ok, thats 2 more to get for me, haha.... yes i'm altoholic
i love making themed characters, instead of always doing same boring farms (speedclears arent my things, as i'm way too slow for it), plus storage enough that way

i didnt see any notice from anet btw, did i miss that?

Yeah I think that is just a "guess" someone posted on the wiki based on the story in this thread. Nothing official other than someone named "Lance" at anet told someone here that was all that was allowed. He's just an employee and may be misinformed for all we know. Nothing in general from anyone actually in charge at anet.

I wish wiki would wait for "official" word and not based on some bored rep at the bottom of the food change replying to one individual. Because I can NOT tell you the number of times I've gotten wrong info back from support people in all areas/companies over the years.

You have about a 50/50 chance of getting a correct reply from any of these people. Then you have to start working up the food chain. Unfortunately anet doesn't really have anyone in charge of GW1 anymore.

I am the op and this is my story. I own all campaigns plus just about all of the upgrades and the NF presale. In manage access keys scroll down until you see 00 Additional Character Slots. My number is 26 and I am unable to add more, when I tried I got an error message "You can not add this access key to your Guild Wars account because you will already have the rights this key provides. Please click the cancel button and create a new account." I have 28 slots 2+26. My second account which only has the 3 campaigns and no upgrades it has 16 slots and says 14 additional slots 2+14.

I guess the only quest left to ask of those that own more that 28 slots is when did they purchase their last slot.

^ More than a year ago. Lots of people I know in game have 34 slots too. Again, I started with 6 given by Trilogy so I bought 28 more over the years here and there.

I feel sorry for you getting screwed like this. makes no sense at all. You would think anet would want to sell more slots, not less. And the game can handle 34 character slots for lots of us just fine.

I think it is a mistake just like the costumes that are not in the store....and since no one cares to fix it, well, its anets loss since there are folks that would buy them if they were available--

Nothing has changed.........

8 Default + 1 from Nightfall Pre Order + 26 Purchased = 35


Seems to be a lot of confusion in this thread and I don't know why.

That is the correct amount of additional character slots you can get.

except that now if you check there are only 2 default not 8, so yes, something DID change.
(and yes I checked on my accounts--all have ONLY 2 default + ...6 for the basic accounts--ones that have all three chapters and eye and no purchased slots-- and 33 for the one with 35 slots, see attached screenshot)

weird is it says "28 character slots is the maximum amount of slots you can have on your account." not "28 additional character slots"

this is dumb
glad i can keep my 35 slots..... idiot anet, better fix this or you'll lose even more people

anet isnt really in a position to reduce stuff in GW, unless they dont care about losing customers and get way less customers in GW2 (which i dont care about either, as long as GW1 keeps working)

lets find out what they'll do..... or IF they do anything about it

anet, AT LEAST leave a message about this
too bad for you, but this month (and not any other month, until they said/fixed something about this mess) i'm not gonna risk buying 2 char slots having a big chance not being able to add them to my full account

i'll keep playing as it is then, no more money anet, especially since you even removed some costume(s)

EDIT:
by the way, if we had the INGAME store, we could check out if we would be able to buy more slots BEFORE accepting them, but since they made that other store, we can buy it, but AFTER that we have to choose on what account we can put it on

so if you buy a char slot now, you get a code before reaching your account, and after that you see you cant add the code anymore

anet wake up, and watch out for your customers, or they will run away, and then your precious GW2 will lose alot too, cuz they dont trust you anymore

so anet, wake up and give us the info we need and want about this

I edited the wiki. Obviously the old information is now wrong, so I posted an update. If i'm in error, we can always change it back again.

Remember the wiki is maintained by volunteers, not by ArenaNet.

Remember when each weekend they used to have a special on the guild wars store ? One weekend it would be storage slots. Next week would be half price costumes. Another week half priced skill unlock packs, etc, etc. When they stopped caring about doing the weekend deals it should have showed us all something about how they cared.
Hell, they broke the linking process for linking a gw1 to a gw2 account about 6 months ago again... this time they tell people they will not be fixing it. You have to contact support for them to manually link for you.

do they wanna lose GW and GW2 players (current or would-be)???

so you have to TELL them now?? whats next? "HoM no longer available for GW2??

when GW dies, GW2 wont have that much longer, they do know that, right?
i'm afraid the answer is "no, they have no idea whats going on"

can they at least bring innocent banned players back to GW before they completely lock the doors to the GW control system?

so anet, for you my new question: when are you going to give up on GW2 and everything else the old anet has made and achieved?

ps. i heard the GW2 support already sux balls, so a matter of time
