API:Render service

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The render service provides access to in-game assets like item icons, skill icons and more.

Images can be accessed via URLs of the following form: https://render.guildwars2.com/file/{signature}/{file_id}.{format}

Both the file id and signature are required to retrieve the file. Valid file formats are png and jpg.

Example

Endpoints

API version 1 endpoints like e.g. the item_details resource will return the file id and the signature separately while version 2 endpoints like e.g. /v2/items will return the full url (with a png suffix).

Endpoints that provide information that allows access to files include but are not limited to:

API version 1
API version 2

Notes

Currently the cache-control header returned by this endpoint is invalid which prevents file caching. (ref)
  • While the render service requires both a file id and a signature the file id alone is technically enough to uniquely identify a specific file among all files.
