couple of things that need fixing

This applies to admin only I'm afraid. The right PvE featured builds need aligning, and the sort by profession links need aligning vertically =p (I would but I have no clue what's wrong with em.) PheNaxKian Sysop 10:24, 12 September 2008 (EDT)

Check table cell widths. If the left half of the featured builds on the bottom is wider than the left half on the top, it would of course shove over the right half on the bottom farther than on the top. As for the sort by profession links... Try putting the actual professions into two columns, and the team link centered underneath. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 11:34, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
The problem is that particular section is made up of three divs in a table. That third section contains a table inside of the div that refuses to conflict with the image of the scroll. If you change the width="100%" at the beginning of that table to something like width="75%" that will fix it I think. Check and see. Also, you might want to check the valigns on the two columns in that table. One is "center" and the other is "top"; that probably isn't right. - Panic sig5 11:56, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
I think I've "fixed" them both. They may be slightly off (both trial and professions), but they're not massively noticeable. PheNaxKian Sysop 12:49, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
[1] Exactly what I suspected was the problem. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 11:34, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Lack of a working search Add-on

When I drop down the search box in my browser toolbar and click "Add Pvxwiki (English)" I get an error message (example: "Firefox could not download the search plugin from:" - I tried it in IE, too, and got a similar error). Every other site I know of, including guildwiki, has this feature working. This isn't something a user could add, so I'm wondering if there's any administrative interest in adding it. --War Pig5 22:30, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

If you try looking at the link it provides, you'll likely find nothing there. There's better ways of searching PvX, which we're working on. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 00:20, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
I agree with Armond, the provided link should also have a wiki formatting code regarding that thing, I suggest looking for the code and then "Ctrl & F5" to refresh your cache. -- WoB User Wings of Blood sig icon 20:41, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


Hi there, I don't know where to add this but we need paragon builds. If I make any good ones other than Imbagon, I will add them on PvX but I am looking for a para running build atm and my alliance nor PvX has one. :( If someone could make a makeshift one for now, that would be great. :D--Sam6555 10:47, 3 October 2008 (EDT) yw. - Panic sig5 10:54, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Thing is, I was mainly looking for a running build, and i've looked all though those and none really made me go ''Wow, i'll try that one out'' :P I'll just carry on with my special ibagon build for now, till someone posts a para running build. :D Thanks anyway mate --Sam6555 13:30, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Paras aren't that great at running things - leave that to shadow form assassins. For the rest of PvE, why would you run anything other than an imbagon? :p -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 18:55, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
i believe his point is that guild wars is a game. you're supposed to have fun, so why not try something new? in this case, a running para. it simply hasn't been tried, save for my build, due to pvx elitists. Steve (LVPoW) I'm stalking you... 19:01, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Well, fine, try it in-game if you want, but PvX is for documenting the best builds. We don't store paragon farmers simply because we don't have any of them; we don't store them because they're bad. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 19:04, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
define bad please. Steve (LVPoW) I'm stalking you... 19:05, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
It's a subjective term. :/ But the closest you'll get is "works worse than an alternative with a similar goal". -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 19:16, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
I ask for something for a class thats really good, but no-one has and I get flamed for asking? There must be some paragon lovers out there, I know of 2 just in my alliance. They deserve to be noticed, even though they get nerfed at times, what if I wanna run as something different to a warr sometimes? There snothing. :( --Sam6555 19:19, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
(EC) how can there be an alternative if there is none to pick from? Steve (LVPoW) I'm stalking you... 19:21, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Hi. PvX is an independent website. We're not the sole arbiter of Guild Wars builds, we just host good ones. In fact, we have no control over the builds people use at all. You want an alternative? You can make one. It's easy. Just open up Guild Wars and stick skills together until you find something that works. I promise we won't stop you.
@Sam: Paragons aren't particularly good at running since so much of their stuff is focused on party support. Maybe something with Hasty Refrain and a couple of short-lived shouts, I don't know. --71.229 19:33, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Where are these flames, Sam? People disagreeing with you doesn't mean they're flaming.
Also, people who ignore the most overpowered class in the game make me lol. Your alliance only has two para-lovers? Either your alliance is really small, or... -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 19:41, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Ahh well thanks guys, just have to make my own....who knows if people like it, it may appear on here. And our alliance grows day by day, for all I know the whole alliance might be para-lovers, it's just at the times I asked for like how paras runed thier armors, they are the only 2 to reply and actually talk with me. :P Even though they are already good friends both called Sarah. XD --Sam6555 22:00, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Well seeing how I have EVERY Paragon skill, I'll make one for you =]. -- WoB User Wings of Blood sig icon 20:39, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

So how bout them scroll over descrips...

