    Hero Tokens - best use?

    Just curious if there's a consensus on when these Hero weapons are useful/fun to use.

    Specific Quests/Content? (Colo/Aerbax?)
    Power leveling noobs?
    PK(L) toys?

    I've never used the ones I've received and am curious if I have any good use for them other than eye candy.

    The best use that I've found is to sell them.

    The wand you get is cold damage and I have not found a use for it. I don't get that excited about them.

    Now, if they added fire and slash....
    Get it right and get on with it.

    I've wondered about this too. I have about a pack full that I've been saving for that special occasion where hero tokens become hot stuff, or they can be used for something else.

    I've heard that the Ice Wand was good on the TM's in Coll, but never got a chance to test.

    i find that with a 100/100 coord/quick and spec max melee + brassed bow, the moars/moarsmen hit me less than 3% of their swings.

    i do admittedly use mukkir spear to give an extra 4% melee mod tho.

    i just wish there was a way to not get evaded 50% of the time. that's the frustrating part as a missile character standing in point blank surrounded by enemies.

    Leveling noobs is by far the best (and only?) use for them. You can put a level 5 melee in fiun and get to 50 pretty fast (with a little debuff help until around level 20).

    I've tested this a couple times and its much worse than CS bludge with Tusker Fists.

    Ice wand equals level 5 to 50 in under an hour with a little help at GW spots. you just need someone to stand on the spawn and keep the Mobs lin one area. takes a minute to get it set up smooth, but after that easy breazy. just make sure you get in a tree that's high enough to avoid any stragglers. to that end i suggest a kit of 1 ice wand and one vaulters crystal.

    maybe people don't realize you're talking about using the spell built into the wand and not casting regular spells with your level 5 mage.

    So you're saying this would work for a level 5 Swordsman just as well.

    Gotta love wand monkeying. Hey, even the big boys get the Soul Bound Casting Staff to play with.
