Players love new and special items, and we love including players in the creation of those items! We'd like to invite you to participate in our Guild Wars Design-A-Weapon Contest, where you have an opportunity to submit your vision of a cool new weapon and to possibly see it become a permanent part of Guild Wars.

We are looking for creative and appealing new designs for all sorts of weapons: swords, axes, bows, hammers, spears, rods, wands, scythes, staves, and daggers. Not to be forgotten are the shields and focus items that are also used in combat. You may draw your design inspiration from any of the regions: Tyria, Cantha, or Elona.

To enter the contest, simply send us a drawing, sketch, or printed image of an original new weapon, shield, or focus item and submit it to us for judging. The prize? Up to twenty of the best designs will be placed permanently into the Guild Wars world, and the designers of these weapons will win website recognition and Guild Wars goodies, too!

The concept for the Glacial Blade


Winners: Each of the eleven winners received their choice of a copy of Guild Wars Nightfall (standard edition) signed by the Guild Wars Development Team or a full set of Guild Wars Skill Pin Set #1 or a PvP Unlock Pack. In addition, each winner will receive a Guild Wars Nightfall t-shirt and a code for a Guild Wars character slot, if character slots are available in their location.

Honorable Mentions: Each of the seventeen honorable mention recipients received A Guild Wars Nightfall t-shirt, a Guild Wars character slot, and two random Guild Wars Skill Pins.

Finalists: Each of the seventy-nine Finalists received two random Skill Pins.
