So I bought GW2 on launch day and greatly enjoyed it for about a month. I ended up taking a break as I'd just changed hours at work, had gotten a new computer, and other games had nabbed my interest(ones I had been unable to play very will with the old computer). When I stopped playing my Necro(my main) was somewhere in the 40s, I had very little gold, and no gems.
Yesterday I decided to get the game installed again and start playing. To my surprise my password no longer worked. I jumped a few hoops to get the account back and found the following.
My Necro was now 77, I had a ton of gold, and about 2000 gems.
I assume I was hacked at some point during my absence, but it actually ended up working to my advantage?! So now I decide what to spend these "gifted" gems on....
Anyhow, I'm quite happy with my return to the game, so thank you mr. hacker, for not deleting all my stuff and apparently using my character as a mule.
Anyone else have any delightful stories like this?
(P.S what should I spend my gems on?! Thinking of loading up on pets!)
(P.P.S I already made sure my new password was very hard to figure out, changed my email account's credentials, and verified no malware on the system)
