    Yup I thought of this before, but after a tiny research, I can only 'wear' the monument armor among all these:

    Elite Canthan Armor
    Elite Exotic Armor
    Imperial Ascended Armor
    Silver Eagle Armor
    Monument Armor
    Granite Citadel Elite Armor
    Granite Citadel Exclusive Armor
    Granite Citadel Ascended Armor
    Marhan's Grotto Elite Armor
    Marhan's Grotto Exclusive Armor
    Marhan's Grotto Ascended Armor

    Now I shouldn't have roll a Dervish in the first place lol

    Obsidian armor is by far the most expensive.

    WiK came across as a cheap way to get HoM weapons, because (1) it's fun to play anyway, and (2) you earn money on top of weapons, which you can use to buy destroyer weapons if you choose to.
    Nice, now my next goal would be WiK :) Just hope the gw wiki has clear instructions to guide me along the way

    There are two ways to go through the War in Kryta content: following an overarcing quest or without the quest. Regardless of which route you take, your character must have access to both Prophecies and Eye of the North and have completed at least one. The quest-method is quicker: it allows the player to skip some dialogues and encounters; it also directs you through each step. The do-it-yourself method gives the player a richer view of the events leading up to the conclusion. Each method has its own walkthrough

    Thanks so much Zahra & Alaris.

    1 last thing though.
    I am using the 7 heroes support from http://www.gwpvx.com/Category:All_wo...vE_team_builds

    Although it has quite a high rating, this team may fail me sometimes. So for WiK journey, should I stick to my current team(with maybe some runes upgrade)? or should I use a new team set-up recommended for WiK?

    edit*

    How about this ROJway or discordway? both look good to me.

    I'm not the best to ask. I tend to use my own blend of heroes and skills, which is probably far from optimal (but at least I know how to tweak it).

    I did WiK with my derv and my ... ritualist? I forget. I used pretty standard bars if I remember correctly (minion master, some interrupts, spirits, and 2+ healers). For healing, I often use a N/Rt healer, as well as give some secondary healing to many heroes that have extra place on their bar.

    Some missions require careful pulling and prioritizing, but otherwise, your build should work afaik.

    I second the suggestion of using WiK for Oppressor's weapons and using whatever gold earned to buy Destroyer weapons. Once you get to a certain point in WiK, you will have the option of picking up "Wanted" bounties. These are like Zaishen bounties, where you have to go out and kill a boss. For reward, you get gold and War Supplies. War Supplies can be converted to medals, which then can be traded for Oppressor's weapons.

    Once the Wanted opens up, there are three bosses that are plot related and not repeatable: Inquisitor Bauer, Inquisitor Lashona, and Inquisitor Lovisa. If you want the max reward, do them in HM. Other bosses are on rotation and are repeatable. The schedule is listed here. If you do the repeatable bosses every day in HM, in 21 days you'll have enough War Supplies for one Oppressor's weapon, plus 12.75k gold (not counting drops) to put toward Destroyer weapons.

    Now, some of these bosses are harder than others in HM, so you may want to pick and choose. A tip: there are three Kessex Peak bosses worth 15 WS each. It's a long walk to Kessex and may not seem like a good deal. However, the bosses are all in line with each other, so you can tackle them in one trip. Like Zaishen Bounties, you can hold maximum of three Wanteds at a time. So what I normally do is hold onto the Kessex Peak bosses till I get all three, then I make a trip out there to take care of them all.

    As to heroes, I'm not a fan of Discord on my melee characters, because IMO running a discord caller bar on my melee limits my efficiency. Instead, I like to go with a good bar for myself, some self sufficient heroes (in case I die), plus some physical buff. For example, in the case of the 7-heroes support you're using, I'm not a big fan of spirits (no summon) or RoJ (poor timing) on heroes. I would tweak the team and replace one or two of those for physical buffs. Obviously playstyles differ, so you should try a few tweaks and see what fits you.

    Personally I have completed WiK with 8 characters including a Dervish and the team you linked looks just fine for that purpose.

    You could consider putting Strength of Honor on the smite monk to boost the damage on your Dervish or if you do some of the quests in HM and think you have too little defense, maybe swap it out for a prot version.

    Discord I don't like, but I think we shouldn't start that kind of discussion again

    Runes do help, though the health ones (vitae, survivor, etc.) can be quite costly. I try to keep my heroes over 500 HP (healers 550+) and balance sup/major skill runes accordingly.

    Since you seem to be set on doing WiK, here's an advice:

    If you run into a problem in WiK (namely, enemies keep rezzing and you can't kill them off), consider equipping Frozen Soil (ranger skill in Wilderness Survival) on either yourself or one of your heroes. You will need a few points into Wilderness Survival to keep it up and you won't be able to use resurrection spells, but at least it will keep most of them (can't help those skills being used out of range) from popping back up like daisies for a while.

    Okay people here's an update:

    I have reached


    Rezone one more time to the Shining Blade camp to unlock another dialogue:
    Dialogue 4: Livia Recruits Zinn, which unlocks:
    Lion's Arch Keep, which has

    Shining Blade Bounty quests.
    Collectors for War Supplies and Confessor's Orders

    Hidden Asura lab in Divinity Coast.

    Escort missions for Courier Falken.
    Complete Thackeray's scavenger hunt

    I understand that Lion arch has the
    1)wanted by the shining blade
    2)people that give reward

    I would like to ask what do I need to do in Hidden Asura lab in DC? I don't see any lab there And is the escort mission worth doing?

    And can i proceed to 'Thackeray's scavenger hunt' event now?
