Don't believe me, then Im sure "Guides" will post a screenshot of his title.

this is not a Guide at all and shouldnt be considered as such.


Now why would you think that this person doesn't have R6 max title?
And why would you want proof? Who cares? Its a good guide and it works fine, the point is not wheter or not this person really has R6, its a guide for people to use.

Interesting thread to read through. First some background on my progress and what I was thinking of doing:

Titles 1-7: Prot/Guardian DONE
Titles 8-11: Carto DONE
Titles 12-15: Skill Hunter DONE
Titles 16-17: LB/SS DONE
Titles 18-21: GW:EN Reputations DONE
Titles 22-25: Vanquishing
Titles 26-27: Sweets/Drunkard
Title 28: Master of North
Title 29: Treasure Hunter
Title 30: Luxon or Wisdom.

That's not the order I did things and such, just wrote as list and I mostly remembered. The main issue is with last one, whether to go Luxon or Wisdom. I'm not really worried about getting it done ASAP, and will honestly be surprised if I finish by GW2, . Overall, I'd still like to try.

Reasoning to try to do Luxon is that it wont cost money. I currently think to run chests, and sell the unid golds to help with cost of lockpicks. I'm not the luckiest person in the world as it comes to drops and mods, so I thought it'd be the better route to go honestly. But from what you guys are talking about, you seem to think Wisdom title is basically a wash as you get golds from Treasure Hunter. As you can see, most of this is all curved due to costs. Lockpicks are rather expensive over the long run of the title, so that's where all this reasoning comes from.

Going with Wisdom would be the easier route with Treasure Hunter...as Luxon title would obviously take LONG LONG time. Just again, cost issue I think, atleast. Running the NM chests in either Snowman or Witman's will not yield many golds, and not all mods can be retrieved in the cast of Witman's.

Also had thought that maybe running area in NF or GW:EN in HM will yield more golds, can take all mods if i do ID for Wisdom, but retention rate will be lower of course.

Some of you seem very adamant about Wisdom title being much of a wash, and would make it loads simpler. Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated, as far as where I should run chests to go along with Wisdom title, whether NM or HM, etc based on what I've stated. Thanks, and nice guide/thread!!

Well this what I've got done.

1 x Master of The North
4 x Cartographer
4 x Skill Hunter
6 x Lightbringer/SS/Reputation
7 x Guardian
2 x Sweet touth & Drunkard.
1 x Vanq
__
25

So I've got 3 more vanq. ( pretty easy stuff )

I'm rank 5 in wisdom, lucky and treasure.
And rank 7 in Zurzick.

I'll finish my Vanq ( using all profits for pixs ) So that's going to make 28. 2 more.

I've done most of the math on what I still need to do. The fastest way for me to finish the last 2 would be treasure hunter and lucky. The Zurzick title comments were some good food for thought but the time required is far greater. Note for people work on Zurzick title. I use to farm chests at the same time.

So figure I'll be vanquashing and chest farming for a while. Here's my math on it.

Figure got 2200 more chest at 65% Retain 1430 - Break 770
then the last 5000 at 68% - Retain 3400 - Break 1600

So total 4830 Break 2370. I've already got 1100 pixs saved up too. So I could be in good shape. Actually I'm finding I'm break close to even on the snowman cave. Going to take a long time but get 2.5k every 2 runs, which helps pay for the pixs.

So 4830 * 250 (luck points) = 1207500 + 1018000 --> 2225500. So I'll be short 274500 points. So one 9 ring event weekend might do it.


Note I find as soon as I really start just farming chest, my gold ratio from chests drops next to zero. Hense I don't think I could make much money selling golds.

I've been chest running in the snow man cave. Maybe I should mix it up but we'll see.

Number of runs required:
(10,000,000 faction needed/400 faction per run)/(2) <-Since donating 10k
=12,500 runs needed faction counts as 20k for title
(12,500 runs needed)*(350 gold per run)=4,375,000

4,375,000 is nowhere near 5,000,000 onless you got some pretty generous tips in there.

Oh right I forgot to inclue the fact that I temporarily in a guild that payed 1k for every 5k faction I donated for an extra 1 mil

Oh and 75k...you must have been really unlucky

Good guide, needs some refining some what, but otherwise good.

Also could I recommend you add a Friend of the Luxons ALT guide section, not everyone is in a Kurzick guide... me included.

Once you install Texmod, (making sure its in package mode) open it and click on the big folder. Find your Guild Wars program (probably a GW with a helmet symbol, usually under your C drive in program files under Guild Wars folder) Then click the smaller folder above the red X, and select the files you want to use (elona made easy, cantha made easy, etc.) Now click run and when you open your map you will see all the areas you haven’t explored in light brown or light blue in Tyria/Gwen case. From here its easy, just use a running build and a good team and run around every continent clearing all the brown and blue. Quite simple.\

I mean I see that he's maxed it... He doesn't say that it actually counted toward his koabd title track though. I certainly hope they've hope to keep it as a max.

Quote from post.
I myself edited the article to state that Blessed by Fate is the max tier after I achieved it myself. This is not to say that there are no future tiers higher than rank 6 in the plans (I certainly hope not), but Blessed by Fate is certainly the highest tier available at this moment. Here is some visual proof for your edification:

I dont really find 75k unlucky.
to max out SS/LB it takes about 75 runs
wich is 1k per run

Now if you were to get 200k from that.. you would need 2.7k per run
thats extremely lucky

In my opinion you should edit it to 75-150k

You get money as a reward after you finish the quest. Its on you what you do with the gained faction. But when you turn unspent faction in form of Alliance reputation or Skills you get the 2x of the points into K./L. title.

I have to agree here, after doing lb/ss, i got around 70-100k, you should probably change the amount you put.

You donate faction in 5k chunks to a kurzick ambassador (can be in gh if you are kurzick alliance) each 5k you donate gives 10k to your title.
