feels like we was given a hand of full armor sets this seams like its under the standard to other mmorpg expansion armor reward.
So my thoughts on a solution to this problem is every living story gives three themed armor skin sets and each chapter gives a piece of the set like chapter 01 gives gloves, chapter 02 pants and so at the end of the season we would have 3 armor set per armor waight then ther gender and race.
I think this would improve people doing content and have something to work for short term progression.
here a few things that sets apart Norns from Humans that i can tell
Body Structure: Norn body is more top heavy then humans with what to seems condensed muscles, because of the size of a Norn and weight of it body you would think there bones are more thicker and condensed then a human.
The Norn can handle extreme cold weather without allot of protection this make me think they have a higher body temperature then a human, this make me question how can a Norn stand being in hot weather.
Ok here the hair styles i was trying to submit earlier
I have allot of hairstyle images on hard drive but i can’t add more then one per post
i see im not the only person that dislikes the new hair choices over all, for myself i main a Norn and a big fan of the race because the concept is base off of Norse culture and lore with a light influence with Native American, Mongolian and Samoan culture. The problem is that almost all the hairstyles for Norn male and female don’t portray the concept of the culture of the race there way to much human culture hairstyles to choose from.
So i would like the devs to dig deep into the google to look up Nordic, Native American, Mongolian and Samoan haircuts to base concept off of.
it will take me time to find the video for the reference, but hey 40actors per line and 1,500 lines could be just a start.
so with this little tidbit of info about voice changes https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/meet-the-new-voice-of-the-male-charr-player-character/ and with including this information that given
“with localized text and voice-over, and we do final testing of all that. To give a sense of the scope of this process, this update has about 1,500 distinct lines of new voice dialog, each of which must be recorded, integrated, and tested in each supported language. For the player character’s voice, we separately record each race/sex combination in each language, so that means 40 actors for each line.”
and if i remember that when heart of thorns was announced John Collins said that one of the features of the new expansion will be the ability for the player to change the voice of there characters. So my questions are, is this one of the features coming into the next LSs3 update and if not is its still on the table?
Also what do the player base think?
it would be nice if it worked like how mac dictation work hit a hot key twice to use voice to text feature and then hit that hotkey to stop.
I would love a feature in game that takes what i say and put in into text for chat, i have a dyslexia more with weighting then reading and i would find this feature helpful. even though my dyslexia is not as bad as when i was a teen it still a problem especially when trying to type fast in conversations which happens allot since i love to rp…. MMOrping is one of the things that helped me allot growing up and working on this problem.
i fixed my first problem it was something to with my settings my second problem is that i can’t rotate an object with the right mouse button
Im having problems with placing decorations every time i go to place a piece of furniture the game just place the item without the preview so the decoration randomly places without me controlling wear and what direction i want to place it… when i want to wipe the decoration the wipe green rings are not showing up.
note I’m running on a mac
The lack of hats skins per armor weight truly bothering and something that needs to be fixed in the future.
i love Hats over Helm with all weight classes and there allot of different hats from many periods of history to add to the game like
Tricorn Hat = only one we have is for pirate armor set for mid classes i want one for light and heavy armor.
this video could help with different styles of Tricorn hats https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLqUrmYBKsc
and so on
what you guys think
I have been seeing allot of post about how HOT is to hard to solo and so on.
another thing i see is that allot of players stand in place to fight in HOT like the combat of old MMOs of the years past.
I main a Norn LB – S/A Ranger with a Owl / Smoke pets and I’m a casual player, one thing learned over the years of playing GW2 is never stand in one place and just spam buttons skills like WOW, EQ, FF game back in the day to kill target. My W,A,S,D letters are faded so much on my old keyboard since i never stop moving in combat unless a skill requires me to stand in place, Allot of PvE’rs going to hate me but you got to treat PvE combat like PvP in HoT since the beasties have higher HP and allot more punch in there attacks. only map i have a problem soloing is Dragon Stand but that not a problem since i love this map for its group content theme.
am i the only person that like vertical maps…. i mean for years and years in MMOrpgs we had plain flat maps there boring after you play them 100times, i think the main problem is that allot of people are bad at exploring and remember locations, i have seen allot of player video of people exploring guild hall and new maps and get all turned around but some how they end up at the same place but act like its a brand new place……
As a person that is half African American and German American I don’t understand why a character should be put on a pedestal because of their sexuality or nationality a good character should be based on their substance like the feeling in her flaws of their personality. For me I do not give a care that there is no African American looking character in the main cast I rather have good backstory then just a character with a dark skin color
CBomb: Then why did it suck and how did it get to the point of sucking?
you have a thought on the subject please tell us thanks
LegAcy: Asking and Needing are two different things
mauried: I think we can make the argument for wow expansion vs gw2 expansion if you look at the numbers year 1 gw2 did better then wow year 1 in sells. its only after time for wow to grow and became a power house that it is know it was not a overnight process. really you can look at all Fantasy base MMOrpg as reference since MMOrpg is the subject not the payment method.
