5 Amazing Tools for Commanders and Players

This is small list of my top five tools to use in WvW. Check them out!


WvW Timer Overlay

This is an amazing tool because it lets you see what the timers are for any camp or objective. By default, it displays the overlay when you hold a hotkey, but you can set it to always display if you want. It will not interfere with where you click while in game. You must follow the instructions here to set it up. This is huge boon to every commander. To switch borderlands overlay, alt tab click the overlay in your windows tray and right click the overlay to change it.

All parts to this are optional and can be toggled off.

Positional Audio

If you ever wanted to hear where your teammates are on the map, then try out this tool that is available for teamspeak and mumble. Basically, once you get it setup you can see which direction your friends are if they have it enabled. It is sort of buggy though, but you can get the general sense of direction. You can set it up so that you don’t have to have it enabled for everyone, and you can set it to only broadcast to show where you are if you do not want to hear where others are.

For Mumble: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Positional-Audio

 GW2 Battle Stats

This lets you display camp timers and more for keyboards that have readouts like the G19. Really cool!



Map Position Tool

If you are a large guild and you want to keep track of all your scouts or just keep track of everyone, then have everyone install this tool and load up the map on a second monitor to see where everyone is. Really neat!

Must download client to work.


Map Trackers

If you don’t want to use an overlay, then put one of these map trackers on your second monitor and enjoy. Functional on tablets too. Useful for finding out which guild has claimed a keep.
