  • returning player - form + tome of ascension questions

    I'm back to the game after a couple years away. I just got a Tome of Ascension from the "boss encounter" quest. Should i use it on any of my current toons?

    Hybris II
    PC I
    Mother I
    Risen Ogre I
    Grand Oak I

    Lurker IV
    LF III
    Captian Isabela II

    Dragonling I
    Cassandra I
    Sentinel Shadow I
    Withered I
    Sentinel Archer I
    Herald I
    Fereldan Teyrn I
    Velann I
    King Cailan I (x2)
    Arcane Horror I
    Corypheus I
    FEO I
    GWB I

    Also, i'm currently running PC in my form. Is he the "best" of the LC that i have?

    PC is the most versatile LC that you have right now since he can boost warriors and dwarves. The Mother is probably "better", but only with a blighted squad. I wouldn't recommend using your tome on any of the heroes you currently have. Save it for when you get a hero that will be more useful later on.

    In case you weren't aware, the LC key event was recently revamped and drops lots of solid LCs.

      Agree, if it’s your only tome, I’d say hold on to it for now. It won’t be long before you have more worthy candidates. In addition to the LC yellow key nexus, see if you can build a team to run the Origins gauntlet. It’ll remind you a lot of what you may remember from long ago, and it drops excellent heroes worthy of that tome. Good luck, and welcome back!

        thanks guys.

        i beat the LC nexus about 95% of the time right now with my current form. I need ~25 more "gold urns" to run the origins event. i'm only level 42.

          Running the weekly nexus events on Insane is also a worthwhile endeavor once you can manage it, especially since you have very few legendary heroes. The XP and gold rewards are decent, the drops are almost as good as ludicrous, and the difficulty really isn't that bad. It's a big jump from Insane to Ludicrous though.

            Wecome back

            I agree, your heroes aren't good enough to use the tome, I would save it for a better toon.
            If you play gaunlet you will get pretty good heroes, more tomes and good gear.

              You've got soooo much to work on my friend. Right now Epics aren't worth mentioning at the moment, except the newly reworked Blights and Wardens. Keep on pulling! A lot of good heroes are now in the gold packs.

                  What's done is done, but Lyrium Fenris is currently a completely useless hero. Fingers crossed that he gets a revamp. Same goes for almost all of the DA2 companions though, excepting Varis. Luckily tomes are not hard to come by anymore with the Origin gauntlet and revamped nexus events dropping them pretty regularly.

                    that's why i went ahead and used 2. seem to get them regulary in origins so far, *knock on wood*. right now LF is one of my red team anchors, until i get better.

                      I agree with Kidnova, I think it is better to keep tomes and wait to get better heroes, even if they are easy to get things could change.
                      I think you should try to get some good heroes at gaunlet or open some BP to improve your squad.

                      What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                      It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                      To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                      What happens if I break the rules?
                      At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                      Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                      For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                      Posting Suggestions
                      In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                      1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                      Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                      2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                      3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                      4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                      5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                      6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                      7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                      In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
