It's an expansion (just like the original Guild Wars had three expansions), so yes, you'll have to pay for it, and you'll have to own GW2 to play it. They haven't decided on pricing yet, but, since the base game is dirt-cheap compared to most other games these days, I can't imagine it'll be too dear. From the Heart of Thorns FAQ: Q: Is the expansion ...

I haven't done comprehensive testing, but the rule of thumb seems to be if the movement skill temporarily makes you unaffected by gravity1, movement speed boosts will increase the distance a skill moves you. This is effectively all the skills that are a Leap finisher plus Rocket Boots (maybe some others)? What seems to happen is that for the ...

It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure it's the T2 Silvari racial style. They are also random loot drops.

PackFile.cpp contains code to deal with the packaged files in the .dat. The crash is due to an assertion in the code that a "signature" value in the header of one of the files matches the expected value (PACKFILE_SIGNATURE). This generally suggests that your .dat is corrupted. You can try to launch the game with -repair, but as the code tries to repair ...

Swiftness has no effect. Taken from the GW2 Wiki: Swiftness is a boon that provides an increase to movement speed. Other effects that provide a bonus to movement speed (e.g. certain traits and signets) do not stack with swiftness; only the highest increase in movement speed will be applied. This means that swiftness doesn't quicken the cast time or the ...

Yes, there is a mod that makes your cursor size bigger. It is called Yolo Mouse. Here is a link to it: http://pandateemo.github.io/YoloMouse/

Personally, I don't find the XP Boosters to be all that useful, because they're from kills only. What I would do is obtain some Boost Enchantment Powder. These will turn those boosters into an Enchanted Reward Boost which will let you select from a menu of boosts. Of course, you can't do this right off the bat because 10 powders costs 1 gold.

No. A 16:9 resolution will display the same amount of content as another 16:9 resolution. The difference between the resolutions will be the detail of what you see, not how much you see.

This is one of the newer crafting profession backpacks. With the pots and pans, looks like it's one for chefs. Here's a link to a match: Ambrosial Chef's Backpack

Nope, afraid not. You need to stay in the area (map) to get credit for any events. Events remember who participated, even a little (e.g. a single hit - one that does damage, that is - on an event-related NPC or target, or handing a single item to the collector NPC for collection events) and will reward you with at least bronze-level participation as long as ...

There are a number of low level food items available, from level 0, according to the wiki page about food. However most food buff items start becoming more plentiful and powerful as the level of the item increases. Although all food items will provide a small bonus to experience as well. Filtering food items by level on GW2DB also produces a list of ...

Amos is right on. I find the biggest benefit from them is in converting them to something else, especially when you already have an 80. You can turn them (and most boosters) into a generic booster that can be then converted into something you might find more useful (crafting is usually my preference) by buying dust from one of the vendors that is located ...

The very bright green names such as "Illusionary Warden", are player 'pets'. Illusionary Warden is a mesmer's phantasm, while some of the other names may be ranger pets, and some of the names in that color appear to be player names but are actually mesmer clones. The 'middle' green names are player characters. And the pale green words such as "Champion of ...

Dark green is title Bright green is names of computer controlled characters (summons, pets, etc.) Green-blue'ish one is player names.

The "point" is to get more stats, which is the point of using Ascended equipment as opposed to Exotic equipment in the first place. Ascended equipment is useful in more places than just Fractals. Agony Resistance is only useful in Fractals. Putting Agony Resistance on Ascended equipment and then fighting in World vs. World would be a complete waste of an ...

It's actually worth reading the fine print on those (from the wiki, emphasis added): Double click to gain a buff that gives an additional 50% experience from kills for one hour. GW2 doesn't really have "quests" as such, and while there are many, many things that will give you experience (from ressing people to crafting to completing renown hearts to ...
