I feel the collectors in this game, while a great source of goods and special weapons, need more stuff to give, and maybe more varieties of items.
I don't want to make a long essay, in case some may not be interested in reading some long thing, so I'll make my suggestion shorter than I had intended.
Very basic idea really, all I suggest is that collectors should give more stuff like maybe dyes, rare materials, runes, weapon mods, stuff like that (yes, I know that the ub3r rich people will flame me for suggesting more easily gained max mods & runes )
Shing Shang Shimmyang [Collector]
Hello, I have traveled far and wide, a warrior by trade. I have slain many dragons and ferocious demons and in my journeys I have picked up many rare treasures and expensive luxury goods. I, unfortunately have grown old as you can see, and can no longer gain the thrill of slaying a monster I've set my eyes on since I arrived in the Jade Sea...a powerful Saltspray Dragon. Bring me 1 of the beast's fangs and I can give you this in return:
Bolt of Silk
Bolt of Linen
Lump of Charcoal
Roll of Parchment
and maybe some more...

Welcome to the Echovald forest, I hope you will enjoy our lovely place. I have lived here many years, making dyes for the Kurzick's strange face makeups, especially black ones. I can make you some luxurious dyes if you can bring me X dragon moss to get the coloring. Here's what I can give you:

I am a powerful wizard from the lands of Kryta beyond the sea, I have made my home here in Raisu Palace to study the magic arts of Conjuration, Enchantments, and imbueing items, simple symbols with powerful magics. As you may have noticed, my study, within the palace, is overrun by horrible Shiro'Ken monsters, slay them and bring me X powerful Soul Stones as proof of your mighty vengeance and I can give you this in return:

What do you guys think? Please post your opinions here, if this is a wanted idea, maybe even Gaile will post here! That'd be soooo cool! (yeah, so maybe I love ANet and Gaile a lot, and Guild Wars, and everything else pertaining to the game, except whammos that aggro )
