Can i run 2 games of GW on same comp? If more than one way, please list all. Thanks. Sledj 08:12, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

There are at least two ways you can do this...
  1. Use GWx2. This is a third-party program which is mostly harmless, but it lacks an instruction manual so you'll kinda have to figure it out by yourself. (There is also a thread at GWG you can try.)
  2. Another way involves using regedit.exe and editing the Windows registry to allow two copies of GW to run. Not recommended unless you know what you're doing.
  3. If I remember correctly, people have also got it to work by messing with the GW.dat and GW.exe, but I don't know what that entails.
I don't have any of the links handy at the moment, unfortunately. Vili User talk:Vili 08:23, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Keep in mind that ArenaNet does not promote the use of any 3rd party program, and will not provide any support if you use it. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 05:00, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Gaile Gray (used to?) use it, so I trust it. >.> Vili User talk:Vili 05:02, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Correction: I do not use third party programs. I have two computers; if there are occasions where I need access to two accounts simultaneously -- for instance, to move an item from one account to another -- I log in on both accounts. But it's one game/one account/one computer for me. Third-party programs give me the willies. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:51, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
I've been using it for years - very handy. [1] but do not use the other "application" on that page... --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 21:16, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Well that Page tries to download Malicious Software to your COmputer so I wouldnt trust it at all nor use ANY software from there lol. --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 18:39, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Option #2, to edit the registry entries for Guild Wars to be able to run two versions of the client at once ... that simply sounds like the best option here. That does not involve changing GW.exe or GW.dat nor does it involve third-party programs (which is basically like asking for trouble in most cases).

How to tell if my guild wars is 2008 or not??

i got guild wars from a friend who played the trial version and i dont know when he purchesed this game so i bought it and i was wondering how to tell as id like to get mox in the game--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:99.196.174.141 (talk).

Check out the recruitment section of the MOX page. There it describes you have to have all 3 campaigns and be at least level 10. If you're still not sure try going to one (or all) of the locations listed where you can find him to see if he is there.- TheRave talk (talk) 06:11, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

hordes of darkness

i done the mission but i didnt get the skill in reward .can i do it again? there is no mark over the priest.nitx--194.110.177.210 03:48, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

If you go into a Junundu, you should see Junundu Siege on your skillbar. It's not formally given out as a skill reward. Vili User talk:Vili 05:02, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

so its not possible to use it only when you are a junundu?--194.110.177.210 06:51, 17 December 2008 (UTC)nitx

You can only use the skill while in the Junundu. (would be rather imba otherwise) Vili User talk:Vili 06:54, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

A Skill I purchased from Hero Trainer Disappeared (Cry Of Pain- was the skill).

I need help figuring out what happened to the skill I purchased for my hero. It cost me a hero skill point and is no longer in the trainers inventory "Libeh (Command Post)" after I purchased it it never showed up in my Hero's skills. Its not available for either heros that have Mesmer as secondary profession or primary one like Gwen either. What can I do to correct this?--Blueberry Jam 11:30, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Cry of Pain is a PvE only skill, and as such cannot be used on a hero. If you switch your own secondary to mesmer, you'll find it under Sunspear title track skills.--Pyron Sy 11:35, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Wow thanks for the explanaition. Thats kind weird though why do the hero skill trainers sell skills that dont work on heros? It makes no sence at all.--Blueberry Jam 04:43, 18 December 2008 (UTC) Of course it was spelled out in the text above the choices, I should have payed attention but id say it would make more sence to put it under the regular skill trainer if heros cant use it.--Blueberry Jam 04:49, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Becoming a Kurzick ?

how do i make myself a kurzick so i can start a guild--Dkweed 00:19, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

You start a Guild first by talking to a Guild registrar, and then you talk to these guy for the alliance.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 01:14, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
You only need allegiance to the Kurzicks or Luxons to form or join an alliance, you don't need it to form a guild. After you've formed a guild, the guild leader can make the guild join the Kurzicks by talking to the Kurzick Ambassador in House zu Heltzer or join the Luxons by talking to the Luxon Ambassador in Cavalon. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 02:16, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

skill nerfing

Why do you keep messing with skills and making them useless, ie shadow form you made it so that you delt less damage while you had shadow form up I could live with this but then you completely messed it up so that you can't really use it even for running. This is one of the few ways i know how to make money on GW to get new armor or skills. can you please fix it back at least to its last state????--76.22.126.223 01:52, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Amulet of the Mists

