If you use gold, it's actually not worth it, because the cost of gold is lower when they don't have discounts on since the gold to gems rate is better when there are no discounts on.

Why does this require a client download? I thought the gem store was handled at their end?

probably because these are the only two things that are purchased from the actual game interface rather than the gem store.

It might be a silent update tucked in somewhere or prepping for the the Feb 28th update. :P

I think you've nailed it right on the head here.

No hate, but these aren't exactly game update notes.

I would tend to agree, but this is how it was presented on the official forums.

I've updated the title to avoid any confusion that could come up ;)

If you already have 8 (eight) bank slots, do NOT buy an extra bank tab, because you cannot use it.
8 tabs is apparently the maximum amount of bank slots, and your bank tab extension will be USELESS.

Because I didn't know that 8 slots was the maximum amount of tabs one could have in the bank, the slot I bought could not be used and I hope it will be refunded.

How can anyone know that 8 tabs should be the maximum? Or else, one should be notified before buying the slot that you actually cannot use it, since your bank is already 'complete'.

You should get refunded, why they didn't just stop players buying anymore once they reach the cap of 8 bank slots I do not understand....thats what most games do when you reach a limit, the items grey's out or it tells you sorry you have reached the limit of that item.

Otherwise it's like saying, oh you didn't know? Oh you made a mistake too bad thanks for your money...

Sometimes Anet seem to like making extra work for themselves, im sure the support team just got very busy.

While I was logging in again I could see there is a reminder now that says the bank max is 8 slots. But I do not recall this reminder was there earlier. At least it isn't something one would usually read.

Therefore as a safeguard for people that only read headings and never the text in small font, the game mechanism should be such that it would not be possible to buy an upgrade if it cannot be used.

If you're buying gems at their current prices (with in-game currency) to take advantage of the sales, know that you fail at math and are actually paying much more than you would have before, or likely will after, the sale.
