Guild War Guide Hello all, and welcome to my basic guild war guide. The purpose and scope of this guide is to show the basics of the rules, and tactics of guild wars, and to equip new and old players alike with information that can help them get started, and be successful in Guild Wars. Shout out to Kaevah of Dynasty Guild on Immortality Server for inspiring me to piece this together. She is always in worldchat encouraging Guild War participation, and her enthusiasm for the battlefield almost rivals my own. Why come to Guild War? There are many reasons: FUN. I absolutely love this event and truly look forward to it all week. It requires teamwork, coordination, and generates much love for your guildies, as well as other guilds. -Tons of experience for character leveling -Items for character development (Gems / Stardust / Silver Coin / Guild Coin / etc.) -Team pride Guild War Map Rules: Tips and Tricks: Possibly the most important tip I can give: You do NOT need to PVP or kill players in Guild war. I find that people who don't like PvP tend to shy away from events like these, so if you happen to be one of these players, come to war anyway! One of the greatest contribution you can make is farming Magic Ore and will net you as higher score. Mount up. Speed is of the essence, even when collecting Magic Ore. Also, mounts make you faster than your attacking opponent, and if they cant 1-shot you, they may miss an opportunity to finish you off before you escape. Immediately upon entering the war, bring up your map, and make note of if you are Red Team or Blue Team so that if you venture away from your base, you can quickly return to your side to collect Magic Ore. Communicate with your team for roles. You don't want to needlessly run around the map, if you are much more valuable collecting Magic Ore. There are NPC's on the map that represent both teams. The ones on you side will not attack you, the other teams WILL attack you if you venture too close. If you are not Ascended past level 100, stay near your teams NPC's for protection. They pack a punch as Ive seen them 1-shot players at a very high level. If you find that you are significantly weaker than the players on the opposing side, try to kite your attacker into your teams Guard NPC's, while you wont get credit for the kill, the other player will approach you MUCH more carefully (or even leave you alone) after that. Remember to have fun. I die alot in Guild War, and its ok. Prizes are awarded whether you win or loose, so there is no need to take it personally. I would rather fight and loose, than win an empty map. Struggle makes you strong, BE FEARLESS. Continuation: There are some advance tactics which go beyond the scope of this guide. I will probably not discuss them of a public forum, but if Guild Wars interests you, and you wish to learn more, I suggest joining a guild that regularly attends GW for more information. As always, thanks for reading.
