Introducing The Wallet

by Rob Thody on August 7, 2013

Greetings adventurers! My name is Rob Thody and I am a QA lead and project coordinator of the Guild Wars 2 Live Response Team. On this development team we primarily spend time with fixing bugs and implementing quality of life features. With the help of both external and internal feedback, we selected the project for our first August launch; a tool that we hope will help make things a bit easier and convenient for players.

Allow me to introduce to you… the wallet!

The Problem

Inventory management can be a tedious and time consuming part of playing almost any MMO. For many of you, tokens and badges and currencies were all separated across your different characters.

The Guild Wars 2 Live Response Team decided that it was time for a change when it came to the various tokens and badges clogging up your inventory bags. Wouldn’t it be nice if they all existed in one location, shared amongst all the characters on your account?

The Solution

The wallet! One place for all of your Badges of Honor, dungeon tokens, coins, karma, gems, and laurels, and more. More importantly, everything existing on the wallet will be bound to your account. That means that the sum of all gold, karma, tokens, etc. across all your characters will all be dumped into this wallet and shared across all your characters.

What if you get an Ascalonian Tear on your ranger but want to spend it on your warrior? No problem – now that will be possible!

What if you have 10 gold on you mesmer, and 4 gold on your thief? Once you log in, your currencies wallet will show 14 gold – the sum of the gold on your account!

How to Share Currencies Among Characters

So here’s the important thing: in order to share all these currencies among the characters on your account, you’ll need to log in to each of your characters individually in order for their currency to roll into the wallet.

What’s in the Wallet?

Here’s a breakdown of the currencies that will be added to the wallet, which will now all be account bound:

  • Gems
  • Coins
  • Karma
  • Laurels
  • Glory
  • Badges of Honor
  • Fractal Relics
  • Guild Commendations
  • Ascalonian Tears
  • Seals of Beetletun
  • Deadly Blooms
  • Manifestos of the Moletariate
  • Flame Legion Charr Carvings
  • Symbols of Koda
  • Knowledge Crystals
  • Shards of Zhaitan

We hope the wallet makes life a little easier for you and all your characters. Happy hunting!
