Structure upgrade

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Disambig icon.png This article is about a function in WvW. For upgrading gear, see Upgrade component.

In WvW, any player can order an upgrade to a structure (resource camp, tower, keep or Stonemist Castle), by talking to the Quartermaster, who is usually standing by the supply depot of that structure. The upgrades cost coin, supply (Supply.png) and sometimes karma as well. Upgrades need to be made following a certain order, by tier, and supply needs to be available in the supply depot of that structure, otherwise the upgrade cannot be ordered.

A supply depot is simply that structure's stock of supply, and every structure has one. Except for resource camps, which generate the supply themselves, a structure's depot is regularly supplied by dolyaks who transport small quantities of supply from the resource camps to the different nearby structures. When enough supply is available in the supply depot, the upgrade order can be made, and the local worker will start gradually upgrading the structure. Completed upgrades increase the total amount of supply a structure's supply depot can hold.

The upgrade will therefore take time, and can be accelerated by hiring a second worker. A shortage of supply at the local depot will also stall the upgrade until more supply arrives. It is therefore important to ensure that nearby allied resource camps are available, and that allied dolyaks are able to safely make their journey to the structures being upgraded. It is also possible to double the amount of supply which dolyaks deliver to each structure, and to hire guards to protect them in their journeys across the map.

Since players can take their share of supply from a structure's supply depot, it is generally recommended not to reduce a depot's supply when the structure is in need of a speedy upgrade.
