Vanquisher title track

This title is granted to a character for defeating all of the foes in each explorable area of a campaign while in Hard Mode. A character's progression can be tracked on the World Map: areas that have been vanquished will have a gold design around the name, while unvanquished areas will be red. Note that if your entire party reaches -60% death penalty and all of your party members are dead, you are returned to the last visited outpost and must restart the area.

Title1 Campaign Areas vanquished Grand Total of Monsters (min-max) Average Number of Monsters
Tyrian Vanquisher Prophecies 54 8,746 - 11,125 184
Canthan Vanquisher Factions 33 4,806 - 6,614 173
Elonian Vanquisher Nightfall 34 7,676 - 9,143 247
Master of the North2 Eye of the North 15 4,472 - 4,940 314
1 These titles are all individual and independent title tracks, with only one level each.
2 There is no Vanquisher title for EotN; instead, vanquishing EotN areas counts toward the Master of the North title track.

Rewards

Vanquisher trim around explorable area names

Upon vanquishing an area, all players in the party will receive gold and experience equal to 5 times the number of foes. In certain regions, they will also receive faction or reputation points based on the number of foes:

Region Faction/Reputation Multiplier
Echovald Forest Kurzick faction 50x
The Jade Sea Luxon faction
Istan and Kourna Sunspear Promotion Points 5x
Vabbi and The Desolation Lightbringer points
Far Shiverpeaks Norn reputation points
Charr Homelands Ebon Vanguard reputation points
Tarnished Coast Asuran reputation points

Notes

  • Killing tamable pets will add to the counter for the current area, increasing the gold and XP reward, but they are not required to complete an area. Since they're trivial to kill, it's usually worthwhile to do so.
  • Foes killing each other will also count towards the kill total for the area - the party does not have to kill everything first-hand.
  • Vanquishing of a zone can be repeated as many times as one wishes. It will remain marked in gold on the map, but the counter will be reset each time you enter the zone. You will still gain gold and experience for re-vanquishing each area based on the number of monsters you kill.
  • Monsters that pop up, such as Plague Devourers (Prophecies), Oni (Factions), and Mandragors (Nightfall) only count if you make them pop up before you vanquish all other foes. However, it is still possible for them to pop up after the area is vanquished.
Image:Bug.png Bug! Defeating the last enemy of an area has caused some players' games to freeze and close. However, the credit for completing that area IS logged in the Vanquisher title track.
Image:Bug.png Bug! There are occasions in Factions in which most groups of Jade Brotherhood are not counted towards the total vanquished until they are within radar range. This can be advantageous to the player, but it is not known whether some certain areas with Jade Brotherhood are more easily vanquishable than others as you must pass by them in order to clear the area of other foes.

Foe counts per area

The actual number of foes in each area is somewhat variable, due to the randomness in the number of creatures that may spawn in a given group. The numbers below reflect the range of foes seen in actual gameplay experience by GuildWiki users.

  • Since pop-up groups only count if you activate them, areas known to contain a large number of avoidable pop-ups are marked in the tables below.
  • Many quests can significantly affect the number of enemies that appear in an area. These quests are noted with a %b2; if they increase the number of enemies and a %bc; if they decrease the number of enemies.

For more detailed notes and strategies pertaining to specific areas, please refer to that area's article.

1 Canthan born characters who have completed An Unwelcome Guest will find no enemies at all when they enter Zen Daijun; you will need to kill a tiger or crane to get credit for vanquishing the area. Having any non-Canthan character in the party will cause enemies to spawn as normal. This is a special case; do not set the minimum in the table to 1! Also, because chest spawns are tied to monster spawns, no Locked Chests will appear in this or either of the following situations.
2 If anyone in the party has both The Drunken Master and Chasing Zenmai active (does not have to be the same person), you can vanquish Bukdek Byway by simply defeating Drinkmaster Tahnu. The Hard Mode indicator will appear gold when you enter the area, however the title and the map will not update until after you kill the Drinkmaster. Each quest by itself will still reduce the number of enemies. The following quests, on the other hand, must not be active for this to work, as they will still spawn additional enemies: Eliminate the Jade Brotherhood, Eliminate the Am Fah, The Afflicted Guard.
3 If someone in the party has the primary quest A Meeting With the Emperor active, you can vanquish this area easily. You can find someone in Zin Ku Corridor who has just completed the Tahnnakai Temple mission and has Hard Mode unlocked on their account if you don't know anyone who has the quest. Be sure, that Togo and Mhenlo will follow you. Otherwise, it will not work. Note that completing A Meeting With the Emperor is optional, but it is often overlooked since it is an easy and fast quest to complete. You can get a ferry to Arborstone with someone who has the quest The Count's Daughter to keep A Meeting With the Emperor for later use. Check Explorable page for a map of where to go (to avoid triggering Jade Brotherhood).

Notes

  • A general strategy is to save your death penalty removal items for vanquishing the more difficult areas. In particular, keeping more than one Powerstone of Courage in reserve can be useful, though expensive, considering materials costs.
  • Some Consumables such as the Grail of Might, Essence of Celerity, and Armor of Salvation buff your party making it easier to vanquish difficult areas.
  • If you have problems vanquishing, there is a strategy which can prevent the whole party's defeat at 60% Death Penalty. If you vanquish with heroes, you can flag one back in a safe area, with less than 60% dp and with no res available. This will cause the whole team to respawn once the other 7 members are dead.
  • Death Pact Signet is also useful for this, since it kills the user with zero Death Penalty if the target dies again. If the party is in big trouble, this can be used to cause a semi-artificial party wipe with lower overall DP than a regular wipe, resurrecting everyone in a safe place and giving you another chance to finish the mob with full preparation, but leaving you further from the deadly 60% party-wide DP. It may also help prevent a wipe by raising fallen allies faster and with higher health and energy than most other resurrection skills.

Synergetic titles

  • Cartographer: since you will have cleared all enemies from an area, it should then be easy to map the entire location, and you can use the red/gold completion markers on the world map to keep track of which areas you have scraped.
  • Reputation/Allegiance titles: Friend of the Kurzicks/Luxons in Factions, Sunspear and Lightbringer in Nightfall, and Asura, Deldrimor, Ebon Vanguard, and Norn in Eye of the North. Obtaining the various bounties associated with these titles while vanquishing an area will net you a considerable amount of reputation points in addition to the points awarded for vanquishing the area.
  • Treasure Hunter: Bring along some Lockpicks to open all the Locked Chests in each area. While not as quick or as money-efficient as plain chest running, it still adds a few points for each area.

The author originally imagined two new TIE variants, named Vanquisher and Ravager. He later decided there were already plenty of TIE variants and so decided to reuse the names for Star Destroyers.
