dealing with death and recovery

(1/1)

jonas3:
Thanks for everyone who help me in the forum and in the game with the DK quest. Yesterday I almost got it. Sadly I died and lost everything on both characters.

  I lost the best weapon I have ever found (Executioner's axe) which really made a big difference so I am not sure how I am going to get back to even the same level of strength to take on the quest again. I have never come across other axes or 1 handed long swords that together even match the output of the axe. Plus it was very cool to have the axe sort of built my character around it form a role playing perspective.

How do people (newbies) recover from losses like this?

I thought that maybe I could improve my power buy buying rank perks. Can anyone recommend some suggestions how to gain more rank solo and are there any guides on how to use low level rank perks? So far I purchased the ones that lower my AC but not sure where to go from there.

So far I only have rank 7 on the DK. I am only a casual player and often can only play at off hours so it makes what I can do difficult. I did manage to get my DK to 27 and my druid to 25 by mostly grinding it out.

Thanks

Hey friend, I loaded your axe and I'll hold onto it for you until we run into each other. Send a tell to Pragor in game or ask someone with a MYTH tag to track me down for you. I'm happy to give you some help with the basics as well.

This post needs a little love with the fresh start coming. First, check out the merchant. If you've got coin, that generally will get you a couple items with stats. Second, do what you can while you have gear to make friends. I know my barb and healer over the years have been generously gifted that axe amoung others. Third, I generally have a minor knowledge of entry gear zones, mid gear zoned, and then finally elite/rank gear zones. Helps with leveling fresh, and restarting from untimely demises. Trade out gear as it goes. Having a alternate character to play helps too. I'll usually run my barb up to rank first, and when the cleric gear starts getting out of hand in my inventory/vault, roll my priest. If one dies, the other can zone until recovered. Last little tip,  if you find bores truforge, he's a man worth getting familiar with for situations like this.
