You don't. You just stop getting bonus XP. It's an artificial way off stopping poopsock no lifers from out levelling the rest of the server.

I thought you could transfer one type of exp to another type of exp? quest exp to talent exp? Im not to sure on the process.

You can convert level exp to talent xp if that's what you mean. When you try to upgrade a skill and don't have enough talent xp, it will ask if you want to use level xp instead. So I suppose you could stop leveling like that if you wanted. I'm not sure why you would want to though.


Also can I remind everyone to do the guild quest. It looks like lots of people haven't had any contribution this week.

Is the guild quest the one we all got invited to today and then we didn't have enough to do? Or is it something people can solo?

The solo one: Adventure->Guild Quest. It's the 30 stage one.

It's solo and easy to idle on. It's essentially doing work for the guild (posting fliers, etc), which makes the guild money. Guild has an upkeep and infrastructure to pay for, so everyone needs to do their part.

Fun Shoe

Got into a raid last night, then got kicked half way through for no god drat reason.

So that was fun I guess.

The raid I joined after the goon one fell apart started kicking people below level 33. I left after the fourth wipe caused by Leeroys. Good times, hope we can wrangle 25 for a goon raid soon.

Stay up on the weekly Guild quests so I can keep upgrading our Guild buildings. We're nearing level 3 and then I can unlock level 30 weapons/armor for crafting.

I'd assume people raiding with the guild will be a bit more patient and I'd be way more receptive to enabling voice chat if I'm raiding with y'all rather than just an auto-match pub crew.

Because it lets you stop levelling while you still have the double xp bonus to apply towards talent xp, which takes a lot longer to max out.

I'm not sure about others but I did the quests for another guild before joining this one, so I'm tapped out for the week. I imagine next week will have more people contributing.

Anyone know if the voice chat in game is any good or should we be looking at setting up a guild discord server?

Voice chat for raiding is critical and I cant wait to see how this will all compare to wow vanilla 40 man raids. Being on mobile is a little different though.

Warning: Auction house prices are per item, not per stack. Don't do what I did and blow 15k gold on low level mats.


Also a clarification on the level xp bonus - if you are 5 or more levels below the cap, you get +100%. Between 2 and 4 levels below, +50%. At max level you don't get any bonus. So if you're min/maxing you'll want to stay 5 levels below the cap until you have your paths all leveled up as high as they can go, then level to 1 below cap and do the same again.

Edit: Only take the above into account if you want to level multiple paths. Otherwise just level normally, your path will keep up fine.

How do you leave a group/party? I joined one for a raid or something the quest thing had me do and couldn't figure out how to leave. Eventually they kicked me out I think but I may still be in the group...

Tap the middle button on the left panel, then tap it again to bring up the group window. Tap leave group.

You would think that with all the tutorial stuff they might show you that since it is not obvious even a little bit.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Is there some trick to getting auto matched to the right tier of elemental groups? I'm in my 20s and am constantly getting matched with the lvl 30/40 groups which I get no credit in.

I don't think there is a trick. Don't worry, you'll hit 30 super quick.

You can also just make a group of your own. It will fill pretty quick.

I had the same issue. The solution is to start your own group and lead the way.

It gets easier. At first I couldn't get a winning group either, and a few days later I'm sleepwalking through all four 5 mans. I wish there were a few more; the jump up to Heroics is pretty brutal.

Yep. Took me 2 or 3 days? Most of it on autopilot. Seems to slow down after that.

The fact that Team includes LFG shouts and the Faction channel not being disableable topped off with the chat filter makes the chat system in this game almost unusable.

I'm a healer but I think I might change to being a DPS caster or reroll/alt as a warrior. I can't figure out how to heal well, and the UI is pretty confusing and unhelpful to letting me know what's going on with my heal spells. I figured out how to turn the DPS meter to a healing one do I do know I am doing heals, and people don't generally die until after I do, but it still feels weird?

Any other healer people got some basic tips?

Also I keep missing all the time events because I'm Pacific time, oops

When I played healer on the other servers at launch in SEA, I pretty much autoed all the time and all was fine.

One tip maybe you haven't noticed yet is that your auto attack actually heals if you are targeting a friendly. So if you simply select the party member via the party menu on the left of the screen, and then spam the attack button, that keeps them alive almost indefinitely. Couple this with the shield for spike damage and the AOE heal when the whole party need topping off and you should be fine. I only had to start doing this for the hardest dungeons though.

But you can not only play on the john, you can have the game play itself while you enjoy a good toilet-meditation session. Throw away the sock, goon.

Also, in as Makes Sense, until I forget I'm playing this or something. Or reroll a nontank for some reason.
