Extra Life 2022 Is Next Week

Team ArenaNet’s Extra Life Game Day is next week on November 4. We’re overwhelmed by your generosity and community spirit; with our community’s power we’ve already raised over $3,300 USD this year to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals! Our ultimate goal is to bring our lifetime total funds raised to $625,000 USD, and we need your help to do it.

Your donations will help children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada care for ill and critically injured children whose families need support. To donate to Extra Life now, visit the Team ArenaNet page. If you’d like to help us reach our goal by streaming any game or telling your friends and family about Extra Life, choose to join Team ArenaNet when you sign up! If you want to form your own team, you can select “Create a sub team” when you sign up to join the ArenaNet Super Team.

The funds you raise as a member of Team ArenaNet will contribute to our overall donation total. As in previous years, if we reach the $25,000 USD donation goal, we’ll match it to bring the total donation to $50,000!

Extra Life Game Day Livestream

On Game Day, members of Team ArenaNet participate in a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise funds, have fun, and hang out with the community. The stream begins on Friday, November 4 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7) and ends on Saturday, November 5 at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7).

During the livestream, Team ArenaNet will play Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, give some behind-the-scenes looks at game development, and more—including the traditional yearly head shaving. (It isn’t an ArenaNet Extra Life event if we make it through with unscathed heads.) Join them in game or watch the stream on our official Twitch channel. We’ll see you there!

Donation Strike Mission: Kids Can’t Wait

Log in to Guild Wars 2 between October 25 and November 15 to receive the title “The Extra Life” if you didn’t unlock it in previous years.

A special enhancement effect is available in game from now until November 16:

  • +5% Magic Find
  • +5% EXP from All Sources
  • +3% WvW Reward Track Progress
  • +3% PvP Reward Track Progress

The effect will gain another stack for every $10,000 USD we raise. To activate new stacks of the enhancement effect and view hourly donation total updates, just visit the city of Lion’s Arch after you log in to Guild Wars 2.

2022 Extra Life Donation Bundle

Starting today, Evon and the Black Lion Trading Company are also offering special donation items to help us reach our goal. This year’s bundle contains the dyeable Guardian Angel Cape, five Extra Life Karma Boosters, and five Temporary Selfless Potions.

Extra Life donation items will be available until November 8, and purchasing any of them will grant you a special version of the in-game title “The Extra Life” in stylish blue text. We’ll donate all proceeds to Extra Life.

2021 Extra Life Donation Bundle

If you missed the previous donation bundle, it’s back in the Gem Store for a limited time. We’ll be retiring this bundle after this year, so drop by and pick it up before November 8!

Thank You!

Our annual Extra Life Game Day is a success because the Guild Wars 2 community is full of real-life heroes. Let’s break our fundraising record again this year!
