It’s time for a celebration! No, not the Guild Wars 2 1-year anniversary (although that’s also happening next month), but the Queen’s Jubilee! The Wallet has been invented in Tyria, and boy – it’s a real convenience! You can literally store each and every currency in game in it, freeing up space for your characters and bank account. Other features include: PvP Solo Queue, reworked rewards for Dungeons and Champions, a mini-game rotation system, improved effects level of detail system, WvW supply mastery and permanent finishers!
