The theme of this year’s magazine is Tyria in Flux; an exploration of volatile magic and the Living World. Inside the magazine you’ll find a range of content including artwork, fiction, fashion and editorials produced by our talented team of writers and members from the Guild Wars 2 community.
As always, we’re partnering with a range of content creators to produce a magazine that’s truly made by the community and something worth owning. On top of this, we’re also donating $5 for each pre-order to our chosen charity: World Child Cancer.

This Year’s CharityWorld Child Cancer is a charity very close to our hearts. They work to give children in developing countries who suffer with cancer a better chance of survival and support the families of those affected. One of our writers, Fearan, knows what this feels like all too well; click to read her story. The work undertaken by World Child Cancer is vital in minimizing the discrepancy between cancer survival rates in developing and developed countries. By twinning hospitals and healthcare professionals in resource-rich countries with those with more limited resources, the charity aims to improve the quality of care available to children with cancer regardless of where they’re born in the world. There are currently 9 programs spanning Africa, Asia and Central America. Every copy sold of the GuildMag Annual 2018 will see $5 donated directly to World Child Cancer.
