The Guild Wars Anniversary Celebration Begins Tomorrow

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on April 21, 2020

April 28, 2020, marks fifteen years since the launch of the very first Guild Wars® game, and we’re celebrating with in-game rewards, store sales, and more!

Join the Party in Guild Wars

Log in to the original Guild Wars starting April 22 and enjoy the anniversary celebration at Embark Beach.

The Ancient Anniversary Weaponsmith’s inventory has been reinforced with the Anniversary set, containing weapons with familiar looks but previously unavailable attribute requirements.

Additionally, at the Ancient Anniversary Weaponsmith, heroes can acquire a Proof of Triumph. Carrying this relic will cause an extra enemy group and boss to appear in four late-game maps—fight your way to them, and be sure to bring a Signet of Capture along to acquire a new PvE-only elite skill for each profession! If you miss this year’s celebration, don’t worry—the Proof of Triumph will continue to work when the festival ends so you can adventure with a friend to seek out the new skills.

Anniversary Livestream

Next Tuesday, members of the Guild Wars development team will be on stream to talk about some of their favorite memories. Watch live and hang out with us in chat on April 28 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7).

Guild Wars Store Sales

Get amazing discounts on outfits, upgrades, storage, and more! Guild Wars store items will be on sale starting April 22.
