I waited until a release date was announced to start my HOM, and i finished up the 30/50 mark almost two weeks ago.

I had lots of help from the in game community (which was awesome) , so it didn't take very long. A few even donated substantial amounts of gold to help me on my way, citing they weren't going to need it before switching to GW2.

I did it faster by buying all the expansions, so that might be a part of the equation if you havent played before.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

They're cosmetic. If that stuff really matters to you, than get them. Otherwise why bother?

Its probably cool to have in the early stages lvling cause youll just stand out having something not many have. BUT come later levels or months from playing maybe even years. You might start to think those items taking up item space.

Even I was in GW1 since its first world preview in 2004, I played way too many characters and did many different things with my guildies most of the time so after I quit 5+ years later, I still didn't had finished Factions and Nightfall with one character (were using other ones for each campaign and so on.. x_X).

Could kick myself for that. -_-

Anyway... I went back and saw that I already had around 17-18 points accomplished so I jumped in once in a while to get more points recently and I'm at 26 with one armor missing to go to 28.

After that all I need is 4 more titles to hit 30+.

The main reason why I want the 30 points is for the black widow pet. ^_^

So for me it's worth it mainly for the ranger pets and mini pets the HOM points offer. Everything else depends on the power of these weapons and if they are a relevant choice for later levels or only starter weapons one would replace with "normal" ones after a few levels already.

Through the transmutation possibility though, it's still good to have them so I can still take their skin and apply it to a high level weapon I will stick with at a later point so ultimately, it's worth having them aswell. :)

With 55 platin you can afford one of the lower cost armors like the monument armor at the eye of the north or the norn or the asura ones.

However, to be able to get one of those, you need to have reached level 5 of their title.

The rewards are mostly cosmetic, but the pets are definitely nice to have.

However going from 0 - 30 points can be a pretty big chore, tbh. If you've beaten all the campaigns (EotN, Nightfall, Factions, Prophecies), then it will be a bit easier. If you try and do it all legitimately (ie. without buying some of the points), it's going to take you quite a while. You could probably do it in less than a month, but you'd have to be pretty deligent about it.

If you decide you want to buy some of your points, it's going to cost you somewhere between 500platinum - 1mil (in-game currency). This is mostly because the armor matts & weapons are really, really expensive (even moreso now that GW2 is releasing soon, all the HoM items have gone up in price).

So, the HoM won't give you any real perks power-wise. It won't make you lvl faster, and indeed will make you lvl slower if you have to stop playing GW2 for a time to focus on GW1. However, there are a few items that are pretty damned cool (black moa, and fellblade). If you like the looks, sure look into it. If not, don't waste your time.

Three weeks ago I asked myself the same question.

I was interested in the storyline and wanted to make a few points along the way so I bought all expansions, the skill unlock packs and started playing.

Well, today I have 29 points with the last point following tomorrow...

It was a wonderful experience and it felt like real achievement.

Granted, I had a little help, a friend handed me 200p and a few minipets. For the remaining 800p or so I sold a lot of Cloth of the Broderhood.

I can't really answer the question for you, for me, I really enjoyed it and don't want to miss the experience.

Well for those still working on it and don't have a tormented weapon yet. There is currently a GW2 launch event in GW1 where if you have all campaigns you can get a tormented weapon by doing 4 quests.

Which last I checked was still quite a pricy weapon. 

Even if mentioned before it can't be said enough.

correct it is very pricey, now the quest chain will take hours to do especially if you dont have some of the out of reach zones uncovered but its been great so far.. seeing the places I missed by not playing with my eyes open to what was around me. I think they did a great job on this questlive and its egging me on to get another point after the weapon to bring me up to 35 pts =D

Since the cost of earning HOM points will soon be playing GW1 instead of GW2, I would say don't bother. On the other hand, you might want to get the first 5 points or so (HOM armor skins), which is easily done before the 25th.

Maybe for players who need to complete a game for 100%. But apart from that the HoM rewards only have some nostalgia value for GW1 veterans imo.

sooo someone else mentioned the new Wayfarer's Reverie quests in GW1 going on, its basically a walk through all the cool places of the game and if you complete all 4 (Cantha, Elona, EOTN and Proph) you get a tormented weapon, which is 1 point alone. Well I was at 33 pts and didnt have one, so I was excited for that and just the experience of the quest.. I start to think well I will also get 1 more point and get 35.. I must fail at math because I made 3 armors and with the weapon got me a 5! more points... so now I am at 38 points and thinking I need to even it out again to 40.. /sigh I think the cheapest way for me would be the vabbian armor + one more armor to get 7.  

what do you all think?

I'm working on it.  I figure I can get to 10-15 points before GW2 comes out.  It's "worth it" if you want some skins for armor, ranger pet skins, and some mini pets.  Not that big of a deal, really.  Well, it gives you some lore too.  That said, I had already played some over a year ago.

There only negative thing to me is that from what I've seen/heard GW2 has a far better combat design than GW1.  That is, GW2 is very responsive and immediate when you activate a skill based on comments and videos I've seen.  GW1 has a lot of classes that aren't like this, and the targeting system can be a bit annoying.  I feel like I'm fighting with the interface more than I'd like.

If you want to do it, either start in Nightfall or get to Nightfall as quickly as you can.  That's the shortest campaign from what I've read.  Do that and it will help you get some points.  It also lets you get Heroes, which the other campaigns outside of Nightfall don't have inherently.  Ignore all non-primary quests unless they get you a hero, just focus on the primary stuff to get through it.  I wouldn't worry about the Cartographer stuff either, since that eats up a lot of time.

Check out for builds.  You don't have time to delve deeply into all the possible ways to build professions, so I suggest you see what other people have done.  It's a lot quicker to start there.

Also, check out for information on missions, where you can get elite or other skills etc.

I assume other people have already posted some guides on getting points.

Check the official wiki


In essence, link account, go to HoM in your home instance in GW2 and then talk to the NPC.

For those who haven't done anything at all with HoM yet, it's probably worthwhile to go to the Eye of the North and at least do the quest to start it. I read somewhere that after one week post-release, you won't be able to start HoM. Could be wrong. I don't remember where I read it. But since it's so easy to start it up, it's worth doing just in case.

I don't see it linked in this thread so here's the reward calculator:

I would agree with that. Unless you have plenty of alts that still haven't done War in Kryta, then I'd say go for a WiK rampage and rack up those Medals of Honor, and get six Oppressor weapons for 2 points. It might even turn out cheaper than buying Vabbian armor + one another, even if you have to buy a weapon or two.
