Server reset is the term used to describe automated changes such as the daily reset of daily achievements and weekly reset of WvW matches. Most changes occur daily at 00:00, but a few changes happen at fixed times throughout the week. Some content is time-gated: this means that whenever it is completed it cannot be done again until the next reset, or fewer rewards can be gained from it until then.

Daily reset[edit]

Daily reset happens at 00:00. The following things are affected by the daily reset:



Special events

Crafted items[edit]

For crafting recipes that are limited to one item per day. The remaining time is indicated by a countdown timer at the bottom of the item's production panel from crafting stations.


Soft-reset on any once-per-day node, including:



† Only the items offered by this vendor are affected by the daily reset. See their article for when the NPC moves locations.

Weekly reset[edit]

  • Monday 07:30Guild mission rewards reset and new random missions given to guilds.
  • Monday 07:30Raid rewards and progress reset. [1]
  • Monday 07:30Black Lion keys may only be obtained from the level 10 personal story once per account per week.
  • Monday 07:30 — Weekly Festival Merchants reset their inventory.
  • Monday 00:01 — Weekly limit on gold transfer via mail or guild bank is reset.
  • Tuesday 00:00Bjora Marches strike mission rotates.
  • Thursday 20:00Map bonus rewards reset.
  • Friday 18:00 (roughly) — World versus World reset for EU servers (the exact time varies from week to week). [2]
  • Saturday 02:00 (roughly) — World versus World reset for NA servers (the exact time varies from week to week).


  • Diminishing returns can prevent people from receiving reward and ground chests from world bosses.
  • Some objects, such as open-world chests and once-per-day nodes, only experience a soft-reset during the daily server reset. For the object to fully reset, one of the following must also happen:
    • You must wait 23 hours from the last time you used the object.
    • You must join a different map instance. For example, you can taxi to a friend on a different instance. A game update will force you onto a different instance, and thus satisfy this condition.
