Siege Golems Are Better, Faster, and Stronger in World vs. World between July 17 and 24

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on 16th July, 2015


Join us in World vs. World this Friday, 17 July starting at 6:00 p.m. UTC (11:00 a.m. Pacific Time) for Golem Rush, our newest special event. During this weeklong event, golems in World vs. World will be faster and stronger than ever. Will you join your new golem overlords, or will you act as a last bastion of humanoid kind and work to thwart their uprising? The choice is yours!

During Golem Rush, the following conditions will be in effect:

  • Siege golems will not cost supply to construct (blueprints will not be free).
  • Siege golems will move at 100% increased movement speed.
  • Siege golems will deal 100% additional damage against players and other siege golems.
  • Each kill on an enemy player will grant your team one point toward your realm’s total score.

To celebrate this event, we are enabling the Mist War Summons effect, which will give players +15% WXP, +50% magic find in WvW, and +15% experience on kills in WvW.

Golem Rush will be deactivated at 6:00 p.m. UTC (11:00 a.m. Pacific Time) on 24 July 2015.
