So whear'd I go to ask a game-related question? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Treecko1138 (talk) .

Game-related questions about GW2, if the question isn't on Guild Wars 2/FAQ, short answer is "We don't know." Game-related questions about the original Guild Wars games, of course, go on the other wiki. - Tanetris 22:21, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

<Dynamic Quests>

Okay, Some introduction, I know that dynamic quests will scale up however more people(players) arrive, but will the quest be easier to complet when more people are helping or would it be the same if 3 players are fighting an horde of centaurs as 100 is doing that? (Take in mind that every player on the server is as good/bad as you and have the same level/experiance) Just thinking if a an dynamic quest starts up, you are 3 people there to defend the town and you and the other players thinks that the quest it's hard, would it be an idea of sending one guy to try gather more people to help, or is it just a waste of time. Excuse my bad english!

Guild wars 2 personal storyline

I i hear that Guild wars 2 is haveing a personal storyline insted of missions

will they be a cutsceen storyline like in Guild wars? and how meany personal storyline missions will they be per carecture?

-- 14:54, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Personal storyline wiki article and Personal storyline article - Tanetris 15:04, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

that did still not answer my questions

There will be cutscenes, both "artsy" and ones like in GW1, but they have said they don't want to make cutscenes interrupt gameplay as much. Not sure how many storyline missions there will be, but there are three acts to the storyline. The overarching theme is of each race solving issues within their territory (e.g. sylvari --> nightmare court, asura --> inquest, etc.) before coming together to defeat Zhaitan.-- Shew 16:25, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
Those articles Tanetris linked contain most up-to-date information you can find on the subject. There is currently no such information avaiable as how many personal storyline missions there is. Mediggo 16:33, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
The reason it does not answer your question is that your question is based on a faulty premise. Reading both of those links will give you a greater understanding of what personal story actually is, and thus render your question moot.
In other words: Yes it does. - Tanetris 17:00, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
This doesn't really belong on the wiki question page, does it? --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 17:11, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

structured pvp

is there gonna be only the battle of khylo for structured pvp or is there gonna be other structured pvp maps --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

this is from the Structured PvP Page :


in short: Yes there will be new maps not just the Battle of Kyhlo. --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 05:59, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Guild Wars 2 in the Middle East

I know that Guild Wars 2 is going to be available for everyone who can speak English basically, just a digital download away. But my question is whether the closed/open beta servers are going to be available for Arabs in the Middle East to participate in? Some games restrict beta's to regions so I thought I should ask.

My friends Realm is full

I purchased guild wars 2 to play with my friends who are all on a server that is now full.

I would like to participate in both realm-v-realm pvp and also pve with them, is there anyway I can join the same realm? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Did you not read the massively huge bold text at the top of the page? It's not that hard to miss ;)
If you and your friends want to WvW together I'm afraid your only options are to wait for the server population to decrease so you can join there, or you all have to move to a lower population server that has enough room for all of you. --zeeZUser ZeeZ Sig.png (talk) 09:35, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Sincerly Brandon

This wiki page is for help regarding this wiki, not the game. Your description of the problem you're having is quite confusing; sorry, can't tell what problem you're facing. Installation is a pretty straightforward process, and the you need to online to download game updates. Consider posting screenshots of your problem on the forum or contacting support. -- User Sig.png 05:23, 16 September 2012 (UTC)


I'm playing with a friend in guild wars 2. We figured we had to be in a party to do quests en missions together. And in the information it says: Parties are not strictly necessary for the open world, but are necessary to join dungeons and other player's personal story instances.

But how do we share them??

This page is for questions about the wiki, not about the game. You can find information about parties on the Party article. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:13, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Please help me, I am afraid something might wrong with my iMac that will not allow me to play Guild Wars 2 :( . Ok this is what I did: I logged in the Guild Wars 2 website with my Guild Wars 1 account. I downloaded the Mac Beta client from the GW2 when I was logged in with my GW1 account. When the download finished, I followed the installation for mac instructions from the GW2 website. So when I tried to install it, I double clicked the .dmg that I downloaded and a window appeared with the icon of Guild Wars 2 installer. I clicked the GW2 installer icon. A step by step window appeared. The first thing to appear (i think it had 4 or 5 steps or parts) before you click continue was a white screen with a loading icon which had the word "Updating" below it, this loading thingy disappeared within a few seconds (I did not click the first continue button yet). A message appeared(I think it said: this blablabla will install GW2 for your blablabla. It was a 1 sentence thing).Before I clicked continue I noticed that a log in part did not appear as stated on the GW2 mac beta installation instructions so I clicked continue. The 2nd part appeared : it said select location. An icon of a silver box or whatever appeared, it was labeled with my PC name with HDD or something on the end. I clicked continue since it was the only location that was selectable and showed the text bar at the bottom to be labeled with words and slashes / and had the word applications on it. (although if I click it a menu with applications,launchpad,documents,and other stuff appear). The 3rd part appeared. The 3rd part I can't remember but I do remember that a window appeared that said: Guild Wars 2 wants to make changes to your Computer enter your computer password to allow it. I entered my password and clicked allow. I don't remember the exact things that were displayed on each part. On some part the CONTINUE button was replace by an INSTALL button. I clicked install. The next part appeared. It said: Downloading 509 files. It finished in 3 sec (how come it was so fast? my internet is SLOOOW 5kbps per second 95% of the time). After i clicked the button finish a window that said: tgupdate v1.1 , I waited and viewed it but it comes to an error around 10% (no percentage was displayed i just estimated the length of the dl bar filled) and it displayed DOWNLOAD ERROR and closed itself. After that a GUILD WARS 2 window appeared, I assume that is the part where you log in before you play the game. But it only showed the background but nothing else to click or type things in. I waited for 5min and closed it. I tried to install it again (same process) and overwrite the past stuff. It ALWAYS comes to an error on the window with the tgupdate v1.1. I deleted it and the dmg. Why can't i install it? Will I be able to play it If I download the same client BUT this time I will log in with a Guild wars 2 account? KEEP IN MIND I have not purchased the game so I don't have a Guild Wars 2 account yet. I plan to buy one soon as this issue gets fixed and you help me please. I downloaded the client while logged on to the gw2 website while logged in with my gw1 account so that I can install the mac beta client early and play it immediately when i register a gw 2 account. Why does it have an error on the tgupdate v1.1??? I am on Mac os x lion. I don't use wine or any of that stuff that i don't now. My specs are enough to run the game as I checked. pls help The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 13:37, 5 November 2012 (UTC).

We're not a support site and we're not ArenaNet as you realise, so there's not much the other users can do to help you. If Safari doesn't work on your Mac, try some other browser. Try another computer even. If you haven't bought GW2, why are you even trying to login? You can't without an account that you create when you register a valid GW2 key. -- User Sig.png 14:43, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Game Receiver/ Internet Connection

I'm questioning about what is happening to my internet connections and about the game connection/receiver. I don't know where to ask the game a question about this situation so I'm coming here to ask. Whenever I am playing GW2, it suddenly always freezes, the graphics freeze, and nothing is happening and I can't hear any audio. After a few seconds, it recovers but I end up having a third of my health, and I'm in a tight situation. Why is this happening? This game was supposed to improve from the last game? If this keeps happening I don't know what it would be like playing in PvP mode, when there are so many internet connections to be made at a time. Please tell me why this is happening, and this should be fixed as soon as possible. 22:35, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

We are not ArenaNet. Just GW2 players and other wiki users. For support, please proceed to the support website or the official forum. -- User Sig.png 17:50, 15 November 2012 (UTC)


This is a comment about your Trivia that you put in regards to this GW2 game. I am so sick of reading your stupid supposings on where an idea for the game "likely" comes from and you should get facts right. The whole event begins on December 14th 2012 not just before the Mayan Calendar prediction kicks in on 12 21 2012 and part of that event coincidentally begins on December 20 2012 the day before the Mayan prediction. Who ever made that connection you are a major retard. I hate stupid loose connections made like that, It shows the world how stupid you are and I hope someone a part of guild wars smartens up and fusses about your stupidity. I hope you get fired for it.

earth skills?

Hello fellow players,

I'm currently a lvl 5 Elementalist and I've recently noticed I'm unable to use my Earth skill set. Is this a bug or is it unlocked at a certain lvl. Please help.

This isn't the appropriate place for game questions - this page is for wiki questions. You should ask questions like this on the official forums. However, we state on earth attunement that it unlocks at level 6. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 15:21, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I am now on level 30, of FOTM and I only have 7 Pristine Fractal Relics, what is the reason for this? Don't they drop every time you complete the dungeon? Or does it drop every other time?

I need help with a switch

Hey guys I just recently got Guild Wars 2 and I didn't realize that this server didn't have anyone who speaks English. I would like to switch from this server to another but don't have enough gems or gold to turn into gems. I am on the miller sound server does anyone know what I can do?

Hi, I think you need to ask on the forums, we can't help you directly. The link is at the top of the page. If you delete all your characters, you get a "free" transfer, just start a new character on the server you want. I THINK, that your bank stays intact but the forums would be a better place to check. There are ways to ask one-on-one questions of ArenaNet, use the support link at the top of the page, they may be helpful. Worth a try... --Claret (talk) 19:22, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
We can't help you here - the wiki is just a bunch of players like you. Claret's suggestion is probably the best: since you "just recently got GW2," you probably haven't progressed your characters too far, so you won't be losing too much of an investment by deleting them. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 20:36, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
