Cold damage vs. Piercing Damage

I have a 2 weapons, one has a rune with cold damage, and one without that does piercing damage. I would like to know what is the difference? Is there any way to help those produce more damage, as in skills. If there is a way to enhance it with skills I would like to know please :) 22:26, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

There's no inherent difference, but rangers have more armor against elemental damage like cold damage, while warriors have more armor against physical damage like piercing damage. Certain enemies have weaknesses or strengths to different damage types as well, check the links for lists. There's no skills that "boost damage type x", but there are a few skills that interact with certain types of damage, like Conjure Frost, Barbs, and Mark of Pain.

hello on the Hall of Monuments Reward Calculator


what is the "Accounts Linked" mean?


11 Weapon Statues is Full Display

is that mean one character can only add 11 Weapon

so how can i add 15 Weapon?-- 07:18, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

I do not know what the "Account Linked" means, beyond a bonus 3 points. As for the display, if you have more than 11 weapons, you can cycle through the ones you are displaying. When you add more, they just add onto the available list of possible display items. G R E E N E R 08:35, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Accounts linked means that your account has eotn + all three major campaigns. (As Greener suggests, it's basically a free 3 points, since you are unlikely to progress very far in the HoM rankings without it.)
  • You can add 15 weapons (above), but any beyond 11 won't contribute more towards your HoM rank.

Did anyone els get screwed by the Hall of Monuments

Moved from: Feedback:Guild Wars mechanics suggestions [1]

Did anyone els get screwed by the Hall of Monuments I played for hundreds of hours, and spent millions of GW gold On Items that I quote, “you will get something” for in the Hall of monuments‘, it may not be the specific item but “something”. I’m referring to the 20 armors I have in my hall of monuments’ that cost me millions of dollars & hours & hours; spent in your terrible trade system, only to find out I get credit for only 7 of the 20. That’s 13 armors that I never would have went after because they are ugly and useless. I only went after said armor because I was under the impression I would get something for it. I’m also referring to weapons. The 33 weapons I collected & I only need 15 for in my hall. Another amount of wasted time and money to collect weapons’ that I find disgustingly ugly and never would have spent time acquiring. Again more time spent with your horrible trade system. Then to top it all off after all of this time and money spent on the weapon and armor, now I have to get 30 more useless, unusable, overpriced; mini pets instead of at least somewhat ugly but useful armor or weapons‘. Thanks to your hall of monuments point system, all I needed to collect was the 7 armors and 15 weapons making the other 13 armors and 18 weapons a complete and total waste of my time and money. I cannot tell you how discouraged this makes me feel and if GW2 is going to follow thru with this same logic then I feel very disheartened. I know that you develop this system to cater to the lesser players of the game and not for hard core players like me but remember it’s the hard core players that buy all of your extra’s and influence your profit margin. You would think that you would keep us in mind when you decide to screw us out of our time. I’m in no way complaining about the items you are giving in the hall I don’t really care, just as long as I get something for the hard work that I did!! ( I have well over 10K hours invested in this game only to be treated like this ) If I can receive some response on what thay were thinking when thay decided to screw me and waste my time. I would appreciate the information, maybe even resolve the problem by changing the Hall of Monuments system “ not that I think that will ever happen”

I got screwed over too. I complained about stuff and they banned my main account. ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 05:27, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Firstly, "millions of dollars"? Real money gold trading is really not good it ruins the game for everyone. Secondly you can't blame them in anyway. You choose to assume that the rewards would be for collecting/doing everything. Unfortunately for you your assumption was wrong. You should never assume anything. They said that the HoM would provide rewards they never said what rewards or for what so they completely stuck to their word. It was your choice to collect everything you have. You set yourself goals and you met them. Just be happy with that since that's what life is about.- TheRave talk (talk) 09:55, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

I did not use "real world money" I used money "earned" with hours of play, thats why it is such a slap in the face. I can blame them, I didn't "assume" anything. They specifically said "you may not actually get the actual item {sword} or {title} but you will get something" This was on their official web page and on Wiki but it was "conveniently" removed when the Hall of Monuments was released and why would they allow you to put theses items into the hall if your not going to get anything for it, other than showing others. Which you can just do while your in a party. I wouldn't call that assuming I would call that factual. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't life also about not making promises and breaking them? Life can be about more than just one thing "goal setting" then end result of setting my goals was a reward which I didn't receive. If this were to happen in any other part of life where a promise is made and broken it would be unjust, but because it is a video game I should just be happy with my life lesson? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Rockman (talk).

