Superior Blueprints[edit]

Superior versions of each siege weapon blueprint do more damage, and cost more supply to build.

Guild Blueprints[edit]

Guild versions of the catapult and the Siege Golem can be produced by a guild, using influence. Unlike normal siege weapons, these are not activated via blueprints, but directly from the guild upgrade tab. They require less supply to build.

In addition, special guild blueprints of trebuchets, catapults, ballistas, and arrow carts can be purchased from the Guild commendation trader. These siege weapons display your guild emblem and are Account Bound. The blueprints can be bought for 12 Silver coin and 3 Guild Commendations but the number of blueprints you gain varies.

Certain Guild Blueprints cannot be purchased from a vendor, but are available on the Trading Post:


Any player can do so by using a blueprint from their inventory, which changes their skill bar with options to:

Skill Activation time Recharge time Description
Deploy Siege.png
 Deploy Siege
1 0 Deploy your siege weapon
Cancel Build.png
 Cancel Build
Put your blueprint away

Players then have the option to donate supply to the build site to change it into a siege weapon.



  • Blueprints used to be Account Bound, but this was changed in the July 9, 2013 patch, retroactively altering all blueprints in existence prior to the patch.
Stacks of blueprints that existed prior to the patch will still function as account bound until the stack is updated. Acquiring new blueprints will automatically update an existing stack. You can emulate this by using a blueprint in WvW and then canceling deployment. If you have at least 2 items in the stack, you can force an update by splitting the stack and adding the old stack onto the new stack.
