  • PvP Primer—Random Arena Summary

    The official site for Guild Wars has been updated with a primer on PvP tactics.

    We've covered Random Arenas from several angles already, but it deserves further discussion. Randoms have long served as a staple for PvPers of all sorts, from completely new players to the most distinguished of veterans. If you play in Randoms long enough, you'll probably end up with someone from a top guild on your team or, if unlucky, on the other team. You may recognize the specific character name of a player you've seen in observer mode, or perhaps one or your allies has some gold or silver cape trim (which would indicate they come from a guild that has placed in a tournament). But whether you get grouped with new or experienced players, you can learn from both.

    Keep reading to learn more. Are you a whiz at PvP? More of a fearful beginner? Share your experiences with us in the Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!

    I've logged a good 556 hours in Guild Wars since the original game's April 2005 release and 18 months later, I'm still diggin' it -- thanks in no small part to the just-released Guild Wars Nightfall, the third campaign setting for ArenaNet's free-to-play action-MMORPG.
