2023 Guardian Games armor: Season 20
This year, Guardian Games will feature the Aspiring Challenger, Resolute Champion, and Enduring Conqueror armor sets for Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans, respectively:
For the record, this is not an armor set but an ornament. This means it won’t feature an intrinsic perk as the Iron Banner sets do, for example. However, as an ornament, you’ll be able to use it on your current armor without having to use transmog.
How to get the Guardian Games armor set: Bight Dust
Unlike armor sets that drop from specific activities, Guardian Games ornaments can only be purchased at the Eververse store with either Silver or Bright Dust.
- Each set costs 6,000 Bright Dust: This is exactly the same cost as for all seasonal events.
If you play your cards right and have enough Bright Dust saved up, you can get any Guardian Games ornament for free. If you are currently very low on Bright Dust, prioritize completing all the weekly Guardian Games bounties available at Eva Levante’s. These will become available as soon as the event starts.

How to enter Guardian Games 2023
To enter the Guardian Games event, you simply need to visit Eva Levante at the Tower once the event becomes available. She will provide you with a quest and, eventually, your Class item, which will play a central role throughout the event. If you’re new, don’t worry, Guardian Games is a straightforward event, and Eva’s quest does a good job explaining the different mechanics.
Guardian Games is a free yearly event that is open to all players. Originally launched in 2020, Guardian Games continues to evolve, featuring more and better activities and mechanics each year. This time around, Guardian Games will feature both PvE and PvP exclusive game modes, meaning it has something to offer for everyone.
