So I am very new, and I don't have a lot of gear.

I tell you all of this,though, because I am a apparently a very lucky SOB and pulled a golden ticket!

So now I am here asking for advice as to what class I really should play (I think I have an ok Paladin and a good Bard load out for a newb) because I want to play but I don't want to hold the party down. I think I want into the combat run because my puzzle skills last year were lacking.

Any advice is welcome!


Congratulations!

You should play whichever class you identify with, and not worry about gear too much.

Ask yourself if you would prefer puzzle or combat, and then look at what is available.

I'm sure you will have a great time regardless.

Not to push you away, but you might also be consider trading your golden ticket for a Charm of Avarice. That is a token that goes for about $1200 and gives you between 12 and 14 extra tokens at the end of each run you do. You can't wear your amulet with it, but you would definitely be able to trade that as well.

Whichever choice you make, I'm sure you will be happy.


No worries, and thank you for the advice. That amulet sounds tempting but I think I may value the experience more. I've run combat once so for me either sounds great! I only worry about gear because this event seems pretty intense from what I experienced last year, without much forgiveness. Which is great! I love that. I just don't want to die in the first room. :P

I am in your group now. we can make it on nightmare(if everyone agrees)
I promise you will make it to room 6 for sure. Most likely 7. i have to wait and see who else is in the group to say that for sure

Don't. The nice thing about having months to prepare is that, odds are, someone or someones in your party will have gear to spare to get you to a Nightmare-worthy build, CoAs included. The only thing people are skittish about lending out are weapons, because everything else can be returned before even leaving the coaching room.

And people love their Nightmare, for the extra 1000xp and rare competition token, if nothing else.

if you have a weapon. I can max out your class on everything else

And the golden apple will give our whole group the amulet of wonder effect (in addition to whatever amulet you actually wear).

Assuming he wants to play Paladin at a level 5/5 and wasn't just listing his class preferences, I will defer, and would then like Dwarf Fighter at 5/5.

If he wasn't saying that, then please change my Paladin preference to 5/5. I definitely want to play one of the 2 defender type classes, and prefer Paladin, but will move aside if he prefers it.

I was just listing my preferences. I think I misunderstood the system used. I don't mind playing Bard or Ranger.

Please change my preferences to Bard 5/5 and Ranger 4/5.

If you are certain you don't want paladin, I would be very happy to play it, at 5/5.
If you want it, it is yours.
