The Fourth Beta Preview Event Arrives Next Week

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on November 23, 2021

From November 30 to December 4, log in and play the fourth Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons™ beta preview event! All nine of the new elite specializations will be playable, along with the brand new siege turtle mount. Now you have turtle power.

How to Play

If you’re new to Guild Wars 2, sign up for a free account here!

To join the fun, log in and create a beta event character by clicking one of the empty character slots marked “Beta” on your character select screen. You’ll be able to choose any of the nine Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons elite specializations as the character’s profession. Your character will begin in the city of Lion’s Arch at level 80, with their elite specialization, build, and gear equipped.

From there, you can explore the open world or try a game mode dedicated to group play. You’ll find options to join the World vs. World and structured Player vs. Player in the bar located at the top left corner of your UI. To tackle the Fractals of the Mists instanced group content, visit Fort Marriner in Lion’s Arch and enter the portal.

You can summon your turtle mount in the open world by clicking the mount summon slot at the very end of your skill bar.

Please note that the beta characters will disappear on December 4 at 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-8) at the end of the event, and any gameplay progress earned while playing on them—including rewards and currency—will not be saved.

Thank you for playing!
