Nightfall Primary Quest

I accidentally abandoned a primary quest in Nightfall ( Mysterious Message )with my character "Deathly Apparitions" How can I get the quest back. I can go no further in Nightfall with this character without it. Thanks for any help !!! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Spinescrews (talk).

See Mysterious Message (Nightfall quest). It says you can obtain it from Lonai in Sunspear Sanctuary. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 17:00, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Bisquit.....I've already gotten the quest once from Lonei and accidentally abandoned it. She will not let me have it again. Already tried.Thanks!--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Spinescrews (talk).
Sorry about no signature.--Spinescrews 17:36, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
Did you take the quest For a Price while you had Mysterious Message abandoned? If so, you can no longer take the other quest, since you chose Margrid the Sly instead of the Master of Whispers, and you will be able to continue the story by completing For a Price. The List of Nightfall missions gives you an overview of the storyline, so if what I've said doesn't help, follow that backwards until you can get the quests / do the missions you need. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 11:31, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
Oops sorry I got that slightly wrong. For a Price is a follow up to Mysterious message. It might be worth going out to Jahai Bluffs and seeing if you can take the next quest from Margrid or Whispers. Maybe you completed the quest instead of abandoning it. :) Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 11:35, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Guild halls

If you purchase a service from the guild lord (a.k.a. a merchant or a dye trader for example) And say you are looking to buy a different guild hall, will those services transfer from the old guild hall to the new guild hall?

Yes. All services will transfer if you wish to get a new guild hall. --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 05:01, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Skills Template Question


Whenever I ping my build or my skills, this is what always appear. And it's not only to my build but to everyone's. Like, everyone could see what my build is or what everyone's build is when they pinged theirs but I can't. :\

Renamed Bosses in Prophecies

Certain bosses in southern Shiverpeaks appear to have been renamed. For example Edibbo Pekpek is now Edibbo Kepkep. Could the developers confirm that this is because someone informed them that 'pek pek' is Cantonese baby talk for someone's bottom? To certain Chinese ears Edibbo Pekpek sounds like 'edible botty'.--Vana Runedottir 06:59, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

The questionable language wasn't Cantonese, I think it may have been Tagalog, and the slang meaning was more offensive than that. — User Kyrasantae Fin sig.gif kyrasantae 16:14, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
If I remember correctly (a Filipino friend would say it all the time) pekpek is Tagalog for vagina, or the variation that you may also call a cat. That Sounds Risky | 16:57, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

login problems

I can't log in. it keeps coming up with a box that says theres an error and i should search the support page for code=058 and i can't find anything on it. what should I do? Blake-- 14:14, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

The Error code page says: "Guild Wars was unable to connect to any login servers. This is very likely caused by an Internet routing issue" for code 058. This means your connection to the internet is probably down or your cable is unplugged or something similar. Check your internet connection and try again. --Dragon nataku 11:36, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
You might just need to restart your router. It could also be that you have a firewall or something blocking guild wars from accessing the internet. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 18:03, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
Considering that the user was able to access the wiki, I'm guessing it's not the user's internet. Most likely Guild Wars is being blocked by something; try again to make sure it wasn't just a one-time thing, then try turning off your firewall temporarily and seeing if that helps. (if it does help, you should be able to list GW.exe as an exception in your firewall's block list.) --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 20:16, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
That isnt the only problem. If you have Vista you may just simply need to update your computer. I had my updates turned off because i was annoyed by it coming up constantly but after getting this message in the game I updated everything and it worked again. It has something to do with the computer's Framework. Also i wasn't even able to get on BattleNet. (User:Kratos Highwind) 12:34, 16 March 2009


i kno its not 100% about the game but i really need help my vent wont work i can log into other rooms but not the one i need if anyone could help id appreciate it alot!!!-- 05:02, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

I know you mentioned it's not about the game but 1st: We really do like to keep it as close to game related as possible here and 2nd: I can't understand your message. Most it doesn't make enough sense for us to help you out. --Shinigami KingUser Master Fast sig-icon.png 05:31, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps the room you wish to enter in Vent requires a password? Just an idea. Another idea: Try asking on the Ventrilo forums? They'd probably know how to fix Vent problems better than we do since, well, they're the ones who made the program, and we are not. --Dragon nataku 15:57, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Stuck at 100%

my game gets stuck at 100% loading and if i use the x to close it has to repair when i reopen

