This article serves as an index for the guides covering where to find the various vista locations in the MMORPG Guild Wars 2. Each guide covers a specific region of the game world, listing all the vistas that can be found within.
About the Vistas
There are currently 266 vistas to be found altogether, spread out through the world of Guild Wars 2, as of the game’s initial release. More are likely to be added if/when expansions are released. Like in the first game, these points act as places for players to discover. Finding them nets you some experience along with often lovely slow pans over the nearby area, giving you viewpoints you would often not be able to achieve on your own. Besides the amusement factor, finding vistas can be helpful in getting an overview of the area, earning experience, and progressing towards unlocking the special reward for completing each area to 100%.
Unlike in the previous game, however, most of these locations are significantly more challenging to reach. They often introduce many platformer game aspects, require extensive searching for secret or non-straightforward entrances, or involve other out-of-the-ordinary tasks. Searching for vistas and other map locations is essentially a meta game of its own. Waypoints, points of interest, activities, and other map details will be covered separately.
Update (2019): Work on more Guild Wars 2 guides was put on hold some time ago. This index still serves to cover the early stages of the game along with major cities and is considered complete now in covering these portions.
