Gladiator Title Track[edit source]

Awww.... Anet just made this as good as worthless now.... Dirk150 21:13, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

According to the official Wiki, it's a text only change. I suppose it might indicate a later change. --Jeremy Winston 21:15, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Oh good. It can still be worth something. Dirk150 21:16, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

I hope they revert this back to normal. Not only does it invalidate the hours we spent trying to earn it, it also eliminates it's prestige since you get points for every single win, turning this into the kind of title that doesn't take skill, just time. I've almost got rank 3 and i worked very hard for many hours over a long time span...now anyone can get where I did in a few days. Please ANet, appreciate our work for the glad title and make a new title instead for individual wins. I suggest calling the first rank "Arena Challenger," then eventually "Arena Champion." Demonic Peaches 21:52, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

They could change the points at which you go up a rank to compensate. ---Sora267signature.jpg 22:12, 2 August 2007 (CDT)
Do note, that the Hero title is also a title that gives you (quote) "points for every single win, [...] that doesn't take skill, just time.". Ekhem :P — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 23:04, 2 August 2007 (CDT)
Noted, but that remark is based on the assumption that I think hero is more prestigous than the glad title, which I don't. Demonic Peaches 18:13, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

If they change the description of the title, they will also have to convert current glad points such that 1 old glad point = 25 new glad points (10 wins + 5 bonus + 10 bonus). That will compensate. 83.130.79.71 02:22, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

No it will not... out of the first glad rank, how many matches did you play to get it? Certainly not just 250, all 10 by 10 consecs. You played around 400 matches.. all won, not metioning the lost ones, to get those 10 consecutives 25 times over. So giving me 250 new glad points, saying i wont 250 matches, isent gonna cover it, since if that were the case, i should have had 400 points, and i doubt Anet has a system to count how many arena wins you have on an account.
Stop complaining. —ǥȓɩηɔɧ/ 13:56, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
Mgrinshpon, that doesn't really do it for me. You see, even if ours is increased, the challenge that we had in getting the glad title as it stands is not accurately represented. Trading 85 "streak points" for even triple that amount in "win points" is like trading $85 for triple that number in nickels. It doesn't represent the struggle and it definitely doesn't show the 9-streaks, the 7, 8, and 9 win-streaks cut off by new builds or the "misfortune" of the 9-win streak cut off by 4 Korean touchers. I don't want you to think I am bragging or that I have some sense of entitlement to have my interests protected, I just want what's truly fair to everyone. And I still don't see why they can't just make a new title. Demonic Peaches 18:13, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
If you don't like 255 dollars, than that's fine by me. Guild Wars is a game and everything you've ever done is still owned by ANet. —ǥȓɩηɔɧ/ 19:00, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
I told you, I don't say this out of a sense of entitlement - I don't expect ANet to do anything just because I say so, I'm just suggesting an alternative that might make *everyone* happy (making a new title). I know my accomplishments are part of their game and they have the right to do what they want, but in this case I feel it's not necessary, just my two cents. Demonic Peaches 21:47, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Anet gear it toward the more casual players who don't spend like 10 hours an day trying to get to the next level of Glad. And most people go for heros title instead of glad, cause 1) Glad is WAY harder to achieve than heros 2) HA gives some form of reward when you win after 12 battles, but glad only gives out 1 glad point. So i think this isn't too bad, they raised the points need to win and possibly reduced the number of quitters(they pisses me off all the time) in RA. So personally i think this is a good thing and pvp grinding isn't as easy as pve grind, as more people will be playing RA now, so the chance of getting a Glad point is also lower.

Casting Time[edit source]

I\s this new, or when hovering over a skill icon, a little clock with hands pointing toard 3 o'clock is displayed always been there? Nhnowell 23:15, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

There has always been such a thing, if it had a specific casting time. Most attack skills, all stances, Endure Pain and RaO, to name a few, don't have such a clock, because their activation time is either variable (dependant on attack speed, as with Attack Skills), or it has an instant activation. Hope that answers your question.

Aug 2nd update - Vampirism still bugged[edit source]

After this update Vampirism is still bugged and only does 10 dmg irrespective of Sunspear rank. It also does not trigger Painful Bond's dmg, I am not sure how long that has been the case. --Heurist 23:28, 2 August 2007 (CDT)

Aug 3 update and Vampirism dmg is fixed, still does not trigger Painful Bond )-:. --Heurist 22:28, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

"Miscellaneous Fixes"[edit source]

I thought the fix to remove those exploits was something from a much older update, as I clearly remember someone else asking on Talk:Game updates "Why did they remove the gold reward? Bots lolz?" And the answer was: "Yes, it may be a small amount but it is easy to set up and adds up reliably". Is this just a copy&paste error on a Wikian's part, or has ANet "fixed" a bug twice now? I am confused. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:58, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

They were different quests I think... Now its impossible to make money early in NF O_O The Imperialist
No, they just shifted the rewards. I rolled my first Nightfall character two weeks ago, and there were a lot of bots running around the first outpost, and that was after they 'fixed' the quests already. Now you won't get that reward until you pick a secondary at level 5. Any one know why the bots aren't farming Factions quests?--71.116.78.108 02:20, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
Aha, another one of ANet's notorious "oops we didn't really fix it" patches. Thanks for the clarification. I am guessing that Factions quests aren't farmed because you do not earn enough Gold from the bottable quests to pay for a Storage Vault of 100g...if I remember correctly. Either that, or because the beginning NF + Chahbek is simpler and more profitable. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 02:22, 3 August 2007 (CDT)


Maybe Anet should focus more of its energy in improving things instead of trying to find ways to prevent ppl from making money???? Just a thought.....

