    Okay. "I can't really afford to" is understandable and definitely sounds better than "I won't as a rule" which suggests you could if you were so inclined.

    Yeah, I commonly fail to include half of what I'm thinking. The "I won't as a rule" should be, "I don't as a rule because in the grand game of budgeting and not being able to afford certain things, F2P games will always get the short shrift unless and until I am making enough that they don't".

    Which also means once I get my rig back it's back to the grindstone so I can maybe make some of that sweet, sweet money. :wink:

    Surely with all those high-levels you've told me about, you have enough in-game gold to just buy a slot from someone through the trade broker?

    If not, let me know. I might have something...

    I'm not sure how much Corrigan has, but the last time I checked they were 8-10k gold to just outright buy off the AH. And I know that as a mainly solo player, my Sorcerer has all of, like, 400 gold? Not sure if that's normal, I have been screwing around with crafting this whole time . . .

    I've got about 600-700g in the bank, The cheapest slots are 9800 gold buy out, or about 8000 for offer.

    How are you so broke? I mean, my highest level character is 30 or 31 and she's carting around 12,000 gold. At one point I had 40 or 50k in the bank (before I blew a huge chunk costuming my lancer).

    Anyway, yeah, I'll see what I can do when I get home. Or maybe Radiation has something.

    As for me and broke, I've probably spent about 500g on crafting all tolled, so at one point I had about 1k, but that's my max.

    I need a lot of potions and such though. Soloing as a sorcerer is not cheap. :wink:

    Seriously? Craaaap I was so looking forward to solo dungeons. I remember hearing about it back when that feature was added and thinking, 'holy shit that is such an awesome thing!'. Of course it didn't bring me back to the game at the time, but it's been one of the features I've kept in mind that made me want to return at some point.

    Now I'm sad.

  • Pixelated PixiePixelated Pixie They/Them Registered User regular
    Yeah, I was crushed when I went through the solo BOL the first time and realized how it worked.

    So I took my revenge on it and solo'd the group BOL instead. <3 Lancers.

    In that same vein, while monsters more than 5-6 levels higher than me can kick my ass like no tomorrow, pretty much everything else dies in a literal fire, and if our teams feel the good old fashioned need for "Moar Firepower", I have no qualms about loading up "Jubbles McLights-Shit-On-Fire" (otherwise known as Luinaur the Sorcerer High-Elf) to assist in the draggy bits of the game.

    The more I think on it, though, the more interested I am becoming in playing an Archer rather than a Sorcerer for this new run. If I had three slots I'd have both an Archer and An Amani Sorcerer because the picture in my head of a dragon-person-chick that throws fireballs entertains me, but seeing as how I already have a Sorcerer, I'm more and more interested in trying something new . . .

    Whaaaaaaaa? So what's the point of them? I can farm wimpy enemies outside of dungeons just fine... hell, I can farm bosses outside of dungeons just fine. :(

    So they can say they have solo dungeons, I guess.

    I guess it's useful if you're totally new to a dungeon - you can do a safe dry run and at least get a sense of the layout and stuff. But you won't see the same monsters you'll see in the group version (or at least, not in the same numbers) so it's sort of deceiving.

    I may or may not have spent entirely too much time recreating Windranger in the character creator. This is a dangerous path to go down.

    I am a bit disappointed in the customization options for what I was expecting to be a waifu simulator, but I think I got it pretty close anyway (and clearly wasn't the only one trying, as most sensible permutations of her name were already reserved).

    Guild has been made, hit me up on steam for invites. This can be used for alts as well.

    Um, essentially we are getting a bunch of people to do one night a week group run through quests starting at level 1. I'm sure people will fall off, but it should be fun for a bit.

    Wait. I thought we talked about this. We weren't going to jump the gun on that, yknow? Let everyone have a say in the guild name and stuff? And who is guild leader? I mean, I'm no expert on Tera guilds but it seems like there are things that should be bashed out - there must be a guild bank, guild ranks, things like that?

    Guild bank is paid for. First tab is for entry gear, second tab is for random greens I had in my bank that may help people.
    Avoid crafting, its a gold sink.
    Establishing ranks soon. Reading up on alliance benefits shortly and will pay for that.
    And the name Pinkdra was pretty well received :P

    I can toss over leader if you want, but I figure you have enough on your plate and we I just want to kick people mwahahahahahahahahahhaa.

    Yeah, I wasn't too sure what was up with alliances, which is why I'm reading up on shit. I was under impression they may give buffs which may help with questing.

    But sure, we can disband and reform a guild. I have all of 2 people currently in guild, myself being one. Was trying to get some of this sorted so we aren't standing around trying to do it on Tuesday when people actually want to play.

    Tuesday is 6 days away. And is there any compelling reason the guild even needs to exist on day 1 anyway? :)

    Unrelated, since it came up. Here's a quick tip for folks who might not know how to do this.

    To get the Steam overlay to work with TERA
    1. Find your Tera directory
    2. Make a copy of TERA-Launcher.exe
    3. Name the copy TERA.exe
    4. Point your Steam shortcut to TERA.exe instead of TERA-Launcher.exe
    5. Profit!

    Any time En Masse patches the launcher itself (not the game) you will have to undo this, patch the launcher, and redo it. But that's a rare thing - it's been a long time since I've had to do it.

    Does 'Tera Launcher' show up in the list when you click 'add a non-steam game'? If it does, you aught to be able to check it and add it from there and it'll work fine, no need for copying/manually pointing shenanigans.

    Yes. But when I added it, the steam overlay never worked.

    Now in fairness, the last time I tried was well over a year ago. Maybe something changed since then to make it work. I've been doing the above shenanigans habitually since.

    Edit: yep. Just tested. Now it works fine. Disregard all of the above I guess. I am not crazy though - this used to not work. :razz:

    Alliances don't kick in until level 60, so no, no helping there. Also, while a guild will eventually help, (and while I personally support PINKDRA as a guild name) it's not required, I think, for our first time runthroughs.
