Wow, it’s been four years since the launch of Guild Wars. A lot can change in that amount of time. Did you buy a new car? Did you get married? Did you move to a new home? Did you get a new job? Even if life is not that different for you outside the game, the anniversary party brings plenty of changes to the world of Guild Wars.
For starters, I was surprised by the Extreme Makeover option. For $9.99 you can change your character’s body features — including gender. A less radical option is the Makeover Pack. That let’s you change body size, hair color, hair style, facial hair and skin color. Basically, it’s just like the Extreme Makeover pack but without gender changes. If you’re not interested in changing your character’s gender, the regular Makeover Pack is a more economical choice. For $9.99 you can get five regular makeover credits, opposed to just the one Extreme Makeover.
I’m surprised that “profession” was not included with the extreme makeover.
With a new look, you might need a new name. For $14.95 you can rename your character. The new changes seem to be a bit of a money grab, but that’s important to keep the game alive and healthy.
There are more changes with the anniversary update. The official website has more details.
…and here’s the official in-game announcement…
