So I've been trucking along, but bouncing around games a lot. I mixed up my hero skills a bit and was able to handle the fire imp things a bit better. However, once you get past the first couple of groups, there is this area where 3 or 4 groups of mobs are just quickly patrolling all over the place and I can't quite figure out how to pull one without pulling the whole entire thing on top of me (which obviously results in a wipe). I also don't understand why Vekk (who is responsible for an important anti-element charm) insists on running into the middle of the mobs and getting himself killed over and over.
So I went back to my Factions ranger and played that for a while. I'm level 18 or 19 and up to the 3rd non-tutorial mission.
Then I decided to fire up Nightfall because I'm impatient like that. I created a Dervish, which I like playing even more than the Ranger. IMHO they finally perfected the tutorial area in Nightfall - even though I knew about most everything, it was nice to see they gave you quests to learn everything from henchman movement to using collectors. I also like the Sunspear points mechaninc, although I'm fairly confident it just becomes a grind at some point
. When do you run into Lightbringer points?
I see that it is double Sunspear/Lightbringer points this weekend, so I should probably spend time in Nightfall. At what point can you get upgraded armor for your heroes? I've been updating their weapons at least.
