Wow! Thanks for so many helpful answers!

First question: what is "lixing"?

Second question: for pets and mounts purchased with bounties, what tier should he aim for as a free player? I saw you can buy various quality of each pet and mounts.

Third question: no one mentionned druid as an option. Why? In other mmorpg, healers are alway in such demand that they tend to have very goid gear (always invited to dungeons and such) compared to other class of same level. Is it not the same here?

Forth question: what is the newest server so we have plenty of low levels to play with. If it changes anything we are in Ottawa (Canada) so eastern time.

Again, many thanks for the help!

All classes can be played in a manner of conserving gold, but if u play together than as a duo it becomes much much easier when two classes can cover each other. A combo I really like is druid-mage, with the druid's support the mage can go wild and if the mage uses Sacrifice (a tome that drops in Otherworld), which sacrificies hp for energy (u gain more energy than the hp u sacrifice tho), then u can use it on urself and the druid while druid heals u and neither of u will need even eng elix, meanwhile u can still dish out high dmg. That was my favorite duo for saving gold, but if u want deadly fast kill duos then mage-rogue, mage-warrior, rogue-warrior and mage-tank are all good cus:
1. Mage-Rogue both have high burst dmg and if the mage carries pierce lure the dps of rogue goes up by a lot.
2. Mage-Warrior same as mage rogue except that either the warrior can shatter for himself or u can use a lure to benefit his mainhand while he dishes out dmg and is more durable (although rogue can self heal)
3. Warrior-Rogue, works same as the first duo, shatter+rogue while both do high dmg and more durable than mages
4. Mage-Tank, simply have tank hold every mob in room while mage uses 2 aoes + firebolt + firecloak to destroy all mobs at once, likely a really fast one but would mean u need a tank that can stya alive.

EDIT: Oh and I played for free all the way to like lvl 227, still managed to become end-game, get warmount and regular mounts, dragon pet, pets/mounts for alts, so on. I only started buying plat since last double plats and I dont spend much at all, I just enjoy the double plat benefit. As long as others buy plat u just need gold.

I have played for over 5 years now on multiple servers without ever putting any $ into game. I have been and am end game and have had no problem getting what I need. Yes I don't have the best mount but if I really wanted to I could get it.

My point is, I don't think that $ is truly required to play this game. Yes it helps and always will help, but no class is unattainable if you have the time and desire to play.

I play ranger and druid mostly, just as those are my favorite I have tried them all.

Hope that helps!

As far as servers it just depends. I might do some research before picking one as they are all very diffrent. Some have alot of comp, others don't. It all depends on what environment you want to play in.

As far as mounts, I would start out with the lowest tier if you are planning on just using bounties. It takes a long time for higher tiers if you don't by mount tokens.

1) Lixing is the use of elixers. They give 15 minute bonuses to various things. They can be purchased through platinum or can be bought by other players using in game gold currency. I have never bought a lix with plat in 6 years of playing. Many players get them in plat purchased chests, which give random items, and sell them. Knowing fair prices is important. After midgame lixing is critical.

2) Bounties for pets and mounts requires a lot of patience. For pets I recommend getting the highest tier because exchanging them is a problem later since you only get half. But having the pet lets a player work the ability for the pet by using it. For the battlemount, the above suggestion is good because a player can now exchange two top lower tier mounts for a higher tier mount. I haven’t done the math but I’m pretty sure it beats returning the mount for half the tokens you spent.

3) druids are extremely challenging to level up to end game becauee with lixes many people solo. Druids have a slow cook damage, but with patience they can get there. However you are correct that end game druids are always in demand. Getting there is the problem. But if you can find a level buddy/lixing group, that makes up for it.

4) Newest server doesn’t necessarily mean most low level. The newest server is Nuada. However, other servers have more activity at low mid and end game. Each server has a different personality as well. Some work for some. Some don’t. Doing your research helps. Unfortunately, there is no game sanctioned way to transfer from one server to another, so taking time early is wise. If you are interested in Rosmerta, feel free to pm me and I’ll try to give you a good sense of what I consider home.

Warrior or mage are the best accounts to start from scratch.
Druid and ranger are the worst.
Rogue is quick levelling but can be expensive, if you start with some foundation it’s the best because what you spend on restos you make up for in way less lixes.

My son wants to play this game but he will only be allowed to put very limited $$$ into it (he does get play cards from here and there).

What class and build would be better suited for someone with time to invest but little money?

I tried the game and it is a lot of fun. But after a couple hours of game play i have the sense that some of the very important content is out if reach without real money (pet and mounts). Is that the case?

Ps: i may also join but with real money. I have $$$ but no time...hahaha

Warrior by far is th easiest clas/least expensive in my opinion (more survivability means less resto pots needed, which is the true gold drainer lol). It was my first class ever and I loved it. I suggest you go to the warrior section of the forums and look at the guides there.

As for money, it is very possible to do well without spending a dime. Just do bounties every single day and build up the purple bounty tokens which can then be exchanged for a pet/battlemount. For pet I suggest the rabbit because of the hp/energy regen, very good for free to play players. You don’t need to worry about battlemounts until you get a dL offhand which is way later down the line.
