Update - Friday, June 22, 2007[edit]

Alliance Battles[edit]

To encourage active players in Alliance Battles, we have adjusted the faction rewards, increasing the rewards for winning teams and decreasing the rewards for losing teams. The new rewards are as follows:

  • During the battle, players will now earn 1 faction point and 10 Balthazar faction per kill.
  • After the battle, players will now earn 1 faction point for each point scored by their team. Players on the winning team will be awarded a further bonus of 1,000 faction points.

Competitive Missions[edit]

To encourage active players in Competitive Missions, we have adjusted faction rewards, increasing the rewards for winning teams and decreasing the rewards for losing teams. The new rewards are as follows:

The Jade Quarry[edit]

  • After the mission, players will now earn 20 faction points for each jade slab collected by their team. Players on the winning team will be awarded a further bonus of 750 faction points.

Fort Aspenwood[edit]

After the mission, players will now receive the following rewards:

  • Kurzick players will receive a faction point reward of two times the final completion percentage of the Vengeance of the Gods.
  • Luxon players will receive 40 faction points for each unique gate destroyed during the mission.
  • Players on the winning team will be awarded a further bonus of 600 faction points.

Auto Targeting[edit]

  • Added the ability to toggle Auto Targeting. To enable and disable this feature, players can use the "Auto-target foes when there's no chosen target" checkbox in the General Options panel (F11).
  • Auto Targeting will no longer select an item that is reserved for another player.

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Made preparations for the Monthly Automated Tournament Playoff Event.

Guild Wars Wiki Notes[edit]

  • Hero Battles group size has increased from 8-64 players to 8-128 players. Now 7 rounds are played instead of 6, because of increased group size.
  • Gold Charr Salvage Kits now drop in pre-Searing. They are the equivalent of a 5 use Expert Salvage Kit.
  • For the GvG monthly tournament two lists are shown, one for swiss round and one for single elimination. Single elimination is implemented for the monthly tournaments.
