One of the frustrating parts about MMOs can often be when your friends ignore your advice and start playing on a completely different server the one you’re on. Those jerks! Well, be angry no more as Guild Wars 2‘s ‘Guesting’ feature is launching on January 28, and will allow you to effectively just pop in to their servers and run around with them like normal… with a few restrictions.
For one, WvW is out — try to jump into some WvW and you’ll be booted back to your own server. And for another, guesting only works within the same region, so if you’re on a European server you can’t guest onto a North American server. You can also only guest on up to two worlds at a time: each time you guest on a world, that becomes one of your eligible guesting worlds for the next 24 hours. Once those 24 hours have passed, you can guest on a different server.
As a result of guesting becoming active, free world transfers will cease to operate. “Make sure that you will be on the world you intend to play on before January 28th,” writes ArenaNet, “because after that date, you’ll have to pay a gem fee to transfer worlds.”
