Picture[edit]

Who is the warrior in the picture with eve, cynn and mhenlo? Is it just some random one if so why use that instead of devona or little thom? Ultrametroid 00:39, 16 March 2011 (GMT)

Professions[edit]

Who wrote all the profession stubs? The language is atrocious, and the information is generally uninformed and irrelevant.


Infobox CVG[edit]

Any opinions on portin;l; over something like Wikipedia's Infobax CVG for use on the campaign article pages? Not all of the sections would be needed here; but I think it's a useful way to show system requirements, release dates, distribution media, etc. I know there's also an interest in avoiding the over-prolifferation of templates here, so I'm not working on it myself at this time. --Barek 10:52, 12 February 2007 (PST)

Stub[edit]

I believe this article has almost all of what we need to complete it. Anything more added would be excellent. Perhaps we can get a list of sorts for what else we should add? Steelhammer 22:00, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Professions[edit]

I disagree with the edit to Warrior in the professions section - it's way too bulky of a description now. To me, this page should only contain one or two line summaries of each profession. If the reader wants more details, they can follow the links to the individual profession articles. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 23:45, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

I agree. The Ice Master 18:01, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

Update March 31st[edit]

I added pictures and lined-up some of the tabs. Feel free to contribute more. Now we need to work on the other two campaigns.

gods[edit]

I don't get why which god goes with which profession is in here. There is no option in the game to follow a god, yet all the professions make it sound like there is an in-game god chooser. The gods do represent the professions, but I've heard of only very few people taking role playing in this game to that extent.

In the lore, each profession has a patron diety, Lyssa - Mesmers, Assassins, Grenth - Necros, Rits, Assassins, Balthazar - Warriors, Prot Monks, Fire Eles... it's all in the manual. Of course, you don't or shouldn't limit yourself to this style of play--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:84.13.71.68 (talk).
No one really roleplays in this game. — Eloc 19:08, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
i do , my main character is a sexy necromancer who is a follower of Grenth AND Lyssa (as are all my other characters)
oops forgot to use the tildes Fenrir dragonbone 08:55, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Campaign / Expansion infobox?[edit]

Anyone else think that a campaign/expansion infobox would be useful? It could list the release data, and have direct links to storylines, missions, quests, skills, locations, and maybe even green weapons, collectors, and trainers. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 20:45, 5 May 2007 (EDT)


Oh my God[edit]

  • The latest vandalism was hilarious. "Mesmers are the mentally retarded." --Chiaro 00:56, 22 May 2007 (EDT)
Not very hilarious when you try to keep the wiki clean and get this kind of shit 15 times a day. -- 19px (General | Talk) 01:24, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

Problem with GW game my friend bought[edit]

Guild Wars Standard Edition (box content) The Guild Wars Standard Edition box with 2 fold out flaps comes in 3 different looks (different character pictures on the cover) and includes the following:

Game discs (2) The GuildWars Manuscripts game manual GuildWars Quick Reference card Install Guild Wars installation information sheet


It didn't come with the Guild Wars Manuscripts game manual what should my friend do?

a) Go to the retailer and ask for a new one, or b) Download the manual from the official site Morgoth Bauglyr 18:40, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Continent of Tyria[edit]

noone needs the manual. if you were smart, you would tell your friend to ask some people or just look up his questions here like you did. or ask people in the game. should we maybe add a picture of oldschool-tyria before the release of gw:en? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 19:56, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Removed Information[edit]

Have a look at this diff. I think a lot of information was removed in that edit that should have remained in the article. I realise the intention may have been to tidy it up and make it shorter, but I don't think that should be at the expense of the content. Should we merge some of it back in? Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 23:05, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that the profession information needs to be duplicated so the cut down was fine. However I think that information about the different releases what they have, when they were available and the different box arts for the release is pretty important if you want to document everything about Guild Wars. Perhaps put that information into a separate page (or pages) and link to it from here? --Aspectacle 23:28, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, now somebody has taken the time to add more info back to the professions, when it had already been written before. :/ Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 14:36, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
Removing info to make an article a stub seems really weird.. :/ I'll try to add things back. - anja talk 14:39, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Boxes[edit]

Why is there no images for all of the boxes for Prophecies? There was 3 different ones for the Standard edition, this one, one with Cynn/Mhenlo the the one there with the Warrior and Eve. — Eloc 06:43, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

WHat Prophecie?[edit]

What is the prophecie?

Any ideas?

--Sir Phil SP 10:55, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

It is the Flameseeker Prophecies. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 18:18, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

The article will answer that for you, that's why it's there. Storyline of Prophecies will also tell you what's it's about. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 21:38, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Guild Wars Platinum Edition[edit]

I bought a different Platinum Edition this past weekend. It's called Guild Wars Factions Platinum Edition. Comes with Guild Wars GoTY, Factions, and the Bonus Mission Pack.

