General Information About WvW

Guild Wars 2 features two different styles of player versus player combat. One of the newest additions, and also a very unique one to MMO games, is the mode called World vs World (or WvW). In this particular gametype of GW2 players from 3 different servers can go all out in combat that spans across 4 maps. Each map can support hundreds of players, making this a truly massive PvP battle.

How to Enter WvW Matches

 

Some players seem to be confused on how to join World vs World matches. There are 3 different methods of doing it. You can either hit the B key on your keyboard which brings up the WvW stat window and choose a world to join, find and enter a portal to Lion’s Arch or open the window for the Hero Panel. Within the Hero Panel you need to simply click the Hero tab and then click on the button that says “Be in the Mists” to join WvW battles.

Holding Objectives in WvW

In order to score points for your entire team in WvW matches you and your team players must hold certain objectives. These include resource camps, keeps, towers and a castle. Each is worth a certain amount of points. Resource camps are worth 5 points, towers are worth 10 points, keeps are worth 25 points and, finally, the castle is worth a massive 50 points. In order to receive points from each your team needs to hold the objective for 5 minutes. Every 5 minutes the point value for an objective will be added to your team’s total score.

Capturing an objective is no simple task. On top of having to ward off opposing team players you’ll also have to take out defenses setup around objectives which can include an assortment of NPC guards, walls, doors, a Tower/Keep/Castle lord and inner walls. Once your team has captured the objective, however, these defenses will work for you rather than against you. It is wise to try and protect these to ensure opposing teams don’t overrun and take over the objective.

Using Siege Weapons in WvW

Siege weapons can be very useful for teams trying to capture objectives. They can quickly and easily dispose of medium to large groups of other PvP players attempting to gain the objectives. These come in a large variety including cannons, mortars and hot oil. There are others such as a flame ram and ballista. Most are used to either fire rocks or explosives toward enemy players. Some are short range, others are long range and nearly all are a bit slow to fire.

Gaining Experience and Items

For every kill you get, whether it be NPC or player, you’ll earn a bit of experience and have the chance of grabbing loot drops as well. These are NOT items that the actual player is carrying, just rewards for killing the opponent. It can be anything. All drops are randomly generated so you never really know what you’re going to get for killing an enemy player.
