Guild Wars 2 September Feature Pack to add Global Guilds

ArenaNet has announced that Guild Wars 2‘s September Feature Pack will improve the megaserver system by adding Global Guilds.

The system is already available in China, but come September North America and European guilds will also be able to take advantage of this new feature. Basically, instead of having a separate guild chapter for each server, everything, including the guild bank, merits, influence, and upgrades, will be shared across all servers.

The influence and merits earned by each separate chapter will be combined, and the merit cap of 250 will be temporarily increased to ensure that nothing is lost during the transition. However, more merits cannot be earned until it goes back below 250. Also, any upgrade unlocked will be available in the global guild, and those that have been unlocked on multiple servers will have their cost refunded.

Finally, the guild vault that had the highest number of slots before the merge will become the new main global guild vault. Any additional items that don;t fit in these slots will be granted temporary slots that will disappear once the item is withdrawn to ensure that no items are lost in the merge.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
