Talk:Shared Inventory Slot

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

this is where you put the shared bag? ... nope, on looking further, it's not a bag slot. it's a SINGLE SLOT. I did not think anyone could be that greedy, this should be where you put the BAG for sharing stuff. 400 gems for a bag slot for one character. 600 gems for a bank tab. 700 gems for a shared BAG slot seems fair, but, this.... whoever came up with this should be ashamed of themselves. and they are not getting ANY money until it allows the placing of a bag in it. a fully accessible bag.

I don't think the purpose of this page is to discuss the item itself, but I totally agree. The only way this could be of any value is if all bag slots are unlocked and hold the largest size bags and all bank tabs are unlocked and materials stack sizes are maxed and all inventory slots are full. Frankly, if you're that much of a packrat, what you need is not additional single inventory slots at nearly twice the cost of a bag slot, but assistance to overcome your hoarding disorder. 16:52, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Soulbound vs soulbindable[edit]

The wiki says that "They do not accept soulbound items", but actually, the description of the shared inventory slot (when you hover over it in the inventory screen) says "These slots cannot contain items that soulbind".

This means that even if an item (weapon or armour) isnt already soulbound, if it can be soulbound, it's still rejected. Its why my non-soulbound, non-account-bound weapons and armour arent allowed in there either. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) at 10:58, January 14, 2016 (UTC).

Fair enough. I've rephrased the statement. Thank you for your input. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 11:08, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Shared Inventory Slots and Infinite Gathering Tools[edit]

Is this a place you can put account bound gathering tools into? Are the tools usable from the slot, or do you have to move them into being equipped first? If you have to equip them, do you then presumably need to move them back to the shared slot? --Elbee (talk) 12:23, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

To answer your first question: yes, you can, however, as with all gathering tools, you need to have them equipped in order to be able to use them. As for your last statement, I believe you are correct.
On an unrelated side note, new paragraphs are positioned at the bottom of the page. User Incarnazeus Signature.pngtalk 12:37, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Initially gathering tools had to be dragged from the shared slots to the gathering slots on the hero screen. This was changed so a double click on the tool in the shared slot equip the active character. If the character already had a tool equipped, it will swap places with the one in the shared slot. This makes it easy to transfer the infinite set between characters and the shared inventory slots. Separ (talk) 15:33, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Normal price vs sale price shared inventory slots[edit]

Regular price of shared inventory slots is 1 for 700, 3 for 1890 and 5 for 2800. I tried to edit but couldn't figure out how to do so (sorry). This is important to get right, since the sale history and sales are only ever talked about as percentages based on regular price. So right now it's easy to get a false impression.

Thank you for noticing, I fixed the prices. ~Sime 22:19, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Noticed in today's sale, the 'regular' prices are listed as 700, 2100, 3500. Pretty big mark-up from the original 1890 and 2800. This better not be the start of following retailer practices of marking up regular prices and then claiming sales are larger than they really are. --Dracx (talk) 16:40, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

This isn't new, they've done it before. The "normal" price advertised during the sale is the cost of you were to but they number of slots at the single price. It's still a 30% savings (roughly?) if you compare the sale (13xx) and "normal" non sale (1890) prices. Wolf Sabian (talk) 19:48, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

Max number of shared slots has been increased to 28[edit]

Just noticed in the GEM Store that I can purchased 3 more shared slots for a max total of 28 shared slots. Dbaggins (talk)

Thanks, I've updated the page. --BuffsEverywhere (talk) 04:54, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

Is it possible to change this section to make it clear that account that have bought what is now standard edition PoF (which incl. HoT) will show how much that are left in Gem Store before one reaches 28 Shard Inventory Slot as maximum? Meaning that player that enter game later will have same access to max. number of Shared Inventory slots as those that got this from each purchase of Expansion? Right now in wiki it looks you will missing out on three Shared Inventory slot (one for each expansion) which is incorrect.

I checked on my 7 year old account in Gem Store (all expansion came with one SI slot as part of purchase) where I now have left 8 SI (making it a total of 28) that I can buy from GS (small text showing it is possible to buy up to 8 SI). On my newer account which included HoT (meaning one less SI from purchase of expansion) it now show that I have only left 5 SI in GS to get 28 Shared Inventory.

Reading wiki about this it seem not to be explaining it very clearly that independent of purchase (expansion which add one SI) and GS purchase that maximum 28 Shared Inventory slot will be what everybody will have access to at time of writing this (as it might change in the future). In short later player that buy this game and its expansion will not miss out on anything as for Shared Inventory slots. ShadowCatz.8437 (talk) 14:26, 15 November 2022 (UTC)ShadowCatz.8437

Feedback 2022/11/15 about maximum Shared Slot for each account[edit]

Independent of method to purchase more Shared Inventory slot through buying one or more expansion pack which have one Shared Inventory slot included as part of purchase. Potential buyers of Shared Inventory slots will still have the oppertunity to get a maximum of 28 Shared Inventory slots on each account. This can be seen when one look in Gem Store for Shared Inventory slots where a small text notification will tell how many Shared Inventory slots that can still be bought for that account. --ShadowCatz.8437 (talk) 14:37, 15 November 2022 (UTC)ShadowCatz.8347

Feedback 2023/02/07 Noticed possible cap change[edit]

I bought each expansion separately, and seem to have been capped out at 20 slots purchased, not 25 (i have 23 lots total). Not sure if this is some bug or if they reduced the amount you can get total now. --Matt The Demon.6891 (talk) 2:09, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Matt The Demon.6891
