hey hey emily was up i got 1 question for ye do we have the same friends on guild wars 2 as we did in guild wars one? please tell me we do or thats bites =( Dwgsong 23:36, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Please see Guild Wars 2. Everything we know is there, and everything that's not there is not known because ArenaNet isn't talking yet.
And fyi, if you're not continuing an existing discussion, please start a new section at the bottom. Thanks. -- User Sig.png 02:17, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, Dwgsong :( Unfortunately I don't have any details on GW2 stuff yet. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:40, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Plush Mandragors

You seem like the kind of person who might be interested in this. I have not seen anywhere else that is quite right for my idea. I would like to suggest that Arenanet find a way to sell plush versions of all the minipets as well as all the animals that rangers can use as pets. I'm not sure the Ruriks or Gwens will sell that well, but the others would likely go like hotcakes. I talked to some people in the game and they were very excited to buy several such things. It may appeal to females more, I'm not sure. But either way, I'm sure they would fly off the shelves....anyone for a stuffed Glint on top of their monitor? Somehow I think your programmers would be the first ones to fill up their offices with these things. lol Thanks!

Hiya :) I know that the topic of plushies has come up many times around the marketing area. I don't know where any of the merchandising discussions stand, but I'll pass your comments along to the folks that work on that. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 17:55, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Cute birdies

Nice birdies there :) my parents won't let me have a pet Q.Q Ninjas In The Sky 08:53, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks :) They're really cool pets. I recently got a new Pineapple Conure, but haven't had the time to add a pic of her to my page. I'll do that some night when I have some free time....she's really pretty. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 19:09, 22 July 2008 (UTC)


How are you doing? Everything going fine with the GW2 dev process and other life going well too? Work is fun and free time is enjoyable?

I haven't been around for quite some time, still waiting for the PvE player nerf, but decided to show up for a while since a PvE balance update was promised recently. I actually happened to bump into an article discussing a similiar issue with WoW, it's found here if you are interested in reading it or giving a hint for other devs. ;)

Anyway, it's good to be back and good to 'talk' with old friends again. Hope to be satisfied with the update and sticking along longer. -- Gem (gem / talk) 03:11, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Heya Gem! Nice to see ya back again! I hope the update yesterday solved some of the stuff that was bugging you. I know it made me switch up my necro's build for a change, so I'm liking the changes I've played with so far. Sorry I haven't replied's been incredibly busy (still fun, though, so it balances). As always, thanks for the link. I'll send it over to design in my next email. Take care :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 04:01, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Art Team

Hi! I was wondering if you knew a way for me to contact anyone in the art team? I'm not really sure if you're the right person to ask, but I made contact in-game with Linsey Murdock earlier and she suggested I'd look around the wiki. So I did, but couldn't find anyone from the art team! :( But I know that you've done quite a bit work on the armour renderings, and figured you'd be my best shot! -- Verhaze User Verhaze V Sig.gif 18:53, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm, when you say art team, what department were you looking for? We have a lot of different teams of artists (concept, environment/props, animation, characters, etc). I'm not positive if anyone beyond Matthew has a wiki page, though. Katy's got some stuff up on her page, but I'm not positive when she last updated. All of the artists are in serious GW2 mode, so they tend not to focus externally during work. There are a bunch going to PAX to sign prints, but that's about all I know of right now. Wish I could be more helpful :( --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 03:57, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
I was originally looking for concept artists, sorry for not being more clear :) I'd like to ask some questions about their jobs, as I'm plotting to become a concept artist someday myself ^^ I'll check out the names you gave me, regardless of their activity. Any help is better than none, so thanks a load for what you already gave me! :) Oh, and I'd probably go to PAX if I wasn't from Norway ;) -- Verhaze User Verhaze V Sig.gif 11:35, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi Emily!

I was just wondering, what do you use to make your renders with? Or is it some special "Anet program"? Thanks! -- Mini Me talk 12:54, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

This has been asked and answered before, it is a special in house programme that they can't release to the rest of us. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 16:02, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Is TexMod the only modding program for Guild Wars? and if it isn't, which program would you reccomend?

