It's here![edit source]

I have no idea where Durmond is, but I'm certain the new build just now was access to BMP. EDIT:: Found him, he's in every "port" city. By the fountain in LA. -Felix Omni 00:26, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Added Bonus Mission Pack to wiki. --Lotsahelp 01:52, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Way too Easy[edit source]

:/ Haven't tried all of them yet, but I already did Togo's, and it took me no time at all, and little to no effort. 01:29, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, Togo's is only remotely hard if you miss with that rage skill. Turai's is similarly easy, I forgot I had healsig half the time. Kinda glad it's easy, for now at least, cos I can stock up on these items for heroes :p -Auron 02:23, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Turai's is actually very hard if you do it on a caster. I'm not too good at warriors in the first place, and with no monks and (i believe) just 60 armor, you can die very easily. Entrea Sumatae.pngEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 03:51, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Togo is easy as pie, just wait till talon dies if your having trouble, when they move ot your spirits cast spirit rift then rage, instant aoe death.
Gwens is probably the hardest cause if you screw up and agro a bunch your pretty much dead. --Sefre Sefresig.jpgTalk*Cont. 03:55, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Saul's Story isn't much different. If you pay attention it is easy to beat the first time through, Hard Mode anyone? (hint if you have trouble at the end, stick with the best 'players' up front :))
You can't really complain about having problems "because you're a caster" I belive your AL, attributes, and skills are all set in stone, regardless of your character :P 06:31, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
I believe he meant it the way "I mostly play caster characters so for me playing a warrior is hard" 02:04, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Gwen's was way fun, being all stealthy and stuff and hiding and running... and playing dead :D I loved it :) --Progr.jpg -- talkpage 09:37, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, definately enjoyed the Gwen part, haven't done the others yet, but this type of gameplay is, in fact, what I had hoped GW would be more like, overall, when I first started playing, with skills that interact with the environment way more than focused on just killing foes before they kill you. My guess is that this line of adventuring will continue in GW2. Atleast I hope so! - Pup

I hope you are right, because I totally agree. Gwen's wasn't hard at all to me though (beat no issues first try before there even was a wiki page--I play a lot of Metal Gear type games), but it was still very fun.

Survivors, take note[edit source]

I haven't seen my death count increase. If someone can confirm this, those survivors out there could get some nice risky charr-killin' action going... at least, until Anet revokes the privilege. 02:21, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

I haven't paid much attention, but I'm pretty sure you don't earn experience while playing any of the bonus missions, which makes using them for risk-free survivor levelling pointless. EDIT: Yep, no exp gains throughout the missions. --Glommon 12:35, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
You are right, leveling is not an option. However, what I meant is that the survivor can be used in a risk-free battle, for fun. Cheers. 21:29, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Motivation are the free weapons you can get for yourself and your heroes, some are really pretty (esp. the bows). --Birchwooda Treehug 04:02, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
I just tested the death count when I accidentally died with a survivor. It doesn't go up! Woo! Bluespike 5 12:17, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Redo mission??[edit source]

When u complete 1 of the missions, and you trade in your authorized story, can you get the same story back off Durmand, do the mission again and get another authorized story? --Munki 16:24, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

For the billionth time. Yes. You can repeat them infinite times.-- 16:26, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
The question asked is not "can we repeat the mission ?" but "will we get anouther authorized story when we repeat the mission ?". 17:19, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
And the answer to that is Yes, you can. --RM 17:23, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

wished still counted[edit source]

I had bought over $60 in stuff from the store during the pomotion, this include GW:EN. then shortly after GW:EN came out all the stuff i bought was refunded and keys were taken away. i have no ideals what was the cause and i didn't want to deal with it anymore. but technally i did fullfill the req yet they didn't give it to me. and no i didn't ask for a refund, i just logged on and found out i couldn't get into GW:EN anymore. nice errors on anet's part. 17:37, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

If you didn't want to deal with it and you never bothered to figure why this happened, it's hardly an error on A.Net's part. If it happened shortly after GW:EN came out, you still had nearly two months to figure out what happened and what you could do to re-earn the BMP.--Murdoc the Mad 18:58, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Re-earn? are you swimming in money? you dont buy products again so you can get a promotional item!

