Argh, yellow... it burns my eyes! — Rapta (talk|contribs) 12:51, 8 February 2007 (PST)

Change it into something good then :P ~ Kurd 03:00, 10 February 2007 (PST)

I've put up matching images of the emotes, in matching settings (in the boat at Hero's Ascent), with matching formatting. Hope it helps things look official =] The Ice Master 18:14, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

I was wondering if anyone could verify the rank 15 title name, as nobody currently has r14 to see it. Wrong information = bad information. Shard 20:48, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

The wolf could be improved, i could take a screenshot of mine if i had one --Defx 02:32, 23 May 2007 (EDT)


moved from Talk:Rank

I have changed the emotes subtitle from "Rank 3 emote" to "Deer emote", "Rank 6 emote" to "Wolf emote", and etc. As the table below the images shows, the emotes are not linked to only those ranks, but rather to 3 ranks each (so the Deer actually belongs to ranks 3, 4 and 5, etc...). Erasculio 21:37, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

i agree, good call Detraya Fullvear 22:54, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

I dont see how i should @ a reply But i would like to see a more 3d angle of the emotes. Anet did a nice job making them look goed and you guys place a near 2d emote pictures. This is a kinda waste of the nice emotes.

change picture

moved from Talk:Rank
(, it doesn't match the others i vote we change back to the other one. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Detraya Fullvear .

Article needed?

moved from Talk:Rank

I don't think two articles on that topic are needed. Rank and Hero (Title) Poke 16:41, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

15 emote

i noticed someone had placed dragon (before it was changed back) as the emote for r15. is there proof of this in a pic anywhere? maybe during the ats testing? --Wongba 16:56, 4 May 2007 (EDT)

All rank 15 emotes in ATS testing showed the phoenix. So the rank 15 isn't implemented yet. --BigBlueMonk 20.png talk 04:12, 5 May 2007 (EDT)
Gaile told a group of players that the final emote was a dragon. 00:19, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
Please post a screenshot of this talk. Moreover I asked Gaile for a statement. --BigBlueMonk 20.png talk 04:04, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
From what I know Gaile has spoken about it being implemented soon, but afaik never confirmed what it would be. I may have missed the log in question though. --Lemming64 12:21, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
I have never, ever said what the Rank 15 emote will be. Well, aside from repeating The Frog's absurd "notion" that it is going to be a Giant Gopher or Giant Gerbil or something of that sort. ;) I can assure you that I have never said what it would be in a serious vein, ever. --Gaile User gaile 2.png 23:43, 11 May 2007 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure we all know what it's going to be: [1]. Yeah. You know it's true. MisterPepe talk 00:30, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

Hehe, I hope so! jk. Oh and under the Rank15 emote it still says Dragon on wiki btw...— BlackGeneral19px 00:31, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

Fixed, thnx Blue =)— BlackGeneral19px 07:01, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

I just saw that Kryta bomber video, and the frog used a rank emote of a rabbit... whered that come from??? =O -- 19px (General | Talk) 17:40, 18 May 2007 (EDT)
Only artistic latitude :) --BigBlueMonk 20.png talk 12:03, 19 May 2007 (EDT)
I'm gonna laugh my ass off if the emote IS a bunny all that hard work for a Bunny xD -.- Tomoko 19px (talk)
I think it might be quite cute after all... (Jope12 11:53, 17 September 2007 (UTC))
If it is a bunny it should be the mounty python one from the holy grail
I think it should be a ghostly.. like /rank Rwar I'm the ghostly kinda thing just jumps out at you
I hope it would be a dragon...I'm gonna check myself and let you guys know. MCPol

I hopes its a dragon that lifts you up in the air and you fly for 10 seconds.

soo... anyone else rooting for a giant bambi?—?Jedi?Rogue? 23:43, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm rooting for blanking out everything else in the instance, all except for the user's now anime-esque face, which is surrounded by shojo sparkles as a choir of angels blast trumpets. Then everyone bows down in awe, as the lights fade and the user dies.

Giant gecko for sheer randomness :) ~ User PaeSig.gif | Pae - Talk | 01:45, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
Hmm...I wonder why Pae wants a gecko...IMO geckos are leet, but no part of GW. Calor - talk 01:57, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
Sheer randomness = utter confusion FTW ;) - In all seriousness, a dragon would be interesting, but I think that it's a bit too expected. ~ User PaeSig.gif | Pae - Talk | 21:28, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Im really hopeing for a ghostly emote i think that it would be suitable for the game

Stephen Colbert would be the best.

