    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    25+ - wherever you may roam.
    Idk why people like hunting rats....lesser frost shades(IMT NG) or lesser ghouls, skeletons, phantoms(landing GY) are both just as easy, and actually HAVE loot. I tend to have 100k silver from just hunting(not skinning) by the time I am 10 trains...after I buy 2x gear(1x and 3x arnt worth it)

    I run all my characters through rats because I have a WizardFE script that I've used since the beginning of time. Your approach sounds vastly more efficient. I'll give it a shot if I roll any new characters up.

When he was spelled up by my wizard account, he played great, albeit a bit slow at hunting by comparison to other classes, but fine. When I moved him to TV, and didn't bring my Wizard out there, he just couldn't hold his own anymore. Stance dancing, running away from targets, vulnerable to spells (especially in low armor classes)... It wasn't working great. The monk having 1207 made him easier to play than the warrior because he could reliably disable everything with 3s cast RT.

    Bard did not die as much as the warrior, but he was SOOOO BORING. Bards have the benefit of higher DS, higher AS, but lack of fun CMANs to use. In the end, they are kind of dull to play until you unlock a lot of their spells. Also, a lot of spells and utility are locked out for bards. No loresinging, room effect spells, or purification.

    Warrior legitimately seems to suffer from not having spells in early game. Never had to go quite that hard on the shield training. I did have to get spelled up, which is a problem for free characters, until I got into full brig and higher.

    At level 6, you WILL have enough mana to hunt snow spectres.

    I typically do:

    0-6 - swing OHE in rats
    6-12 - 903 spectres
    12-16 - 903 fire guardians/firephantoms in SOL (Do CoL in this time frame)
    16-25 - 906 wood wights/woodsmen - wights can boil but typically die to one cast of 906
    25+ - wherever you may roam.
    When I level my F2P wizards, and I've leveled 3 or 4 of them to 25+ now - this is how it looks:

    Level 1-6 - PUNCH things with 3s RT and they die in 1-2 hits
    Level 6-10 - PUNCH things with 1s RT and they die in 1-2 hits (that's 1-2 seconds)
    Level 10-20 - KICK things with 1s RT (10 ranks of air lore) and they die in 1-4 hits

    From my experience, bolting is not only slower, but mana limited. If you run out of mana, your hunt ends. With 506, you can kill faster with UAC than bolting, and also never have mana problems. Claids are very slow early on, so I would agree that swinging one is not optimal for the Wizard when UAC is going to be faster in general.

    Ahh yes. Now that you mention it I do recall the range of ability from having minimal risk full offensive fighting to having to stance dance with lesser critters due to being spelled or not. I guess I blocked out that shit, cause it did really suck. I did F2P warrior till 26th train (though i got two old style lumnis before the change from trial to F2P) And I focused on armor support because it made me friends for spells since those were so critical. Most of the time spells were easy enough to come by, but your criticism is quite valid.

    How dare you speak to your silver shrike charm like that!

    [Roll result: -101 (open d100: -153)]
    You hear a loud *thud* behind you. Turning around, you see a giantman thug lying on his face.

    [Roll result: -114 (open d100: -79)]
    A human thug's attempt to bash fails miserably and managed to hit himself instead! Self-inflicted blow leaves a human thug reeling about comically!

    Monk class is one of the easiest to level up. I don't understand why they get such a bad rap. I'm not F2P but this class by far has been the easiest for me.

    I'm as serious as a heart attack on a 600 lbs person who never exercises!

    I have 2 degrees in stupid and a masters in retardation. I used to teach idiocy. So I know more about stupid than you!
