The Daily Grind: What do you want out of Guild Wars 2’s next expansion?

It’s no secret that ArenaNet is working on Guild Wars 2’s expansion. What is secret is what exactly is in it.

I don’t want to speculate on the lore because honestly, I don’t care about lore that much. I want there to be a story, and I just need it to be good enough. I care a whole lot more about the mechanics. I want new classes. I want new skills for existing classes. I want the mastery system to be buffed out in terms of utility and fun and then downgraded in terms of necessity and grind. I want a new landmass that isn’t focused around falling and gliding — preferably old landmasses from Classic Guild Wars but given renewed plot purpose. I want to see the studio focusing on its bread-and-butter players rather than raids and fractals. I’d love to see heroes. And I want a crapton of new armor and weapon skins that aren’t buried behind dungeons or lockboxes.

Will I get any of these things? Yeah, probably not, but a girl can dream about Cantha and Elona, right?

How about you? What do you want out of Guild Wars 2’s next expansion?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