Corrupted files, likely. Try uninstalling and reinstalling (yes, your computer will hate you, but it's probably the only way). Calor Talk 16:00, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Alternatively, try to get a working Gw.dat file from a friend. That stops you needing to download everything again. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 16:12, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Not the right gold

When I get a gold drop and it says its over 100 I am only getting 10 Why is that? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Because you share the gold with every member of your party. Please sign your comments with ~~~~.--Wyn's Talk page Wyn 01:47, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
The gold is shared among Heroes and Henchmen as well, despite the fact that they probably have no use for it. The only way to gain the full amount from a gold drop is to be the only member of your party (solo). --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:06, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Routing problems?

Right I've seen another guy with pretty much the same question. HOWEVER let me explain bit more.

When I try to connect at my moms house (kinda shitty connection but ALL my other games works fine) It gives me code=058 or whatever it is, telling me I got a routing issue. Right so I thought maybe its my firewall blocking it, nope its in exceptions. And the game works fine at me dads house on the same PC (yes I bring it with me lol) So the conclusion I've come up with is that its just the router or connection itself not the PC. But I know jack all about routing so I thought maybe someone could lend me a hand, or a tip? anything is welcome.

Little summary;

Internet is not the best but works fine with the exception of GW.

it IS in exceptions on the windows firewall however my Anti Virus program (AVG) im not sure about but I havent found anything blocking it atleast.

My internet IS working while im trying to connect seeing as im typing this aswell.

Its really starting to pee me of now since litteraly everything else works fine but GW just wont let me log in.

Lately its even gotten worse aswell, wont let me get past the "logging on to arenaNet" window.

So Yea I'd apriciate any help asap.

EDIT; Meh I think it's just my internet thats to slow and cant handle it -.- but if anyone have any ideas then feel free to reply :)

Not loading a city

I recently got my ranger to this city in EOTN called Rata Sum. I made it into the city and when i tried to exit, as it was loading when it hit 100% it popped up a screen and says an error has occured and shows a link for more help. Whenever I click Ok or click the website, GW shuts down. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the graphics card and it's still not working. So my character is stuck in that city and i cant access him no more. Please, what do I do?!

Sounds like you have a corrupted Gw.dat file. You'll either need to re-install Guild Wars, and are in for a big download, or get a copy of Gw.dat from a friend. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 16:52, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Also, telling us the error helps. Wouldn't want you to reinstall if it's just a temporary server issue for the Rata Sum outpost. Biscuits User Biscuits sig.png 16:53, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

If you got the "Guild Wars has encountered an unrepairable error and the program will be terminated" message error, you might need to upgrade your video card drivers. Some outposts/dungeons from the Eye of the North don't like old/cheap video cards. :( --NIN37 07:57, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

When i run in a town or in a mission i run head up and arms singing. But after the dragon's lair mission i run head down arms at my side all my lower level guys run upright. I also sceem to run faster. Is this in the game or Im seeing things I dont know if you see this or where to find this check it out. I run with a necromancer and had a hard time keeping up with my party but now I run with them. -- 04:40, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

You're getting a speed boost from somewhere. Running with arms swinging is the default animation, and the head-down, arms straight animation is when you're running faster then normal. Check your effects when you're running like that (top-left corner by default); you've got a stance active, or some sort of enchantment, or an environment effect active. If you had trouble keeping up with the party before, perhaps they had a speed boost. Do you use one of the Warrior henchmen in your party? One of them uses "Charge!", which makes the entire party run faster. If the party's going faster then you, then probably you were out of range when the henchmen used it. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:32, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Prophecies henchmen start use elite skills from Dragon's Lair onwards, and all three of the warriors have "Charge!" as their elite. -- Gordon Ecker 09:12, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Perfect. I'm 99% sure that's the explanation here. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 09:43, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Nightfall storyline

Level 20 from Eye of the North can't find quests in Nightfall.

