Campaign Prophecies

For those who have succeeded where many have failed and who have come this far, the only thing that stands between them and Ascension is the Doppelganger. It is their mirror image which they must defeat alone to test their ability to outsmart their foes. Against it there is no relying on expensive equipment or hiding behind party members.

The Doppelganger copies your character's set of skills, and uses its own set of attributes, health, and energy. The player must devise a way to defeat the Doppelganger by exploiting its weaknesses; for the most part, these lie in its very basic AI, which does not include complex strategies (such as skill chaining).

  • The Doppelganger is technically a monk (i.e. it drops monk skill tomes in Hard mode), but effectively mimics any profession via attributes. Presumably, in the game's mechanics, profession cannot be changed in an instance.
  • Doppelganger was called "Mirror Self" before the June 15, 2005 update.
  • For long-range attacks, the Doppelganger formerly wielded an Eternal Bow, but began using a Tormented Spear at some point after the release of Guild Wars Nightfall.
  • Before the January 18, 2010 update, the Doppelganger was able to copy and use Vampirism at Sunspear rank 9, even though it is a PvE-only skill.
  • The word Doppelganger originates from the German word Doppelgänger, which means "Double Walker", and is considered a bad omen or evil spirit in folklore.
