Printing the Wallpapers allowed ?

I'm wondering if I am allowed to print out the wallpapers (or other art) from the website for personal use (just gonna put it on my wall). I rly love the art (and let's not forget the music too) in this game I don't wanne break any laws.

    I'm interested in using Guild Wars or Guild Wars 2 art on a website, application, in a project, or on a Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2 or ArenaNet fansite. What is your policy regarding copyrights and trademarks? May I use ArenaNet, Guild Wars 2 and/or Guild Wars content, such as images, text, sounds, or video?

    It happens. Copyright law can be difficult to enforce but when a company decides to make an example out of someone, it can end up costing that person his or her life savings...and then some! Nothing wrong in being careful, or educating oneself when unsure about something. In fact, its commendable.

    That is correct. The emphasis is a personal and non-profit (not selling, trading, etc.) use. What you described fits the intentions perfectly. I hope you enjoy the art!
