Free HoT with Path of Fire Standard purchase question

Will I still get the free HoT expansion if I purchase PoF from Amazon?
I am assuming yes since it's an authorized retailer, but I want to make sure before buying it.

    They didn't specify in the stream. In your shoes, I'd simply wait a few days to see what happens.
    Alternatively, you could buy from Amazon and then submit a ticket to support if you didn't get upgraded, showing that your purchased after the announcement.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Quick update: it shouldn't matter where you buy Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire as long as you do it now (but depending on where you got it from, it may take a bit for you to get Heart of Thorns activated, full details to follow)

  • thanks for the quick clarification.

  • for those of us who already bought Path of fire like a month or two ago will we also get Heart of thorns added to our account?

    Yes

  • enjoying the post , i bought the deluxe editions on site Nuuvem day 23/8 as being an authorized one would receive such a refund in gems ?

  • Hi there! I bought GW2: PoF on this account for my son (I have all content unlocked on my own 7 yr old account). That was about 6 months ago. I was actually considering unlocking HoT so he could have gliding, but now when I click, it indicates it's free with PoF, and advises me to buy PoF.
    Which I obviously have.
    Will it be added retroactively? Suggestions?

    They said those of us who purchased PoF already but not HoT should see HoT unlocked on our accounts within the next week during the announcement this afternoon.

    To be fair, HoT and PoF were the same price, and HoT was actually more expensive through 3rd parties where PoF was regularly $10 off. They probably should have given PoF to HoT accounts, but only for a limited time and with the requirement of claiming it from within the game. It's unlikely those accounts are going to buy PoF at this point and it would have served more for getting people back into the game.

  • Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire - Standard was bought online in the web store 2 years ago (as an upgrade to Guild Wars 2: Digital Heroic Edition), without HoT on the account. Screenshot at the entrance to HoT: https://prnt.sc/p5m9na

  • That entrance won't open without doing the requisite Story Episode. What does the Story Journal look like?

    Wrong. HoT is not available on my account: https://prnt.sc/p5nryk

  • Not wrong. Even if you have HoT available, you can't go through that without doing the requisite HoT story Episode. Which is why I asked about your Story Journal, to see if you even had HoT available.

    As mentioned many times here on the forums, you will have to wait for a fix from the Devs. Maybe it will show up next Tuesday.