I have installed Eye of the North expansion, Nightfall, and Factions Platinum edition. I have spent a great deal of time in Eye of the North, I became a level 20 there. I have gone to Cantha and had many quests and am now trying to find quests in Nightfall. I have completed many Nightfall quests on different character but I am having difficulty finding quests for this one. I have traveled to many parts of Istan and can only find a couple of quests there, each of them said I was reliving the quests. I can't seem to find where to start the storyline for this character in Nightfall. I recruited the sunspears and I did the one where you blow up the two ships with the oil and the catapult. Would you please help me? 22:50, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

List of Nightfall missions is good for keeping track of the storyline. Sounds like you've done Chahbek Village, so you'll be looking at the quests below it. Also, use the new section ('+') tab at the top for new questions. --חיו Chaiyo Kaldor 23:00, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Could be a corrupted Gw.dat file. If you know someone who plays that can send you their file, try replacing your own with theirs. Otherwise, you'll probably have to reinstall the game, and redownload all of the updates. :P --User Tero Gein sig.jpgtero 23:45, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure you can only get your characters the 30 extra attribute points from their starting campaign. So, a prophecy character would have to get the quests from the desert and the southern shiverpeaks. --JonTheMon 12:44, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Glyph of Lesser Energy only works when normal energy level would already suffice

I have trouble with the Glyph of lesser Energy.

I press C to target some roaming single Elemental.

My character's energy level is at -60%, but still 22.

The Glyph costs 2 energy and promises -12 energy needed for the next two spells.

I press Glyph. and my Energy lowers to 17. OK, ready to spell.

I press Quickening Zephyr which would normally need 25, but I reckon with with 25-12: only 13.

All I get is the refuse boing.

Then I press Ice Spikes which needs 15, now 15-12: 3, and that works. My energy diminishes by 3 only.

It seems that the Glyph of Lesser Energy is only applied if one's normal energy level would also be sufficient for the use of a spell.

Considering the Glyph to be a last resort and life saver in situations where one is already weakened I cannot find this fair. 15:45, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Quickening Zephyr is a Nature Ritual. Glyph of Lesser Energy works on spells only. --fraught · (talk)
Another point is that Quickening Zephyr causes all your skills to cost 30% more energy to cast, so I'm not quite sure why you'd want to drop that spirit when you've got 60% DP and are already having energy problems.  :o\ --Dragon nataku 04:00, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

From the top of this page: 3. Please do not include your e-mail address. This is to prevent you from receiving spam emails. In related news, different GuildWars campaigns will do it differently, but they all have a tutorial area of some sort, so the manual isn't exactly vital to playing the game.

With the one you want to use it with, unless you want to use it on a PvP character. PvP Characters get to use any skill unlocked by any character on the account. PvE characters don't. Calor Talk 22:14, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Character Question

I am inquiring as to the name and any info I can get about the character on the original games cover, the woman with the white skin and white hair in the black leather outfit. I looked around and could not find anything, I also do not play the game since my comp can't run the game.

This infor would be greatly appreciated.

charr damage

What kind of damage does more to charr? Cold, fire, slashing… -- 01:21, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

There really aren't any damage types that will do more damage to Charr. However, if you have a weapon that includes the suffix of Charrslaying, that will increase the damage. --User Tero Gein sig.jpgtero 02:49, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Several keys for one skill?

I have read on the Kilroy Stonekin's punch out extravaganza discussion page, that several buttons can be programmed to ONE skill... I have attempted many different methods to make this so but nothing seems to be working, I am not sure if I'm missing something or what but this is becoming a rather perplexing deal to me... a little bit of help would be great! :) 03:12, 27 August 2008 (UTC) Needing Name

You will need a programable/macro keyboard (such as the G15) and/or some special software to perform this function.- TheRave User TheRave sig.jpg 06:00, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually, you just need to go into the in-game Options (F11 on the keyboard), and set keys in the Controls section. Any command can be set to multiple keys, so long as those keys are all unused.
I believe what you're trying to do is the "Get Up" skill, or whatever it's called? You just need to set a few (probably only two) buttons to activate Skill Slot 8. Another suggestion, might I add, is a technique I personally use; click the skill icon, AND press the skill button. Since I generally use a combination of mouse-click and keyboard commands to activate skills, it works quite fast if you do them both at once. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 07:22, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Go through Menu > Options (F11) > Control.
Find the one called "Action: Use Skill 8" (not exactly sure about the name cause I can't access Guild Wars right now).
Click inside the field below "Type a new key for this action:" and assignate a few Keys to your Skill 8.
Check Options for more help--NIN37 00:01, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

pre and post?

