Currencies are used to buy goods and services from vendors and other players. The lower bar of the inventory panel displays two types of currency: coin and one other type that varies based on the location of the player.

The wallet is a section in the inventory that tracks currency for each account. It can be opened by clicking on the wallet icon in the lower-left corner of the inventory window. The wallet is shared by all characters on the account: currency earned by any character is automatically deposited into the wallet; currency spent by any character is automatically withdrawn from it.

Primary article: Token

Tokens are physical items that take up space in the inventory and are used to purchase items from certain vendors. Living World releases may include one or more types of tokens that are only available as drops for a limited time. Permanent tokens include Black Lion Claim Ticket Scraps that can be found in Black Lion Chests, and multi-use items, such as Karka Shells and Globs of Ectoplasm, used both as tokens and as crafting materials.

  • Coin can be exchanged for gems (and vice versa) on the Trading Post.
  • Currencies and other tokens can be indirectly converted to coin by using them to purchase items that can then be crafted, forged, or otherwise used to produce items that can be sold to vendors and/or on the trading post.
