I played before all the updates. And since the updates the games old gear is mostly a waste of time.
I started a new warrior am now 11 I have the best armour plating you can buy .And apart from a few weapons I have the best you can get. Without killing dragons etc.
Before I got to lvl 5 I brought a flame sword got a flame two hand hammer and by lvl 8 had everything else .I had the house by lvl 9. Apples by lvl 7 just by running fast to chest and running to town back again over and over till I got them.
Sorry just bored with every update set at such a low lvl everyone who been playing for a while has the best gear. And I have 6 games on the go every one over 11. Give up on my 21 and 18 as they have to much money gear that I don't even pick up 90% of drops . Can't believe when it comes out that being able to make gear is going to be hard since I have everything . I mean buying a house only 25.000 when you have over 575.000 gold .
You shouldnt forget that you already played the game endlessly.
You already know the core, all tricks, how to do and where to get what you need. All updates so far were rather small ones wich came in pieces. Lets just wait for the last big 1.0 update, wich surely will bring an updated balancing, many new stuff and hopefully the mage..
