Since many consider last year's Halloween update to be the best update in GW2's short history, what wishes do you have for this year's Halloween update?

I second this motion.

Also, I want Scarlet to drop dead, before she remembers to team up with Mad King Thorn and conquer the world.

Many Benny Hill chases would follow.

I would like to get the parts of King Thorn's realm (of the uw) back. Mean Dungeon, Clocktower, Minigames. I would like an improvement on the final party with less walking. I would like the removal of the pumpkin f-clicking as well as every other kill x achievement (and also every other achievement in general, including burning the whole unholy system). I would also like the removal of the first phase which was very much a gem shop update only.

Anything I really want will draw the ire of the white knights. Therefore, my vote is pumpkin beer. Because, you know, pumpkin beer is really pretty good - and knocks you off your feet.

I want another scavenger hunt quest, like how you acquired the flaming book back piece.  That was one of the most fun quests I ever embarked on.

I'm curious to see how much old content they bring back for people who could not complete it last year.  I expect a merging of some of last year's content with new content for those who finished everything last year.

A better system than last years for acquiring the skins/other items dropped.

Used over 50 BL keys last year as well as many of the extra Halloween chests added later (missed out on many of those because I trashed a lot of useless tonics before the recipe was added) and only got one dagger skin. Since last Halloween I've had a strong dislike for all the RNG chests.

Also, the clock tower as a single player instance so I can attempt it with a decent frame rate.

Too late, you just had to mention it to Anet didn't you? :angry:
Benny Hill in Kryta, no anything but that, feed him to the Charr. :o

I would like to see the dungeon instance like the Mad King's Labyrinth.

Somewhere in that Labyrinth, placed randomly, is a boss (a champ plastic spider or something) the party has to find and kill before the clock strikes midnight (a timer).  If you do kill the sub-boss before the timer expires, an Avatar of the Mad King boss fight occurs. At 75% of the boss' health, 4 of the 5 players are locked in cages while 1 player is left to solo the avatar for 2 minutes or 10% of its health is diminished.  This repeats for the other 4 players. If a player dies, 1/10th of the avatar's health is restored and the next player is selected.  Once all 5 players have taken their turn, everyone is unlocked to finish the fight.  The team must defeat the avatar before the clock strikes 13 (another timer).  If the party defeats the avatar, there's a reward and if before the timer finishes, there is a bonus reward like a chest with an increased chance to drop a Halloween skin, etc.

I'd be nice if they advanced the Mad King's Court story, and tied it to Living Story.  So, the dungeon would be Mad King Thorn and Scarlet's wedding.  Scarlet Thorn works as a name.
