Elite Tomes[]

How do I get an elite necromancer tome? I don't want to pay the 8.5k some people ask for them. Also, can tomes only be used for skills already available to you?

Tomes can only be used for skills that are already unlocked on your account. In hard mode, most characters have a (very small) probability of dropping a tome. ONLY bosses drop elite tomes, and other mobs drop normal tomes. The class of the tome will be the same as the class of the boss. Elite necromancer tomes are thus dropped by hard mode necromancer bosses, but with very small probability. My experience has been that I get around 1 elite tome per 50 or so hard mode missions cleared in the normal course of playing the game--and that one elite tome probably won't be of whichever class you want.
Realistically, if you want an elite necromancer tome and don't have one, the solution is to buy it. If you're unwilling to do that, just use a signet of capture to get the skill you want. That will probably be a lot easier than trying to farm an elite necromancer tome. Quizzical 02:59, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Tomes are generally more of use when you've already unlocked a lot of skills (the easiest way is via Alliance Battling with the resulting Balthazar points or, alternately, going after elites with the intent of gaining the Skill Hunter title on one character). It's generally worthwhile to get the Skill Hunter title, since that makes all the skills available for a "little" cash. I generally only use an elite tome to get an early elite for a new character, when the design requires a skill that isn't available to an early character due to the location of the nearest boss being deep in the game. Also, you will probably find that farming Luxon faction points by re-vanquishing Luxon areas (probably Kurzick, too, but I haven't done that) is going to net you a lot of spare skill points, as well as gold, both of which are relevant to gaining the Skill Hunter title. So consider doing that, alternating it with going after the skills.

ask a new question[]

The placement of the link is bad, it's partially obstructed by the middle spotlight banner. --Shadowcrest 03:35, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Not sure what you're talking about since I don't see any banners, but honestly that sounds like a badly placed BANNER not bad link. Stupid ads... --Gimmethegepgun 04:48, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Well the banners aren't moving, so the link has to. I use monaco. --Shadowcrest 14:01, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Has this been fixed? It's not obscured for me on Monaco on IE7 and FF3. --◄mendel► 14:43, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Nope, I still only see half the link. File:Ask a new question.jpg is what I see. --Shadowcrest 16:13, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh, but that looks as if giving it a colored (e.g. white) background would fix it. :) --◄mendel► 16:32, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Why are players getting away with BOTTING?[]

I've noticed alot of players recently getting away with using BOTS. I thought GW was really doing well till this point. I have gotten to the point of not wanting to play the game anymore, because GW'S admins. can't or won't do their jobs correctly.

Its another problem when all of us " Play by the rules " players have to endure the nerfing of skills because you all think its the easy way to control certain situations. Well, nerfing skills is not the solution, and as far as letting the players getting away with botting, if you would refresh yourselves with the GW policy, i do believe they should have their ACCOUNTS BANNED, not punished for 30 minutes, and allowed to return and BOT somemore.

Thanks for your attention in this matter, TENNESSEE TITANS

Do note that we here at GuildWiki are players just like you, there's nothing we can do about any of this except give you advice or opinions.
Worth mentioning; Guild Wars does not have admins (at least, not game staff wandering around looking for botters). There are a number of anti-bot codes in the game, but as you've already noticed, a good number of players figure out ways around these; if you do spot a bot (and you are sure it's a bot), you can report it yourself using the in-game menu (type /report <playername>, and select "botting" as the report reason). I'm not positive on the account banning policy (it's not public knowledge how they handle such accounts, as far as I know), but I'm pretty sure they get more then thirty minutes if reported for botting (and especially if they've been reported before).
As for nerfing skills, not much I can say on that. I personally don't mind it, since it's often made up for with skill buffs (a good number of nerfs are preceded by buffs, so they're technically only putting stuff back to how it was). -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 03:19, 30 June 2009 (UTC)


Any chance of considering rewording "This article is a central point where administrators can field questions by users. This does not mean only administrators can answer questions posted here—any user that feels they can help should chime in!", prehaps to "This article is a central point where users can answer questions about the game from other users...", or something. It seems a little elitist to put "admins" in the top. RandomTime 07:37, March 24, 2010 (UTC)
