Guild Wars 2 is headed to its fifth anniversary and already is swinging hard this year with the new expansion, Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire coming out in under a month. To make this anniversary even bigger, ArenaNet is holding a contest for users to create their own weapons for the game. Just head over to the official contest page for complete rules and templates.
This contest runs through October 8 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time (UTC-7). Simply download the .ZIP file that has the full rules, guidelines, and templates and design your weapon. Each entrant can submit 3 entries, so make a few awesome ideas and see which stick. After October 8, ArenaNet will choose 20 finalists for the Guild Wars 2 community to vote on. After voting ends, “[t]he top three winning concepts will be used as inspiration for the creation of new in-game weapons!” In addition to getting your design used for in-game weapons, there are other prizes that the finalists will receive including gems, shirts, art books, and more!
This is an awesome opportunity for any fan of Guild Wars 2. Good luck to everyone!
