Out of date too easily
on 12 March 2005
writing a strategy guide for online games can be very difficult, although great for the company producing the books as they will get more money from re-releases and updated versions, it does however get out of date quite quickly, especially if a patch is introduced or new updates regarding some features, since MMORPGs are continously updating themselves based on the clients.
This book is very detailed and provides all the information you require on jobs, classes, hunt locations, areas to go and how to kill certain bosses, it covers a wide area of items and techniques used in the trade. Its a great companion to the game and will get beginners started, it also provides brief tutorials on how to get to a certain level and the places to go to achieve that, since the game is growing fast and players are reaching higher levels, it may be difficult for new players to enter the game due to this factor.
This book will make sure that you get to an adaquate level so that you can be a great companion to other players in their hunts and accomplishments.
Great book but it does get out of date quite quickly, this book is ideally for the newbie's entering the game apposed to the intermediate and experts who may find their memory and experiences alot better than this published material.
