New To Raids?

Want to Learn? Check out these communities to see where you can begin


We are Raiders in Training [NA], a raid training Discord community that focuses on allowing new raiders to learn at their own pace, and giving them the opportunities to learn with relaxed and friendly members.

Our training system focuses on teaching bosses on a wing-by-wing basis, where players are welcome to choose the wings they want to focus on learning.

We also provide recommended difficulty scales and guides to assist new players in tackling the varying skill levels of each wing encounter.

RiT aims to form a friendly and accessible community that encourages members to group up together, and practice on wings they have yet to master, so feel free to hop in and join us!


Guild Wars 2 Raid Academy [NA] is a raid training Discord community that has been operating since June 2017. Our main objective is to offer a non-judgmental environment for new and more experienced players to grow, share, and acquire the needed knowledge to perform well.

Members are encouraged to learn wings and bosses at their own pace, either with scheduled runs led by our Instructors or through impromptu runs our community organizes. Our friendly Mentors on staff are available to help you learn the fundamentals of your profession, analyze your rotation, or answer specific questions you may have through 1-on-1 sessions.

We hope you'll join our welcoming community on your path to becoming a legendary raider!

[RTI] Raid Training Initiative is an EU Guild Wars 2 raiding guild. We are a very friendly community that has been around since February 2016 with more than three hundred active players at any given time.

We know that breaking the raid entry barrier without guidance is super hard and frustrating, especially if you don't have a guild or friends to help you out, but you don’t need to give up. If you have the will to get better, we have the players with patience to help you out.

Above all, respect is very important to us, so we try to have our communication channels clear from toxicity, shaming, sexism, racism, and so on... Being a good guildmate promotes a healthy environment! A healthy environment leads to trust, and trust is the foundation of a working community. If what you read above is what you are looking for, you can join our communication channels and Apply to the guild!
