Talk:Point of Interest

If I'm not mistaken, these, like the other map icons, have an 'unexplored' counterpart where the square is not filled in. Would someone be able to grab one, please? Redshift 10:31, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Indeed, they are grey/white when not explored. Not big difference, for sure, I had to check with mouseover to see if I had been to the point or not. Mediggo 10:49, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Alfa-R has created a tango icon for it, which I've added to the article. Might do a little rewrite though, it's a bit messy atm. Eerie Moss 10:50, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I tried to clean it up a little and standardize it with the other map icon articles. Redshift 11:55, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I will be creating some maps/text for some particularly nasty PoI[edit]

So others don't have to suffer the same pain. Previously Unsigned 03:43, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Anyone else totally frustrated with inaccessible points of interest?[edit]

Gawd this is a poorly designed and buggy game. So many inaccessible or extremely difficult areas, and impassable instances... reminds me of design flaws in another game called Guild Wars, but on steroids in this game.Wraitheria 21:26, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

I seriously can't say that it is problamatic to reach any POI in the game and I know this because I reached all of them. There are some Vistas which have a jumping puzzle attached to them, which can be pretty frustating, but POIs are always easy accessible. If you have troble to reach one, it is probably on a diffrent level. - Yandere Talk to me... 22:08, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
Wraitheria's obviously trolling given the whole of the comment. That, or just really really really sucks at the kinds of games which the series has been in. Konig/talk 23:18, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Where is the last one?[edit]

I added a table to the mainpage containing a count of all the POIs in the game per area. Checked it by the individual areas in wiki AND the individual areas in game. They are identical. I come to a total of 716. Which one am I missing? It isn't Claw Island, because that has 4 POIs. It isn't dungeons either, they don't count either. Anyone know?

It isn't Hall of Monuments. Already checked. Disconnect 21:03, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Did you check World versus World areas and the Heart of the Mists? They also count to world completion. Konig/talk 21:17, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the four areas of WvWvW are at the bottom of the table. Dunno about Heart of the Mists though. Someone else has to confirm that one for me Disconnect 21:20, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Added the last POI. It is in the Chantry of Secrets. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:33, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
By the way, do we really need such a table? I find it unnecessary with the individual zone articles. Besides, it needlessly elongates the article and is so clumped up together that it's hard to read, and creates a massive amount of white space. It detracts more than it adds, imo. Konig/talk 21:39, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Well, I didn't really question that, but I think one sentence would have the same information: The 717 points of interest that count for map completion are found in all regions of Tyria as well as the Borderlands, the Eternal Battlegrounds and the Chantry of Secrets. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:49, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Reason for me to make the table in the first place was because I was missing Chantry of Secrets in my list. The Article didn't hint where it was. So I verified the info on wiki using the table. It also gave me an opportunity to add my 2 cents and get a bit acquinted with making tables in wiki. Disconnect 22:39, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Some POIs move[edit]

Added the original moving POI anomaly note, and found another in the same sub-area, the Hero's Canton. Not sure of any others, but will add them as I find them. 00:48, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Arcane Council POI moves as well. Not sure every single one needs to be noted on the main page. 04:46, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

POI 723[edit]

with this update they add a new poi...where is it?

Gendarran Fields in Broadhollow Bluffs
Thank you so much!

POIs Added Post-Launch[edit]

Is there a list or other resource indicating which map elements were added to the game post-launch? On 8 August, 2017 the POI for Captain Kiel's Office was added to Lion's Arch, and I missed it in the Patch Notes, so I ended up spending about half an hour trying to figure out where my missing POI was.~ A R A ~ (talk) 14:14, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
