Playing within your level

I’ve been playing some of my lower level wizards lately, which has left me reminiscing about playing back when it was all new and I was clueless.  Now, of course, I know much more, including a fair number of higher level tricks that low level wizards can use.

I will admit I use a few things here and there and, of course, my greater knowledge of strategy and game play means I run a better, faster battle than when I was new.  But for the most part I kind of like the challenge of playing within the tools KI gives you at each level.  I assume they’ve tested enough to know you can win your battles with the spells they grant for each school and I enjoy trying to maximize my impact within the bounds of what my wizard has been given.

Does that mean I don’t ever use a Feint TC I’ve passed over from another account or use a Star spell my pet offers?  No, I do those things once in a while — more likely if I’m soloing a boss than with a team.  But mostly if I’m in Triton Ave. with my level 7 wizard, I’m using my two-pip school spell and, depending on the wizard’s school, whatever has been granted in the way of traps and/or blades.

I do pass mega pets over to my new wizzes — usually ones that weren’t totally what I wanted – so they have a bit more in the way of heals or damage than they normally would.  But I’ve found I can win quite steadily without using level 8 TCs I’ve purchased at the Bazaar or tossing off Feints, etc.  Of course I’m not a player who’s fond of overkill — if that’s your thing, this stay-at-your-level plan probably won’t suit.

If you’re a little bored and you’ve been using all your high level stuff for your low level wizards you might have a bit of fun figuring out the best strategy for using the tools that go with your level.  Or even how many strategies can work…

About yogaleigh

Twenty-five years and counting on spiritual, personal growth journey. I've been to Nine Gates Mystery School, practiced yoga since 1985 and taught it off and on for the last 10 years. I've sat vipassana, studied with a Hopi elder for 2 years, practiced Hawaiian Huna, and dabbled in other traditions. Health and wellness have been very tied up in my journey - in fact I'd say issues in those areas propelled me into the spiritual journey. Still learning, still growing -- sometimes I think I like the journey to enlightenment too much to wish to reach it.
