This guide is for players who have just turned level 30. If you're a new player and have not hit level 30 yet, focus on the quest lines, crafting, and professions before you come back to this guide.
Firstly, a rough reference guide of the progression of armor:
Green armor from Waldenbach > Blue armor pieces from Windsor Hold (T1.5) > Crafted armor pieces from the merchants in Waldenbach (C1.5) > Blue armor pieces from Bitterburg ruins and Bitterburg keep / Crafted armor from Bitterburg Keep (T2)
So you're level 30, punk?
Congratulations! You just hit the big 3-oh. You're now one of the kings of the serv... well wait not yet. There is still so much to do now that you can unlock the highest gear. So let's start easy, head to Walden, we're going to get you some gear.
Buy your first set
You might have been leveling up and collecting gear, some of your pieces of gear might work, but most are probably trash at this point. Buy a whole new set of armor from Waldenbach Armor, you want in specific all of the mage armor, Vicious Silk Hands, Leather Walkers, Vindicator of Valiance, Gift of Truth, Warped Robes, Silk Leggings - Then head to Waldenbach Weapons, you want to purchase all of the mage wands, Relentless focus, Harmonized bauble, reforged globe.
Head to your new home, Windsor Hold
With your new set, you can now take on the Windsor Hold Skelies in a 1v1. Head over to WH and start killing skeletons to get WH keys. Use these keys to open the WH dungeon. You can run this dungeon on your own, try to survive to wave 10, if you can, and wave 20 or 30 once you unlock more powerful gear. You need livisium, plenty of liv. Every 6 liv you can go back to Walden and buy a crafting book (Did I mention you need level 29 crafting to craft these?) to craft better gear, this is really the point where you get to pick which class you want to focus on. Additionally you will get blue gear from WH that is better than your store bought gear, but worse than the crafted gear.
Wow, you grinded 96 Liv and are fully crafted.
Congrats, you've done a lot... now it's time to head to Bitterburg ruins. You'll need a squad of 5 to complete this dungeon, you'll get slightly better than crafted gear from this dungeon, so run it as much as you want.
Uh... BK now? Idk not to this point dad, please help
