Claiming Your Hall of Monument Rewards

Post by Hal » Thu Aug 23, 2012 1:27 pm

Arenanet have today announced how to claim your bonus HoM rewards for those of us that have earned points in the original Guild Wars

https://www.guildwars2.com/en-gb/news/c ... s-rewards/

Overall the process looks very simple and easy to use and I for one am looking forward too seeing my Hall of Monuments 250 years later. Just need to make sure everything in order for release in 2 days time

'looks' easy :P

they still haven't set up the linking tool for ppl who didn't link GW1/2 accounts at registration, and the Support FAQ linked on the page you've linked to doesn't actually work.

still, they have time to get it sorted :)

Not sure how to go about linking your accounts together Riel, cause obviously I linked mine upon creation and so I should be set to go in T minus 40 hours and counting

Q: Why did I receive 3 points for having "Accounts Linked" under the Monument of Honor when I haven't done any linking yet?

A: When Guild Wars 2 is released, there will be a way to link your Guild Wars account to your Guild Wars 2 account. If you own Eye of the North, you will receive 3 points for linking the accounts together. The Reward Calculator assumes that you will have linked the accounts together, so it automatically gives you those points.

After a little digging this was the only thing official information I could find related to account linking, and its a few years old in reality, since the HoM calculator was announced a couple of years ago

Couple of other sources related to the HoM and acquiring the rewards from it, but none seem to deal with account linking =

they said on forum - during tuesday's stress test - that they're going to have the tool for it in place before headstart.

tbh i'm not worrying about it right now, but you can imagine people's reactions to that. i expect it'll be somewhere around noo, (UK time) on friday, since that'll give 9-12 hours before servers are turned on.

just taken a look through that FAQ, and there's nothing new or news there :P

second time you've made me review before i can get this posted :P

Found a little something related to account linking

When do I link my Guild Wars account with my Guild Wars 2 account?

You may link your Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 accounts when you register your account or you may do so in the future through the Account Management interface.

account linking looks to be active now. problem is, it claims i've already linked my accounts, which i know isn't possible. it also doesn't tell me what the GW1 account is that i've linked to.

now i'm getting slightly worried. will have another look later though to see if it's changed, or if there's any more info on it.

Could it be that you used the same e-mail address for both of your accounts?
