Criteria for inclusion

This page lists only notable fansites, i.e. those that meet one or more of the criteria below.

  1. Official Guild Wars sites with a Guild Wars 2 counterpart.
  2. Has been strongly recommended by members of this wiki's community.
    • The page has been suggested on the talk page.
    • The community has expressed consensus that the site is worth adding to the main list.
    • The community continues to find that the site is active, maintained, and relevant for inclusion.
  3. Has been highlighted by ArenaNet for its purpose or activities related to Guild Wars 2.

Other notes

  • Suggested sites will remain on the talk page, even if they are not selected for inclusion above.
  • Some sites that appear popular (see above) will sometimes be left out of the list, if they do not remain current.
