When your company lays off about a third of its work force, it’s understandable that more money has to come in. Maybe it’s a little unexpected that it would be solicited so soon after a new feature was implemented, but that’s how things are right now.
ArenaNet has added the Warclaw Frontline Mount Pack to the Gem Store in Guild Wars 2, letting you decorate your new mount in a quintet of shiny outfits. The pack price is 2000 Gems, or $25, and unlike the first time mount skins were added, you’ll get all of them for that price, with no RNG. Unlike last time, however, there’s no option to buy them individually.
That makes three different times mount skins have been offered for purchase in Guild Wars 2, and three different ways of buying them: pure RNG, RNG with an option to buy individually, and no RNG with no option to buy individually. Which one would you prefer?