By stopping reroll farming of this nature, it increases the value of all other gold in the game. Arenanet just relatively made my cash more powerful without doing anything to me, I won't complain -Ezekiel 07:32, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
That increase in gold value doesn´t help you getting your armor, those prices are fixed.
Yeah, cause armour is totally the only thing you can buy, doesn't require materials that don't have fixed prices, and is exactly what Ezekiel said. Capcom 17:10, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

ascalon guards[edit source]

im not sure if i just missed this in some earlier update but didnt pre searing ascalon guards used to look like the post ones. now their armour is neater and looks nicer. --S474N1C 05:18, 3 August 2007 (CDT)


This was altered in the July 17th update, i noticed straight away but forgot to update it. Dread Pirate Fargus 09:41, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

NEW FPS[edit source]

idk how to edit the update page, the FPS now shows the background updates and how fast it is coming in, thx --Patch 07:06, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Does this only happen outside of outposts or something? Not sure I understand. I noticed myself that they seem to have fixed the bug you see when LB farming when it says " Margonites Killed" rather than "25 Margonites Killed". - Yellow Monkey 07:13, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
Well heres a screen shot hope this helps

August 3rd new update.[edit source]

Is on official wiki ^^ Copper Elf 21:24, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Aye, it is. I don't know what the copyright rules are, although I'm tempted to copy-paste it from official wiki to here. Nhnowell 21:26, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
Lol, beat you to it :P I've been trying to help out around here, since I'm usually in game when I see the updates hit, I grab them from the official wiki and put them in here. I'm still new to the whole code thing though, so its a learning experience. Isk8 21:50, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
You'll get used to it pretty easily. By the way, the total update size with -image is 2mb, not 2.3mb. --Hawk SkeerHawkicon.png 10:00, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

Reset of territories change[edit source]

Sorry if this is not at right place, i dont know where to put it, and feel free to move it.

On the french official Guild Wars web site, in the same new that say there will be another Dragon Festival, they say that they will reset the territory changes so that everyone will be back to 4 again. But why are they doing this ? -- TůζipVõrζąx Talk 22:39, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

It says the same thing on the american site. Thier explaination is because some players were to laggy to participate they are giving them another chance(Don't ask me how that will solve thier lag lol). As for the territory reset, they say they are just doing it to add to the fun. --Hawk SkeerHawkicon.png 10:08, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
The lag was because of their server problems, not due to the players. So this will be good for those who had lag then, as its most likely they wont have it now. As for the territory change... when kinda pointless really brains12 (talk) 09:19, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

New Damage Mod?[edit source]

hey guys, i just got a new Damage mod on a weapon, brand new, never seen it before in my 1 1/2 years of playing. Damage +15%, Health regeneration -1. Is this part of the update? 68.226.80.7 10:58, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

Are you sure it wasn't a vamp + other generic mod?--Gigathrash 11:01, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
I'm pretty sure these have been around always, they're just alot more rare in my experience. I've also recently had my first of these drop, in Factions iirc. I believe some of these weapons used to drop in Pre-searing and that made them very valuable for death-levellers. I think they got ditched from pre some time ago though. So to sum up I think these have been around always :) Copper Elf 12:53, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
I've seen that but 13% version, its basicly a pve pre nightfall mod(cause that as an inscription would be about 10k each so ya the health degen is because think of 15% + 20%(customized) max weapon and absouloutly no reqs to do the extra 35% damage.142.161.90.233 01:17, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
But mine is 15%. Ok i do agree with you, this has been around for awhile but its very rare. And theres no inscription for it either. I've looked up all the inscriptions and none of them matches the mod im using. And no, its not vamp. The weapon is sundering68.226.80.7 06:22, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

They do exist as prophecies, factions, and core drops, and been here for a while. there isn't an equivalent inscription. I can get shots of a sephis axe (non-insc => ch1), chaos axe (core), and archaic axe (ch2). Foo 07:04, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

Damage +15%, Health regeneration -1 is NOT new, I have found a weapon with that mod long time ago The preceding unsigned comment was added by 80.133.101.252 (contribs) .

Preorders in Storage[edit source]

Why was this a problem? -Kumdori 14:59, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

I agree, it's not like anyone other than you can use your storage to get them out. But also why would you need to put them in in the first place? All your characters can get them before they even HAVE storage. >.> In that sense, I get why Hero items were made non-storage (Well, before they were customized), since those are free max weapons. Oh well, Anet is just finding silly things to do since they have to make it look like they're not COMPLETELY focused on GW:EN. xD — NessHrinIcon.png Ness 17:21, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
I have a few weapons for my character, and I keep a bunch of them in storage to have more space for drops. If I would be using a moded bonus item there probably would be times I would want to put it in storage... — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 20:37, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
Why is it a problem that you are not able to put customised weapons in your storage? Plus, you can recreate them in case you have a full inventory, so what's your problem with it? 84.87.168.39 04:10, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, but some of the preorder items have upgrade slots, and you can't re-create the upgrade components. -- Gordon Ecker 04:12, 5 August 2007 (CDT)
I still don't get it...84.87.168.39 07:01, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

Okay then. Let's say you have a "Nevermore Flatbow". It comes with a Poisonous Bowstring already on it. Now, if you delete it and make another, you lose nothing, since that mod already comes on the item.