Hmm? If you were refunded, then that means you were given your money back, so why didn't you just go buy the same products again? And why didn't you put in a ticket with support telling them what happened? Computer glitches are an inevitable of our increasingly-digital lifestyle, so it was your responsibility to email support saying, "Hey guys, THIS happened! Can you please fix it?" Kokuou 17:23, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

I had a similar problem to yours - I had bought 3 extra character slots, and I signed on one day to find they were gone (which was interesting because I then had more characters than slots, and it told me so). Well, I talked to Anet and found out they mistakenly removed them, but since I asked about it, they gave me three new keys and refunded my credit card, but I specifically asked them about whether I would get the mission pack. I think that since I asked, they made sure I still did, because they told me it would work, and it does.

Could someone help me with this, kindly please?[edit source]

Could someone please help me with this wording and understanding? "For each bonus goal you complete, Durmand will give any one character on your account an additional authorized story. The additional stories can only be earned once for each account." What are the additional stories and how are they only earned once per account? I have already played some of the missions, but I do not want to do the bonus and find out that I can no longer earn rewards for something. If anyone understands this fully, please explain it differently than the way that ANET wrote it out. Thank you =)

My guess is that it is similar to account-based unlocking of skills, in that readable pages get unlocked and added to the books you receive from Durmand. Once one avatar has unlocked a page, it is unlocked for all characters of your account. Thus you don't have to achieve the missions in less than x seconds anymore (or whatever extreme criteria) with other avatars in order to read the new pages. Difference being, it's not a title AFAIK. 21:38, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Per account? I thought it was per-character?--Marcopolo47 signature new.jpg (Talk) (Contr.) 21:41, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
There's a gold reward for beating it with discoveries. You only get the gold rewards once. 22:55, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Completing a mission gives you 500g and finishes off a book, which can then be authorized; this can be repeated as many times as desired. From there, you can complete the three bonuses in Discovery Mode. Completing each bonus nets you a one time per account reward of 2.5k as well as a free authorized book, which can be accessed on any character. The wording in the update is really confusing, but hopefully that explains it.--Murdoc the Mad 00:43, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

No armor change[edit source]

When doing these missions, health, skill, and attributes change... but not armor. Makes it very difficult to do Turai's on a caster. 60 AR = not good tank. And warriors get 80/100 AR on a caster hero. Not fair... Entrea Sumatae.pngEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 03:36, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

It's not a big deal. my elementalist, ranger, ritualist, and warrior all played all of them, and I noted no severe change in difficulty. 20:04, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
That's an interesting issue. RT | Talk 20:05, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Bug[edit source]

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I'm able to get two authorized books for the price of one, (I get one book, do the quest, and end up with two authorized books). I can do this every time I do a quest. - Anon

How Long[edit source]

It doesn't say how long it lasts. So, umm... How long does it last?--"Burn Baby Burn!".jpgFireTock 16:54, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

How long does what last? The Missions? They are in all likelihood a permanent addition to the game. --Scottie bow.jpg Scottie_theNerd (argue) 00:30, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

The number of weapons you can get[edit source]

Is there a maximum number of weapons you can get, or you can get as many as you like.

As many as you like. --Venelix 19:11, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
 :Nice :D

Is this confirmed, as many as you like or is there an absolute limit to how many you can get?

theres a maximum, its cslled your total inventory and xunlai storage

They are auto customised, so you can't give them to other characters, would be nice to see them (a little like the dedication system) be able to be given to other characters on the same account RT | Talk 15:32, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
You can always just complete the mission with that character. Or use one of the free discovery books on another character, if they've got non-max armor or something. Either way, it's not too terribly difficult to get these weapons for any character.--Murdoc the Mad 16:43, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
According to the article relating to this talk page, you can only get one additional book per account. As in, each character does the missions, gets the books, gets the weapons, then only one more of each book on your entire account. Am I reading this correctly? Because it seems rather stupid, to be quite frank, to put a limit on the number of auto-customized weapons an account can receive .... it's not like you can stock up on them to sell. Just a thought. --Aldora 19:50, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
It's wrong, I have 5 togo stories, and another 5 authorized ones. You can get as many as you want.--Gigathrash sig G.jpgigathrashTalk^Cont 19:53, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
It's not wrong, it's referring to the additional authorized stories you get for finding each discovery. You can only earn those once per account, but you can earn as many others as you want by simply completing the mission again. Discobadger 00:02, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

