1. if you own all 3 chapters (Prophecies, Nightfall and Factions) and you want to experience all chapters, is there any point in going through all chapters with only 1 character as opposed to creating a character for each chapter? I mean do you get any rewards/skills/anything for going with your Prophecies character through nightfall?

2. On this page you talk a lot about skills being unlocked. Does that mean that when you activate another chapter let's say factions, you can buy those factions skills for a trainer forums in ascalon for example when you login with your Prophecies character?

Thank you
1: the character created in a chapter gets the most rewards from that same chapter, as the character will go through tutorial quests which most of the time grant you money/items/skills as a reward. If a character then leaves his chapter of origin, he can only do the quests from a certain point on in another chapter (but those are still a lot of quests). He can do all the missions though, but those do not give you skills or item rewards.
There are titles though that a character can try to achieve, such as the "protector" title for completing all missions of each chapter, so that might be a reason to do all chapters with one character. But skill/item/gold-wise, you get more rewards doing a chapter with a character made in that chapter, but again, only from tutorial quests. after that, it's all the same for any character.
So all in all it doesn't really matter. Just create some characters in different chapters, play through the tutorial quests of each chapter at least once, and later on go play anywhere you like.

2: Skills form a certain chapter are only available in that chapter. There are core skills, which you can get in all 3 chapters, and chapter skills you can only get there. But once unlocked on your account, all your heroes can use them, and any character you create can learn them using skill-tomes (which are random drops, and can be bought from other players).

Definately Get Nightfall

Overall, its the best of the three for a beginner. Sure its not a very slow start like prophecies is, but it will allow you to create a powerful/wealthier character, and opens up more titles for you to achieve.

You will get heroes to help you, which prophecies does not have (which sucks) and also, generally the game is alot more fulfilling. -- it gives you plenty more gold/rewards and experience. And the dervish is an awesome profession.

Another thing to like about Nightfall is that Kamadan is the #1 marketplace in Guild Wars, Followed by Lions Arch. (I don't even think kaineng is considered 1).
And it allows you access to alot more elite skills for your characters than the other two games.

CONS:

Most celebrations are held in Cantha (Factions) - And I think that is all.
And if you're a female - Most character creation isnt very .. err.. Aesthetic. (opinion) END OF CONS

But Yes overall, for a beginner it will supply you with the most tiems such as a minor vigor rune, alot of gold, packs and pouches, kits and other things that you can trade your battle commendations for.

Definately Nightfall.

Cantha has the Dragon festival. The others have everything else.

Thanks!

Supposedly the US is only going to get the "Guild Wars Trilogy" release. I don't know much about it but it only includes Prophecies, Factions and Nightfall, no EotN.

If thats the case what are the odds I can pick up the version from across the pond and use that key? I would have to work out if it would be cheaper in the end but knowing the option is there would be great.

You said "get back in to it". Do you already have an account? If you still remember your login info, you still do have an account.

Talking hi im new to the forums?

I think that factions is a very hard story line to follow and there is not many people in factions. I have factions EOTN and nightfall and getting propices today. I head proficies is very good. I am currently making a d/m because my ranger/e wasn't very good and he was also in factions!

Guild Wars Trilogy is currently selling at Amazon for $47 with free shipping. There are a few Ebay auctions and the last one sold for under $40. GWEN goes for $15-$20 on Ebay.

Yeah guild wars trilogy is a great buy, the only real question to ask now is which order should you play them all in and my vote still goes with prophecies, it has the original guild wars learning curve, which should help most new players.

Plus you will save a load of in game money in prophecies when it comes to skills because for the mesmer, monk, ranger, warrior, elementalist and necromancer you get most of the skills for free in prophecies...

That depends. You can buy the Trilogy, which is all the areas except for GWEN, for a little more that each individual area. It pays to buy whole game. It's an online game, only.

It might be best to start the game in Prophecies to learn the basics. I stopped playing for a while after Prophecies and got Nightfall, second, then Factions. I'd still play it that way if I was just starting.

You can play any of them at anytime. I recommend starting with Prophecies simply for the story line. If you aren't really driven to experience the whole story then by all means start with which ever one you want.

I would say start with Nightfall, or EOTN for the Heroes. Heroes are a great help, and I personally think they are superior to henchies. Plus, I like the Nightfall storyline.

If you want to play as a ritualist, or Assassin then you will have to play Factions. Out of all the campaigns I find Factions the hardest for some reason.

I'm not sure how much all the campaigns cost together since I bought mine whenever a new one came out.

The order I recommend playing would be

1. Prophecies (Great storyline, and good place to learn the ropes)
2. Nightfall (Heroes are the shizzle!)
3. Factions (great PVP, and some really nice skills too!)
4. Eye of the North (I feel it's made for a more experience guild wars gamer)
