Notes

  • You may bring up to two Henchmen into this mission.
  • International Districts usually contain higher concentrations of players than home districts.
  • Tips for getting into teams:
    • Having higher ranking in the Hero Title Track may help as rank discrimination is often used.
    • Having more campaigns and more skills unlocked for use will expand your build possibilities.
    • Try to learn and use more popular/requested builds and/or professions.
    • Play with your friends, guild or other players close to your rank.
