PostPosted: Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:33 pm    Post subject: Celerity Reply with quote

When Celerity was implemented into the game as the last power that had been available since the beginnings of the city to become affiliated with a Guild, just about everyone went and ran for it. And really, there is nothing wrong with this power. Everyone can use it. Well, almost...

This power is great in combination with Stamina. Where Stamina pulls your AP gauge into length, Celerity learns to fill it, allowing you to move your vampire more each day. Each level of Celerity decreases the time you need to wait for a single action point by five minutes. When you reach Celerity(3), you are given double as many AP in the same time span as before you had Celerity at all.

Time for 1 AP

no Celerity: 30 minutes (100% AP)
Celerity(1): 25 minutes (120% AP)
Celerity(2): 20 minutes (150% AP)
Celerity(3): 15 minutes (200% AP)


Celerity(1): 4 000 coins
Celerity(2): 8 000 coins
Celerity(3): 17 500 coins


As wonderous as this power is, the quest is an utter pain in the rear end, and it adds to the expenses you need to make. You are told that the quest is that you need to run to pubs all across the city, where you drink blood. The word run is emphasized, and you are given 3 days for each pub. What does this mean?

Under no circumstances use the transit system (you can, however, use Scrolls of Teleportation, and I suggest you use them!). If you use it, your quest will fail, and large amount of coins will have been wasted, paticularily if you make this mistake for Celerity(3), the second most expensive power in the city.

When you reach a pub (careful, they may be blocked) you do not need to buy blood - this may seem obvious at first, but the quest text of Celerity used to include that you need to buy blood... and was false even then. You could have this quest at a hundreth of the price an unexperienced vampire would have to pay, by buying beer. Every drink in the dropdown list could and can be used for your quest. (Though, historically, Raven's code first only allowed the use of Blood and Bloodwine.) The Blood-requirement was probably removed due to people accidentally having bought another drink, rendering them too poor to buy the needed blood.

Amount of Pub checkpoints

Celerity(1): 3
Celerity(2): 6
Celerity(3): 12

I suggest to donate for Celerity(1). Even though Raven has added a script to stop the quest from occasionally being unfulfillable (a vampire without Celerity does not get enough AP in three days to cross the city!), it is still one of the hardest quests to complete.


Price: 4 000 + 3, 8 000 + 6 and 17500 + 12 coins: 29 521 coins.
more AP in less time

absolutely terrible quest, hands down
celerity(3) is insanely expensive
completely useless for people who rarely move their vampires
