Warriors exclusive set?[edit]

How comes Warriors get their own exclusive set? Are there no Eagle versions of other professions? 05:09, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

We are waiting on an answer from Gaile or Emily about that as far as I know. It does kind of suck that they get an extra set and no one else does. :( - BeX iawtc 05:10, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
I think the Eagle armor is the best so far...the other 4 types are meh for dervish anyway, vanguard is so-so.... hope they release some more armor sets... Every few days more and more armor gets added so there is hope ^^ 06:17, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
(late answer, i know) but thats kinda stupid...warriors seemed to have no elite templar armor (one less as every other profession) in prophecies, as they had headpeaces as the only class. now there is a templar armor for warriors, also an elite headpeace for the gladiator armor and now even another complete warrior only set...wth?! or am i wrong? Zerpha The Improver 18:52, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, you are wrong :P Anet added the Elite Templar Armor and the Elite Gladiator's forgotten helmet. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: .

He was talking in past tense - warriors used to have one less set and missing headgear, and then Anet added them as well as this set. - BeX iawtc 23:13, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
I think this is one of the ugliest armor "sets" out there. *barf* az :D 20:09, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
For females, I don't like it. Besides the helmet, I really like it on males. RitualRitualistDoll 10:07, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
IMO this is the best armor for war females. Especially if you dye it black.-- 22:26, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Monument of Resilience[edit]

I'd like to know if anyone managed to show their Silver Eagle armor on the monument yet... I could put on my Asuran armor there but the silver eagle simply won't go. Does anyone knows why? 07:09, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Friend of mine is having same problem with some rit armor... Probably just a bug... [~ Reaper ~] 17:10, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
The "Dwarven" armor is not considered a set, more stand-alone pieces, and is therefore not possible to add to the HoM. My guess is, with the Silver Eagle armor, it cannot be added to add fairness for other professions, which do not have this set. - anja talk 17:19, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Go figure. The most expensive EOTN suit won't go into the HoM. 20:59, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
I added my silver eagle armor no problem. Sagron 21:16, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Oh, bummer, well anyway, i got the Silver Eagle with the helmet thingy, i'll put the pics here if that's of any help (apologies but i'm very noob to this wiki thing and i have no idea on how to edit things and stuff like that) [1] [2] [3] I also got the asuran armor with the helmet as well (not the glasses), i'll post it there 22:44, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I'll add your pictures to the gallery. :) - BeX iawtc 01:59, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

now this pisses me off[edit]

after finding out that warriors got an extra armor set, i got pissed, very pissed. i can't put my dwarven ranger armor in HoM, but warriors can? This is really fck'd up A'net. warriors already get the most skills in pre-searing and got more elites then other proffesions. Its almost like you guys say "go play wammo or you won't get cool armor." If you give this kind of stuff to warriors, then at least let met get armor on my White Moa Bird!!! and not just some stupid Pet controls that are practically the same as the hero control panel. And while i'm at it, why are so many bosses warriors, its not like they're half of the proffesions around. There are 9 other proffesions, but still there are way more warrior bosses then monk bosses, or mesmer bosses. And of course i'm currently not talking about normal Mobs that are warrior, because that's more then 10% as well. Rhydeble 08:18, 29 September 2007 (UTC)\

Hello have you every seen an ancient battle depiction. 90% percent of all people are "warriors." -- 21:27, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Lol, "Real battle depiction" hmmm in real battle i don't recall people bieng able to throw down meteor showers or make spirits kill me. Roflmaomgz 19:50, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

