I am a Swedish RPG fan who sometime make pen and paper stuff for roleplaying conventions. I love RPGs, MMOs and turned based strategy games, listens to metal and work as a CNC coder/industrial worker.  I currently live in Malmö (next to Coopenhagen) but will be moving to Öland soon. And for the moment I work weekends so I have plenty of spare time on weekdays but will be unavaliable saturdays and sundays. And I know stuff about history that makes people stare very strangely at me, just love to read about the past without any specific favorite period. I can use a sword, have a good one as well (hand made copy with the original from about year 1000) as a chainmail and helmet but I wouldn't call myself good with it. My favorite beverage is Guiness.

    Ok i see now

    And this elite trait/skill line..is that something i can unlock from the start or is that only a lvl 80 thing if i choose to buy the xpacs
    You need indeed to be lvl 80 (max) to start on a speciality class. 

    Take theif for instance, you play as a regular thief to lvl 80. Once you are up there you can start putting skill points into Daredevil and Deadshot and while you theoritically can go over to it after you unlock the first ability youprobably do better if you unlock all or at least most of it before doing the switch.

    Unlike mastey points that is shared on all your characters you must be 80 to start this process and get benefits for it. 

    A spec class will give you access to one extra weapon, new traits you can pick and skills you can choose.

    Take my thief again for instance. When I specc myself as a daredevil I get staff as weapon (using it like a bo, not a mage staff), I get an extra dodge and I can pick 3 traits from the daredevil triat line (out of 9). I also get aceess to a couple of new skills

    If I instead pick a deadshot I get access to the rifle, my steal skill get exchanged for an aiming skill and the option to sit down in a sniper position to increase my range and damage output. I also get different traits and skills to pick.

    And I need to own HoT to be a daredevil and PoF to be a deadshot. 

    You can of course just stay as the standard thief as well but the 2 specc classes tend to be better.

    Thx for ur wise words

    But if i deside to buy the xpacs..do i get any benefits from these in the start of the game...i see there is a boost but i was planning on to play the game from a to z because i hate boost..you miss alot of game mechanics and story and so on...
    Basically you get more char slots, I think an extra inventory bag and if you get HoT another class. You probably get some few bonus items as well But honestly can you just play up a character to max level before bothering to buy the packs.

    I would at least play up a couple of classes to level 20 so you know which class to boost for the 80 boost if you don't plan to level them up manually, all classes are rather different and you probably wont like all of them, most of us have our favorites (mine is thief).

    I would say that PoF is a far better expansion then HoT but HoT is mainly about massive content chained together while most of PoF is more small group content and something you can solo if you want to.

    One good way to make the leveling easier and more fun would be to buy PoF, level up one character to 80 and play until you unlock the raptor (second mission you do but the first is just a few minutes talking) which would unlock the raptor to all your characters and then have a mount as you level up your character from 1 to 80, it would speed any travels up.

    You need a level 80 to get any use from the expansions but you will get a lvl 80 boost for each and all masteries you unlock including glider (HoT) and mounts (PoF) are account wide (for any level) which is worth considering if you plan to have alts you play up.

  • 24, 28 & 32 bags and how to get them

    Some people are great at handling their inventory but the rest of us need larger bags. These bags come in 3 variants, regular oiled and invisibly.

    Requirements: These bags are account bound so you need 500 in tailoring, leather working or armorcrafting. The only other way to get them is that the 24 bag drop rarely in the final chest at "Breaking the bank" (see Spool of Deldrimor Thread). I havn't got one there myself but I only got the final chest 5 times or so. You don't need PoF to craft them but if you don't you need to buy all mats from the AH so it helps if you do.

    There is a recipe for each of the 24 bag (can be bought or looted in "Breaking the bank, I gotten several in the last chest but 1 in each chest 2 & 3. The 28 and 32 are done through discovery. Don't be upset if you don't loot them, they are cheap to buy.

    The 24 bag:
    2 20 slots bags of the model you want to make.

    4  Spool of Deldrimor Thread. These can be bought or you find them in chests. Go into the dwarven ruins just south of Derelict Ruins waypoint and run past the mastery insight/vista until you get to the room with a bunch of priory NPCs. From there, look for another room with a bunch of broken cart tracks. Once you are in that room, you want to look for a small opening to your right that will lead you to the room for the curious bowl. Put in a gold piece and you get into a room with 2 chests in, pick one at random and either get a chest and pass to the next room or get teleported back (50/50). The first box will give you a single thread, the next 2 1-2 and the final chests a bunch + a chance at a 24 bag.

    1 Supreme Rune of Holding. Can be bought for around 12 golds or won in the casino playing the sandstorm game. Unless you are lucky it is probably cheaper to buy it but also less fun. :)

    1  Pulsing Brandspark (leatherr bag, looted from unidentified rare gear, crafted or bought) , 10  Sliver of Twitching Forgemetal (metal, looted or bought) or 100 Congealed Putrescence (cloth, looted or bought).

    That will give you 1 24 slot bag and while it isn't cheap I think it is worth it, I made 3 for my main myself.

    The 28 bag needs a single 24 bag, 5 supreme runes and the rest same as the 24 bag. I would not get it unless I already had full of 24 slots and still need more space, unless you are really lucky those runes will cost you 60 gold.

    The 32 bag needs a 28 bag, 12 runes and the rest same again.

    I think that is about it, good luck and fair journeys. :)
