New Content

Hey everyone, don't you guys think Guild Wars needs new content or anything? I'm pretty bored of it after about 2 years of playing. Ok, the expansions are awesome, but after an expansion, no new content will be released, just skill updates etc. And since GW2 is coming soon (1 year or so) no expansion will be released. So, my opinion is: get some new content like a new dungeon or something, I don't care. Just do something! Sito | talk

I'm sure we all want new content, and we'll get a whole load of it when GW2 comes out. In the meantime, enjoy what we have and the upcoming festival. calor (talk) 03:43, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Well that's the problem, festivals or anything like that doesn't satisfy me anymore.. It's all the same. Sito | talk
Some useful game rebalancing would be nice. Less than 50% of districts exists in RA every night compared to the last month before the big skill update... that means more than 50% of players ceased playing. What might be the reason... hummmm. Or is GW1 officially abandonware now? -- 00:37, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
Just think of how it is after four years of playing. And as much as I would love new content, they're better using their resources on GW2. It's going to be so worth the wait. 23:37, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
i think that they have taken away some of the few things that were left to do by geting rid of the hfffing as after you complete the games the only thing to do is farm for most casual players because most titles just stupidly hard like for example the rebalanced kurz/lux titles which takes about 100 factions or young hero books to max each and that across 10 chars is anoying enough but when you use less than 10 chars it becomes close to impossable to do and trying to do any elite missions is eaven worse because nobody wants to do it anymore and when you do get a group together somebody either leaves or cant do it Azreal of SkyrimUser Azreal of skyrim signature.jpg 14:51, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
I wish they'd add a new campaign, I have multiple characters in the 3 campaigns and they all will eventually end up in EOTN. 14:05, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Event timer

Based on this discussion on Emily's talk page, I want to bring this to the attention of all wiki users to see what they think about it. Please read that discussion to get the basic idea, and continue the discussion here. poke | talk 20:44, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I see no reason not to, but where would we put it? calor (talk) 20:46, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
I think next to the time. Might make it look a bit cluttered but it's a neat addition. If not on the main bar, somewhere on the bottom of the main page perhaps?-- User Vanguard VanguardLogo.pnganguard 20:49, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
If it's only for one event, it could go on that event's page (possible the main page too). It wouldn't be necessary to put it wiki-wide because it doesn't have any relevance outside of the event page. Adding multiple times (including captions) on every page would clutter up the interface. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 20:52, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Or if it can't be in the mainpage we can make it in the event page's, and if it is a succes Emily can make it for the mainsite aswell or even better in the loginscreen of guildwars. Anyway lets start at the wiki :), Brain was faster np. Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 20:54, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
*adds the echo* Event timers should go on the event page mainly, but an additional link on the main page when an event is on would be nice. All event information in one place, and all. User Aba Malatu sig.png Aba Malatu means Forbidden Truth 20:57, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Getting it in the login screen would be useless, as players want to know whilst in-game. Anyways, Anet wouldn't have the time or desire to do it. Same with doing it for their website. I wouldn't want it on a specific page or two, just as part of the universal interfece of the wiki, for lack of a better term. Maybe have "
anyone here know how to make a code for such timer? Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 23:06, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Well the coding is already in place for the general time, so it won't be too hard to adapt that. And a quick question: are we talking about a single timer that counts down til the start of a weekend/special event, or a timer that resets itself every three hours during events such as the upcoming Canthan New Year where there are special events scheduled throughout the day? I also agree with others when they state that it won't be necessary to clutter up the Main Page any further by adding a timer there. If people want to know about the event, they can visit the event page. --Apocalypse Riser Talk 12:17, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
I think that the presence on the main page will be determined by how the timer works. If it's a "count down to each finale" timer that resets every 3 hours, I think it would be good to have it on the main page. If it's just a timer til the start of an event, I think just the event page could be fine. Even then, I think main page and event page is the way to go. --JonTheMon 22:43, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
agreed with jon. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 02:28, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes Mainpage and event page sounds like a good idea62.133.217.85 07:58, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
But how are we gone make it on the mainpage or the eventpage, in top of the page? 12:22, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
One issue I just thought of regarding putting it on the main page: when does it get removed and when does it get added? --JonTheMon 13:58, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Just ad it and then its shows nearest event? And the wenn maskguy comes it repeats every 3hours but i think this timer needs to be on the eventpage only. Timer on mainpage is for events to start and end. Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 17:20, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I implemented an easy solution now. The timer is static, as a dynamic solution would require some javascript that gets the target time somehow from the article etc. - it would make everything a lot more complicated, and I think we can live with this for now. If I had more time, maybe you would have seen something better, but I probably won't be here for the rest of the week.
I think it is obvious how to change the target date and you can also change the text to for example "The next finale with the Celestial Ox" and it'll display like that. Be cautious that the template disables caching of the pages, so remove it when the event is over. poke | talk 19:11, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay, the timer just went from 5h07 to 5h55 after the hour passed. --Arduinna talk 15:07, 30 January 2009 (UTC)


