Is the game down ? I live in callahan florida. Gild 1 and 2 is not coming up to run, is it down ? Darrell [edit ]

Is the game down ? I live in callahan florida. Gild 1 and 2 is not coming up to run, is it down ? Darrell — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( talk ) at 17:46, 3 July 2019‎ ( UTC ) .

If the game is down, then it will likely be only temporary. You can keep an eye on their twitter account for updates: Greener (talk) 17:59, 3 July 2019 (UTC) is spooling chat from kama amer d1 so its gotta be a localized outage if anything.

Compass Hero Movement [edit ]

Why can I no longer move and set my Henchmen or Heroes using the circumnavigate feature ? My 4 campaign charge 20 Character ca n’t use the compass movement for my Heroes. 21:56, 5 July 2019 ( UTC )

Devoting miniskirt in HOM [edit ]

I have devoted miniskirt before to my display but now I cant add any of my others even though it shows the miniskirt still available. How can I add them to my tapestry ? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( talk ) at 19:08, 14 July 2019‎ ( UTC ) .

Only thing I can think of is… Each character must add a tapestry to each monument to be able to show stuff. Did you maybe do the tapestry and dedicate minis on a different character? Durp da durp (talk) 19:15, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

No, same character and tapestry is still on display —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 19:24, 14 July 2019‎‎ (UTC).

just inside the door is Kimmes, you may be set to ‘account view’ for achievements, you can only add things in personal view… other than that, i’m at a loss. Durp da durp (talk) 19:51, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

You want to tell me why I and many many loyal players of this dying game can’t log in to KAMADAN ? Days now it hangs and nothing proceeds. I even uninstalled \ to make sure it was n’t my loader, or computer. Nope, it is the Outpost not loading at all. not cool as many newfangled players are frustrated already with the game and the glitches. How come recently things are let swoop. besides. The quest for the Cemetery for Guard posts two did n’t evening acknowledge and that pissed me off. I had to do the mission three times and every time, it did n’t clear the posts ! All the foes, the guardsman were killed. I successfully killed them and disabled all the traps. Next. When I try to do the weapon 20 % to customize it. The action won’t allow it to be customized. As for GuildWars 2. not a bunch of positive comments from people. Thanks for listening to me, I hope you look into this because the game is distillery being sold and it should not be let go all because you made a game that is not at all what the around-the-clock hype made it out to be. It is n’t all that. ocular yes, but game play etc. Awful. Should have left it be. GuildWars used to be so fun, now it is turning into a digest. Glitch bug bug .

This kamadan thing has only been happening for the past 8hrs or so, not days. It happened once before and is probably a problem at AWS (amazon web services, gw servers are on amazon servers). It is only amer district of kama/gtob/pre ascalon. Login on any character that is is any other town. Change to international district, that is account wide. After doing so, you can login on any character and play as normal with no issues. The 2 devs left on gw1 are in usa, they have to sleep once in a while. This is a community wiki, not a direct line to the developers. Durp da durp (talk) 07:47, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

boss summoning and node/ club wars [edit ]

sol im trying to summon the boss Bheg but every time I try to summon him, via scroll in my inventory I get the message “ you can not attack the summon boss on servers with node/conquest wars in progress. I ca n’t progress through the history without killing this boss. is there a server in which does n’t allow this stuff, just so I can get on with the game. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( talk ) at 01:40, 25 October 2019‎ ( UTC ) .

This is the wiki for the game Guild Wars. I believe you are looking for information about a different game, Black Desert Online, and I can only wish you the best in finding the information you need. Greener (talk) 01:58, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Getting to Lions Arch from the Nightfall political campaign ( Khamadan ) [edit ]

I ‘ve got a degree 14 quality and have consulted the wiki 3 or 4 times I think you ‘re supposed to see Tenderlin or Mhenlo done both Tenderlin does n’t work and ca n’t find Mhenlo ( not at docks ) I ‘m doing something improper ca n’t figure out what though. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( speak ) .

You need to have completed The Time is Nigh to get Deras Tenderlin to give you the quest ShadowRunner 11:57, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

char slots [edit ]

what is the soap allotted char. slots per explanation ? by this I mean after buying expansion slots how many in sum can 1 bill have ? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( lecture ) at 02:41, 15 March 2020‎ ( UTC ) .

The information you’re looking for is on our character slot page. Twenty-eight is the current maximum. Greener (talk) 08:27, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

To further clarify this. Each account can purchase up to 28 additional character slots. Each expansion; ie. Prophecies Factions and Nightfall, each awards the player with two (2) character slots each.

so in decision. Have the three expansions + purchase of 28 extra character slots, you will have 34 in total. TikkaLeFem ( spill the beans ) 00:43, 11 January 2021 ( UTC )

The maximum amount of characters per account is 36. Each account can purchase up to 26 additional character slots. Each expansion awards the player with; ie. Prophecies – four (4) character slots, Factions – two (2) character slots and Nightfall – two (2) character slots. So in conclusion; having the three expansions + purchase of 26 additional character slots, you will have 34 in total and the only known way to get the full 36 is by acquiring the ‘Collectors Edition’ of select expansions.

Obtaining heroes / redeeming in plot rewards [edit ]

Bought the accomplished edition yesterday and started with factions ( because it ’ south what I started with years ago ) But what I ’ d like to do is get to level ten-spot and go over to the twilight region to get my heroes, then go back and continue to level and upgrade my heroes while one flush. thus basically I wang to play through the hale arrant edition with heroes alternatively of partying up. Is this possible ? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( speak ). besides when buy said edition it said I got a crowd of loose stuff. But I have no idea how to redeem

Yes, possible. It will be a bit tough in teh very beginning, since you won’t have skills unlocked for your heroes and won’t have money to upgrade their equipment. So you might want to consider using henchmen instead. For example, at a certain point they get elite skills, which your heroes might still lack.

