What are Titles
Titles in Guild Wars are a way to show off a player's achievements and accomplishments in the game. There are a total of 44 different title tracks across all the Guild Wars campaigns; Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall, and Eye of the North. However, players can only achieve a maximum of 43 on any given character. The two titles that collide with each other are Survivor and Defender of Ascalon. You cannot get Defender of Ascalon without dying and you cannot die to get Survivor. So to get one the character will miss out on getting the other.
Titles are displayed under the Guild Wars character’s name. To view titles in progress or to see those that are completed tap the “h" key while in game and a screen will come up with a tab that allows you an overview of all your titles. Players can also change which title is displayed on their character from this screen as well.
Lucky and Unlucky Titles
The Lucky and Unlucky titles are core titles in the Guild Wars game that do not directly deal with any specific campaign but instead with winning or loosing points in different aspects of game play. Winning festival tickets and candy cane shards is the fastest way to achieve both of these titles. However, these are not available all the time. The only other way to get the Lucky and Unlucky titles is to open chests with lockpicks. Lucky points are given if a player keeps the lockpick and Unlucky points are given if the lockpick is broken. Four-Leaf Clovers can be used in the game and if that effect is removal of your character's death penalty (DP) by 15% then 4 points are awarded to the Lucky title track. Four-Leaf Clovers can be purchased all year round from other players who kept them.
There are 6 ranks in the Lucky title track:
1 – 50,000 Points – Charmed
- 2 – 100,000 Points – Lucky
- 3 – 250,000 Points – Favored
- 4 – 500,000 Points – Prosperous
- 5 – 1,000,000 Points – Golden
- 6 – 2,500,000 Points – Blessed by Fate
There are 7 ranks in the Unlucky title track:
- 1 – 5,000 Points – Hapless
- 2 – 10,000 Points – Unlucky
- 3 – 25,000 Points – Unfavored
- 4 – 50,000 Points – Tragic
- 5 – 100,000 Points – Wretched
- 6 – 250,000 Points – Jinxed
- 7 – 500,000 Points – Cursed by Fate
The Lucky title brings benefits to those characters who move up in the ranks. For every level in the Lucky tier a 2% lockpick bonus is given. This increases by 2% for each level stopping at a maximum of 12% lockpick bonus. This title is for all characters on a single account.
- Rank 1 – 2% Bonus
- Rank 2 – 4% Bonus
Rank 3 – 6% Bonus
- Rank 4 – 8% Bonus
- Rank 5 – 10% Bonus
- Rank 6 – 12 % Bonus
The Unlucky title is more limited than the Lucky because of the Four-Leaf Clovers not working for both tracks. Lockpicks can get expensive but so can tickets for the festival games. Standing in the Nine Rings game will assure players they get both Lucky and Unlucky points but remember to keep tickets in stock.
Lucky title track offers benefits to spending the time and money to get the title. The lockpick bonus helps out greatly when treasure hunting. Chests can be farmed at any time but lockpicks will be pricey. Look into these title tracks and save up money for the long journey ahead. Good luck farming points!