It IS terribly difficult to get this on a new character, starter armor can't take on level 20's. Entrea Sumatae.pngEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 23:39, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind, misread comment. You can get discovery books on different characters? Nice! Entrea Sumatae.pngEntrea Sumatae [Talk] 23:40, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Reward Count[edit source]

Can we get a count of the total number of Reward weapons one could earn by completing this pack? What is the maximum number of reward weapons + weapons automatically given? and is this per character or per account?

Easy answer - You can have an infinite amount of authorized stories (just complete the mission x times +3 for the discoveries) so the max number of reward weapons is also infinite. Only disadvantage: They are customized to the character. You can't sell or trade them, and your other characters can't use them. But if you like it, all your heroes can have mursaat weapons. Or give Saul's staff to them. Or Ossa's sword and shield. Everytime you ask for a new Ossa book you also get Ossa's shield and sword. 02:18, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
You said that you cannot trade the weapons, but can you trade the books? I just ask cuz I wanna have such a weapon ^^ Nashi-chan 05:07, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

End[edit source]

Once again, no one asnswered me, when does this end?--"Burn Baby Burn!".jpgFireTock 02:22, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

It...doesn't.--Carmine 03:40, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
It's a permanent addition to the game, it isn't a one-week event or something. -Auron 03:41, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
FireTock, I answered you above. --Scottie bow.jpg Scottie_theNerd (argue) 03:56, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
And for further proof, from the BMP FAQ "Will the missions expire? The missions, once added to your account, remain available for you to play as often as you desire." --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 03:59, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Oh, didn't see you answered me. But, that's awesome. I salute you Great Invntor's of Guild Wars.--"Burn Baby Burn!".jpgFireTock 14:29, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Maybe put that in there? That it doesn't end.--"Burn Baby Burn!".jpgFireTock 23:51, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Authorize[edit source]

What I didn't get so far. Why bother with authorizing the books in the first place? When you're given the books they're customized anyway. Customizing and then authorizing? Don't see the point. --Birchwooda Treehug 03:54, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Huh...maybe it was something left over from the other Books that just got copied by mistake. Or perhaps there are people who are indecisive and wish to leave the books in Storage for awhile? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 03:56, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Agreed - I don't see the point of authorization either, and for that matter I'm not sure what the storage restriction is for. What's the harm in storing a completed book in your storage account since it is customized anyway? Shadowlance 16:51, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
I too think it's a weird and unnecessary complication. I'd love to hear the "official" rationalization. The only rationalization I can think of is this: If you decide to stock up on "authorized" books for future use (to save them for heroes you haven't yet unlocked, for instance), you pay the price with your precious inventory slots. What could that accomplish? It would discourage you from replaying the missions for a gazillion times in the week it is released and prevent you to get burned-out on them. Kinda "gently nudging" you to come back to the bonus missions from time to time infrequently, as opposed to consuming them all at once and getting bored of 'em. Artificial replay value.IshmaeelLazyeyes.pngping/peek 19:41, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Addendum: My comment above was aimed at the storage restriction where you cannot put authorized books into Xunlai boxes. The authorization itself, I believe, is required by the underlying game mechanics. You see, the collectors request a specific item and probably there is no support for detecting the properties of a collected item (incomplete/completed for books), so, you exchange your completed book (item #1 with variable properties) with authorized books (item #2 which is a fixed thing) and they are able to implement the collectors without having to modify the existing code for collectors. I'm still curious about the storage thingy though. Perhaps I'll ask on the official wiki.IshmaeelLazyeyes.pngping/peek 12:08, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
Addendum2: Ok, I have actually been answering my own question, but I wasn't paying close enough attention to myself. Here's the deal: The collectors do not care about customization either. Since none of the collectors ever needed to collect customized items, the code to look for customization simply did not need to be there. So, in order to prevent other characters (or even other players!) from "cashing-in" the authorized books without modifying the collector code, they had to make sure the books did not change hands. –IshmaeelLazyeyes.pngping/peek 23:55, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
It's a roundabout way of explaining it, but it makes sense. That's the beauty of coding, isn't it...always take the easiest way out :) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:59, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Heh, the explanation is a mess because it was an ongoing development process. I have been R&D'ing it for some days now, and it only just cooked up in my silly little monologue. Just wait until I do some refactoring! :P –IshmaeelLazyeyes.pngping/peek 01:33, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

What happens after u do discovery on everything???[edit source]

It says u get like a new story or someone can someone clarify for me?

