Guardians and Defiant, divided by a fierce ideological rift, battle each other for limited resources and strategic territory in the war for Telara. Join the fray in your choice of instanced Warfronts, the vast open world, or the massive inter-dimensional battlefields of Conquest. Regardless of where you fight, your faction will hail you as an Ascended hero, and reward you with incredible XP, currency, gear, and glory.
Join a Warfront and vie for dominance in intense, fast-paced struggles. Each Warfront offers your faction a unique resource or advantage, and features innovative mechanics to keep the blood pumping — both in your veins and out of your foes. Guard over the ancient Fang of Regulos in the Black Garden, blaze a fiery trail through Whitefall Steppes to claim precious sourcestone, and much more.
Conquest delivers the feel of open world PvP, throwing you into cross-shard battles over alternate versions of zones you thought you knew. Three factions have arisen – Oathsworn, Dominion, and Nightfall – each with their own vision for the future of the Ascended. Choose your side and strive for victory with a huge number of teammates as you tackle spreading warfare, PvE objectives, crafting goals, land-control mechanics, and more on a battlefield the size of an entire zone.
Battle across Telara to gain XP and level up just as you would from completing quests and delving into dungeons. Earn valuable gear and high-level PvP stats, as well as Favor, a currency that can be traded to PvP Quartermasters for awesome rewards, and Prestige, which furthers your Planar Attunement and unlocks titles and abilities beyond the level cap. Conquest combatants can also charge their "Conquest Bar," which provides bonuses that persist after the fighting ends!
