The first time I entered the Hall of Monuments in Guild Wars 2, I nearly cried. This place is full of memories, literally, and the designers really seemed to pull out all the stops with this new reincarnation. The fact that they even had the Xunlai chests in the building as well as some of the NPCs from Guild Wars 1 in the building show's how much they really do care about nostalgia and appealing to the Guild Wars 1 players.
This place has barely changed and so seeing the reincarnation in such a manner is even more awe-inspiring. Not only will it bring a rush of memories back, but you can also see how much the graphics between the games have changed.
