Twitch Drops are becoming increasingly common for upcoming games or ongoing ones celebrating milestones. Guild Wars 2 is no exception, with its tenth anniversary in a few days, as well as a recent release on Steam. What better way to commemorate a decade of endurance than rewards for its faithful player base? There are a number of goodies up for grabs and all you really need to do is watch other people play the game.
Obtaining the Guild Wars 2 Twitch Drops
The Guild Wars 2 Twitch Drops campaign has actually already begun, with the event spanning from August 23 to August 28. To participate, you’ll have to do two things. First, you need to watch any streamer who happens to be playing the game. Second, you need to link your Twitch account to your Guild Wars one to redeem anything you earned.
Linking the two accounts together can be done in a few steps. Log into the ArenaNet Account Management Site and make your way to the “Applications” tab. Next, locate the “Account Linking” section and click “Connect” to link it to Twitch. After that, follow the onscreen prompts and your two accounts will be connected shortly after. Then just sit back, relax, and let the rewards trickle in.
Guild Wars 2 Rewards You Can Receive
So, what rewards can you receive by watching streamers play Guild Wars 2? The answer hinges on how long you watch them. There are certain time milestones you hit, and when you do, you’ll get a notification on Twitch for it. The in-game redemptions you can earn are as follows:
- .5 Hours – Heroic Booster (x2)
- 1 Hour – Revive Orb
- 2 Hours – Mini Baby Mount Container
- 4 Hours – Transmutation Charge (x10)
- 6 Hours – Glowing Purple Mask
- 8 Hours – Total Makeover Kit
- 10 Hours – Guild Wars 2 Character Outfit Selection
On a related note, the developers released a statement acknowledging a bug with the Heroic Booster reward. Though you are slated to receive two, as of now, players are only getting one in-game. To rectify this, after the Twitch Drop event is over, people who hit that milestone will receive an additional two Heroic Boosters, giving them a grand total of three.
