    Titles in Guild Wars are a way to show off a player’s achievements and accomplishments in the game. There Guild Wars Factions 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.

    Guardian and Legendary Guardian Title Walkthrough

    Every title in Guild Wars is a direct reflection of how that person plays his or her personal game. Some titles focus on Player versus Cantha Environment (PvE), others focus on social orientation, and then some on Player versus Player (PvP) game play. The list of titles seems almost endless.


    There is only one way to get each of the Guardian title and that is to complete the missions for each campaign on hard mode and complete each bonus opportunity as well. Most people team up with their guild or alliance members who also need to complete the mission. Players can try and find groups in the mission town also. Make sure to complete the mission in the time allowed to gain the appropriate rank.


    Legendary Guardian

    Completing each mission and bonus in the allotted time in both hard mode and normal mode is what players will need to accomplish in order to obtain the Legendary Guardian title. This means maxing out 6 different titles.
