The loading screen is displayed while Guild Wars loads the location you are about to enter; this may include locations needed for cutscenes.

All towns, outposts and explorables in a greater region typically have the same loading screen. They also share the smaller image that is found on the character selection screen behind the heads of your characters, and they have the same type of signpost at any portal leading into them. These regions match up somewhat with the areas where certain keys and their corresponding chests appear, the Quest Log sections, and the areas where certain bounties can be had.

The loading screens for missions are generally unique to the mission, being in-game views of a specific spot within the mission. The missions that use the loading screen of their region should be noted below.

The loading screens for Guild Halls correspond to their environments from the respective campaigns (with some exceptions).

The list of arenas and PvP maps is incomplete; please help.
