Do we know if the HoM items will be just added into their micro transactions?

As HoM items are supposed to reward players of the original GW, I really doubt they'll be made available from micro-transactions.

That said however, there isn't exactly a source on that if you don't count common sense, so its possible but very, very unlikely.

...I highly doubt that. If they're planning anything like that, they sure haven't announced it.

I think it has been said somewhere that these items will be unique.
Nostalgia cosmetic items. So there will be no point to anyone wanting to buy them really.

I think microtransactions will be limited to cosmetic items, and since some of the HOM items are armor (Heritage Armor) pieces and weapons, I don't think you'll be able to buy those. Of course, who really knows. Perhaps some of the titles may be bought.

Yeah I understand this, it was more the fact they are nostalgic stuff..


Also, yes I can imagine it would upset a LOT of GW1 players who put a tonne of time into the items.. So I can imagine it is a no to your question, they won't be in the in-game store.

HoM rewards are not restricted to pre-release. Since you will be able to obtain them by buying/playing GW1 even after release I don't see them adding these rewards to their Cash Shop.

It would be counteractive to their goals in 2 respects:

1. It would be a slap in the face to veteran GW1 players and would go completely against their implementation in the first place.

2. It would discourage people from buying GW1 to obtain said rewards.

Side-question, do you think anyone who didn't played GW1 will play it after playing GW2 to get the HoM rewards ? I'm curious about what you all think, but I don't think so.

The rewards that your Guild Wars 2 characters earn are exclusive to the Hall of Monuments and can't be picked up or earned anywhere else.

You can however still obtain HoM points even after the release of GW2.

Weve had a few of these threads in the past few months already, basically in those everyone (or at least the majority) agrees Anet isnt stupid enough to put the HOM stuff in the cash shop ever, and theres no need for them to add those items either, so theres nothing to worry about imo.

Edit: As far as will some GW1 players still play after GW2 releases, the answer is of course they will, theres a fair few who dont like the more open world changes and different pvp style of GW2, Anet will continue running different events and such too, and thatll drag some GW2 players back to GW1 during those events i imagine.
