Guild Wars 2 infographic provides insight into the game’s virtual economy

Friday, 24th August 2012 14:15 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Guild Wars 2 beta weekends have inspired ArenaNet economist John Smith to create an infographic detailing the game’s virtual economy, the amount of coin and wealth distribution across the land of Tyria. According to Smith, the MMO has “one of the largest” virtual economies “ever created,” and some of his finding have proved to be rather interesting so far. The graph is below, and a larger version is through here. Guild Wars 2 launches for those who pre-purchased the game tomorrow via the three-day head start. The official launch is on August 28. You can look over launch times and dates here. Thanks, PCgamesN.

    Huh. That’s genuinely interesting. The most popular crafting job being jeweller is especially surprising. (Cook being the least though is not surprising at all due to the karma expenditures it requires, but it does have good rewards.)

    i think you misread – jeweler was added in the last beta so people were trying it out because it was ‘new’

    (or at least thats what I understand from the text in the graphic)
