    Character Slots Revealed!

    As of the Press Beta event, there are 5 slots - assuming one for each race!

    I was expecting 4, but got 5 (assuming this won't change)

    Are you guys happy with 5? Happy to pay more? What do you guys think?

    Was hoping for 8 slots, for each profession, but meh, they will probably sell character slots for a reasonable price in the Guild Wars 2 Store.

    Though I will probably only have 2 characters in the beginning, and ArenaNet are worth the money by selling character slots, since there is no monthly fee, and the game looks amazing and promising, I won't whine about buying some extra slots.

    Hoping that extra slots don't cost too much.

    1 for each race is ok for me. I'll just buy the maximum number as well though. Ultimately I'll want to play every profession.

    8?! I think that's too much. I think it will be one of their bigger incomes via the store. And I doubt they'll cost much like you said

    I think 5 is great

    Much hatred for Anet; this decision of five. For all the professions at max do I strive.

    Should've been 8 really but 5 will do.

    Well I planned around 5. Will be more than enough for me: mesmer, necromancer and elementalist assured. Two last spots will be engineer and ranger. Guardian and warrior, nah... not for me anyway. Perfect really, even though I'm not much of an alt player... but I will be able to pvp and try out the interesting professions and thats great

    5 is enough IMO, I won't be buying an extra slot for a long time (at least a year) as I tend to progress slowly on my characters.

    Asura Engineer (Main)
    Norn Ranger (Primary Alt)
    Sylvari Mesmer
    Human Thief
    Charr Warrior

    You are a psychic! :P Nah but really, I see what you mean. I'll be sticking with my Warrior through thick and thin with maybe a Thief alt. Them 2 I will play a lot but as for my other 3?

    - Elementalist
    - Guardian
    - Ranger

    Right now I am taking solace in ignorance. I will no doubt be buying more to have 8. So hopefully the slots will be less than $5, but that will never happen. Also if they don't have birthday presents well... then...

    Haha! I can't see them being too expensive. I would guess $2.50 or perhaps $2.99 per slot

    The only reason I am really upset about this is because they were 9.99 in GW1, if they are that much in this one I'll be paying around $110 for the game assuming CE isn't more than 80 DX