Hm... I'm for a huge, dire, ferocious, terrifiying, fluffy and cute white rabbit, just like in Kryta Bomber video "Elona Club" MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 17:29, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Why not a frog? to pay homage to the one and only? Zyko --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

I vote for a dragon that coils up around you then lifts you 2 times higher than the highest para emote, then bursts out in front of you similarly to the dragon firework in lord of the rings fellowship of the rings Words can heal 18:04, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

The Formula

Is there really any purpose for it whatsoever? Congrats, you get your points for making an equation to approximate the data, but as there's nothing to be predicted (which would be the reason you would create an equation to approximate the true values), there's no reason for it. I'm thinking it should just be deleted.--onoes! Mafaraxas 05:43, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

There a lot of things on this wiki that "don't serve any purpose whatsoever" to different segments of people actually. Sure, it's not useful, especially given the nature of the title and the accuracy of the formula at lower tiers. But since the wiki exists to document the game, I find it difficult to accept "it is useless" as a valid reason to delete something that's not misleading, not inapplicable, and not outright wrong. Move it to trivia if you want, as I see no reason to outright delete it, unless of course, you're of the opinion that all trivia should be deleted as well. -- sig 07:12, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
There's a simple reason, Aberrant, the forumla is not accurate? If you look at the table, it predicts certain ranks dead on, and others, it does not. i.e. it's wrong. Why bother with it to begin with? This is a finite set of numbers. --Karlos 07:17, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I know that the formula is inaccurate, which is why I suggested moving it to trivia. I wasn't the one who thought up that formula, but I think if someone took the trouble of doing that why shouldn't it be kept? We keep vague trivia references, so I'm thinking along the same lines of tolerance. -- sig 07:25, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
We don't keep trivia references that are wrong, do we? So, if someone said that the seven NPCs in the quest x are named after the League of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen and only 3 of them had somewhat similar names, do we keep that note or remove it? I would remove it. --Karlos 22:20, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
All right, I don't have a counter to that, so I'll concur. -- sig 00:52, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Lawl I'm hoping for a goshtly hero emtoe <3


I think that the R15 Emote should be Grenth and Dwanya coming out of the player and having a duel, it would be very cool


if someone was looking for the rank emote, and types emote they will be linked to the standard emote page. I think a disambiguous page might be needed. LeFick 17:10, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

/rank is listed on Emote, so I don't see the problem? If you search for emote I don't think you expect to end up on a page just about the rank emote. - anja talk 17:18, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Where is the abmiguation? As with all emotes, /rank and /fame are listed under that page, and they are also listed at the bottom of this page. I've added a link to the description from the emote page to this one if that was your concern. --Thervold 17:19, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
That will do just fine. I had seen them myself in town, and didn't know much about them. When I came accross this page, I just though that there was a potential for confusion. I try to consider that what I might know or understand and take for granted, someone else is just learning for the first time. I write assembly manuals as part of my job, and you would be surprized at what can confuse some people. LeFick 19:36, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Just got rank 15, it's a penis

Guess what that implies? -- sig 07:18, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Maybe it's supposed to be one of those messages I keep hearing on the radio "Want respect. Use a comdom"? MCPol

R15 Emote #2

C'mon everyone knows it is Chuck Norris... 22:28, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Rank 15

Anet please make 20 more double fame weekends so i can finally see rank 15 emote!!!! atleast show us some beta videos of previous work on it!!! please!

i hope it's nothing to make everyone all depressed, or a dragon that poops r8 eternal blades everywhere
why does he have to poop them?? PLZ CLICK HERE ^Teo^ 21:44, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

My Thoughts On The Rank 15 Emote

I am thinking that if they ever do make a R15 emote, that it will be of Balthazar or some sort of deity (god).

Whatever it is, I hope that they make one. Although I am not sure whether they will or not because so far the highest emote is a Pheonix, and everyone knows that, according to legend, a pheonix cannot die, well, not permanently anyway. They just get reborn again. So it seems fitting that a pheonix may be the highest emote and that they will not bring out a R15 emote.

That's just my two cents worth. 05:01, 17 January 2008 (UTC) Chris.

It's a Spectral Hero. it's sure since few hours, the R15 as been reach by Leeloof.
Proof please, preferably in the form of pictures. - User HeWhoIsPale sig.PNG HeWhoIsPale 16:19, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Yea some proof please i am really looking foward to seeing what it is/going to be --Wild rituals 11:47, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Dragon. jos?ph 01:16, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Leeloof is the highest ranked player at the mo, fame wise, and I think hes broken the 90k fame barrier, so no one knows yet. -- Salome User salome sig.png 15:34, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Starcraft passed Leeloof. Star is ~11,000 fame away, whereas Leeloof is ~14,000 away. --Uchiha Lena 19:22, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Leeloof's bad and starcraft actually is good. Starcraft is ~7000 fame away now. Unexist 17:57, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm 7k away, thats not that far. So yay -- Salome User salome sig.png 15:47, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Wrong, Just asked today for Starcraft, he is 12k away from R15! I can give the screenshot away if needed.