No. You're wrong, purely and simply, Silver Eagle was a fogtotten armor set that was added into the game in GW:EN. Warriors have Dwarven armor, afaik, AND Silver Eagle. Dwarven armor is not supposed to be able to put into HoM. - UserDrago-sig.gif Drago 21:29, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
And there are just as many other bosses, I think your just raging because you don't get 1 lousy extra armor set. As Firefox would say, QQ moar. - UserDrago-sig.gif Drago 21:31, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
are there as many bosses? the only proffesion with more bosses is elementalist, especially the assasin, ritualist, dervish and paragon proffesions have les then a third of the amount of warrior bosses.Rhydeble 17:15, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Warriors do get better things then everyone else, you can't even argue it. — Skakid9090 17:28, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
indeed they do, think crystalline sword. what other things not for warriors come close to the price of a perfect crys sword? -Firestorm2 19:01, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Since the market for "caster" weapons is pretty high you can't say one handed warrior weapons are exclusive to warriors really, other proffesions use them as well. Warriors cannot use a wand nearly as effectively as a monk can use a sword. Lyra Valo User Lyra Valo LVsig.jpg 18:42, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
Seriously, stop bringing up the fact that non core professions dont have as many armor sets as the core ones, OF COURSE THEY DONT! How could they have the same number without adding many more armor sets to the campaign that that profession is from (do it that way so that the armor levels stay even, for those who dont know)? Then, suddenly you have people who dont have every campaign complaining because the non core professions would get many more sets than it would be possible for the people lacking a game or two to have. And dont bring up that ANet could add armor for the factions and NF professions in Prophecies, because that would be wrong. ANet already messed it up by adding weapons for them in the end game area, no matter how you put it, adding those weapons messes up the timeline for Prophecies. They're suddenly getting weapons for professions that DONT EXIST YET, there are (as far as I've seen) no references between Prophecies and the other two campaigns, so as far as they would know is that there are only the core professions. And just a little side note; how do the Deldrimor dwarves know how to make non core class weapons, they have no interaction with them until EotN? 04:33, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
The Prophecies continent of Tyria is physically connected to Elona. and Nightfall Takes place before Prophecies, As Kormir is mentioned as a god in Prophecies, no? also, players with both the Prophecies and Nightfall Campaigns may acsess the continents via a portal operated by one of the Forgotten. 23:55, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
Prophecies does NOT take place before Nightfall. Rather, Nightfall takes place about 5 years after the conclusion of Prophecies. It is possible for there to be knowledge of Paras and Dervs in GW:EN, but not necessarily so in Prophecies. Cantha and Tyria did have diplomatic and trade relations prior to the Guild Wars, so having knowledge of Sins and Rits would be possible, even if no Tyrian residents practiced those professions.
Once correction to that, Cantha and Kryta have diplomatic ties and trade rights, and Krytans have nothing to do with the Dwarves. As to Tryia being connected to Elona, yes it is, but look at the traveling record. NO Tryians went to Elona from that path (as far as has been revealed), the only Elonians who went that way were Ossa's army, who died out pretty quickly, and Kahmu (or at least I assume thats how he got to Nornland) There are no living humans in the Crystal Desert, so theres no chance of derv and para weapons getting found there and remade, it is inhabited by the Forgotten, who, unless I'm mistaken, most people believe are myths if they have any knowledge of them at all 17:55, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
If you had read the little book that comes with nightfall or even are actually interested in the lore. you would have known that Istan is a trader nation and that their ships travel all over the world. Wich means also to cantha and tyria. Also elona would have been discovered a lot earlier because before the jade wind the luxons didn't just sailed on their sea. their turtles and leviathans also wore sea-worthy traveling and trading with other continents, if thy could travel to tyria then they could travel to elona. and last vabbi => merchant princes. I don't think istan fisherman and kournan famrers and soldiers need luxury products like cushions of harpy feathers stitched with rubys, saphires and diamonds or something like that? And i'm sure harpys don't really apreciate that either. The canthan emperor on the other hand ... Rhonin Soren 15:11, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

GW2 Benefits - Brace for Impact?[edit]

It's a widely held belief that each and every item added to the HoM will, in some way, provide a benefit to a character in GW2 (this belief is based mostly, as I understand it, on official documentation that, while vague as usual, does seem to strongly hint at it). Now, assuming this is in fact true, isn't this a kick in the teeth for everyone who doesn't have access to this armor (read: non-Warrior profession players)? If Silver Eagle armor is going to provide some sort of benefit in GW2, then logically, some sort of equivalent should be added for every other profession, even if it's not armor. There are those of us who really would rather not have to roll a PvE character we don't enjoy playing, so that we can grind a title we don't enjoy grinding, to spend gold that we could (and would) rather spend on something we enjoy doing on an armor set just to be on equal footing when the next game churns out of the design pot.

