    P.S. I need more Z keys. ha
    If you don't enjoy playing the game, then everything will feel like a chore and you really shouldn't try it. However, if you enjoy the campaigns then you should at least be able to get 15 points or so by the end of all three. I am still working on it myself (currently got 16 points) and here is how I see it (from a perspective of having all campaigns).

    Easy (before level 20)
    • 3 - Bind Account
    • 1 - Any Hero: Mox
    • 1 - Any Minature: Wait until character birthday, buy or get the Unique one.

    Easy (level 20)
    • 1 - Any Pet: Just go ranger secondary and get a pet to level 20.
    • 1 - Any Rare pet: Factions has two rare pets. The first is available in Kurzick territory on a specific quest.
    • 2 - 5 companions: Remains of Sahlahja is probably the easiest way to obtain hero armor to reach 5 companions.
    • 1 - 10 companions: Add in one of the other two Nightfall challenge missions and you got yourself 10.
    • 1 - Rare Minature: Get lucky on birthday, or buy a rare, probably Prince Rurik being the cheapest.
    • 1 - Unique minature: Should be easy (haven't done it yet myself) by doing quest to get Black Moa Chick.

    Enjoy the game enough to finish campaigns
    • 2 - Any statue: Complete a campaign.
    • 3 - 5 titles: Complete campaigns with bonuses. (although getting all bonuses can be a bit grindy I guess)

    Grind
    • 1-2 - 20-30 companions: Grind the remaining hero armors
    • 2-5 - 20-50 minatures: Buy
    • 3 - PvP titles: Grind or Buy
    • 1-7 - 10-40 titles: Grind massively
    • 16 - Grind money and materials (60k + mats per point for the first bunch of points, more latter on)

    As such, I would say that you can get 17 points just by finishing the campaigns (with bonuses) and doing a few specific quests. I recommend using wiki.guildwars.com for quests and bonuses and such so you don't have to repeat more than necessary.

    The remaining way to 30 HoM is mostly about grinding money and materials. If you get 20 companions (shouldn't be a problem really) and 20 minatures (buy first/second year common) that leaves 10 points on mostly buying Armor and Weapons as the cheapest way. And yes, that is an expensive grind.

    *pop my collar*



    getting past the first 3 points is the toughest, but once you get over 9 things come faster.
    main things to do would be:
    1. get heroes
    2. get skills (elites mainly using capture signets on slain bosses)
    3. make that bread
    4. profit!

    If anyone is interested I also got some sort of guide..
    When you first start playing, just complete campaigns. This will get you heroes, skills and campaign statues. Then go grind the remaining points. You also want to join a guild with an alliance.

    Quick guide to 30 points. // when limited campaigns

    3 points
    Accounts linked.

    5 points
    Beat all 3 campaigns, getting Protector title in at least two of them. // Or get other titles (when limited) for 5 Statues (Full Display).

    6 points
    1 rare pet (which gives both that statue and the normal pet statue), M.O.X., and 7 more Heroes. // Other Hero instead of M.O.X. Read note.

    5 points
    1 Tormented, Oppressor, and Destroyer weapon. Plus two more of your choice.

    6 points
    1 unique, 1 rare miniature, and 28 more miniatures (Cheapest white ones).

    5 points
    5 Prestige armor sets. One must be Elite Luxon, Elite Kurzick, Vabbian // Otherwise get 7 Prestige armor sets. (Head gear not required!)

    Note: When able to easily get more heroes (with hero armor), get 20 (or when possible 30 companions) and drop 1 (or 2) points from Resilience, Valor or Devotion. This should safe you a considerable amount of money.

    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    you should look into joining a guild. there are many HoM farming guilds out there that you could join, just ask. also the GW wiki is your one stop shop for everything GW related. it's like the most comprehensive gaming wiki i have ever seen. and for builds there is pvxwikia once you join a guild and get your heroes and skills the game really is very enjoyable.