Now, let's say you choose to add a max, +30 Health Bow Grip of Fortitude to your Nevermore Bow. Since the /bonus weapons can no longer be Salvaged, that upgrade you applied is permanent - you cannot salvage the mod off the weapon. So, what happens if you need more storage space and you can't put this into storage? Well, if you delete it you are an idiot because you basically just deleted a perfect Bow Grip of Fortitude. So what else can you do? Not too much! This is why people are complaining: since you can't salvage the mod or put it into storage, these latest updates discourage people from adding good mods to their /bonus items. Sure you can create the item again - but you can't create a free, +30 Health Bow Grip of Fortitude with /bonus.

So basically, if you are a PvP-only player or are very rich, this doesn't matter to you much...but for most of us this seems like an unfair nerf. Now /bonus items are really only good to give to Heroes... Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 13:29, 5 August 2007 (CDT)

Or you could put a weapon that has not been summoned into storage instead. Savvy? 87.174.237.211 06:45, 6 August 2007 (CDT)

My solution would be to make them salvageable like collector weapons, guaranteed loss of weapon but you can get one mod back. Or just make them storageable, it does no harm, they are customised after all. --Heurist 04:34, 8 August 2007 (CDT)
This is what I used to do, it stopped working but I did it again today: equip the bonus weapon you want to put in storage, place a non-bonus weapon in storage, double-click the weapon in storage to equip it; it swaps places with the one you have equiped. Tada, bonus weapon in storage. I am not sure why this works at some times and not at others, will need to test more. --Heurist 13:04, 11 August 2007 (CDT)


If i have the pre other items from NF and i get the preoder items for GWEN does that mean when i type /bonus i get both sets of items or just teh GWEN ones and can no longer get the scyth and spear????

You'd get both. I get the bonus items from Nightfall and the bonus items from Factions when I type /bonus so I would imagine you'd still get all items when typing /bonus. --VallenIconwhitesmall.JPG Vallen Frostweaver 12:19, 8 August 2007 (CDT)
It kind of annoys me. I type /bonus and half of my inventory is suddenly filled with things I don't want (minus 1). Deleting everything is troublesome :/ (I have the Prophecies and Nightfall bonuses, and will soon add more garbage with GWEN :P) — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 21:15, 8 August 2007 (CDT)
I would like to see a menu open up when you type bonus that allows you to choose the item(s) that you want. 66.239.250.209 13:30, 10 August 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, something like the Mission end "Unclaimed Items" box but with a "Dismiss All" button next to the "Accept All" button, on that note I would like a "Dismiss All" on the mission end unclaimed item box. --Heurist 23:23, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

There will be problems with the Darksteel Longbow item; it will be indestructible. (I think there should be enough crossover between GW and MTG that that was worth it.) Hashmir 16:10, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

Yes, but don't forget the loophole, the controller can still sacrifice it. --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 20:43, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

W T F Exhaustion on Rit spells and binding rituals! Seriously...I don't care if it cripples Ritspike, how can a Channeling Rit play PvE at ALL now?! Screw you ANet.

Wow, they wtfpwned some skills, and yet they still COMPLETELY forgot to give Shadowsong Exhaustion (an anti-attacker totem that chucks blind at EVERYTHING near it and makes non AoM melee worthless? how did they NOT nerf that???). Heh, they also re-nerfed Spirit Rift back to 2 second cast like before. And now, ladies and gentlemen, we would like to present to you... the unfortunate burial of the once-almost-proud Power Shot! It's lived a good (but extremely rocky and disliked) life, but now it is over. May it find peace in death (since it won't find it anywhere else!). Unfortunately STILL no mention of fixing those damned stuck warriors.... --Gimmethegepgun 17:17, 9 August 2007 (CDT)
Anet is noob. They nerf ritspike which takes a lot of coordination and skill but not zergway which takes none at all (at least ritspike takes more skill than zergway). And yes a good idea would be to put a bit of nerfbat on some of the skills, not dump exhaustion on every single one!!!! -- Nova Neo-NovaSmall.jpg -- (contribs) 17:28, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

Nice, saw a lot of these skill updates coming from Izzy's page, but some huge surprises... Am I the only one that actually likes the exhaustion on some of those spirits? I mean, ouch for my energy, but after I casted one of those 25e monsters, I would be bottomed out for a while anyway. Now, I can keep those spirits up nonstop, they cost a lot less, and they last longer then the exhaustion. Still viable, just don't run two exhausters on the same bar. Channel spikers got hit hard, but many of those skills were nerfed because they were overpowered when used all at once... you can still spike just fine with the rest of the skills, and the exhaustion doesn't hurt much if you kill they guy on the first try anyway.

Let's see how this all turns out... I'm already looking forward to a few non-SP 'Sins starting to emerge, pre-EotN. --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 21:57, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

Exhaustion is really really over the top.....its insanity..

cool with this new update you can keep shadow form up permantaly with arcane ccho and deadly paradox and with 16 shadow arts.

