  • AlexWeekesAlexWeekes Member Posts: 57

    We're currently expecting the first expansion for Guild Wars to be released in the first half of 2006, with subsequent expansions every 6 months.

    If you are a represenatative for NCSoft can you send proof to Admin and then he can provide you with a different account.

    People who have to create conspiracy and hate threads to further a cause lacks in intellectual comprehension of diversity.

    I've heard some information (rumors) about possible Spectate and Recording modes for battles. Would really make the game more exciting, being able to watch the top guilds go at it.

  • yourmom12192yourmom12192 Member Posts: 221
    Damnet, i was really hoping there would be a larger selection of characters.    I have a question though, does anyone no if an expansion might let us swim, use transportation (like animals, ships, etc). Thanksimage
  • noob-gamernoob-gamer Member Posts: 81

    come on someone must have heard something they can piont to that has some info. about the expansion if you do please put that down here

     

  • 8hammer88hammer8 Member Posts: 1,812

    Go to the Guildwars.com site and there is a link to a GameSpot interview that discusses a little bit about the upcoming chapter. No "juicy" information, but information none-the-less. As for my two cents...I would never really expect any sort of animal transportation. There is no real need for it. There are not vast open areas to ride around, or needs for birds as transportation. You can get to whereever you need to by openning up your map and clicking. Much less time consuming. New classes and skills will come which I think is exciting. Talk about speculation...what kind of new skills, how will they effect the other classes? All I know is I am going to be there for the new chapters and all the free updates along the way.

    Remember....it's just a game::::28::

  • noob-gamernoob-gamer Member Posts: 81
    i guess a major question i have is with the new charactors will they be able to skip the original game and get ibto the new stuff
  • AwareAware Member Posts: 60

    Well, you guys are jumping to soon, as far as I know, no one here has a clue whats going to be in the devs have a little bit of a clue ;).. The transport on animals, would ruin the game, think about all the running that would go on, everyone would be level 1 at Drok, and the desert. Also I read it was coming out early 2006...

    1) There will be new professions. We have not yet released any information about them.

    2) New races ... possible, but not confirmed. You'll just have to wait to find out. It's certainly something that we know a lot of players would like to see.

    3) LOTS of new content. Lots of very exciting new content. Great new environments, storyline, and much, much more.

    We already know that they are working on spectator mode. They haven't said anything about being able to record those matches aside from using third party programs.

    Ideas for Chapter 2 into one summary. from GWG - http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84455



    Firstly:Professions

    I think they said they're gonna put in three new professions. So, we've got

    These are the main ideas I've read recently. We've already got the assassin, meaning that only two of these have the potential to fit in. Well, vote if you want!

    Although it has already been confirmed, go to this thread to contribute ideas for the assassin.

    Guild stuff
    • guild storage in guild halls
    • more stuff in guild halls- possibly various types of NPCs
    • guild hall upgrades that cost money and upkeep fees
    • Inside guild hall, social area bar/lounge, decorations, recreation, mini-games, guild pets etc. possibly guild village.
    • perhaps 1v1 arena
    • or training arena
    • guild alliances - click here
    • Merging guilds - see short thread here
    • (or) uniting under an umbrella guild - click here
    • PvE guild challenges
    • TheHandofDeath's idea for land ownership? click here
    • Priest of Balthazar in Guild Hall
    • Neighbouring guild hall islands - perhaps would link in with the guild alliance thing, you could choose neighbours and could be invited over and go by bridge etc.
    Click here for link on guild hall upgrades/recreation
    Click here for a link on some guild stuff
    Click here and here for links about guild hall NPCs.
    Click here for link on guild hall pets

    PvP Stuff
    • Ability to save builds - for PvP and PvE characters
    • Bigger arenas with more people?
    • Some change in the rank and fame system
    • Controlled arenas to fight against friends
    • Edit option for already created PvP characters
    • Money rewards for faction?
    • More arenas - click here for my idea on The Colosseum
    • See another idea for Colosseum here also. click here
    • More game types (capture the flag, king of the hill etc?)
    • Special condition arenas?
    • - Slade xTekno's idea for the Glint Facet Arenas in Dragons lair. click here
    • PvPvE battles - see actionjack's idea here
    • 1v1 (*screams as the angry mob smash him against the wall*) - the most official and discussion-filled thread on this click here
    Some general stuff
    • More character slots
    • More storage
    • PvE and PvP only stuff? :S
    • Day/night cycle - click here for a thread on this
    • Pubs/bars like WoW for socialising in cities
    • Option to change hair colour and style in game. Perhaps even, fattening/slimming, tanning etc.
    • Safe name changing system - click here for a thread where you can support the addition of name-changing feature
    • Some kind of SAFE boot player system. click here for a thread discussing kick system.
    • Team editing system - along with booting players, replacing dropped players with henchmen, and somehow the opposite, replacing henchmen with players.
    • Ingame email system - post office?
    • Friends list categories - click here for thread on this
    • More 'mutual' friends list, giving details of when last online, and other things.
    • Linking to that, a records office where you can record ingame character relations (brother, parent, etc.), real or made up. This would be available for all of Tyria to view.
    • Role-playing districts - click here for a rather ancient but still running petition on this
    • More skills
    • More pets
    • More races - as in human/dwarf/elf races.
    • More lots of things
    New land

