ArenaNet has officially unveiled its new wardrobe system for Guild Wars 2, which will be added as part of the feature patch on April 15.
Currently players must use Transmutation Crystals and Stones to attach a skin to a piece of gear, but all that will be simplified under this new account-wide system. From now on, all armor and weapon skins will be placed in the wardrobe, which can be accessed from anywhere in the game word via the Hero panel. Once in the wardrobe players can select any skin that they have unlocked and apply it to an item with a Transmutation Charge.
“The Wardrobe tab is the home of our new simplified transmutation system. When you’re in the Wardrobe tab, you can select skins to apply to your weapons and armor to update your look without losing your awesome stat,” the developer explained. “You’ll be able to preview your look right there in your Hero Panel and click “Apply” once you’re satisfied with your look to lock in your changes with Transmutation Charges. It’s as simple as that!”
The game’s dye system will also become account-wide, now players can select a dye that is unlocked on any character and apply it using a Transmutation Charge. All changes can be previewed before being made permanent.
Players who have Transmutation Stones and Crystals in their inventory on April 15 will see them exchanged for Transmutation Charges at a three-to-one ratio for the former and a one-to-one ration for the latter.
