    Yup. We like our fantasy to have a basis in reality. Dissonance with reality's calendar is bogus.

    Looking at your character certainly brings back memories. :D I have a DK friend who started on the same day I did, but chose to power level to 45; so at that level, he was wearing the same type of gear as you are now and having the same issue of low damage.

    With regards to choosing whether to power level or to stick around at one level, it's really up to you. My friend chose to power level, I chose to stay at my level. We've both gotten strong in our own ways and still farm together.

    Since we are on the same server, you can always whisper me (ign: Lingeringsnow) and see if I have time to party up. I usually get a few hours in the evening to play. Yes, I am level 30 still. But I'm quite comfortable anywhere in the normal world that isn't level-locked. I wouldn't recommend PWs, however.

    About Karabossa, if you have difficulty with that, you can ask for help, keeping in mind I'll be bringing me + a friend, so save room for 2. (Also, full party size is not advised. Last time we tried that I was bored from how long it was taking. :p) I am less sure about the full moon event, but since that one's coming up soon, better get farming on that ess if you plan to participate!

    @_Baragain_ Happy To meet a fellow astronomy buff, many a nights of mine are spent on deserted spots getting insect bites while staring through the scope for a perfect view.

    That aside, I agree. From what I saw Bigpoint tries to maintain the lunar calendar dates. keyword being tries.

    Though one thing baffles me. I have option to buy either "7 inventory spaces" or "5 Kobold's Spots"
    Please tell me these two are same thing and not some wordplay to confuse us.

    @silverseas I have saved up about 6.5K Silver essence and 2 scrolls, 9.9k Combat Essence and like 16 trips worth of frags.
    And yes, I would like to take you up on your offer of New Moon. Also if u want, Full Moon.
    That aside I decided to level till 39, then farm and craft legendaries and uniques.

    @TheInfamous Yes, I think I would level till 39 Then farm and craft legendaries and uniques then glyph them up. Why 39? becuase Misty Ridge opens at 39, so I can farm lvl40s there.

    A bit of update.
    I got a lvl37 EO amulet sitting on my Inv for sometime, When I opened it, I was pleasantly surprised, It had 4 Open gem slots.

    Also Do you guys know know where to farm for COTs? I mean Crypt, Catacombs, Wildherz and Loxley are known but apart from that.
    IMO COK and Cata are nothing as good as hyped, gives 20COT a run max, only good thing is that you have 25% chance at unique.

    Wildherz gives 40COT+1-2 EO gear+2Gems, all guaranteed drops.

    Loxley is unpredictable it gives anything between 7-29COT+1gem(rare)+1Unique(10% chance)+15-20 anders(guaranteed)

    You know what Dr.Seuss said?

    Haha sorry for the inaccuracy Baragain. I am by no means familiar with astronomy, aside from the rather vague facts mentioned in the new Cosmos... TV show. :p

    Silverseas, I was pretty sure you were on Agathon for a bit.. what made you change server? *Just curious*

    Durrendal, that sounds like a solid plan. As for CoTs... I get pretty good drops in PW like Cata/Crypt and Map1 and 2.

    Since Baragain brought up the gem stuff..
    Find some gray(no enchantment) items that have 4 slots; you can add another slot for a cheap price. They will be your gem holders for when your equipped gear are full, and you won't have to waste inventory slots to keep the gems.

    Hmm, ok. I'm usually online some time after 7pm MST, sometimes a bit earlier, but no guarantees on that. (Work keeps me busy.) I'm usually a bit scarce Thursdays and Friday evenings though, so gotta be speedy if you want to get ahold of me on those days. xD

    I... was? :p

    I've always been on Tegan. I do have a character on Agathon that I played for a grand total of... well, a few minutes before the lag got too horrible to bear, but that was months ago. I'm not sure I even made it out of the tutorial. xD

    Hmm, I don't know.. must have confused you for someone else, then. Sorry xD

    Durrendal, Inventory spaces are the slots in your inventory, while Kobold spots are the slots in 'Bank' as we call it. That's the only difference. Inventory slots are better because you have access to items stored wherever you are, whenever. Store the items that you don't use or plan to use any time soon in your bank.

    @TheInfamous - No worries. xD I don't post on the forums all that often except when a topic catches my attention, so it's not like I advertise which server I'm on a lot...

    @Durrendal - Yes, that should work. :)

    Just adding to the great advice... you're only a month old.... strong players (non-cash) have been farming for months, even years.

    My advice is to farm in a no-xp map - for anders, cots, gems, items to melt - for as long as you can stand it. Zen farming I call it, just chill out and kill stuff and collect melts/glyphs and upgrade what you have (and when you eventually melt that item you get the glyphs back).

    Yeah I do that, but somehow it seems that sometimes COT droprates fluctuate a LOT.


    Just wondering, After I posted the COT droprates last night in this thread, Loxley suddenly started giving me no COTs at all in most runs. it possible that the geared the droprates down after the post?
    I mean droprates are no new news but still...


    Dear Moderator, I know you are watching this.
    Do i absolutely have to put everything in one reply?
    I do not wish to put everything in one reply, rather reply separately to every post.

    Having no carefully controlled experiments or data to show, I'll just tell you anecdotally that having a really small inventory means it'll seem like drop rates fluctuate a lot. When I got more bag space (and thus made my farming runs longer), there were still fluctuations from run to run, but less so.

    You need to experiment to find which maps like your toon the most. I have found cata/crypt, slifmoor,temple to be the best for mine.

    But I'm also talking about long term benefits. My lvl27 mage has been farming, hard, for 1 yr. ;)

    Got a tegan's suit of armour today. Didn't ID it yet.

    This is mu current amour

    and this is what wiki says about Tegan's stats

    So, my question is it worth ID'ing for 1008 COTs?

    and thanks to Silverses for making the actual drop for me, :)

    No, I am not talking about item drops, but COT drops, and btw isn't it ust more profitable to but bank space rather than inventory?

    Any maps that give more frags? During Last Sargon the wildherz forest was raining frags for me but its not a "worthy" hunting ground anymore so, any where else?

    Dear Mod, how to merge threads after I post seperately by mistake?

    Tegan's Suit is one of the better low level DK uniques, the only one that I'd even consider IDing. But it all depends on what you need, if that armor increase helps out and it's worth the CoTs, then sure, ID it. :)
