Eye of the North Title Tracks - the Asura Title Track

Along with the Norn, the Asura are a new race introduced in Eye of the North. About the best way to describe them is that they look a bit like Stitch from "Lilo & Stitch".

The Asura Title Track is a new Title Track to go along with the new race, and represents you standing in the eyes of this very magic-focussed race.

The reputation points you need for each rank are in line with the other new Title Tracks:

  • Rank 1 - 1,000 - Not Too Smelly
  • Rank 2 - 4,000 - Not Too Dopey
  • Rank 3 - 8,000 - Not Too Clumsy
  • Rank 4 - 16,000 - Not Too Boring
  • Rank 5 - 26,000 - Not Too Annoying
  • Rank 6 - 40,000 - Not Too Grumpy
  • Rank 7 - 56,000 - Not Too Silly
  • Rank 8 - 80,000 - Not Too Lazy
  • Rank 9 - 110,000 - Not Too Foolish

As you reach the following ranks extra service will become available to you in Asuran towns and outposts:

  • Not too Clumsy: Consumables
  • Not too Boring: Weaponsmith
  • Not too Annoying: Armor crafter

The usual methods are available for gaining reputation points. Completing quests and dungeons are the main ones, as well as slaying creatures while under the Asuran Bodyguard blessing, obtained from NPCs near Resurrection Shrines in Asuran explorable areas.

There are two main areas to gain large amounts of reputation points. Magus Stones has a large number of easy to defeat Wind Riders. Clearing out all the enemies in this Eye of the North map area should bring you between 3000 and 4000 reputation points.

The other key area to gain Asuran reputation points is Arbor Bay. There are large numbers of low level creatures here, and I've found that if you zig-zag across the map, they are spaced out evenly enough to maintain any rampage bonuses. On a typical run you should be able to gain between 3000 and 6000 reputation points.

Additionally for each Polymock match you win you can gain between 40 and 90 reputation points, depending on your opponent.

Once you have obtained Rank 1 in the Title Track, and have spoken to Lexx in Rata Sum, you can display the Title to get the Edification status effect:

"Edification. Title. You have +5...15 Energy while in Asura territory."

With the Asura announced as one of the playable races in Guild Wars 2, it makes sense to try and max the Asura Title Track, and add it to your Hall of Monuments, so you can gain any bonuses for your Guild Wars 2 characters.

If you're an Elementalist in Eye of the North, the Asura energy bonus as well as the large number of clumped enemies in explorable areas should provide an easy route to a high rank in the Asura Title Track.
