Impossible to grow? (in General)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- December 11 2006 4:28 PM EST

I made a new character just to try and idea, see how it works out, when I find it impossible to grow.

You are awarded $1 and your Minions receive 0 exp each.

I get this every fight for him, I refreshed the fight list and still...

Are new users only supposed to play one guy?

PR to MPR ratio affects fight rewards.

to be more precise the higher your PR is compared to your opponents MPR the lower the rewards are

I get it, rapiers = no go :)

Basically, to begin with your armour should be worth very little.
Your weapon should be close to base so it fits in your weapon allowance (which as a beginner is small).
If your rapier is x8 +12 NW $20000, it's going to hurt you until
you get bigger.

Actually, the PR impact is skewed based on how big you actually are. If you put an Adam +50 on a new char, it might add 2 or 3 PR. If you put it on a top char, it might add 20 or 30 thousand PR.

Though weapon NW allowance is the main cause of small characters getting no rewards, use a base weapon until you get to 500 mpr then switch to something a bit bigger.

Keep switching until you can use the heavy weapons again :)

I was using a +2 +2 rapier I think :s

Your weapon allowance is how much net worth you can have in a weapon. I made the assumption based on some statistics picked up in chat, and by experimenting with my own characters, that your weapon allowance = a little less than 1.6 times your total spent XP...

That x2 +2 already had a few thousand points of NW on it, as opposed to a base one...
