Recommended Posts

Friends! 

Inhabitants of Arinar more than ever need the wisdom and experience of true warriors, hardened by the fires of battle; merchants that know the path to prosperity; blacksmiths whose armour is stronger than dragon’s scales; and just normal thrill-seekers, to whom boredom is worse the death. 

Right now you will get the chance to share your knowledge in the
new guides contest “Mysteries of Wisdom”

What to do? 
Write a guide/article/manual about something that you are truly well-versed in. It could be fights with some boss, experience in trading, completing some quests or events, a detailed analysis of some class, a guide on crafting and so on. 

What will be evaluated? 
- originality and creativity 
- relevance, informative value and practical benefits of the work; 
- accessibility of the text (as guides are most often used by beginners); 
- decor and presentation (text formatting, headings, structure, pictures (gifs), screenshots, icons and so on). 

Don’t forget to evaluate and comment on guides of other participants, since everyone needs support and constructive feedback. 

Forbidden: 
- using any materials that violate the rules of the forum; 
- writing guides about actions that break the licence agreement; 
- deliberate publication of false information in order to confuse other players; 
- plagiarism and copying of already existing topics on the forum. 

How to participate? 
- it is necessary to create a separate topic in this forum section, and put your work in it; 
- the header of the topic should contain the nickname and server of your character. 

And most importantly — rewards awaiting their victors: 

1 place: 10000 Miracle Coins and any 1 non-class manual of your choosing (except the “Magic Resistance” manual) 
2 place: 8000 Miracle coins and 50 Seeker’s Stamina Elixirs 
3 place: 7000 Miracle coins and 40 Seeker’s Stamina Elixirs 
4 place: 6000 Miracle coins and 30 Seeker’s Stamina Elixirs 
5 place: 5000 Miracle coins and 20 Seeker’s Stamina Elixirs 

Incentive prizes are also possible. 
The most deserving works will be moved and pinned at the top of their respective sections, to light the way for the young and inexperienced warriors of Arinar. 

Dates: 
The contest starts today and will last until 23:59 22.03.2020, after which it will no longer be possible to publish topics in this section. 
We will need some time to evaluate every work, so the winners will be announced no later than 27.03.2020

Let the wisdom be with you! 
AIGRIND

Ahm... hmm... that also includes perhaps a Vampirism Book? (Increases Vamp Parameter to +6% ~)

About that, @Akasha is it an error (that leads to DQ) if two contestants accidentally write a guide with the same subject (such as a class or a way to farm) even if, eventually, they write in a totally different style and/or totally different things?

I have to discuss with my colleagues tomorrow. I personally would have applied the rule of "the first contestant who releases the topic, stays with the topic" meaning, no double topics. Also to avoid stealing information from one another, but the contest rules weren't written by me and I don't know if this is subject to change. We will make a decision for the future, but all topics release before shall be accepted.

Hmm so it is also good to be quite fast on posting the work. Alright then.

I think so, because once someone else has published a load of information about it. It's hard to prove that you didn't copy anything from it.. and so on.. and it's even harder for judging which work deserves the prize, but we can always see which one was released first. :smile:

I made a charmer guide as well - I think I'll work on something else. Gathering already the materials. I just need some time.

we already have all the level and rarity of items disclosed in our guides, and everyone has a basic knowledge of it, or shsould have. This isn't the best choice in my opinion.:nea:

Patience, Patience. The thing am working on takes a bit more time and the one I have now Is kinda low. 

Hey! I don't want you to burn out with too many tasks, take your time. I'm not that content or patient towards them, tho.

The main problem is this one indeed. The project I'm making is quite big, so I'm trying to write it as soon as I get some free time. But I usually have organized schedules, so i don't think it will burn me out entirely... I hope... :vp-looking:
