Methodology[edit]

We are here to map everything and we're going to enjoy it! :D We currently follow the location formatting decided on by the community. There is also a collection of handy templates in the appendix. If you are working on a large edit please list it in the started section so other people do not edit over what your doing.

Formatting Examples[edit]

PoI Images[edit]

It seems like this project was largely for the initial release of the game in 2012, but lots of zones have come out since then! Therefore, I want to show them some love too, by ensuring that all points of interest have an image of some variety. Everything that does not have an image is either getting one from me, or getting a stub tag.

If anyone sees this and wants to help out, I basically just open each poi page and see if it has an image with it. If it does, I leave it. If it doesn't, I add {{stub|location|missing image}} in curly brackets at the top of the page. If you decide to help, please just make a comment next to what you worked on so that I know what's been done, even if it's just one area. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 05:10, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Expanded the overview and added check marks. All zones listed have been checked for the POI images. {{no}} tags mark zones with missing images. If only one or two are missing they are written down. All have stubs added on the respective pages. —Kvothe (talk) 10:20, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
Wow, thanks! Your formatting has been a great help. I wanted to let you know also that I made my own version of the poi stub list in my sandbox which sorts things by the area that they are in rather than the name of the poi, though it isn't very pretty. Perhaps it could be more useful for you or someone else. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 06:38, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
All missing poi are now listed here for convenience, including paths for dungeon PoIs. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 23:59, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Suddenly remembered the existence of WvW! There's tons of PoI there that will be difficult to get to unless we have people from different servers contributing. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 07:56, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
