Accessing the bonus missions
The Bonus Mission Pack has been enabled for those players who made qualifying purchases in the online store during the Bonus Mission Pack promotion.
- To access the Bonus Mission Pack missions, speak to Durmand [Historian] in any of the major port cities: Lion's Arch, Kaineng Center, or Kamadan.
- For each mission, you will receive a book that tells the story leading up to the mission, along with any weapons your character will use during that mission.
- To launch the mission, equip any provided weapons and click the “enter mission” button found inside the storybook.
- The Bonus Mission Pack missions are all single-player adventures where you play as the characters from each storybook. You will become that character for the duration of the mission and your normal skill bar will be replaced with that character's set of skills.
- Upon completing a Bonus Mission Pack mission, you will be returned to the port city you were in previously or to your character's home port city. Your storybook will have three new pages added at this point, summarizing the events that occurred during the mission as well as the effect those events had on the Guild Wars world.
- With your completed book(s), you can either re-enter the mission to complete the discoveries, additional cash reward of 500 for each completion or you can take the completed book(s) back to Durmand to have the stories authorized. You can then trade in authorized stories to one of the four story scribes (located next to Durmand in each port city) for a customized weapon from the historic period you witnessed during the mission.
- You will still be able to keep the book in your Xunlai storage even after it has been authorized.
- You can also trade it between your characters on your account so they can also trade it to the scribes for a customized weapon.
- Completing each mission also unlocks “Discovery Mode” for that mission, adding three hidden, bonus goals for you to discover. For each bonus goal you complete, Durmand will give any one character on your account an additional authorized story. The additional stories can only be earned once for each account from discovery mode.
- Players can get as many BMP weapons as they desire by repeating the missions and authorizing books.
