The Eye of the North is an ancient, huge tower in the Far Shiverpeaks, with architecture matching that of no known species, and now in ruins. It is topped with a hollow spire, the uppermost part of which has always appeared to be either incomplete or broken off. The Eye contains two rooms—the main interior of the tower, which is large and empty save for ghosts and an asura gate, and the Hall of Monuments, which is full of statues commemorating the deeds of the long-dead hero who defeated the Great Destroyer as well as an ancient Scrying Pool.

The Hall of Monuments within is the reward system that allows players of the original game to access unique rewards for use in Guild Wars 2. Rewards include a full armor set for each weight, several pieces of list of non-set armor pieces, miniatures, and pets for Rangers. All items are free, and in addition, all skins can be applied for free via the wardrobe from anywhere in the game. Each new point the player earns unlocks a new reward, up until 30 points. Additionally, every 5 points unlocks a new title, all the way to the maximum, 50 points.

The reward system works by linking a player's Guild Wars account with their Guild Wars 2 account. While playing Guild Wars: Eye of the North, players can earn points by completing certain tasks, such as obtaining a rare mini-pet, or by completing campaigns. By linking their accounts at account.guildwars2.com, their points from Eye of the North are transferred to their Guild Wars 2 account, which unlocks the appropriate rewards in the Hall of Monuments. Players who have not played Guild Wars for an extended period of time may need to log in and talk to Kimmes the Historian in order to complete the account link.

Getting there[edit]

  • The Eye of the North can be reached by using a Hall of Monuments Portal Stone.
    • Players who have already linked their accounts will have a Hall of Monuments Portal Stone in their mail whenever they create a character. Portal Stones can also be purchased for free from Sarettokk within Hooligan's Route in Lion's Arch. Sarettokk sells stones even to players who don't have their accounts linked to a Guild Wars account, as such these players can also visit the instance, though will naturally be unable to access any of the rewards.
  • When in the zone version of the Eye of the North, interact with the Scrying Pool and choose the "View the Eye of the North before your friends arrived here." option.

Reward revocation[edit]

Access to Kimmes the Historian was disabled for nearly five months from mid-March to the end of July in 2015, after a bug was introduced which awarded players with Hall of Monuments achievements (and their associated titles and points) without having earned them. The fix that was eventually implemented was to have the game dynamically determine at every login whether the account should be credited for the achievements.

Ever since this fix, some accounts may occasionally receive the mail below and find that their achievements, but not rewards, have been revoked. This is caused when server issues interrupt the link between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, and is a harmless, temporary issue that can typically be ignored until it resolves itself.[1] If the problem persists, speaking with Kimmes and/or following the steps outlined in the notes section below should fix it.

Affected accounts receive the following in-game mail:

LOR-748 Title-Issuing Error


My records indicate you are one of the recent recipients of the title "God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals."


However, I have some unfortunate news. Your title was the result of my golem, LOR-748, believing you earned the honor and issuing this esteemed accolade. Now, there's no way my golem made any sort of miscalculation, which means there is only one explanation: the Eternal Alchemy itself is wrong.

To clarify, the illegal modifications I made to LOR-748's title-issuing program had absolutely nothing to do with this title-issuing mistake.

In an effort to remedy this error—again, not mine—your title and any other unearned Hall of Monuments rewards must be revoked. This is regrettable, but the Alchemy is a living thing that, if not corrected, corrects itself—and no one wants to leave this up to the uncaring universe. This reversal will also keep the Arcane Council from incarcerating me until, as they put it, "your bones turn to dust."

Scholar Aiti.



  • The point of interest here does not count towards map completion.
  • Since the Hall of Monuments is an instance, gliding and mounts are disabled.
  • If you do not see your rewards being offered by Kimmes, the following solution has fixed the issue with some accounts:
    • Log back into Guild Wars 1 and speak to Kimmes in your Hall of Monuments.
    • Toggle your hall display between character-wide and account-wide.
    • Return to Kimmes in Guild Wars 2.
