Can you get more than one banner from Blazing a Trail story?

I was replaying the PoF story with a new character to see if I could get started in the other backpieces; I chose for the second time for Amnoon's allegiance, nothing happened. I received no banner from choosing a different path. So my question is: Can you only receive one banner per account? Or am I bugged?

    You have to complete it with three different characters to get all three banners.

    Each time offering a different recommendation to the council: Sunspears, Joke, or Neutral. And then each character has to complete the entire story (plus do a few other collection-related activities).

    Okidoki, so in order to get another of the aligned backpieces (joko/kormir/neutral) I have to do the entire story to receive the (in this instance) Kormir backpiece instead of the Amnoon one which was my first play through choice. :anguished:

    Yeah, it requires more of a time investment than most collections. However, it compares favorably to other collections/achievements that also reward ascended gear.

    Yes, you're right!

  • This is such Bull kitten on ArenaNet not allowing us to redo the mission to make a different choice. Since I already made the choice on my 9 characters, none of which chose Sunspear I cannot complete the achievement Raise the Banners: Sunspear Support. So either delete one of my nine characters or purchase another character slot, raise the character to 80 to select a different choice. That is total BULL kitten!

    So... You did the story on nine characters before checking achievement requirements? And this is ANet's fault, somehow...?

    One would think, out of 9 characters, you'd select 1 of the 3 story alignments atleast once. :confused:
    Story rewards have always been awarded once per character. I don't see this changing because of this folly.
    One would also think that using the achievement panel for checking on these sorts of things would be common sense.
    Your only option would be to make a new character to get the remaining collection done. (Please do read the notes on that Wiki page.)

    Better get a wriggle on.
