If you were a devoted player of the original Guild Wars and the Eye of the North expansion, you’ve likely managed to accumulate your share of points from the Halls of Monuments offer. ArenaNet has posted a reminder to players to make sure that their Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 accounts are linked so that they can take advantage of their Hall of Monuments rewards at launch. The points earned from those Guild Wars adventures can be exchanged for exclusive weapon skins, armor and more in Guild Wars 2.
ArenaNet has provided a brief walkthrough of what you need to do in-game to ensure that your Hall of Monuments rewards are ready.
"First, you need to be sure you’ve established your own Hall of Monuments in Guild Wars: Eye of the North. That’s sort of a given, isn’t it? :)
Second, you need to link your Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 accounts.
If all that is in order, every character you create on your Guild Wars 2 account automatically will receive a special in-game item: the Hall of Monuments Portal Stone.
Simply activate the Portal Stone to transport yourself to the Eye of the North. Once there, speak with our old friend Kimmes the Historian (in his newer, slightly less-corporeal state) and he’ll show you a list of Hall of Monument reward items you have unlocked. You can select any of the items, at any time, for any character you make on your account.
Use the Hall of Monuments Portal Stone again to transport yourself (and your rewards) back to your former location. It’s that easy."
You can also check out what rewards your character legacy has earned with the Hall of Monuments Reward Calculator. If you need some help linking your account, be sure to check out this post and video to help with linking your Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 accounts.
