GW2: Seige Weapons and their role in PvP

Guild Wars 2 Siege Weapons are used by players in PvP battles and they are also environmental weapons. These weapons are fixed into their build location but for the exception of the Siege golems that are movable. These weapons are only usable by the group of people who created them, while the foes can attack as well as damaging the structures.

Essential for both defense and offense in the WvW combat, these types of weapons are very important in winning an impossible battle.

When these weapons are placed, the build location is also created and players are required to utilize supply in order to complete the weapons and use them. A bar showing yellow life is the one that indicates the progress of their build. The site for building these weapons can be damage during the building time, and when they take more damage you will also need more supply in order to complete them. If these siege weapons are destroyed, the weapons and the supply used in building the site will be lost.

If you want to build GW2 Siege Weapons, you will need a blueprint which can be purchased from Siege masters or can be found at different mini-dungeon in the Mists.