I just completed the Imperial Sanctum mission and after receiving the Amulet of Mists, I was looking at the various items i could get with it and accidentally double clicked on an item i didnt. Is there any way i can get this fixed or am i out of luck.--75.176.187.153 05:09, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Sadly, no. You're out of luck unless you have a different character complete Factions for the first time or buy another amulet from another player. --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 05:11, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
You could also get lucky perhaps, and find another player who'd want to trade for your new weapon, or buy it. You could probably get about an even trade one-for-one for the item you did want, if you can find someone who has it and wants to get rid of it. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:59, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

First you need to go to a Pet tamer to get rid of your current pet. Then, you can look at the list of pet types here and find one you want, and look at its article to see where to get it. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 17:55, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Do note that aside from damage type, all pets have the same stats and damage, which is based off your own beast Mastery attribute. Don't expect any new pet to outdamage your current Warthog, if that's the problem you're having. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 19:05, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Also, you might want to train your pet to increase its level, and by that its health, armor and damage output. WhyUser talk:Why Are We Fighting 20:04, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
There's also the manner of training, too. There is some slight difference between the final builds ("Dire", "Hearty", "Elder", etc.) based on how much "care" you give it (i.e., Healing, and so forth).

It should be important to note that you will have to do both Arborstone (Kurzick) and Boreas Seabed (Luxon) before you're allowed to choose a side to continue with. Just saying this because some people come to the conclusion that you shouldn't need to do Boreas Seabed (as it's Luxon) to get into the Kurzick areas. --kaheiyeh 10:27, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

about weapons and items droppings

how come i killed the boss like at least several times and they won't drop any weapon or item can anyone explain or know about that? please? 173.33.143.42 00:47, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

You often have to kill a boss several dozens of times before they will drop a green item, and other times you can kill them once. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 00:49, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Also note that party size affects drop rate; if you're using a team of yourself and eight computer-controlled Heroes or Henchmen, they technically get some of the drops, which will never show up for you. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 14:45, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Can a icon be removed from your armor?--68.9.156.165 03:34, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Are you referring to insignia and / or runes? You have three options. First, you can overwrite them with new runes or insignia, which always destroys the original rune. Second, you can remove them with an Expert Salvage Kit or Superior Salvage Kit, never destroys the rune or insignia, but has a risk of destroying the armour. Third, you can use a Perfect Salvage Kit, which always removes the runo or insignia without any risk of destroying the armour. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 04:23, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

You only get a present when each Character reaches 12 months. Your account age is irrelevant.- TheRave talk (talk) 16:16, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Most of the other major towns in Eye of the North have Hero Skill Trainers. Alternatively your heroes can use any skills you have unlocked on your account.

Okay I havnt explained properly ... when you check a title for the EOTN such as Asura title and go outside of the town the status in the upper left coner does not appear and if i change titles then the new one checked does not show either.

The Title_(skill_type) need to be activated by talking to the correct npc once you reach level 1. For example for Asuran Edification you need to talk to Lexx in Rata Sum. -- Inspired to ____ 20:24, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Title (skill type)? You have to "obtain" them.
Once you get to level 1, talk to same NPC who offers the storybooks. They'll offer you these passive skills. --NIN37 20:26, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Random Drops

My dilemma is I want to get a fiery dragon sword while training so I can level up my original character while getting a great weapon for a new one. I looked up how to get a Fiery Dragon Sword and the most promising way was a random drop in a part of Kryta. My main question being if something is acquired by random drop does this apply to all enemies in the area? And if not how do you tell which ones may more likely drop the desired item? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.59.150.21 (talk • contribs) at 05:16, December 22, 2008 (UTC).

