Make sure to make as much money of it as possible while your at it. Id everything and salvage the materials you'll need for future armor/weapons. Roam through the wiki to figure out which armorsets you want and what you'll need to craft them.

I also suggest that you create a pvp only ranger and create a trapper's build for him so you can farm zaishen elite for ~20 mins every day for essentially 6k/day. Once you're done with the campaigns you should have quite a lot of zkeys to sell for a nice sum of money to buy minis and materials for armor/weapons which you havn't gotten by yourself yet. http://www.gwpvx.com/Build:Team_-_Ba...ishen_Trappers

I suggest you try to max out the monument of fellowship yourself because it's rather easy and will save you some money. Aquire as many titles as you feel is reasonable. 5 statues give a large reward and is easy enough, if you feel like you can go for more then do that and you'll be able to cut corners elsewhere. Most titles are timeconsuming rather than dependant on your pocketbook.

Okay I want to start vanquishing, however it seems hard. And most people tell me that it's because I do not have good heroes, and that I should invest in a good team of 7.

Can anyone tell me which professions should these 7 heores be? And which heroes and give me some builds for them?

Maybe have a look around here and get some ideas and post your builds for feedback.

Meanwhile if you go through NF and EoTN you will collect the heroes you need along the way anyhow.

Okay guys as of 30 minutes ago I achieved 29/50 in HoM.

My goal since I got in this game 2 months ago was to get 30/50 but I'm being a little bit pressured by several things and I do not have much time for playing this awesome game.

Also I recently spent a LOT of money on several things to make 29/50 so now I am sort of broke.

At the moment I have 7 statues in HoM those being : Hero + Protector Statues and Sorrow's Furnance statue.

I am really close to get Guardian of Cantha and Kurzick statue. So that will be 9 statues.

The problem is......THE LAST STATUE. So my question is which statue could I aquire fast and cheap?

My IGN : Uvell The First (feel free to see what I have in my HoM and please give me the best tip for my statue).

Thank you in advance for the feedback I will get.

Both Luxon and Cartographer are easy. They'll take a bit of time but they won't cost you anything. Using TexMod for Carto will speed up the process (though people who want it generally do it as they go rather than retroactively, but it doesn't matter). The other guardian titles are good options, although the difficulty will obviously scale depending on how good your builds are (and again, it won't cost you anything (unless you hire a runner) so you can spend any excess cash on skills if you need them).

Correct, you can kill all of the other bosses in NM, and then just go kill Duncan in HM, and it will count as a HM dungeon complete.

Okay, with time I found myself annoyed by my character blond hair. Ikr, it's sort of stupid but nontheless I found my self really wishing to change his hair.

So my question is : Is there a way to change my character appearence WITHOUT spending real money on a makeover pack. 9 euros seems a bit too much to spend just to change his hair.

So is the makeover tradeble? Or could I change it with another way?

No, there's no other way. Nothing you can buy in shop is tradable (for obvious reasons) nad the only way to change appearance is that pack, sorry.

You could always cover it with a headpiece?

Okay after hitting 30/50 HoM and finishing all of the story I decided to get all of the skills.

I am an Assassin and my question is.... : is it possible?

And I mean ALL skills. Mesmer, Warrior etc. If there is a skill I want it.

There's nothing that precludes you from learning all the skills, except for time and money. Each skill you learn that you didn't get from quests, will cost you (at this point) 1 skill point and 1 plat, or 1 hero skill point. The Wikia says you can earn around 250-260 skill points if you do all the missions. You get another 77 from hero skill points. So, you'd have to come up with the remaining 975'ish skill points via levels. Which Seems a lot, but levels can go quickly. I capped most of my elites during double elite XP, which means you earn 2/3 of a skill point every time you spend one.

It depends what your purpose on learning the skills is. If it's just to have them all on one char, it's easy, beyond being expensive and time consuming. If you're trying to unlock them for heroes, there's easier/cheaper ways to do it (the most obvious one being just buying the unlock packs. To prioritize them in order of most annoying to do by hand, I would go with Prophecies, Nightfall, then Factions)

As above, it's definitely possible. A couple of points though:

1 - An extremely large majority of the skills will never get any use. If you're happy to essentially throw out hundreds of platinum for no benefit whatsoever go ahead, but consider what else you could do with that time/money.

2a - With so many non-elites, you're much much better off using tomes. Buying them from the trader will cost 1k + a skill point. Tomes vary in price, but can be as low as ~200g each for assassin tomes. That'll be a lot of money in the long run

2b - The downside of using tomes however, is needing to have the skills unlocked beforehand. Buying the skill unlock pack would alleviate this issue, or you could use balthazar faction or get them on other characters. Anything other than the unlock pack (which costs real money*) will require a large investment of ingame resources anyway.

2c - This leads me to my final, and best piece of advice - buy the skill unlock pack and keep 20 or so tomes of each profession in storage. That way you can be sure to have easy access to whichever skills you want without having to buy them all.

*To nitpick/be ocd, 'real money' is an entirely redundant statement, but whatever. You get the point.

Thank you, I know it will be time/money consuming and I don't really care if I don't use them all....I just want them xD.

Thank you for the advice though. I might buy the skill unlock pack to make my life easier but not now. Maybe after I do legendary skill hunter.

And does anyobdy know if this build is still good?

You're using the wrong wiki. New gwpvx is here: http://www.gwpvx.com/PvX_wiki

There are a few scythe builds there; one of which is pretty similar to the one you linked. For what it's worth, it's rated 'good' rather than 'great' and isn't listed as meta.

I am doing this thing by myself with heros and sometimes with one friend and his heros. Obviously, that is boring. I don't know how to meet people who know what they are doing without totally annoying them. I already have a guild that is useless since my family wanted one, but I want to participate. I think I have a few skills anyway.

Thx for the site. The builds there seem to work slightly better.

Anyways I've got a new question. While I was completing the cipher chain quest I saw a norn in asuran teritory that wanted to race with me. What was his name and where can I meet him again?

I want to finish that race
