There was a blog post yesterday about upcoming content in GW2. They will be implementing a new currency, achievement tokens/’crowns’.
…but we already have so many tokens. I mean, every dungeon has its own token. Ascalonian Tears, Seals of Beetletun, Deadly Blooms, Manifestos of the Moletariate (never spelling this ever again), Flame Legion Charr Carvings, Symbols of Koda, Knowledge Crystals, Shards of Zhaitan, Fractal Relics (and now there’s Pristine Fractal Relics too).
And then there’s badges of honor from WvW, those commendations you get for donating to rebuild Lion’s Arch, skill points, glory, karma, gems, influence, that pact victory token you get in your story quest, and heck, gold itself. Why are there 18 (soon to be 19) types of currency in this game!?!?
