Guild Wars 2’s build and equipment templates are coming on October 29

Don't forget to save!


Earlier this year when ArenaNet was doing damage control following the layoffs, one of the most exciting pieces of news about the future of Guild Wars 2 was confirmation that build and equipment templates would finally be coming to the game. That time is almost here, as the studio confirmed an October 29th release date for this patch.

To prepare players for this, ArenaNet posted a dev blog about how this new system will work. “A character’s combat customization is split into two parts,” the studio said. “The first is your choice of utility skills, specializations, and major trait choices. The second is your choice of equipment, along with any attribute choices and upgrades. The system we developed reflects this, giving you access to two separate types of templates: build templates and equipment templates.”

It should be noted that PvP won’t be getting build or equipment templates when this is rolled out, as ArenaNet is still working on that.

The separation of these two template types will allow players to tinker with more flexibility than if they were fused together. One cool thing players will be able to do is to save and share their templates with others, even “to your enemies to boast of your superior build.” I guess I should be preparing myself for a lot of emails in the near future, then.
