I'm an idiot (in General)

Alright... *Sigh* I'm an idiot, Well, as many of you may already know, I never really think things through... aaaaand.... it's not goin too well for me right now.

So a few days ago, I decide, hmm, this is getting repetitive a little, time for a change, I hear Mikel's selling his char, so I jump in, I want to buy your char so I can forge! Yeah, that sounds like a perfect idea!! So I jump on the sale, which cost A LOT of money, haha, and now here I am, a few days later, hating forging, It's terrible, I hate it I hate it!!!

Now, I'm stuck with pretty much no money, a 1.3 mill MPR char, and no equiptment or a tattoo for that matter, and I want to fight again..

Please help me CB, how can I turn Mikels char into a not too high NW char, but still a pretty good fighter, I'm not looking for number 1, I just want a char to fight with to get me money and stuff, that's all.

Thanks to everyone in advance for helping me!

I vote for this: WMME. Wall in front, a MM mage and a CoC mage, then a PL/AS enchanter in back.

The Wall reduces damage, the PL guy absorbs it, while the MM guy hits in ranged and the CoC mage hits in melee. DM is good, AMF if you want to aim for mages.

Or, if you wanna go tank killer, the same thing but replace the MM guy with EC. *grins* he'll hit your wall for no damage, that'll get absorbed, then COC kicks in. You wouldn't have to put much HP on the CoC mage either.

Additionally, you could go:

1. Haste
2. GS
3. AS
4. UC

and dump big UC gears on the fourth minion, and small kats on the first 3.

The tanks would never hit the UC guy in back. If you wanted, you could put 1/10 AMF on each. If you did this, I'd invest in a base RoS you could grow on your AS while you make back your money.

Good luck!

sell it...cut your losses and move on.

Haha, Well, I payed around 10 mill for this....

I know, I know, stupid stupid, I'd sell it in a second for around that price.

Anymore ideas? Thanks OB

The first step to getting better is identifying your illness, so, you're an idiot.
The second step is finding the cure, if there is one. ;)

As for the character, I'd go with CoC on the minion with highest EXP, CoC/AS on the second highest EXP and Phantom/Dispel Magic/AS on the third, finally Phantom/Dispel Magic/AS on the last. Equip a RoS to boost your enchantments, or ToE to help with damage absorption. Probably experiment with a smaller char, to get the best strat, before re-training the char, losing EXP hurts.

Get a tattoo. Make that your priority. RoS or ToE as people are suggesting. Even if you just pick up a cheap Lesser for the time being until you can get hold of a bigger one.

But how are you stuck with 'pretty much no money' on the same day you advertise your loan service? Lol! ;)

The phrase "I told you so" keeps popping into my mind...

No offense to you forgers, but forging sucks.

And if you don't have enough money to properly equip that team then it's just time to cut your losses. If you can get even half of that money back then you should do it. Sell it to some forger. They're suckers for high MPR characters...

Start an NCB with the ~5 mil that you get. It's what all the cool cats are doing these days.

don't sell retrain of start fiddle just yet.

rent a decent melee weapon long term, that should be enough to
get you fighting for now. Also rent an RoE.

What part of forging did you hate the worst?

I think you might find someone out there who might want a top 5 mpr char, so don't nuke it prior to trying to resell

/me scratched Mem Dotson out of the customer list :(

Mem April 19 2006 4:50 PM EDT

How do you know that I didn't remove myself?

Glad to see you wise up, Lukey.

YNM April 19 2006 6:32 PM EDT

I want it!....600k just doesn't forge well anymore.

QBBarzooMonkey April 20 2006 10:54 AM EDT

Well, he got his 10 mil back. And has put me in complete agreement with Mem in the process :P
