Disambig icon.png This article is about the Nightfall promotion blessings. For the Factions or Eye of the North blessings, see Bounty-like blessing. For the Zaishen Challenge Quest, see Zaishen Bounty.

Bounties are blessings that you can get in Guild Wars Nightfall from certain NPCs found at most resurrection shrines in the campaign. They supply you with double experience (in normal mode) and a certain amount of title points (for Sunspear/Lightbringer titles) per kill of a special type of creature in the area.

Note: You only get title points for the first time you kill each enemy. If an enemy you already killed becomes resurrected, you will not gain title points for killing it again. However, you still gain title points even if the enemies do not give you experience (you must still be under the rank cap, see below).

The amount of Sunspear Points you gain per kill is different. The further you are in the game, the more Sunspear Points you get (it maxes at 7 points per kill in normal mode and 8 points per kill in hard mode).
