Guild Wars Nightfall PVP Preview Event

On the weekend of July 28th to July 30th, players will be able to experience a special sneak preview of the newly announced Guild Wars Nightfall campaign through our Guild Wars Nightfall PVP Preview Event!

During this time, both Guild Wars Prophecies and Guild Wars Factions owners will be able to:

  • Create new PVP characters using the upcoming Dervish and Paragon professions.
  • Test out both classes' exciting new skills in both beta-exclusive preview arenas and current battle arenas.
  • Compete against other players in special PvP tasks to gain items that will be exchangeable for a variety of rewards throughout the weekend event.

To make testing of the new professions even simpler, secondary profession changers will be available throughout the duration of the event. These special characters will allow existing players to change their pvp character's secondary profession without having to re-create them if they so choose.

Come and join us for the festivities, and get a chance to test out the exciting new professions and skills during this special weekend event!