In regard to this quote from Gaile Gray: "We scaled down a number of Ritualist damage Spells as well, to further move away from "Rit Spike" builds that combine too much damage and defense on a single character." I would reply, isn't it okay to have both damage and defense in a single character a good thing? Or maybe she meant damage and defense in a single 'profession' instead? Unless I'm reading it incorrectly, the implication is that ANet wants to focus the Ritualist profession on being healing or support only and not a direct damage profession. If this is true, I hope they don't continue down that road. In my opinion, the Ritualist was one of the most interesting professions to play because of its versatility. You could play a Rit healer, a Rit spiker, a Rit spirit spammer, a Rit supporter/buffer, or even a Rit frontliner if you really wanted to. These Rit nerfs take a good deal of the fun out of playing a Rit, especially in PvE, and being as GW is a game, taking fun out shouldn't be Anet's goal. Shadowlance 17:36, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

I must admit they did a good job on that Rit skill rebalance. They restored the fun of playing certain single-ritualist builds that used those skills while minimizing the overuse of the ritspike FOTM. GJ Anet. Shadowlance 16:58, 2 September 2007 (CDT)

holy ****[edit source]

Instead of HoH getting favor, it's now maxing out titles. GG anet...trying to make pve better than pvp:P—Cheese.jpg Cheese Slaya (Talk) 20:23, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

No, just trying to sever links. Glimmer of Light.jpg The Paintballer (T/C)
I think some of the skill nerfs (rt) are dumb as hell because they are entirely based on PvP... Rt isn't used much in PvE at all, and even less so now. However, this change is something I agree with and it should have come a long time ago. While maybe the method is odd... favor should come from PvE activities because it is a PvE benefit. Would it make sense for PvP people to not be able to do certain activities until the PvE players accomplish something? Hell no. It also didn't make sense for the PvE players to have to wait for PvP guys to win enough to get access to a PvE area. — RabiesTurtle (contribs) 20:52, 9 August 2007 (CDT)
But still... in order for anybody to get favor random ppl have to constantly earn MAXED titles. Dirk150 22:47, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

Well, you can get prestige faster now though maxing titles now i guess..... BUT this nerf on the Rits are in plain words: "dumb as hell". I mean it's not like it's pwning every single PVP build out there like iway...it's easily countered. And if people don't got the skill to overcome it, they don't. Don't help they overcome it by nerfing skills. If you're trying to make thing "fair" for everyone, why not just give every a rank 15 Hero,10 Champion and 10 Gladiator??Then we're be REALLY happy. Sandtrap 9:08 9 August, 2007 (PST)

I actually enjoyed fighting Rit Spike teams, it was always satifsying pounding them into the ground because they made us really work for it. Since I only use my ritualist for PvE I'm not particularly happy about their campaign to add exhaustion to all my skills. At least they mention right up front this is designed for ongoing testing during the week. Hopefully they'll find some other way to do that. -Gildan Bladeborn 00:21, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Hopefully they will unnerf Rit spike, it was one of the best spikes i'd seen. Sandtrap 11:12 9 August, 2007 (PST)

It was too good. They nerfed it because it was imba. —ǥȓɩηɔɧ/ 02:42, 10 August 2007 (CDT)


This is stupid, adding exhaustion to ritualist really cripple their offensive abilities. The reason why elementalists can handle exhaustion is because of energy storage and great energy management skills. This really screw them up big time. ---DK

Just my luck... I create a rit a week ago, get them up to lvl 20 and they break all of my favorite skills. Although, some of the other skill changes arn't that bad: Death's Charge, Arcane Echo and Shield Of Regeneration (I say SoR because you might be able to but it on a hero and not have them spam away their energy) And interesting way to get favor, mayhap the price of scrolls will go up.

New update.[edit source]

A small skillbalance change thingy. I don't know how to take updates from official wiki and post them here, and if I'm even allowed to Copper Elf 18:06, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Don't worry, I did it. I saw the update when I got online and came to post it. -- Marand 18:47, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Still messing around with the formula, I think. Most likely Izzy or someone else is watching how people deal with the huge nerf... the Exhaustion doesn't hurt the first spike, but makes killing more then the first target impossible, as far as I can tell. By messing around with recharges and downsides, they're trying to find an even ground... --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 20:44, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Item duplication![edit source]

Yowza... I came back about a week ago and I was wondering why the economy was looking poor... I guess I shouldn't attribute it to this, but damn if it didn't hurt the economy a bit. Mightywayne 08:47, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

It's awesome. My leftover gems from DoA (including 11 titans) are now worth about as much as a bottle of rice wine. And if they duplicated pandas i'll be seriously pissed off. Course I wasnt planning on selling mine but godamn it, I worked hard to pay for it! NightAngel 09:00, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

The Rollback would be several days long. I don't think that's gonna happen. If it did it would be the 2nd rollback in the history of GW after The Black Monday. And that one was only several hours worth. I really hope that tracking down multiple reconnects one after another is fairly easy and the guilty will be blocked, and the items destroyed.

Gem prices seemed to be fine to me - i sold another 5 Torment gems for 4K a piece last night in the thick of it all - i noticed titans are worth 12K approx but they had been getting cheaper and cheaper for a while - still i hope that Anet get the dupers cause it will destroy the economy - or at least there will be some people out there with tonnes of money they shouldnt have--XisdedOne 18:55, 13 August 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, I actually kinda have a feeling this really won't mean much. I mean people have probably raped the economy a bit, but really, they started the bans that night, so the damage control I must say looks to be okay.

