Blessing

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Skill Type. Blessings are often a special temporary bonus granted by an NPC.

[edit] Acquisition

Blessings are granted by the following NPCs, typically requiring a payment in gold:

  1. Depending on the location of the Kurzick-Luxon border.
  2. Free. However, some will stop offering bounties in normal mode after the player character has achieved certain ranks in their promotion or reputation title.

[edit] Characteristics

  • Blessings cannot be removed or abused by foes; they do not satisfy the while enchanted requirement of upgrade components or skills.
  • They end when you zone, but not when you die.
  • Blessings granted by avatars of the gods usually last 20 minutes.
  • Blessings of the same type do not stack.
  • Most blessings are only given to individual players and only affect that character. (The sole exception is Holy Blessing: the health benefits are also granted to the player's living heroes and henchmen.)
  • The Morale Boost from "To courage" in Prophecies is also granted to the player's heroes; however, the Morale Boost from Favor of the Gods in Factions and Nightfall is not granted to the player's heroes.