    Obviously, as civilised rumor has it, the next Chapter is gonna be in Cantha, to the south of the current world. Hopefully, it will still be on the map so we can scroll up to the old world.
    Now, firstly, as well as having this new continent, there are plenty of gaps and things in the current world to fill in.
    • The Charr homeland - click here for a thread of mine about adding this for Christmas including a hide-collecting theme...but it does discuss the Charr homeland.
    • The ruins of Orr- in the manual it tells us Orr sunk under the sea but maybe there can be some islands above sea level and you can walk across in the shallows. click here for a short thread on this
    • North of Kryta, round the side of the Giants Basin - click here for a thread on my idea for land here
    • North of Maguuma
    • Big, big space south of the Maguuma jungle
    • The 'mountain wall' and the other lands that separate Ascalon and the Crystal Desert.
    • The coast on the west side of the Shiverpeaks
    • Areas just like FoW and UW for Melandru, Lyssa and Dwayna statues.
    • A few more small gaps.
    See my fairly old but detailed and generally good thread here for some good ideas on filling in the big 'gaps in the map'.

    After that, obviously we have Cantha, the new continent. Here is a list for it:
    • Needs to be big
    • Less linear - less missions, more open quests and stories and ways to go
    • Zones need to be bigger and more open and passable
    • Pretty, green river valleys, flowers, mountains, deserts, jungles, all of it.
    • A bit like China? Cantha, Canton, Cantonese? Hmmm.
    • Big, big city/cities
    • Cities should be better - more buildings, the traders should be in shops and Xunlai should have a bank, there should be a big market area and lots of pretty stuff
    • More enemies, more varieties of them, not just the same old, same old families.
    • There should be a walk passage, possibly going south from Crystal Desert, linking the old and new continents.
    See my moderately long post on this page concerning cities, and some other ideas on that thread about Chapter 2 in general too.

    Enemies
    • More variety
    • Still as dumb
    • No more: scorpions, gargoyles, ice imps, ... and many more annoying ones.
    • Need to look better and there should be more higher level 'Don't go near him' guys.
    • Varying enemy personalities/tactics
    Henchmen
    • More versions of them, and perhaps they should have second professions?
    • More intelligent
    • More personality, background
    • Own customisable ones that are outside the towns, where you can pick them up. So you can upgrade, customise and train them how you like. The old standard ones would still be available in the city.
    • Better henchmen controls - click here for FrogDevourer's detailed thread on this
    Trading
    • A trading area
    • Auction house - click here for a detailed thread on this.
    • full preview system, including weapons, armour, dyes, etc etc
    • Dye mixers where you can see the possible mixes first.
    • Speak in trade channel
    • Fix economy issues
    • idea - mob drop less gold but more 'monster drops'. You can sell these to a trader but the prices will vary depending on other players selling them so farming issues are evened.
    Click here for a detailed discussion on economy started by Accurax.

    Click here for a thread about how to stop inflation/economy issues by the implementation of gold sinks.

    Interface
    • Viewing others' health, energy and skills
    • Colour editing options
    Weapons
    • More of them
    • New weapons ideas: boomerang, blow dart, whip, 'mace' hammer skin
    • Melee/caster weapons
    • More customisation of weapons, including naming and choosing stats
    • Prettier weapons
    • Dual wielding
    • Dual handed weapons
    • Showing weapon in hubs?
    • Weapon upgrades trader - would be able to sell you upgrades you have unlocked
    • Bow grips of wilderness survival/expertise/beast mastery
    • Ranger weapons linked to other attributes other than Markmanship - click here for thread on this
    • Shields/staffs/wands with ranger mods.
    • To do with customising weapons - a weapons customiser trader, who can make you, for a price, any type/style of weapon you have unlocked, with higher cost for higher stats. Also, you would be able to choose upgrades to put on it (ones you have unlocked), and with ones that vary in effectiveness, if you have unlocked them you can choose to make them higher stats e.g. if you have unlocked +14% axe mastery you can make it +20% (for a price). And, you could also customise your weapon with patterns, styles and insignias, possibly from files you have made on other programs. Even further, you should be able to name them.
    • Option for bow string visuals - click here for thread on this
    • More visual effects on weapons - for example blood on and dripping off a vampiric weapon, poison on a poison weapon, etc. Fiery, fire, lightning, electric.
    • Weapon mods for holy damage, chaos damage, etc. (PvE only)
    See this thread concerning weapon customising.