By lazy I mean the fact that they use shortcuts to make money rather then work for it. Anet hasn't done anything wrong, was just annoying to loose that progress.
Gimmethegepgun, the bugged warriors actually give the other team a chance to step off the portal without being swarmed by 8 hammer wielding warriors, if they fix that bug without balancing luxons down then theres something to complain about.... --69.145.194.67 13:18, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
Do you have any idea what you're talking about? When they step off the portal they should be prepared to be swarmed. In any case, the bug NEEDS to be fixed because it is a gamebreaking bug: The wars won't move again and since no one kills them, the turtle and its warrior guards won't respawn again. That affects the game far more than you being smashed to bits because you're stupid enough to go through portal when the wars are there --Gimmethegepgun 13:21, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
A bug that prevents a extremely overpowered npc from being used until someone is stupid enough to kill the warriors... which many people are, theres always someone who kills the stuck warriors, you obviously do not know what you are talking about. Anyways luxons have no right to complain about FA. They always have had advantages and when they get a minor disadvantage they all start bitching. FYI: either step off the portal, stay put and let green gate fall, or open the green gate and let them, what exactly are you supposed to do to defend?--69.145.194.67 13:41, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
FYI, I play kurzick side quite often and I know that almost all the time someone is smart enough to stop the noobs from killing the wars. Second, this isn't a "minor disadvantage", it removes one of their ONLY advantage, and their biggest one. Also, when the wars AREN'T stuck and the turtles are pounding us, unless there's a monk, I can usually end up killing a turtle after 2 tries or so despite the large number of hammers hitting me and the fact that I rarely bring a defensive skill. Maybe you just need to avoid the warriors a little bit and hit the turtle? --Gimmethegepgun 13:50, 14 August 2007 (CDT)

Or, maybe, you should realize that's a shitty solution to a problem. Imagine ANet saying that. "Yeah hi, we're not going to fix the dupe problem. If you don't like it, go play WoW instead!"

Not being a programmer maybe this is not possible considering the scope of a game like GW, but reading about this exploit made me wonder how tough it would be for ANet to serialize all in-game items. (A hidden attribute generated on drops, when an item is crafted, etc.) It might help mitigate future duplication exploits anyway. Shadowlance 18:16, 15 August 2007 (CDT)

According to Gaile on GW Guru forum they can do all that: "Did you think we'd never notice? Of course we noticed! Our recordkeeping is exceptionally detailed. You can't move a piece of gold from one bag to another without us knowing it. And as a result, those at the center of abusing this exploit were banned. That is as it should be." .... --- :Jill Bioskop X(T|C) 20:37, 15 August 2007 (CDT)

I can see it now. Me:"So Gaile, we heard that you finally solved the duplication mystery. So who were the culprits exactly duplicating the items?" Gaile:"Our sources indicate the Koreans." Me:"Really? Mind explaining what the evidence was?" Gaile:"Well, we started by questioning random people in all the districts around the world. We began with the American districts, and finally moved to the Korean districts. It was there, where we recieved our first clue." Me: "So what was it...?" Gaile:"Well, we began questioning...and were returned with nothing but gibberish! We asked them politely to speak in American...but to no avail. At that point we knew...they were most definately hiding something." Me:"Are you positive they were trying to hide anything?" Gaile:"Readem, do you not understand that we can track gold transfer! If we can do that, we can most certainly detect if someone is lying through in-game chat...lol." Me:"Is that the only piece of evidence you have collected!?" Gaile:"You are so ridiculous, lol! What more is needed? The Koreans begin duplicating Rare Equipment...thus giving them a distinctive edge in GvG! Don't you understand...they had 18-21 dmg Swords with extremely rare skins...the average AR for the Korean Warrior was 80! They simply could not be beaten with such equipment...and thus, to punish them, they will get less favor than before!" Me:"..." Readem (talk*contribs) 23:08, 15 August 2007 (CDT)

Silent 14th update[edit source]

Update - Tuesday, August 14, 2007

  • Fixed a bug in the encounter with Mallyx the Unyielding that caused his Summoning Shadows skill to ignore its recharge time.
  • The damage of Mallyx the Unyielding's Shadow Smash skill has been reduced to 150.

Yeah, but now they've assured that no one will ever use Fox, even though it has ½ activation now, since it does less damage and has a longer recharge than Wild. My favorite part of the update is probably the WoP change, now I don't see any reason why a PvE sin wouldn't staple it to his bar right now (btw, I'm renting out industrial strength staple guns, pm me for more info :P ) --Gimmethegepgun 13:47, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

Heh heh, spirit burn actually burns now XD Dirk150 13:40, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

Check it out guys:

Golden Fox Strike.jpgWild Strike.jpgShattering Assault.jpg

Four second recharge, unblockable, defense-shattering attack chain. Add in a golden lotus for energy recovery, or a golden fang strike for DW. and we're talking some amazing ownage. --Ckal Ktak 16:50, 18 August 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, Izzy's really trying to push some new 'Sin meta builds out there; SP and Moebius are getting old. Shattering will see some use, as there's always room for a build that rips off two enchantments every 5~ seconds... the recent buff on Golden Phoenix Strike was meant to push AoD builds back into use, possibly.
And yeah, 1/2 activation on Fox Fangs is still nothing special. Nine Tail Strike still doesn't get buffed at all either. The Fox lineup needs a bit more to it then "unblockable"... reducing the recharge on Golden Fox Strike was nice, but it still leaves the rest of the chain high and dry. Would be nice to see Nine Tail Strike get the same activation time as Fangs, though... Pulling off your entire chain in little over 1.5 seconds would be nice. --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 16:57, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

