Steam issues

Recommended Posts

My current setup of GW2 is via Steam. I installed the game there thinking I could just login with my Arenanet account credentials, but Steam wants you to make a new account, so that all purchases go through them. What you can do instead is right click on the game in your Steam library, select properties, and then type -provider Portal into the launch options. That will bring up the launcher where you can log into your whatever account you'd like.Also, as was said above. Don't buy expansions or anything else via steam if you're not playing the Steam account version. They will just be applied to that one and you would have wasted money. If you're using -provider Portal, Steam is just opening the stock Arenanet client and you can buy gems, expansions and other content in game.