Anet never said your HoM-stuff would get translated on a 1-to-1 basis, but rather via a point system. That left many room for interpretation, and I guess you picked the wrong options for the HoM in hindsight. There was no promise, there is no promise broken. Had you waited with collecting until after the calculator was released, you would've known exactly what to collect. You took the gamble of starting acquiring stuff before details were known, and it turned out rather worse than you expected. -- Arduin talk 11:50, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
@Rockman. What I really don't get here is your motivation. Do you play one video game just in ordre to unlock something in another video game? .. and then why would you in turn play that game? You use phrases such as: ""I played for hundreds of hours, and spent millions of GW gold On Items"", ""just as long as I get something for the hard work that I did"" and ""I have well over 10K hours invested in this game"". You make it sound like playing Guild Wars is some kind of tedious work that you HAVE to do to move on to the next game of tedious work. This is leisure ... it's something you should do to have fun and relax. This is not life ... it's just a video game. --Manassas User Manassas Mannysig.png 12:37, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

If you want your character to learn an unlocked skill you will need a Skill Tome. The skill tome has to be of the same kind as the profession of the skill you want to learn. Also if the skill is an Elite Skill you will need an Elite Skill Tome.- TheRave talk (talk) 13:45, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

How long will Guild Wars be around after the release of 2.

I don't think I could let the Original Guild Wars go, at all, I love it, and still have much to do, how long after the release of Guild Wars 2 will Guild Wars be around? I'd hope for as long as people are still active, I know there will be people that will still play it, and I know that you bring in enough money to keep up the servers.

It will definitely still be active concurrently with GW2. You'll still be able to do achievements in GW and have them register in GW2. No one ever said any kind of end date for GW. Roar! Poki#3 (talk) 02:48, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Black moa chick

hi please can u help me. i recently aquired a black moa chick and mistakenly put it in the wrong place in my hall of monuments. the twit that i am i put it in with my pets. after realising my mistake i went and got another black moa chick with another character. for some reason i can't put it in to the hall of monuments in the fellowship place. the question is how can i put a second black moa chick in to a different place please can u help... thanks

You can only put the Black Moa Chick in the minipet statue called Devotion. Once you do that, itll be there for that character and your account. It cant be put into the Fellowship place because thats only for animal companions, black moa chick is a Minipet. You should be able to put another black moa chick into your Devotion place on another char, but not into the Fellowship place DemonicFahrirDesecrate Enchantments.jpg 10:32, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Chant and shout doubt

Chant and shout work even with minion and spirits?

Usually not. They usually specify "Target non-spirit ally" as well. As a general rule, no. In fact spirits are exempt from pretty much all buffs unless otherwise stated. --BriarUser Briar Sig 3.jpgThe Spider 18:40, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Forgot to mention, Minions on the other hand do usually receive buffs from shouts wards etc. --BriarUser Briar Sig 3.jpgThe Spider 18:41, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
You have to read the skill text. "Party" is referring only to your main group of players, heroes and henchmen. Ally is anything allied with you. This includes spirits, pets, minions, quest NPCs etc. Most skills also have a "non-spirit" clause, so they won't work on any spirit (most often Ritualist and Ranger rituals). Whenever a chant or shout works on allies or not changes on a skill by skill basis. Roar! Poki#3 (talk) 23:54, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Weapons Requirements

I would like to know if I can exceed a weapons limits if I put in more attributes that it requires. For example, I have a weapon that requires 9 Dagger Mastery and does 7 - 17 damage. If I put in more than 9 dagger mastery, does it affect the damage limit on the weapon? Please and Thank You 16:20, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