Ive asked many a time and have been told many a time that some dude was working on making a database for PvX... well WTF is he almost done? People have offered to help and were told that they couldn't. Also these discrips are much older than Aug 7 update... I think they go back to before June. I would also like to add that the following site has up to date scroll over descriptions and that we dont have to use gwshack... 17:25, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

All descriptions are controlled by GWShack, and they update descriptions slower than continental drift. Hhhippo is working on our own skills database, but until then, you'll have to live with it and keep up-to-date on skills. --GoD Hammer and Sickle Guild of Deals 17:27, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
  • GCard. And he's got various things going on RL still. It's done when it's done, leave it at that. As for people offering to help, unless they have a lot of scripting experience, I'm sure the help is none existent. PheNaxKian Sysop 17:29, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
fair enough... but again i draw your attention here --> their skills are up-to-date and have been for a long time. Despite being a low-key GW site, they stay up-to-date with the game. Is it possible to switch over to them? 17:37, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
It's not that simple --FrostyMini england 17:39, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
well its probably easier than making an entire new database, no? Sorry about complaining, but the hover over descriptions really bother me and id like to help out in fixing this shit up.17:46, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
As far as I'm aware, gamependium don't make their code available (they might, but nothings visible on the site), plus it would mean re coding PvXcode, to work with the new skill code. I;ve actually looked at the GWBBshack site, they've released an update (it's more recent than our version anyway, not sure if it's up to date), i'll leave hippo a message and see if he can get it updated when he gets a chance.

blood sacrifice

while i was browsing through the wiki, i observed that skills like "blood is power" which need you to sacrifice an amount of health don't show that in the skill description, like in die gw-wikia, where there is a drop of blood with the amount in the same column like cast-time and energy-cost 16:05, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

Originally, the sacrifice costs were included in the descriptions of the skills, but Guild Wars (and thus the wikis) removed those from the descriptions and added an icon for it. PvXwiki is pretty behind on skill descriptions, and probably haven't implemented the sac costs, yet. ــмıкεнaшк 16:38, 20 October 2008 (EDT)
It's actually us. Apparently it's our code. Just have to wait for GCard or Hippo to get round to it, remember they have other things that take priority (search engine for Hippo, and GCards RL (otherwise I think he's working on the skill database)). ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 16:47, 20 October 2008 (EDT)

error 500 - internal error

The problem is, it is getting too often now. Every 5 pages I click I get one, when it would be 1 per 50 clicked at the most. My theory is the server is crashing soon. This happened the last time just before the hacker attack fiasco.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 11:59, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
I've been getting it too -- a little more than is bearable at times. For a second, I thought it was my computer and I was a little freaked out, but it IS just this site. I'm not sure what it is, but the idea that it's a result from the massive hack fest not too long ago isn't too farfetched in my eyes. KaHasuken 18:25, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Help. :)

Ok so, I know most about userpages like userboxes and linking stuff, and making builds. But, still need to know another thing. How do I make stuff on my userpage where I can put profiles of all my 10 chars? :> I would like to know this to make my PvX page even better, all help appreciated here. :D --Sam6555 22:01, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Make a page for each character. Also, you sig needs to link to either your user page or your talk page. – talkInfidel sigcontribs 20:29, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Skill database

How's it coming up? ɟoʇuɐʌʎʞɔıɹPanic srsbsns 14:10, 28 November 2008 (EST)

last I heard (which was a while ago) it's 80% done, only Hippo or GCard could tell you exactly (probably only GCard because he was the one working on it) ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 14:21, 28 November 2008 (EST)
I wonder why it is so slow to update. Just write a script to rip guildwiki's template source(I'v done that, it took images also, it's not hard) and another to put it slighly modified to here? Vazde 15:35, 28 November 2008 (EST)
by database he doesn't mean skill descriptions, he means our own database, so we don't relay on GWShack (as we do now), and the community (or trusted members of) would keep it up to date. As for the GWW/Gwiki rip, we've considered it, but it'd strain resources doing that, having to call information from another website/page iirc. ~ PheNaxKian Sysop 16:04, 28 November 2008 (EST)
And ripping them from GWiki/GWWiki would take up a LOT of their bandwidth, and rely on them to be active to get them. And its just ya know, not right? ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   20:05, 28 November 2008 (EST)

Where did the builds go?

Hi i have noticed that both Warrior Dragon Slash Builds have vanished from the site. As both builds were very viable i wonder where they have gone. I cannot find the builds in the archived section. Especially the DS/Save Yourself spammer saved me countless times in Hard Mode and should be restored to the site. Irkm Desmet 03:43, 1 December 2008 (EST)

Forget it i was blind and found the builds. But i think i should take the build discussion up here. The two builds were archived because a new build tried to unify the two. Which is not a good idea in my opinion. Nearly the only thing the two builds have in common is DS. Unifying them looses us two good build for one that is so undefined that you could just say 'take DS and some other skills'. What irks me is that this has happened before and the builds were restored afterwards. Irkm Desmet 03:46, 1 December 2008 (EST)
