Banner indicating an Adventure

Adventures are a feature introduced with Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, set to challenge level 80 players. Adventures are indicated on the map (Adventure (map icon).png open, Adventure closed (map icon).png closed) and in the game world, as illustrated to the right. Every adventure is performance-based and repeatable, and most of them take place in the open world. Adventures have accompanying leaderboards for friends and guild members, allowing players to compete with each other for the best scores. Upon starting an Adventure, the map event interface will track progress towards Bronze, Silver, and subsequently Gold tier performance levels. Adventures generally involve time or survival constraints, rewarding practiced movement and planned strategies.

Adventures are closely tied to masteries, with many requiring masteries to reach. Most Adventures also allow for improved scores by taking advantage of specific masteries such as Updraft Use or Bouncing Mushrooms. Additionally, for the first time an account receives Silver and Gold tier rewards, Adventures award Achievement points, and Adventures in the Heart of Maguuma also award Mastery points.

Rewards[edit]

  • Daily rewards are:
    • Fine item for Bronze
    • Masterwork item for Silver
    • Rare item for Gold
  • Lifetime rewards (once per account) are:
    • Bag of Gear for Bronze
    • Heart of Thorns mastery point for Silver
    • Heart of Thorns mastery point for Gold
  • Each reward also gives a substantial amount of experience.
