Guide to Moa Racing

In this short guide, we provide you with all the details you need to know about Moa Racing.


Moa Racing is a new permanent addition to Guild Wars 2 that is located in Lion's Arch. Moa Racing allows a number of players to bet on any 5 Moa. The cost of a bet is 50 silver with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The outcome of race cannot be interfered with, as the Moa's will automatically run around the track once the race begins. You can choose to follow your Moa to watch the race unfold or you can wait at the finish line to see who has won. 

You can locate Moa Racing by traveling to Lion's Shadow Inn Waypoint, before heading south to the orange circle indicated on the image below). 

Placing a Bet

Once at Farshore Ward, you can locate Tigg at the top of the hill and indicated by a dragon icon above his head. Simply talk to Tigg and choose a Moa you wish to bet on. The cost is 50 silver and you can only bet on one Moa at a time. Please be aware that once you've placed a bet, you cannot leave the immediate area of your bet will be forfeit. Once all bets are placed, the count-down timer to the race will begin. 


With prizes for your Moa coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd the odds are relatively good for receiving at least 1 Race Track Voucher.

  • 1st Place: 7 Race Track Vouchers
  • 2nd Place: 3 Race Track Vouchers
  • 3rd Place: 1 Race Track Voucher

If your Moa does come in the top three you will be mailed your Race Track Vouchers which you can then spend with the NPC stood next to Tigg. The NPC offers four items in total:

  • Green Bag of Race Winnings - 5 Silver
  • Blue Bag of Race Winnings - 60 Silver
  • Red Bag of Race Winnings - 1g 40 Silver

The wiki says the small bag drops 20s, which makes more sense. Haven't bought one myself though.