I posted in the off-hands page: The activation times added to some of the offhands in the latest update are cool, it kinda makes sense from a technical point of view (offhand is a quick, mid-combo attack to carry the rest of the chain), and it makes lead>off>dual combos more attractive. But I think a .5 sec activation time should be added to all offhands that can only be used after a lead. I think this is a step in the right direction to getting people away from typical SP/hex+off>dual>off>dual chains. Maybe even add a modifier so that duals preceded by one of these offhands get their activation reduced to 3/4 or something, making a full lead>off>dual combo feel more fluid/Assassin-y. Thoughts? - Insidious420 15:36, 21 August 2007 (CDT)

Req. 8 (and lower) items[edit source]

Recently I hear those rumours from more and more people that items with less than req. 9 can't be found anymore. Since I often read the update notes here I can't remember anything like that. So where does it come from and is there any truth in it? --Birchwooda Treehug 02:19, 20 August 2007 (CDT)

update[edit source]

they added reconnect button back well i got it

they deleted glad titles, bad update i think

they made it so first glad title needs 500 points, but still 1 point in 10 wins o.0
what did they change in the EULA?
Probably something pertaining to duping :P The Imperialist
can someone verify that?

Nerfbat on margonite farming? ive done 4 runs since update, thats about 284 margonites dead in hard mode. Not a single gold drop, only 1-2 grapes. Must they nerf every form of currency income in the game? i mean damn, the only way to make money is vanquish for an hour, to get 1k or so.


All the Lion reserves, Minisrty workers, and Shorewathers have been deleted, please include this in the updates. thx--Patch 18:57, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

I lost my Gladiator Title (Rank 2) with the first update, and the second one restored it...but I went from having zero Faction to having 10,000.

Theres a map for command post now, when you hit "m" for the world map. Might be so for other dungeon-esque areas, such as undercity or the caverns.--Idiot 23:59, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

charge-back?[edit source]

What do they mean with "charge-back"? (something to do with the new change of terms).--200.88.135.164 21:14, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

A charge-back is when you pay for something on a credit card, get the item, and then call your credit card company, saying that it was a fraudulent charge. Apparently, it's something botters/scammers overseas do *a lot* of, according to Gaile.

Hard mode unavailable?[edit source]

This morning I was farming Corsairs outside Zehlon... In hardmode. So appareantly the note isn't true. Ì wonder who added it, and why they thought it was unavailable. Maybe at certain outposts? Copper Elf 01:56, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

It has been made unavailable with the most recent change about 15 minutes ago. It's probably to disallow HM for the GW:EN sneek peek. --Roland icon.pngRoland of Gilead (talk) 01:59, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

That wouldn't make much sense to me... It seems like they would have just disabled hard mode in GW:EN. Maybe they are planning on making it so you have to beat gwen in order to get hard mode? I hope not...

When Gaile was online this morning, someone drew attention to a problem with the Hard Mode button. She said it will probably be fixed after the GW:EN event.
Confirmed. ANet broadcast a message saying that removing HM was an error that will be fixed. --Roland icon.pngRoland of Gilead (talk) 03:02, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

okay.. I play GW every day (almost) and when I got on this morning (4:30AM EST) I had to download an update (meaning the update was somewhere 12PM - 4AM EST yesterday) and I'm sitting here on guildwiki, and I look back over at GW (6:13) and it says, New Buil of gW is availabe...

Lots of people reporting the online store is bugged after this update, seems to be telling people they've bought products they haven't while not allowing access to that content....fixed hard mode...broke store...Anet ftw

Yes, ANet FTW, and I don't mean that sarcastically. Ever had the pleasure of playing Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2142 by EA Games? EVERY patch they release fixes a glitch, and creates a new one. But you need to download these massive patches online via their store program, and they only release patches about once a month, or more. So you get stuck with glitches and exploits for weeks before anything happens. ANet fixes things within hours, and also listens to people when they complain. That right there is why they can count on me to be first in line for GW2, and I've already pre-ordered EotN (which is AWESOME, by the way). --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 06:00, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

New EULA[edit source]

Anyone else have to agree to another EULA after the Friday update? i had already agreed to one after the other update so is this another revision again?

And in today's (Saturday) update i had to agree to a new EULA, after Friday's update.
I only had to agree once, after the first update. Did you log into your account any differently then normal or something? I have mine setup to remember my account name and automatically enter my password... maybe if you have your game set up differently, it might not have "remembered" that you accepted the first time. --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 05:12, 25 August 2007 (CDT)
My client is set with the account name and pass command. What I'm saying is that after accepting Friday's update, when i was playing today, it showed me to exit the program cause of a new update. So I exited, runned the -image command, then my account, and then it asked me to accept or decline the EULA again.
Yeah, I also has to accept another new EULA (And I log in normally) — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 06:18, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

If anyone cares, it looks like ~24mb, in 200 files. Foo 02:56, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

I was big - who knows85.25.141.60 05:00, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

They FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY fixed the clipping issues with a LOT of shields (example Diamond Aegis) and (at least Female) Monks. Added a note to the main page. Confirmed this in game with Diamond Aegis and Gloom shield. - Yellow Monkey 09:54, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

They also turned Lion's Arch back to how it was before the earthquakes started. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not, since the fissure in North Kryta Province definitely exists. - Yossitaru 10:03, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

