Guild Wars 2 Champion Trains are no doubt contrary to the developer’s wishes on how Guild Wars 2 should be played. But from the players’ viewpoint, they’re a quick way to level characters, get nice loot, get karma, and get Daily and Monthly Achievements out of the way.
Below is a list of Champion Trains with waypoints. If you know of any that are NOT on this list, or have a correction, please comment below.
Queensdale Champion Train (Levels 1-17)
As of June 2014 all the Champions except the Champion Rotting Ancient Oakheart were changed to Veterans or Elites to discourage Champion Trains in starting zones.
