The latest developments in Guild Wars 2's
upcoming April feature pack will improve the quality of life around Tyria, as the game will be ending armor repair and sharing gear and WvW XP across accounts.
The team said that it feels as though the loss of time is enough of a death penalty that it will be removing the costs for armor repair
when the patch lands. Because this will take out a goldsink, the team is also reducing the coin dropped by champion loot bags.
Legendary gear, ascended items, and World vs. World XP will become account-bound
rather than character-bound come April as well. This means that players can character hop and retain their progression and expensive items instead of getting them individually.