You know, e with circumflex etc. Alt + num dont work on gw so i was wondering what the command code thingy actually is. Thanks.

You can paste those characters into GW - that's the only way atm. poke | talk 21:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
But obviousely not? Because me guildies are always taunting me with their mass producing of é and á etc. And French/German players also (or do they have different keyboard entirely?) The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 21:40, January 23, 2009 (UTC).
I believe it has something to do with either the Keyboard Layout (English/French) or the Input Language as someone I know has had some problems with it switching to French and then not being able to change back. I also used to have the same problem as him but managed to fix it somehow and although I repeated the same thing on his computer it didn't work. I'm not entirely sure what I did as it's been a while. --Kakarot Talk 04:27, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
You can insert all characters your keyboard allows; for others you need to copy&paste them as the Alt+NumPad combination doesn't work in-game. poke | talk 20:20, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

It's 'no one'. It could have been someone but never became anything more than an example render. There are some unamed characters:
  • Prophecies male warrior wearing something that looks like a Templar armor.
  • Prophecies female ranger you could say it's Reyna, but has a completely different looks and hair color than her.
  • Prophecies female mesmer. Some people would say she's Altea, but they look nothing alike.
  • Factions female Ritualist. That seems to be one of those appearing in the Shiro cinematics...
  • Nightfall female Dervish.
  • Nightfall male Paragon. You could say that's the Original Sogolon, since it looks like the one in the Ritualist skill, but the Sogolon ghost model wears a helmet.
The other 'faces' seen on the official site, profession selection banners when creating characters, advertisements and boxes do have names: They are Cynn, Eve, Mhenlo and Nica/Vizu. Aidan and devona appear in couple of places also, as artwork or in manuals.MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 16:32, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

It looks like Devona's pa. We shared trenches back in THE Guild War. 07:13, 13 May 2009 (UTC)Ryoko Yonekura

In my opinion, those characters are nothing more than examples to the professions the players can create in game, these are just a Dervish, Paragon, Warrior, Ranger, Mesmer that could be any player's character. --Soulforged 11:50, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Well...True...WoW does have 11mill accounts, what they have never told is the number of accounts that are banned permanently, the number of people who stopped playing (such as me)...WoW just gets booring after a while, because its just pure grind, and honestly I dont find the professions and races and classes doing any better. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Calerouxz (talk).

A nice update upon the main page, I've always wondered why we didn't have a featured article section unlike many other wikis out there. However, as has been stated before, the placement -really- bothers me. I might adjust to it, and it's more than likely because I'm so used to the old layout, but the lack of having game basics, and having to move my mouse the extra x amount of pixels to get to things such as the skills link under game basics in comparison to where they used to be is seriously annoying. Personally, I think the new sections should either be moved to the bottom of the page, or made smaller than the other sections with a smaller text size to reduce the amount of placement difference from where everything it was before. I don't know, it just bothers me. A lot. ~ Ryuu DesuUser Ryuu Desu Sig.png[ Talk|Contributions ] 15:41, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Showing imporved diff views

