I will tell you as well as the others that I have not spent a lot of forum points in this game except to avoid death. I have cashed in some for gold but that was before he changed the gold payout. Since he changed that I have not bought any gold. I am getting enough of that out on the plains.
I can tell you my secret to not dying as much. Just read it and you will be a winner. Every time I visit a place I don't only pick up what I wanted but I talk to the shop owner and stuff like that. When you do that they give you some hidden secrets!
Hunter that's exactly what I do but I haven't died yet from it probably because I did not go in the first time with a competitive ideal. Come to think of it I took awhile before joining in ROK II after ROK I.
Wizard, that is exactly how one should take up the game. I read some of the responses about ROK II and I can see people still do not get it. They become too obsessed with being the "Winner" that they do not realize it is a story they create.
Yes you can find a lot of information out reading and talking to people. From there it is a game wholy upon yourself and all that you do is reflected upon your character. Will I be ruler of kings? Maybe if I am great for me if not still woot great for me. This is a game that you are the winner no matter what and I am enjoying it a lot.
Yes it is nice to be ahead in experience but you have to keep up with it a lot to stay there and sometimes one just does not have all that time. There will always be someone wanting to be ahead and that is great. I will always be close to give them those ahead something to look over their shoulders at *smile*.
