This page provides assistance with questions about using and editing the Guild Wars 2 Wiki.

To get started, please click on a relevant link to what you want help with below.

If you're looking for help with Guild Wars 2, rather than the wiki itself, then try Frequently Asked Questions.

I want info about searching or browsing

There is a search box on the left-hand side of every page with the word "Search" in it. Type what you are looking for in there and then press the "Go" or "Search" buttons. See the searching help page for more details.

Most pages are grouped together with similar articles via categories. You can find these links at the bottom of the page. For instance, this page is within the help category and clicking on this link will take you to a list of all the other help pages.

I want to edit an article

Contributing is easy: see how to edit a page. The editing cheatsheet will teach you basic wiki markup and how to create and move pages. You can practice editing and experiment in a sandbox, or just wing it on your first article.

Be bold in improving articles! We'd rather that you created an article with the basic content (even without the wiki formatting) than no article at all.

I want to create a new article or upload media

Have a quick look using the search feature to check that a page doesn't exist that covers your topic already. If it already exists, you may wish to improve it instead of creating a new article. If it doesn't exist or is distinctly different, then by all means create a new article.

Once you have created an article, find an appropriate style guide for guidance on how to format the article.

For contributing images see the image upload instructions.

I want to report a problem with an article

If you spot an error or problem with an article, you can fix it directly, by clicking on the "Edit" link at the beginning of that page.

It could be that the page has only just been edited by a malicious user - you can undo the their changes.

However, if you don't feel ready or qualified to fix the article yourself, please post a message on the article's talk page. This will bring the matter to the attention of others who can work on that article. There is a "Talk" link at the top of every article page.

Where can I help?

Any incomplete page that you find is yours to edit and improve, but if you have a suggestion for a change that might affect a large number of pages, discuss it on the community portal first.

Experienced editors review and keep an eye on the most recent edits made by all users to maintain the quality of the wiki. These editors will see questions asked on talk pages and be able to help with queries.
