Now live! Guild Wars 2 beta weekend focuses on testing spears (and all of the new combat abilities that come with them)

This weekend Guild Wars 2 is beta testing the upcoming Janthir Wilds expansion, focusing on the new spear weapon type (now available for land-based combat) and its abilities across all professions. The beta is live now and runs through June 30. The beta is available to all players — no invite necessary — so don’t let yourself fall for any convoluted beta scams.

To participate in the beta, you just need to have a Guild Wars 2 account in good standing — free accounts qualify. Simply open the Guild Wars 2 client and look for a character slot labeled “beta.” Select it to create a beta character of any profession, where you’ll be able to test out the new spear skills.

If you aren’t up on the state of spears, check out the previews of spears for Mesmer, Revenant, and Elementalist; for Warrior, Thief, and Engineer; and for Guardian, Ranger, and Necromancer. Now, head into the beta for some stabbing (or slashing, I don’t judge) fun.
