People always ask for rewards for doing hard things.. What would be a good "hard thing" that you could see being added?

I kinda like the way 2007 runescape did it, where you had to do certain things before you could: craft armor, get certain shield skins, etc. Something cool would be to make people go through one fractal-sized dungeon by themselves, with maybe a few NPCs, and at the end, you had to do a puzzle or something, or kill a unique boss by yourself or something. Thoughts on challenging PvE content that could reward unique skins?

Changes to Nearest Target functionality post-patch

I've noticed since the patch, that Nearest Target functions differently.

I'm not sure what the community's opinion of this change is, so I'd like to inform you and see your reactions. I, personally, don't like the change.

Previously, Nearest Target used to target enemies nearest to you that were on screen. This would allow you to quickly prioritize immediate threats approaching you.

Currently, Nearest Target now targets enemies literally nearest to you regardless of if they are on screen or not. This means if you are looking directly at an enemy in front of you (with no other enemy on screen) and press Nearest Target, you can end up with a random target you can't see because there is another one standing behind you.

Trying to target the nearest goat I can see

End up targeting the nearest goat behind me

Next Target is the obvious alternative but it has prioritizing built into its function. So sometimes, when you want to attack the thing coming at you, instead you end up targeting the Champion behind it. Additionally, it allows you to toggle through enemies on screen. Which combined with Nearest Targeting can be effective for quick enemy selection.

I used to use Nearest Target to prioritize enemies in front of me and Next Target to prioritize Champions or change to another target. I can't use Nearest Target any more as it's unreliable for me.

If you could add a new weapon to guild wars, what would it be? Which professions could use it, and what kind of skills would each profession have?

See title.

I personally would love to see something like a greatshield. A massive two hand shield; just imagine a guardian hulking into battle with a giant shield. I think it would help to round out the defensive side of what we can wield along side the regular shield.

On guards, it would be primarily defensive; creating barriers that block projectiles, granting protection, maybe with a couple offensive/cc capabilities.

On warrior, I could see it being used for massive damage, but slow and bulky. Basically the reverse of the offense-defensive ratio found in guardians.

Thieves wouldn't use them, for obvious reasons.

I can't really see rangers having a use for greatshields, but maybe something for jumping around to your pet and helping it defensively rather than offensively; as most weapon skills that affect pets do.

Mesmers wouldn't use them for the same reason as thieves.

Necros would use the size of greatshields to rip holes in the curtain between life and death. I haven't given a whole lot of thought as to what comes through these rips, possibly minions or the spirits of the dead coming through in a short second wind where they could help allies and hinder foes.

Personally, I find the normal shield to just not be beefy enough for my liking. The greatshield just seems to fit, plus it would have major potential for looking super cool with skins and all that.

Idea for WvW UI Addition

With the addition of siege disablers, I was thinking it's annoying to have to open inventory every time I want to drop siege or a disabler.

Couldn't we have a siege equipment slot that creates an icon, much like an active skill? This would allow us to drop siege from the skill bar as long as we have the siege item (or a stack) equipped from inventory.

Thoughts?

Ever since I started playing I wanted to remake the separatists propaganda in Ebonhawke into a larger image because it just looked so cool! I finally got around to doing it so, here is a large version of it! Of course, all image rights go to arenanet and is certainly not designed by me. Just a remake of a screenshot!

The text in the Tyrian language says "No Peace With Beasts!" http://imgur.com/VC9vN2B

New Key Farming data Tips and Tricks

[ Sep 15, 2014, 6:18 pm ]
After a few tests and ideas here is somethings I've learn and now am doing. Like old key farms, Human, Commoner, Guard I used this cooking guide http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/2geiou.. Show More

After a few tests and ideas here is somethings I've learn and now am doing.

  • Like old key farms, Human, Commoner, Guard

  • I used this cooking guide http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/2geiou/gw2crafts_1200_cooking_guides_now_live_for/

  • You will also need: level 10 GS and Staff, Armor set, Rings and Accessories (food helps) Pick up all your gear here when cooking and equip all but Staff or GS once level 10.

  • Make sure to hotkey the pvp (Hearts of the Mists) I used "P" key.

  • Go to PvP (Hotm) via hotkey, place your 2nd weapon on the swap (you will now be able to weapon swap).

  • Use your Staff for Speed and might between fights as much as you can. (if this trick ends up being a bug then I will believe warrior GS will be slightly faster, will need some more testing).

After 8 keys, im averaging 27min runs.

8 Keys have given me:

  • 4 Black Lion Ticket Scraps

  • 1 Black Lion Claim Ticket

  • 4 Boosters

  • 2 Communal Boost Bonfires

  • Merchant Express

Pic of 28min Run > http://imgur.com/C1YQ3zU

Pic of 8 keys after opened > http://imgur.com/pxhUGYS

PS: Im not very good "yet" at posting these types of topics and screen caps, i will learn and get better as I do this more often.

Edit: I did it with warrior, GS and a Horn to put on for speed (NO pvp weapon swap trick) and was able to do it 27min.

I also got Flame Dye Kit and Lion's Arch Survivors Dye Kit in one key.

gw2crafts: 1-200 cooking guides now live for keyfarming runs

With Renown Heart items: http://www.gw2crafts.net/cooking_karma_fast_200.html

Without: http://www.gw2crafts.net/cooking_fast_200.html

Prices are about 1.4 and 1.9 gold respectively.

The whole intent of these guides is to get a new toon to 10 for key farming(and to show total price). Please let me know if you follow these guides and end at a level less than 10(or constantly over 10), if so I'll adjust another 25 points until it isn't possible to fail.

Also, from reading these boards, it looks like a few renown heart vendors have had their karma cooking ingredients changed. Please mention any changes here so I can update the guides. (EG Eda no longer selling apples in bulk).

The New Leveling

So, I killed off one of my characters(just got tired of the look and didn't want to sink gold/$ into TP), and made a new character the other day...after the patch.  Holy cow nuggets!  On the one hand, you do level faster in the beginning.  Hearts in the noob zone will give you half the XP you need to level.   On the other hand...everything else.  The PoI, skill points, 7-0 skills being strung out to level 40, offhand and skill options being hand-fed in increments...  



I can think of a few reasons they did this.  On the one hand, it is something someone with a business degree would think of doing.  On the other hand, for anyone who knows anything about MMOs, or games in general, it's cutting off your nose to spite your face.



One reason could be the China release.  They felt that either they had to prevent rampant key farming and other abuses some make in rotating through a new character every so often, because of the stereotype of Chinese gold farmers(patently racist); or, they felt the new Chinese needed things spelled out for them in the game(again, see before).



Another is just us.  Before, since elites are crap in this game, for the most part, you could, once you got 7-9 skills unlocked, join in on WvW/EotM and not be tits-on-a-bull, getting bags and wallets on the zerg train.  The new system kills that till at least level 35.  Maybe they just want us to really be invested in a new character, instead of whizzing through a personal story that has become fairly monotonous for those in the game for more than a year.  A better solution for that one: write a better damn story.



As everyone knows, to paraphrase Julie Andrews, the forums are alive...with the sound of anger.  Yesterday, someone asked in a thread on GW2 forums what they were doing post-patch.  Half said not playing GW2, and no one said they would buy any gems.  It may be a bit of hyperbole, but while this patch is not as severe, the last time I saw this kind of reaction on forums, was NGE, CU, and Monocle-Gate.  They can afford to piss people off now, with the Chinese release; but based on the many problems people have with this patch, unless their goal is just to be a traditional grinder MMO, they might want to listen. read more
