GuildWars Wiki



Observer Mode allows players of all levels, and locations (post-searing), to watch PvP matches amongst the top 100 ranked guilds and all Hall of Heroes matches. As of the Guild Wars World Championship, championship matches of the concluded PvP season are also available for viewing. Matches that are currently underway are delayed by fifteen minutes to prevent cheating. By observing matches, players are able to study winning strategies employed by the top ranked guilds.

Observer Mode can be accessed while not in an explorable area or mission by pressing the appropriate hotkey. The default hotkey is 'B'.

Observer Mode has been enhanced with the release of Nightfall. A new feature means that you can watch recent GvG battles by your guild [1]

  • Your own guild's matches will appear under a separate heading. If your guild is rank 100 or above, your matches will only be viewable on public observer mode.
  • Observer mode is sometimes called TV.
