Q:What exactly is the Tome of Knowledge?
A: The Tome of Knowledge is a feature of the game that tracks your achievments as you progress through the world of Warhammer Online. It tracks types of kills, RvR kills, opens new quests and gives rewards for finishing them, gives you titles based on certain achievements, etc. It literally is a book of your character's life.
Q:Will I have to do the Tome of Knowledge quests in order to advance?
A: Nope, one of the great things about the Tome of Knowledge quests is that they're totally optional. Don't feel like killing squigs and getting the title? No problem, don't do it. Aren't into exploring the land and finding out about the past? No problem, you can keep on doing what you're doing. Tome Quests won't impact your regular quest lines. However, if you don't do the Tome Quests, then you bypass getting the rewards from those quests.
