View Full Version : Pre-searing
Hi, I finally am able to play the game (graphics/mem problem until yesterday) and I'm wondering, should I stick around in pre-searing until I finish all the quests off? I do want to see pretty much everything in the game, however I also want to start PvP'ing sooner rather than later.
So the question is this: if I skip through the pre-searing part of the game will I have missed important skills that I can't get later on? Or should I just take my time and enjoy the sweet sweet scenery
Why rush? for PvP you could always create a pre-made char to ease your itch :D . Farm scales as much as you can since it'll be somewhat rare in the post. Take your time and enjoy the game. For skills, you could always get in the post but it is easier to collect them in the pre.

Take your time, that scenery won't smell so sweet for long. :(
Any skills that you miss can be bought later on for a nominal ammount of gold and a skill point.
Heh, actually I want to catch up with Xirc/Raph 'cuz I wanna weasle my way into Dii :lol:.
I think taking my time is what I plan on doing, I just don't want to use premades... I like building things myself rather than being given a template.
So scales eh? I've been selling those too... any other good tips :D?
Edit: taxus posted b4 me... thanks for the input taxus
the good thing about pre-searing is you can try out each secondary profession before you actually take it and are stuck with it for a good while. So the smart answer is, if this is your first character stick around pre-searing for a while and get some levels thru missions and try out the different build combos while you can.
if you do move into post-searing at an early age you can go and start pvping in the ascelon arena, but with the limited skills acquired youre going to get pwnedkthxbye. not to mention it will be more difficult to attain said new skills in post-searing because the missions are not designed to be accomplished at a lower level (read: they are pretty hard)
dont spend your life in pre-searing, but use it for what its worth, get some items, get some resources, get your "collecters set" armor, get some levels, and then get on with the game.
one thing that that was misleading about the game as i read 1,000 fan sites before purchase is, there's still a lot of content in the game. and IMO it would be hard to sit down and be effective in PvP without putting the time in with your character and gaining the skills via missions.
in other words.. dont be in such a rush. its not EQ/WoW where you move from the lvl 1-5 zone to the 5-10 zone to the 10-15 zone.. etc. the game progression will lead you to where you need to go when the time is right.
I expected to take some time, I just don't want to take a inordinate amount of time (my thought process - leave the baby zone asap so I can get the skills I need)... since I've been persuaded to stay in pre-sear I have another question (hopefully someone will awnser).
Can someone tell me where the elem and monk trainers are? or is there a listing somewhere of all of them (I'll be running a Nec/War and a Mes/Ra once I get most of the skills I'll want).

man you must have read my mind i was just about to ask that question! i've only had one elementalist quest and a couple of monks quest pre searing. i need some more skills for elemenatlists (currently onlly have 3)
I used the search function (thought it was broken :confuse:)
Heres some info I found provided by Aquarius Minos
Here is a list of all the skill trainers in Pre Searing, along with what skill sets they train.

If anyone knows the location for the 3rd mesmer, elementalist and monk, please add them to my list.
Hope this helps.
theres actually 4 necro trainers i dunno which u missed
No, there are only 3 Necromancer trainers. Elementalists, Mesmers, and Monks do not have a third trainer so do not concern yourself about those.
As for Aiden...crud. I wasn't aware there was a trainer down there, I must have kept missing him despite passing through the area.
Just so you guys know, I didn't compile that list. It was courtesy of Aquarius Minos . So thanks again for that list AM... if anyone can list where the 4th necro trainer is that would be helpfull... also I think in the newcomer forum a list of trainers, and what items we should be hoarding should be stickied so it's easier to find for the upcoming newcomers :D
