This book has basically none of that.
Let's start with the classes. This book spends a good deal of time presenting feat trees, class skills, etc. but it never does a good job of dissecting the information. After reading this book, you will know nothing that you didn't know prior to reading your skill list and feat trees. The skills are simply taken word for word. So if you're wondering what exactly that particular feat does or if it's worth it, this book will not help you.
It also uses image placeholders instead of the actual spells at times. For instance, all of the beta placeholders for summoning minions are intact...meaning there's no picture. Just a little dash. With a lot of the pictures and content looking like it's from beta, I wonder if the spells themselves aren't different since I've noticed changes moving from closed beta to release.
There's a lot of details here concerning Tortage and the beginning levels. After that, you're given a few pages per zone...but not every zone is here! It breaks it down to Cimmeria (Conall's Valley and Fields of the Dead), Aquilonia (Old Tarantia, Noble District and Tesso...along with a couple of the instanced zones) and Stygia (Khemi and Khopshef). Obviously there's more zones than those above for questing.Read more ›
Just as an example, it has the expected Map section - - but they are unlabeled! There is absolutely nothing of value in this book, whatsoever.
I'm sorry that I can't give it less than 1 star.
Or, you could do as Brady Games did, and gloss over everything. With the exception of the early level content information, which may be useful to players seeking to eke the most out of Tortage and/or decide which race may present the most enjoyment, everything in this book is a waste. Skills? Just like what they say in game, without further mechanics breakdowns. Feats? Hit the N-key once you logged in, and you're looking at the same information the book provides. Crafting guides tell us how to make items, but not what they're good for beyond knowing that, yes, indeed armor is worn on various bits of the body. We get page after page of maps without any markers or content, cheap filler in a book already content-poor.
I've seen badly done hint books before -- the City of Villains hint binder was legendarily useless. It still provided more information than this book. I am, frankly, amazed that this book isn't shrink-wrapped, as anyone who flips through it should likely realize what a phenomenal waste of cash this is.Read more ›
Just a few problems with the book:
1) Not all zoned are covered. All of the 50+ zones are missing.
2) Most feat descriptions are vague like the tooltips in the game itself and provide no numbers.
3) A lot of the information they do provide is simply incorrect.
Very Very disappointed. Do not even buy this... will not help you at all.

Honestly you can find what you want and/or need on the wonderful world wide web. But there's nothing like having paper in your hand to take a break from staring at the screen.Published 12 months ago by mscootw2
