The Guardian Games have returned and it's time to see which class is the best. How do we do that? With an unnecessarily complex system based around multiple currencies and tracking activities like the weather!

Contender Cards are a special type of bounty or mini-quest from Eva Levante which are available for the duration of the 2022 Guardian Games. They are purchased using the Laurels earned from ability kills. Each card has a random objective associated with each activity that must be completed within 24 hours. Completing a Base Contender Card will award a Gold Medallion and completing a Platinum Contender Card will award a Platinum Medallion. Earning and banking these medallions at the Podium in the Tower is the core concept behind Guardian Games.