I hardly expect something to be done about this, but I'd like some sort of official information on the usefulness of Silver Eagle armor in the HoM, be it short term, or long term. Faer 10:44, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

It's been mentioned that the bonuses from the HoM will not give you statistical benefits, they'll all be luxury bonuses (fancy skins, minipets, titles, etc). No need to worry about being on an "equal footing" in GW2- if the HoM gave stat advantages that would be extremely unfair to the players who don't own GW1 at all.
And while you're on the subject of numbers of armors, paragons and dervishes have only 8 armor sets each, while the core professions have 15-17 each. So, Silver Eagle is hardly the only inequality armor-wise. 03:40, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but what does it say about warrior in the lil book that comes with the game say ? i think it says something to the just of Mightiest of the mighty and MASTERS of ARMOR. hey this is a skill based game and the warriors greatest asset is and always will be his/her armor. so what there one more xtra armor set for wars, thats how we roll. We can look pretty and you can sit way over there and cast SS, Empathy, Price of Failure and Reckless Haste. -Unsigned-

Then give the other classes something else to buy there. If not armor then maybe a customized weapon crafter which will give us similar weapon to the /bonus benefits. I'd be saying this even if I was a Warrior user. It is unfair to have things unbalanced. Skills or otherwise. Kairu 00:32, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Rits, Assassins, Paragons and Dervishes don't have as many armor sets as other classes. Even if they did it's highly unlikely the original six classes will appear in GW2 let alone the extra 4 so any class to class bonuses wouldn't pass over anyway. 04:37, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

To the person above me, are you honestly saying that Anet would get rid of Warriors,Elementalist,Rangers,Necromancers and Mesmers?... Those are the FOUNDATION of all Medieval Based games. Sure ive heard that Anet has other class idea's. eg Chronomacers (Magicians of time) But what else could they add? Rockarrios (Fighters with Heavy armor who can throw rocks at amazing speeds!!!) lol

I haven't read much on HoM in GW2, but has anyone considered that the benefits will be from completing a monument? for example, getting 5/5 in the Resilience (5 pieces of armor)? Just a thought. -- 13:45, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

So I herd..[edit]

.. this armour is armour from the prophecies betas which never got added. Makes sense. — Skuld 03:29, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

that means the primeval headpiece got inspired by this, not converse. There are not contingent beta models or similiar for the other classes Anet wants to add to the game to complete the list? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 22:17, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
this and that looks similiar, but not equal. did this armor become remodeled? (btw, the shield this guy is wearing is a bit weird, yet uber!)ZerphatalkThe Improver 19:30, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

How come silver eagle armour has little pieces missing it sucks and looks terrible

You're a warrior, you have +20 vs physical, where's the bug? 0.o --User rayd sig.pngRayd 20:32, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Those aren't Sentinel's modded. Sentinel's is +20 vs. elemental. The +20 vs. physical is normal for warrior armor, so it looks like you have a clean set. --Valshia 20:35, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
O.o Ok then false alarm... never realized it came with that... Ashes Of Doom 20:36, 28 January 2008 (UTC)


Just because only warriors can add their "Dwarven" armor to the HoM does not mean that only warriors can get benefits in GW2 from the armor. I don't think ANet has said anything about this: when you link a character to a HoM...that character must be the same profession as the character who created the HoM.

