... Spells? Turning it into skills. --Naoroji User Naoroji Golem - Green.jpg 20:11, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Correct me if I'm wrong but the 2 skills on the list that WERE shouts in guild wars 1 are still shouts wtf u talking about spells. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
The official site says that Shouts are spells. --User Phnzdvn sig.pnghnzdvn 20:29, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
As Phnzdvn said. I know, it's weird D: --Naoroji User Naoroji Golem - Green.jpg 20:29, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Where does the official site say this, under the warrior page it clearly says SKILLS. Aquadrizzt The Weapon Master 02:47, 15 June 2010 (UTC)


Would it be considered speculation if I write "give boons to allies" instead of bonuses? Chriskang 08:22, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Was it said anywhere that shouts give boons? -- Konig/talk 08:24, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
For Great Justice. I guess the question is - are boons the only way ally bonuses are conferred in GW2? I'm not sure we've got enough to say either way yet? I do like your idea though Chris. :) -- Aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 08:49, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) It was said that buffs on self and allies are now regrouped under the word "boon". So, I don't think the "bonuses" granted by shouts could be anything else than that. In my understanding, shouts, banners and stances actually apply boons to the people they affect. And the passive effect of signets might be a boon too. Chriskang 08:56, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I think this would be a great interview question - to investigate the types of boons, how they stack and whether there are other types of buffs in the game. -- Aspectacle User Aspectacle.png 22:42, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Well, as a word without context, "boon" simply means a beneficial effect (a synonym for buff). I don't think it's been mentioned whether it's a type of mechanic or simply used as a descriptive word, but it'd be a good question to ask. --Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png (Talk) 23:31, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Ohp, never mind, just read the Italia interview. Disregard my last. --Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png (Talk) 20:01, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


Certainly all shouts will have quotes as we know them? ("Retreat!" <> For Great Justice!) - Infinite - talk 04:03, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

You mean the ones that pop up over their head? Yeah, I had the same thing in mind, (wish I got to play the demo :S) Oh, do we know whether or not shouts have an activation time? Something noteworthy for new players. (Xu Davella 03:32, 31 January 2011 (UTC))
I actually mean in the skill names themselves as well. :P - Infinite - talk 08:24, 31 January 2011 (UTC)


Does the word "debuff" really exist? I know it is used by some players but is it correct? Corvus 14:03, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia says yes. Chriskang 14:26, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Why is this page so lacking?[edit]

Only 1 guardian shout and 4 warrior ones? Not sure how to edit the page to fill the rest up, it seems to be locked somehow? Would love to help but I don't know how.

See site notice, everything is broken. They will appear once the wiki gets fixed. DJemba (talk) 10:25, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
