If you’re looking for amazing player-made content for Guild Wars 2, Youtube is usually the first place you’d look, and with good reason. There are some incredible Guild Wars 2 content creators on the site, making a wide variety of different content. Below is a list of 10 fantastic Guild Wars 2 Youtubers you may enjoy.
Wooden Potatoes – https://www.youtube.com/user/WoodenPotatoes
Perhaps the best known, and most prolific Guild Wars 2 Youtuber is Wooden Potatoes. He makes several videos a week looking at patches, breaking down lore, and a variety of other Guild Wars related topics. He only does content for Guild Wars and his channel has been going for 8 years now. He’s best known these days for taking teaser trailers and breaking them down, turning a trailer with a runtime of less than two minutes into an hour-long in-depth look at every frame. His videos tend to run quite long compared to most YouTubers, with a 12-minute video being considered short. His videos are incredibly well researched and you’re sure to learn something new in every one of his videos.
Bog Otter – https://www.youtube.com/user/bogotter
Another face that has been around the Guild Wars 2 Youtuber community for a long time now is Bog Otter. He’s been making content on his channel for 6 years, most of it related to Guild Wars 2. He’s also a Twitch streamer in addition to his Youtube channel. His content varies from content playthroughs to previews of new weapons. There’s a new video on his channel every couple of weeks but if you want to catch him more often, check him out on Twitch where he’s playing something nearly every night.
Dulfy is quite simply one of the great heroes of Tyria. When new weapons and skins are released you go to Dulfy. If you’re stuck on a jumping puzzle or an achievement…Dulfy saves the day. Her guides are second to none. Her Youtube channel has also been going for 6 years now, though it started out with entirely different games. Yes, she has a few different MMORPGs that she does content for but she never feels like she’s stretched too thin. Even more important than her youtube channel though is her website. Here you can find all her video guides in addition to some fantastic timers, even more guides, and the latest Guild Wars 2 news. She’s also very active on the Guild Wars 2 Subreddit.
That_Shaman – https://www.youtube.com/user/thatshaman000/
While others focus on what is the game, That_Shaman focuses on what isn’t, or isn’t yet. He’s a dataminer and the community member in charge of the hype train, though he’s careful to never spoil any plot points or future content. Most of his work is done on Reddit rather than his youtube channel, but the channel is an important part of the work he does as it features videos of what new gear will look like, content that is never released, and more with a touch of his wonderful sense of humor. He also maintains an amazing historic map of Tyria on his website that should not be missed. Also, check out the interview with That Shaman I did last year.
The Krytan Herald – https://www.youtube.com/user/Fornax1066
A relative newcomer compared to others on this list, The Krytan Herald has only ben making content for the last three years. The videos themselves are incredibly high quality and range in topics from fashion to class guides. The host has an incredibly relaxing voice and makes me wonder if there are any Guild Wars 2 ASMR videos out there, if not, she could do it. New content is released on a weekly basis and you never know what it’s going to be on.
AuroraPeachy – https://www.youtube.com/user/AuroraPeachy
AuroraPeachy is another one of those Guild Wars 2 Youtubers who is actually better known for being on Twitch. Many of her Youtube videos are reaction style videos in which she reacts to recent trailers, content, and cute stuff. She has a close relationship with ArenaNet, giving her the opportunity to interview developers, tour the office, and be featured on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel. Her Youtube channel gets an update every couple of weeks or you can find her on Twitch every night, Monday to Friday.
If you’re looking for a PvP focus for Guild Wars 2 then Jebro is your man. He’s done official Guild Wars 2 shoutcasting and commentary for Guild Wars 2 PvP for 5 years now. In more recent times, he’s branched out to talk about changes to classes as well, and from time to time you can also find him covering other titles. Once again, he’s also incredibly prolific on Twitch. You can find him there Sunday to Friday playing Guild Wars 2 and other games that catch his eye.
MMOInks – https://www.youtube.com/user/MMOINKS
MMOInks covers Guild Wars 2 news, does playthroughs of recently released content, history lessons, and much more. He’s been making Guild Wars 2 content for 3 years and has just 7,600 subscribers. From time to time, you can also find him playing other games but Guild Wars 2 is where most of his content comes from. He doesn’t seem to have a regular update schedule, though you will see at least one video from him every week.
Talking Skritt – https://www.youtube.com/user/tinfoiltableflips
If you’re on the lookout for a Guild Wars 2 Podcast, then Talking Skritt is where you need to go. There’s three years worth of content on this youtube channel, mostly covering patches and content releases. All of the videos are over an hour long and there has even been one that went on for over three hours! As of writing this, there are 158 episodes of Talking Skritt with a new podcast released every week. If you’re looking for long-form content to listen to during your commute then Talking Skritt is the perfect channel for you.
Sugarwraith – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC84ijArcm__kqHM8Kbe8WMA
Do you love nature shows and other types of documentaries? Wish there was one for Tyria? There is! Sugarwraith makes well researched, beautifully filmed videos that are inspired by the likes of the great David Attenborough. The youngest channel on this list, it has only been going for a year now and in that time they’ve not even made 20 videos yet. But the quality more than makes up for it. Videos are only released every couple of months but they’re a lot of fun and usually come in at just under 10 minutes.
This is really just scratching the surface of the Guild Wars 2 Youtuber scene. I’ll be continuing this list in the future with even more amazing Guild Wars 2 Youtube content creators. I’m also going to be taking a look at Twitch and other Guild Wars 2 creators throughout 2018.Related: ArenaNet, Column, Community, Guild Wars 2, MMORPG, The Tyrian Chronicle, YouTube