(taken from the article on it)...
"Dagger Mastery increases the damage you do with daggers and your chance to inflict a critical hit when using a dagger. There is a 2% chance per rank of Dagger Mastery that attacks from your daggers will double strike. ..."
If you put more points into dagger mastery, you inflict critical hits more often and you get a +2% chance to hit twice with your daggers for every rank, i do not think it ups your damage, though.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 17:15, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Every Weapon Mastery increases the damage and critical strike chance as you increase the attribute. If you don't meet the weapon requirement, then the weapon will be treated like it's a starter weapon (see Starter Daggers damage wise.
So if you have 8 DM (Dagger Mastery), then you'll have a 1-3 damage weapon + extra damage from 8 DM. 9 DM will give you a 7-17 + 9 DM in damage. 15 DM will give you a 7-17 weapon + 15 DM extra damage. Roar! Poki#3 (talk) 19:15, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Not quite. If you have 12 points in the required attribute, you'll do the amount of damage listed on the weapon. Having fewer than 12 points means you'll do less damage, while having more than 12 means you'll do slightly more. If you don't meet the requirement, you'll do drastically less damage. With 9 Dagger Mastery, your daggers will do 5-13 damage on their own, but the real reason to boost Dagger Mastery is to increase the effectiveness of your Dagger Mastery skills, which inflict much more damage than the daggers themselves. So yes, boosting your weapon mastery is an effective way of doing more damage. --Irgendwer 19:30, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
There is another reason, why it's recommended to have at least +1 attribute more than required: because of Weakness. There are many areas, esp. in Nightfall, where you can meet lot of foes inflicting this condition. With -1 of minimal requirement for attacking weapon, its direct damage will become roughly like a starter weapon. With -1 of requirement for shield or focus, its AR or energy will decrease twice. As a result, such character will suffer from Weakness much more than a character with attribute points above the requirements. Only if you are sure that the attributes will be not decreased (like when you farm in well known area), you can set exactly the same attribute for weapon (and even take intentionally a low-requirement weapon/focus/shield) and free some points for other attribute(s) which are especially important for chosen build. But it's not a common case. --Slavic 21:45, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Poki got it right. Don't listen to Irgendwer. I don't know why people still think that. -- 05:54, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Nevermind, I misunderstood what he meant. Exceeding the requirement doesn't improve the weapon you have, but having a higher mastery level does improve the damage you do. -- 05:59, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Unyielding Aura

I would like to know how to use Unyielding Aura, it says that a random party member will be resurrected but when I try to dismiss the skill none of my party members (heroes) are healed. Is there a reason why it isn't working? 17:08, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

"Elite Enchantment Spell. While you maintain this enchantment, your Monk spells heal for +15...51...60% more Health. When this enchantment ends one random other party member is resurrected with full Health and Energy and teleported to your location."
May i ask where it says that party members are healed when it is dismissed? :o--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 17:10, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

It says when the enchantment skill ends, so I used dismiss instead. It says when it ends, what does it mean by when the skill ends because it doesn't have a time limit. 18:12, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Dismissed = Ends = Removed, they're all basicly the same word/mechanic, If your party member is dead, dismissing(which is also "Ends") UA would bring him back to life at your location.--NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 18:15, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Unyielding Aura has a limited range, although for some reason it's not stated in the skill. The person you want to resurrect must be within earshot (basically the same size as the aggro bubble. UA resurrects every time it ends by any way: You stop maintaining it manually, run out of energy to support it, it gets removed by an enemy or even if you die. Roar!

Eye of the North is not a full campaign. It is an expansion. As such, your characters can travel to Eye of the North once they reach a certain level. See Guild_Wars_Eye_of_the_North#Access for more info. G R E E N E R 03:56, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
Guild Wars: The Complete Collection does come with all four games, but you cannot create a character immediately to Eye of the North as Greener explained above.

When I have a hero, why does he not have any extra skills?

I have a M.O.X and I have him set as a Dervish/Monk, but I only have the Dervish skills. I play a lot with a family member of mine, and they have their M.O.X set as a Dervish/Monk as well. We have had them the same length of time, but he has twice as many skills on his, and has Monk skills whereas I do not. Why is this? I am barely a level behind him, (16 versus 17) and my character is a RAnger/Necromancer. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 02:01, 17 November 2010 (UTC).

Your heroes have all the (non PvE-only) skills you have unlocked on your account. So buy a few Dervish skills with one of the characters on your account or unlock them at a Priest of Balthazar by spending Balthazar Faction. Your character doesn't have to be a primary Dervish, it can be secondary and later you can change your own secondary professions. Roar! Poki#3 (talk) 01:52, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
To extend this into the monk skills: You can purchase monk skills with any of your characters on your account to unlock them, and all of your heroes on your account will have access to those skills too, so long as they're either Mo/X or X/Mo for a profession. Another NPC you can look for is a Hero skill trainer. G R E E N E R 02:02, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
Most probably the person you are playing with is Monk primary or secondary, so his/her account unlocked some Monk skills for his hero to use. You are R/N so no Monk skills would have been unlocked for your account. -- Arduin talk 14:47, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Joining a party

Why, when I accept an invitation do I so often become the leader and have to leave as I dont know the mission? Other people have noticed this too. Someone asked me why when he invited people they became the leader. It usually happens when someone is trying to form a party and the first person they ask appears at the top of the party list instead of taking the next available space down. Thanks Jay

