It's time for another Guild Wars contest! And with the Design-a-Weapon Contest, you have a chance to be immortalized forever in the second chapter of the Guild Wars story. We will be offering many new weapons and shields in the upcoming installment, and we'd love to include items based on your concepts. To enter the contest, simply send us a drawing, sketch, or printed image of a weapon or shield that you have designed...You need not keep your weapon or shield concepts within the boundaries of the Tyria that we know so well. In the coming chapter, there will be new professions and new regions that have not yet been explored. Feel free to engage in an artistic flight of fancy and to include art influences from around the globe in your weapon or shield design!

The Design-a-Weapon (2005) contest ran in the winter of 2005 to design concept art for weapons that would be included in the release of the second chapter of Guild Wars. There were over a thousand entries with only eight being selected to be implemented in-game. The closing date for the contest was December 21st, 2005.
