Big changes coming to GW2 in 15th April patch

Hi everyone,

There’s a large feature pack being released on the 15th April, featuring major changes to:

  • Traits – trait points & how they’re earned is changing, trait unlocking is changing, new traits are being added.
  • Dyes – now account bound. Any dyes that you have on more than one character will get you a new unid’d dye for each duplicate as recompense.
  • An armor/weapons wardrobe system (which allows you amongst other things to create a legendary once and then have that for each character on your account).
  • Critical Damage system is being changed.
  • Changes to sigils, their activations & cooldowns, two handed weapons will be able to have 2 sigils.
  • Some changes to runes
  • Some changes to LFG & guild window.
  • Further as-yet undisclosed changes.

The page collating this information is on the GW2 site here, and they’ve been releasing information a bit at a time, so you may want to keep an eye on it over the next week.

    New information that’s worth highlighting:

    • In the upcoming April feature build, we will be converting all legendary and ascended equipment to be account-based. This means ascended equipment will always remain account-bound and will not soulbind to a character when equipped. Legendary weapons will continue to be tradeable until equipped, at which point they will become account-bound (rather than soulbound). As part of this change, we will convert all the existing ascended and legendary equipment that is soulbound to be account-bound instead.
