advice for a non USD spender. is my chance over? (in General)

Catdog July 14 2012 4:14 PM EDT

i've been back a few weeks and racking my brain trying to figure out how to get back in after a long break and cash out. Yes i did not need to cash out you could say hey you blew it you had a shot but lets be honest is that the same logic for a USD spender? i want another chance at getting to the top as i'm healthy now and can burn the BA like a pro again but my NUB is gone was that it? any advice will be greatly appreciated.

The short answer is yep. But that is my opinion. The only way to get a top tier character is to have a NUB or buy one by what ever means. But you can learn to love playing the game for many reasons like I do. I like to fight and grow, always buying and selling in auctions, camp the store logs, make use of rentals, sell namings/supportership and special items. I dont forge anymore though I used to quite heavily at one time, and I rarely use chat but loving the forums!

Run multiple NCBs. You make a lot of CB if you don't buy BA during them. I have never bought any CB or used USD of mine, yet I am doing quite well ;)

^_^ As the gentleman before me has explained... An NCB has the exact same EXP bonus as a NUB, all it lacks is the Money Bonus... so you will be making money like the rest of us ^_^ If you want to make money, either grow a tattoo with the NCB, or make a char about 2.5mil to 3.5 mil MPR, and switch to Forging. There's lots you can do... I just recycle NCB's until I get the strat I want.

Yeah, running multiple NCBs allows you to experiment with strats and see what you like. It also allows you to build a tattoo and NW in items along with extra cash. So eventually, if your goal is to get to the top, then you can either buy a high MPR character or make a final run using the knowledge and cash you have saved up.

Now your chance for an easy way to the top is over, unless you spend USD.

If I were to switch over to a fighter, I could do pretty good with an NCB, I've forged all my gear up to top NW status. That could be one option before you start an NCB! =)

I have ran many a top tier char without usd influance. I have chased around the pros and hassled them for years. All you need is to plan ahead and steategize :P you can do it

It's painful and frustrating at times if you choose to not touch USD but it's doable, I've done it.

You don't need money, just real world money accelerates the process, lots of ways to get money just most people lack the patience...even though it doesn't take that long, I try not to use real world cash for virtual currency...and somewhat pride myself not a fellow alliance member I'll be able to forge your gear too to help get you started...just send a chatmail with the gear over and how much free encumbrance space you have and I'll see what I can do.
