Black Lion Trading Company is selling character slots  at 600 gems each. Get yours now!

You have to thank me because i bought one 2 days ago and have a bet with my guildie that If i buy character slot it will surely go on sale the following days. and it did :P

Thanks for letting us know ;)

For me it's usually the other way around, there's a sale, I convince myself I don't need it - then the day after the sale ends, I suddenly feel that impulse to NEED it just now.

Out of money (luckily) otherwise I'd be doing the same!

Hmmm, I already have 8 characters.  I'm tempted to purchase an extra if and when they add a 9th profession.  Though I expect any new profession to accompany a major GW2 expansion that would require a standalone purchase and include an additional character slot.  A lot of speculation, I know.


I think I'll just wait and see and sit on my 600 gems. This only saves me 200 anyway if all this comes to fruition. ^_^

Not seeing the point, really.  Game's pretty unfriendly to it unless you want another mule.

Pretty awesome how you can increase demand at zero cost.
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

You can also park alts all over the world for various reasons; JP, nodes, world boss,etc.  However, Anet is making this game less alt friendly by the day.  The sale is kinda a joke.  It is like putting BLC keys for sale.  They are worthless also.  They need to sale increased stack size in the Gem Store.  That would make them some money.

No?

I don't understand most of you people.

A character slot is better bang for your buck for storage. Most of my "alts" are indeed storage. At 600gems that's the same price as a bank tab, but with max level bags I get double the storage space.

I have had 8 characters (1 of each Profession) since release, I enjoy all of them to varying degrees, so I find you with just 1 character to be hard to understand. :P  I also have 2 full time "Mules" and just picked up another slot for a third "Mule".  Between this and the 25 pack of BLC Keys I actually had a reason to fork over some cash for the first time in many months.

Yes, we need a gem node somewhere in Tyria that gives 3 gems a day using an Ori mining pick.  :)

I saw I had 600 gems left, so I was dubbing and pondering and hovering.  And finally pressed buy.  So, now I finally have my set complete.  3 of each armour class per race (was still missing a heavy armour sylvari).

And to the one that asked why?  Because I like alts.  And I don't feel like ANet is against altaholics.   In fact, I don't think they've separated them enough.  I would like most achievements to be character bound instead of account bound...
