If you're looking to reserve your Guild Wars 2 character name, you'd better take care of it soon! Today on the official ArenaNet blog, the team announced a deadline of July 31st for name reservations.
Reserving your character name in Guild Wars 2 requires an active (recently logged in) Guild Wars 1 account. Simply create a character on your Guild Wars 1 account before July 31st and the name will be reserved for you for a limited time in Guild Wars 2:
We’re building our Guild Wars 2 name reservation list on July 31. We’re only reserving character names from active Guild Wars accounts, which is why you’ll need to log in at least once before we build the list in order to be considered an active Guild Wars player.
However, as we mentioned in a previous blog post, your Guild Wars character names will not be reserved indefinitely. You must create a Guild Wars 2 character with the same name as your Guild Wars character during the Headstart Access period or on launch day. Shortly after launch, we’ll free up all the unclaimed names for new Guild Wars 2 players to use.