Guild Wars Special Edition[edit]

quote: "Unlock code for 7 normal skills, 1 Elite skill and 2 weapon or armor upgrades"

question: Are any of these available in presearing and if so, what?

not available it was probably vandilism so dont count on it unless your talking about the mods that are on the bonus items.--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Briar (talk).
Unlocking skills only refers to Player Vs Player, not Roleplaying. — Eloc 17:57, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

The special edition allows you to unlock skills for PvE as well as PvP. You will have to visit the skill trader or use a tome before an individual character can use them, so you won't be able to access them in Pre. But it does mean that you can buy end-game skills from the Sir Bertram in Ascalon (or Sergio in LA for Factions/NF chars) instead of waiting to get to Dakk in Ember Light Camp. Also, any heroes you acquire from NF/EotN will be able to use them. 82.35.227.163 20:10, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

That's true... kind of. Unlocking skills is not exclusive to the special edition, it's available in any edition, even any campaign. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 23:22, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Historical screen shots[edit]

I would like to see a seperate article about how Guild Wars looked like and felt like at the start. From screenshots of my 2005-founded guild (I joined GW late 2007) I can see that the graphics was much simpler at that time. From the update notes I learnt that there were some milestone updates that significantly changed the whole game and look. It may be interesting to collect these changes and show how the game evolved from the start. I would like to start an article myself, but I am no veteran player, so I don't know what change was really important and how the gameplay was affected. Silmar Alech 15:16, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Me too. I was looking through old screen shots and I didn't realize the interface had changed so much Retro77 19:13, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

IDK[edit]

It will not let me sign in it says i dont have a valid email address.  :(

Then... make one. Also try to sign your comments with four tildes like this: ~ ~ ~ ~ But without the spaces. Aldarik 00:35, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Melandru's Stalker[edit]

the first pet is the stalker because when u talk to master ranger nente, he says to go capture it with charm animal. therefore, if you complete the quest, it is your first pet. Their first pet is usually the melandru stalker? Only in prophecies and even in prophecies it's usually a moa or something.. Why is that n ot there? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.73.224.111 (talk).

This page is about Prophecies, and the addition of the pet allows more interesting links to be introduced rather poetically. G R E E N E R 07:47, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

who was this ranger?[edit]

http://www.guildwars.com/products/guildwars/gallery/hires/rendering014.php

I seen her in the factions manuscript as well.

Any ideas? 131.247.140.18 21:19, 25 April 2011 (UTC) Yumiko Ishida (on college's IP)

Post-Searing Missions[edit]

I have a question, if you're from a different campaign, such as Factions, and you travel to Tyria, and complete the first mission there...Do you still get the reward even though it is the first mission of a different campaign??? --78.149.84.60 18:01, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Here you go, Quoted from the mission page. (Non-Prophecies characters will not receive any reward for completing this mission on normal mode.) T1Cybernetic User T1Cybernetic Glob of Ectoplasm.png 18:48, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

The END?[edit]

Drops from all holidays. WTF? Can anyone find confirmation? Media:WTF_The_End.jpg --The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nota (talk) at 00:49, 3 April 2014 (UTC).

nice trolling guys. -Chieftain Alex 00:58, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Seriously, go do a farm. or tell me what I'm missing 63.142.79.193 01:29, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Logged in on my warrior and farmed the raptors after seeing that screenshot and, yeah the festival drops have begun. Also the crier has been updated to mention the birthday celebrations. Shing Jea Boardwalk isn't open yet though. C0Zm1c (talk) 01:38, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) If those items are currently dropping, it just means ArenaNet erroneously started the Anniversary Celebration early this year (all those items in that image did drop last year during Eighth Year Anniversary Celebration#Festival rewards) by messing up on the automated timing for Anniversary Celebration. I don't have Guild Wars on this PC, but someone could check to see if the Anniversary Celebration NPCs are appearing --Silver Edge 01:41, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
The Elite Xunlai Agent Isa Ku has appeared in Lion's Arch. Probably others too but I'm too busy farming drops to look! C0Zm1c (talk) 01:52, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
In addition to Foreman the Crier mentioning the Anniversary Celebration, Elite Xunlai Agent Isa Ku appearing, and the same items dropping from last year's Anniversary Celebration, Ceira, Sworn to Fire also currently offers to unlock Hound of Balthazar for accounts that haven't unlocked it. Except for the aforementioned, nothing else related to Anniversary Celebration is active: Shing Jea Boardwalk; you cannot access Dragon Arena nor Rollerbeetle Racing since the NPCs that send you to those outposts aren't appearing; Kaineng Center and Shing Jea Monastery aren't decorated; Victory Token collectors (except for Elite Xunlai Agent Isa Ku) aren't appearing; the login screen announcements don't mention the Anniversary Celebration. As mentioned on Anniversary Celebration, the event is suppose to be active from April 22 to April 29. Maybe ArenaNet erroneously entered April 02 to April 09 for some of the Anniversary Celebration features. --Silver Edge 06:27, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
