There is a Skills button on the menu tab (you pull it out from the right side, with the little arrow. It's right by the Bag button.)

If I had the time to play MMOs on my PC I'd still be playing WoW, which I was hopelessly addicted to during Vanilla and BC. This game is awesome because it's similar but I can play at work.

The PvP isn't fleshed out yet. Just farm 5 mans until you're ready for Heroic dungeons. I finally beat a couple today and it's a nice 10 man challenge.

If you're not getting the purps you want to drop, check the Reputation tab. A lot of them are available though grinding.

There's tons to do.

I've just been leaving my toon on overnight grinding rep. It takes a while to cap out but it's a much easier way to get good gear instead of trying to herd 40 nerds through an incredibly easy dungeon.

the pc version is low-resource enough that i can let it run in the background while my elf lady runs around and collects bear asses. my laptop has intel graphics, too. not a solution for playing at work but it "works" for me puns wow

Make sure you do the 30 guild quests each week (I think it resets on Sundays?), that's the main thing.

A few words on item quality - there's been a lot of confusion in guild chat because this is the first MMO for a lot of people.

Weapons and armor come in 3 basic flavors: Green, Blue, and Purple. Green is the lowest quality and Purple is the highest. This is the standard MMO color scheme. There is a higher quality - Legendary - which I am not going to discuss because the rules are different and most of us aren't going to get some anyway.

So, better color equals better weapon or armor, right? Not so fast. You have to look at the required level and the item grade. A Purple level 10 helmet isn't going to be nearly as good as a Green level 30 helmet. CoL breaks down item quality further with a letter grade for each item; C is the worst, then B, then A, then S. I believe there is an SS level as well, but again we're only talking about the basics. Insert your own Third Reich joke here. When you grab a piece of gear from a raid, look at the required level and the grade as well as the color. The color of the item, the bonuses, the grade, and the level are all summarized as the item's Assess score. The gear level tends to break down in groupings of 10 - when you hit level 30 you'll gain access to much better gear that will start to feel stale in the high 30s. By 39 you'll be desperate for some hot new gear, and as soon as you hit 40 you'll unlock a new tier and you'll start finding Blues that are as good or better than your fancy level 30-33 Purples. I've gotten a Ranger and Mystic to 40 and both times I was desperate for a better weapon as I closed in on 40. Your weapon is the hardest piece of gear to upgrade.

How you get better geasr easily and quickly? 5 man raids will drop a lot of items, but most of them will be mediocre and unhelpful unless your level just hit a multiple of 10. There are 2 ways to get better quickly.

The first way is through Reputation gear. From the Adventure menu at the top, go to the Reputation Tasks menu. You should be doing your Reputation task for each faction every day, if they offer one. They're all 10 minutes at most. For each faction you've started, if you select the green magnifying glass you'll see the gear you're eligible to buy if your Reputation is high enough. You can directly buy the level 45 Purples that will carry you into Heroic and large party Raids. Keep working on your Reputations, and you'll be able to get exactly the pieces you want.

The second way isn't explained at all, but is by far the cheapest and fastest method. It's by using Regalian Stones to reroll your Raid drops. You get the Stones regularly from your daily login reward chests, online giftpacks, and other places.For 1 or 2 Stones plus a measly 1000 Silver, you can reroll any Purple into a brand-new item! So as you're raiding, hold on to the Purple gear that drops and has a good letter grade, say A or better. Many of the items you find will have bad stats or bonuses that don't apply to your character. But for basically nothing, you can turn trash into treasure. It's how I get most of my gear. Just this morning I found a Purple Soulbreaker Longbow that was Grade A but had horrible bonuses and an overall Assess of 480. A couple rerolls later and it had an Assess of 781 with a ton of Damage, HP, and Crit bonuses.

Does anyone know what the Five Sacred Relics stuff is? I managed to get a The Dragon's Breath and had seen some other sacred relics but wanted to know if I need all 5 of them to do anything with it or if I could just use the one and get some new gear (based on my understanding of the item description).

Well, there's 5 of them. And they're insanely expensive in the shop. And you need all 5 to do something with them that is unexplained and leads to some nebulous reward. So unless you can find something on the Subreddit or the official forum to justify keeping it I'd cash in that lotto ticket, you lucky dog.

Yes, you can just go to a spot and turn on auto-combat and leave it. However there's a cap on the reputation you can get from killing monsters of 3k per day. It does roll over (up to a point) if you don't use it all.

In my experience it only takes an hour or so to hit the rep grind cap (and it's one cap across all reps), so leaving it fighting all night might be overkill.

I tried this once and ended up dead. There are some world bosses wandering around who you'll auto attack, and probably get one hit. However I probably just picked a bad spot.

The only one that seems dangerous so far is the Titan spot for Thundercall Academy. I've been grinding Cudina rep and both their spots seem safe as houses (and packed with people).

Yeah the Titan spot wrecked me when I tried it.

I stopped Rep grinding pretty quickly though since you can get the pieces (or better gear) from Raids if you're willing to wait it out.

Eh, it takes zero effort to leave it on in the background and it helps smooth out the gear curve. Plus you can get earrings/accessories pretty early on which you can't get anywhere else as far as I can see.

If you click on the Adventure button in the top right, then select the Reputation Tasks tab on the bottom, you can pick a faction and it will show you a map with clickable icons (for most of them) that will take you directly to the area for killing mobs and grinding rep. Some may only be able to be advanced through the daily quests, which are also clickable to make it very easy to knock them out each day.

Pretty balanced. Shootymans are the least important class because the other 2 classes can tank or heal, but play however you like. Personally, I started with Shooty because I assumed it would be the easiest way to solo level, but in reality it's very easy with all classes. You'll get into Raids much faster if you heal or tank, though.

I heard that they're already beta testing Paladin as the next class. Just like WoW, it'll be able to tank or heal.
