Today we are going to look at the question that quite a few players of The Secret World end up asking:
“Do you need a guide to get the most out of TSW?”
The MAIN reason for this is because although it is an MMO just like World of Warcraft it has changed some key concepts that you would normally link to a game of this type.
Leveling – In a game like World of Warcraft you simply kill mobs of creatures and complete quests and you will “level up” so although there ARE guides for the game and it will make progress quicker the longer you play the game will equal the level you get too. For instance in WOW you could stay around the starting area and if you killed enough creatures you would eventually level up all the way to the end without seeing anything of the game.
In The Secret World you don’t have levels so to speak, you have your build which makes your character more powerful but progress is made by completing quests. These missions are tough and you will have to actual research online to find some answers!
Builds – This is another difference in TSW as in World of Warcraft there are trees that will complete your build and you just select your playstyle and put your points in place. However in The Secret World it is very open ended and although there are starter builds called “decks” it is still very easy to mess up your build and then you will not be able to change it.
Crafting – This is linked with builds as you will need to understand the crafting system to make weapons and items in the game. This can take a lot of time to learn.
Although you don’t NEED a guide to play The Secret World if you are having problems with the game it is most likely going to be down to the build system and the missions. So it really can help having a good guide that at the very least gives you some hints and tips for some of the tougher missions.