Illconceived Was Na: i there allot of ways one can pay for content without and expansion like DLC works as beginning of the living story that gives you the set up for next living story with maps and including new elite classes and races…. Like Hot 4PVE maps and the druid, daredevil and so on. including gemstone items like furniture, Outfits and so on.
Ardenwolfe: I Agree with you but not lets start doing finger pointing blame game, the past is the past we can’t change it but lets move forward and keep it civil and respectful.
to my understanding you can’kittens a none-profit craft thats one of the big problems for the scribe it cost to much to level but you get hardly any cash back
So HoT has been out for some time and i think we all have at least played a good half of it. on my own personnel thought is that even though there was allot of good content and good ideas in HoT allot of the content feels half baked and allot of ingredients was left in a manner of speaking. On the other hand living story season two was great story, content and more Anet showed us a glimpse of what they can do and whats in-store for the future of GW2. If you look back season one living story/world and compare it to season two you can tell that Anet was stepping up there game to give use rich, fulfilling, fun content and story.
So my question could Anet achieve the same amount of content that was given in HoT and put it in through living story/world and player base would be pleased if not even more then HoT gave us?
I say yes
even though the content would be spread out but that means we would not have as much dead time as we do know. I also think the story would be much more then it was know
“The pact was destroyed and we have six episodes of finding our friends why the people we should be commanding and trying to put back together are just like you guy stay here why i look for this one person… Solder: O what happens if we die…. Me: Not my problem…. Solder: so you are telling me if we all die and the elder dragon spread through out tyria it’s not your problem… Me: Yep… Solder: did we vote on this guy to be the second in command of the Pact”
Sorry about that
so what you guy and girls think?
So it going to seems like in the future we going to have more outfits then armor…. the sad thing is some of the outfits that been added lately looks like they can be made into armor easily. i understand its harder to make armor then it is to make outfits but at some point you going to have to make high quality armor skins.
It took me by surprise that Hardly anybody ask any questions about lore and story in the last AMA since we had quite the lack of lore and story in HOT.
So i say why not just ask the questions here and hope the devs see and answers them..
Ill ask my questions after i get off from work
i hope there will be more then just raid content in the March 8th update… at the moment there really nothing for me to do in game, im not a type of of gamer that likes repeating the same thing over agian im an explorer type player who like to see new things.
At the momenr i only log in for about 10min a day to say hi to guildmates and then log off. Well i guess there good things for the lack of new content in this game im starting to put down the ground work for my video editing freelance busines. Also i been playing allot of ark survival evolved…. omg this game
But for the life of this game add some story and lore base content, and the ground work for wvw.
One thing that kinda bothering me is there’s not that many hair accessories for male character. The only male race that have hair accessories of abundance is the Charr for the rest of us not so much.
What i would like to see:
Norn: Rope breaded in the hair, Animal skulls and feathers, Crystals beads and rings.
Asura: Tech kinda like female have
Human: You have a whole world and many cultures to get ideas off of, get aspirated
Sylvs: IDK since they live so close to Asura they can get some cool looking tech hair accessory
How do you all feel about male hair styles in game and what would you like to see
So i just drop some cash down on a new mac book pro….. note i was never really mac user and only used macs in college but since i just started my own VFX/CGI business i needef to buy a mac.
But there a few problem with GW2 on a mac more towards the magic mouse the fly wheel scanner thing doesn’t zoom in and out and right click and hold dont control my camera…… also it just dont feel as smooth as using a pc mouse.
Aloha all so i been thinking on how to give a ranger elite a gun i understand the problem that have been stated on the for before about rangers using firearms. Also to make not of im 100% a bow/GS ranger i just was world crafting for fun.
So i been watching one of my favorite childhood animes Outlaw Star and there a gun that the main character use called a Caster, this gun uses different types of magic imbued shells.
source on Caster guns
So i was thinking why cant we use this type of concept for a gunslinger ranger type of elite. My concept is that the ranger makes his or hers own bullets out of wooden dowels and enchant them with nature mana. we need a short range combat crowd control elite and i think duel wielding pistol ranger would be great for that.
well that’s my idea what you guys think
