Are you confused about the Guild Wars store? Imagine how confusing it must seem to your in-game characters. Do you think TANK and PHOTICS know about ArenaNet’s special offer? To “finally discover what became of Gwen after the Charr invaded her home” they’ll need to spend $29 in the Guild Wars in-game store? Oh, and they’ll have to do that before Halloween! Episode #44 of Lost In Ascalon illustrates this unusual situation.
Don’t get me wrong, I really don’t have a problem with ArenaNet using Gwen to promote their online store. It’s just very different from the norm. This is the first time that a credit card is associated with Guild Wars. Without ‘credit’, how else would you get to experience the Guild Wars Bonus Mission Pack?
