What would you change? (in New players)

Ok so here's my NP Post. I did change one thing as it seems to be a dead end and therefore misleading. Now I have always looked at the Post as sort or a condensed and chaptered version of need to know things from the wiki. However, I am always up to trying to make it better. So like the title what would you change? Different links to the Wiki? If so from where and which ones? A new look? Show me :-)

At 4am with a six-pack in my belly, I won't try to judge what to change. However, I will say that I like the condensed version better than the previous.

Would you change the categories? What is in the categories? What about the colors?

Would still like to know ;-)

Black background. Orange colored words. With the links in green. :)

I think this should be included somewhere in it considering it is probably one of the biggest mistakes people commit when they start playing this game.

Quote from OB:

"Tip: Strength and Dexterity are useful if you are using a weapon, but if you are casting a spell, they are all but useless. You're better off focusing on the spell if you go that route.

Also, if a minion has a spell trained and is simultaneously holding a weapon, he'll cast the spell and fore go the weapon."

Or maybe start a new wiki page with straight to the point tips such as this one. Although the Tips and Advice for New Players are nice they do not contain such simple yet vital points in strategies.

That doesn't need to be hidden with a link, that needs to be a pop-up when they're first training stats. I've begged for the weapon/magic one for ages, and I thought it was added, but I guess not.
