I haven't started actually playing pwe since I had a few burning questions in the back of my mind. The last time I played PW of any kind was on a different private server so my questions are kind of skewed from that server:1) How long does it take to level to 150 here?2) How hard/long does it take to finalize gears (assuming endgame gear here is R9rr and like g16 necklaces)3) I saw a video of PWE pvp and everyone's faces on the hub looked disgusting; they looked as if you had turned off the customization option or something...does that go for everybody? Can i actually make a decent looking character here?4) My last server mostly used a combination of gold from voting and then spam opening packs using that gold to get the best items...is that similar here or can I grind for everything (or better yet, is everything already available for me?)5) What are the most popular and least popular classes?6) Since it looks like level grinding is forced on here, wouldn't I have trouble grinding on say a Cleric? I feel discouraged starting on one if I have to be spamming that Razor skill every 5 seconds (same goes for most of the other AA classes)7) Should I have a farming alt (like a sin) like most people on the main PWI server?8 ) How active is PvP on here? I think those are all my questions for now but I'll update the OP if I forgot something.
Thanks for your both of your answers!Some of them were very reassuring and some of them were a bit discomforting...For example, the disparaging time it takes to level depending on your dedication worries me a bit... a week to months? That sounds a bit drastic (I'm assuming one week means you are going at this game almost every day)Why would rank gear be based on luck...? How do you obtain R8/endgame custom gear (i guess this is kinda trailing into the guide section but I just want a quick simple answer)? What gear would suffice until then?I guess what I wanted to say was that I'd like to get to a sufficient gear/level state where I can PvP as fast as I canI don't mind farming like Sage/Demon skills instantly and such, but get to PvP gear asap would be ideal for me
1. I think that was a tad bit exaggerated it all depends how fast do you want to level and how do you want to do it. I've recently made another ep and decided to do it without having to spend too much epic coins. It took roughly 2 days. 110 to 140 is fairly easy afterwards it just get slightly slower but still doable. You can solo but if you don't feel like it there are always bunch of people at pv npc near archo leader who are looking for people to level with. Also (I think) each 10 levels you get some free stuff like weapons, cards and a super level scroll..2. Luck based meaning stats on your armor and weapon are random and sometimes it can take awhile to get the good stats and sometimes you might get lucky in couple of re-rolls. It does make sense when you look at the bigger picture. You need 8k warrior badges (or whatever their name is) to obtain needed reputation for your r8 ring. You can get that either from boutique, make with epic coins, do base quests and buy from base npc or even do morai (last two take more time tho)...I do not recommend pvp in anything other than r8r armor, you don't need perfect stats on it as that's something you can work on slowly but anything other than that would put you at too big of a disadvantage compared to end game geared pvpers..And make sure to check out Echo's godly guide to guides >here<
