lvl666blastoise asked: How long did it take to get 10/50? I've been toying with the idea of trying but I'd be a COMPLETE noob and I"m not sure if worth. Lol.
I spent 40 hours playing to get 10/50…
However, 3 of those points wouldn’t have been as easy and quick if I hadn’t played GW briefly when it first came out. I had several characters made and each celebrated 4-5 birthdays which meant 4-5 miniatures each. I got the 3 HoM points just for having 20 of those bastards (1 point for the first, 2 points for 20 minis total).
So getting 7 HoM points wouldn’t be too difficult, but it would take ~20-30 hours for a fresh player (e.g. a player with no money).
The rest of this is how I managed to squeeze out the remaining points if you’re interested:
Having all the campaigns (Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall, and Eye of the North) will immediately get you M.O.X., a hero that doesn’t need to be upgraded in order to be dedicated at the HoM. You can instantly take him to the HoM is for 1 point. This will require that you be level 10.
I started a new character to do this in the Nightfall campaign since I knew heroes would quickly be given to me. I used Ranger as my secondary class so I could level a pet the entire time. By the time I was 20 (the level cap), I had a pet that needed only 3 levels to be maxed out. While I worked on getting a few of my heroes upgraded, I maxed out my pet as well. After grinding Dajkah Inlet for Stolen Sunspear Armor, I had Koss, Dunkoro, and Melonni upgraded so they could be dedicated at the HoM. That meant 1 point for the ranger pet and 2 points for the five dedicated companions (the ranger pet, M.O.X., Koss, Dunkoro, and Melonni).
Lastly, having an account linked to Eye of the North meant a free 3 points to bring my total to 10/50.
If you want to get started:
Consulting the wiki is recommended if you’re looking to attempt a journey for HoM points. There’s a nice guide there, but some of it might be difficult to understand if you’re completely new to GW. Let me know if you have any questions. I might be able to answer some of them!
Ultimately, you’re going to have to invest some time. I really wanted that cat so I was motivated, but if none of the lower point rewards speak to you, it’s probably best to skip. Unless you really like playing GW, and then you just enjoy the game while earning some fun stuff for GW2.
I’m about halfway through Nightfall and now I’m super sad Elona’s not a setting in Guild Wars 2.
I’ve never played GW seriously until now, and I’ve got to say, it’s one of the better MMOs I’ve experienced. I originally played Prophecies, but I didn’t care for the game without heroes. I understand and I’m okay with not having heroes in GW2, but my husband can’t stand the thought of losing one thing Nightfall has that GW2 won’t…
i have 12 days remaining on swtor.
what do i play all night?

It was more Champions Online today, but no Vindictus. For some reason, Vindictus doesn’t want me logging on. Since the Nexon sites have been updated, I have a lot of trouble doing anything with Vindictus. I submitted a ticket, but… you know how that goes…
