Installing and retrieving your product key

Installation is automatic through the steam system, and it will begin the download when you have finished purchasing the game if you purchased it for yourself. To retrieve your product key for use with an existing Guild Wars installation instead, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your steam library, and right click the GW icon.
  2. Select properties, and select go to the Guild Wars site.
  3. Disable javascript on your browser and reload the page.
  4. Your key is in the URL of the webpage.

You can now create a new account using that key, either through the NCsoft website, or through the Guild Wars itself.
