From the makers of Everquest & Baldurs Gate, comes Champions of Norrath, a new styled RPG/Action game. Surely you would want to know secrets from a professional's point of view. And this Strategy Guide is what that is. Even though the game (Champions of Norrath, release date - April,30) isn't out yet, reading the guide prior to the game's release date, educated me about gameplay and hidden secrets.
Enjoying the fact that it is a Prima Guide, who are reknowned for creating some of the best Strategy guides for popular games.
This is a worthy purchase, and by all means, is a need for every Champions of Norrath player. Information on gameplay, spells, weaponry, characters, and how to battle the forces of evil, helps even the veterans of RPG frontiering gameplay.
A perfect match for the game itself.

It is like an AD&D Player's Handbook for Norrath 9 Feb. 2013
By Quercus Alba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think of this guidebook like it is an AD&D Player's Handbook for the Champions of Norrath game, for those that are familiar with D&D games from past years.

I played through Champions of Norrath last summer and beat it on Normal setting using a Wood Elf Ranger - without having a guidebook (I did use an online FAQ). I loved the game so much - it is such fun - pure action, with many of the old D&D attributes that I love from way back in the 80's playing with dice. Because so much of the game is randomly generated level maps, and because the character classes are so different from each other and the game is so deep with weapons, options, etc., I knew I would return to play it again several times. So I found this Prima guide online on Amazon and ordered a used copy for a really cheap price before my current, second go-around in Norrath.

I'm happy I did. The guide is 136 pages, and it really reminds me of the old Player's Handbook in that it is very deep in laying out the various character classes, with strategies, pictures, the skill trees, detailed stat tables for skills and spells, etc. It has unbelievably deep and detailed armor and weapons tables (this game has more statistical variables than I ever imagined the first time through it). The guidebook is geared toward helping you select a character, and know some strategy and exactly what the stats will be for the thousands of different combinations this game allows.

As far as a walkthrough, it is really more of a beast compendium and paragraph-type summary of various areas, dungeon levels, boss fights, etc., than a true step-by-step walkthrough. If you want step-by-step detail, this will not be what you are looking for. It's probably not even possible, given the random generation nature of the level maps. If you want a physical, paper, full-color book that functions like a Player's Handbook for Norrath, you will like this. I'm glad I got it, especially at such a low price for used. This game is one of the best ever and has super-high replay value.

A stategy guide that leaves things out 11 Oct. 2004
By Scott Staten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The guide leaves an entire class of item out, not even mentioning thier existance, it also gets details of the actual levels wrong (even taking into acount the random generation nature of the levels) giving flat-out wrong information.

One of my favorite RPGs. Champions of Norrath Return to Arms is the magnificent sequel to Champions of Norrath. Still playing them both after all these years!