So, therefore, everyone can benefit from just have to create a warrior in GW1 and add the armor to that dont' necessarily have to create a warrior in GW2.-- 20:45, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

As they ae planning (or so they say) to merge all HoMs on each account, all you need to do is add this amor to the HoM on your warrior to recieve the account-wide benefits (whatever they are, dont expect to get the actual armor in GW2). Ashes Of Doom Talk 15:07, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

2 days to get this.[edit]

I made a warrior in Nightfall, levelled in factions to level 10, got to Gunnar's Hold, done kilroy's punchout untill level 20, done Vanguard Side and Norn Side in one day. The next day I did Asuran, HoS, DD and ATFH. I returned to Kodan in Gunnars Hold, who gave me 20k rep for my full Handbook and sent me on my way, I already had about 8-9k rep from the quests. 01:59, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Clipping Issues[edit]

My male warriors gloves clip through pretty much every shield I have. Should there be a note on it, or is it that big of a deal? Karate Jesus 17:15, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I think notes for clipping bugs are win, but no1's bothers with this armor anyway because it's ugly, especially compared to the artwork of it.-- 20:25, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Actually, it's not bad dyed black or red. But yea.... Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 20:26, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Between this top for my Female War or the Vabbian... Roflmaomgz 19:53, 8 November 2009 (UTC)


I'm not too sure how to make redirects so i'm just putting it out there that there should be a redirect link for "Silver Eagle" or "Silver Eagle Armor". Not alot of people would think to put Warrior infront :)


The screenshots of this armor are dyed Red. That is not the initial coloring of this armor. If someone could actually put up a SS of the initial color of this armor. I haven't gotten around to getting the other EotN sets so I don't know if the SS's of those are dyed Red as well or naturally come that color.

Why extra armor set for Warriors?[edit]

Why is it warriors have an extra set of ETON armor which be displayed in HOM and no other classes do? Wynterarwynrose 13:05, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Symbol of the Eagle[edit]

Has anyone else noticed that the eagle, the symbol of the warrior, has started from Pre-Searing (found on the Church of Ashford Abby) through EotN (City, found along the inner walls) and into GW2 (shown in the cinematic trailer as the Gates of Divinity's Reach)? It makes sense why they made this armor. To those looking for balance between all classes.. you're never going to see it. Look at weapon sets, skills, items, etc. Mesmer is missing an elite. Poor Paras and Dervs have the fewest skills because there's no way to fuel newer skills in other expansions. Mesmer obtain exclusive items in Gwen's quests in EotN. So stop complaining and just go with it. (And to note about multiple remarks above, adding armor to the HoM shrines doesn't give you multiple bonuses in GW2 but rather 1 bonus type item (weapons/armor/mini/tile/etc) when you fill the monument up (5+ armor sets). Magic User Magic Icon.jpg Talk 06:20, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I don't think they ever released such information regarding the HoM yet. --Kyoshi (Talk) User Kyoshi sig.png 07:14, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
As Kyoshi has stated there has been no final word on what exactly a trophy will equate to in GW2. For all our knowledge it could be 1 trophy equals 1 reward, or it could be rewarded on how many statues per monument we have. All that has been said is that any reward does not make your character superior to any others. --Decoinferno 15:51, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Concept art looks way better[edit]

Who else agrees it would have looked much better if it looked more like that? Lolwho 04:13, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, they went a bit mad with the red. Would of looked much better with less trim. Kotoa 17:53, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes, and the Female armor looks about 10x worse. -sigh- The male armor looks fine, but no, just gotta show that cleavage.--Vulpes Foxnik 04:30, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Looks like Utopian style of armor[edit]

Just a thought…though irrelevant. I mean, this armor (at least, the male version) looks like a westernized kind of dress that Meso-American cultures would have worn, possibly even Cahokian civilization (which is centered in Illinois/Missouri area). Could it have been something from Utopia? Just wanna hear y'alls opinions. Taka Ragranok 18:20, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Exactly my first thought as well, even more "confirmed" (I don't mean in the official sense) by the concept art. I think this clearly was meant to be an armor design for Guild Wars - Utopia. 10:59, 23 January 2011 (UTC) Lokharte