The methods used by the game to determine who is the leader can be confusing. It tends to be based on two things: 1) Who does the inviting, and 2) Who has more people in their party already. If the party sizes are equal, then the person who does the inviting tends to get priority as leader. Otherwise, I've seen some possible oddities.
As for the missions, if you are playing them in Prophecies then you have the ability to do the mission even if you have not reached that point in the story-line. Factions tends to block access to mission areas through the story-line if you're not ready to do them. Nightfall will change the location from an outpost to a mission outpost, indicating that you have reached the proper point in the story-line to do it. G R E E N E R 19:24, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it's a kind of inconsistency in party UI, because the party leader is not marked in any way. However, in quests/missions this usually affects only the cinematics, where leader is shown speaking to other NPCs. Another important thing is a map traveling, when only a leader can move all the party to new outpost. Besides this, all members are counted equal. When a party is forming, it's possible to set the leader intentionally, if leader has added some heroes before being invited while other players are alone. --Slavic 18:38, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Greener and Slavic I think I become leader because I normally have heroes, so will let them wait! Jay

run to lion's arch

i want to get to lion's arch but i don't know which cities/outposts i have to clear first. can anyone help??-- 02:04, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Where are you going to lions arch from, may i ask? --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon6.png 02:10, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
It depends where you are at the moment. I'm assuming ascalon. You can see a complete map here:
The Normal route for a full run (this isn't the storyline progression route, just a semi-direct run) is Ascalon, Piken Square, Grendich Courthouse, Yak's Bend, Ice Tooth Cave, Beacons Perch, Gates of Kryta, Lions Arch. The full run should take about 45 mins tops.
IF you are starting in Elona or Cantha however, clearly the route is vastly different. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 02:16, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
From my experience, for new Prophecies character the road to Grendich and especially to Yak's is the most hard part of this run, if a party consists only from henchmen, because the size is limited to 4 and foes along the road are much stronger than henchmen. In this case you can consider to do Nolani Academy mission, which teleports you directly to Yak's, next parts of run are noticeably easier. --Slavic 18:50, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
If you're not level 20 or don't have essential skills/equipment for running, you should consider doing Nolani Academy, followed by the two shiverpeak missions, Borlis Pass and Frost Gate. You will end up in Gates of Kryta, which is a short distance from Lion's Arch (you can also do that mission, which brings you directly to LA) ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 18:55, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Make sure you're wearing the armour at the time you interact with the pedestal, and that you have all of the pieces for the new armour.

yes it is one elementalist character that I am referring too, and I do have my tapestry up, and I was wearing the armor while trying to dedicate it.

Granite citadel armor is called granite citadel armor account wide. eg, monk granite citadel armor and ele armor are called differently, but for the purpose of hom, they are the same. check if u have any other granite citadel armor dedicated.

Scavenger hunt

Hi.I cant do the Scavenger Hunt and dont know why. I finnished the new quests with Thackery and Gwen(and listened to his proposell).And i completed W.I.K. But when i go out to Ice Cliffs he isnt there only a Dwarf?And i cant turn in honeycombs for candles either because he got to ask for the candles first says wiki.So what have i done wrong ?Is the quest gone after the other new quests is completed? Would be kind if someone could help me on this.Seargant Nitx-- 06:46, 23 November 2010 (UTC) do someone know?

If you have already seen the proposal, then you have passed by the opportunity to do the Scavenger Hunt, sorry. G R E E N E R 20:07, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Account hacked

Okay i recently got my account hacked,i contacted ncsoft support and they ask me for a bunch of personal info.I gave them my info,Except a few of my cd keys(i think i gave them to my brother in law because they had buddy keys on them and he threw them away after he used them)But i do infact have one cd key wich is from the original base game (prophices)Do you think one cd key alone will be enough to prove its my account? I mean why would someone hack my account then add all the expansions on it...LOL

If they asked for your password, you just led yourself into a phishing scam. In fact, I would be surprised that support hadn't asked you for your CD keys first off.
Anyway, I would ask Gaile about this to confirm, but I think one CD key would be enough. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png 08:05, 23 November 2010 (UTC)


I am not able to storm the garrison of Kodonur crossroads in Nightfall. How can I complete the mission? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Information can be found on the Kodonur Crossroads page. My initial guess would be that you have not freed all 6 of the centaurs before approaching the garrison. G R E E N E R 09:48, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

I can't visit my guild hall

moved from Guild Wars Wiki:Reporting wiki bugs

every time i try to visit my guild hall an error message will appear "Reattempting connection to the server (code=13)" even though i was able to visit other guild halls in my alliance except mines. Can anyone explain to me what this means and how to fix this issue. Thanks --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Pattymq82 (talk).

