Can I play with someone who owns a different set of campaigns?
- Yes, for PvP areas in the Battle Isles, and in any campaigns or expansions you both have. For example, if you and your friend both own the Nightfall campaign, you can both play together in Nightfall, even if your friend also owns the Factions campaign. If you do not also own the Factions campaign, you will not be able to join your friend in the Factions campaign.
I abandoned a primary quest in Eye of the North, how do I re-take the quest?
- Abandoned primary quests in Eye of the North can be retaken through the "seek guidance" option at the Scrying Pool in the Hall of Monuments.
How do I get the special bonus items for my game?
- Type "/bonus" in a town or outpost and it'll add all the bonus items to your inventory if you have space and don't already have that item created on that character. You can list the special items on your account by typing "/bonusitems". You can delete any bonus items you don't want by dragging them to the trash can on your inventory bar. You can recreate them again by using "/bonus" command again; however, take care with this as some special items cannot be remade - especially the miniature bonus items. These and other commands are listed on the Special commands page.
How do I start a mission?
- In Prophecies and Factions, missions are started by pressing the "Enter Mission" button in Party Window. In Nightfall and Eye of the North, missions are started by talking to a mission starter, who can be identified by the rotating green shield and two swords symbol floating above their head.
I have a level 20 character, why don't I have 200 attribute points?
- The remaining 30 attribute points can be obtained by completing two quests in your character's native campaign: Forgotten Wisdom and The Hero's Challenge for Prophecies characters, Lost Treasure and An Unwelcome Guest for Factions characters or Rising in the Ranks: First Spear and Rising in the Ranks: Master Sergeant for Nightfall characters. See the individual quest articles for more information.
