The Guild Vault is an inventory storage space available to a guild that has researched the Guild Stash upgrade in the architecture line. It can be increased to include as many as 250 slots. Guild members can open the vault by speaking to a Guild Banker or Guild Registrar in any city, or by activating a Vault Transport upgrade. In addition, the ability to deposit or withdraw from each section of the vault can be limited by adjusting the permissions of the relevant member ranks.

- At release, Guild Vaults were tied to a specific world:
- Cross-server guilds had to build vaults separately on each world using influence generated by members whose accounts belong to that world.
- As of the September 2014 Feature Pack, guilds are global and shared regardless of the world you are on. All merits, influence, and vaults were merged and are now shared across worlds.
- ArenaNet cannot replace items or wealth lost from a guild bank.
- This feature is locked for free accounts.
