So what’s the Hall of Monuments thing everyone keeps asking about? ArenaNet‘s John Stumme breaks it down for the newbies, as well as the hapless veterans — again, definitely not me! — in a recent blog post that describes a few relatively easy ways to earn perks in Guild Wars 2, as well as a glimpse at what some of those perks are in a video.
For the noobs (unlike me), you’ll need to get to the Eye of the North — which I did totally on my own without any help — in the expansion of the same name, which will also require you to own one of the campaign packs, easily acquired through purchase of the new Guild Wars Platinum Edition.
The rewards include armor pieces, weapons, mini-pets, and more that can be used in Guild Wars 2. Probably my favorite of the ones revealed in Stumme’s video is the Icebreaker, a hammer with a head made of, well, ice.
OK, the undead chicken is cool, too. But how does it taste?
So, how are you coming along in the Hall of Monuments? Better than my magnificent 3/50? And how many do you think you’ll have by the time of GW2‘s release?
