I normally lock myself in the suggestions subforum but I figured I may as well contribute something for new users to read through before they spend time and money on something they may not end up enjoying. For those unfamiliar with what I normally work on refer to this thread and go through either of the indexes to explore several articles proposed thus far. Similarly to the previously link I will be using the first post of the current thread as an index for analyses of weapons for those questioning whether the weapon they have their eye on is worth an arm and a leg. "You care about new people?" Not particularly, but if it means educating at least one person instead of leaving them to rot and suffer then it would be worth the effort. These notes are based on personal experience though personal preference may influence the tone of writing occasionally. Tutorials from others will be linked in the index so readers can skip to what they want to see instead of trucking through the whole thing. These notes are not the only way to use the equipment but tend to have more positive results than what most new users attempt. Feel free to point out errors and incorrect points. If anyone has questions feel free to chat with me personally in game; my knight name is the same as my forum name. Do not send personal requests for donation. Weapons, shields, and armor (helmet and torso) equipment will be discussed here in a somewhat relevant order to how commonly they are picked up by newer players, meaning Wolver armor will be one of the first few articles to address. The index is divided by equipment type to prevent ambiguity but will be listed in chronological order in their respective divisions. I intentionally exclude equipment which does not reach 4* at least because they are short term items which will be abandoned to make room for something which does continue. Equipment is listed at its base variant (lowest star rank available) but their maximum variants are addressed in the individual notes. Yerp.
