Hall of Monuments Issue 06-09-2017

Last Post: Jun 09, 2017 15:35

Friday morning (Pacific time) we had a brief outage of Guild Wars (original) that caused a temporary desync between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. This impacted several players’ Hall of Monuments rewards. In fact, some players received notification via the Guild Wars 2 in-game mail system that said their Hall of Monuments feature was removed because they had acquired more points than intended. This message was sent in error and your rewards were not affected.

Here’s a workaround that should reset things so that your account is back to normal:

Log into Guild Wars (original)
Visit Historian Kimmes in Eye of the North and speak to him about your Hall of Monuments
Log into Guild Wars 2
Visit Historian Kimmes in Eye of the North and speak to him about your heritage

Doing this should re-sync your HoM rewards. But please note the following: It may take a few hours for the reconnection to take place. If after six hours you find that you still do have your Hall of Monuments rewards, please contact Customer Support for assistance.

Skill Queue Issues – 2017/06/09

After a script was run yesterday to address an issue with Ghost Training, we received a number of reports that some pilots had noticed their skill queues had been paused and their characters were not training.

The cause for this was identified as an issue with the script that was run, which didn’t behave as expected and has resulted in a significant number of pilots losing training time over the course of the last 24 hours. 

We’re currently in the process of applying a fix for this, which will identify all the affected accounts, and will automatically restart training for those who haven’t already logged in and done so.

Once this process has been completed, we will look to compensate all affected pilots in the coming days with a refund of skillpoints lost due to this issue.

Sincerest apologies for any confusion or inconvenience that this issue with training has caused!

Please feel free to continue discussion of this issue in this forum thread.
