Skill Updates[edit]

We will be evaluating the following changes over the course of the next week. Additional adjustments may be made during that time period.

Guild versus Guild[edit]



  • Pious Assault Pious Assault: increased Energy cost to 10; functionality changed to: "You lose 1 Enchantment. If this attack hits, you deal +5..20 damage and inflict a Deep Wound for 5..20 seconds."









Bug Fixes[edit]

  • Fixed a bug in the Eye of the North quest Kilroy Stonekin's Punch-Out Extravaganza! that occasionally prevented players who had regained full Energy from standing up after being knocked down.
  • Fixed a bug in the Eye of the North quest Leader of the Pack that prevented some players from completing it.
  • Fixed a bug with the Eye of the North PvE Skill Ursan Blessing that caused it to incorrectly replace some Skills when its effect expired.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a player’s profession to appear using the wrong gender-noun on the character select screen in some languages.


  • Added the option to bind keys that activate Hero Skills. These keys can be bound through the "Action: Order Hero (1-3) to use Skill (1-8)" option in the Control options panel (Menu > Options > Control).
  • Updated the Hero AI for the Dervish Skill, Faithful Intervention.

Open Travel: Territory and District UI Changes[edit]

  • As a continuation of last year’s “Territory and District UI Changes” that saw language district restrictions removed for America and Europe, we are now removing restrictions on travel to Asian language districts.
  • In this update restrictions to Korean language districts will be removed and players of American, European and Korean districts will be able to travel back and forth between these language districts.
  • Restrictions on travel to Japanese and Taiwanese language districts will be removed in a subsequent build.

Guild Wars Wiki Notes[edit]

  • There were also some additional translation changes in some languages.
  • Title ranks are now shown with the correct gender of the bearer, they were previously shown with the gender of the viewing character. A female character would see other characters ranks as female regardless of their genders.
  • Delver title rank was renamed from "Pensador" (Thinker) to "Excavador" (Digger).
  • Rata Sum town was incorrectly named "Bosque de Mirto" (Mirtle Forest), now it's correctly named "Rata Sum".
