Who says charr can’t be fancy and musically inclined? Pejntboks’s lovely art of an equally lovely charr is a great reminder to follow your dreams.


Sefokusu shared this dynamic digital depiction of one of the most terrifying things you can see at ground level—a pack of armed asura with explosive devices. Get to higher ground!


To celebrate years of memories, composer Corvus submitted this beautiful tribute titled “The Breath of Tyria” for the tenth anniversary of the Guild Wars® universe. Thank you for joining us on the journey!

Could anyone find these quaggan minis sculpted by Chris (Fizzmatix) anything less than absolutely charming? (Other than the krait, but nobody asked for their opinion.)

The German community site is celebrating the anniversary of its long-running podcast, which began in 2011 with 50 episodes. The podcast relaunched in 2013 and will reach 100 episodes as of May 21. Visit the archives to browse through all 150 episodes (German language only). is celebrating an anniversary as well—the site’s very first. The community started out as a joint TeamSpeak initiative after the first German Foostival in 2014, and they believe that everything is better when you play with other people. Right on! Honeyball and Sputti have created a testimonial video.
