I've been playing for a little while now but I'm concerned that my equipment and weapons aren't quite up to scratch.
Currently I have:
Elven Helmet of Wisdom - 3 Int, 3 Armor
Wizard's Forest Fire Staff - 50-62 Dam, 2.3 Speed, 2 Int, 1 M/s, 1 Armor
Thinker's Red Cloak - 1 Int, 1% Hit, 14 Armor
My stats are:
I was wondering if anyone can offer any advise as to whether this is bad, OK, good or whatever and some suggestions on how I can improve my character. I'm not against using some platinum or similar if needs be but naturally free stuff would be better. Does anyone have any comments, tips or equipment/weapon suggestions that would be good for my level?
(I guess at the moment my main feeling is that it takes too long between each shot from my staff (2.3s?) and when I get hit, my HP goes down quite quickly).
As an aside, I have a question with regards to items that are picked up during fights. Currently I just go to my character screen and sell the items for between 20-100-ish gold, depending upon the item. But is there a better way to get money for these? I obviously see people auctioning items and wonder if I should do the same. e.g. I currently have with me a Student's Desert Flame Staff (lvl 40, 127 Int, 86-90 dam, 2.3 speed, 1 dex, 1 int, 2 armor) which I can sell for 140 but is it worth much more than that?
My last question is about XP - it seems that for more mobs, I get around 1 or 2 XP per kill - when grouped - is that about right? Or should I be getting more?
Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
