The currently linked[edit]

The currently linked map isn't completely discovered. Will have to be replaced later. --Ee 15:43, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Indeed, there is a poi just above the letter a in Eastern. It is also not mentioned on the page but should be?

more Asura gates?[edit]

First time I saw these gates under construction I started wondering bout the purpose they are going to serve in the future. Maybe for campaign travel when expansions or new campaigns are added? For example. The order of Whispers (who have headquarters nearby) are typically an organisation that would organise the construction of a secret gate in e.g. Kaineng City.Does anyone know more bout the purpose of these gates? 15:04, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Guild Wars 2 won't have campaigns, but they'll likely serve the same purpose as the five gates in the gate plaza area - gates leading to racial starting cities. Might go to other places in the future as well. We'll see. Konig/talk 17:56, 19 August 2012 (UTC)


The vista that has the details to get there is the vista that is on Inner Harbor(and even on it!) I think it needs to be removed. And does anyone know how how to get to the one above the ship/bridge? --Angelkiss User Amanda Angelkiss sig.png 08:42, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

There are two vistas in Eastern Ward. The one mentioned in the wiki page and the one on the ship bridge. If it is not technically in Eastern Shore, what LA sub-zone is it in?

The vista on the ship bridge no longer exists. It is now on a mast jutting out from the mountain southeast of the waypoint. Updating the walkthrough now. Luke1138 (talk) 06:42, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Blind and Stupid[edit]

No matter how i go about it, I cant seem to get into the points of interest. I have the waypoint... can someone give me an idea how to get INTO the donut? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 23:51, 1 April 2013 (UTC).

Meh, with this amount of similar questions, I guess, this should be noted in the wiki... here's a quick tip: here's a breach in the canal gate, you go in and stick to the right wall. Also, signing your posts with a ~~~~ is a good sign. MalGalad 23:57, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Thx... im crap at reading maps but eventually reaized that's right off the cliff from the bank waypoint.... you're a game saver. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 00:05, 2 April 2013 (UTC).

Nectar Bar[edit]

I feel like the bar next to the eastern ward waypoint needs a landmark page, but I'm not sure what to call it, exactly. It is referred to as "that sylvari nectar bar" by one of the revelers and "the finest sylvari fern bar" by the owner, so I'm thinking fern bar is the way to go, but what syntax? Fern Bar? Sylvari Fern Bar? Or, since "fern bar" might be a generic name for sylvari nectar establishments, possibly Eastern Ward Fern Bar? The owner is Host Melydiod so posslby Melydiod Fern Bar? Psycho Robot (talk) 01:54, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

I've been tempted to do the same, since all other LA taverns are named and used by the rp community it'd be worth keeping - this is the solely unnamed bar in LA so I've been stuck at what to name it. On GWW, unofficial (aka fan-made) terms for landmarks were done full lowercase - e.g. gw1:Lyssa's ice cave (has since been given a proper name - Temple of Lyssa) - except when proper nouns were used in the landmark's name - e.g., gw1:Wizard's Folly tower. I think there was a discussion long long ago where that style should return for GW2, but there hasn't really been any unofficial locations. In this case, I would say the name should be either [[Melydiod's nectar bar]], [[Melydiod's bar]], [[sylvari nectar bar]] or along those lines - I don't think we should call it a fern bar, but rather what the owner calls it (nectar bar). And I would suggest including Melydiod's name in it to keep it from being generic. Plus Eastern Ward may return, but the bar may not. If LA is rebuilt - and done so differently than before. Konig 02:29, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
No, you misunderstand, the owner calls it a fern bar. The reveler norn woman calls it a nectar bar. Er, wait. he calls it a nectar bar too. I guess since that has two uses instead of just one, it might make more sense, but something tells me "fern bar" is more official. Psycho Robot (talk) 02:33, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Well there's a bar in the Grove. I *think* it's called a nectar bar too. Konig 02:54, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Nectar bar is fine with me, in all odds no user is going to really care. So were you thinking "Melydiod's nectar bar"? Psycho Robot (talk) 02:57, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Would be best, IMO. Konig 03:30, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Lion's Shadow Bed and Breakfast[edit]

I've been monitoring the door to this building, which is necessary for the achievement to get Princess (the dragonite ore eater). As I'm sure most know it is only open at night. And the day/night cycle is 2 hours long. The exact time that the door appears is from -:40 to -:30 To enter the building choose the option "The password is "the password.""

I'm not familiar with editing wikis or if this is information is something that should go on a page so do with it what you will :3

--AViegarien (talk) 23:42, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

   So instead of directly linked to the day/night it seems to open at set times of the real world day, which should be linked to the day/night cycle to the primary LA instance.
   The door seems to activate every odd hour (UTC) at -:40 and closes 50 mins later; it also removes all characters inside the building when it closes.

NPCs from the vaults[edit]

Should the service NPCs from the Vaults be included into the NPC section here? The Vaults is "just" a PoI and normally we document the services in the area page. But on the other hand the vaults are clearly a seperate section from the gates section, so it might be useful to keep it the way it is. Any thoughts? Balwin (talk) 11:29, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, they should. Whether we like it or not, they're a part of that area, which means they should be included. —Ventriloquist 11:32, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
