Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Beta Access Offered by ArenaNet

spring update 2 for guild wars 2

You are in luck if you are currently playing Guild Wars 2, and if you are not then this might be the right time to start playing!

I say that because ArenaNet is pulling the community into playing the game by tying in access to a new Heart of Thorns beta with an in-game activity.

As of today, Maguuma Wastes are going to bring you portals to the closed beta, all you need to do is loot the specific item:

Starting tomorrow, April 28, heroes adventuring in the Maguuma Wastes have a chance to find a mysterious portal to the heart of the Maguuma Jungle. Looting one of these special trophy items grants you access to the next Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns PvE closed beta event!

Moreover, the developers have explained that the portals will not be required for claiming your entry to the beta meaning that it wouldn’t matter even if they get misplaced or devoured somehow. The item you looted is the key, as soon as you loot the item, you are in!

For a limited time only, rare portals will drop from enemies in Dry Top and the Silverwastes. Portals can’t be traded between players, so bring your friends along to hunt for their very own! Don’t worry if your portal gets misplaced in a sandstorm or devoured by a passing ravager; beta access will be flagged upon looting the item, and it’s not required to claim participation.

If there is anything else that you need to know about the Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns beta, ArenaNet have also set up a dedicated FAQ section on their website, here it is.