When you complete a Discovery, that nets you one additional copy of "X's Story (Authorized)" upon completion of the mission. That's all. You can't get the additional copies again, and they serve little real benefit because you can complete missions as many times as you want to get extra authorized books. There's nothing special about getting all Discoveries on all missions. (Not yet anyway - wouldn't be surprised if ANet decided to incorporate it into a title or something.) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 01:28, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, it's 2.5k for each discovery. Multiply that by 6-7 characters and then again by 12 and you have a minimum of 180 fresh platinum.--†Fallen† 03:35, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
Actually it's once per account. 30k in total --Macros 03:36, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
"*Completing each mission also unlocks “Discovery Mode” for that mission, adding three hidden, bonus goals for you to discover. For each bonus goal you complete, Durmand will give any one character on your account an additional authorized story. The additional stories can only be earned once for each account..." Basically the discovery books are freebies that can be used by anyone on your account after you unlock them. However you can still get infinite books by completing the mission as many times as you want. --Macros 03:40, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, I just did discoveries on 2 different characters, and it gave me 2.5k for 6 of the same ones. Bug? idk.--†Fallen† 03:48, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
If that is the case, it's definitely a bug... that way there's nothing to stop people from making a char, completing the bonus missions, then making a new one and doing it all over again, basically meaning it would be unlimited free money. granted it wouldn't be very efficient way to make money, but still. Discobadger 03:43, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
It might not be a bug - they might just be lazy. Think about it this way - Their computer says you can get a total of 12 2.5k rewards. You've gotten 6 twice. Are you able to get any more?

Skill Repositioning[edit source]

I was just messing around with one of the missions, Togo's Story, and I rearranged the skills to better suit my preferences. Worked fine, open up the skill menu and move them around like normal. When I got back to town my own normal skills had been rearranged to match the changes that I made in the bonus mission. Anyway, is this a bug, and does it happen in other special circumstances where you have a different skillset, if you move them around? -- mechasoupx 06:27, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't think it is a bug. When you are in a Junundu or Siege Devourer you may also move the skills around as you see fit, and when you get back to town your other skills are rearranged also. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 14:08, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Bonus Pack Question[edit source]

I've been asking my guild members this~is there anyway to buy the bonus pack from stores such as Best Buy? My guild leader says that 1 month after the bonus pack release , the bonus pack release will come into stores such as GameStop , EBgames and Bestbuy. Is this true?

Nope, A-net stated it would be a one time offer. If you haven't got it now, you probably never will, unless A-net does something about that. No game store can even sell it because there are no activation keys or such for it. --Progr.jpg -- talkpage 23:41, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
I assume that means that if you had already purchased everything there was to purchase before the promotion, you are also quite out of luck? --Bishop 01:20, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
Correct, you had to purchase USD$29 (or more) worth of products from Anet's on-line store between July 5, 2007 and October 31, 2007, that was the only way (and by the gods, I wish Anet would offer some other way to obtain it, but as Progger has said, there has been no indication to date of any such option) :( --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 00:45, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
I must admit, I do not understand why they don't just offer it for free to everyone who's bought everything else. I mean, sheesh. --Bishop 14:09, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I hope that A-Net will allow the rest of us who didn't buy stuff online to get this somehow. I just saw the Tengu sword and i'm kicking myself. There just wasn't anything that I wanted at the time... boohoo --BeeD 16:03, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Limit 1 per household?[edit source]

This limiting one per household because of common IP address sounds incorrect, surely Anet would base the transaction upon the account name than purely on source IP address! Otherwise, what if say players were in a shared housing situation (ie, like flatmates that each had separate GW accounts but used the same internet link), or family where parent(s) and kid(s) have their own accounts, that would entirely disadvantage players in those situations (especially if they have a static IP address and so would be unable to workaround). Would have to have been a very basic mistake on Anet's behalf if they were to be so unimaginative as to not see that there could be many ways that one IP address might be the source for multiple players. Is there an offical link someone could provide? (otherwise doesn't this fall into rumour / heresay). --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 01:13, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

yeh thats a load of rubbish me and my bro share the same connection and we both have the bonus mission pack--Chris1645.JPG 02:55, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Limit 1 per household is a common legal clause for compotitions / promotions They don't care. RT | Talk 14:17, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
For sure, but this is not what is being discussed here. There is a claim that only one account holder per household was able to obtain the BMP because Anet was using the source IP address of transactions on their on-line shop to track compliance with their promotions requirements rather than attributing sales to specific account names. It does not make logical sense that Anet would do that, and so this topic is about trying to determine if this is just rumour or if someone can post a link to something more definitive. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 00:31, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Disconnecting[edit source]

i was disconected in Gwen's mission and when i reconnected i was still in it. nothing had changed except that i had my normal name again. i didnt think to get a screenshot at the time. Metalmiser 03:55, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Would be pretty damn funny if you could, for example, kill Palawa with a female Monk :P Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 04:08, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
I had the same thing happen to me during Turai Ossa's Story. When I reconnected I was still Turai, but my name had changed back to my character's name.

Available by itself 1/28/08[edit source]

Looks like they reversed their decision and will be offering the bonus mission pack for $10 starting the 28th. 404notfound 21:03, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

<must... resist... urge... to jump... around the room stating "I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!" over and over> Hands up anyone who was anything more than mildly surprised by Anet's "change of mind". ;) Hope this extends to non-EU/USA locations like Australia / New Zealand etc. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 01:51, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Rofl @ ANet. I applaud them for keeling to market pressure. It must be those damn skins. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 19:16, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
will it be in stores?
"The Guild Wars Bonus Mission Pack will be available to purchase from the Guild Wars Online Store, the PlayNC Store, and a variety of retail partners located throughout North America and Europe starting on the 28th of January 2008 for an estimated retail price of $9.99 / €8.99 / £5.99." -So, yes. But only if you live there. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:57, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
I think its totally unfair to make it appear that if you pay $30 you can get the one time offer, then later they release it for $10. Granted you get other things for that $30, but I did not need 3 more character slots. I have been a long time player and they are doing more and more things to make me angry. Like releasing mini-pets that only a few people get making collecting them impossible. Its just pointless to play when they keep doing stupid things like this. -LiL_J
If you didn't need 3 char slots, why did you buy them? A-net never said it was guaranteed that it was one-time, no-one ever said flat out that it wouldn't be released seperately. You could have just bought EotN online and got the BMP anyway. Lord of all tyria 16:58, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
IMO they were always going to do this, sorry that you feel it's unfair, but is it unfair to the people who didn't get the stuff? RT | Talk 18:06, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but RT did those people not choose for themselves to NOT purchase anything with the Guild Wars Store? Anywho, awesome. Finally a Mursaat Bow, Tengu Daggers and an Undead Staff. (charr weapons are for nubs) - Yikey 18:41, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Exactly Yikey... For example, I chose not to buy things I didn't need as to get the bonus mission pack, because like Wolfie, I KNEW they would sell it separately. Things come to those who wait. And if you didn't wait, tough cookies for you! -- Tasiden 04:15, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
I think it's funny that people who bought EOTN in the store and received the BMP for free always think they got betrayed... People who are going to buy the BMP on the 28th will have spent $40, whereas they spent $30. Yeah, I'd feel betrayed too if ANet saved my $10. Damn. Ruricu-sig.png (TalkContribs) 17:15, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
I feel conned by a cheap marketing trick after buying online to get the bmp. I wont buy gw2. Drogan - 20:22, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
How exactly did you get conned? Cause you bought $30 or however much worth of material and got a free $10 product? Instead of spending $10 for it now and not getting that other material?--Alari 05:16, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

This isnt fair to those who got it the right way![edit source]

We work hard to spend that $30 before the deadline, and now you repay us with this? What was the point of spending $30 for the 'one' time chance when you are going to be unfair and give it away like this.

