Head Start is the term given to certain bonuses offered to customers who pre-ordered Guild Wars Factions. Perks include:
- Access to Factions a day earlier than release.
- Two extra character slots that are usable for a period of 48 hours if you have added a Factions pre-order key to your Prophecies account. Subsequent to release, these will become inactive and deleted after 10 days unless a retail key is also added to the account.
- The special event Day of the Tengu, during which players may obtain the unique Tengu Masks.
