Do I need to make a new account to play the original GW?


Recommended Posts

IIRC If you are playing Guild Wars 2 via Steam yes, if you are playing with an ANet account no? I haven't seen any Steam articles about transfers via Hall of Monuments coming to Steam so the latest source of information would be https://help.guildwars2.com/hc/en-us/articles/360053416353-Steam-FAQ

"No, Guild Wars 1 accounts cannot be linked to a Guild Wars 2 account that was created via Steam. If your Guild Wars 2 account was created via Steam, you will not have the option to link a Guild Wars 1 account within the Account Management page of your ArenaNet account.

However, if you have a Guild Wars 1 account that was created via Steam, you will be able to link it to an existing [non-Steam] Guild Wars 2/ArenaNet account that was created via the Guild Wars 2 website. Steps on how to link to an ArenaNet account can be located here."

I think you still need to "create new account" in GW1 first.  Then use the same email address and password as your GW2 account.  It should link automatically then.

Not Steam. I bought it from the ANET store while logged into my GW2 account. I tried logging in with my GW2 credentials but that didn't work. I'll try the "create new account" path and see what happens. Hopefully it links up correctly.
