Warhammer Online : Age of Reckoning: Chaos Magus Level 1-5 PvE Guide

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSPosts: 6,696Member

MMORPG.com Warhammer Online Correspondent Jessica Maxson takes us through the first five levels of PvE gameplay in Mythic Entertainment's Warhammer Online.

The Chaos Magus career is a very unique experience in the way you have to control not only yourself and your magic but also the disk under your feet and special 'pets'... Having two personas attack one enemy might seem easy, but it is much harder then you think. Managing when to attack, what persona to use, what mode to have your pet in and watching how many attack points you have left to use your attacks can be tricky, but ultimately, it turns out to be very rewarding.

The starting region for the Chaos race is Norsca. Your starting point is The Unshackled Host. This place is dreary, grey, and composed of mostly stone and dirt. As you look more closely, you'll notice that in some of the stone pillars are glowing blue eyes that move, flying stones and glyphs etched into the ground glowing.

After you take in all the sights it's time to begin our first quests: quite near you is Skulorg Blackhorn, you can tell he has a quest for you because of the green book icon above his head (notice the portal behind him? It's called a Chaos Portal, but for right now it's unimportant). Pick up the quest from Skulorg, it is called Dark Fate and it asks you to go to into the cemetery by Thorshafn Crypt and kill four restless dead and get four bones from them.

     Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't all the classes in a shared starting area have the same quests?  I could swear I've done the same ones as both a magus and zealot.  If so, this is really a guide to this particular starting zone, since it's about the quests, not about the class itself, other than one paragraph devoted to magus' getting the pink horror pet skill.

    1-5?  A guide for 1-5? You're kidding right? Ranks 1-5?

    That's what I was thinking.

    Leveling from 1-5 is so easy , if you need a guide for it, then computer games might not be the right hobby for you. Just follow the quests and hey presto: You're Rank (!) 5. And how to do that is pretty much explained in the manual and the online help.

    What would be more interesting are guides on RvR, PvP between ranks 12 and 18, when you are just advancing to the next tier, but don't have a good set of skills, yet. How to approach keep sieges, strategies on leveling overall: scenarios, quests or open RvR, etc. Or what to do solo, when you're logging in during off-peak hours and want to advance your char. Those things are a lot more challenging!

    It bears repeating what was previously said about other 1-5 guides here.  WAR drew in quite a few players that haven't had previous MMO experience.  For someone who hasn't been through the early-level ringer thousands of times like us MMO vets, guides like this really provide some foundation for them to build their experiences in-game on.  Without them, its likely that new players would get frustrated and fed up without a little light to guide them.

    We were all new at some point - and to a lot of us its probably mundane to even see guides like this available.  Just remember there are people who try the game and leave it within a few hours because they're lost.  Sure, they aren't the power players we all are, but hey, everyone deserves the chance to enjoy a great game.
