Then, the player must visit an NPC in the GW2 Hall of Monuments, which can be reached from one's home instance[1]. The NPC can then generate as many of the items as often as the player would like. [2]

- Official GW2 Wiki

So for human race, the home instance would be Divinity's Reach. Will the NPC (unknown name) be present in your home instance on your first time arriving in Divinity's Reach? or do we have to go through a series of quest chains to first unlock the NPC to be present in town? I've done my search but I don't see this part answered specifically.

Why I'm very eager to know is that many others including myself didn't link our GW1 to our GW2 account during registration for various reasons. We don't know if the linking option in our GW2 account management will be implemented in time before the head start which is just 8 days away. If the HoM rewards and achievements are available first time you arrive in your home instance, then many of us will be on a MAJOR setback in gaming experience and fun. Not to mention that I'd love to wear my GWAMM title on day 1 :)

I'd hope they'd sort everything out so any/every body can obtain these items as soon as they create a character, whether it's on the 25th or next year etc...

I would expect an announcement before launch of how they intend to do that, so keep tuned I guess

I can't imagine why they wouldn't have it available on-launch since that's kinda what they hyped in GW1. I salute your GWAMM title in advance in any case, I definitely didn't play enough or with enough focus to achieve that. Still need to figure out if it's worth it to finish my 30 HoM in the week before launch...

Thats actually a good question... i think they should have it ready for us when we start playing.. I mean, the whole HoM reward thing has been known about for a while so i think they'll get it done soon.

I believe its been stated that they'll be available immeadiatley, I imagine that the reason we don't have them in beta so far has to do with account data wiping and such

I believe you can access your HoM rewards as soon as you get access to your home instance, which is pretty much straight after you do the intro bit
