Hi, I would like to know if it's possible to get and activate an elite tome in Pre, and how we can get it ? There was long time that I play this game, and I never see any tome in Pre, but I see lot of tome seller in this time (3 this week who are seling N, En, E, and elite ranger tomes !) Thanks for answer.
PS : Sorry for my bad english, I'm learning english, I'm just a little french girl :-p
Ok... So, I have a few questions about it, this is illegal to use this items ? Could we be banned for using this item ? How we can do for see when we can go in the Guild Hall, if it's legal of course...
It was, as Lord and Trader stated, a "glitch" or accidental allowance that happened a very long time ago. Some players took advantage of the moment, and went to Guild Hall, loaded up their characters with Tomes, weapons and other goodies you could not find or get in pre otherwise. However, once A-Net discovered the error, players caught using the items were either forced to sear, or delete the character on threat of a permanent ban. This was done to remove any unfair advantage post items would give a pre player. Many players who did not get caught held on to those items for a very long time. Since the creation of GW2, A-Net does not police GW1 as heavily as they used to. Now these items are coming out of the shadows so to speak.
This is not entirely true, Tomes came with Nightfall. Which means, the ''glitch'' was already removed by that time. So there's something else that, makes people able to ''ferry'' tomes into pre. Just so you know ^.^
Nightfall was released in late October 2006. I do believe the glitch was addressed in 2007.
Took a look at some of those Items few days ago. Risky if u ask me, wont risk my Acc for this little Bonus-Dmg. U can kick ass in pre with the gear u get here, if you play smart ;D The only thing u get from those Items is a bit faster run on Northlands but if that is worth the risk?
