Search on Wiki

You can directly access the wiki's search page from within the game by using the following command: /wiki [search terms]. It will send you to the main page of the wiki if there are no search terms specified.

  • /wiki — opens your default web browser to wiki's home page.
  • /wiki <keyword> — opens your browser to the wiki article named "keyword"; if no article exists, searches the wiki for "keyword" and displays relevant articles.
  • /wiki [chat link] — opens the browser to a search of up to 10 chat links (any links past 10 will be ignored). Chat links that have a an associated wiki page will have it linked in those search results.
    • Chat links can be added to the chat textbox by shift+clicking the corresponding object, this allows editing the line before sending it. In contrast, ctrl+click instantly sends the in chat as a message, so that method will not work along the /wiki command.
    • At this point it is possible to link waypoints, points of interest, items, skills, traits, effects, wardrobe entries, outfits and recipes learned.
  • /wiki DE: <keyword>, /wiki ES: <keyword>, or /wiki FR: <keyword>
    • This will search the other language wikis for the matching keywords. Chat links also work.
  • /wiki GWW: <keyword>
    • This will search on the Guild Wars wiki for the matching keywords.


  • On the reference card of the retail box edition there are two additional chat commands listed that do not exist in-game: "/AFK [on/off]" and "/invisible [on/off]". They were intended to change your presence status to Away and Invisible respectively.
  • /help or /? — previously opened the hints panel.
  • Being idle in the character selection screen does not count towards the playtime displayed when using the /age command.
