Which GW1 version to buy?

So I’ve really been wanting to play guild wars 1 and get a better understanding of Elona, Cantha, characters like Joko and generally all the lore related to the games. I wasn’t sure where to post this but my question is what version of the game should I buy? After searching a few other posts I found that my two options are from steam (where I’ll have to buy the trilogy and EoTN separately) or a German website where someone speculated i could be placed in a EU server by doing so. I was thinking of buying it from steam just cause I trust the store and have experience with it, but I also want to know if I’ll get the Hall of Monuments rewards as well by doing so since I’d rather not miss out on that added bonus.

    Trilogy and Platinum.

    Agreed:

    • Trilogy has the original three campaigns (plus some extras): Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall
    • Platinum has the original campaign (redundant, alas) and the expansion (Eye of the North) (plus some extras).

    Between the two, you get the best bang for your buck and access to everything.

    @Illconceived Was Na.9781 wait so platinum has the campaign that is also included in the trilogy?

    Other than that thanks for the replies guys that’s just what I’ll do. :)

    Platinum has Prophecies.
    However, there's no longer any way to get EotM without also buying one of the original campaigns. The alternative to @Ayrilana.1396's suggestion is to buy Platinum (Proph + EotM), Factions (basic), and Nightfall (basic). That's more expensive than buying Trilogy & Platinum (and you'd typically end up with fewer of the extras).

    Yes, Platinum has Prophecies and EOTN. Trilogy has Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall. So yeah, you'll technically end up getting Prophecies twice, but it's still the best way to go about getting all of the campaigns and the expansion.

    Oh look. I have a signature now.
