  • New PvP Primer

    The official site for Guild Wars has another issue in the weekly series PvP Primer posted. This one covers templates and more...

    The template system came out with the release of Nightfall, satisfying the desire of many fans for an easier way to manage characters, as well as offering streamlined control of the newly introduced Nightfall Heroes. Templates allow you to save your favorite builds for later use and even share those builds with other players. Skill templates work for both PvP and PvE, but only PvP characters can use the equipment templates.

  • PvP Primer: Builds for Alliance Battles and More

    The official site for Guild Wars has been updated with another issue of PvP Primer.

    Like any other PvP arena, what you learn in Alliance Battles has relevance elsewhere in the game, so rather than offering specific builds for Alliance Battles, each of the builds we discuss below has variations for Alliance Battles, solo play (Random Arenas or pick-up-groups for Alliance Battles), and GvG. Studying how the skills interact with each other, synergize with allied players, and affect enemies will help you understand these builds and prepare you should you encounter them in GvG or other highly competitive areas.

  • PvP Primer: Alliance Battles

    The official site for Guild Wars has posted another in the series of PvP Primers. This one covers Alliance Battles.

    Cross-training

    Because of the varied opposition you'll face in 12v12 Alliance Battles, you have many chances to improve your PvP aptitude. For example, when facing disorganized enemies, observe their movements and note their failures. Alliance Battles repeatedly demonstrate the efficacy of split tactics. You will soon find that a team that clumps into a moving mass when traveling from one shrine to another will most likely lose. In cases where controlling multiple resources determines the outcome of the match, splitting your team usually results in a better outcome.

To help with this process, I have put together a team build for us to analyze and even included skill template codes if you want to try it out.

  • PvP Primer: Finding a Group

    The official site for Guild Wars has been updated with another in the series of PvP Primers.

    The preceding Primer articles have focused on activities you can do by yourself to improve your PvP ability. At some point, however, you may reach a point where you've exhausted solo options and wish to begin playing with other people. Note that should you choose not to make the leap toward playing with other people, you can still continue to PvP by yourself and compete in our 1v1 Hero Battle championship series.
