Update -- April 22, 2020
This April brings us to fifteen years since the release of Guild Wars in 2005. In celebration, we're adding some new rewards to the yearly Anniversary Celebration:
- The Ancient Anniversary Weaponsmith's inventory has been reinforced with the Anniversary set, containing weapons with familiar looks but previously unavailable attribute requirements.
- Additionally, at the Ancient Anniversary Weaponsmith, heroes can acquire a Proof of Triumph. Carrying this relic will cause an extra enemy group and boss to appear in four late-game maps—fight your way to them, and be sure to bring a Signet of Capture along to acquire a new PvE-only Elite Skill for each profession! If you miss this year's celebration, don't worry—the Proof of Triumph will continue to work when the festival ends so you can adventure with a friend to seek out the new skills.
Guild Wars Wiki Notes
- A total of ten new elite skills were added to the game.
- Certain newly introduced weapons have an attribute requirement that does not match their mastery attribute, causing them to not deal the listed damage unless the respective weapon mastery is also of a high enough rank (i.e. Axe Mastery is also required to deal full damage with the Anniversary Axe "Engrave" even if the requirement is listed to be Energy Storage). See Damage calculation for more information.
Update -- February 20, 2020