Anet want money, be glad you got it for 'free', when you did. Although I think the items should be tradeable (non customized) now, I mean, you can sell EotN items to people who don't have EotN. So when the BMP comes out, everyone has an equal opportunity of getting the items. My logic make any sense? Jamster Sig.jpg ---Jamster--- 17:08, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Lol worked hard? --Macros 17:27, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, the effort of putting in credit card numbers to buy EotN nearly killed me. Lord of all tyria 17:41, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
The original free offer was probably mostly to encourage buying online to cut back on the costs of manufacturing the discs and so on. And I doubt that the BMP weapons will be free, since the main motivation for making it available seems to be those skins anyway. 20:26, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
You have to have known that they would do this. I mean seriously, when it comes to selling items and services, there is no "one time deal". Unindal 23:34, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
No 'one time deal' hu? So I can expect to find Devine Aura soon can I? I think it's also the fact that the people who got the BMP went out on a limb.. didn't know what it was going to be like.. took a leap of faith.. payed more for things they didn't need.. or lost a nice looking box to match the others... and Slap! gg Anet..., when I ordered EOTN online to get BMP I lost a NICE BOX?!? Not that! However shall I cope?!? Jesus, some people will complain about ANYTHING I guess. Yeah. You might say I really, really don't care that people who didn't buy online can get it now. Good for them, IMO. DKS01 19:39, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
I think Anet should release EotN boxes with no key in them (they can include everything else that comes in the retail box) for $10, for those that feel left out. ;) -- Peej 20:11, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Hahahhaa, nice $10 box ftw! DKS01 23:27, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I'll never understand why people get so worked up about what other people own. --Macros 01:20, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Because they want to be special. Basically, it's the "nyeh nyeh nyeh, I have one but you don't" mentality --BeeD 05:11, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I spend 3hour to read all (superb) article about guild wars story, that, in 3years of play,i don't really look with real deep interest. And I discovers that bonus mission pack allowed to play quest really interesting in just the way of guild wars knowledge . I would be so please to see those quest and story. But i can't , I spend money to buy all campaign (so above 150€ the 4campaign) but it was on videogameshop! not by internet way! So for them, i spend no money..... I have a friend who only have 2 campaign, and 1 bought by internet, so i reach the 30€spending needed for the mission bonus and get it... I spend near 100€more than him, but JUST beacause it was not on their stupid internet shop, they don't give it to me... I'm really pissed of that stupidity of judging the internet contribution and not considering the fact that i spend lot money for their damn campaign! It's unfair! Not for the unique weapon we get, i really dont care, fashion consideration appear to be ridiculous for me, but just accessing the mission itself.. Pff..

You usually spend more if you buy campaigns in the in-game store. GWEN was $40 in the in-game store for those who bought it then, while someone who buys it new off Amazon today gets it for $17 (plus tax in certain states). Quizzical 03:23, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Where can I get it?[edit source]

I cant find anywhere to buy this now, other than from the online store. Where can I get it? 13:40, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

