WvW Capture and Hold missions are World versus World guild missions where members work together to take an objective and hold it long enough to reach Tier 1 within the set time limit. It may fill the WvW mission slot, and potentially any general mission slots if "No Preference" is selected.


The mission must first be activated by a guild member with suitable permissions. A minimum of 3 guild members (representing the guild is not required, but they must be members) must then participate in an event to capture an objective of the specified type on the Eternal Battlegrounds or Borderlands map. It is not necessary to claim the objective. The objective must then be held until it reaches Tier 1. If the mission time limit has not yet expired, this completes the mission.

  • You may activate the mission just before the objective's capture.
  • You will not receive credit if the mission timer expires before the objective reaches Tier 1.
