Bug Fixes[edit]

Skills[edit]

Victory or Death

  • Fixed a bug that prevents the Guild Lord in GvG from charging into melee range when fighting the opposing Guild Lord.

Elementalist

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Elementalist skill ‘Unsteady Ground’ to fail if its target died before the casting time completed.

Mesmer

  • Fixed an incorrect error message for the Mesmer skill ‘Simple Thievery.’
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Mesmer skill ‘Signet of Illusions’ from applying the user’s Illusion attribute to certain spell effects.

Monk

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Monk skill ‘Patient Spirit’ from displaying its healed amount to the caster.

Armor[edit]

  • Fixed a bug that caused a visible gap at the elbow when Obsidian Armor (Necromancer male) was worn with certain combinations of other armor.

Quest[edit]

  • Fixed a bug in the quest named "A New Guide" that caused the quest log to show an incorrect location for Curator Ruras.

UI[edit]

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the character-select screen to display the selected character's home campaign incorrectly, and to falsely state that the character could not be used.
  • Fixed a bug that caused distant Heroes to incorrectly display a change in Health instead of Energy when under the effects of some skills. For example, a Hero using Storm Djinn's Haste while beyond compass range would appear to lose approximately 10 Health per second instead of the actual 1 Energy per second.

  • 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.
Spanish:
  • 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".
