Here’s a nifty announcement by NCSoft for players who owned the original Guild Wars. You can now link your old Guild Wars account with your new Guild Wars 2 account.
There is off course an incentive for this action. Those who do link up their accounts will be granted access to the Hall of Monuments. This area lets them accumulate points and earn rewards. Note that you’ll be required to have a copy of both Guild Wars and the expansion (Eye of The North).
Players will also be able to transfer their existing Guild Wars character name to their Guild Wars 2 character.
To link accounts, just follow the instructions below:
- Sign in to your Guild Wars 2 account at https://account.guildwars2.com
- Click Link Accounts on the left-hand side.
- Enter your original Guild Wars account name and password exactly as you would if you were logging in.
- Click the Link Account button.
- Click OK.
A warning before you proceed, the process is ire-reversible.
Guild Wars 2 will officially go live tomorrow for all players who pre-ordered the game.
