How to easily link your GW1 account to GW2 ? ✅

Here is a guide to easily link your Guild Wars account to Guild Wars 2.
The process is extremely simple and improves security of your accounts.

The GW1 account’s info will be replaced by yours (email, password, etc.).
That is what makes it so safe to purchase one of our premade HOM accounts. ✅

  Benefits of linking your accounts

      • One account; all of your games! Everything you purchase or unlock will be saved to your ArenaNet account: from the games and expansions you own to the items and progress you make as you play.

      • One Login: Once linked, you only need to remember your usual GW2 credentials to access all of your games; no need to remember a different login email and password for every game you own!

      • Improved Security: ArenaNet accounts offer an extra layer of security known as authentication, which lets you monitor and protect your account from unauthorized logins, including for GW1.

      • Exclusive Unlocks in Guild Wars 2Best of all, you are able to unlock exclusive rewards in Guild Wars 2 through the Hall of Monuments. Your in-game accomplishments are chronicled in the Hall, and allow you to unlock exclusive titles, items, mini-pets, and animal companions in Guild Wars 2 when you link your accounts.

      Linking Your Guild Wars and ArenaNet Accounts

         Before You Begin

        • IMPORTANT: Once you link a Guild Wars account to an ArenaNet account, they cannot be un-linked.
          Though you can ask support to transfer it to a different GW2 account (making your GW2 account un-linked again)

        • You may only link a single Guild Wars account to a single ArenaNet account. Make sure you sign into the correct account(s) before linking them.

        • Guild Wars 1 accounts cannot be linked to a Guild Wars 2 account that was created via Steam. If your Guild Wars 2 account was created via Steam, you will not have the option to link a Guild Wars 1 account within the Account Management Page of your ArenaNet account.

          Follow these steps to link your accounts:
          1. Sign into the account management page using your ArenaNet account.
          2. Navigate to the Game Content tab.
          3. Click the Link A Guild Wars Account button at the bottom of the page.

      4. Enter your original Guild Wars account name and password exactly as you would if you were logging in to the game client.

      Click the “LINK ACCOUNT” button.

      You’re done. Enjoy ❤️

      Note: Since 2022 a buggy error message “already linked” shows when you click link account.
      Do not worry if it happens, it is just a buggy error they never fixed. If you see it, it means it worked (so logic, right?)
      Just relog and you should see your Guild Wars account linked.
      Login GW2 and go check your new GW2 rewards. 🙂

      Hall of Monuments Portal Stone

      To access the Hall of Monuments in GW2, you can use the Hall of Monuments Portal Stone.
      The Portal Stone will be sent in your mail when you create a character.
      Purchased it for free from Sarettokk within Hooligan’s Route in Lion’s Arch, even if you don’t have a linked Guild Wars account.

      Alternatively, you can also interact with the Scrying Pool in Eye of the North. 

      Once you are in the GW2 Hall of Monuments, you can talk to Kimmes the Historian in order to unlock your skins.
