Is there a way to replay old stories?? I notice that you can replay Both eternal throne stories using the chapter option?

What about all the rest?? Mekeb, Iokath, ect. ect,

If there is no way then there should be..

Thanks!!

I agree I loooove if you could the re-play the old stories. I would even role play with my friends or by myself, even have different mount, weapons,armor cosmetic looks depending in what part of the story I be! Not to mention the hours I would endless spent exploring all choices, dialog, romance and outcomes of EVERY CLASS to see the results at the end of the Eternal Throne Saga!

I still create new characters as I keep discovering more and more different bits of story that I like to play to add to my Legacy tree fro RPG reasons. But being able to do it with my Main would be just a dream come true! I have such good memories in does old quest with my main... that I wish to relive my my old vet characters!

Also it be great to expand the chapters system with the old stories as they keep adding new!
Yep the "Force of Nostalgia feels" is strong with me! haha lol

Completely agree with the person above. I would love it if all content was replayable.

Can someone point me to another MMORPG which lets you replay *anything* that isn't a dungeon or raid or recurring event quest?

(I suppose you can make a case about Guild Wars 1's "Missions", except that I'd mark them as the equivalent to e.g. replaying [STORY] mode FPs.)

God I looove your cynic comments Steve it always make me smile. You do justice to your user name! lol
Ehem but GOD don't get me started on GW2 I STILL replay Living world stories in my mains constantly! I freaking love it replaying does specially after purchasing a new cosmetic or looks in store or in-game, for RPG reasons of course! haha

Because it is fun to go through the stories again.. You can play the eternal throne stories again.. Why not the other stories??

The other issue I have is if you play the stories out of order, you can't go back to the ones you missed..

I should be able to play the game the way I want in the order I want..

Either that or just not give your character the option to skip ahead..

OK, but what does that have to do with replaying stuff?

Because they didn't build them that way, and also, apparently, the original class stories are a tangled mess of untidy coding that would cost way more to rebuild to support replays than it could possibly be worth. It's especially not worth introducing a huge bug count into that content *just* to enable that.

Because, as noted elsewhere, it's *one* story, not a bunch of separate stories.

Or, just, like, you know, don't take the option when it's offered?
