  • Full accounts without or with expansion(s) begin with 5 usable character slots and free accounts begin with 2 usable character slots.
  • Prior to the pre-purchase announcement for Heart of Thorns, a single account could have up to 64 character slots.
    • After the release of Heart of Thorns, the limit was increased so that a single account could have up to 69 characters.[1]
If an account had the maximum number of character slots before purchasing the Deluxe or Ultimate edition of Heart of Thorns, Path of Fire, End of Dragons, Secrets of the Obscure, or Janthir Wilds, it's possible for it to have 70/71/72/73/74 character slots instead of 69.[2]


  • During 2012 beta testing, you could purchase up to three additional slots, for a total of eight.
