View Full Version : When are you really required to upgrade your abilities?

<DIV>It seems that when I am in combat, I only use 5-6 different abilities.  I am only level 20 right now, so this is bound to change, but right now, is it worth it to purchase upgraded adepts to replace the apprentice ones?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>For instance, the kick that I got at a very low level, served me pretty well without an upgrade until I received charge.  Charge is still orange to me, so it doesn't appear to need an upgrade.  It is on the same timer as kick, I think, so I just got rid of the kick hotkey and replaced it with charge.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>There is no use keeping kick around is it?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>My problem with upgrading is that I have too many options to spend my money on, but not enough cash to go around.  It seems that I have to spend money for either:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>1.  Upgrades for abilities</DIV> <DIV>2.  Upgrade for equipment</DIV> <DIV>3.  Tradeskills</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>All of my armor is yellow to me now so it is good.  All of the jewelry on the left hand side of the inventory screen is greening out on me.  And it costs money to skill up in tradeskills.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>How much does it hurt to put off purchasing the higher level combat abilities when the ones you are primarilly using seem to be doing pretty well?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Ulric</DIV>

<DIV>Check this thread for crusader/paladin suggestions:</DIV> <DIV><A href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=10&message.id=670" target=_blank>http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=10&message.id=670</A></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Something else to sift thru:</DIV> <DIV><A href="http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=spellart&message.id=11075" target=_blank>http://eqiiforums.station.sony.com/eq2/board/message?board.id=spellart&message.id=11075</A></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>A skills color con is like the color con for armor stats, </DIV> <DIV>An orange con piece of armor's stats will get better over time, white con'd armor being the "best" maximum for that piece of armor.....skills/spells work the same way</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>when a skill gets green, it'll be replaced soon with it's upgrade (like Charge for Kick).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Upgrading from apprentice 1 only improves the skill's strength (by increasing dmg/pwr used/healed amount, etc.), but doesnt change the color con.</DIV>
