Now that I'm back up to 13, I have YET to figure out why anyone would whore out CON first. Yeah, you'll have ****loads of hp and stamina, but wtf good will you be in a fight? You won't be able to hit anything reasonably hard, and there's no armor before 20 that I've seen that really cuts down on damage taken.

Then on the main aisle, you'd be the slow guy lumbering around with 2k HP that everyone enjoys looting :]

Moral of the story: Whore CON once you can actually hit or nuke something. I started at 12, base dex is now 115 and my bow is in the 70s.

Daemon: Agnostick had a healer last night but he got killed when we made the mistake of letting a non-TW centaur in our group, who proceeded to train in 2 grobold archers, grob axefighters, grob assassins, the High Priest and the King. I've noticed that most of the non TW people I've grouped with have been complete idiots.

how you're able to hit from levels 1-20 doesn't mean dick.

max con early, int too if you're able.

I started my first mino going 100% con.. I figure it's a newbie island, I can level with friends, and start raising my weapon stats before I get out into the PK world.

It worked okay until about level 12, I was hitting for total crap (11-20).. I had 300+hp, but I still got killed since I couldn't hit or kill anything. I could kill a bandit or two solo and then have to rest.. but if I got double teamed I had to run

My current guy is an aelf fighter, I raised con to 60, and am going to start focusing on str/dex (sword). I think it will work out better this way..

--
any beta people here? I keep trying to find information on berserkers, but everything I find is conflicting. that site someone posted didn't list barbarian's as being able to use berserker discipline (it said warrior, maybe it mean't fighter?) .. and another site listed berserkers as possibly being removed from the game. none of them will tell me what it is a berserker can do :p

Well I got my video problem fixed. It was the latest det drivers that were ****ing everything up.

I got to level 7, almost 8 in about 3 or 4 hours. I was leveling pretty fast but late last night I ended up in a group that couldn't pull for **** and we had no healer cause he kept getting disconnected.

The game is fun and time flies if you don't pay attention.

I'm well on my way to gimping my character I think though. I'm looking to be a Thief and so far I've pretty much dumped all my points into DEX. Following by INT and CON sparatically. I havn't really 'trained' yet. I started off with over 40% dagger skill since I chose Eirikie(sp?) which gives +10% dagger naturally plus I got the 2 +5 %dagger runes. I then leveled it another 10% and havn't trained anything since.

In the late game, if all goes well with this character, I have to say one of my tuffest choices is going to be how many points to put into backstap/dagger vs sneak/peak/steal. Cause well.. I really want to be able to steal their jacket and kill them .. in various orders

Int helps with like...everything.

Max your int as a thief and youl'l get more training points I think

you don't get more training points.. but it gives you extra points in all your skills every so many INT points.. I've read 4, 6, 10, and someone posted a formula.. so I don't know how it exactly works

also increases your attack rating, which helps you hit more....

edit: need to clarify
example: every (4/6/10/?) int points, all your skills will raise by 1

so for mages this can get tricky... if you plan on getting a GODLY int rune (+40 int), you don't want to max any of your skills

I hit 20 last night, not bad for my second day of really leveling i guess. And I read that the formula for the focus' skills is your int +60... but i dunno if that's right

Some info:

If you are a Caster Int determines your damage.

Int adds not only to your skill it adds to your max skill.

Dex determines your damage if you are a rogue.

Str determines your damage if you are a figther.

Int determines your damage if you are a mage.

The higher your Dex the more often you will do your max damage.
for example 90 Dex: 10, 8, 10, 9, 9 20 Dex 3, 8, 2, 10, 2.

Your to-hit is determined mainly by your skill. Including mages, Your skill level with spells will also determine how often that spell hits.

Int lowers the cost of training. you will notice skills tend to spike at a much slower rate.

Con gets you HP and Stam. Stamina is the lifeblood of PVP. No stam you die!

Stamina is also the fighting classes Mana. No stam no special attacks.

My suggestion. Find your main damage stat and max it. Then you will have a secondary stat that controls your mana/stam max that as well. if Con is not your secondary stat I suggest in early levels split between Con and your other stat.

In the first ten levels, if INT is not your main stat get it up to at least 50. This will help later on during training. Then get your main stat and CON up. Between 10 and 20, focus on our main two stats and reserve two levels for CON. Then it is really up to you how you want to progress, you can then try and max main stat or split between main and secondary(Spi for casting professions, Con for melee professions).

If you are a pure mage DEX is useless to you!
