Eye of the North Title Tracks - Ebon Vanguard Title Track

Warriors from Ascalon, the Ebon Vanguard have journeyed to the Far Shiverpeaks to defeat the Charr. As with the other factions that are converging on the Eye of the North, you can do missions for members of the Ebon Vanguard, and earn reputation points for the Ebon Vanguard Title Track.

Talk to an Ebon Vanguard scout in Charr territory to receive the Vanguard Patrol blessing, which grants you reputation points per creature killed in explorable areas. Every 25 reputation points you'll get a random bonus, and talking to a new scout after getting 25 reputation points will also give you a random bonus (usually an increase in the amount of points the Vanguard Patrol blessing grants) as well as some extra reputation points.

The two best areas to farm for reputation points are Dalada Uplands and Sacnoth Valley. As an added bonus you can get a Siege Devourer in both of these areas - their monstrous amounts of hit points and the mad damage they can make farming much quicker and easier.

You can expect to get around 3000 Vanguard reputation points in Dalada Uplands, which will take about an hour to fully clear.

Sacnoth Valley will take between an hour and an hour and a half to completely clear, and will net you around 4500 Vanguard reputation points. Speak to all the scouts to boost your Vanguard Patrol blessing as much as you can, and then clear out the Charr Temple last. With 4 bosses there you should be able to achieve 300 points per boss.

Once you have Rank 1 in the Ebon Vanguard Title Track, talk to Gedrel of Ascalon at the Eye of the North to get the Rebel Yell status effect, which will activate whenever you display the Ebon Vanguard Title Track.

Rebel Yell. Title. You have +5..x armor against damage from Charr. You gain 30..x% more adrenaline when you hit a Charr. You gain 2 energy when you kill a Charr.

Rank, Title, and Ebon Vanguard reputation points needed are listed below:

  • 1 - Agent - 1,000
  • 2 - Covert Agent - 4,000
  • 3 - Stealth Agent - 8,000
  • 4 - Mysterious Agent - 16,000
  • 5 - Shadow Agent - 26,000
  • 6 - Underground Agent - 40,000
  • 7 - Special Agent - 56,000
  • 8 - Valued Agent - 80,000
  • 9 - Superior Agent - 110,000

Rank 1 is required to get Rebel Yell from Gedrel of Ascalon at the Eye of the North. Rank 3 is needed to be able to craft Ebon Vanguard consumables. Rank 4 is needed to be able to craft Charrslayer weapons, and Rank 5 is needed to be able to craft Monument armour.

There are also 12 skills which will be granted when completing quests for Ebon Vanguard NPCs. Their effects obviously increase in line with your Ebon Vanguard Title Track rank.

  • Deft Strike Deft Strike
  • Ebon Battle Standard of Courage
  • Ebon Battle Standard of Honor
  • Ebon Battle Standard of Wisdom
  • Ebon Escape
  • Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support
  • Ebon Vanguard Sniper Support
  • Signet of Infection
  • Sneak Attack
  • Tryptophan Signet
  • Weakness Trap
  • Winds

If you liked Guild Wars: Prophecies, you'll really enjoy doing Ebon Vanguard quests in the Charr Homelands in Eye of the North. It's like old times - wandering the gorgeous countryside, putting the smackdown on Charr - but with enough new features and skills to make it a real challenge.
