I recently started Guild Wars 2 and I cannot seem to get the Welcome Home quest to work. I have leveled up to level 9 doing basic environment quests but when I try to look at my personal quest, I cannot seem to activate it. I have completed Defending Shaemoor but the Welcome Home quest only has a title without any green emblem beside it.

I watched a couple of intro videos to the game and it seems like the quest should be active at all times.

    It could be that somewhat recent patches changed the level requirement for the next quest chain to level 10. They made it so you unlock a whole batch of quests every 10 levels instead of a single piece every 2 levels or so. Try leveling to 10 and see if it helps. – BlackVegetable May 9 '15 at 3:26
  • All you had to do was look up Welcome Home on the wiki, which says it's for level 10 (twice). – Amos M. Carpenter May 9 '15 at 4:27
  • Thanks, that was it. I skimmed through some older guides and watched some older videos - they must have been made before the change. I should have paid more attention to the Wiki. – user5668 May 9 '15 at 17:45

The update on the 9th of September 2014 introduced the new player experience, which changed the progression of the personal story from a continuous experience to a discrete one (e.g. unlock story arcs every 10 levels).

Therefore, you will get both your mail and your first personal story (after the introduction) on level 10.
