Hey guys :)

I'm quite interested in WvW and I would like to play it in this upcoming beta. However, I have no idea how to play it. I remember checking it out in-game, but nothing really explained how the supply caravans and things worked.

From what I can tell, your keep gains supply via caravans, and then you can talk to someone in order to build things like cannons, burning oil cauldrons, etc. Whenever I play the game, I always have 10 supply, and whenever I get to a keep that has a full depot of supply, I can't do anything with it. I can't talk to anyone to build anything. Am I just completely missing the point here?

Thanks for the help :)

You can only carry 10 supply at a time, so you need to either use it to on a siege weapon, or put your supply into the keep (this one I dont know if its possible, but it should). If you have 10 supply you wont be able to carry more!

To build stuff you need to purchase blueprints from a vendor in game, then you have to put the blueprint somewhere and put supply in it, like quickfoot said you can only carry 10 supply at a time and that isn't enough to build a siege weapon or defensive structure so you have to walk several times or have others help you build it.

Ahh, okay.... that makes sense. Thanks!

I also read somewhere that you can buy waypoints for the keeps or something? Or build waypoints with supply? It would save a lot of time rather than having to keep respawning back at the main place. However, when I last played the game, I couldn't work out how I could go about doing that :/

There should be an NPC in the keep/tower/suply camp/castle that offers upgrades, these upgrades takes a gold cost and requires suply.

I had posted some videos on the basics of WvWvW, cost of upgrades/additions for Camps, Towers, and Stonemist (not Keeps), and how to easily get into WvWvW from where ever you are (mainly via through Lion's Arch and the Mist).

Here's a link to my Youtube Channel.


Look for the Borderlands Map Part 1, that explains WvWvW in general.

I have a specific video for upgrades/additions... and one on Lion's Arch/Mist Gate Travel Guide.

Watch out for the audio... may be bad.

There's this fantastic sticky in our WvW forum. There's also this old PvP compilation thread.
