Basic Info
Campaign: Eye of the North
Type: Explorable area
Part of: Far Shiverpeaks
Eye of the North


The Hall of Monuments is an explorable area in Eye of the North that displays in-game player achievements and serves as a key location in the evolving storylines of EotN and Guild Wars Beyond. Achievements include acquisitions (of heroes, armor, weapons, and miniatures) and accomplishments (titles). The HoM can display progress for an individual character or for the entire account, by asking Kimmes The Historian to toggle the view.

ANet plans to add a Hall of Monuments to Guild Wars 2, which will tie the games together. There will be specific rewards to players in GW2 based upon 'account achievements in GW. (See the Guild Wars 2 official HoM FAQ for more details.)

Getting there[]

The Hall of Monuments is located North-West of Eye of the North.




  • NA-icon-small5 Rainbow Phoenix - Only appears when certain requirements are satisfied, please see the animal's article for further details.


Monuments are activated by using a Monumental Tapestry. The tapestry will then hang on the wall and display an artistic backdrop of the monument's achievements. Once individual submissions have been made, statues will appear in the monument's area depicting the submitted item.

  • Monument of FellowshipHeroes and animal companions (Displays 5 at a time.)
    • Both heroes and animal companions must be in your party to be added to the monument. Additionally:
      • All heroes must have received an armor upgrade (except for M.O.X., who has no armor upgrades).
      • Animal companions must be level 20 with a dire, hearty, or elder evolution.
    • Any animal companion will grant the generic "Animal Companion" statue.
  • Monument of DevotionMiniatures (Displays 20 at a time.)
    • Miniatures become dedicated when you display them in the monument. A dedicated miniature cannot be displayed in any other character's monument.
  • Monument of HonorTitles and Achievements (Displays 5 at a time.)
    • This is the only monument that does not require a monumental tapestry to activate.
    • It contains statues for completing a campaign, for earning titles, and for conquering elite areas.
      • The minimal rank for PvP titles is currently rank 6 for Hero and rank 3 for all the other titles.
    • As your rank in the Kind Of A Big Deal title increases, the floating figure in this monument becomes more prominent.
  • Monument of ResilienceElite armor sets (Displays 5 at a time.)
    • The complete armor set (excluding headgear) must be worn to add it to the monument.
    • The armor on the statues will be dyed the same color as the chest armor your character is currently wearing. The color will update whenever the monument is refreshed (add a new armor or rearrange the display).
      • If your current armor was dyed prior to the Nightfall dye update, the armor on the statues will be shown in the armor's default color.

Full Hall of Monuments[]

The Hall of Monuments is considered "full" when each monument is displaying the maximum number of viewable submissions.

The maximum number of viewable submissions at each monument are:

Completing the above, of course, does not stop you from adding as many entries to each Monument as you like, the older submissions will simply go out of view. You can "rearrange" the monument to see them again.

A Full Hall of Monuments will improve the appearance of the Monument of Honor by 1 rank, allowing you to obtain the Rainbow Phoenix at rank 1 of Kind Of A Big Deal instead of rank 2.

Anomaly Anomaly! For the purposes of acquiring the Phoenix, the Monument of Valor need only have 9 weapons (instead of the maximum 11).

Kimmes The Historian can switch the view of your Hall between character-specific and account-wide. It is possible to have a full Hall in the account-wide view, even if none of your characters have a full Hall by themselves.

Related Effects[]


Hall of Monuments[]

Note: Any abandoned or completed primary quest can also be regained at the Scrying Pool.


  • To dedicate an item to the Hall of Monuments, it must be equipped. After it is added, weapons will become customized, miniatures will be dedicated, but there will be no special impact on armor.
    • Discarding, trading, or switching an item to another character will have no effect on the displays in the HoM.
  • To switch between the character and account-wide view, speak to Kimmes The Historian, near the entrance.
    • Before submitting acquisitions or accomplishments, a character must display the relevant Tapestry.
    • Accomplishments for deleted characters will remain viewable in the account-wide display.
    • Dedicated armor that is not available to a given character will be displayed as a generic bronze statue in the Monument of Resilience.
  • You can reactivate and repair EotN quests by seeking Guidance at the Scrying Pool.
  • To show someone else your own HoM, you must be the party leader.
    • If the current leader maps out, the area will update to display the HoM of the new leader.
  • You cannot activate miniatures after you display 20 at the Monument of Devotion, which is the mini-pet limit for any explorable area.
    • Instead, you will see the message: "There are currently too many miniatures in this district. Please try later."
    • You can work around by displaying only a specific minipet group, which is usually less than 20.
  • After the meeting with Lieutenant Thackeray at a Wintersday event, he will visit hall to begin a series of dialogues with Gwen, eventually leading to his initiation of a scavenger hunt to help gather items for a picnic he plans at Gwen's Garden.