Generally speaking, foes will drop weapons that are associated with their profession (ie. warriors drop swords, axes, hammers, shields, etc.) This is not always true, but generally. So if you want a warrior weapon, fight warrior class foes. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 05:54, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

hero skills

hi any one know why when i run a mission my heroes won't use skills like i want them to.

they use other skills instead of the skills i put for them so, should i keep clicking the skills for them? or find different skills for their use.

please anyone? help me with this question... 173.33.143.42 23:58, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

If you click a skill once, a green check mark appears on it, and the hero will cancel whatever else he/she is doing and activate that skill as long as a valid target is in range. If you click the skill a second time right away, the check mark goes away and the hero won't use the skill. Note that heroes will automatically stop maintaining maintained enchantments unless you shift+click the skill (to disable it) and have the hero manually cast it. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 00:32, 24 December 2008 (UTC)


it's me again and i have another question to ask. i want to know how to get my heroes to use the skills i want them to. because i put different skills for my heroes and they don't use most of them they only use two or three of the skills i equip on their skill bar.... i want them to use the enchantments and stances i apply for them 173.33.143.42 00:41, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Pretty much the same answer as above. In the hero's skill panel, click the skill you want to have the hero use it (in the options, you can also set keyboard shortcuts for your hero's skills). Aside from that, you're reliant on the hero AI to use the skills themselves, and heroes generally use skills differently then humans, so you'll probably need to adjust their builds a bit if you want them to play more effectively. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:33, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Be aware that heroes will treat some skills differently. If you wish them to maintain an enchantment, you have to disable the skill (shift/click on their bar) and manually apply it to the party member of choice. If you leave it active, they drop it or apply it erroneously. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 20:55, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

You could try talking to Duke Barradin. If that doesn't work, you can abandon the quest and re-take it. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 22:45, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
Talking to Duke Barradin will give you another Urn if you don't have one already and still havethe quest active (he'll complain about it being something of some value, but that does not affect the game).
Multiples Urns can be purchased this way (talk to NPC, get item, put in Storage, talk again, get other item, put in Storage).
Having multiple Urns allows a player to get multiple Ashes (have to interact with item multiple times, though). Many players do so and sell extra Ashes to other players who do not want to do the quest themselves. --NIN37 03:47, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Zoning through any portal should resurrect your pet, though keep in mind that you actually need to have your pet with you (charm animal needs to be on your skill bar) in order to give your pet to a tamer. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(talk) 08:59, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Questions and Information

Eye of the North is now decorated for WINDERSDAY!

Some of you have the same question i have. Are the hats still coming? I dont even think they have come yet.

Beacause i left my computer on all last night in Lion"s Arch and did not get a hat!

If you have the expansion pack. on the hill in Lion"s Arch there is Scribes they give you missions to get a wepon from them at the end. To me the Undead Longbow looks best out of them all. So i would go Undead, Charr, Murasaat , then Tengu. These in order of best to me.

Cannot Obtain Jora as Heroe

I finished the quest "curse of the nornbear" twice successfully but it did not unlock Jora as a Heroe. What gives?

Read what to do to obtain Jora? Did you do "Tracking the Nornbear".--Silverleaf User Silverleaf sig.pngDon't assume, Know! 18:15, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

How Guild Wars was created

Hey guys, i have been palying GW for almost 3yrs now, and i have been wondering, did ArenaNet use Blizzard employee's when creating Guild Wars?--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:24.64.160.185 (talk).

Taking over a city

moved from Help:Ask a wiki question

Hey!

How can i take over a city when im a alliance leader, im click in the city but nothing happens...

Thanks

22:33, 29 December 2008 (UTC)~ Jonathan

Your alliance needs to have a ridiculous amount of faction, and only a handful of cities on either side can be controlled. Control of cities is updated either daily or weekly, I'm not sure which. calor (talk) 22:35, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
And by "ridiculous amount of faction," he means more than 7 million (if you end up controlling a town that usually belongs to the opposite side but your side now controls because of winning a lot in AB), and more than 18 million if you want to control one of your own side. Have fun with that. --Dragon nataku 03:14, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Town control is updated each border-shift, which is about, once every three hours? And it isn't that rediculous, I've owned loads of towns :P WhyUser talk:Why Are We Fighting 12:47, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

pets

how do i get rid of my old pet and get a new one? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:70.162.125.180 (talk).

