SP modification Guides:

Note,none of the links below currently work.
They should be repaired shortly.

Templar Guides:

Cabalist Guides:

Hunter Guides:

Consider migrating your guides to the http://www.hellgateaus.info/wiki (http://www.hellgateaus.info/wiki). <!-- s:) -->:)<!-- s:) -->

Do you know of a good guide that belongs here? Please reply to this thread and a moderator will add it to the list!

Links have been updated (ok, now they have <!-- s:mrgreen: -->:mrgreen:<!-- s:mrgreen: --> )

"Engineer armor info" guide note : Stylen had the forethought to save this work before it was lost, but does not take credit (or blame) for its merits or defects. Since the actual author is unknown, we will simply credit Stylen with a "save".

I would migrate my skill guides over to the wiki, but looking at it there is no point as all the skills seem to have their own page.

So I guess someone might as well delete all my skill guide threads then to help clean up the forums.

Actually I guess it isn't necessary to move your guides to the wiki, I will just un-sticky them and link them from this list.

wouldn't it be better to have a separate section for guides...

That was the original idea. To move all the guides to the wiki

Thank you....  :)

Quick thought, as I can see this thread getting "messy", might it be an idea to use this thread for people to suggest threads and actually have a single sticked locked thread where all the links are posted to by a mod ?

I've a guide request: item upgrading.

I've not really seen a comprehensive how to on this.  Questions like:
What changes happen each time I use the nanoforge?
How many times can I upgrade?
How do nanoshards factor in and how to best aquire them?
What upgrades/effects can I expect from the 3000?
How are mods affected?
Best strategies for upgrading and what not to upgrade.

There are bits and pieces laying about the web on the subject, like use limits listed here, but it's a chore to track them all down and some of the info has been outdated by patches.  And some of the finer points really aren't covered that well anywhere at all.

the item gets upgraded, increased by 2 levels.  weapon damage increased and armor protection/shields increase some
How many times can I upgrade?
it was 10 times, but i think the fun patch increased it, not sure how much.
How do nanoshards factor in and how to best aquire them?
u need nanoshards to use the nanoforge 1st time = 1 sharde, 2nd time = 2 shardes, 3rd time = 3 shards, etc.  U get shardes by breaking down items.  The best chance for a shard is with unique, and the worst is white items.
What upgrades/effects can I expect from the 3000?
the upgrade effects vary and r random for your faction.  could be skill boost to armor protection, to various damage increases, luck boost, etc.
How are mods affected?

I believe the patch allows you to upgrade 25 times per item.

Maybe I missed something on the forums, but why don't any of these guide links work? Each one I click on or paste won't work. Same goes for the wiki site. Help!

We recently switched for .net to .com. I imagine all those links still have the .net addresses. Worst case scenario you can find most of those guides in the hellgate london/general forums.

Another thing that might be cool to add are skill trees. I just stopped playing WoW after 4 years and started playing HG:L in SP. Instantly fell in love with it. It would be great to get other players' ideas on some builds and stat allocations, particularly for nightmare/elite modes. Looking to be either a guardian or blademaster. Anyway this can be done?

Another note about the Augmentrex 3000. Price of the upgrades and quality (what you can possibly get) are determined by the level of the item. The higher the level of the item is the better upgrades it can get and the more they'll cost.

I made these back during multiplayer days...

So they apply to the original game; not sure if anything has changed in quests or quest rewards in the mods.

Back in the days, I made a guide named, "the universal quest bug workaround guide". The guide is about how to solve the most basic problems with quests in general, without spoiling the specifics.
I posted it on the original FSS forums so its gone now, but I could rewrite it if  anyone wants me to. Are there any noobs here that would need/want a guide like that?

Definitely write the Guide ...There is always room for more/other information about HG:L, especially Quest issues/information

Ok, I'll try to find time for it this weekend, otherwise it might be a while. My university studies are going to take ALL of my time next week  :?

UPDATE: I've written half of the guide.... gonna finnish it next week

Also, it would be really cool if someone could make an enemy guide, like what each monster does and how you can easily defeat it.
