Survivor with Books[]

I just copied over the tables and a couple of my comments from the original archived conversation, which is here.

As promised a while ago, here's a quick run through of how many full books it would take to get Survivor 3, which requires 1,337,500 XP, with a little of my commentary.

Book missions max XP books for S3 Notes
The Flameseeker Prophecies (Hard Mode).png 18 80k 120k 16.7 11.1 longest book; highest reward; many missions are very long and some can fail close to the end
Shiro's Return (Hard Mode).png 11 40k 60k 33.4 22.3 short; Eternal Grove and Imperial Sanctum may be tough with AI team
Night Falls (Hard Mode).png 17 60k 90k 22.3 14.9 long; Dzagonur Bastion and Gate of Madness can be a pain with AI
Young Heroes of Tyria.png 12 67.5k* 19.8 short; HM only; simple starter missions; * XP reward varies depending on where you turn it in, and is highest from Gordon Ecker
Hero's Handbook (Hard Mode).png 11* 40k 60k 33.4 22.3 shortest book; easy once you master DD and ATFH; faster than Young Heroes; * 5/16 entries are automatically complete after the first time
  • In conclusion, I would place my top bet on Young Heroes of Tyria or Hero's Handbook.
    • YHoT is relatively short and very simple, even in HM, since these are starter missions. You can also choose to get 4,500 SS or LB rep or a cool 90k Kurz/Lux title points at the cost of 13 of the XP, increasing the number of books needed from 19.8 to 29.7. If you do 30 books and take them to Cantha, you will get an impressive 2,700,000 faction title points - more than rank 8 if you start from scratch, or over ¼ of the entire title track! - Note these are not actual faction you can spend, but go straight to your title track.
    • Hero's Handbook is easy and fast if you can run Destruction's Depths reliably, and provides nice rep rewards for EotN titles, if you don't have them yet.
  • Note that the decimal points in the number of books required do not scale with the number of completed pages because of the "buffer" missions. They're only there instead of just a straight rounded up integer to show how close you are and if you'll need most of another book or can go kill a couple of worms in Ice Cliffs to finish up the title.

XP gained time risk notes
Great Northern Wall 3,500 12 min low
Fort Ranik 4,600 17 min low
Ruins of Surmia 8,700 28 min med popups, patrols and Rurik can cause overaggro
Nolani Academy 5,000 19 min med patrols and Rurik can cause overaggro
Borlis Pass 4,700 19 min low
The Frost Gate 5,300 19 min low
Gates of Kryta 3,800 17 min med lack of corpses for meatshields, spike dmg, Hablion overaggroes and fails the mission -> best not to trigger him
Minister Cho's Estate 4,200 11 min low
Zen Daijun 3,200 12 min high multiple eles with Mind Burn targetting backline -> my only deaths -> keep Prot Spirit up at all times
Chahbek Village 1,100 4 min low
Jokanur Diggings 2,800 11 min med fire traps + mobs that will happily finish you off after walking through one
Blacktide Den 2,400 12 min med Grenth's Balance + Skale stampede
Total ~49k 181 min med should be 0 deaths with experience and caution -> learn the spawns
  • If you can survive filling 12 YHoT books without any deaths, you can do the title in only 144 missions and about 36 hours of playtime (15 books, 180 missions and 45 hours if you want the 1.35M Kurz/Lux title points instead).

    • I'd like to note that, since Mind Burn's been updated to be a useful skill, Zen Daijun is even worse now, since those eles are now able to nuke your entire party. --banjo2E 04:02, 8 February 2012 (UTC)


Oh, the irony... Exactly 5 years ago I got my first GW mask, and I missed this one. Because I forgot. BAH! >_< Oh well, the first one was the best, anyway. Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 18:02, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

I think you can still get one real quick, just gotta buy a stack of v-tokens and see the guy in shing jea. Ariyen 20:31, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I just did that. Remembered about them while I was driving to WalMart... ^_^ Durr... Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 03:31, 6 July 2011 (UTC)


Are you able to watch that gw video, now that you're in the usa? 22:13, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

"That" GW video? I know, late reply is late, I don't check this much anymore.
Ohh... wait, ha, hello Ariyenonymous. :P I'm gonna call you that now. I remember there was some video somewhere on someone's user page that I couldn't watch due to Sony's dumb ass, but don't remember where or what it was. ^_^ Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 03:00, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant that video. 72.114 is me. Sorry. Ariyen 16:29, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Of course, I should have known... The chocobo theme in the end was kind of disturbing, though... Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 18:58, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I love the nickname! Ariyenonymous ftw. (PS ohai, rose!)  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:55, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
lol. I should have that as like a name in game on secondary account X-D. 21:57, 11 October 2011 (UTC)


Hello! I want to thank you for everything you have done for the Guild Wiki. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Tesla, a wiki manager for Curse. The reason I am posting on your talk page is for some feedback. I was hoping you could tell me if there was something you would like to see on the wiki or if you think there is something we could do to help improve the quality of our service to the community. If you have any ideas at all, please feel free to stop by on my talk page and leave me your thoughts. Thank you! Tesla 03:20, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello Tesla. I haven't played GW in a long time now (outside of events), and haven't been active on the wiki, but I'm glad others are keeping it afloat. :) Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 20:51, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Miniature Icon[]

How does one do that? :-S I've got the miniature Dragon, but I don't know how to do the Icon. Ariyen 20:45, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

You have to know how to extract the texture, which is complicated. I just stole the icon and added a shadow to it just as you were typing this. :P Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 20:49, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Hehe. Yea, I'll leave the texture extraction to the experts. ;-) Btw, uploaded it to the miniature - if you wanna see how you might need to "adjust" the shadow, etc. for a gold background. I'm still working on getting one for husband. Ariyen 21:01, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I spie with my little eye, A TRAIN, THAT IS DELAYED BY 3 GODDAMN CENTIMETRES OF SNOW. Well, at least I has intawebz on it, to lessen my burdens. So, how is our rose been for the past,[]

BIRTHDAY??????????????????/ Cause you just leveled up. Congratulations! And how's the hubby doing? Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 18:39, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

You were one of the people (like RT) who I wanted to ninja Arnout on and give a non-header. :P
Oh well, hope you've a happy happy happy birthday. I also hope it's not spoiled by having to hire bodyguards to protect your husband from Arnout, who seemingly wants to bump him off so that you'll be available. I also hope it isn't spoiled by my random comment.

Thanks, everyone! :D We did get snowed in a couple days ago, but in my town the snow usually melts in a day or two. That's the Front Range for ya... Still hasn't felt like winter this year. Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 20:37, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Happy Birthday![]

Always knowing that it falls the day after mine, makes it easy to remember. ^.^ Have a great day girl! 19:51, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Aw, thanks! Hope you had a happy one too! Rose Of Kali Rose Of Kali SIG.png 20:38, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Had a good one, got to spend it with the three year old. Husband's been out of town working. :0( but he was so sweet in sending me 6 roses and 3 balloons that also pacified her as she loves balloons. I am surprised she wasn't after the "flowers"/roses. The most b-day wishes I had was on fb, which surprised me at it being a lot more than I had expected. Ariyen 23:25, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
