2.0 out of 5 stars Far from complete 1 Jan 2008
By Trancer
Verified Purchase
Due to the fact this guide was released at the end of beta, many changes were brought in. Although there arent many mistakes made in the guide it is far from complete. The newbie area Wilderness has been covered quite well but since you can download this from the internet in PDF form there isnt alot of point to it. As the zones carry on there are less and less information on missions and instances. When the guide gets to Torden Mires all you get is a picture of the zone and /loc of the logos. No mission info or instances. Brady are usually pretty good with strategy guides but this is by far the worst one i have bought.

However if you bought Tabula Rasa online you wont have a manual and this does act as an advanced manual. There are good infomration on the bane and also class types and skills. All of which are quite handy. But if you are looking at a complete players guide to all missions and instances your going to be very disapointed. There are websites that have much more detail on nearly every mish and update regularly. Also they are free :)

I feel really the guide has been given false advertising as the free wilderness zone download is very detailed and i expected the whole manual to be the same.

Hopefully a detailed guide maybe released in the near future. Also there have been alot of patches and changes to the game now so be aware that not everything still stands in the guide.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking past mid 20's... 12 Nov 2007
By Teromous - Published on
If you look through this book when you start playing Tabula Rasa, it would appear to contain maps of every area. This is because you've just started playing the game and don't know what to look for. At lower levels this book is very useful, containing maps of the instances and locations of Logos within them. It even gives you a heads-up on some of the tactics you'll need to employ against many enemies.

After playing the game a few days and getting past these new areas, you'll start to notice some things missing at first. First it will be a few quests missing from the book, then a few of the smaller instances. Later on it will become inexcusable. Large important instances will be missing from the book, without even so much as a map to look at.

I gave this book 2 stars because it does contain a lot of information, and for lower level players it does have useful maps. Later on you'll have to rely on fansites (from about 23-50).

1.0 out of 5 stars Obsolete before it was released 14 Nov 2007
By Dinubabear - Published on
Verified Purchase
They really should have waited until the game was released before sending this book to the press. The book is a walk through of the BETA TEST of Tabula Rasa. This means it mentions contacts and quests that no longer exist while not mentioning the current contacts. Also this is a rush job on editing, with the text of powers consistently mentioning a 2 minute duration while the table lists a 1 minute duration for the same power and other obvious disagreements. Finally, the book is only usable for the early levels and totally ignores the later levels and maps, plus there are no sample character builds and the suggested levels to train skills and powers disagree between text and tables.

If you want pretty pictures of the game on nice glossy pages, this is your book. It looks very nice.

But if you can read & retain that information and you want accurate hints that will help you through ALL of the game, wait until another book is published that explains the current game accurately. I'm sorry I preordered this.

This product is no longer needed, Tabula Rasa is no more. As for the guide, all the info that was ever needed could have been found online. Guide was dated at publish.
1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY or buy only for artwork 21 May 2011
By Lance D - Published on
Verified Purchase
If you dont know by now, this game can not and will not ever function.

It requires online servers run by the production company for you to log in.

Those servers have been taken down and will never be put back up.

This game can never be played.

If you are buying this, know that you are buying a drink coaster.

You have been warned.

Having said that, if you happen to be a fan of the game designer who created this, and you can pick it up for a penny, its a nice looking box. I bought mine for a penny purely because I am putting together a history of MMO display for a school project using old game boxes.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fair Warning 23 Sep 2008
By Greg Vernon - Published on
Just a short note as fair warning. It seems this guide was written during development and beta testing. Thus, it has many small and not a few large errors. Further, the 12 Deployments (read major patches) as of Sept 22, 2008 make the gap between what the guide says and what is in game all that much greater.

Still the guide has a great deal of useful information and is worth the read for now. If you don't have friends already in game to explain some of the mechanics and background information purchase this guide, but purchase it knowing it has flaws.
