Is this safe to use?

This software does not include any hacks or cheats, and makes use of official APIs built into the game and built by ArenaNet. Using this software is in no way different than using other GW2 informational websites, event trackers, and overlays.

Does this work while playing the game in Fullscreen?

No. Due to some technical reasons for how Fullscreen games take over the monitor, the overlay does not work when the game is running in fullscreen (at this time). The game must be running in Windowed or Windowed Fullscreen for it to properly overlay on top of the game. It's possible that this may be added in the future.

Can I run this on my Mac?

No. Mac OS is not supported at this time.

I'm having an issue with the overlay. How can I report it?

Issues can be reported at the Github Issues Page, or at the GW2 PAO Forums.

How do I ___?

For all questions on how to use the tool, check out the Wiki or Forums.

Can you add ___?

Maybe! For all feature requests and suggestions, head over to the Forums.
