  • New FAQ and Heroes Profiles

    The official site for Guild Wars has been updated with a new Nightfall FAQ and a listing of Heroes.

    Origin: Kournan
    Age: 25
    Profession: Warrior

    An idealistic and brutally effective soldier, Koss has great hopes for the latest generation of Sunspears. He's proud of what they've done, sometimes to the point of arrogance. With brute strength and overwhelming confidence, he cheerfully muscles his way through one confrontation after another, often using the same approach when dealing with people.

"They are a wildly popular component to this game that we've spent significant time developing, and we're thrilled our fans have responded to it the way they have."
