Alliance Battles faction rewards

For some reason, I'm gaining the boosted faction rewards even as the losing team now... I wasn't paying much attention, but I could have sworn I was getting around 500, not 1500 faction per loss just a few days ago. Was this updated? --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:39, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Ah, that explains a lot then. I was in deep Luxon territory on Kurzick side, yeh. Never noticed the increased faction boost there; a guildmate pointed it out a few days ago, otherwise I would have never seen it. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:41, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Can I just check, does the new dynamic link thingy used on the Game Updates page mean it will no longer appear in Recent Changes or my Watchlist after game updates? No big issue I guess as there is always the link to the most recent update on the main page, but I must admit I rarely look at more than my watchlist. --Winters Blessing User Winters blessing sig.png 10:35, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, basically, since the Game updates page will not need to be edited for new items to appear. It's a shame for us watchlisters, but as you say the link should be easy to find anyway, as we also have "Guild Wars news" in the left column. :) - anja talk 10:55, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
I noticed the same thing myself. (I only look at my watchlist and maybe RC and didn't notice the game update.) Perhaps poke can inject some link into the watchlist for us lame-asses? -- CoRrRan (CoRrRan / talk) 12:03, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I was wondering why my watchlist didn't warn me of an update today. :D -- Gem (gem / talk) 15:45, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
uh yeah, you're right! I'll think about it :D poke | talk 21:03, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

DPL navbox error

The DPL navbox in the top right currently lists December 2007 twice. -- Gordon Ecker 09:50, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

 :/ The time parser extension is stupid.. 31st January 2008 - 2 months = 31st November 2007 - as there is no 31st November, it will display 1st December 2007 instead..
We could either ignore the fact that it will be wrong on each 31st or add nested time templates to correct that.. poke | talk 13:55, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Loading Screen Bug???

Yea. I just got the new update for today. I loaded up my character, finished the loading. Then i would normally do a quest or talk to my guild mates. However, the loading screen is still there. im not lying. I can pull up my guild chat (knowingly), i can see the mouse clicker go yellow and stuff. THIS IS WEIRD!!!!! Is this a bug or is ANet pulling the joke?! Sorry.

TitanSacranus 21:44, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like it loaded, but the loading screen graphic didn't disappear yet. I would suggest A.) waiting it out for a bit, might be a matter of time; B.) reboot your computer, perhaps your graphics card or RAM is going slow and getting in the way.
It's a bug I would say; generally stuff like that is related to your graphics card or computer in general. If the problem doesn't go away after a while, I would contact Support and see what they have to say; they're generally more experienced with system problems and other such things, and should be able to figure it all out. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:53, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Those support pages never help much. I'd suggest minimizing, then maximizing the guild wars window. Things like this happen when i use texmod, but it isn't anything major...

January 17th Update

Found a glitch: With the new hero skill update hero's wont relay spirits again until the first spirit drops it just sits there recharged with a check mark on it until the first spirit dies regardless if you set up the binding keys or if you just click the skill.

Lunar Fortunes

Just for the record, these were renamed before this update. I believe it was a couple days ago. 23:46, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I can confirm that as well; nobody seems to know when exactly it was updated, but it was changed at least a few days ago. --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 00:22, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Does this affect their functionality? I've got 2 stacks worth still left from last year! :) --BramStoker (talk, contribs) 13:13, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
They still work as they did last year but you won't get a rat miniature from them ;) That's probably the main reason for the own name that you still can get a minipet out of them. poke | talk 13:38, 7 February 2008 (UTC)


Everyone in my guild got reward points just now.

But it says I DONT GET ANY?


2/21 (or 21/2 for Europeans)

Bunch of updates. What are they? Calor Talk 20:03, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

I saw a few on the GW website. I'd post them here, but I'm not sure if we can copy directly from the actual site. I'll wait and see if they come up at some point. User-Wandering Traveler Sig.png Wandering Traveler 20:12, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
This wiki is an offshoot of the official website. I'll take a look. Calor Talk 20:13, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Fixed a texture on Cynn's dress... does that mean she's wearing normal underwear now? 21:40, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

I had noticed this previously on Cynn and had a screen shot (was deleted at some point). Her "underwear" and her dress were two separate entities whereas all the other henchman had a transparent texture behind their clothes. -elviondale (tahlk) 22:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Does this mean no more looking at Cynn's undies with the right camera angle? ;-) --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:BramStoker (talk).
Another update is that when you call a target, the target called and the skill used no longer show in teamchat. Just your name shows now. MiraLantis 22:51, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Is that an update, or a bug? Song of Purification.jpg Nicky 23:32, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Bug - it sends this to chat:

And that's all. -- 23:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Sweet, a bug that makes everyone repeat my name...^^Song of Purification.jpg Nicky 07:53, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

I smell cheese? So can we hurry with the update :P T1Cybernetic 20:45, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Slow!!!!! but I think it just ended the weekend thingy :p 20:50, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Fixed the bug with signposts so official site says--Dan Mocha 22:52, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Yes they finaly fix them :) now i can find my way around again without bringing my megatron powered flux capacitor complete with compass and defibrilating technology. (Its a bit heavy) T1Cybernetic 23:25, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