The GW web site page (see Jan 10th entry) states "purchase from the Guild Wars Online Store, the PlayNC Store, and a variety of retail partners located throughout North America and Europe", so would assume this would be regular Guild Wars stockists, try the retailer where you purchased previous GW products from, if they stocked Prophecies, Factions, etc, likely they'd have the BMP, or could at least order in for you. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 22:40, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I would also like to know where. I've done searching and I have yet to find it in retailers. I would buy it in-game but the account is not in my name and they will not let you use a card in a name that differs from the account. Morgan Fairweather 05:03, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Since the bonus mission pack isn't very important or expensive, I wouldn't expect very many places to stock it. Felix Omni Signature.png 05:06, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Well that's odd, I've used my credit card to buy things for other people's accounts before. Are you sure it doesn't let you? Overlord Stan 03:29, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah... a friend lent me his credit card to buy stuff for my account...and it worked
Oh and here's the link: kyrasantae 06:56, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
IIRC, the main complaint from the people that didn't get the BMP was "I can't use a credit card" / "I don't buy things online". If this isn't available in retail stores, why aren't those same people still loudly complaining here? -- Peej 02:34, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
A guildie of mine had an issue with someone else buying from the online store for him... the transaction was reversed due to credit card fraud, and, if I'm not mistaken, his account banned for a short while. Ruricu-sig.png (TalkContribs) 03:14, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Original post was me btw. I have checked: GAME, Gamestation,, CD-Wow, Woolworths, Pricerunner, Amazon, and searched the net in general..nothing...— ~Soqed Hozi~ 08:01, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Is it realy going on retail stores or Anet change something in the last minute? why nothing is announced? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (contribs) 11:28, February 2, 2008.
Was announced, see 2nd comment from the top of this topic, Anet have said "...a variety of retail partners...", though unhelpfully not specified which ones. --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 03:42, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
"Retail" doesn't necessarily mean brick & mortar stores, btw. — User:Kyrasantae kyrasantae 04:12, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
indeed, they are in fact selling from online stores, and even then, only from a few, and ones I have never heard of. Phails. — ~Soqed Hozi~ 16:36, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

"Special Note" what the hell?[edit source]

I don't know who added this to the article.

  • SPECIAL NOTE: Those who wish to purchase the Pack on-line, and want to avoid having their Log-in name hijacked by PlayNC, you can now get the Pack through "*****" at http://www.*****.com . They email you the Key-Code without interfering with or locking up your account.

But I have never heard about Anyone getting their account hijacked by playNC, ever. And i have never heard of that website either. And that user has only ever made that single edit to the wiki. But I'm not experienced with what should and shouldn't be on the wiki, so I'll let someone who knows deal with it. Viruzzz 08:36, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I've reverted it. Buying official ingame things through other websites is like begging to get your account stolen... --Winterbay 08:38, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Thats what i thought, wasn't sure though. I removed the website in my comment above too. Viruzzz 08:59, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
It was a phishing scam. Also it doesn't matter if you censor the name since anyone can just look it up in the history. --Macros 09:02, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
If they want to search for a way to get their account stolen, yes. But that would be pretty stupid, don't you think? I just know form myself that I have a habit of clicking links before I finish readingViruzzz 09:07, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Just went ot the site and it looks respectable and so until you start looking at their "about" part where they start going all "Wohay! we want you moneis so we can give you a game code because we are the bestest pals evar!" which at least would make me very very suspicous... --Winterbay 09:19, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I dunno anything about the site that is advertised in that comment, however I do know that the original PlayNC store allowed anyone who knew an accounts e-mail to jack it and change the password and completely prevent the legitimate owner from ever accessing the account. A-net and Gaile never publicized this (for obvious reasons) and it was fixed the very next day, still I am always extremely wary, as I had an account jacked in this manner .........

Family Guy[edit source]

Could the line that the guy says whivcch is something like "this is insert name, this is his tale, a possible reference to the episode of family guy where he explains the history. Link: 20:31, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

No.--AlariSig.jpg 20:54, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

reacquiring mission required weapons[edit source]

If you destroy Saul's Staff or other weapons required to do the missions can you get them back again to do the missions?

Yes, just ask for a copy of the story form historian and he'll give them to you. --AlariSig.jpg 06:46, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

The music from the pack[edit source]

One of the thing i really appreciate was the music from those quest, especially the one in the Saul story when they fight wave of charr with mursaat help. There are some unique music in this mission pack, and i ask if someone know how to get it if it is possible ? Like all over game, when we are a legal owner of a game, we have rights to download and use music from it as long as it is in a familial used and no copy. So, there would be a way to download or copy it on our pc in a .mp3 file right? Something have an idea with it ? ( i have thinking of over..well, not really legal way to get it in music download website, but these music from this special pack seems to be totally unfounding in internet). :s

Weapon Mods[edit source]

I was wondering if you added weapon mods, could it affect how u played. Cause when i was play turai's story, i had a vampiric turai's sword. During the whole mission, i had a infinite -1 health degeneration. Is this a bug? or does it just "buff" your weapons?

vampiric sword mod: gives you -1 health degeneration, steals 3 health per hit 14:54, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
