BEFORE logging into game please be sure that you have the most current spell_US file downloaded and placed into the correct directory.
<-- Step One -->
Once you log into game there are a few items you will need before venturing out to get your experience and EPICX loots.
From the vendor I would suggest purchasing the following :
Any additional items will be nice add-ons but are not 100% required,
<-- Step Two -->
Once you have completed your purchases make your way to Confucius. He will offer you a chance to improve your SKILLS or learn some SPELLS.
<-- Step Three -->
Before leaving the nexus be sure to visit Mel Gibson as he will offer you your first task (1.0) which is completed in Crushbone. I would STRONGLY suggest new players pick this quest up.
<-- Step Four -->
Once you have done that feel free to make your way to Stephen Strange (teleporter), he has a suggestion of zones you may choose from, all zones offer the same loot tables for their level so it is completely up to you which zone you choose to tackle. You may also pick from a multitude of zones NOT on the recommended list. Just say the first letter to Stephen Strange and he will give you options.
Keep in mind we are small community so if you have questions feel free to ask in OOC, if you ever require assistance it never hurts to ask most individuals will assist you if they have the time to do so.
Dwight Schrute (**AA Vendor**)
Dwight will offer up some nifty items as you start to gain excess AA Abilities, Keep in mind these should only be purchased out of necessity until you have maxxed out your AA rings (more on that to follow), Below is a list of SOME of the items purchasable from Dwight :
I would recommend a hotkey that will track your 5 minute timer so you can make the most use of this item. Below is a look at my hotkey using MQ2:
This hotkey will auto click bear from inventory and start a 5 minute timer on that hotkey. This is a macro for MQ2. For an example of how to do this using EQ's built-in macro system, see /useitem
Mercenaries are obtainable in Plane of Knowledge *** Pictures required**
You will need to pick up the Journeyman Rnk II Healer merc (tank mercs are somewhat buggy currently). You will be charged 18 Plat per 3 minutes of use as long as merc is up so make sure you are looting! :)
