    Guild Wars 2 resources

    This thread is supposed to provide people with a concise source of information about everything ranging from official sources to more specific topics like PvP builds or crafting guides. It is supposed to co-exist with Duke's Useful Hints and Tips thread. Opposed to Duke's thread, this will be more like a glossary of links to other sources on the internet with a structure consisting of a couple of main topics.

    Offical sources:
    • Areanet's Guild Wars 2 webpage. The developers will announce upcoming changes and other news concerning the game here. https://www.guildwars2.com/en/ Also home of the
    • Official forums. A good starting point if you are looking for information or support from both the community or the developers themselves. https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum
    • Leaderboards. Lists rankings of PvP, WvW, and PvE achievement points for both NA and EU region. https://leaderboards.guildwars2.com/en/na
    • Guild Wars 2 wiki. Still the #1 address for getting quick access to information about different aspects of the game. Can be called from within the game by typing "/wiki topic" into chat, with "topic" being a key word of your choice. Lists upcoming changes to the game on the frontpage. http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Main_Page


    Other forums/boards and GW2 web communities:


    Youtube resources:


    Podcasts:
    • Sitting On A Couch. An extremely well done series of podcasts, each with a focus on one of the professions covering both PvE and PvP aspects of the specific class. Feature knowledgeable guests for topic specific discussions. http://sittingonacouch.com/
    • Tales of Tyria. Concluded, but has been said to be an entertaining look at a range of aspects of the game. http://www.talesoftyria.com/

    This is an excellent idea Squirrel - thanks. I think both this and Duke's thread are important resources - as a fresh 80 I'm eager to discover all the game's secrets and a thread like this is one of the best starting points. The "inside information" in Duke's post is as much a destination as the other sites linked to here so maybe over time, the topics in Duke's thread might get indexed here with all the resources - assuming it's possible to link to a specific post within a thread.

    Maybe there's even an argument for making the two threads into one mega-thread with the first posts being the contents/index list like here and the following posts containing Duke's topics and other contributions and comments. A sort of one-stop destination for everything. Or should that be ***EVERYTHING***!!??

    On that note, another useful event timers related resource (oriented to Gunnar's Hold since we live here) would be...

    Thanks Duke. I am a bit undecided at the moment about the whole link afair. Maybe keep those links that explain a specific trick? In any case we should try to avoid redundancy.

    This site shows all events in the world on a map, not just the big ones: http://gw2hero.com/
    This one is handy to check CoF/CoE status for guesting: http://www.gw2bear.com/

    found this new event timers website yesterday from gw2 reddit, direct link for gunnars hold map: http://divinitysreach.com/map/en/2014/
    It works with the original event api and updates every 15 seconds, plus has some more features.

    Before I was using: http://gw2.thelazy.net/events.html

    http://us.gw2stuff.com/events/gunnars-hold was nice because you can track events, but it caches the api so the updates are slower.

    The DR one is nice, but I do like to be able to see the timers too so I know what's up next. I've been mostly using GW2stuff; it's small delays aren't so large that one could miss an event, especially now that most of the HP bars have been buffed.

    I've seen this one too but was reluctant to add it due to the "beta" tag. Will add it now.

    • Gunnar's Hold Community Node Map. An editable map for locating resource nodes, particularly useful for finding Orichalcum and Ancient Wood nodes. http://www.ghnodes.com doesn't work anymore

    Thanks Tweetiti, I have removed the entry from the list. The domain seems to have expired. I would suggest using gw2nodes.com instead.

    Oh and I hate formatting bullet points in forum posts.