Ah, I see. I couldn't find it anywhere hence me asking.
Does anyone know a different program to create renders with? -- Mini Me talk 20:17, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Any 3D program would work, but it requires you to get the models and textures first. poke | talk 23:42, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
And seeing has how we only have access to the textures at best from Texmod... --Wolf User Great Darkwolf User Image paw.png 14:43, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
or browsing through gw.dat with gwdatbrowser. - Y0_ich_halt User Y0 ich halt sig.jpg 15:33, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Forgot about that XD --Wolf User Great Darkwolf User Image paw.png 15:43, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Yep, as these guys said, I use a tool that was built in-house here. It's original purpose was to give artists and designers a way to preview models and animations without making everyone open up Maya/Max/other programs. Lucky for me, it doubles as a way to screen cap stuff for the web and the wiki :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 03:49, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for responding :) I'll have to go look for another program then, heh. -- Mini Me talk 09:48, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Zun Tournament

Hey, I recently tried to make predictions, but couldn't log-in (due to me forgetting the PW). I then tried to retrieve my PW, but couldn't due to the necessity of my first and last name. So I have 3 questions:

  • Why is your name required to retrieve your pw?
  • Why when re-registering your email, does it not give you a temp PW?
  • Is there anyway for me to re-register my account?

Thanks in advance. --Readem 07:23, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

first off you sound like a hacker. secondly just go to the suport page and make a ticket they will be able to help you better then Emily can. 23:04, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
Heya guys! Sorry for the very late response on this. For a variety of reasons, Xunlai is a hard subject to give details on, and I apologize for that. A lot of these issues will be alleviated in the semi-near future, but I can't provide any more info on this right now :) Until then, if you encounter any issues, please contact support and they'll be able to help ya out on a case-by-case basis. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 00:24, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Guild Page

Heya Emily! Just a heads up, your guild page is slated to be tagged inactive because it hasn't had any edits in 3 months. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 19:39, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Eep, thanks Wyn! I'll take a look at it later today. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 17:32, 9 September 2008 (UTC)


imo there are a few reasons for giving a char a Dread Mask...but...why on the Necro? Would you be keeping the armor in the pic or new armor to go with the Mask? (imo spend the money on a Crystal Flame Staff) :D --> 17:41, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm just a sucker for the look of the looks like something out of Predator (mmm...predator) and it dyes up super red. I'm thinking I'll keep the Vabbian set with it since I worked my butt off to get it, but I may keep a secondary set to switch out with sometime. Thanks for pointing out that's super pretty dyed red. I'll see if I can part with my BMP weapons long enough to pick one up :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 17:50, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Minor mistake on your user page

Hey Emily, it seems that when you added the website projects tab to your userpage you forgot to change the "This" parameter for the Journal, Characters and Archives to reflect the extra tab and thus they show the previous one as active. Hope this makes sense since I sometimes have a tendency of confusing people with my explanations. All you need to do is increase the This=# by one for those three tabs to fix it. --Kakarot Talk 23:34, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Kakarot! I totally forgot about incrementing that :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 23:36, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem glad to help :) --Kakarot Talk 23:38, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I found a bug but couldnt find out how to report the bug.. sorry!

If you go on list bosses by profession, then to monk bosses, "Anmat the Trickster" comes up, though he is a Mesmer Boss. Just to let you know!

Thanks --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Not a bug. He's a dual profession boss.--Pyron Sy 23:09, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Random Teleportation Chat/Storage Skills Texmod 10:05, 4 November 2008 (UTC) NOX TO Kick it off, I'am tired of beeing warped to a town when I leave off in the hall. Its rather annoying when I'm trying to make an account runn over all my toons finding items Between Toons. (not to mention the constant stream of new items beeing introduced, and the lack of storage space there of). (some ppl are avid collectors, maybe you should introduce a green items/festival items bag where you can store one of each item in it..)I want to Log back where I Logged not put where I didnt want to Be. Dont try telling me this dosn't happen often I have complained about it before and it always happens! Way to often! If it didn't happen would I be complaining about it?

Now Lets get into the chat options like the local/trade dispute. The sea of one color is very hard on the eyes. I think some more colors are in order, party search should be an entirly different color all together. The GREEN" Item Drop list is annoying when im trying to GREEN" Guild chat for example. Team chat and whispers .. comeon guys wheres the rainbow? theres to much meshing we tend to miss things..

On to the Skills, why are the runn skills still 25% when you go in hard mod.. hmm hardmode skill changes like pvp skill adjustments are in order ? There are aot of skills that should function slightly differently in hard mode.. I'm sure you can think of some.

