  • Needed for "Love of an Ascalonian Girl", the fourth collection item in the The Dreamer I: The Experimental Short Bow collection achievement. A red iris flower from the Urban Battlegrounds Fractal is placed at her grave.
    • However, you will not be able to place the flower if you have Quartz Crystals in your inventory and haven't charged your daily quartz crystal yet.


  • On the gravestone is an ankh, the Egyptian symbol of life. It was used as the symbol for the monk in the original Guild Wars and is part of the symbol for the Guardian in Guild Wars 2. Gwen, however, was a Mesmer.
  • When the grave is approached, you can hear Gwen's Flute from Guild Wars.
  • It was previously stated on Gwen's Grave that she was Logan Thackeray's great-grandmother. The 250-year gap between however them suggested she would be a more distant relative. This discrepancy was adressed by the devs during the lore discrepancies project, and patched on 6/23/15.
