I think I accidentally aliased look since when I try to use it I get "Warning this alias has no commands in it. Did you set it correctly". Is it possible to fix this and put it back to normal?

This may be late and you may of figured this out, but if you don't mind my saying something, you might consider a reset if you ar unhappy with the way you built the character your first time through. You have to start out at level 1, but you keep all of your gold and purchased practices. Then, you cantake more care with spending practices and building stats to better suit your  class needs. I, myself have reset my level 33 thief 8 times since I first started her and each time it was to fix or improve something that I found critical.

For example, spend your first 10 or 15 levels focused only on your stats and those skills that are abosultely necessary for your primary class. You should try to et your primary stats up to at least 25 as quicky as possible, then you can work on other stats, or start picking up skills. It does get much harder at higher levels to raise stats.

As for your gear... you really do need to focus it a bit more on warrior items; there's a lot of good  quest items as well as warrior gear in the game. Keep an eye on donation rooms and player shops. For level 32, there some fairly decent warrior gear in the forest south of the chapel WP  and crafted items may be useful at a certain point. I have 2 rings that gives me +10 DR, but could just as easily get +10HR, Armor in the upper teens and so on. Don't be afraid to look for players who might help offer advice about your class and look cloasely at the articles and help pages to help you design a better warrior.

Hope this helped a bit.

I know that I just registered, mainly because I didn't know that this place existed and it doesn't seem very active.

But, having said all of that, I can't send PM's because it askes me to enter a series of letters in an image, but I can't see the image and there isn't an option for an audio output, so can that verification either be disabled, or a blind assessable option incorporated so that blind players, like me, can send PM's?

Thank you for your time,

Don't feel bad, I haven't been able to log on since last night. I get the same message. I sent an email to Dentin this morning, but I haven't gotten a reply yet.

Keeping my fingers crossed, I'm jonesing for my fix. lol

If you click on "whos Playing" on the game site, it shows "Builders" logged in. So maybe its maintenance. I'm not sure.

I wasn't able to log on today and just wanted to make sure it wasn't something on my end creating a problem. It says game is locked for maintenance. Just curious if there is always a certain day that it goes down. And possibly how long the game stays down for, average.

Hello al!
I think I shouldn't be posting here, since I'm currently level 32, but I don't see any other option.
First, I have to tell you that English is absolutly not my primary language. I do my best to be understood, but regarding people's reactions in games or in other forums, it's probably more confusing than anything else. But I'll do my best to explain my issue here, hoping some of you will know how to help me.

As I said, I am level 32, lvl 32 warrior and 26 thief to tell only about my main classes.
For several weeks now, I've been wondering the Alter Aeon main land. I'm trying to avoid returning to the islands, because I know I'm not supposed to be there anymore. But here's the thing : for some reasons I'll try to examine further with you, I don't feel comfortable, as if I didn't have the power related to my current level.
Tis is what I'm sure of :
I've made many mistakes with practices. Knowing nothing (as Jon Snow) about the game itself, having less skills in English than I do now, I chose to learn many skills, slightly neglecting my stats. As a result, my natural stats aren't so good. So this is probably an important factor. I try to correct this as much as I can, but it's a tricky thing : practices were far easier to earn at the begining .
Next, and probably the main topic here, my equipment. I'm still learning about the game's mechanisms, and I think I've understood some details about how a warrior should be balanced. The probleme is... everything seems to be important : hitroll, damroll, dex, str, warskill, and it's hard to find pieces of equipment that gives everything, or even part of this. For weapons, it's far more difficult. I have to find a weapon that does enough damage, and that gives me enough stats. To be perfect, this weapon has to allow me to do groundstrikes. And, to be absolutly amazing, I have to find such a weapon for each global situations (skeletons, plants, ethereal creatures...). If I choose a one handed weapon, I have to look for a good shield too.
You might say, as many did before, that this is just the difficulty you find in every game, nd that I have to deal with it. You are right. My probleme is not the number of criteria I have to consider, but the fact that I absolutly don't find any really good piece of equipment. Trust me if I tell you I'm exploring, identify everything I can, even items that doesn't look so good, you never know what you may find . I'm regularly checking the donated items. I try to examine the articles in every shop I find. But nothing seems better than what I have for my level, and I'm pretty sure that's not enough.
I really love this game. To me it's one of the best muds I've ever played. But I don't know how to deal with this. I don't have much gold, but I'm totally ok to spend it all to pay someone who would be kind enough to review my equipment and, maybe, sugest some tipical items for my level that may help me to start on stable bases.

