    GW2 Monuments - After Launch

    So, lets say I start to farm my HOM now, can I still link it with my account after launch? Or is this not available?

    Thanks in advance.

    Youll need to contact CS to link the accounts if you make your GW1 account after you make your GW2 account (or just didnt link them to begin with). Last I heard Anet said HOM will still add to your accounts rewards for 6 months after release so you have that long to farm.(not as confirmed as I thought)

    They've never said that in any place I've seen. All the FAQ says is the simple answer of "Yes." to being able to progress in HoM after release.

    Two different questions you're answering there - and I can understand the confusion, as the OP isn't perfectly clear.

    Merendel answers the question regarding linking your GW1 account with your GW2 account.
    Larynx answers the question regarding being able to continue to gain HoM rewards in GW2 after launch.

    fair enough. Went back and found where I read this.

    Ten Ton Hammer: Will new players be able to go back and play through the original Guild Wars after the release of Guild Wars 2 in order to get those special items in the Hall of Monuments? Or will there be a cut-off point to that sort of content?

    Jeff: I don't know exactly what the timing will be, but I will tell you that we aren't going to allow new players to Guild Wars 2 to go back and get those items in the Hall of Monuments. Our intent is to reward players who are playing Guild Wars right now. We have so many people who have stepped up to make Guild Wars successful and have invested so much time into their characters. The whole point of this [the Hall of Monuments] is to reward those gamers. We want to say, "Thanks for playing those one, two, or three years in our original game. We appreciate you guys getting into the game early, and we want to reward you for that."

    So I can't imagine that we'll let somebody coming into Guild Wars six months after Guild Wars 2 ships and letting them have rights to all of the same opportunities our original players had. Our expectation is that a lot of people are going to be getting a lot of stuff in the original Guild Wars in the several months leading up to Guild Wars 2.
    my recollection was slightly off, not a hard confirmed cutoff but still planed to be cut off. Its also from a couple years back so they may have changed plans in the mean time. looking for a more recent source on this issue.

    edit not finding much either way and its getting late. I'll try hunting down more tomorrow as now I'm irked that the only source I can find is somewhat wishy washy and dates back to when HOM first came out. Still I wont post about that agian kel unless I can find something harder. I don't like haveing or giveing out inaccurate info.

    I was under the impression that HoM would always be available even after GW2's launch. I mean it wouldn't make sens to cut it, you still need to invest a lot of time to get anything past the Heritage armor.

    That doesnt say anything at all. He is simply stating his view. No confirmation or anything so it cant be used as a source that they for sure will shut down HoM sometime after GW2 release.

    That is what their FAQ says/said on their website.

    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.

    One question I have on this subject, Is that, If you link your guild wars 1 with gw2 account, are you still able to gain HoM points and rewards after doing so? I have not read anywhere that says you can still earn rewards even after linking. Basically, I got my code to link, but if it means I cant earn more HoM points first I dont want to link them until the day before 3 day access.

    Yes. I'm linked, and am earning points as we speak. You get three points for linking, so get going! =D