On Fable Wiki we have a nice feature called improved diff views, it allows us to see the changes that happen on a page in a better way. The feature helps us to see vandalism we might not be able to see at first glance or see things like this so we can fix them in a more timely manner. This really isn't something that is going to be extremely helpful, but I could see where it might have some use. You can get the code for it here (it originated on wikipedia so its all GFDL) and it is all done in MediaWiki:Common.js so no installing or anything is needed. It places a button on diff pages that when clicked will show you an improved diff. Its up to you guys but I figured it wouldn't hurt to throw it out there. --Shadowphoenix User Shadowphoenix Necromancer.png 16:22, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey, yeah! And yesterday's quests were out 24 hours before those ones! I guess we should actually list every single Zaishen Quest since conception the Main Page. 04:39, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Seriously, use some intelligence. I NEVER said list EVERY single one. I said list both for today. It's not exactly hard to understand as this is a WIKI that offers information, ESPECIALLY information that pertains to DAILY quests, and would not be exceptionally far from being understandable. -Lena™ User Lena Sig.png talk 04:48, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the Wiki is a source of information for the daily quests, but I have to echo IP's sentiment. Why is it necessary to display the quests that are no longer obtainable? It just seems like a big opportunity for confusion/disappointment, :( What do you mean by "double bonus," though? Elysea User Elysea ElyseaSignatureImage.jpg 04:57, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) But they're not available anymore. The point of putting the quests on the Main Page is to let people know what quests are available at the time without having to navigate to the Zaishen Challenge Quest page. Having two sets of quests up while only one set is actually available in-game would be confusing and detrimental. 04:58, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Alright, then. Majority rules-- it was merely a suggestion. I still feel that documentation of it should be made somewhere. Meh...
@Ely: I was reffering to the people who managed to get all 4 quests got a "double bonus".-Lena™ User Lena Sig.png talk 05:30, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
We don't document the game on the Main Page; there is not enough room for it. poke | talk 07:14, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

What happened to mister "be like me" ?

He's not on the main page any more ...?! Yseron - 17:18, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

wtf r u talkin about? -Auron 17:53, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
I think Auron, in his own, inimitable style, speaks for the entire wiki there - what?? --snogratUser Snograt signature.png 18:00, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
After looking at the history of the main page, logic command that the "featured user" was on a page that looked like the main page, but is not the main page. Other than that, the only trace left about what i saw and that i could quickly find is there. Yseron - 20:43, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

June updates

Why is the link to there gone from the main page? - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 17:58, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
because I didn't look at what I did :) poke | talk 18:24, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
And why is Weekend Events link removed too? Because the main page shows the current event already? I think it should be brought back anyway. - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.pngTalk 18:37, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Then propose it here where discussion and consensus happens for changes to the main page. But since there is a link to the upcoming weekend event, as soon as it gets announced, I don't think another link is necessary. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 18:42, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Colour codes

Anyone has any idea to figure out the colour codes such as the warriors yellowish colour, or a rangers green, monks blue etc..And also how I could make the tabs on my wiki page be the colour of the profession with the symbol. Such as my warr would have the background yellowish colour along with the shield logo thing. --Sam6555 20:08, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

GWW:COLORS and Template:Color. poke | talk 20:22, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I know why I couldn't find it. This wiki uses american spellings. ^^ --Sam6555 20:25, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm begining to think I cannot change the colours as I am copying the templates from someone elses user space, therefore it takes the colours they set when making their template :( --Sam6555 20:46, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
What you do is copy their template to your space, and then change the colors :D --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 15:02, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

New Content

Ya I have been playing GW for almost a year now and at time (even though I haven't completed everything with all my toons) does feel like it is dragging on at times such as the whole thing with Anet in the start of this saying this was a none grinding game.... well heh since most of the updates this has become more about get your titles as fast as you can before GW2 comes out..... I am hoping that by doing this, that the people who have taken the time to get a mass amount of titles get something special unlocked come the new game. Same thing with the people that fill out their HOM.... it would be nice to see that having nice armor skin does not mean anything I mean come on how many people do you see running around in Obby because it is leet and exspensive making them think they are the big bad gammer in town... gets kind of annoying and makes me want to play pop the ego bubble game in every own and out post. Besides that yes they did give us new content.. (a.k.a. the Z-mish, z-bounty, and z-combat) but it is pretty much another excuse to have the mass of the community to get to their title grinding, again I feel like GW is going against what they said they are not. Yes I probably sound like I'm whining but just figured I would give my opinion on the whole thing about the new content and some other random goings of the game that I have noticed. All in all I am looking forward to what GW2 has in store for us until then continue to enjoy GW. ValestyCross 16:28, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
