I love the skill calc and crafting recipes. I love discovery in GW2 but sometimes I just wannabrank up quickly or something. But yeah, by far my two favorite things about GW2DB. My guild leader likes the influence page lol.

I REALLY hope someone helps out with the interactive map. That would be soooo valuable. There is always one or two Interest points hiding somewhere that are a bitch to find and an update to the maps would be ideal. Would kill for a update to, good version, of a map.

Oh and i like the crafting list and obviously the skill calc. Crafting is very overwhelming and this helps a lot. Skill calc is just a given, always helpful and nice.

Gotta be the crafting recipes for me, that was - and still is - such a big help. If not for that, I would still be combining random crap from my inventory and wasting so many mats which I worked hard to get just to make components which mayor may not combine and give me that sexual xp boost. So yeah, thanks for that :)

I like the item database. Saves a lot of trouble of figuring out what certain crafting items do.

Is there any way to [b]ADD[/b] items to the database that aren't already in it? The first item I searched for to see if I could add any information for isn't listed, and well, providing the item to the DB would definately count as a contribution don't you think?

Edit: Make that a few things I've found so far, and still checking and taking screenshots of them.

sanktanglia and the rest of the dev team are working on getting missing items in the database. You can use the feedback thread linked in the OP to leave feedback on which items are missing.

Feel free to PM me if you have a question regarding moderation, want to leave some feedback, or just want to chat!

Thanks, I posted several images of the missing items in that thread for them. Not sure if they'll at all count toward the OP,but I'm glad to help out regardless.
