Doesn't 'Guild Wars' count as the IP Guild Wars as well? Should we not include way more info on the universe itself? --Naoroji User Naoroji Golem - Green.jpg 22:18, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

IP Guild Wars? -- Konig/talk 02:05, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Maybe he's reffering to The Guild Wars, you know, when the guild warred? Eive Talk Windgrace 03:30, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Although this is rather late; that should be on here. Wiki's page has just way too much info. Also suggest that that page has "For more information, view [[gw2:Guild Wars|here]] Perhaps. - Lucian User Lucian.png 4:29, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
Scratch that... The Guild Wars already exists. - Lucian User Lucian.png 4:31, 8 February 2011 (UTC)


What with all the HoM buzz going around, I was thinking: Shouldn't this, at the very least, link to the HoM page; and wouldn't it be better to go a bit more in-depth than that? Zolann The IrreverentUser Zolann The Irreverent Mysterious Summoning Stone.png 22:53, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Is it good?[edit]

Im very much out of games to play and Im wondering if it would be worth buying this, until GW2 are out? Lhimez 16:33, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

I may be biased, but I'd say yes, yes it is. The complete collection is dirty cheap at retail stores these days and you can easily pump in thousands upon thousands hours of gameplay. If you like level grind, however, Guild Wars isn't a game worth looking at (because level grinders typically rage at not being able to attain a higher level, which makes them feel as though there is nothing left to do, which in turn is downright moronic). - Infinite - talk 17:00, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
Grinders are no-lifers ;) And thats the point why I wanna buy GW1: not to become one. So, thanks! Lhimez 17:04, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
Guild Wars isn't that much grind as you think it is, and if you experience it as such I'll be able to help you! ^^ anyhow the extra lore,rewards and experience are great to have! :) --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 17:06, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, so... One question: when you hit max level, are the campaigns supposed to be over, or do you just continue playing as before? Lhimez 17:55, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
You're intended to reach max level long before the end of the campaigns. The rest of the game is gaining skills (particularly elite skills), finishing the campaigns, and then grinding for titles (which in turn give you rewards in GW2) or playing gw1:Hard mode, gw1:challenge missions, and expansion content (like gw1:Guild Wars Beyond) to test your mettle. And as PvP goes, there are competitive missions, straight killcount/extermination games, Heroes' Ascent and GvG (the most advanced), and special PvP holiday events. Any of these can be jumped into at any time with a PvP character, which is created at max level with access to max armor and weapons (without mods).
In short, there's plenty to do after maxing, since leveling is the method by which you progress, but it happens so naturally that it never becomes and end in and of itself. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 20:09, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Origin of the name[edit]

Basically I've seen this come up quite a lot (usually on the GW2 subreddit), where people will ask why the game's called "Guild Wars". I always say it's from the lore event "The Guild Wars" as this page says, however others maintain that it was from the GvG game type (in GW1 anyway) and the lore was added later. Does anybody have any official source to backup either claim so we can get this put to rest as currently the page doesn't have any citation for this bit of information? 15:28, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
