    The log you posted only shows that the launcher was started. GW2 only periodically writes to the log and on exit, so you need to let it download for at least a few minutes, then exit. If you did do this and it still looks like that, then GW2 is failing to even create a connection, which was what the QoS/IPv6 problem looked like.

    If you haven't tried it yet, try launching with:
    -image -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 -patchconnections 1
    (only use this while stuck)

    what is this youre doing? i dont understand one bit of it.. how do i launch it witht hat code?

  • Hi guys... I was having the same issue and I just tried the -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 and so far its working its picked back up where it left off and is downloading normally...will update when and if it completes. {:

    Right click your GW2 shortcut and select properties. You add the options to the end of the target, making it look something like this:

    "C:\Example\Gw2-64.exe" -image -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 -patchconnections 1

    Also, most people can just use the "-assetsrv 54.84.216.160" part of it.

    so i cant leave it on cuse it makes my internet crash on the pc and make me reset my router.

    This is generally caused by opening too many connections (tracked by the NAT), causing the router to run out of memory and crash/reboot. Normally GW2 would open 10 connections and reuse them, but it's probably abandoning the connection and opening a new one instead when it fails a download. It shouldn't be enough to crash a newer router (>10k connections), whereas it's easy to crash older ones (~100 connections).

  • @Healix.5819 thanks a bunch. both problems solved!

    Deleted the GW2 cache and disabled QoS before trying this and IT WORKED! The -assetsrv argument alone did not work in my case, so the rest seems to be important.

    Remember to switch back to the regular launcher after getting past the file you are stuck on - for speed.

    Just use the principal asset server, not touch to the QoS
    Use the command line (in shortcut) : -assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com
    After update, remove the command line.

  • tried literally all the things suggested in this thread and nothing worked, game gets to 52% give or take then starts acting oddly with the dowloader flickering from 8meg a second to 0kb then upto 4 and back down again over and over...

  • Just adding in case someone comes a long. The DNS thing was what worked for me. Went from a rocky download (start at 15MB/s, down to 500KB/s, back up to 10MB/s and so on) to having a constant 20MB/s at least and more.
    Thanks for the help!

    I am also getting stuck on the file that's supposedly 42822986 (bytes?) large, same as one of the above posters.

    If it's a server problem, you should simply be able to launch the game with either:
    -assetsrv 54.84.216.160
    -assetsrv 52.202.5.88
    (you can exit and relaunch after it downloads a few files, since using this will be slower)

    If that's still stuck, delete Local.dat (under %appdata%/Guild Wars 2/ and/or Documents/Guild Wars 2/) and all gw2cache folders (under %temp%), then use the above option again. If that's still stuck, something is interfering with your connection (a software or ISP problem).

    (see this post if you want to test this file in your browser - you have the same problem)

    looks like it works with -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 for me so big thumbs up for that

  • Just a small thing that confused me. When you switch to NA server with -assetsrv the download is much slower (or at least was for me), so give it a few minutes (3-5) before you go back into panic mode just like me :sunglasses:

  • 54.84.216.160 is the only working patch server atm for me.

  • -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 works for me, it is however rather slow but I guess this seems to be a fix for me. its currently downloading at 3mb/s rather than the usual 12mb/s but eventually it will get the job done. Healix whoever you are, you're a legend thanks.

    thanx mate :) this one did the job….nothing mentioned above i tried helped

  • Thank you Healix.

    Being trying to update all day after a new build of my system and it just was going nowhere.

    it is now at least downloading but it is very slow. Still goes from 3MB to 0 and then starts again but at least the files remaining figure is actually moving downwards now.

    Oh well only 237503 to go

  • After the bottleneck cleared I tried taking back out the parameters out of the shortcut and now I am back downloading at 6-8MB sec.

    Delete Local.dat (found under %appdata%/Guild Wars 2/ and optionally under Documents/Guild Wars 2/) and all gw2cache folders under the %temp% folder, then launch with:

    -log -image -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 -patchconnections 1

    If it's still stuck, let it sit for 10+ minutes (while stuck), then exit and check the log. If it's not, let it download a few files, then exit and patch normally; repeat if necessary.

    Spent days literally looking up forum responses on how to fix this problem. Support team tried to help me before just telling me to contact my ISP becuase it's definitely their problem. THIS bloody advice is all I needed. I'll admit it's a bit tedious swapping back to delete appdata files and putting argument lines back in to the launch target, but hey this worked for me where all else failed. Thanks dude!

    This fixed it for me too, Thanks so much

  • Hello guys, just another person with installation issues here. It first got stuck on 53% and I tried downloading it over again like 4-5 times but nothing. After this thread I tried the QoS thing wich got me past 53% but instead got stuck on 90% wich is driving me nuts. I'm in contact with the support team atm but still nothing.

    You guys were talking about -assetsrv 54.84.216.160 something? Can anyone give me a full descripstion on this? What do I change/download/fix?
