Guild Wars Reverie Event

Quote

The spirit of adventure is always moving us forward, but it can be difficult to reflect on the journey while you’re in motion. Recent scholarship has unearthed a festival, once observed by our forebearers, that addresses just this notion. The Wayfarer's Reverie honors the traveler inside each of us, encouraging revelry and revisitation. The world is yours to explore—again or for the first time. Join the celebration!


The reverie event update just went live to Guild Wars 1 yesterday.  Arenanet is offering every single Guild Wars 1 player who has traveled around the game a tormented weapon for completing a series of quests that will allow you to re-visit the viewpoints of the first game.  Simply complete four quest chains throughout all three games and the Eye of the North expansion, and players will receive one random tormented weapon upon the completion for all four of these quest chains.

In addition to earning Hall of Monuments points with the tormented weapon, players will find enemies dropping special trophies that can be trade for party and sugar points for their respective titles, allowing you perhaps max them out to add them into your Hall of Monuments, too!

Finally, all weekend bonuses have been enabled all at once.  This means you will earn double faction points, double Luxon/Kurzick title points, double Eye of the North reputation points, and much more.  These bonuses can also help you max out those titles you need to complete your hall of monuments.

The event runs from now until August 30th.  Placing items and titles in your hall of monuments will add to the rewards and titles you will receive in Guild Wars 2.  In order to view your current stance, check out the Hall of Monuments calculator.

It did go live on Friday, but it seems to have lacked decent exposure.  I hope this can help people fill up their Hall of Monuments for Guild Wars 2. :)

Do you get one tormented weapon for each quest chain, so 4 in total, Or one weapon when you completed them all? And can you do the quest chains only for the games you've completed? I only completed factions, and almost one with Nightfall...

I don't need the points, but I really want a tormented scythe for my dervish.

Keeping my fingers crossed!

It's pretty nice that they do this. Even though I don't have need for it anymore.

Gave me 31 points, due to now having a Tormented Scythe.

Considering just farming the rest of the week for GWAMM, but somehow, I can't find it in me with all this heat.

Sadly, playing the GW2 beta has made playing GW1 kinda frustrating. I keep trying to move while casting XP

Whoa, I didn't know about the doubled points - awesome. Not that I'm going to max anymore titles at this point, but that's still pretty neat.

The quests are just fun. Especially if you're with a group of guildies and talking on vent at the same time.

Ehh this diminishes the value of my 50/50 a bit, not to mention kills people still interested in GW (primarily DoA farmers)... Still a nice gesture, I suppose..

[/quote]You will get 1 tormented weapon for finishing all 4 of the quest chains. You do not need to have completed the games, no, But you will need to have gotten pretty far in them due to some of the locations you need to visit being very deep into the story.....

It's a very nice gesture from ArenaNet. I don't think it really diminishes the accomplishment that long-time and hardcore players have had with the HoM too much, because to get up to 50/50, and especially those last 20 points, really shows an[b] immense[/b] amount of dedication to the game and I bow to those players who have it. Well done to them! :)

For those that's only been playing for a short amount of time, it won't give much of an advantage either, because if you're aiming for 30, it still takes quite a bit of dedication (and let's face it, lots of grind at this late stage) to get to there. I had 28/30 up to yesterday, but thanks to this festival, I got 1 more point, which led me to pool every single penny I had to buy diamonds and other mats for 1 more destroyer's weapon, giving me the 5 statue valor award - now I'm 30/50, after more than a year's worth of casual'ish play.

Needless to say, I'm very happy. :)

I was at 20/50 before and I will be at 20/50 after this event. Nice for people who still enjoy GW1, but I cba to go play that game again. It just feels frustrating now that I stopped playing it for a few years and having played GW2. The game just veels so outdated and slow.

Free torment weapons and a another week of all bonuses active like the birthday ones. Seems like the whole idea of HoM allowing people that spent alot of time on the original to get something back is kinda forgotten. Now its just some giveaway to anyone who will buy the original game.

Took our group about 8 hours to finish these. Not free. Not exactly the cost of an armbrace, but, still, not free.

I get the sense it was really just for getting people over the edge, picking up another reward or two, and reducing the amount of grind for people who were already going to be putting the time in to farm points. The amount of reward completely pales in comparison to how much is needed for 50 points, or 30 points, or even 5 points depending on where you are in the progression. This doesn't diminish that at all. If they were giving away multiple prestige armor sets, or titles, yes, I'd be a bit more annoyed about that.

I also found it nice to go to all these places. Didn't know the pale tree already existed; that was pretty awesome.
