Discovery Mode

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Completing a mission in the Bonus Mission Pack unlocks "Discovery Mode" for that mission, which adds three hidden bonus goals to discover. For each bonus goal completed in "Discovery Mode", Durmand will give an additional authorized story to any one character on that account. The additional authorized stories can only be earned once per account. You can also only earn the gold for a bonus goal once per account.

The credit for completing a Discovery Mode is only awarded when the mission is successfully finished - in other words, completing the bonus goal but then failing to complete the mission itself would give you nothing. If a bonus goal has been achieved, when you finish the mission the following text will be displayed:
