I agree

dunno if it's a bug, but it says "double click to read", but my character isn't reading it at all >_< --Talos of Flanders 05:13, 25 August 2007 (CDT)


yuh same got 1 drop... cant use it.... Necrid Popsicle 07:39, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

One guy I know was a winner of that freaky poem contest or something like that and got invited to party with A.net. They told him that in future it will be possible that players will be able to capture Charr's battle plans, strategies and other informations, so they can be prepared for incoming attacks in given outposts. He didn't remember if it was about GWEN or GW2, but since this thing appeared.. I guess it will be in GWEN. — Abedeus Sandstorm.jpg 13:27, 27 August 2007 (CDT)

I doubt it because what he's describing sounds like GW2 when they talked about instancing being different and things that players do affecting the game world and so forth. This is not going to happen in GW1, there is no existence of Charr events outside your active instance. At least as far as we know. --Karlos 00:23, 29 August 2007 (CDT)

You can open them now but they don´t make any sense to me

Has anyone tried a decryption program on the letters? based on most used characters and working down ex "e" is the most used character? ~Rud

I've just tried with the standard ceasar cipher and that gave nothing. However from the text it seems like T would be the encrypted letter for A since that is one of the two words in english that are spelled with only one letter and an I seems out of place. I will continue to poke at it and see if I can come up with something :) --Winterbay 09:55, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

someone posted an other encrypted text in an forum Maybe ther are different Battle Plans

If you are right and the T stands for A than its kind of strange that there are only 3 As in the hole text

It seems like each individual Battle Plans gives a unique "message". The one I have is completely different from the one pictured on the article. Although I haven't tried to decode it yet, I'm leaning towards thinking that it's actually just random letters, and to do anything useful with the Plans you'll have to visit an NPC somewhere. --Prospero 15:41, 30 August 2007 (CDT)

I got the same one as in the article. Foo 22:29, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
Maybe we must have all different Battle Plans versions to activate the quest?

Finding The Battle Plans

I picked mine up during the Preview Weekend. A couple of guild mates has mentioned that they have yet to find one, does anyone know if they have dropped since the game went live?---- sdcmgs

"DD" Repetition of the same character for a two-letter word. No such word exists in the English language to my knowledge. Perhaps they really are just random letters, or, it is not a Cryptogram/Cipher but rather some other sort of puzzle. Like...you have to rearrange all the letters...but the placements are still correct... Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 03:05, 16 September 2007 (CDT)

matrix encryption allows for this, could be, but its a little complicated :S Darknight 05:42, 26 September 2007 (CDT)

"GUM GUM"? What, in english, would be a repeated 3 letter word in a sentence? (like: Bye Bye) Are they even in english for that matter? If you change the game language under the options screen, does the text of the note change? Unfortunately, I did not get one before they stopped dropping.
Also, I don't think it's just random letters, as the phrase: "REA FDESASDS RESASDD" apears in both the above text message and the picture posted on the article page.
I have created an Excell Spreadsheet, that shows both messages, and alows a mass replace letter by letter if anyone else wants to try and decode the messages. If anyone else has different messages, I can also add those to the spreadsheet.

My guess

Don't forget to drink your ovaltine.

Nonfunctional (for now)

According to ANet desiner, Linsey Murdock, these no longer drop. It sounds like quests will be added in the future. --Thervold 14:00, 7 September 2007 (CDT)

decipher

the one in the article, uses the first out of the three ciphering methods, and contain this text: Foo 23:42, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

and you can use the decoder over and over, and you would not lose the page. Foo 23:44, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
after talking again with the captain, she took the decoder with the plans in it, and sent my party to center north of dragon's gullet. Foo 23:46, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
Which has now level 20 charr with the eotn skillbars (not sure now, maybe a mix, maybe just some of the names). (quest log: Special Ops: dragon's gullet. find and annihilate all three charr companies in dragon's gullet. X out of 100 charr slain.). Foo 23:48, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

you can subdue and mount a siege devourer there. questions:

  • is there a resurrection in it, or could you fail?
  • could you got again if you failed? (without coming up with new battle plans?)
  • could you got again even if you completed it? (like an unlock for that op).
  • could it be a nice way for those without ch1 to see some of the ch1 areas?

reward: 80 vanguard points :\ so far, it is real easy. I'm c-spacing while writing this. Foo 23:54, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

more info in here. Foo 00:11, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
  • No res shrine
  • No, the deciphere dplan is removed from your inventory (very, very lame)
  • Don't know
  • Doubt it
Also, you can take others who do not have the plan with you. --Karlos 02:55, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