I think that the earthquakes are only for when EotN first appears; that was the sneak-peek. Consider the pre-order-ers the "scouts"; earthquakes open fissures and holes, "scouts" go in (but not too far), everything stops shaking (towns are returned to their former glory, rats and oozes are chased out), then all those adventurers (people that bought the game) start rolling out. Yay!~ --GEO-logo.png Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 10:49, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
Ritualist Armor/Mesmer Primeval is NOT invisible for myself or my friend. This appears to be a graphics-card based issue, so I have changed the update notes to say this. - Yellow Monkey 11:13, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
Well from the looks of it most people have the invisible issue. Its a pretty big problem.Streetp 14:55, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, my Ritualist is invisible since this patch unless I remove his armor and then put it back on. Clay85 17:19, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

One thing that I noticed they fixed was the consumables. A little heart broken over it personally. Over the preview weekend I got high enough on the Norn Title Track to craft consumables. More specifically, Star of Transference. I was creating them in batches of 25, and it was only using 1 skill point instead of 25 skill points. So basically I added skill points to my character. I would double click them all to gain 24 skill points. Ran out of money and materials. But it is fixed to use 25 skill points now. Glassman324 09:40, 31 August 2007 (CDT)

They probably ran into more people doing just that, using the stars to create more points. No doubt they fixed it once they saw them being used that way; I can't imagine the Star of Transference was ever meant for anything more then, well, transferring points. --GEO-logo.png Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 19:03, 8 September 2007 (CDT)


Im am 100% sure this update is not only what they say - I do farm in UW and FoW and after the update ..i just CANT do it any more. The Shadow Warrior that used to attack me now stop attacking - they just run away from me and now STAY away ..even if they r still in my agro-circle they wont attack?? I had this "new act" confirmed with 4 other who tryid this out and confirmed the new problem!! --Looses 13:53, 18 September 2007 (CDT)

Wrong Guild[edit source]

I noticed I was in the wrong guild today, did anyone else notice this or was it a fluke? Just wondering if it could be a new bug introduced with last patch, never seen this before. --Lexxor 11:20, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

Do you mean GuildHall or Guild? Because, when you leave a guild and you still leave a character in their GuildHall, your character will remain there until you log in with it again and then it moves to where-ever your character was before he went to that GuildHall. That's always been that way, and not a bug imo. Blaze 00:52, 31 August 2007 (CDT)

GW:EN pets fixed[edit source]

Since yesterday's update, Eye of the the North pets grow as they are supposed to when they level up, and the evolved forms gain their specific abilities. As an undocumented bug fix, it ought to be noted. -1:45 PM (GMT -6), August 30 2007

add note about nesting material?[edit source]

For the latest update should there be a note about the text for the nesting material changing? I'm kinda new to wiki so I don't want to try and edit the page and screw things up :/ Kett 20:01, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

WTF.......[edit source]

I stayed a little longer in LA without downloading patch....and trust me it was weird!I 1st was alone in full GH,then with 4 ppl in 5 dis town.....Is this always happening,or only this patch?

It's always like this if you don't get the new build initially.
It's because that when you haven't updated, you can only see the people that hasn't updated too. Because you aren't allowed to team up with people that has a newer version of the game. Copper Elf 18:03, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

LOL, I was out for about 4 hours once, left with GW on, came back, nobody was there and my message board was filled with "there is a new update, please exit(not exact)" . But it was funny cuz Lion's Arch was completely empty---DK

sept 1st update[edit source]

i just logged to gw, anyone wanna fill me in on how old the build is, i played this mourning at 8:45 and i dident dwnload anything.orao de seno is not a mexican person he just likes the name. 17:52, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

It's from today. Incredibly long time to post what it is. I'm not logging out til I know what it is. Probably for several hours now. Someone claims it buffed Avatar of Melandru. If anyone knows what it was/is it would be aprreciated.--Cursed Condemner 19:15, 1 September 2007 (CDT)
I believe it was around 11:00 AM Pacific. I'm also still in the old build in case they nerfed Secret Lair.
The Wintergreen and Candy Cane Bows now say two-handed longbow and have the range of a longbow it seems...Darklink
Didn't they say so before? Blaze 08:07, 2 September 2007 (CDT)
The page for them still says that they act like shortbows...and I know I recently looked at mine and it didn't say the type of bow before...Darklink 11:02, 2 September 2007 (CDT)
so was september frist a ghost update???
No the info is on the official Wiki, guildwars.com hardly gets updated in the weekends. Blaze 12:19, 2 September 2007 (CDT)

okay another update I DEMAND FREAKING NOTES FROM ANET[edit source]

geezz the last update there was two builds nothing happened....orao de seno is not a mexican person he just likes the name. 22:55, 4 September 2007 (CDT)

Anet's official Wiki seems to be the one which gets updated first, so you might wanna check there first for new update notes. Copper Elf 03:30, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
That's where we all check first. And ANet has been very quiet lately during updates... including the one that happened tonight. Henri Blanche 21:30, 6 September 2007 (EDT)
Settle down Beavis. Who are you to demand notes?
Obviously a player, jackass. Mightywayne 08:22, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
No offense, but don't act like a douche. This is not the official wiki. Updates here are posted by the users, not by Anet. Sirocco 08:40, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
Stand back Mightywayne the Mightyasshole has an opinion.

