The Guild Wars 2 Team is pleased to announce that from June 17 onward, you’ll be able to buy custom arenas with gold instead of gems!
We have always seen custom Arenas as an important tool for bringing the PvP community together. This change will make it much easier for groups of players to pool their resources and work together to create and maintain a custom arena.
In the Heart of the Mists, you’ll find a new vendor called The Arena Vendor who will offer custom arena starter kits for 200 gold and time tokens for 2 gold.
Remember that you can use a custom arena time token on any custom arena that you are playing in, regardless of who owns that arena. If there’s a custom arena that you really enjoy or call home, you can support that arena and its owner by adding time to it!
