After about 50 hours of playtime so far, and being a Guild Wars 1 player since beta of that game, I've noticed a few minor things that have been bugging me since the start. I'm not talking about bugs or issues such as the WvW window not updating properly or the dailies, etc. I mean minor features or key binds. Feel free to add your own and post constructive criticism if you disagree!
1) Something that clearly shows enemies are invulnerable at the moment
In Guild Wars 1, you simply couldn't attack them (green name = ally) before the fight started. In Guild Wars 2, I frequently unleash on an enemy that is suddenly invulnerable (story reason, running back, etc). A clear indicator would be very useful.
2) A Keybind to move between chat channels
Self explanatory. I like the idea of having multiple windows for different things, but allowing me to move between them forward or backwards in a cycling fashion with a keybind would be great!
3) A keybind to target self
More of a personal one here, but I didn't realize how often I targetted myself in GW1 before playing GW2 and constantly pressing f after a fight (and not to search enemies)! Not really an important one, but there's no real reason to take off this option in my mind.
4) Ability to permanently arrange guild list like in Guild Wars 1 (doesn't save right now)
This one is pretty annoying. The guild list in Guild Wars 2 is a huge mess right now for me, with everyone jumbled around wether they be officers or not and not showing who logged off in an organized manner. It's a bit of a pain with a guild of 120 members so far, especially when you can't really tell who's inactive. I know you can move people around with the arrows but it's far from perfect and it doesn't save. Another thing is that the history tab is all mixed together (upgrades, influence gain, etc). A way to divide those would be great as well.
5) Something in skill description to clearly indicate when you will and won't transform.
For example Reaper of Grenth elite skill for Thieves says "Become a Reaper of Grenth...". You would think that implicated a transformation but it doesn't. Other skills with a similar description do, however, transform you. Something like "Transformation Skill." would make this issue non-existant.
6) The ability to see someone's title by hovering over their name while holding CTRL like in Guild Wars 1
Right now, the only way to see someone's title is to click on their name to target them and honestly there's no way I'm going to target everyone just to see if anyone has a high level PvP title or something. First thing I always did in GW1 when entering a town was holding down CTRL and looking at everyone's titles while I was running to stash; just for fun, even if no title impressed me, it's fun to see who has what. Just a quick glimpse, and it's more fun if you're able to actually show off your title vs no one knowing what you have.
That's the end of my list for now. Like I said, feel free to add your own and post reasonable things only (IE things that developpers can actually do if people agree with it).
*EDIT : There's already a topic for player to player trades so I left that out.
