The 2023 Guardian Games Armor: Season 20
Get ready to don the Aspiring Challenger, Resolute Champion, and Enduring Conqueror armor sets for Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans, respectively. These stunning sets are designed to make your Guardian shine on the battlefield and showcase your dedication to the Games.
It’s important to note that these sets are actually ornaments, lacking intrinsic perks like the Iron Banner sets. As ornaments, you can easily apply them to your current armor without the need for transmogrification.
How to Obtain the Guardian Games Armor Set: Bright Dust
Unlike armor sets that drop from specific activities, Guardian Games ornaments can only be purchased at the Eververse store using either Silver or Bright Dust. Each set will cost you 6,000 Bright Dust, which is the standard price for all seasonal events.
If you have enough Bright Dust saved up or manage to play smart during the event, you could acquire any Guardian Games ornament for free. However, if you find yourself running low on Bright Dust, prioritize completing all the weekly Guardian Games bounties available at Eva Levante’s. These bounties will become accessible as soon as the event commences.

How to Enter Guardian Games 2023
Participating in the Guardian Games event is as simple as paying a visit to Eva Levante at the Tower once the event becomes available.

Don’t worry if you’re new to the event; Guardian Games is designed to be straightforward, and Eva’s quest does an excellent job of explaining the various mechanics.