Warning: Oh, I downloaded (Spyware Doctor) and it seems to have come across a backdoor in TEXMOD ... As much as I regret to post this, Seeing how much I liked customizing the halls/skinns Ui and so on with that program. (I'am no longer using it)I sure hope that problem will be resolved, or someone comes up with a clean better program.. that dosnt hint in that direction. 10:42, 4 November 2008 (UTC)NOX

1- This happens when the GuildWars Server and your PC are out of sync, as far a I know. Quickly going through charaCters to check their inventory tends to be a bit too much for the server
2- Can't comment on this one, my trade chat is off by default. But I do know MY eyes would hurt seeing 7 different kinds of textcolor floating through my screen.
3- Why would you need an increase in running skills in Hardmode. The whole idea is that the enemies got a 50% speedboost, so you can never outrun them. Thats the 'hard' in hardmode.
4- This is a well-known false positive. Read up on it at GWGuru
--Arduinna talk 11:17, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I would like to point out that Emily has little if anything to do with actual game issues. These items should be placed in the ArenaNet feedback area. Also, Textmod is NOT an ArenaNet product, so there is nothing they are going to be able to do about the false positive you got on your scan. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 13:30, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Design-A-Weapon Contest

Hey, I was wondering if there is going to be another Design-A-Weapon Contest. Because last year I joined guild wars just after the event happened, I'd like to take part if there is another one, thanks :)--Volken Blade 17:01, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Hiya Volken! You'd have to ask Regina about that. I don't handle any contests :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 04:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

connection problem

I've been having dificulty to connect..loggin is ok ..but every time I try to enter a map (explorable area)I got disconnected...sometime can even enter the game..starts loading screen where i last got disconnected and got disconnected again..back to loggin screen!! i live in Europe-Serbia!! just to tell i'm not the only one with this problem. lots of people here got this random disconnections...hope you will fix this soon! Thanks

I think this is for problems about the wiki. Not the game. Edmond The Ranger 00:00, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Heya anonymous! Unfortunately, I'm unable to track any game issues. I handle web/wiki/marketing/visual services. If you're having issues connecting, contacting support or even sending Gaile a message on her talk page would be the best way to go :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 02:28, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

how to make a page

hey Emily i need help creating a page, i just started a wiki acount today and wanted to know if u could help me make one, thanks a ton, -Heretoplay2424

You can access your user page by clicking your user name at the top of the page or entering special:mypage in the search box while logged in. Also, you can sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). Also, you should probably see help:contents and the pages it links to for answers to common questions, and you can use help:ask a wiki question to ask wiki-related questions. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 07:08, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

The Holding Tank

Just a tip here. The Holding Tank lacks a table of contents. It would be nice if it had one, if your so inclined. — Jon 05:09, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Hiya Jon! I was intending to leave it off, but if it's useful, I'll add it back in a few minutes. --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 05:12, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Ok, Thanks! :D I'm a bit of a navigational freak, and it realy helps me out a lot. — Jon 05:14, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I hear you...that's why I'm still here at my desk this late. My page was driving me insane =X
The stinky thing about TOCs on page as long as mine is that they get HUGE, and then they push the content of the actual page down. I guess it wouldn't be as big of an issue if I didn't put the top area in it's own div, but that helps with breaking up the page too. I'll look into better ways for the future when I have more time. In any case, it's back :) Thanks for the feedback! --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 05:18, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Not sure if this would help but you could use a {{TOCright}} template so it is right aligned as shown on this pageand doesn't push the comments down. --Kakarot Talk 05:26, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Speak of the devil! I just thought of your page Kakarot. I did some playing, and if you replace this line:<div style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" width="100%">__TOC__</div> with this line:<div style="width:290px; height:395px; overflow:auto; margin:10px">__TOC__</div> in your header code, you'll get a nice scroll bar on your table of contents like Kakarot has! :D — Jon 05:28, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
The reason it doesn't push the content down on that page is because the information below it is in a table that shrinks to allow the TOC space. To do the same on Emily's talk page, would cut the size of the text area for the entire length of the page, so I'm not sure it's as viable an option. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 08:54, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Emily, I would suggest moving the question about the suggestions to the Holding Tank, too (this one), if you feel it's appropriate. Also, I wish you a good recover from your recent health problems, pyelonephritis is, indeed, serious business. Erasculio 18:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Thanks guys! I changed the TOC a little bit and moved a few topics back over. That works a bit better :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 23:06, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Hey Emily, nice to see you back ;) About the logo we/I figured out, that it is enough to change the css to switch the logo to something else. So we can still change the logo without risking something like last time again. poke | talk 08:46, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Rockin! Sounds great to me. If you guys do end up needing me to flip anything, just let me know. We have the issues that caused problems last time resolved, so it shouldn't happen again. Regardless, just altering the css is a lot easier for me, though :) --UserEmilyDiehlStar.gif Emily Diehl (talk) 22:53, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
