— in-game description
A character slot refers to the allotment of potential characters an account can create. Every character created on an account occupies one character slot. A character slot may be used to create either a PvP-only character or a (PvE) roleplaying character.
- Every account has 2 complimentary character slots. Each of the three campaigns adds 2 slots to the account.
- All slots have access to all campaigns added to the account.
- Additional character slots can be purchased in the Guild Wars Online Store. According to ArenaNet, the maximum amount of additional character slots that can be bought (on top of the number that came "out of the box" with campaigns) is 26. They cost $9.99 (USD) / €9.99 (EUR) / £8.99 (GBP) each. As of June 2015, the maximum number of slots allowed on your account is 28.
- The Guild Wars Nightfall Pre-Release Bonus Pack came with one additional character slot.
