Welcome to the Guild Wars 2 Extended Online Manual, the follow-up manual from the Guild Wars 2 Online Manual which will take you beyond. These manuals have been removed from the game. This is an online manual for an overview of what to expect and look forward in the game. The world of Guild Wars 2 is about the people you meet, your moment-to-moment experiences, and the things you choose to do along the way. Here's an.
If you don't have the simple party UI option enabled, there is a small heart icon next to each party member's portrait if they are doing the same heart as you. They are unlocked using hero points. You will see this icon next to the health globe. Pressing the I key brings up your backpack with an initial capacity of Previously, you had to run to the bank to grab supplies every time you want to craft. Home instance:
Each point of downed penalty you accrue will reduce the length of your starting downed bar by one quarter. This starts with the first time you are downed and each point goes away after one minute. This means that in order to have literally no chance to rally, you would need to be downed four times within a minute.
Once you are dead, you can get back into the world by reviving at a nearby Waypoint. Other players can still revive you back to life at this point. You will take armor damage each time you die. If you fall from a high place, you don't go into the downed state and die immediately. Something to keep in mind if you are doing jumping puzzles. When you actually die, a piece of your armor gets damaged. Damaged armor doesn't have any negative effects but it serves as a warning.
Once you die enough times so that all of your armor is damaged, an armor piece will break the next time you die. Once an armor is broken, it cannot be worn the armor is no longer on your character and provide no beneficial effects. You will see this icon next to the health globe.
The NPC you are looking for has this broken shield icon. Dungeons usually have this NPC near the entrance so you don't need to travel out of the dungeon to repair. Check out this Boons and Conditions page to see a list of all the boons and conditions available in game.
This will give party members a message that will allow them to press T to acquire your target. Only one target can be marked at a time and every marked target have a red circle above their heads.
This is incredibly useful in dungeon pulls with multiple mobs or in PvP against Mesmers. You add someone to the friend list, chat with them, or join a guild even if they are not in the same world as you. However, you won't be able to play together with them unless you transfer to their world or use the guesting feature. Once you add someone to the contacts press ' Y' button , they will show up on the list no matter which character they are playing i.
Sometimes, this can be a bit weird getting tells from character names you never heard of until you realized who it is. You can hover your mouse cursor over their name and a tooltip should pop up to display their account name. The contacts window has four tabs, the first tab is essentially the friend list. The third tab has a list of your followers i. You can change your online status to Online, Away or Invisible shows up as offline on other player's friend list.
You can do this at the login screen or on the contacts window once you are in game. To create a guild, you just need 1 silver and then you can press the ' G' button and click on Create Guild greyed out if you are already in a guild.
You can be invited to multiple guilds on your account but each character can only represent one guild at a time and earn influence for them. When you first receive a guild invitation, you have the option to either represent or leave the guild. If you choose to represent that guild, you are then given the option to Stand Down.
Whenever you do activities while representing a guild, you will earn influence. More influence can be earned if guild members gather together to do them. Influence allow your guild to purchase upgrades such as guild banks or have a guild emblem imprinted on banners and armors. For a list of all the upgrades influence can purchase, please consult this Guilds page. One of the really nice features of GW2 is that all the gathering nodes are individualized.
What this means is that other players gathering from the same node won't deplete your node and vice versa. Even if you don't plan on crafting at all, the raw material can be sold on the Trading Post for a nice sum of money and you get XP for gathering stuff not to mention to occasional gems to upgrade your gear and complete the daily achievements.
When you first start a character, you should always go to the nearest merchant and purchase the gathering tools as soon as you have the coins. The merchant you want to look for are these ones marked on the map.
They will sell you gathering tools for coins, just purchase the lowest level ones for now, you won't see the higher level ones until the next leveling zone. There are three type of tools: Just buy all three, as you can equip all three at the same time. Each tool has a certain amount of use associated with them, something to watch out for. If you are afraid that all of the stuff you gathered will clutter your inventory, there is a button called Deposit all Collectibles.
Using it will deposit all the stuff your gathered into your bank and free up your inventory. You can have a maximum of two crafting disciplines at any one time but you don't lose progress on your current crafting disciplines when you switch to a new one.
All it takes is a bit of coin to switch back to an old crafting discipline amount depends on how progressed you are in that discipline. Consult the Crafting page to see a list of crafting disciplines and what they can make.
Previously, you had to run to the bank to grab supplies every time you want to craft. Thankfully, ArenaNet introduced the ability to access the bank while crafting. You can now access your bank tab and your collectibles tab where all the stuff you gathered were sent to when you clicked on the Deposit all Collectible button whenever you are at a crafting station.
Don't sell off the armor you can't use, they are worth very little to NPC merchants; you can get a much bigger return by salvage them into raw materials for crafting.
Even if you don't play on using the raw mats, you can still make a decent sum of coins by selling them on the Trading Post. Bag spaces are a premium in GW2 and the bags you get in the beginning are 4 slots. It is therefore a great idea to create yourself some 8 slot bags. Tailoring , Armorsmith , and Leatherwork can all make bags immediately when you pick up the respective crafting disciplines.
Difference between sPvP and WvW. In both types of PvP, all players are automatically set to L You are given all the skills and all the PvP gear you possibly need so that everyone starts out in even grounds.
It is a pure skill based PvP without any gear gap or grind.

Otherwise, they will simply receive karma for helping complete the step.
Beginning at level 30 with the Ascalonian Catacombs , dungeons are instanced areas designed for parties of 5. The first time you complete a dungeon you will play in story mode, which is a mode intended for casual players and tells the story of Destiny's Edge. If you're looking for a challenge, once you've beaten story mode you can play a dungeon in explorable mode, which requires stronger team play to complete. Explorable mode has different lore with more branches and a few random events, ensuring you get a somewhat varied experience every time you play the dungeon.
When you reach the appropriate level, you will receive an in-game mail directing you to the dungeon. Fractals of the Mists: Fractals are traditionally level 80 content, though it will "upscale" your character to 80 upon entering.

Rewards include ascended armor and weapon pieces as well as progress towards Legendary Armor.
