Interesting game, just started playing yesterday. I'm more blundering through AP at this time then having a set goal for the character. To ask a dumb question, is the only way (at least at the low lvl 3 i'm currently at) to get a level up to work your job?

Your level is based purely on your stats, there's no xp. So anything that gives you stats helps you level. This includes jobs, but also skills. When you use charms in combat you get points in that skill, and when you get to 100 points, you get stats. Later on, you can get stats from special food and potions too.

If I've gone Con/Int as my main stats, and left Dex and Pow alone until now which one is better to raise a bit?

Dex would give me lightning and spears, to go with Maces and Holy. Seems a Spear/Holy deck would do quite well, with lots of cumulative defences and penetrating attacks?

Go check out what class you want to be in the long term. You get to pick 2 stats as your primary, and while you can pick a 3rd stat to boost a bit to diversify your charm choices, you won't be able to use the latest, and bestest charms for you 2 chosen stats. I think being a bit diverse is better for solo play. There's lots of group stuff though, apparently.

WTB Maintankadin guild lol. Mexs should make it.

With a Con/Int setup, then you'll be doing most of your damage with maces. You can either focus heavily on melee by boosting Dex, which gives you access to spears, or you can gain access to more powerful magic damage by boosting power, for Earth charms. Both have their merits. I keep Dex equal with Int, and Pow very low, but you can just as easily keep Pow and Dex quite equal. There's no "best" answer in most cases like this. If you go one way, you'll be rock, if you go the other, you'll be scissors, but in the end no matter what kind of deck you run, there will always be a hard counter. The thing to make sure of is that you're capable of running at least 1-2 high quality decks, which is why you need a Primary and Secondary stat. After that, it matters much less.

Interesting. I think I wanna go Scout -> Rogue -> Assassin, but I'm not sure. I like the idea of Twinblades and Lightning, with maybe a little Frost if I'm feeling frisky.

Due to an untimely level-up (thanks to Mentoring), I missed the easy opportunity to farm Heroism in IBT. What's the next available target?

Thunderock Canyon, Rooftop Rush, and Abandoned Manor are the next dungeons to become available, as well as the first raid -- Rogue Colossus.

Thunderock is doable at 10 if you've got a good range of charms from IBT. The last fight may give you some trouble though, a lot depends on what your primary / secondary stats are. Feel free to leave it until you're 12+ if you feel you need to, but make sure you do it. Like lightning reflexes, quick blades will last you until level 30+ at least, so try to get 5. The round keystone may also look like vendor trash, but I wouldn't be too hasty to throw it away, you never know what it might help you uncover ;)

Rooftop Rush is also pretty good for heroism, you can clear it at 11 if you've got the right deck setup, and really it's only the last fight that should give you any trouble.

Abandoned Manor I'd recommend doing as soon as you get enough focus to beat your way through the first two fights (guiding X charms from Concentrated Assault are really useful here). The final two fights can generally be beaten by stacking your best offensive charms and going for a quick burn. AM also drops Bloodred Gems, and Essence of Change -- which are used for the next tier of focus charms, which are again very, very useful. Check The Perfect Aim to figure out which ones you're likely to use (for instance, I got maces, spears, and thunder), because they'll generally be very useful up until your mid-20s, especially if you're doing group PvP. I ended up running AM over 20 times for all the mats I needed, so if you think you'll need a lot, start early! Bloodred Gems often sell for 8-10k when they appear on the auction house.

Rogue Colossus is the first raid. It's a 2-person fight, against a single mob with a lot of health, who hits hard but slow. The tutorial screen will give you all the info you need, but basically you can either join a public party, which puts you into a pool of players. Every hour or so, this pool is split into groups (it apparently tries to match you with similar deck types, but it's not very reliable) of 2 which attempt to beat up the Rogue Colossus. Just like WoW, you can get fantastic pub runs (I once got a level 35 guy who 2-shot it), or terrible ones (I also once got a level 12 guy who was still using his 13 card newbie deck :\). The other option is to make a private group with a PW. Once there are a few people at the right level (12-13 could do it if both people have good decks), I'd recommend posting here with the private party's PW and the type of deck you're running, to try and co-ordinate some good runs.

I just beat Argali in a duel, but passionario stacks too much defense, so I'm gonna try to tackle him again with some Pen charms (if he doesn't move out of Eversweep first :P )

Do you remember the battle details? I've got a full turtling deck that's chock full of armor and wards, I'm just not sure if I set up the default deck settings right. Still, since it's half armor, half ward, I suppose it loses to a balanced deck.

CUUURRRSEEEE YOUUUU!

I was looking at my event feed for you, but apparently I cleared it earlier >_<

So I've been reading this thread for a while and decided to browse the wiki a bit. I finally decided to try playing and set my goal on Slayer. Lightning and Twinblades just appealed to me. I figured out that AP is 20 every two hours, jobs/travel are every 24 hours, and I found out that dungeons are every 12 hours and pet events are every 5? hours. Is there anything else like this or are these the only things that are limited in this way? Also is there an application or anything that can alert me when these things reset?

Pet feeding resets every 2 hours, and I believe that pet races are every 6. From what I understand, the game's servers are run out of France, and reset at 8am and 8pm Paris local time, which means that they may vary slightly throughout the year, depending on which hemisphere you're in, daylight savings, etc.

I'm not sure about apps, but I do use two greasemonkey scripts which are both invaluable to me. AllInOne allows you to do a whole range of really cool stuff, like multiple gathering / arena fights, attacking players from the inspect page, saving extra gear templates (you can still only rotate between the four, but you can save different sets to use for those four), and lots of other stuff too. Estiah Available Skills is fantastic for a bar-filler such as myself. When you activate it, it saves your data and takes you to a webpage which shows you which skills are available, how to get them, and what benefits they'll grant. It's a really great way to tell at-a-glance which skills you need to be working on.

Thanks I'll take a look into those. One other question, I decided on Slayer but does it matter how I get there so long as I have the necessary stats and skills? In other words is there a difference between Scout>Shaman>Slayer and Novice>Sage>Slayer?

The difference is largely in the experience you have during 20-40. Scout -> Shaman tends to give a good selection of EA and DoT charms, while Novice -> Sage will give you ward projection (deals damage based on your current ward) and buff / debuff charms (weaken your opponent's magic, strengthen yours). Scout -> Shaman "fits" with the traditional Slayer playstyle better, and the Scout EA charms have really good longevity. On the other hand, sage mana bane charms can shut down enemy casters hard, but lack the power to really last past 45.

Really, it comes down to which playstyle you think you'll enjoy most 20->40.
