[Column] Guild Wars 2: What I Want for Wintersday

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,659MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

As ArenaNet gets ready to kick off the first-ever Guild Wars 2 Wintersday event, we pause to check out what we do know and consider the things we hope to see. Check out what we have to say before adding what YOU want for Wintersday in the comments.

The first thing on my Wintersday list is of course a quest line.  ArenaNet kept the tradition of having a quest line tell the story of Halloween in the last holiday event, so this will probably happen.  But What I really want is for the quest line to end with a neat item just like the Halloween quests did.  Another back item wouldn’t be terrible; perhaps an endless transformation tonic? I don’t care, give me goodies!

    I want:   - dungeon finder tool

    - mounts including sharks! That right underwater mounts

    - player housing

    - mini games specific to major cities giving a reason to populate all cities would be nice

    - a different type of raid, by this I mean a large organised group activity but break the raid mold

    - surfing!

    There already is a LFG tool (under friends list - use it)  - no mounts

    Player housing - MEH - there is enough stuff to waste gold on in the game without that.

    Raids - NO!

     

    For me more variety in PvP (like more arenas, etc), GvG, Guild Halls.

    You might be waiting a while then, because there aren't any plans for mounts, let alone underwater ones, and since GW2 has no raids to begin with maybe this isn't the game for you.  Or maybe you were just being sarcastic.....

    That's easy if you bought the game direct from ArenaNet. I managed to get mine back after levelling to eighty and three months play, not a bad deal.

    Player Housing I can see possible, I agree with more variety in PVP.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    Yeah I got refunded too, bought direct as well.

    Even though I don't play, I want them to change the name from Wintersday to Christmas event.

    I don't really consider lfg search a dungeon finder tool... Imo

    I want:

    - loot levels to be restored to what they were at launch and not this garbage heep we have now

    - real balance otherwise they can rename this game Guild Warriors 2

    - horizontal progression for ascended gear to be focused on the real crafting of this game and not the mystic toilet

    - engineer pve class to be completely fixed by the end of the month. (seriously they've had three months to fix this class) which includes but isn't limited to the restoration of cond damage, tab targeting for #1 grenades, and faster cast times for grenades, bombs, and pistols.

    - I want them to make a way for the people that played a bunch then got a refund, to never be able to play again so they don't have to waste efforts on refunds if an expansion comes out.

    - I want a VIP forum, where you have to be a active, participating player to be allowed to post, so people can discuss the state of the game and offer recommendations.

    - I want the cash shop to have some new clothes.

    - I want holiday skins for armors

    - I want a new dragon arena

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I agree 100%.

    Though to be honest, when it comes to the refund, it was Anet's fault for doing it in the first place. Can't blame the player when the developers are willing to give back their money so easily.

    I just want to be able to use my town clothes during combat. Come on Lord of the Rings Online lets me do that and it came out in 2007.

    How about an event that actually works and doesn't exclude a particular time zone (like AUS)?

    Slippery-slide-y jumping puzzle for Wintersday. OH!!! I can hear the QQ now... mostly from me.
  • TekaelonTekaelon Brookhaven, MSPosts: 532Member Uncommon
    GvG would be a great addition. I could care less about player housing, give me guild halls.

    I would also love to see people who no longer play the game stop posting on these threads. Go troll some other game.

    Redo WvW, the current system is boring.

    I'll second that request, I'm in Australia as well!

     

    Secondly, Make it possible to solo play the game, there are less and less players all the time, eventually those that remain will also give up because the game is not playable for players that can't find other players! A lvl 80 char being killed by a lvl 20 monster is pathetic and the bosses are not even worth considering solo, I don't want to spend half an hour or more running around trying to kill the unkillable!

    Tixx is actually  Ticks a insane parastic asura that uses his floating toy factory/dungeon to lure children in so he can capture and feed off a few, giving Ticks eternal life while draining his vistoms till they transform into mummified tin soldiers or rag dolls to be used to lure yet more unsuspecting victom into his lair. Ticks autonom robot is actually a demon lord that ticks sold his soul too....

      Ah now this holiday event should fool a feel, wait what do you mean that events for a different holiday?! Ah well you have to admit my versions alot more interesting then what arena net will deliver. Hohoho the same old candy canes and junk every other mmo will be having this year. (well except maybe TSW)

    What I want for Wintersday??

    A huge guild instance with room for private housing galore. This instance (underworld and all) would first have to be cleared of brutally tough mobs and encounters and built up from there.Different styles sizes and shapes of housing, keeps, halls, towers and shoppes would be available for construction.This huge instance should then be able to attach to other guilds huge instances for wars and commerce.  There could be monster incursions in these huge guild instances. Allies could come help repel and opponents might seize the opportunity to strike. Aye I'd raise a tankard and drink to that on Wintersday.

    Happy Wintersday Everyone !!

    P.S. and a reason to do commerce.

     

    ( Note to self-Don't say anything bad about Drizzt.)

    An acerbic sense of humor is NOT allowed here.

     The *world bosses are not supose to be killed solo.....if that would be the case this game would become soo boring because nothing else would even stand chance of beating you and you would just steamroll all other mobs in game....so imho BORING.

    I want challenges (single- and multiplayer ones).

    * with world bosses i dont mean the dragons but the bosses who have the crossed swords icon on their name.

    I'll take just about anything that helps me care about the game again, because I'm just about ready to uninstall for good, otherwise.

     

    On second thought, course, that's not going to happen.  Think I'm done with this genre.

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    That's kind of like going to a movie...not liking it and getting your money back...it just seems wrong.
