To do list

The scope of this project is simple. It's a list of things that we want to do on the wiki. Sign items which you agree with. Completed items should be struck through. Feel free to add your new items anywhere you like on the page.


* Idea (e.g. I think all recipe sheet pages should link to the item they craft in a See also section)
** Signature if you agree (e.g. ~~~~ - this would be used to show how many people are interested in each item to help prioritise)


  • Replace any armor and weapon preview screenshots with ingame images.
  • Can Standard Drop Rate templates (SDRH, SDRL, SDRF) be modified to accept multiple entries of the same item and sum them automatically? This could allow entry of individual amounts to establish ranges while still contributing to averaged drop rates. For example, Sigil Bag (rare)/Drop rate.
  • Copy the Acquisition section from overview pages to the weight armor pages as well.
    • ~Sime 21:07, 15 July 2022 (UTC)
  • Modify "API Key" account templates to handle multiple accounts
    • As suggested on Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Community portal by User:Separ.
  • Create a widget which allows you to enter wikitext to see what the calculated page preview tooltip text/image would be. (currently the only option is to make an edit and wait out the cache).
  • Harmonise the account x widgets to use one widget. Or maybe even just the API token management bit?
  • Add widget/API support for Jade Bot skins and skiffs, as they are now available in the API.
    • ~Sime 18:24, 29 December 2023 (UTC)


  • Add the new chance = parameter to all containers.
1Yes I am hesitantly suggesting this is complete. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:57, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Align the way we name armor types with the names shown ingame. This change would affect the parameters specified in infoboxes, property names, display names, introduction sentences.
Okay I've made progress on this one. Skin infobox + armor infobox both use the ingame terminology, as do the armor, skin and icon categories. I guess next stage will be to amend any prose/intro sentences. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:07, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
1Yes Edited some sentences yesterday, think these are done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:33, 15 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Modify skill, trait, effect and upgrade component "/history" subpages such that if the note concerns a pre-release update, e.g. Beta event 4, then do something to mark either the beta notes in the section title (e.g. show a suffix), and do something to mark the "original" as at expansion release. Not sure how to present this. Example page: Rocky Loop/history
1Yes Infoboxes edited to add "beta" parameter, identified pages, and bot run complete. Adding original date/flag seems too hard. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:14, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
  • Add an option for custom numbered/text labels on interactive maps.
1Yes done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:02, 4 March 2023 (UTC)
  • Expand the dark vector theme to popup wiki menus (currently white backgrounds on search autocompletion)
1Yes Should be done per this edit. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 22:28, 7 March 2023 (UTC)
1Yes Done with this edit. Currently not utilised in any infoboxes in this way, but can be done if required in the future. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 17:43, 19 March 2023 (UTC)
  • Add coordinates as a priority to all vendors. Basic to do list: "User:Chieftain Alex/npc coordinates to do"
1Yes Done. Approx 200 coordinates added. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 11:03, 22 March 2023 (UTC)
1Yes Medyro did this.
1Yes Eventually got botted.
  • A few consumables were renamed ingame, particularly gem store armor and weapon consumable skins. list of pages. Moving pages could be a bot task but fixing links and prepping the pages probably is not.
1Yes These are done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 22:16, 28 December 2023 (UTC)
  • Update all relics after the November 28th, 23 patch - add facts, Version history.
    • ~Sime 14:34, 29 November 2023 (UTC)
    • Nominate simebot. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:10, 29 November 2023 (UTC)
    • I think these are mostly done, there are a couple of relic effect pages left to create. Also perhaps we need to merge the pvp relic pages into the pve ones. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 15:20, 2 December 2023 (UTC)
      • On review needs the pvp versions adding (as observed from the PvP build menu, not from looking at the pve item whilst in the pvp lobby - they are different!). Added pvp build as acquisition method to all relics to get this started. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 23:17, 28 December 2023 (UTC)
1Yes These are done. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 16:49, 29 December 2023 (UTC)
