    Guild Wars

    Guild Wars is a MMO that was released in 2005. It has three available campaigns: Guild Wars Prophecies, Guild Wars Factions, and Guild Wars Nightfall. The only expansion pack that is available is Guild Wars Eye of the North. It is through this expansion pack that the Hall of Monuments may be used to unlock armor, weapons, pets, minipets, titles, and more in Guild Wars 2.

    With the announcement of what the Hall of Monuments unlocks in Guild Wars 2, many players have been actively trying to fill their halls and reach the 50/50 for GW2. Many have also put Guild Wars 2 wallpaper on their desktop backgrounds to motivate them, and make their computer reflect their goals in gaming.

    Guild Wars 2 will also be a MMO and will continue with the original game model of being subscription fee each month. The only cost will be the initial purchase of the game (and future additions). There will also probably be add-ons such as extra storage, costumes, and other things that are also available in Guild Wars for a fee. Those aren’t confirmed yet, but as it is an additional way for them to make money, it will more than likely also be offered.
