Guild Wars 2 players should know that ArenaNet will be phasing out Glory, its PvP currency, and as of March 18 it will no longer be rewarded.


Announced back in December, ArenaNet didn’t provide a timeframe for the switch, but today it has posted more information regarding the currency on the GW2 website.

According to the firm’s John Corpening, come March 18 all existing random reward chests from PvP will also be removed. This means that all rank reward vendors will be removed as well, and players will no longer be rewarded with bonus chests for winning Solo and Team Arena matches.

“The bonus rank points that were awarded in these chests will become part of the end of match reward,” said Corpening. “The glory vendor that was introduced in the December 10 build will remain until the new reward system is released in a later update so you’ll have an avenue to spend your existing glory, but we will be removing the Mystery Coffer from his selection of wares.

“Because these rewards are being removed in preparation for the next phase of the PvP reward updates, we have also decided to release updated rank point rewards early so players can start earning increased rewards at the time that glory is removed.”
