Disambig icon.png This article is about PvP experience. For the Guild mission, see PvP Rank (Guild mission).

PvP Rank is a measurement of a player's account wide experience in structured PvP. Rank is increased by accumulating rank points. Rank points can only be gained once a player reaches PvP level 20.

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 Player vs. Player, 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 and the duration the player was part of the match.

Additionally, volunteering for auto-balance grants you the win bonus and provides you with an additional 25 Rank Point.png rank points.

Each top-stat you earn gives you another 5 Rank Point.png.

Match Type Max Rank Points per Win Max Rank Points per Loss
Custom Arena 500 Rank Point.png 200 Rank Point.png
Unranked Arena

In custom arenas it takes 7 minutes to reach the maximum amount of rank points.

Rank rewards[edit]

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

10 - 29 Small Rank-Up Chest.pngMedium Rank-Up Chest
30 - 80+ Small Rank-Up Chest.pngLarge Rank-Up Chest

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 PvP Reward Track which must then be completed to gain a Mordrem variation of the respective rank finisher. These Mordrem rank finishers have an overall green hue and contain thorns around the banner. All of them use the same base model except the Mordrem Dragon Finisher which has a Heart of Thorns legendary Wyvern instead.
