Having notes and trivia points referencing PAX in relevant articles is one thing (example: "*Tequatl Rising was unveiled at PAX 2013."), but does the wiki really need an entire page dedicated to PAX just because ANet participates? This really seems to be skirting the bounds of relevancy. Azure Fang (talk) 23:43, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Guild Wars 1[edit]

Should we include the expos that they went to that do not include any mention of Guild Wars 2? 2008, for instance, does not have any relevance to GW2. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 07:13, 31 October 2018 (UTC)


I have a picture of Bessie the griffon from the PAX 2018 News page. File:Bessie.jpg. Feel free to add it in. I'm not sure how to make it a reasonable size on the page. AnastashaRomanov (talk) 07:21, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