I'm wanting to find better armor than Krytan armor but when I ask about it, people say you can't get anything else in "pre". What is the pre and post mean and how do I move ahead to get better stuff? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

1) Please sign your comments (type four ~ thingies) 2) "Pre" refers to "pre-searing," where as "post" would be "post-searing." You are in pre-searing at the moment. The Searing is an event that occurs after you join the Ascalon Academy (which you can only do after you acquire a secondary profession and speak to Sir Tydus in Ascalon City). After The Searing you will get to the real part of the game (pre-searing is meant to be a tutorial. An incredibly long one, but a tutorial nonetheless). Any other information I could give you would count as spoilers and I try not to give those unless its specifically requested (which you could get by searching things on this site anyway). --Dragon nataku 04:52, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Starting the game over

Hello, I am new to Guild Wars. How do I start the game over from the beginning? -- 17:44, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

this sounds like you bought a used account. if that's the case, you can simply delete all existing characters. the only thing that will stay are account-wide achievements like faction, ranks and account titles. if you're just overall looking for some startup tips, i'd recommend just following the storyline of your campaign ^^ if i'm totally wrong with all this, please tell me :) - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 17:54, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

I cannot save screenshots or builds

Somehow i cannot store any screenshots or builds in my GW folders. How can I solve this problem?--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Is it coming up with any kind of error message when attempting to save them? If not are you sure you are looking the correct place? When taking the screenshot it shows the location where it is saved. This could be in a subfolder in the main Guild Wars folder or it could be in a Guild Wars folder in your "My Documents" folder. Check the location which the game says it is saving.- TheRave User TheRave sig.jpg 15:09, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Lemme guess, you just upgraded to Vista? Same thing happened to me. Vista doesn't save them in the GuildWars folder in Program Files, unlike XP. Like TheRave said, check your Documents folder, specifically C: => Users => (the folder with the name of the user you use) => Documents => GuildWars => Screens (or Templates for builds). If you're transferring screenshots/builds you've had before, you'll have to take a screenshot ingame to create the folder (doesn't matter of what) and then delete that screenshot you just took and move all of your previous screenies into the folder. Same with builds. I'm pretty sure manually creating the folder (i.e., outside of GuildWars game) yourself won't work. Also, like TheRave said, your game will always show you the file path in green text whenever you take a screenie. I hope that helps! --Dragon nataku 16:07, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
If it's actually giving you an error message when you try to save, post that here. It's possible that your Screens and Templates folders are "read-only" or something of the sort, preventing the game from saving new files there. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:53, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

oh, ya, if you need sig of infection, you'll have to do The Hunting of the Charr, which doesn't take place in sacnoth valley. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 02:52, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, but you can get it from him on Sacnoth Valley immediately after completing Falling Out, and The Hunting of the Charr takes place just inside Rragar's Menagerie, which he is just outside the entrance of at the end of Falling Out. Completing Falling Out makes him spawn in Dalada Uplands, just outside the entrance of Doomlore Shrine. -- Gordon Ecker 03:01, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

birthday gifts

hello there i was just wondering if there was a way to tel exactly how old your character is if so please tell me --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Sharkantos (talk).

No. The /age command only gives the age in months. -- Gordon Ecker 07:02, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
I get the feeling the /age command is close enough to the answer Sharkantos was looking for, actually. Sure, it only goes in months after a certain point, but that generally gets you close enough; at the very least, you know you'll be getting your birthday present within the month, if it reads 11, 23, or 35 months old. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 10:42, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Monk Monument Armor

Can Monument Monk Armor be dyed?The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 14:03, August 31, 2008 (UTC).

All armor can be dyed. There are some (very few) individual armor pieces that the dye has no effect, for instance the Male Monk Monument sandals will remain the same.- TheRave User TheRave sig.jpg 14:07, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Can't all armor be dyed? Whether it looks good in the colour is another question but it should be able to be. --Kakarot Talk 14:09, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, the only armour examples I know offhand that can't be dyed are things like Glacial Gauntlets and the Blindfold. Maybe some others, dunno. Of course, I have a feeling that TheRave means you can dye those sandals but the colour won't change at all, like if you dye Chaos Gloves black/white (as opposed to any other colour), whereas the other two I mentioned I think just don't dye at all (not sure though as I have not bothered acquiring those myself  :op ) --Dragon nataku 15:16, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
