Starting Character (in General)

Vicious Cat December 27 2010 3:44 PM EST

So I'm trying to start a new character (No Bonus) to try a couple of things for a new NCB run.
2 things:
1)I can't get XP on any Minion, no matter if I spend the higher or lower rate, This isn't right is it?
2) This is the first time I've looked at CB for summat like 8 months, and no-one has said "Welcome Back" :-P

at the start you don't get exp for any new hires... so go with the cheap one...

I would have posted something sooner, but honestly there's something about that cat picture that scares me.

I would use the bonus....why not? and do your testing....but once your ready for the real run...keep track of the farms you used before and it will save you some time searching on your real run.

Also welcome back

Aaaarrgghh - I keep forgetting that you can start another NCB while you are in the midst of one.

Ta for the tip

You can't have 2 at the same time, but you can retire and immediately start another

Vicious Cat December 27 2010 4:53 PM EST

Yep - Is it my memory, or was there never a time when if you started an NCB that was it for three (six now) months?

It used to be 4 months and you couldn't create another until that one was out of the bonus. Which led to me creating some silly nonsense threads about getting one tranferred to me and things like that.

You can also save up 1600 BA and start one, which I would recomend since you do get a pretty big jump if you use it all during whacky exp time.
