More About the Author

Dan Birlew is an author and video game expert who has been writing official, published video game strategy guides since 1999. His original career goals included acting and directing. Video games always excited Dan since he was seven years old, but at the age of twenty-six he began honing his playing skills with the goal of becoming an expert gamer. He enjoyed publishing online documents regarding games, known as "FAQs". Dan inadvertently created an online persona for himself when he wrote and self-published on the Internet a plot analysis of the highly popular survival horror video game, Silent Hill. "The game's story was somewhat vague, and demanded that someone try to explain it," says Birlew.

Upon receiving an overwhelming number of positive responses from other Silent Hill fans, and after some gentle nudging from his wife, Birlew decided to set aside his acting and directing activities to establish a career as a video game strategy guide author. He sent writing samples to several publishing companies. Based on the merits of his very first submission, he was hired by a major publisher within 24 hours. Birlew says, "It was as though I had won the lottery."

Birlew has authored over sixty published video game strategy guides and seeks other methods of publication, such as review columns, articles, and other non-fiction video game-related books. Birlew says of his passion for games, "I love exploring video games, the industry, the culture, the fans -- and there is so much of it about which I can analyze and write." He also bears a strong desire to publish fiction, and is currently working on a novel concerning the paranormal.

Dan Birlew is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, and has lived in Pennsylvania, Texas, and California. He now resides in Las Vegas with his wife of seventeen years. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993. Besides video games, Birlew also enjoys Japanese films and dining with his family and friends in the restaurants and clubs of Las Vegas.

First WKC was brand new to the US so a guide was needed for the armor tables, best quests for <X> drops, stats, loot, combat, etc. Honestly, it's a lot faster for me to hit NeoSeeker for a direct answer than to thumb through the 100+ pages in the guide. The chapters are generic (ie - 'equip a weapon before entering combat') and dont break down into details how to really optimize your class.
One thing this guide does well is give you the breakdown on where to find all the Elder gear for your knight
And the requirements for unlocking/solving the errands.
If you're brand new to WKC series, this will get you combat-ready. If you want the nitty gritty on what to expect after you finish the single player and continue on with guild ranks, gear and levels on GeoNet, NeoSeeker's wikia is lightyears better.

This is a pretty good guide. A lot of information is packed in this manual. Although no strategy guide is perfect, this one is pretty good. It has some redeeming qualities.

WHAT IS IN THE GUIDE
I will not bother too much with what is not here or what is 'wrong' with the guide. That being said, here is what is in the book.

Walkthrough
A very nice walkthrough of WKCII's story mode. The first game's walkthrough may be accessed from Brady Games' website, so it says.

Skills
These are listed in charts in the order the skills are listed in game. Direct prerequisites are listed, as well as the Skill Point and Magic Point costs. There is a nice overview of the skills.

Bestiary
Wow. Item drops are listed by the beasty that drops the item.

Equipment
All here, arranged alphabetically. I am certain if these were listed some other way some people would complain. There are pictures of each armor and weapon.

Items
All of the items are listed by type: Ores, Fossils, Crystals, Timber, Lumber, Flowers, Cotton, Mushrooms and Insects. Next are the monster drops by monster type. Then enhancement materials and finally Other materials.

Binding Recipes
Yep, all here.

Quests & Bounties
Only the WKCII quests and bounties are here.

Errands
They are all here. Including those from the first game.

Georama
Each part is listed. Also, all recruitable residents, where to find them, recruit requirements and what they produce for your georama are all listed. Furthermore, all parts and residents are pictured.

Overview
Stats are explained. I now know what Burden is and what it does!

Hmm, still dunno where to get a cedar plank ....

You can find plenty of walkthroughs for this game on the internet, but a book always "feels" more efficient to me. Covers the "additional" content Part II brings, but NOT the original game --- you need the first book too!!!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The WKC2 game disc includes a revamped version of WKC1 (original story, but using the WKC2 game mechanics). Brady took the cheap route and rather than including everything in this guide, they only include the WKC2 half of the stuff & hosted WKC1 eGuide PDF, with the URL printed in the WKC2 guide for you visit to download it. There are 2 major problems with this approach:
1. The printed URL no longer works, meaning if you're new to WKC, this guide will be useless for your first half of the game.
2. The bestiary in this guide only lists the enemies that make their first appearance in WKC2 & doesn't include enemies that originally appeared in WKC1. The problem here is that quite a few enemies have undergone major changes - physical attack type weaknesses/resistances, item drop rates, status ailment resistances, & some have even had their elemental attributes reversed.

Aside from the 2 major flaws above, there are the standard guide issues - typos, misprints, occasional chest with mislabeled contents, etc and lack of in-depth game mechanic/strategy coverage (IMO, it doesn't cover staggers & breaks nearly well enough; I don't remember it even mentioning break drops). It does have a few redeeming qualities that allow it to barely squeak by with a 3 star rating:
1. The WKC2 story walkthrough is actually pretty helpful (granted you won't need it for most of the story).
2. The Rift maps are great for deciding which rifts are worth exploring & what order to do them in (varies depending upon your preference).
3. The skill tree, bounty, & errand sections are great for reference.
4. It does a great job of covering precisely how equipment weight affects your speed (the in-game tutorial just mentions heavier stuff is slower & doesn't give the exact details).

There are many tears along the outside of the book, This was supposed to be a new item that I paid for. It doesn't look that way though.

Pros:
-Better and clearer maps than the first book.
-Complete database,although not very detailed,can cause confusion regarding where (and when) to obtain item and equipment.

Cons:
-The main walkthrough seems to be rushed.
-Doesn't cover the changes from WKC1,including additional guild quest that weren't available in the first book.
