If any situations arise that warrant further involvement, they should be reported directly to the Official Guild Wars 2 Wiki moderators for review.


As Guild Wars 2 is currently in development, it should be clearly understood that information that has not been officially released by ArenaNet pertaining to the game should not be posted to this website. Any inside information gained by individuals such as alpha and beta testers, press, NCSoft employees, ArenaNet employees, and individuals bound by a Non-Disclosure-Agreement (NDA) may not be posted to this wiki for any reason.