Incoming...[edit source]

New Update, let's star checking. Weekend related may be?Ereanorsign.jpgPvEreanor 21:47, 6 September 2007 (CDT)

It was on official wiki the second we got the new build message. TulipVorlax 22:08, 6 September 2007 (CDT)
But they don't have GuildWiki notes.Ereanorsign.jpgPvEreanor 22:10, 6 September 2007 (CDT)
Yeah i like thoses too. ;-) TulipVorlax 00:57, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

Engine support[edit source]

The update from 6th September now support my Nvidia Ti 5600 Chipset, the Fire animation from login screen & elsewhere in the game is animated now. (The Flame was not moved until now) --85.127.240.201 07:35, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

13 september 2007[edit source]

i think there was some gwen skill balance or at least they modded burning shield Dunkoro 09:57, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

No more naked norn[edit source]

He's gone :( I wonder if he'll ever pop up again... Tain 20:33, 17 September 2007 (CDT)

Lol, "Removed a graphical glitch that appeared while viewing some Norn bridges in first-person view."
o.O anyone got a screen? I can't imagine how did it look lol! Nevermind, found it here. 83.31.49.22 10:02, 18 September 2007 (CDT)

lol, 'find the naked man' scavanger hunt in GW...so should be a festival event205.141.247.28 19:12, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

Never played a dragon festival game, but THAT's something I would waste time on gladly! Tain 19:13, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

Crash detection?[edit source]

I've had my GW client crash occasionally - I can close it, then reconnect to my old session (good work ANet). The last time I had this happen, I got a new dialogue pop up, asking to send some crash data to ANet. This was NOT the Windows popup. Unfortunately... that dialog was crashed too. Is this new, or was my latest crash different? 82.0.165.189 06:03, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

Don't know anything about that, but if there is an internal bug report then that's good, since bugs that crash the client can be diagnosed better. — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 09:22, 19 September 2007 (CDT)
Its been happening to me since the Sept. 13th update. Always happens to me when I'm going from a busy town to an explorable zone. I hope its nothing big. Ferdoc 17:08, 19 September 2007 (CDT)
Ah, if someone else has seen this before the latest update... I've certainly had a crash between the two, so I'm not in a position to date it exactly. Ah well. 82.152.98.167 18:32, 19 September 2007 (CDT)
As far as I can remember, it's always had crash detection. It always popped up when I had problems with the Sorrows Furnace Mini-pak from DirectSong because my Windows Media Player was set to not aquire licenses automatically, causing the game to crash the instant I set foot in Grenth's Footprint. --Kale Ironfist 19:10, 19 September 2007 (CDT)

I dunno about crashing but mine isn't working period,everytime i open it it just says connecting to arenanet,and it just sits there,anyone else have this problem?

Check your firewall and router... — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o, 05:40, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

Another Stealth Update?[edit source]

Did they recently make another stealth update? It seems something has changed and access to Eyes of The North is now Blocked. Currently the Crevasses are still missing from all three campaigns, making the completion of the quests to get to Eyes of The North impossible to complete, as there is no Crevasse to click and enter into. ~ User:J.Kougar J.Kougar 07:14, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

Re: Stealth Update[edit source]

I have noticed this too. You can't enter the Chasms at all, although they are still there aesthetically. I sent a bug report to support.

My guildmate and I tried to get into the chasm in Kryta, and then in Kaineng, with no success on either front. This is ridiculous.
Agreed - I have two characters in EoTN already, but cannot get my third character there right now. I accept the unlock quest, but the crevace doesn't appear as a clickable link. It is frustrating. Shadowlance 14:16, 23 September 2007 (CDT)
They just fixed it - new build released. Shadowlance 15:56, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

Archive?[edit source]

73 kilobytes... time for another archive?--Marcopolo47 signature new.jpg (Talk) (Contr.) 13:59, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

FINALLY!!![edit source]

ANet FINALLY decides to something PRODUCTIVE against leechers! GOD what took them so long? Also, as a side note, the formatting on this page is screwed up, the bar on top is small and positioned improperly, I think it's an open HTML tag or something (similar situation happened with Entropy) --Gimmethegepgun 23:42, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, you think its all well and good but you're not standing around RA with dishonor for no reason. I have never been so... well I'm annoyed because I know I'm not an ass, I don't rage, I always have good sportsmanship and well its lame. —JediRogue 00:29, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Then why do you have dishonor? --Gimmethegepgun 00:30, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
The dishonor system doesn't work because people are not honorable. Simple. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:31, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh actually, I left a match because it was over but our last guy hadn't died yet. So what? Now, I have to wait around while the wammo/escape ranger/shadow form sin gets chased down by the other team? Is that how it works? In any case, why should I trust a bunch of other players not to report me cause it amuses them? This whole system seems a little trusting at the moment. —JediRogue 00:32, 28 September 2007 (UTC) +
Lolol, Perma Shadow Form or Terra Tank seeks same to report leavers! >.> Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:34, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Round time limits and the chance that the spurious reporters will pick up dishonor themselves would seem to at least partially address your concerns. 65.92.150.79 05:04, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
"Players who report a team member for leeching without a third of their team also reporting that player will also receive 2 dishonor points." Great, so when I report a leecher but the rest of my team doesn't feel like it I get dishonor points? Whos going bother reporting someone if they might get the dishonor points instead?Sage Of The Wise 16:47, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Now if only Anet would bring in an "honor system" with it, so players who do a kind / generous act can also be recognised. Sadly, either system, likely going to be abused and only create more support work for Anet staff. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 00:47, 28 September 2007 (UTC) PS: Should this be moved to the Sept 27th, 2007's talk page?
