Home instance

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The home instance is an instanced area within a character's home city based on race, which evolves as they progress through the world.

A character's home instance will change based on their progress and actions in their personal story. For example, character actions could determine the presence or absence of non-player characters, special merchants or even buildings.

Players can invite others to visit their home instance. If a character visits a home instance in a city other than their home city (for example, a charr visiting Salma District), they will see a basic version of the district without any story-related changes.
