Newbee Guide, or How to Have a Open Leveling Experience in a Secret World
#2

That’s cool, thanks! :heart_eyes:
(is there by chance graphic version of this? with lines on map or something. for, you know, visual oriented people :smirk:)


#3

That’s something which will have to be added to my lengthy to-do list.

This guide is a re-post of my original guide at the unofficial SWL Forums (which seems to have suddenly closed down over the weekend). My current priority is to re-format my other guide, “How to Build: All Weapons”, for this forum, which will take some time.

My primary concern with adding visual maps is, the guide, as currently written, often combines multiple objectives for a mission into a single instruction which occurs over a large area; I would need to figure out how to match up pins on the maps with the written steps, while also avoiding cluttering the maps with pins and lines.


#4

Thank you so much for this! I been using this for about a week now and its super fast. My goal is trying to run these routes through muscle memory :smiley:
