Vindy gives out free +12 lv 100 equipment.
Don't enhance/enchant anything until you hit lv100.
At this moment a player should have enough materials to at least enhance one piece of equipment (I would choose the weapon) to +13 easily.
Last time I started a level 1 char was when Delia release, and Vindi was different then.
I like the changes in the Perilous Ruins and S2 map.
Also more cutscenes are always welcome.
Too bad they never fixed the terrible Keaghan voice acting.
I don't understand the real reason DevCat nerfed S1&S2 boss (a lot!).
Since I could solo all maps in S1&S2 without help, I have no complains.
My Miri combat pattern is tedious, just FlameBreath all time.
Boss fight is like: Get SP (Maybe with Dark Knight) --> DragonKnight --> (Summon Dragon -->) FlameBreath combo /(HP potions)--> Win
Leveling up in Rocheste is still painful because low exp gained.
Once entering S2 Twilight Desert area, leveling up is much easier with high exp.
Cheap level 80 and level 90 equipment are available on market place.
With 2x exp event + 150% exp boost item + VIP, I can get 9.3mil exp in a single Misty Summit/Annwyn raids.
Even without these boost, I was planing to level up to lvl95 with S2 raids anyway.
I wasn't so lucky to find someone to carry me in Abyssal Arena, otherwise that's probably 70mil exp in one run over this weekend with my boost.
The game is designed for everyone being able to reach max level in S2 so they can get equipped for S3.
DevCat makes the game more friendly to beginners, so I hope seeing more people playing.
