Hi everyone, I'm new around here.

I've been reading up on strategies and decided to follow the beginner strategy of making a fireball mage (I guess everyone does this?) The docs all call for getting fancy items like Helms of Clearsight and non-lesser tattoos and whatnot, but the only way I've found to get a hold of these is shelling out real money for it. Or, barring that, hope it pops up in the auction house and try to win it against people that I'm sure have way more cash than I do. Is there some better way of getting the gear that you need for a particular strategy? I looked into rentals but I can never find the things I'm looking for.

Any advice? Thanks!

Hello and welcome to CB!

As for advice, it looks like you already have a great start. One key tip is concentrating your experience can be key, and you're doing great with that already. Don't worry about money, that will start to come soon enough, just keep at it. If you try and log in as many times as you can each day and fight through as much BA as you can, you'll go far. Best of luck and hope to see you around!

Oh yeah, one last thing. A regular tattoo is definitely a great investment, but the Helm of Clearsight (HoC) is too. However, a HoC can usually be rented, and tattoos grow, so my advice is try to pick and find a tattoo first. Later!

There's not an HoC in rentals right now, but there should be one popping up in the next few days. It's a must-have item, but you'll have plenty of time to save up in-game money to buy one off another player.

And the FB mage strat is a popular one to use while you learn the game, but singe-minion teams get pretty hard. Don't worry about that just yet, but let us know if you have any questions.
