Summary notes

  • Nick spends an average of 3 weeks at a time on each continent.
    • His longest layover so far has been 6 weeks, which has occurred twice, both in Tyria:
      • August 31 – October 11, 2009
      • August 23 – October 3, 2010
    • When distinguishing Prophecies areas from Eye of the North areas in Tyria, he very rarely visits EotN more than once per rotation.
      • He visited EotN twice during his stay in Tyria from 31 May – 14 June 2010.
  • He rarely stays in the same region for more than 1 week, although this has happened 7 times so far:
    • 17 and 24 May 2009 he was in Kaineng City.
    • 23 and 30 November 2009 he was in the Southern Shiverpeaks.
    • 18 and 25 January 2010 he was in Kryta.
    • 22 and 29 March 2010 he was in the Southern Shiverpeaks.
    • 5 and 12 July 2010 he was on Shing Jea Island.
    • 2 and 9 August 2010 he was in the Jade Sea.
    • 23 and 30 August 2010 he was in Kryta.
    • 6 and 13 September 2010 he was in the Northern Shiverpeaks.
  • The most common type of item he collects is trophies, constituting 83% of the items he has requested.
  • Excluding core items and rare materials, Nick almost always asks for an item that can be obtained in the same area, or in a neighboring outpost or dungeon. There have been 4 exceptions so far:
    • On 23 April 2009, Nick was in post-Searing Regent Valley but requested Red Iris Flowers, which are only found in Pre-Searing Ascalon, Ice Cliff Chasms and in Dalada Uplands.
    • On 4 May 2009, he was located in Bukdek Byway but requested Branches of Juni Berries, which can only be obtained in Marga Coast.
    • On 10 May 2010, he was in Issnur Isles but requested Drake Kabobs, which can only be obtained in Kamadan and Yohlon Haven (although the trophy required in exchange, Chunks of Drake Flesh, can be found in Issnur Isles).
    • On 17 May 2010, he was located in The Floodplain of Mahnkelon but requested Dwarven Ales, which can only be obtained from dwarven merchants in Tyria or from the dungeon chest in Fronis Irontoe's Lair.
    • On 27 September 2010, he was located in Skyward Reach but requested Shriveled Eyes, which are dropped by Storm Kin, but no Storm Kin inhabit that area.
  • On 2 occasions, there have been bugs related to Nick's location and/or dialogue.
    • On 10 August 2009, he appeared in Arbor Bay where he collected 3 Krait Skins. In this case, both his location and dialogue were incorrect; Anet pushed a new build to place him in his correct location, the Wilderness of Bahdza.
    • On 25 October 2010, he appeared in The Black Curtain where he collected 2 Shadowy Remnants. In this case, only his dialogue was missing, and a new build was released to correct this.
  • His dialogues clock in at an average of 521 characters.
    • His first dialogue, when he visited Regent Valley, is by far his longest, at 1292 characters.
    • In contrast, his shortest dialogue was a mere 250 characters when he visited Dry Top.
    • Nick refers to the player character as "friend" in 35 of his dialogues.

Because some items can be found in more than one campaign or have more than one primary type, the counts in the first two tables do not add up to the above number. The total of the counts in the third table, however, should always match.
