Good Morning, Kourna!

August 13, 2008

I learned a few things recently in Guild Wars which could certainly enforce the feeling of Newbie rank. The heroes one can play in Nightfall campaign do have specific professions. But in the same way as players they can have secondary professions as well. However, I had not figured out how to get a secondary profession for a hero, so I just assumed that some quest will appear at some point that will allow me to pick a secondary for the heroes.

But at point when I looked on the skill and ability view to set up the skill bar for the heroes, I did notice for the first time that the profession indication for the hero actual was a drop down list. And when selecting it all the different secondary profession options did appear! That was simply too simple….

Continuing the exploration of the hero views I also for the first time actually noticed that the inventory view also contained the heroes, not only myself. Switching the views I noticed that I could replace the weapons of my heroes, which up to this point had been of … starter quality. Putting a bit better weapons in there should maybe make them a bit more efficient.

My necromancer has continued the adventuring in Kourna, although the Kournan military seems all to happy to intercept. I did learn that one of my heroes, Koss, was of Kournan origin but had a fallout with his father when he decided to join the Sunspears. Koss isn’t really the sharpest tool in the shed, but he means well. So helping him and his family a bit seemed a good thing to do.

Last Tuesday also meant Tuesday Noob Club activities and this time it was focus on helping each other with missions and quests. With two of us being relatively new, NNs (Noobier Noobs) and IoAs (Ignorant of Acronyms), our current progress set an effective limit on what everyone could team up to do together. So we started off with a bit of Centaur Rescue and Kournan Beat-Them-Up.

AS the evening progressed more people joined and we were too many for a single team, so thus a split was made with us NNs getting back to Kourna with some of the NlNs (No longer Noobs) joining as well.

This resulted in a successful effort to rescue our former Sunspear boss from a Correctional Facility in Kourna, some general butt-kicking of Kournans and a bit of DiC (Demonslaying in Caves).This resulted in arrival in Vabbi-land and some new cultures to embrace.

A quite enjoyable evening and good fun all around, which I hope also was the case for everyone else.

    Was a blast here too; been a while since I’d been through there, and had forgotten most of it 🙂

    And now you’re 20, the only real difference between you and the NlNs is a wider choice of Elite Skills to choose from, so it’s not exactly slumming it for us. Nearly got taken out by the archers at the far end of the caves! Good times.

    “Switching the views I noticed that I could replace the weapons of my heroes”

    You can also add insignias and runes to your heroes armor. It can become quiet expensive to deck your heroes out, but it is worth it in the end, as it makes your life so much easier.

    Good to know that I can add these also, did not notice that!

    I have a lot of them from dismantling a few items, so can use a few there. But it could certainly become quite expensive to equip all heroes for all characters.

    We have even started in EoTN to look for the “Heroes” armor. You can actually get “Prestige” style looks for your Heroes to make them look “unique”

    Awesome stuff there.

    We have done just that with Heroes though, equipping them all with runes and what not. We used “Collectibles” to get them max weapons, and then added inscriptions we ripped off of other weapons.

    This should keep us busy for another year I think.