    Is this the big issue for you guys asking for help? If so, I'd recommend joining a different guild so they can help you with a bit. However, if you are the solo type, know that it can be done. 50/50 will require you to play extremely well and/or require a specific class in order to do it. However, you can easily get through the normal stuff (30/50) using certain hero builds. I'd link the actual builds, but MMO still doesn't trust me to link stuff. If you google discordway, you'll see a rather popular hero setup. Another option is to have a SoS spirit build. If you look for the builds used to afk Glint's Challenge (I do not condone afking; I do think the builds are rather powerful), you'll have another option to help you power through stuff solo.

    Edit: If you guys want me to go get the builds I used to solo through most of GW hard, I'll go get them and post them here.

    I would like to solo it, but I have trouble doing so, so I'll find a more proactive guild where people talk and stuff.

    Maybe you should first start doing the campaigns. Get better skills, heroes, and perhaps even better gear. Then do the EotN missions. You can't expect a guild to run you through the whole game. It is all perfectly soloable, but you must put some effort in it as well.

    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Ok I'm a GW veteran and have done almost all the campaigns and stuff. Bonuses and all. But I still only have a few. Can someone meet me on there and tell me what my next step is?

    The real question for those asking help is (1) do they understand the core game design which is needed to actually progress? Do they understand what skills they need? Which heroes to use? How to use them? What makes gear better? (2) Do they understand the basic path to getting HoM rewards? (3) Are they just having difficulty getting past their current position?

    The more I follow and analyze the thread, the more I see people falling into category 1 & 2. And I'm starting to believe they are falling into the number 1 category. There are a massive number of HoM guides out there. They'll tell you the easiest route and the goal is rather simple. However, if you don't have a firm understanding of game mechanics, it comes over as gibberish and impossibly hard.

    I know the first time I played GW I struggled a lot. I didn't complete anything before I quit. I came back later and solo'ed my way to 50/50 and GWAMM. However, I died horribly prior to doing a bit of research on the game. I'd be glad to help players by explaining game basics if that is the issue. I'd be ok telling them where to go for HoM rewards; however, the massive number of guides on HoM mean that they probably don't understand the game basics or they could just follow those. If players are stuck at a certain point, advice becomes easier as well. People aren't going to hand out free z-keys or power you through most of these.

    I'd like to help you guys, but before I spend time doing so, I really want to know what is the real issue so no one wastes time. Do you understand the basics of the game? Do you just need build advice for some content you are pushing? Do you know where to go next for additional HoM rewards? Have you consulted a HoM guide? What was unclear?

    I was told EoTN was the easiest thing to do and to go do that as soon as I dinged 10. I would rather solo the campaign and I don't expect a guild to run me through anything....I was looking for a guild to chat to rather than just dead all the time...

    A link to your HoM would be helpful and to know how many points your goal is.

    I think you misunderstood what ppl told you or they didn't make themselves very clear. To get to lvl 20 it's faster to go to EotN and lvl there, the actual campaign isn't made for a fresh lvl 20, especially if this is his/her first play through.

    Hey add me as a friend and whisper me when you are on, my guild and alliance is great with helping, and you and I could trek through the HoM together. Orion Aquafighter is my name.

    I am at 50/50 now, got last armor 3 days ago, so i'm done on that account

  18. #198
    I am at 13/50 and kind of have hit a wall. I am about 1/4 through Nightfall and 1/4 through Prophecies but have Protector and Hero of Cantha. I got a cel dragon and sold it to be able to get where I am which was half sad because now i have to find a rare mini to put in HoM! Aside from that filling in armor/weapons and various other mini's is just flat too expensive for me. Ill get there.... eventually

    here check it out http://hom.guildwars2.com/en/#page=m...AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Bound, but you will be able to make as many of them as you need (for all your alts and if you destroy them ...)

    My part in this story has been decided. And I will play it well.
