Guild Wars 2 Trading Post now available for everyone

Guild Wars 2's Trading Post, the in-game auction house that allows trade between all players across different servers, is finally available to all players.

ArenaNet released an official statement last night about the Trading Post on the Guild Wars 2 wiki.

"We've been expanding the Trading Post's capacity to handle the huge volume of requested trades. After our test yesterday, we've been working to resolve some issues reported by players."

Yesterday's update also contained some information regarding parties and guilds, PvP tournament rewards, and worlds and overflow.

"We've made progress but still have capacity constraints causing issues with party and guild functionality, including symptoms such as party members not appearing on the map, parties not staying together as they travel between maps or into dungeons, and guild manipulation not working," ArenaNet said. "We're working on a fix and will provide a further update tomorrow."

World capacity is increasing as well to handle all fo the new players coming into the game.

"During this initial surge of high concurrency, and especially while most characters are low-level and thus playing in the same starting areas, it's common for players to be directed to overflow servers," ArenaNet explained. "To play with a friend on a different overflow server, form a party together, then right-click on the friend's portrait in the party list and click "join". We expect the use of overflow servers to naturally subside as players spread out more through the world."

You can find all of the changes here, but the big feature is a fully operation Trading Post. Now that it is available for everyone, players can buy and sell items without the need to trade in person.
