    Do gw2 need a wowhead?

    Personally I would love a website like wowhead for gw2.

    Easy to find info on crafting for example. Where to find the gear with just the style you're looking for.

    I hope we will get it.

    Do you want it?

    Yes and no tbh. Depends what it's used for.
    I like discovering stuff on my own as far as I can. Always feels a bit like cheating to jump straight to a guide. For things like unlocking the traits anyway...some of them are puzzles I believe. Would try not to use it for things like that.
    DEs will remove the scope for a lot of what sites like Wowhead were used for I think as well.
    For general info on armors etc...yh, don't see why not. But I'm also guessing that Anet will put much of this info in-game. They're just awesome like that

    One of the best curated wikis on the internet and the GW1 wiki is hands down the best gaming wiki I've ever seen.

    At the very least for a detailed listing of styles and sets, yeah.

    Never checked the gw1 wiki. But must say it looks great.
    Normally I think wiki pages looks really messy.

    I think yes as far as the average player who roams gaming sites is concerned. The fact that SWTOR received torhead.com right before it even released added a huge amount of credibility for the game. I would even go so far as to say a good chunk of people who tried SWTOR might have done so because they saw this website made for it and saw the game as more than just another Warhammer, Conan, Lotr, etc that would be subpar.


    If that makes any sense to you all haha. (I'm tired shut up :P )

    Having an item/ability database is always nice. It serves a different purpose than a Wiki for a game. Wiki pages provide fundamental information about game mechanics and lore, and a database helps to keep track of ability changes throughout patches en masse, and thousands of items details.
    Rincewind: Ah! We may, in fact, have reached the root of the problem. However it's a silly problem and so I am suddenly going to stop talking to you.

    I found the GW1 wiki easier to route than WoWhead. Personally I don't think a WoWhead like site is needed.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a WoWhead kind of website, but a website with some information could be nice, like where to find certain herbs, what DE is where. If the wiki can do that job, that's perfectly fine for me!

    Yes, I would greatly appreciate that and I know I would visit that site 24/7 like I did for wowhead with WoW
    Do want !

    If GW2 is popular enough I'm sure someone will make a clone of it for GW2.

    Yupp, there is already "Torhead.com" so why wouldn't they make it out of GW2 if GW2 becomes big?

    But I know for sure that I won't be using it, I want to explore everything on my own

    Honestly the wiki was more than enough for GW1. you could look up any item, ability, quest, area, or NPC just fine. while it did not have some of the tools wowhead has for compairing items that funtionality was not really needed in GW anyway. Only time will tell what is better for GW2. I suspect the wiki will be suficent agian as I just cant see what the Xhead format could really add to it. Most of the features wowhead does better have to do with static quests and a standard gear progression, 2 points vastly diminished in GW2's design.

    I like the whole 'Database' and then see weapons/armor with screenshots and comments as well as info on quests and professions etc. I guess I like the structure of wowhead more than the (GW1) wiki.

    Well, Wowhead made their sister site Torhead, so maybe they will also make a GW2head?
    Belief can become reality!
