PvP Rank is a measurement of a player's account wide experience in structured PvP. Rank is increased by accumulating rank points.

Viewing Rank[edit]

When entering the structured PvP game type, the player's experience bar turns into a PvP rank bar. Here the player can see the current rank and progress towards next rank.

To view total accumulated rank points, the player can open the Achievements panel, look under Competitive, and view progress towards the PVP Conqueror achievement.

Earning rank points[edit]

Rank points are earned at the end of a match and are based on whether your team won or lost. You may get fewer points if you join an already running match, or if you score too few personal points. Additionally, being auto-balanced provides you with an additional 25 rank points, and each top-stat you earn gives you another 5.

Rank rewards[edit]

Whenever an account reaches a new PvP Rank, the player receives a rank-up chest based on the rank earned.

For every 10 ranks earned a new finisher is unlocked for the account. This can also be displayed through the /rank command anywhere except for inside a WvW battleground, underwater, or during a structured PvP match.

With the release of Heart of Thorns, each 10 ranks also unlocks a new jungle themed Reward Track, that gives a variation of the rank finisher.

PvP rank emote[edit]


  • In the December PvP update, the command /rank was updated to allow /rank [rank_level] to show any unlocked rank finisher. (e.g. /rank 43 spawns the tiger rank finisher if it is unlocked in the account).
  • An ArenaNet developer was seen with Rank 205 on a test server during a livestream.
  • Until April 15, 2014, the highest verified rank a player had achieved was Phoenix (70-79). The update changed the ranking system and many players were promoted to Dragon (80)
  • The Wolf rank animation bears a strong resemblance to the Three Wolf Moon meme.
