The stand-alone Guild Wars: Factions is the second campaign in ArenaNet's massively multiplayer online RPG, The Factions campaign, which can be played either connected with the regular Guild Wars or as its own separate game. Guild Wars Factions takes place on the continent of Cantha, where new and existing Guild Wars players join an epic quest to defeat an ancient evil and save a war-torn empire.

New scored challenge missions and strategic competitive missions allow players to test their role-playing prowess and earn the right for their alliance to take control of cities, towns and outposts. Large-scale alliance battles pit teams from opposing factions against each other in a struggle to conquer new territory and redraw the battle lines across the continent of Cantha. New elite missions allow the most skilled players exclusive access to areas of the ultimate cooperative challenge.

A Continent torn Asunder
Two hundred years ago the continent of Cantha was forever changed by the hatred and fury of a traitor brought to justice. Now, in the midst of a brutal civil war, the malignant spirit of the traitor Shirto Tagachi has returned to complete the destruction he began. Join more than one million players around the world to defend Cantha against this new menace as you explore its jade seas, petrified forests, and lush urban cities. This time, it's up to you!

New Features:

New Ways to Play!

Play new story-driven missions and quests, or try the exciting new mission types!

  • More than 50 locations to challenge players of all levels
  • New weapons and runes to master and command
  • More than 100 new monsters to slay plus new pets to do your bidding
  • 150 skill for the new professions plus 150 new skills for the six Guild Wars core professions

Two completely new character types: the Assassin and Ritualist. Both of these characters should provide new ways for old players to experience the game and more choice for those that have never stepped into ArenaNet's fantasy universe.

The Assassin
Exclusive to the continent of Cantha, the Assassin is a deadly combo of agility and double weapon damage. These characters can appear and disappear from combat, striking a heavy blow then retreating before an enemy can retaliate. They wear light-weight armor with lots of room for mobility, making it the ideal profession for those who value swiftness over brute force. The challenge in designing the look for the assassin was in creating something that was both fresh and recognizable. Everyone has an image of what an assassin should look like, but rarely do those images agree. For the Guild Wars Assassin, weapons are a fashion statement, which is the way it ought to be if your job is delivering death.

The Ritualist
A cross between a necromancer and a monk, Ritualists use energies from the spirit realm to cast their spells. New arrivals to Cantha are frequently unnerved by these spellcasters. Ritualists appear to walk around blind, routinely covering their eyes and instead relying on an Inner Sight to find their way through the spirit world. The bones of small animals are a common element in the garb worn by Ritualists. They claim the magic in once-live objects brings them closer to the spirits that once inhabited the physical flesh.