To give you an idea of my situation, I'l put my stats bellow, as well as my current equipment. Remember that I'm lvl 32 warrior, with 107 total levels.

stats :
I have 32/25 str, 15/15 int, 19/17 wis, 23/22 dex, 29/22 con, and 15/15 chr.
I have 14 hitroll, 18 damroll, and my attack speed is fast.
I have 32 strength and attack fast for 3d20+18 damage, with a damage/time of 97.
I have an armor class of 130.

Those are my stats with my equipment of course and spells active.

And now , my equipment :
head        - a fish-shaped helmet  (glow) (alternativly a dwarven mithril helmet)
neck        - a dwarven mithril torque  (glow)
neck        - a unicorn pendant (unique)     (glow)
arms        - a runed titanium armband
wrist       - a dark bone bracer (unique)   
wrist       - a razor barbed bracer (rare)     
hands       - a pair of ranger gloves (artifact) 
finger      - a dionite ring
finger      - a warden's signet ring (rare)     
on body     - an elven chainmail shirt (rare)     
about body  - the pelt of a huge brown bear (artifact) 
waist       - a crackling eel skin belt (artifact) 
legs        - a pair of black war pants (artifact) 
feet        - buckled leather shoes (unique)   
shield      - a ruby inlaid shield (artifact)   (glow)
weapon      - Peacekeeper, sword of order (unique)   

I know this is not an usual asking for help, and that it may sound a little excessive. But I don't know if this is a language probleme, or some bad luck in my search for equipment, but I've seen a lvl 28 necro who was clearly more efficient than I in combat, and I found it a little frightening Cheesy.

I really hope you will accept to help me on my journey through Alter Aeon!

Best regard,

I sold everything I had about 5 years ago and quit playing. I recently picked back up playing out of boredom and would like to aquire some things I once owned as well as get a jump start on my bank account.

I know talon for literally the entire time Ive played sold eq and gold. For a while it was cargo, horo, page, Mason, and several others.

Currently however I've seen noone selling old eq and gold. If there are such people either make a post with everything you have to offer or email me and we can talk. Thanks.

Hello! I don't know if this forum is active but I'm brand new and I've got a few questions.
- do I have to multiclass or can I stay in a single class?
- is there roleplay here?
- is there a clan/guild/party system?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a level 47 character who's just started doing level 24 or so areas. I'm afraid I forget their exact names.

Up to now, things have been pretty easy, but now one or two combats wil drain mine and my companion's mana so that we spend more time resting than doing anything else. My primary class is druid, with levels of cleric, mage and thief thrown in in that order.

I tend to call the most powerful animal companion I can, while my necromancer companion uses a zombie and possibly a demon. My primary offensive spell is Flame Strike, seeing as it seems to offer the best mana-damage ratio at the moment.

Anyway, a helpful player told me that most of my equipment was entry level and that I would need to upgrade it before going further and I'm certainly starting to feel the inadequacies in that area. My question is, how do I go about upgrading?

Mana regen items and cast level items are certainly important. I need to improve my mana regen. Thing is that most of the items I find only improve it by two points at most and have few other stats and, of course, it's important to boost other stats as well. I'm reluctant to swap items that improve my saves for mana regen items so I guess I'm asking what the most important stats are, but there's a bigger problem.

By sacrificing corpses and completing quests, you only get a couple of hundred gold a time if you're lucky, whereas everything in the shops, everything that isn't potions that is, costs thousands, I only have 7000 gold and change. Selling things in the shops seems to be worse by far. I valued some chain mail sleaves I was waring, and the shopkeeper blithely told me that they were worth 3000 or so gold but that he would only give me 25 for them. It seems that this is a pattern - that shopkeepers will only buy things for around 1% of the price, which hardly makes it worth recalling every time your inventory is full to sell stuff and then walking back to where you were, particularly since you have to go to so many different shops to sell different classes of item.

I've thought about auctioning stuff, but I don't have a handle on what things sell well on there yet. No-one's gone for the two items I tried putting up there so far.

So what are the best ways to get gold and buy equipment and, having bought it, how do you recoup the gold you've spent in a reasonable time?

Should I be using a weapon for the times when my mana runs out or would I be better with a totem?

Thanks so much for any help you can offer a confused rooky.
