OK. I'm probably being really stupid, but I've searched here, the wiki, the Compendium, and in TenTonHammer, but I can't find any reference to 'The Guide'!
'The Guide' looks like a Warforged, just standing there amongst the trainers on the Stormreach harbour quay, to the East of the Leaky Dinghy.
I've only recently started playing using my Mac for DDO, although I've played a small amount previously on the Windows version, but only up to a Lvl 7 Character.
It's on the Mac version that I've encountered this guy; I'd run past him, looking for the wizard trainer, then stopped and backtracked, thinking,"What? I don't remember having seen him before!" So, I clicked on him and he asked me various questions, all fairly intriguing, the first being do I want to improve myself? I thought "that sounds interesting", so I clicked on it. The next thing I knew was, I suddenly appeared to have gained a massive amount of xp - 50,000 - and had shot up a level! I was somewhat stunned and went to the trainer, and yes, that is exactly what had happened. I levelled up and sorted the various stats and went on my way, a little bemused.
SO... I was back in the harbour today, and thought..."I wonder if that bloke is standing there again?" ... and he was! ...and he did the same again... 50,000xp.
Now this is all well and good, but I'm going up too fast to get the best deal on a couple of quests! I was only Thf1/Wiz1, and now I'm Thf1/Wiz3 ...!
Why are there no comments about this bloke and what he does?
