A Build Pack is a collection of build template codes. They include all builds on PvXwiki that are in the Real Vetting system sorted by gametype. This page lists download links for the build packs and provides guidance in maintaining them.

Downloading the Packs

All available Build Packs can be downloaded here. They are also linked on the main page.

The packs were last updated on 18 September 2021.

Using the Packs

Unzip the downloaded file and place the buildpack folder into your Skills subfolder for Guild Wars. By default, the filepath is:

  • C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Templates\Skills for Windows XP.
  • C:\Users\<Your username>\Documents\Guild Wars\Templates\Skills for Windows Vista/7/8/10.

Once there, all builds in it will be available from the Load Template menu in Guild Wars.

How you can help

All builds should follow regular formatting to ensure the correct build information is collected and, in particular, single build pages should have one main skill bar. Any alternate full skill bars (major variants) should be enclosed with {{Variantbar}} so the script can save them with an appropriate name. If you notice a build page that would not or does not get fully collected by the script, please fix the page or note the issue on the build's talk page.

Good examples of the template in use are:

Build packs are collected by a Python script which is available at a GitHub repository for reference and community input.

Any ideas for improvement can be submitted for discussion on the talk page.

Limitations

  • Builds with no primary profession will not be loadable in Guild Wars. They are still saved to the packs for use with build editor software that can read them.
  • Build pack files are updated monthly (usually). Builds may be edited, created or deleted on the wiki between build pack updates.
