Character Slots for Head Start Event
We're happy to let you know that if you own Prophecies and have activated a Factions Pre-order on your account, you will be able to access your two new character slots during the Factions Head Start Event. The slots will become available and will have access to Cantha from 12:01 a.m. PDT (7:01 GMT) on Thursday, April 27th through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 28th (6:59 GMT on April 29th). After the close of the Head Start Event, Canthan characters and Factions content will not be accessible until a retail key is activated on the account. The character slots will enjoy a "grace period" of ten days, to allow you to enter your retail access key and make them permanent.
GWFC and PvP Articles
If you'd like to know about player-vs.-player gameplay, you should head over to the Competitive Section's Articles subsection to read two articles on that very subject. The first tells you about Random Arena, Team Arena, and Alliance Battle combat. The second discusses guild-vs.-guild combat in Heroes' Ascent.
At the same time, you can catch another Match Report—that on the finals of the GWFC—over on this link.
