I'm just tagging along with small groups, building my skills and hoping to get lucky lol.

Plav and I can duo our way there... it's a pita but we've done it before if you can catch us both on at the same time.

I can almost make it into the second level solo but Khyrulek's adds along the wall usually overwhelm me right near the end. The rhino's I just body pull out of the room and obliterate. I am expecting my Necro/Druid build to get nerfed once the Druid class is implemented a bit more

I'm still poking away at this and have managed to find the combat skills for sword, unarmed, fire, bow, and psychology. I still can't get to the stinking shield in the starter cave to get that skill and I've been wandering all over looking for the druid altar and haven't made it to the necro on yet either. I also keep finding a bunch of gear that requires levels in lycanthropy. I guess I should look into that too.

You forgot pig, cow, and deer. I'm not sure how they work, but becoming a pig takes a potion, and I think cow and deer work the same way. No idea on werewolf, but I do know that it comes with some downsides you might want to consider.

Who gives psychology skill?

Also, I got the shield in the starter cave, but the guy didn't give me the shield skill... Not sure you can get it there. The shield is still good for blocking, however.

Spoiler:

Riger (the first npc you meet in the tutorial cave) will let you read his book on psychology if you do his "cheer up Riger" quest.

He does teach the shield skill, but you have to reach "friends" rep with him.

The first guy you meet in the starter cave will let you read the book next to him to get Psych AFTER you do his quest to give him a Pick Me Up Juice... need to ask him if there is anything you can do for him.

The Shield guy (Tyler Green iirc) DOES teach shield but you need to be at Friend favor level before he teaches it to you.
Which means doing his quests and giving him alot of green+ shields... easiest way is to do his two quests (can buy oranges on used tabs of merchants sometimes) and then buying all the magic shields you can find (pref blue or higher).

The druid shrine is in Sunvale (need to pay 200 gold at the northern serb dock to get there) and on that map it is in the Northeast corner... pretty mean place but the run is very doable. I did it right out of the starter cave.

If'n y'all want we can probably make a run of the necro shrine tomorrow, maybe even tonight (I get off pretty late though not sure anyone will be up). I have tomorrow off and if we can get enough peeps together I can probably get us there... just need peeps to burn the wall adds in Khyrulek's room once I take out the rhinos. I'll be on pretty much all day tomorrow and should be on around 10-11 pm pst tonight.

I can tank Khyrulek with the adds no problem. I have a lot more trouble with the fire spider on the second level. It might be okay with just him, but you pick up his adds and sometimes a snail and it's just too much.

Then the three of us should be able to make it no problem. Plavs AOE + direct target DPS, your tanking and my heals + direct target DPS should make it a bit of a cake walk.

Like I said I'll be on pretty much all day tomorrow, mostly on Brighid my Druid/Necro if not on her then I'll be on Einbjorn. I'll try to make sure I am in the -gwj channel for anyone interested in tryin a run at the altar. We can make it our first unofficial guild event! Lol. Necro's for all goodjerdom!

I'm Aetria in-game, I'll friend you guys up.

I'm Kehama in game. I just picked up the Druid skill last night and that, along with fire magic has been working okay for me. I still need to level both of them up a good bit but it seems fun. Now to just find more fire dust to research the second group of fire spells.

Finally found the portal to Eltibule. And, because I'm stubborn, I blew my stack of cash on raising my cred with the guy in the starter dungeon who teaches Shield. Now I have to go dungeoning again to get more money to buy him more fancy shields so he'll teach me lol.

You may be high enough level now, but apparently panthers in this world REALLY like oranges. After i picked up my Druid skill i farmed them for awhile leveling up skills and got the 5 oranges in 30-45 minutes.

Wait... Why oranges? Who likes those, again?

Lol this is how I got my oranges too... had a myself a trip over to Etilbule one day to get the Teleport skill off the fairy and killed a panther on the way.. it had an orange in it's maw.. was like "wtf panthy?" Killed a few more and got another one and about 15-20 panthers later had all my oranges for Mr. Green.

@Aetius Hella fun runs the other day. Plav and I have decided with one or 2 more peeps Borghild is the place to farm atm (That or try Kur's tower). I managed to get 14 levels of BC with the run on the PH rhinos in Serb Crypt and our time in Borghild. Jeebus BC is *^&$&[email protected] expensive. About 8 more levels and I can get a three command line golem, also The guy with the quests for Borghild I guess gives access to three command line golem with extra armor *drool* and since we did his quests all I need now is the levels!

I need to visit Kur's tower when i'm not gorging on CoD. Need the cold skill.

Hell yes, that was amazing. Stupid bug venom.

grats!

What is that glaring blue light thingie? Damn thing can blind me in-game from like a mile away.

Also, I'm still trying to find the Necro guy in the Crypt. Not sure where the portal to the second level is hiding. I can get to and from the Sewers, but that's the only portal I've found...

Druid skill Brambleskin.... when you absolutely NEED to blind everyone in a 10km radius.

Kill Khyrulek. When he dies a portal appears where he stood at first encounter leading to the second level.

50/50 Druid Necro now with 39 Battle Chemist support. Raven form is delicious... so is Iocaine powder.... I may be addicted to Death.

EDIT: So I combined my two loves...

Also Lomas from Kur Tower down... grats on Ice Magic Aetius!

WoooooooOOOooOoO! On the Launcher -

"August 31 Note

If all goes well there will be an update very late tonight (technically tomorrow). No new content, just basic guild features and tons of bug fixes."

Ahhhhh yessss

Nice.

BTW, the latest backer note said that they will close the game to all but Kickstarter backers for a few weeks starting in the middle of September. They will integrate Steam; everyone will have to access the alpha through Steam after that, and it will then appear on Early Access.

They said they have some ideas for people who are playing free right now and did not Kickstart, but they are not ready to discuss them.

I don't actually have it yet, Fire Magic 25 is a prerequisite. :\ That was a fun run, though, and got me access to Shield (via a nice useless high-level purple shield to hand over). I've also started Leatherworking, so if you have skins you don't want/need I'll be happy to take them off your hands.

I finally got Shield. Took like 3 levels of favor. I was reduced at the end to handing over armor repair kits for the last 2 points or so...

ha! nice!

Very nice! I have started a cat-man named Mixolyde. Looks like -gwj is empty. I will try to message the clan-mensch.

I'm on for a few more minutes, then look for me tomorrow morning. Argie is my main.

I keep missing everyone. Usually I'm on Rubeckia or Persimmon. Still mucking about in the two starter areas.
