If you buy the game via ArenaNet you need to buy expansions from ArenaNet or any authorized retailers.

If you buy the game on steam you have to buy expansions via steam.

 

You cannot merge ArenaNet accounts with Steam-based GW2 accounts.

 

I recommend buying GW2 as ArenaNet account because it supports linking to a Guild Wars 1 account for Hall of Monuments (HoM) rewards. However, you may want to select Steam if you care about Steam rewards and don't care about the HoM.

The thing is that in the country that I live in (Turkey), steam has pricing for my money currency and I cant buy the expansion with euro because its too expensive. So I wanted to buy it from steam and play it but Im sad that I cant merge it, is there any chance that it will come?

For financial and legal reasons, I don't see any chance that you will be able to add steam keys (steam GW2 expansions) to your ArenaNet GW2 account.

Reason is that Steam takes a bite out of any sales on Steam accounts which is not the case for ArenaNet accounts. Mixing them up creates administrative issues for ArenaNet.

 

If you want to take advantage of lower Steam prices in your currency, you should create a new GW2 account on Steam and buy the expansions there. But then you will not have any account progress that you already have on your ArenaNet account.

 

Currency purchasing power issues should be addressed by the relevant authorities.

By doing this you can still login to your anet account for passive income from login and extra daily rewards if you like OP
