Amantis. First, there are two Powerful "Weapons" I didn't put in:
Stormcaller - don't know if it is ancient.
Forbidden/Lost Scrolls - ancient yes, but weapon? Might put up later, when I feel like it.
The Ancient Weapon you linked to I DID talk about. IT IS NOT AN ANCIENT WEAPON. It is just titled Ancient Weapon. That is all. Look at the bottom of the OP.
Tome of Rubicon is not a weapon and it is NOT what turned the Dwarves into stone - the Hammer of the Great Dwarf did (and I did forgot that, when/if I add Stormcaller and the Forbidden Scrolls, I'll add the Hammer of the Great Dwarf).

Yeah...It would help to lighten the tone of your posts Konig. Also, Amantis, it technically is an ancient weapon, developed by the civilization that built their city nearby the Lonely Vigil, the statue that falls over when you approach it. However, we do not know the exact effects of the weapon, as in, did it wipe out everyone in that area, as it would seem, or even further.
Due to that fact, it cannot be classified as one of the ancient weapons. It seems to me that the characteristics Konig specifies for them are to their effects and the range of these effects. Without knowing both of these characteristics of the Ancient Weapon itself, it cannot be classified amongst them.

Now then, since you edited or post after I posted:
Unsure or not as powerful:
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Balthazate_Crystal (deserves a mention)
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Atrocity_Library (must be powerful magic in there)
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Dzalana (no one knows what lies here)
Dzalana seems to be, imo, the homeland of the Harpies (they come from the east according to a NPC, can't recall who). Doubtful to be any weapons over there.
Powerful, more or less unknown beings:
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/The_Spider%27s_Heart (last 3 all describing Arachnia)
So, in overview. Sorry I was sounding rude before. Didn't intend to and haven't been in the best of moods. Usually I can hide any irregularities in my behavior and seem normal. Also, your new links are going waaaay off topic. Arachnia, lands, bloodstones, rocks. Not weapons.

I was just kinda mentioning related topics in the Old Mysterious objects/places of possible mass destruction direction, and insire thought. Didn't mean to derail the thread, sorry :) I saw that Arachnia thread, it was the first I had ever heard of her/him/it. It awed me and made me think how much more lore there could be. There are lots of places that we can't explore. Anyways as it turns out I had never heard of these twin swords either. Interesting stuff here.

You could just say that there are two types of Ancient Weapons - the Lesser Ancient Weapons that are borderline/unknown (The Luxon/Kurzick weapons, Stormcaller and the "Not so Ancient" Weapon). And the Greater ones which are presumed to have come from forces such as the gods and ancient dragons (for example the two Scepters and the Cauldron).
This thread is dealing with the Greater kind that have come from sources beyond the races of Tyria.