There seems to be some server issues sprouting up in Europe (so I'm guessing from reading talk pages). If your guild hall is handled by one of those servers, then that could be the cause. Network News should have information, though it is blank at the moment. You can also go to Error Code 13 support and pass on information to Anet. G R E E N E R 00:15, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

War in Kryta

Hello! I have completed the Asura Quest and I have been working on the scavenger hunt, I have taken all the items to Thackery except I didn't have the Hard Apple Cider. I finally got it after a couple of months, I gave it to Thackery and now he is asking for the other items all over again!! The only other thing I have in my quest log is Duncan the Black with the other four bosses defeated. Do I have to do the scavenger hunt all over again? 00:30, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

With the update to the War in Kryta quest, my guess is yes. G R E E N E R 01:47, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

I wrote earler regarding the scavengter hunt: I was told I may need to repeat the scavenger hunt. Rather then repeat it, because the items are so hard to come by, I was wondering if it would be better to just delete the "War on Kryta" and continue the game without it? 05:10, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

The War in Kryta is not a mandatory quest, though it does have an effect on which foes you will face in some areas of Kryta. The items for the scavenger hunt are not the easiest to find, but they are also not rare. Over time, you can likely gather them so that you are able to finish this aspect of the game. Hard Apple Cider is dropping now, the Honeycomb is created often enough in game through gifts from Nick, Chunk of Drake Flesh can be a bit frustrating but doable, and a Birthday Cupcake can be bought for relatively little from players. G R E E N E R 19:55, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

I have completed War in Kryta with one charactor. The second charactor cannot obtain the first three "wanted quests", which means the second charactor cannot do the missions leading to BFLA. The Second charactor has completed all the dialogue. The second charactor can get other "Wanted Quest" Why?

I am unable to access the Lions Arch Keep area. There is no quest for me at Lion's Gate. It says "you have been aproved for this area" but there is no quest there.Quest Log says-Asuran Allies completed.There is nothing to do in scavenger hunt.I can't figure out what I am doing wrong! 03:27, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

After completing Asuran Allies, did you return to the camp and watch the dialogue?--User Pyron Sy sig.png Pyron Sy 03:37, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes!! I did watch the dialogue in the wilderness area. I can't figure out how to get back there. The green star is still there. 04:06, 27 November 2010 (UTC) ____

This flowchart might be able to assist you in finding any areas of War In Kryta you've missed that may explain why you are not getting access to the first wanted quests.--Wingsy 19:16, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Large Equipment Pack

hello, I have just bought a large equipment pack and I was wondering how to use it. I can't store anything in it, and I don't know how to replace my small equipment pack. Please help me. 23:26, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Empty the small pack into your inventory or storage; move the small pack into a different storage place; equip large pack. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 23:28, 27 Nov 2010 (UTC)

Do wallows lay eggs?

Or are they born live? ZencowUser Ox rider Sig.png 03:21, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Ask a developer; players have no way of knowing that.
Also, please drop it here. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 3:28, 28 Nov 2010 (UTC)
The prominent tusks and other mammalian features leads me to believe they are born live rather than through oviposition. I hasten to indicate you might be better served by asking a professional cryptozoologist than the players of an MMO. –Jette 04:01, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Some mammals lay eggs. But yeah I'll ask the creature designer. ZencowUser Ox rider Sig.png 04:43, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

no emperor's voice

i have completed the abbadon mission with my factions does that exclude me from the emperors voice and the mission at kaenig city? ive made it to arborstone and can go no further....the emperor does not have anything for me after tahnnakai temple mission...did i miss a mission and if so where do i find it?-- 23:43, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

My suggestion would be to double-check your primary quests. After Tahnnakai Temple is the primary quest A Meeting With the Emperor, which is then followed by The Count's Daughter. You talk to the Emperor's Voice in Zin Ku Corridor. If your character is from another campaign, it does not affect this portion of the Factions campaign. G R E E N E R 01:07, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Guild Leader Character changes

If I delete the character my Guild was made under, will I still remain guild leader with another character?-- 01:01, 29 November 2010 (UTC)Kaya Wolfbane

Yes. Your account is the leader of the guild. G R E E N E R 01:04, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Pressing Enter Before Chatting

hello, I was wondering why you always have to press the "/" or "Enter" keys to start chatting because it drives me crazy typing suddenly without mistakenly pressing the "/" key and the "Enter" key. If you would be so kind as to please answer. 00:14, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

So you can use your keyboard for other things. — Raine Valen User Raine R.gif 0:19, 30 Nov 2010 (UTC)


I would like to know why i got a dishonerable status in Jade Quarry after reporting 2 leechers in the match this is the second time it has happened and i would like to know why, --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Check the Dishonorable Combatant System article. It says how you can get the status and points. Likely the system detected you were "grief-reporting".- TheRave talk (talk) 12:58, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
