How to preview item in GW2 with chat code

legendary_items_gw2_Maw_of_the_DeepAccording to the latest Guild Wars 2 Reddit posts, if you have the chat code of an item you can link it in the game chat box and then preview it. I believe that the main idea of this invention will be preview of the items in Trade Post, which is not possible at this moment.
If you are not sure how to do this follow the steps below:

  • If you have an item in your inventory type /wiki and Shift+Click the item and press enter. This action will open a new browser window linking to the GW2 wiki.
  • Copy the text code from the search box and paste it in the game chat box, then simply press enter. It will give you the chat link of the item. If you share the chat code with other players, they will be able to preview the item even if they don’t have it in their inventories.

There is also a script (thanks to turinpt) to turn item IDs into chat codes:


Each ID has 2 bytes so the number should be between 0 and 65535. Legendary items IDs are between 30684 and 30704. You can choose a random number as an item ID.
Don’t forget that preview mode doesn’t show the special particle effects, animations, etc.
