Build and Equipment Templates[edit]

Equipment Templates[edit]

  • Players can now make use of Equipment Templates, which enable players to switch between full sets of equipment at the press of a button.
  • Equipment Templates can be found within the Equipment tab of the Hero panel.
  • Each character will start with two Equipment Template tabs. Up to four additional tabs can be purchased in the Black Lion Trading Company Gem Store, giving players the choice to have as many as six tabs.
  • For more information about Equipment Templates, please read through our helpful guide and watch the related tutorial videos.

Linked Equipment[edit]

  • Items can be equipped in more than one Equipment Template.
  • Items that have been equipped in at least one template will display a link in the upper-left corner of their icon.
  • Players can customize their legendary equipment with a different set of selected attributes in each Equipment Template.
  • Legendary upgrades can also be customized separately in each Equipment Template.

  • Each character will start with three Build Template tabs. Up to three additional tabs can be purchased in the Black Lion Trading Company Gem Store, giving players the choice to have as many as six tabs.

Build Storage[edit]

Build Links[edit]

  • Build Templates can be shared as chat links with other players.
  • Builds can be shared between players of any level, making it a great way to help out new players!
  • If a player shares a chat link containing a build with the same profession of the character you're playing, you can apply it directly to a Build Template and use it right away.
  • Links to builds for professions that you are not currently using can be copied into Build Storage for you to use later.
  • Chat links can be copied into or out of Guild Wars 2.

Build Inspection[edit]

  • A new panel has been added to the game that allows players to view the details of a build without using a Build Storage Space or Build Templates.
  • Players can inspect builds that are from Build Storage, from one of their own Build Templates, or from shared chat links.
  • The Inspect panel can be opened by clicking on a build chat link or by right-clicking on a Build Template or Stored Build in your Hero panel.
  • From the Inspect panel, you can copy the viewed build to your clipboard, store a copy in Build Storage, or apply it directly to a Build Template if you share the same profession.
