    Are we able to do a class guide that covers topics from several of the guide categories? So we are able to cover all things from seal stones to talent builds etc all within the same guide.

    Small question, can we also create guides that contain multiple possable categories?
    for example the 4 stated below could be put together into "getting to max and how to gear up then",
    image


    GUIDE CATEGORIES:
    Recommended Equipment Guide for Riders that are Level 25+
    Seal Stone Guide for Riders that are Level 25+
    Leveling in Parna’s Coast
    Leveling in Tritael Rift
    and also does "Recommended Equipment Guide for Riders that are Level 25+" mean the "normal" base eq stat wise, as what each class should have?
    or also specific things for each class, as cdr/raw dmg ,%phy def/%hp, crit dmg/phy dmg differ depending on playstyle,
    since if specific is meant by it, a new sub categorie for each class would be needet for gearing up the different classes.

    Since we are missing up to date class guides for almost any class, you probaply can.

    @Damokleezz Yes you are welcome to combine guides, Rider! Just be sure to indicate this at the top of your post.

    @Rele You can draft either or you can combine them both. We're not too restrictive on the categories. Write a guide you think other Riders would find useful for their gameplay! ;-) For your second question, there is no limit to the number of winners we choose.

    This is a great idea! But I'm puzzled, why would you want guides for +25 players?

    If somebody makes it to level 25, then I think they've got a pretty good handle on their class and the game. What Icarus desperately needs are newbie guides. Guides that teach new players how to play their class and so forth.

    Still, your heart is in the right place and I still think this is a great idea.

    @CuddleWings How do you judge the accuracy of information ? Just looked into the guide for the class I play, hopping for something new or interesting and got irritated by some missinformation at the first place.

    This is mostly be basic information - for example stats on items/equips and mounts, Rider.
    We understand guides will be a little more subjective due to various play styles. :-)

    I also encourage Riders to to hit "Insightful" on guides they find particularly useful! This can assist us in judging a little bit.
    Best of luck to all Riders! :-D

    The rules said pictures used in the guide must be from he official riders of icarus game. So does the maps of where to find a certain familiar in the wikis count? I used a few(a lot) of those in mine and was worrying if they are okay to use.