Make sure your pet is with you (i.e., have Charm Animal in your skill bar), then talk to a Tamer and ask him if he has any interest in your pet. He will then take it and you can tame a new one. Please note that your new one will not automatically be at the same level as the one you abandoned. --Dragon nataku 03:10, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

my current guild

they never answer my questions ingame and kick me out and invite me again can you guys help me out? --68.5.52.36

What, exactly, do you want us to help you with? If you want answers to your questions, you can use the handy dandy search box on the left-hand side of the screen, or post a question about the game here. If you want us to punish your guild or something, however... there is no GuildWars police. It's their guild and they are allowed to kick you out if they want to. If they keep reinviting you and kicking you out... perhaps you should find a new guild to be in? Just a suggestion... --Dragon nataku 01:34, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
There are literally thousands of guilds out there looking for players. You might try looking at Category:Recruiting guilds, and see if you can find one that fits your playstyle and personality better than your current one. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 02:00, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Joining Guild

hi any one . i play these game so long but i don't know how to joy to the guild any one can tell me how and where i can find thank's o-o --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:173.33.143.42 (talk).

Please take a look at the question above yours. --Arduinna talk 10:56, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
To join a guild you need to be invited by the leader or an officer of a guild, you can then press G (to open the guild window) and accept the invitation. To get an officer or leader to invite you, the best thing to do is to ask them.
Either in game, there are normally a lot of guilds recruiting in the first big city in each campaign (Ascalon City, Kamadan and Shing Jea Monastery), try going to one of these places and asking to join a guild.
Alternatively, as Wyn says, try looking on the wiki. There are a lot of Guilds on the wiki, all with contact information, find one you like (preferably one that is Recruiting) and contact them to ask if you can join.- TheRave talk (talk) 11:31, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Mapping a Certain Area in Cantha

I'm using texmod but still cant get there.

It's an area(portal and surronding area) to the left of Vizunah Square(Local).

I can't get to map that bit(god I've tried) and it may impact on my 99% position just a bit!!

Do I need to get to the VS LQter?

Cheers --91.194.221.225 12:11, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Any small amount won't impact that much on fully mapping the continent. Its said that each continent has more than 101% so don't worry about it. If you could provide a screen shot of the exact area that might help. Have you tried coming at it from Bukdek Byway or form Xaquang Skyway?- TheRave talk (talk) 12:21, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Cant do a pic right now but its the area above what appears to be a river, immediateley above the portal. I guess it would be the Bukdek Byway map area, immeadiatley below and to the right of the area label of BB on the map--91.194.221.225 12:37, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
I would assume that its Bukdek Byway you need to uncover it from, but without a screenshot I can't be sure.- TheRave talk (talk) 12:52, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Sounds like the entrance to The Undercity from Bukdek Byway, have a look at The Undercity article, in particular the How to enter the Undercity map image, I think this should lead you to uncover the section you're asking about --BramStoker (talk, contribs) 13:16, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Faction profession not available as secondary in nightfall

I recently recieved GW nightfall as an xmas present and began a dervish character. I wanted his secondary to be ritualist so i purchased factions but it still wont give me the option of Ritualist as secondary profession in the quest "choose a secondary profession" in Nightfall. This was extremly frustrating to me because i felt like i wasted money. Do i need to connect the two campaigns by doing a quest before i can achieve the faction professions as secondarys? i havent even tried to get nightfall/faction professions in pre-searing prophicies as secondarys and this experience worries me. any tips? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.224.43.49 (talk • contribs) at 18:19, 31 December 2008 (UTC).

You can't get it as an initial secondary profession in Nightfall. You can change to it after you have completed the quest Hunted!. See Professions#Changing_secondary_professions. You also can't get NF or Factions professions in pre searing Prophecies. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:38, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Wyn is indeed correct but please note you must have attached the campaigns under 1 account aswell. I know that seems somewhat obvious but you would be surprised by how many people don't do this. But yeh as Wyn said, complete the quest hunted and then you will be able to change your secondary profession to whatever you wish. Although you will need to talk to a profession changer. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 18:43, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
