Dungeons may be for sale in a Guild Wars 2 near you soon and many are pondering just what it means. In a recent interview it was revealed that GW2 may sell dungeons, XP potions, and more in the GW2 store but nothing is confirmed. Is dungeons as DLC a good idea or are expansions much better for that type of content? Come to Ten Ton Hammer for our take and then share your opinions in our community forums.

The quote that sparked this revolution was located in this PC Gamer Interview.
