Massively's Guild Wars costume set giveaway

Shawn Schuster

With this year's Wintersday in Guild Wars comes quite a few new features to the game. One of the most significant is the costuming system. These costumes allow your character to dress as they like with costumes that fit into special costume slots, not affecting your normal armor stats.

Sound like something you'd be interested in trying? Great! Because we have ten of these costumes to give away to our loyal readers. Simply reply to this post before 8am EST on December 23rd stating which costume you'd like -- either Dwayna or Grenth. We will pick and notify five random winners for each set (for a total of ten winners) on December 23rd. The giveaway is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada (excluding Quebec), and everyone who enters must be 18 or older. You may enter only once, and any comments without Grenth or Dwayna will be ignored. The retail value of each costume set is $6.99 USD. Click here to read the official Joystiq Network contest rules. Follow along after the jump for a description of each costume, and complete instructions on how to claim your code if you're chosen as a lucky winner.

[Edit: Comments are now closed.]

Grenth's Regalia
This imposing Grenth costume represents the rarely-seen, fashionable side of the Tyrian god of death. Deck out your character in regal morbidity with this costume and matching headpiece, and spread a little darkness this Wintersday!

Dwayna's Regalia
Your character will embody the luminous beauty of Dwayna when wearing this elegant costume. Its feathers and finery shimmer in a fitting tribute to the goddess of air and light. The Dwayna costume also comes with a glamorous matching headpiece.
