    Lightbulb GW2: a lot of storage - without cash-shop

    Some people think that buying "storage space" in the shop is the only option to have access to a lot of storage.
    take a look at this:


    1. Create a guild "1"
    Quote Originally Posted by GW2-Wiki

    2. Gain influence

    A Guild Promoter is a type of vendor who sells influence points for your Guild in exchange for coins.
    Levels of influence purchased:


    • Toast to the Guild - For the cost of a few drinks we'll toast your guild and increase the guilds influence by 10 points. Cost: 10
    • Drinks on the House - Purchase drinks for the nearby villagers, compliments of your guild. This will increase the guilds influence by 100 points. Cost: 1
    • Drinks for the City - Enough alcohol to share with the entire city. A night of celebration of everyones favorite guild. This will increase your guilds influence by 1,000 points. Cost: 10
    • Drinks for a Week! - The citizens of the surrounding area wont soon forget your guilds generosity as you host a week of revelry and celebrate your achievements. Increases the guilds influence by 10,000 points. Cost: 100
    -) earn it by participating in events, pvp or solo content (which I do anyway)
    -) pay 10 Gold for 1000 points influence = 50 slots storage


    3. Unlock the Guild storage
    Quote Originally Posted by GW2-Wiki
    Guild storage is unlocked through spending influence on architecture upgrades. There are three tiers of guild storage for a total of up to 250 item slots:

    • Guild Stash – 50 slots
    • Guild Treasure Trove – additional 100 slots
    • Deep Cave – additional 100 slots
    Once guild storage has been built, players who have the appropriate rank in their guild can access it by speaking with a guild banker NPC.






    4. Conclusion 1: You can unlock 250 storage slots yourself without having to spend real money.


    5. Ask a friend / friends to do the same and work together:

    6. Create a guild "2"... +250 storage slots = 500 storage slots
    7. Create a guild "3"... +250 storage slots = 750 storage slots
    ...

    Note: you can only lead one guild (as far as I know), so you need friends for more than +250 slots. You can still join as many guilds as you like!

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    I wonder if guild bank alts are feasible. Because a Guild GM cannot be in another guild, so I wonder if that works across the entire account.

    Rly? I didn't know that. Big shame. I thought it was you can't be GM of more than 1 guild and I want to belong to at least 3 I think.

    Shucks......there go my plans for an asura only guild aimed at world domination then.

    interesting and useful as I'm an unabashed packrat. I had 2 dedicated bank alts and 3 tabs of a Gbank stuffed when I quit WoW at last. Not sure how much of this will be neaded though. 90% of what my bank toons normaly hold is crafting materials with the rest being oddball turnins in case a new alt needed them. If they add the rare crafting items to the colectable tab I'll probably never need more than 1 bank slot anyway. Still I'm planing on maxing out my accounts bank tabs over time anyway, either direct buy or gold>gems

    Who is John Galt?

    Also a confirmed packrat, as is my better half.

    Between us, 3 guild banks full of stuff in WoW when we called that game quits.

    We planned ahead for GW2, and already have a third account ready to set up that will be our new communal "bankers guild"

    I joined a guild, then I created my own guild and I can swap between the two however much as I like. I haven't earned that much influence on my own guild yet so I haven't checked if that part works, but there's no reason why it shouldn't.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Just an FYI, in order to buy the guild stash you need arch level 2. To buy the treasure trove you need arch level 3. Arch level 2 costs 1000 points. So to get that you need 2500 influence which takes a bit unless you have a lot of players in the guild or level your char high. I got 2000 points for my guild at around level 50 by contributing to the guild and I got an item from my personal story around there.

    Arch level 3 costs 5000 influence so you're talking about 7500+ to get that second part.

    You also only gain influence for the guild you're representing so if you and 2 buddies want to spend 2 months doing this for the extra bank slots I'm sure it'll work, otherwise it seems like farming silver to buy gems to buy bank slots would be far easier.

    Edit: Sorry math is off. It'd be 2000 for arch 1(500), arch 2(1000), guild stash (500). It'd be that 2000+arch 3(5000)+treasure trove(5000) for the next section.

    Would like to add a tip. If you are in a guild by yourself and are trying to get guild bank space. Create as many alts as you can and have them all represent the guild. And each time you play just log in each character for a few seconds (even if you don't intend on doing anything else with them). Each character log in will get you 10 influence points for a total of 50 a day.

    I've been doing that Red but it's very hit&miss whether it registers the log in.
    I log in to 7 toons a day for this very reason but normally only get 1or 2 'hits'.
    They all represent btw.

    Yeah I have noticed that. I think each log in is counted, it's just that the server has cycles that I haven't figured out yet. So, I'll log in all my characters and maybe two will get counted after a few minutes. Then in six hours I'll log in all five again and it won't show any update for credit. But after another amount of time it will show credit for eight log ins in that period.

    It's very haphazzard
