It's also very outdated and in many cases just wrong. So be careful when using it for anything related to Uthgard.
Got any questions? Submit them to me and I will try to get them answered in our grab bag !

But it is from 2002, which covers the patches from 1.40 to 1.58.
So i had my hopes high, that it would nicely display the world at around that patch.
Looking at todays resources mostly refers to a much later time and patch.

Some of the later versions gave tips on classes and abilities as well, and when you see a guide saying that if you have problems with spells being resisted, you could try and use a lower tier spell, then you know that guide is pretty much useless and inaccurate. (page 167 in the revised prima guide talking about elds)

If you’re having problems with resists, try
using the second-highest spell in that partic-
ular spell line. This can greatly increase your
chance to hit.


So be careful taking prima guides as gospel when it comes to item drops and loot %.

I do not understand why so negative, I think not only in terms item drops and loot %, atlas give you much more information, just must be careful read. What I mean this book have much valuable information for players but also for who wants to return this game to the former time.

just one small example

how much valuable data on just one picture, who understands will understand.

Well it's called the Atlas for a reason, not the Complete Guide to DAoC Game Mechanics :D

I recently bought the atlas, the classic and the SI prima guide used for a few euros and I have been enjoying reading them.

After 2 days, in the beta, I can only say that over 90% same positions mobs in start area. especially now where there are no maps, helps a lot.

Sadly I still have one of the old books sold years and years ago. Could never bring myself to donate it to some half price book store, etc. Wife tried to make me but I just couldn't do it.

Well doll, who's laughing now?!?! ;)

Bist, I still love watching your scout videos. You're awesome. Please don't shoot any mid with the name Spring in it please. :)
