Guild Wars is celebrating its fifth anniversary and ArenaNet is throwing a massive party for its players, along with special in-game birthday presents and festival rewards to commemorate this special event. Characters that have been registered for five years will receive an exclusive miniature from this year’s birthday series in their inventory. Characters turning one, two, three and four will also be rewarded with a wrapped miniature from the corresponding set of past Guild Wars birthday presents.
The celebration runs until Noon Pacific on Thursday, April 29.
