Ahh, thanks for the clarification guys. I'll go ahead and train Parry this evening.
The real fun begins when you start second guessing your Talent Point selections.
You can wipe them, but it costs Gold!!!
I've never even laid eyes on a gold piece, much less held one. The most I've ever had is 14 Silver.
That's normal. Once you get higher up, you'll start finding good loot from monsters that you can't use and you sell it. It starts to accumulate and you'll find that you have gold in your wallet! Sadly, higher level skills cost lots and you'll be poor again.
On a side note, I train Parry too, as any chance for me not to get hit is a good one.
Ah, good to know. Then I can buy the Almost Heroes Tabbard! Once I hit level 10 and get a pet, am I safe to leave the first island? I hear everything picks up even more once you leave it.
You'll have plenty of gold. I'm level 29 now and I have around 5-6 gold handy. I buy stuff at auction and buy skills and it goes down, but you'll start raking in the dough. Higher level monsters drop silver, etc. Hell I sold a sword that I looted for 90 silver at auction. Making money is fun!
Not sure what race you are, but I know for the ones that I've played, once you leave the starting area, things do pick up. You'll get quests that require you to go to another area of the world and then you'll get a whole bunch of quests from there. It's a really neat process. Soon, you'll have so many quests from so many different areas, you won't know what to do!
Last night was the first time that my log was full and I had to abandon a quest that I just couldn't do at the time.
Any way, it's just fun, fun, fun ahead for you!!!
