ArenaNet has added a new tab selection on your My Account screen for Guild Wars 2:  Link Accounts.  It is easy to link your accounts if you have not done so already, or to confirm the status of your accounts.  It will clearly tell you if your account is already linked or walk you through doing so.

  • Log into your account on the Guild Wars 2 website, then select My Account from the upper right hand corner.  
  • Select the Link Accounts option and follow the instructions found there.

I thought I would add this as the linking of account affects the username and pw to be used to log in.


Error Code 1038 x x x x
(example - 1038:11:4:1419:101)

"You are attempting to log in with an account that does not have Guild Wars 2 registered to it. Please register a Guild Wars 2 serial code to this account. For additional information, please visit"

Please select the option below that best describes your account:

I have linked my Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 Accounts

Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 use the same login information.
If you already play Guild Wars, and you linked Guild Wars 2 to your account, then you must log in to Guild Wars 2 and the forums using the exact same account information that you use to log in to play Guild Wars.
Example 1:
Email or Account Name: myaccount@ncsoft
Password: myGuildWarsPW
Example 2:
Email or Account Name: myemail@email.fake
Password: myGuildWarsPW
If your Guild Wars account has @plaync or @ncsoft in the account name and you need to reset your Guild Wars password, you can use the Login Helper on the Guild Wars site.
Please remember that resetting your Guild Wars password after linking to a Guild Wars 2 account will reset the password for both accounts.

I'm glad they got this worked out.
