Dear Friendly,Dear Destiny Dragonrider,
I am leveling my first wizard - a pyromancer. I am in Dragonspyre, and have completed all other worlds before, but am only level thirty-nine. Some people have told me that I'm too low-level to be in Dragonspyre. I'm worried that I won't have enough health or levels to get spells and do things at the same time as other players. Should I go back to the other worlds and do side quests or re-do things to get experience, should I keep going, or do something else?
You're awesome, don't worry about it. Seriously, I mean it. You're not the first to be in Dragonspyre at such a low level and you certainly won't be the last. Can you hold your own there? Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can hold your own. It does get tougher though. The towers get out of control, the mobs all cast weakness, and most of them shield. Heck I've even had appropriate level Pyromancers asking me for advice when leveling through towers.
But, here's something else for you to think about . . . you're probably going to get stuck on a few things.
1- The obsidian chest quest in the final world has you revisiting all the worlds to gather your obsidian chests. You will probably have to complete a few of these side quests to get in to a couple of these. (Mossback quest is one of these side quests . . . of course, you could always have one of your friends that's done these allow you to port into them so you can get the chest.)
2- You want to be level 50 for when Celestia comes out, so you might as well start thinking about leveling up to that now by doing all your side quests. Otherwise, you might end the game in your low 40's and then have to do a lot of backtracking. (which isn't so bad, since when you backtrack your quests you're more powerful and they're easier to do then.)
3- I always am looking forward to my level 48 spells when I level a character. Attaining my last spell always feels more like my real goal than defeating Malistaire for some reason. I think this is why I have a couple characters at level 48 now instead of grandmaster. (I NEED TO LEVEL THEM!) I hadn't really thought about this before leveling with Bailey, but she really wanted her level 48 spell before fighting the final things in Dragonspyre so she could experience the game while casting the big spells, you know? (Uber wife is awesome like that.)
Now, with that all in mind, I can't stress enough that you should just play the game how you want to play, and if you're playing it with friends by your side, then you have no worries at all. (unless they're hassling you.) Just have fun doing what you're doing, and as long as you aren't doing weird stuff like blowing people's traps with fire elf and getting yourself killed, then you're perfectly fine.
Now, socially, I think people are under the impression that you have to have your level 42 spell to survive. I don't know about that. A bladed up scald back to back with a choke and a good heal can be as impressive to watch as a helephant. Phoenix ain't such a bad spell either. Your biggest problem will probably be when you run into fire school baddies as a few rounds of laying down converts can sometimes be a painful experience.
Basically, have a good strategy.
Of course, my readers may be of a different opinion. Let Destiny know what you think!
Best of luck!
