Shared Inventory Slot
From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
— In-game description
|Gem Store||–||3 / 1,890|
|Gem Store||–||5 / 2,800|
- One slot comes bundled with Heart of Thorns and another with Path of Fire. These slots are initially filled with a Level-80 Boost. Consuming the boost will free up the slot.
- The shared slots can be moved either above all regular bag slots, or below them. This is done by dragging the slot, much like you would with a bag.
- The slot is not a bag slot, and does not allow additional bags to be equipped.
- Vendors and the Trading Post will ignore items in these slots, as will "Deposit all Materials".
- Items that soulbind or are already soulbound cannot be placed here.
- The slots can hold all other items, making it especially useful for salvage kits, gathering tools, gizmos, non-wallet keys, or consumables you want an easy access to on multiple characters across your account, such as the Copper-Fed Salvage-o-Matic, Royal Terrace Pass, Bank Access Expresses, or Mystic Forge Conduits.
- Currently, an account can have a maximum of 21 shared slots:
- The packs of 3/5 shared slots are delivered as 3 or 5 single-slot unlocks that can be consumed individually.
