Talk:Experience Scroll

Does the charactar in question gain skill points as it would from normal levelling?

Yes. Basically it grants you the exact amount of experience points you need to reach level 20 - you can see the experience bar at the bottom of the screen fill up repeatedly for each level you gain - and you receive the usual points and unlocks at each level you pass. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 22:36, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Well, the scroll is useful for newly created characters but then how often you would have a new character at say level 1 or level 2? On top of that, if this is awarded along with EACH character in your account upon your character reaches the 1st birthday, what's the point of getting the experience scroll?? I find it a waste of award as one of the confirm birthday gift. It would be better to award 100 Gems. Paladinofmm (talk) 01:27, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
I would suggest to write a topic bout this on the forum. You opinion isn't helpfull to the person asking this question. I got a total of three without buying and find it highly helpfull. I want to know and document the game as many other wiki users and this helps a lot to get 3 new characters having a headstart in seeing all of the game.Ranique (talk) 23:13, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
Paladino has a very good point, this is useless to a lot of people who have been playing for 1 year. By that time it is common to have most of your characters above level 20, considering that is relatively easy to accumulate experience in GW2 (comparing to about all other MMO's). Let's say you've got 8 character slots and created 5 characters from the very start, it's quite plausible those 5 characters are above level 20. So what are you to do with 5 scrolls? and subsequently, when you've used those scrolls and keep getting more, every year, you will end up having a surplus of these scrolls, which IS a waste. Make the scrolls give any character 5 levels I'd say. There's no doubt it's nice to boost a level 1 character to level 20 just like that, but you will get more scrolls than you have characters to use them on, trust me. 95.166.29.218 09:37, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
It seems like some people would rather have no reward, than a fairly useless one. 109.131.9.57 14:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
No. It seems like people would want a useful reward, rather than a useless or no reward. 95.166.29.218 07:25, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
As Ranique said, please take this to the forums. Don't use the wiki as an outlet for your complaints about the game. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:33, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

I would like to point out that I got the skill points from this to count towards my monthly Skill Point Amasser. I assume this isn't going to stay (level 3 character used and got 17 points to add to monthly). I guess an update accidently reverted this, because it ruined going for monthly to me. 76.64.92.47 00:17, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Hints[edit]

I used this thing on my new Ele right after the intro mission and noticed while playing my Ele a bit more I never seemed to get the Elementalist Attunement Hint (required for completing the Hints achievement thingie). Is this normal behaviour when using this scroll? I had to make yet another Ele (I wasn't going to delete one that I used this scroll on and bought gear for) and levelled her up manually to level 3 and got my hint. So, the question is: does using this scroll interfere with getting hints? The only hint I got from using this scroll was the final utility slot hint. It doesn't matter that much, but people making new toons for hint completion might want to know about this.--Fogeltje (talk) 14:57, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

I have used these on Ranger, Guardian, Elementalist, and Warrior, and can confirm that leveling up this way skips some of the profession specific hints. Like you say, only "final utility slot" showed up. I then played each of these alt characters to around level 28, so I spent a fair amount of time in combat and such. That would seem to imply they only show up at particular levels, when you would "normally" unlock those new abilities. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 17:56, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for confirming.--Fogeltje (talk) 14:30, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
