    Hm. I really like the shield, but I'm not sure it's worth ~18g. I would have liked the bow better if it weren't that shimmery blue, it doesn't really go with the theme of my ranger. I think the quiver and mace are meh.

    The cheetah Charr backpack is super cute though, definitely going to snag one of those when prices come down if I don't luck upon one myself. The 'killer whale' quaggan is also cute. Still waiting for the Tybalt backpack though, I will have that for ALL the chars! :P

    Is there anything else besides the mini and rocket booster from the 5-man? I think the fused gauntlets are ugly.

    do you have ideas how to create open world dungeons properly? If so, you're welcome to contribute your ideas in this reddit-post.

    it’s all about bringing some coordinated challenging gameplay into the open world outside of dungeons, but don’t forget casual players who can also contribute in a meaningfull and less stressful way.

    Flame Temple Ruins is an example for a mini-dungeon where you need a coordinated team. Entrance gated through a DE-series, several rooms opening after a puzzle is solved (which can't be done alone).
    (sry I don't post on Reddit).


    Edit: Question about all that minis. Collecting them seems to be one aspect of the game - but I really never see them. Not in the cities, not outside - I think I noticed ONE player having a miniature out since gamestart. Compared to GW1 or WoW, where you see minipets all the time, I' asking myself if there is something horribly wrong with them. Do you have to put them out each time you enter a new zone?

    They need an Inventory slot to carry around.

    More minis = less bag/bank space.

    In a game where you have to pay for those things, it's not a surprise that most people don't fool with them.

    they have a seperate slot in the bank, like each of the crafting materials

    I thought you had to physically have it on you in your bags to use? I haven't tried to use one pretty much since the beginning of the game so I could be remembering it wrong.

    It works that way as far as I know: To use a miniature, you have to have them inside your bags. You can store them inside your bank, where each miniature has it's own place like crafting materials and stack up to 250. However, if you use the inventory option 'store all materials', your miniatures also disappear from your inventory, and the only way to prevent is to put them in safeboxes.

    What I don't know is if miniatures have to be used every time after using portals / waypoints (like it was in WoW for several years), if they can be used everywhere, and if they are visible all the time (maybe they won't show up for players like me who don't have very high performance settings, especially in towns).

    I believe they do this because its a different team creating the dungeons now, and they are giving it a test to see what the feedback will be like, if that model is something to go after.
    I believe they´ve said that the dungeon will be there until 12th of May, but i´m not 100% sure about that.

    I just think in a game where inventory is regulated by real money and where it's such a hassle to use them that's the answer to the question of why no one has them. I don't see them often either.

    I was hoping they would have a special slot just for mini's. But GW1 never had anything like that (you had to store all of them in your bags/bank) so I don't expect GW2 to have any sort of function like that either. Fencers is totally correct in how ArenaNet develops their games, great gameplay but terrible secondary systems.

    I know!

    The bank in GW2 is at least somewhat improved over GW1. Emphasis on, "somewhat".

    They do things that other MMOs take years to implement, like sending materials straight to your bank and being able to craft without having the items in your bags. So it's give and take really.

    I expect not improving some features are to prevent shooting themselves in the foot in their cash shop. I mean, shared storage isn't just a convenience feature tbh. If that was the case they would give you a default gigantic bank, but they have slots they need to sell. To be clear, I'm not against that in this game.

    Right they have some good ideas. Sending mats to the collectable bank is fantastic. But on some other features it is just bare bones or nonexistent. It puzzles me really, especially when you see them respond to suggestions of putting those features in with surprise. They don't seem to be in touch with the players at times.

    Other than a more appropriate LFG feature, I'd honestly be curious to see these examples the collective you keeps mentioning like this. I haven't really found anything to be a problem, though I am quick to notice similar issues in most other games.

    Perhaps this applis entirely to PvP settings? I still haven't really done that in this game. I haven't run across anything aside from group formation that hinders me in any way while playing the game.
