— In-game description

Shared Inventory Slot is an account upgrade that adds one extra shared slot to the inventory for all characters. Items in shared slots are available to all characters on the account at the same time, acting as a quick access version of a bank item slot.

Shared Inventory Slot is available from Gem store and bundled with expansions, and it is possible to own a maximum of 30 shared slots on the account.

Contained in[edit]


  • One slot comes bundled with Heart of Thorns, one with Path of Fire, one with End of Dragons, one with Secrets of the Obscure, and one with Janthir Wilds. These slots are initially filled with a Level-80 Boost. Consuming the boost will free up the slots.
    • If you receive Heart of Thorns free with Path of Fire, you do not get the shared inventory slot or the level 80 boost from Heart of Thorns, meaning you only get one boost and one slot, despite owning both expansions.
    • If you have multiple shared slots with the Level-80 Boost still unconsumed, you can stack the boosts with each other to free up the other slots. The stacked boosts cannot be removed from the last slot until they are all consumed.


  • The packs of 3/5 shared slots are delivered as 3 or 5 single-slot unlocks that can be consumed individually.


  • Shared Inventory Slots were introduced on January 12, 2016 in the Gem Store, with a limit of 5 slots per account.
  • The Spring 2016 Quarterly Update on April 19, 2016 added a free slot to accounts with Heart of Thorns unlocked, and raised the limit of purchasable slots to 10.
  • The limit for purchasable slots was further increased to 13 on July 12, 2016 [1], and to 16 on January 10, 2017.[2].
  • The August 01, 2017 update added a second free slot to accounts with Path of Fire unlocked, bringing the total available limit to 16 purchasable slots plus up to 2 free slots.
  • With the release of Path of Fire, the limit was raised by 3 purchasable slots, bringing the total available limit to 19 purchasable slots plus up to 2 free slots. [3]
  • On September 18, 2018, the limit was raised by 3 purchasable slots, to 22.[4]
  • With the release of End of Dragons, the limit was raised by 3 purchasable slots, bringing the total available limit to 25 purchasable slots plus up to 3 free slots.
  • Current bundles of Path of Fire with "Free Guild Wars: Heart of Thorns" only contain a single slot, limiting accounts to a total of 28. There appears to be no current way to gain access to the "missing" 29th slot.
  • The new max is 30 slots.
