2.13: error: couldn't find the attach point: X

Recommended Posts

I've launched the game after a few years break, gone through the updates, and on the character screen I get a System log console with ~20 lines like this :

2.13: error: couldn't find the attach point: 85

2.13: error: couldn't find the attach point: 82

Full window here


I relauched the game with the -repair flag but this window is still present.  So far, I can log into my character and it didn't crash yet.


Is there a "deep repair" option available to check all the 50GB files integrity ?

First make sure you don't have ANY add-ons installed. These are known to crash the game after updates or cause other problems. Things like ArcDPS are very specific for a certain build of the game.


Another part of a cleanup can be to delete your Guild Wars 2 local settings:

C:\Users\%your user name%\AppData\Roaming\Guild Wars 2


If you want to keep your settings you can make a backup of this folder before deleting.

Last option is to just delete GW2.dat and let everything download again. 50+ GB, so this may take long.

Thanks Inculpatus,


I tried the flags -repair -verify -log to no avail. Then I noticed that in my install folder, every file had a "last modified" date of today, except for the d3d9_arcdps_buildtemplates.dll and d3d9.dll files which dated from 2019.


So I tried the -dx11 flag to bypass dx9 and that got rid of the nagging window ! Also, deleting the 2 dll above also worked without needing the -dx11.


TLDR : Got a bug? Delete old files not refreshed by an update, problem solved (YMMV).

Those two files you mention are part of arcDPS, the issue here is that you didn't keep it up to date

Arg, I completely forgot about that addon. After 3 years, the re-learning curve of GW2 is pretty steep. Thanks for the info.
