Bow Type[edit]

It looks as though Aidan is using an Ivory Bow, which according to its page, is a hornbow. Is he the only ranger that uses a hornbow instead of a longbow? Or is this ivory bow a longbow in disguise? --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 05:03, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Uhh end-game nightfall longbow has the same skin, probably a long bow I'd say--Ʀєʟʟɑ 22:33, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
well in eye of the north, Aidan definitely uses a hornbow as his barrage takes much longer than 2 seconds to "activate" 96.13.32.182 22:41, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Skills?[edit]

Anyone else think he needs a total skill change? I vote an Expert's Dexterity build with Focused Shot and Read the Wind for Eye of the North. Make him much more sniper, much less horrible barrager. For Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall I say a Kindle Arrows+Incendiary Arrows build, which is basically switching his elite for something more useful. That would make him more "survivor" which is the big word describing him, and much more "fiery" which is the meaning of his name.72.161.115.13 17:45, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Thing is Incediary arrows is proph only. --Sam6555 15:04, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I kind've feel like they could have at least made him a Cripshot in EotN or something...if you can cap it there, he should be able to have it.Erring Ryft 02:31, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Go Aidan[edit]

I like aidan, he has something so "pre" going on, also as a character. Hes like that quiet contributor who nobody notices, always level headed and never loud or unthoughtful. Deffo my fave henchy character wise. Shogun 02:53, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

You got to the page of Aidan yet still managed to type Aiden? :D Yea, he's the wise and calm member of the original gang. -- ab.er.rant User Ab.er.rant Sig.png 15:01, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
/facepalm, i fail, corrected it. I have a friend called Aiden from back in school who i quite often talk to on msn, guess im so used to typing it that way i just did it without thinking :P. Shogun 00:47, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Billy Mays here! Tired of those annoying monsters? Want to kill them quicker?(cough) Ahem...I really need to stop watching those old commercials(cough cough) >.> -Kage No Yugata 10:09, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Oct/8/09 Prophecies update[edit]

Yaaay, he doesn't totally suck anymore! Infact he probably puts out some good AoE DPS now if ya put down a FW & Winnow spirit near him ...he's still laggin behind the other henchmen on spike damage but he should be sturdier now atleast. PS: Since he doesn't have any attacks that bypass blocking... Lightning Reflexes or Serpent's Quickness probably would have been a much better choice for DPS than spamming Determined Shot is. --ilrUser ilr deprav.png 23:26, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

So... does he actually wield a lightning bow or does he just cast Conjure Lighting for giggles? :) Cirian 01:49, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
I was wondering this too. Henchmen are believed to use plain white weapons, I think. Manifold 16:56, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
I'll try to test this once I'm home. Like Hexing some target with Iron Mist and see if Aidan can damage it.--189.83.150.179 17:09, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Spawning[edit]

During the quest Stone Summit Beastmasters I was surprised to see that Aidan had spawned around the curve in the trail past Thorgrim Beastlasher. He seemed to be in a mob of Snow Ettin and died fairly quickly after I spotted him. Anyone have a guess on why he's there? - SeaGlass 01:56, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

He's part of the quest. If you read the dialogue in the link you made, you'd see that. -- Konig/talk 02:43, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
I missed that - his location strikes me as odd though, as he is farther along the trail than the boss that you kill to complete the quest. - SeaGlass 05:03, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
Multiple prophecies quests has the main GW group (devona, cynn, mhenlo, aidan - eve should be part of it, but she isn't around with the group before the Southern Shiverpeaks) hidden in it - not necessarily along the path, but in the area(s) that take place. -- Konig/talk 05:21, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Charr Reinforcements[edit]

He should spam during this quest but it isn't shown in the location. Can someone confirm if he spam or not during this quest (ranger & tyrian only) ? Ich bin marc 16:18, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
