Blish HUD does not show on top of the game

Ensure that Guild Wars 2 has DirectX 11 enabled. When DirectX 11 is enabled, Blish HUD can overlay regardless of the selected resolution mode.


To enable DirectX 11, open your in-game graphics settings and uncheck Enable DX9 Rendering (Deprecated) and then restart Guild Wars 2.
