The Local.dat file, located in %appdata%/Guild Wars 2/, contains all local information relating to the Guild Wars client, including settings, nicknames, and saved login information. [1]

The Local.dat file may also be found under the Guild Wars 2 folder located in your Documents folder. If it exists, it will take priority.

Deleting Local.dat[edit]

Deleting the Local.dat file can be done as a first option when troubleshooting problems with the Guild Wars 2 client. This action can optionally be followed by a client repair using the -repair command line argument.

Deleting this file will cause the following game settings to be lost or restored to defaults:

  • Language, graphics and sound settings
  • Saved account email and password in the launcher, if the user chose to save them
  • Trading Post favorites
