WTF.. I just got Vampiric String for my bow.. Shouldn't it be steal health 1 and health regen -1 on the Target? (not health regen -1 on user of bow)

I just got the Vampiric String for my bow and applied it.. Steal Health 1, and Health Regen -1.. I would think that both would apply to the target, but instead, the user is stuck iwth the health Regen of -1.. That doesn't make sense? Whats the point of having it then? the health regen -1 ont he user hurts more than steal health of 1.

Well it's sucking your blood, hence Vampiric. Works for me.

there's no death penalty in the begging of the game, second profession go talk to Armin by Tydus in Aschalon, then go find whoever you wanna take the profession from.

yes,, figure it already.. but thanks..

Dont know if this is the thread to share game tactics , but i think it will be a great idea to make a sticky post an Nvnews FAQ for Guildwars.. where people can use for reference. the same could be done for EQ2 or WOW.. with only the aswers to most of the questions of each game .


The manuscript that came with the game says something about weaponsmith.. perhaps im too early on the game to look for them..just curious where they are..

There are weaponsmiths early in the game. In Ascalon City, just look for the guy buy tents/carts...it will say "Weapons" by his name...there is also a "Craftsmen" there.

We might do a sticky...for now we'll just see how this new subform for MMORPGs works out.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I've played throgh Pre-Searing 3 times already, I'm starting to become a expert. I might type up a noob guide for the area. Give a few class suggestions as well [I've played around with Warrior + Most Secondary Professions].

Ok..
Im a warrior at level 6 but still at the begining of the game.. wanted to be armed ,very well protected and very strong before moving to the next Missions in the game

I was looking to mix Warrior with Rangers secondary.because i really like them. However i notice that the supposly advantage of rangers of distance is very weak at best.. because once i atack a monters.. they quickly comes closer enough to me ,to be at range for an atack ,and this is before i manage to fire a second shot.

So i was wondering if in more advanced levels the RAngers are really "snipers" that that can take advantage of their superior experience in long range atacks.. because otherwise the Bow will be useless to me.. and they are not as "fast" as the manual says.. the REdBull that is in lake at the begining of the game very quickly gets me,if i run away.. THe game is so balanced that it can ruin the gameplay at least in the ROleplay part of the game. since it can make unrealtic the battles ,because almost all foes in the game can atack you at long ranges. Even Those that walk in 4 legs.

ANy chance the rangers can fire their arrows at greater distance at more advanced levels ? perhaps i know the asnwer..but still have some hopes.. Anyone with a well developed Ranger ?

Also.. It is possible to drop or switch your second proffession later if you dont like it ,without losing your abilities in the first?

the class suggestions might be great idea .. but damn i really wanted to be a warrior /ranger .

Only way to get more range is use a longbow (or any "long" bow) Shortbows and half moons have poor range but fire faster.

Yes, eventually you can change secondary classes... but it is near the "end" of the game (missions wise). You even keep your original secondary skills (IF you decide to switch back to that profession... you can't use them if you don't have the profession).

And warrior/monk is pretty good. Take damage and be able to res. But if you need some help, feel free to message me (I will be under either Klaus Barnabas, or Dr Tobias Funke).

wow...this game got ridiculous after going through the searing. I've been getting my ass kicked left and right. I need a better sword and armor, but I have no money to buy iron ingots (you can buy them, but only in sets of 10 for 2220 or so) or any of the other crafting stuff and I don't know where to find any of them.

And I just hate teaming up with random people. I don't know why, but I do.

You know that you can bring along henchmen right? They are computer controlled party members that you can pick. They are near the portal exit before you exit out of Ascalon City. Tip, don't take more than you need...they split your gold and your experience points aren't as high per kill as if you did it solo.

Yeah, that's the reason I didn't want to get the henchmen. When I had them before--when they were given to me right away--I wasn't getting anything for a kill they made. I have to make the kill in order to get any loot or XP for it.

Sigh.
