I'm not much of a hardcore fan, so I haven't been following GW2 news. In fact, I only just learned about HoM rewards yesterday. It wasn't like the link to the HoM information was gigantic and stuck out enough to grab my attention, so only pure luck led me to viewing it.
I have all of the expansions for the original Guild Wars, but very few achievements. I also have some fairly decent characters built, so any achievements I may need should be attainable. My main character has about 55 platinum. I have no idea if that is a lot, or like typical MMOs where the economy scales so your "lots of money" one day is worth next to nothing a year down the road.
So, are the HoM rewards going to be like most other MMOs, where items you are given at level 1 are useless in 20 minutes of play? Are they purely cosmetic? Are they worth attempting to get in the short time left before the game releases? I know I can get them after release, but how much do you think you would play GW1 when GW2 is released?
Disclaimer for ultra-hardcore elitist snobs: Flame me for not knowing if you must, but realize that I have a life and it does not involve sifting through every tidbit of GW2 information.
