    Is it just me, or is this thing pretty quest-sparse? Like, I'll round up a good dozen, do them, and then have one or two in my log for a good few hours. I just finished dragging that chick through the dig site, carrying stone tablets around and such. Am I just before a major hub or something?

    Wait, how do you get free tournament points.

    talk to tolkano in great temple and he gives them to you

    Gonna assume that since I had prophecies since launch I don't count. That stinks.

    it's worth a shot :P
    might give them to anyone who never participated in the monthly tournaments

    It should work. I've had Prophecies since launch, and I didn't have any problem getting the points. I think it's as long as you didn't register previously for the tournament system.

    Aw, tried this last night. Got zero points for registering. I had pvped at launch, but had never registered for the tournament.

    Did you talk to High Priest Zhang?

    Woo, 60k get! thanks.
    Funny, had instant tells at 60k, but at 70k I got instant "OMG NOOB THATS 7k EA LOL"

    The game doesn't really deal with hubs as such. There are a lot of quests and you'll get to max level in 20 hours, but don't expect a city with 10 NPCs with exclamation marks above their head. The best thing to do is to explore a little. There's a deed for mapping out the whole continent anyway. You will run into plenty of quests along the way while doing that.

    Yeah, the Corporal Bane missions were pretty good. They're repeatable, too, if you're still trying to max out the Vanguard title.

    I ragequited again today. Thanks for the kind words in guildchat. Next time I'll need someone's help to complete this. I'm so very frustrated with the game right now. It's just cheating with handing you a mission of over an hour and make the last boss a double pull with a lot of ranged mobs.

    I started plotting out my hom points to try and make 30. Hoo boy there is such a massssssssive spike in difficulty after 20. Gotta hurry up and finish nightfall so I can buy factions and begin building my op hero team. Then farming for armor money and hero armor upgrades...

    If I wasn't worried about burnout, I might roll a rit alt specifically to farm underworld to feed my main the cash I need to fuel more HoM points. They're just so, so, so much better than every other class in the game. (Which continues to worry me just slightly about GW2, since they haven't shown much talent for balancing classes so far.)

    I think I am going to dust off the old rit I have for said endevour. He's 20 and has most of the skills I'd need already. After a day of running "Crazy Entaru's wholesale liquidations" I need another source of income.

    Edit: I'm not too terribly worried about gw2 because what happened with gw1 was really that the skill base became to large for a group of humans to rightfully balance so at some point they just gave up on PvE balance. That's part of what the new game is designed to combat.

    They're still pretty squishy.

    Though with a decent hero build carrying you through most of the game, that shouldn't really be a problem I suppose.

    28 points, just need 1 weapon now to put me at 30. And that means doing war in kryta.

    So I've been infected with the GW2 fever. And naturally I want all the goodies that come with playing the original game, HOWEVER

    I've never played it, and from what I gather it would take a fuckton amount of time to go from 0 to 30 HoM points.

    Is this true?
    Can I find the full set for cheaper than $40? (this is on amazon)

  • DraygoDraygo Registered User regular
    It will take quite a bit of time but you can get a lot of points just finishing each campaign, and guild wars beyond quests.

    Alt-tab makes the whole game lag like hell for me. Like, unplayably so.

    I found the full set for $30 at gamestop, but I've never heard reports of anyone else accomplishing it. I got to about 25 points in twoish months.

    This. Although if I do it, and then experiment with minimizing/re-maximizing I usually can get it to return to normal.

    Yea

    changing zones also tends to fix it.

    it's a pain in the rear end, though.

    That guide is a bit out of date on costing. Vabbian armor requires 14 rubies and sapphires, which are selling for about 8 plat each right now. Cost on Vabbian armor's gemstone requirement alone is more around 300k right now, rather than the 112k listed. @Bethryn

    You don't need the helmet, but somehow I cocked up the calculations and did half the price; it's 224k, not 112k. Cheers.

    Thanks, that is helpful in that I dont have to go running all over the wiki over and over till I memorize it. Its a lot of info to force yourself to learn 4 campaigns worth of content in a month. Now I have a nice little place to refer to alll in one page.

    Oddly enough I did exactly what the guide recommends for progression early. Started nightfall for heroes went to eotn asap rushed to the tourney asap and made it to the final fight on my own 2 out of 3 times before getting all the heroes from it, mainly xandra. I woulda made it through 3 times but I ran into dwayna form melonni without an enchant removal and the fight was never going to end :(. However if you dont have factions there isnt much you can do with her. im using the nighhtfall heros anyway to make sure they hit 20 first. I plan on buying factions very soon anyway (tonight prolly) so that wont be an issue anymore.

    Best way to get balth faction is to do the training arena twice a day a you make your way through the campaigns. You can get 2k daily from this. That should get you those elites btu the time you finish the campaigns unless you rush through them like crazy.

    those areas for farming are good though. I plan on seeing how far I can get soloing this shizz.

    Note: You can buy skills for your heroes for expansions you don't have using hero skill points. There's a bunch of Nightfall guys who train those, plus a guy in the HoM/
