Guild Wars Nightfall PvP Edition[edit]

The PvP editions are only available for ordering online in the official Guild Wars store. The PvP editions give instant access and full skill lists for the PvP mode and the professions covered by the respective campaigns. They do not provide access to the PvE campaigns. PvP editions are cumulative; multiple editions purchased will allow PvP players to access the sum of all unlocked skills. PvP and regular editions can be mixed, but then only allowing players to travel into the PvE worlds that the full editions provide.

The Guild Wars Nightfall PvP Edition allows players to create the Paragon and Dervish characters, in addition to the professions introduced in Guild Wars Prophecies.

Additionally, the following skills are unlocked, for a total of 701 skills:

Professions[edit]

Two additional professions were introduced in Nightfall.

Paragon Paragon

A ranged spear wielding class, they rally allies with a variety of chants and shouts while attacking enemies at range.

Dervish Dervish

A melee class specializing in the use of scythes to deal damage to all enemies around them. Their faith grants them the use of powerful enchantments.

Elona[edit]

The continent that Guild Wars Nightfall is based on, offers many opportunities for the player.

Continent of Elona

5 distinct regions[edit]

Istan
An island province littered with the ruins of an earlier Elonian empire.
Kourna
Known for its fiercely loyal soldiers, dedicated army, expansive estates, and thriving agriculture.
Vabbi
This northern province is home to wealthy merchant princes, a land where successful Elonians believe their safety, security, and affluence allow them to sponsor many of their nation’s greatest achievements.
The Desolation
The most hostile region in all of Elona; any mortal who steps into its sands will be instantly slain. It is a land of poisonous sulfur deserts home to many undead creatures and the great Junundu wurms.
Realm of Torment
The prison of Abaddon, the fallen God of Secrets. He was exiled to this place by the five Gods of Tyria. From there he seeks to gain back control and spread evil into the world of the mortals, eventually trying to break from his prison.
