Guild Wars client downloading content too slow?

    Since I posted a link to a fully updated Gw.dat file a few weeks ago, I've been noticing more and more posts of people complaining about download speeds from with in the Guild Wars client, and the response has been people searching for the web link to the dat file I uploaded.


    So to make it easier to find, I figured I'd make a dedicated post for it, and hopefully a mod can make it a sticky or something until Arenanet does something similar (hopefully, nothing's been actually promised).

    My bandwidth allows for a little over 700 downloads a month before I get charged, so unless there's a HUGE resurgence of Guild Wars 1 players that suddenly makes this a terrible financial burden this file will remain up.


    If it gets out of date, someone let me know and I'll upload a newer copy.

  • Isn't each dat storing information like character name? (Aludeni)

  • I wasn't sure on that. Didn't want a dat file to have obtained information that could be vital. Thanks smoke.
    Cause I have used a dat file that displayed husband's character name...
