i got a lvl 17 air/earth dragon osamoda on the P server and its true that a party (or atleast the sidekick) is needed after asturb.... he problem is that they wont enable the sidekick system before the upcoming multimen patch around march so its kinda hard playing alone. (reminds me of the movie Sky High where the coach yells "Siiiiidekick!")
Since there are 4 different nations its a bit hard to make a onrpg clan without all going one single nation.
Simple, we all join the same clan.
I'm a level 20 Feca right now, I respec'd to fire, but I think I'm going to respec earth or water. Fire is really niche, kind of useless once they pass my glyphs and the DOTs just not worth it.
I enjoyed the game when Dofus was completely free, I think in the beta of something. Made a Xelor and so far loving how much mechanics are in this class. Currently level 8, ign: Apostle and also in the P server, if anyone wants to party.
And this is one of those games where soloing feels like a tedious chore. I used to play it in a group of 3 people and it was mad fun. Soloing starts taking too long at some point regardless of what class you are so partying is your best bet.
there are very little NPCs in the game. since u cant use items of any kind in battle there are no merchant NPCs. most quests will lead u to exactly where you need to go and using your actual map shows locations of most things in that town. just follow the main quest lines and see if you can do some dungeon runs with people.
