Waypoint costs are getting out of hand

Aren't those more expensive than using the Way points ? (Unless you basically use the way point a lot)

I mean, yes…. If you don’t have one already.  Would take a while to pay for itself. To me the convenience of it is quite nice and makes it worth it.


I use the Armistice Bastion one, because of the connection to WvW.  Only bought one..

PoF has a gizmo that teleports you to Vabbi. I assume EoD has more than one day worth of content so a similar gizmo might remain to be found.

Is there even any reason to be bouncing between the farthest points of the world?

When I came back 1.5 years ago I had a farming run that went all over Tyria and was costing me over a gold a day, even with the most optimized route I could manage (admittedly, it was a ridiculous 3-4 hour run...lol).  I quickly invested in portal scrolls to cut my travel costs, and started taking advantage of guild hall locations.  If Cantha had been in that run with no portal scrolls, oof.  😆

I watched the video and thought you were being funny, but now...

In what universe is 11 silver a lot?

Especially when they give you a Portal scroll in story, and everywhere prior to EoD portal scrolls are sold for pennies already.

0.055% of your Dailies earnings is still pretty cheap.

Hello, I'm new to the forum and relatively new to the game (been playing since late January)

I'm level 64 with my first character, and still grinding towards 80. But I realized that since the latest update, waypoints are much more expensive. It may not be related to the update, though. I don't know if the price scales with character/account level, the amount of coin you have in your wallet or if there's anything I need to know related to this, but standing next to the waypoint, it wants to charge me 1 silver and 6 coppers, as you can see in this image. I usually travel through Lion's Arch and towards the capital cities of the different realms to avoid the expense, but can someone explain why this happens? Last monday I was around level 57 and it charged me way less coin.

Thanks in advance if someone can give me an explanation on this topic.

Waypoint prices do scale up as you level, and with the distance traveled.  I seem to remember there's a point leveling where it suddenly seems steep, but I'm sure there's a specific percentage increase per level.  Checking the wiki now, but that likely explains the increase you've seen.

Edit: Yep, here it is: Waypoint - Guild Wars 2 Wiki (GW2W)  Scroll down to "Formula" and it shows the math, if that's the kind of thing that interests you.
