Guild Wars: Eye of the North - interview

Think of Polymock as Guild Wars’ answer to Pokemon. This Asura minigame starts you off with three miniature monsters that you’ll have to use to challenge computer controlled opponents. Your first three creatures will be a Gargoyle with Air Elementalist lightning attacks, a Mergoyle Mesmer with a talent for hexes, and a Skale, who comes equipped with some icy Necromancer spells.

The skills of some minions are more effective against others, so choosing the order in which they fight will become increasingly important as you progress through Polymock fights. If you can defeat all three of your opponent’s pieces you win the match.

Expect to find at least 18 Polymock pieces of varying rarities throughout the game.

If there’s one thing to say about Eye of the North’s new race, the Norn, it’s that they like to fight. A lot. You’ll need to beat down quest giving field NPCs that transform into giant bears before they even give you the time of day. So it seems fitting that the Norn’s minigame will be a 1 vs 1 Arena that will pit you against characters from previous campaigns. It’s really a combination of our two favorite things: nostalgia and violence.
