Daily Tip:Each of the 5 playable races in Guild Wars 2 will have a unique starting area

Account-Bound World XP Coming to Guild Wars 2

Posted Mon, Dec 02, 2013 by Martuk

Leveling up your Guild Wars 2 (GW2) alts for WvW combat is about to get a lot easier. According to a recent blog from GW2 Content Designer Devon Carver, ArenaNet will be making a change to World XP in the future that will make it account-based, sharing it between all of the characters on an account. This will allow players to continue earning ranks and on any character with the benefit of advancing them all.

Here’s how it works according to Carver’s blog:

  • All earned World XP on an account will be put into a single pool.
  • The sum of those points will determine the world rank and World Ability Points available to each character on the account.
  • World Ability Points can be allocated differently on each character; you are not creating a single, account-based, version of your characters.

The new changes will soon be headed to the test server, so there is currently no ETA on when it may release.