Just interested....

What's the longest victory spree you've heared? - Jope12 User J.P. sigicon.png 10:13, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

well, i once saw "ascalon this way" have like 8x HoH? but i doubt that that's a record :p 12:23, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Fifty-something wins, stopped counting at that point. Both iQ and Te did it. Bad guilds like GANK run stupid shit at like 3 am to win, but even they don't manage to hold that long. -Auron 12:33, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

I won 7 consec once with SoG running B-spike, got terrible chest drops :P Words can heal 22:02, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Too lazy to do the math, but, Reverend Moonii got a 3500 fame conseq, said he held halls for a little over 10 hours (and people actually skipped work for this xD). Moonii himself is r11, and, Guild Leader of [ToRe]. *sigh* Did quick math in my head, he had a little over 70 holds. --Uchiha Lena 19:20, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Highest number of hall wins in a row was 22 for me. And 6 with me as a team leader. (Ate of DK 14:28, 25 July 2008 (UTC)).

I've seen some charr use the tiger emote can we put it in notes or trivia or something after me or someone esle gets screen shot? king 14:34, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Edit buttons

For me some of the edit buttons in this article are not where they should be, does everyone have this or is it just me? Don't know how to fix it though so if someone can, please do. Screenshot Hakiki 08:53, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

It's caused by the images. No worries. It can't really be fixed unless you either remove the pictures or change your preferences to not have the edit links. -- User Sig.png 15:47, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

It's called a Star of Transferance. He was spamming them. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

it would also be useful if u named the person in question as there's only a few ppl that are rank 14. although as the IP says, it's likely u were observing something else. --VVong|BA 18:13, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

r15 emote is either a turtle or a centaur, ANET isnt sure about that yet--Master of darkness 17:40, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Is this a fake? Rank 15 emote.jpg--User RAd1cAl EdwArd Guildwiki-icon-small.pngRAd1cAl_EdwArd 12:29, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
actually, any pic might be a fake, since expd users can just photoshop or anything it and make whatever they want ^^ this one looks quite authentic, though. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 12:49, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Not saying its fake, but just saying that the head model is the same as glints at droks, and the wings are the same as the dragon facets just gold. Not saying it's fake as anet have a habit of reusing already existing models. Just saying that to photoshop it the elements already exist. -- Salome User salome sig.png 16:47, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Sorry, this is not an authentic image. Nice try, but no. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:36, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Everyone should know it was a fake anyway; as nobudy has r15 yet. Starcraft's gettin close tho. Unexist 17:56, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
I thought Leeloof was closest? -- Salome User salome sig.png 00:40, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

On top of all of that, we already know that the R15 emote will be a huge, dire and ferocious... RABID RABBIT!!! XDDD MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 18:17, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Last i heard starcraft was about 7k away from it, but that was a while ago--TalkWild 06:53, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

I talked to starcraft yesterday. He has 86k fame. so got a while to go. thats like getting rank 11 again. Leeloof said he has 110,000 fame..but im sure hes lying

Starcraft has 13k left to get for rank 15. Spoke to him today and he very kindly updated me. :) -- Salome User salome sig.png 22:17, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

It would be great if it were supported by a screenshot. Some of my friends had 40K+ fame when they quit playing and they played HA a lot and succesfully as well. (Ate of DK 14:25, 7 August 2008 (UTC)). letting people looking at this archive know that there was a previous image using the "Rank 15 emote.jpg" namespace, that was not the one that is shown on this page. Just letting people know that Gaile was not lying when she said it wasn't authentic. Thats it :D.


is it true that the frog has a similar emote, just with a rabbit instead of a different animal? - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 21:01, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Thats the fan-made GuildWars video "Kryta Bomber" you are thinking of, I believe. 04:30, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

I thought starcraft quit guildwars and no longer pvp's...starcraft has been stuck b/w 13,000 and 15,000 for 3 months now(Beginning of April - July)..if you ever noticed..haha ;p(posted 2008 August 5th)!! ~ israelite goddess(ign)

Well then you are misinformed. Starcraft is on every night in PvP. -- Salome User salome sig.png 14:04, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

R15 Emote

I just think the Emote won't be a Dragon because everyone thinks that I think the Emote will be Balthazar(or something) anyone else has some ideas?--Lake Axel 10:11, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

I still say it'll be a dragon. Think "Glint" and it just makes sense IMO. jos?ph 18:01, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Yup, just saw it, is a dragon.. it kinda flies around a little... does a little turn or whatever, it as amazing, Starcraft I believe... was in RA just a second ago.. it was very impressive-- 19:42, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
