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 character or a roleplaying character.
- All new accounts start with 4 character slots.
- Each access key for a campaign added to the account, excluding the first, will provide 2 additional character slots.
- The Guild Wars Nightfall Prerelease Bonus Pack contains an access key for 1 additional character slot.
- Character slots can also be purchased in the Guild Wars In-Game Store. Up to 26 character slots can be purchased this way per account.
This allows for a maximum of 35 character slots per account.
