GW2's Gem Store gets a major boost with new items and gifting feature.
ArenaNet, the devs behind Guild Wars 2, have announced the addition of gifting to the Gem Store (the game's cash store) along with some fresh items. The feature simply adds a new button next to the "purchase" button that will allow players to buy an item as a gift. And of course, you can attach a friendly note with the gift. A full guide to the gifting system can be found here.
But it wouldn't be fun to gift if there weren't new items to give out, so ArenaNet also added a grip of sweet items to the Gem Store. Among these are more Aetherblade Armors and a new backpack. My personal favorite addition are Custom Arena Starter Kits, which help players get started in hosting their own PvP matches. Here's the rundown of the new Gem Store items.
The most recent update, Sky Pirates of Tyria, just went live so there's no better time to get some sweet new gear for you or a friend.
