If you’re new to GW2, or maybe not so new, and if you’ve just discovered these magnificent SOVs, you naturally might be want to join them in Sea of Sorrows. They are having so much fun there! They are making so much villanousity! There may be cake!


Alas, you may be thinking to yourself, changing servers is a costly thing to do, and 1800 gems do not grow on trees. Except maybe ancient wood trees. And even then, the exchange rate is a terrible thing.


It’s true. It’s a terrible thing. Even when it’s not a terrible thing, it’s a terrible thing, because no matter what, it involves giving up your gold. Your beautiful, beautiful gold. That hurts. It just does. Even when it means you get to do something as awesome as be on Sea of Sorrows. Which is pretty fun.


But wait!


It turns out that if, and only if, you started out playing the free version of the game, and then upgraded, you are entitled to one ABSOLUTELY FREE server change!


Free.


For real.


I promise. I did it yesterday, by accident, completely expecting to pay, because I’m the kind of idiot who doesn’t do her research. I did the research afterward, in much fear and trembling and waiting to have my gems taken belatedly by an incensed Anet, with probably a late charge.


But it’s true, y’all! It’s free!


So just in case you didn’t know, and were just waiting, like me, to be as rich as skritts before you made the change, I just thought I’d mention.


Free server changes, if you upgraded!



So come play some wvw! Just think of all the trouble we can make!

Shouldn't if I recall back in the day we all got one free server change as well the first year it was out. I never used mine. I doubt they revoked it.

You're close.  Mink is not to blame for stale cupcakes, just the chemical mechanisms responsible for making cupcakes go stale.