Steve1 follow up wonder [edit ]

You answered my ( heroes and rewards question ). But the veridical motion is “ how do I go from factions political campaign sphere to the twilight sphere to obtain the heroes ? ” — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( lecture ) .

You finish the 2 missions on SHing Jea Island, (following th eprimary quest) use the ferry from Seitung Harbor to the Kaineng Docks. Then unlock The Marketplace by folloing the quest. There, you ignore the primary quest and go north thru Bukdek Byway to Kaineng Centre (there you can also find max armor). From there you can go to the Nightfall Campaign using the quest Sunspears in Cantha. In parallel, you can go slightly south from Kaineng Centre and thru the Chasm to go to Eye of the North and unlock 3 heroes there (2 immediately and getting Gwen is also extremely easy / quick. Steve1 (talk) 15:16, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks man I remember kaineng was the big marketplace but that’s all I remembered😂

Thank you for your avail — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( talk ) .

avail ! where is the quality diagnose login ? [edit ]

one cant find the character name motion on the login screen ? did they remove it and can we still log in ? 00:14, 31 October 2020 ( UTC )

It was removed, now you can sign up for 2 step verification using sms to your phone for added security instead. (btw you use the gw2 site support section to do it iirc, ur gw accnt info is shared between games) Durp da durp (talk) 00:42, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

silver zaishen coins have turned into kournan coins

No. Steve1 (talk) 20:26, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Kournan Coins are reward trophies obtained from completing many quests in Kourna. and A Zaishen Coin is a reward trophy obtained by completing Zaishen Challenge Quests, as a random drop from Zaishen Strongboxes or as a award for completing certain non-Zaishen Challenge quests (e.g. The Rescue Attempt). so, no.

black dye [edit ]

It seems like bootleg dye is no longer available. Has it been terminated ? besides, is there a way to mix different dyes to make it kinda black ? I ‘ve tried everything. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by ( talk ) .

The dye trader works according to demand and supply (like material and rune traders). If too many players bought black dye recently, the traders will have zero black dyes for sale for a while. This eventually resets again, but until that happens the only way to obtain some is buying from other players or as drops from enemies in PvE. – Infinitetalk 23:21, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

the reason theres no black dye is because the trader is bugged on the black itself, the value is currently 550g, but it will only offer 1g, and nobody will sell the black dye for 1g, thats how the stock will never be replenish. Ive opened a support ticket for this and they basicly not gonna do anything about it, apparently. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

classic anet… i was wondering this too… why support company doesn’t help its games? 15:46, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

My feeling is a glitch, since this seems to be happening since February and here it is almost June – or – Simply a “Supply / Demand”. Does anyone know when the Dye Trader restocks? Nightly, Weekly, etc? Is there a lot of ‘Black Dye’ Trading ?. TikkaLeFem (talk) 23:31, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Builds [edit ]

Ca n’t save or load any of my Builds. makes it truly annoying to switch into different modes with one char. PLEASE HELP
James — — —

Hi James, sorry for your difficulty with loading ‘Builds’ – These suggestions may help.

Skills and Attribute Panel ( default keyboard shortcut ‘ K ‘ ) 1 ) TEMPLATE – By pressing the diskette magnetic disk icon in the crown left corner, templates can be saved and loaded for future practice. If a template has been saved with a primary and/or secondary profession you do not have access to on that specific character you will not be allowed to load it. — The ‘Floppy symbol

  • Load from Template.
  • Used to load templates you have previously saved.
  • Save to Template.
  • Used to save templates.
  • Manage Templates.
  • Used to rename and delete templates.
  • Template Code

besides used to view your current skills and attributes in a separate empanel that can be sent through old world chat.

  • Each template is saved as a separate *.txt files on the local computer, containing the coding string for the template. The default locations are:
   Windows XP: C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Templates
   Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 10: C:\Users\\Documents\Guild Wars\Templates
  • There are sub-folders for “Skills” and “Equipment”.

Dealing with the template code is easy done in-game. however, if you get a code that your character can not load or from some non-in-game method acting ( e.g. Guild ‘s web site ), you can create a * .txt charge ( such as with Notepad ) in the store directory and enter the code ( and lone the code, not a trailing EOL ) into the file and saving it.
3 ) SKILL TEMPLATE LIMIT – There is a limit to how many skill templates you can have in the ‘Root ‘ directory of Skills. This terminus ad quem is a utmost of 550 templates, however, this can be circumvented by using sub-folders. besides can greatly ease the management of large numbers of templates.

Do hope this was of some aid. TikkaLeFem ( spill the beans ) 23:26, 29 May 2021 ( UTC )

Why is there no party menu anymore ? [edit ]

I just start playing again in years. There is no party menu ? I do not know how to find it ? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Selve1122 ( lecture ) .

P key or look in the menu. Also if you look in the menu, find party, and, drag its icon somewhere on your screen you now have a party button on screen. By default the game relies on hotkeys for everything though. Durp da durp (talk) 18:24, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
edit conflict, sigh …
Do you mean the Party Formation panel?
Or the Party Search panel?
Changing the inventory of heroes is done in the Inventory.
Or something else? Steve1 (talk) 18:27, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

There is no information on the Chaos Infused Clay Pot [edit ]

I ‘ve searched throughout the wiki and still can not find any data any. some guidance would be much appreciated .

Xunlei chest [edit ]

In prophecies I can open the xunlei chest of drawers but I ca n’t store anything. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: ( spill the beans ) .

Try talking to a Xunlai Agent again (near most chests) did you possibly pay to open the materials storage and not the main storage? It’s 2 seperate things. Durp da durp (talk) 23:51, 18 April 2022 (UTC)