    Miscellaneous
    • Walking command click here
    • A few minor issues
    • Along with new lands being more passable, we should be able to jump.
    • Swimming?
    • /favor emote.
    • Map travelling animation
    • Toggling weapons in towns, sheathing.
    • Better skill graphics/animations - click here for thread referring to it.
    • Collectibles! (cards, dolls, books, etc etc!)
    • Jewellery/accessories
    • More and better emotes. There are many that we find ourselves needing in the game, such as /cry and /sleep.
    • Emotes directed at others, such as punch X or talk to X.
    • Type /emote and then something custom so you say as an emote. For example, you type, /emote Bob is feeling happy. It comes up on the chat as 'Bob is feeling happy.'
    • Clothing, ranging in style, not the same as armour, just for looks.
    • The Acolyte's idea to make SF farming more challenging by fixing the gear/keg/book trick and AI aggro. click here
    • Click here for my old but well revised idea on 'Signature Skills'.
    • See an old thread by Galatea on 'Player Incentives', (cannot sum up but will say there are some interesting ideas in it) click here
    This old thread contains some interesting ideas relating to Chapter 2:

    http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=78626

    Firstly:Professions

    The class offered here are either too overpowered or could easily be created by crossing certain classes. If you want a shaman, just cross a monk and a necro.


    Guild stuff
    Single handling, these series of guild alliance ideas you mention would be the undoing of Guild Wars. Have you ever heard of a monoply? There illegal in the US because monopoly imbalance captalism by making it unfair for new enterprise to be introduce, have a fair chance of selling a product and prevent bigger business from buying them out. With guild being able to form ally alliances and umbrella alliance, you would create a guild monopoly that would mess the ranking system up, prevent players from achieving the number one spot and having monopoly guilds engaging in in-game mafia activities or imperalism.

     

    Other ideas like guild storage, decorating, lounging, neighborhood island and Guild NPCs, were just stupid. Training area is need since you can do unoffical battles to practice team tactics.

    PvP Stuff

    A lot of what you ask in term of PvP were originally put in the BETA, but were taken out because of huge complaint. If you played the BETA (which you obvious didn't), we had captured the flag and king of the hill in both TPK and regular competition. We also had burial grounds, which was the larges arena in TPK that had up to six team fighting at the same time.

    While I agree with more arenas, I disagree with control areas for friends (can be exploited), money rewards for faction, (farming), PvPvE. (If you read my argue with Paul0t relating to TPK Burial grounds, you can apply that here.) Slade and Tekno ideas for special condition arenas were just moronic. Colosseum would be fair non-rangers who don't have spirit counters and non-necro and non-elementalist whom are without AOEs. 1v1 has been rejected for the primary reason that this is a team game. (The same applies to Colosseum mode.)

    Some general stuff

    We don't need increase storage, squirrel. We don't need pubs or bars because the game is to be played, not lounge. Plus the players would crowd the pub. Growing and cutting hair, day & night cyles, a bigger variety of skills and pets were all great ideas.

    Team editting isn't a good idea since you should find out what team member can stay and who can't before fighting.

    • Role-playing districts - click here for a rather ancient but still running petition on this

    They have RP districts, they are in PvE. And if you WoW, the same problem that plague GW. The in-game community is already crap and putting a RP wouldn't change nothing because the in-trolls would go there too to piss you off.


    Enemies
    Monsters in this game already come in variety in appearance; unfortunately, they created based on existing archtypes. (i.e Gargoryle haves the same characters as elementalist.) Also you said improve the design on the monsters. I thought GW has the best graphics. It seems as though you recognize the same ugly designs of this game as I do. It's better than NwN and the upcoming DnD game, but not better than the likes WoW, FF or EQ II. 

    • No more: scorpions, gargoyles, ice imps, ... and many more annoying ones.

    You want a variety of monsters, yet you want to get rid a couple of monsters who don't share the same characters. Can you say Double Standards?

    • Need to look better and there should be more higher level 'Don't go near him' guys.

    We already have those.

    • Varying enemy personalities/tactics

    See above about monsters and archtypes.


    Henchmen
    SOME nice ideas with customizing the henchmen, but the personality and background and henchmen growth was stupid. If you're getting lonely in PvE then play with PCs instead of NPCs. As for henchmen growth, players don't need more stuff to do and they don't like micro-managing.

    Trading

    For future referrence, leave the economy fixing to ANET. We don't need trading areas, we already have Trade Channel (no one uses it or gets on it.) The auction house has been confirmed by ANet I believe, and having monster drops lower in price depending on how often they are sold is a bad idea since it would deflat money earned the same way money inflates when buying rare competents.


    Weapons

    An ANet employing noted they MAY be adding a great sword and a great axe, but that's it. You most likely won't see other weapons you had list here. Dueling mostly won't be added since you exploited if you use monk or elementalist weapon enchantments. The custom weapon idea just shows how much of a munchkin you are.


    Miscellaneous

    You can jump if you type the command in. As for jumping in the field, no because ANET would have to redesign the map to make it longer will allow quick escapes or gain access to areas off limits, which can lead to players get stuck or finishing a mission earlier. Swimming and jumping in field can't be done because engine and animation don't support it. They have to redesign the whole game. Lastly, stop encourage ideas of micro-managing, squirrel. Players don't need to collectibles and they serve no purpose, but to relieve YOU of your boredom. Seriously, you don't need to be playing a MMORPG, you need a console game like Pokemon, Monster Rancher or Final Fantasy because you want to play game were spend a lot of time of micro-managing.
