nycteris_a: Aard Items?

Hi, I just noticed this community! My name on Aard is "Nycteris" (My name basically everywhere online is Nycteris, go figure.)

I am a struggling Level 50 Elf Mage, and wondering which Aard item I should get first? Lots of people told me to get the Aura, but lots of other people said not to bother with it unless you can get it at level 1.
Since I'm not a remort (I'm a genuine n00b) I can't do that.

Suggestions? The Amulet looks good too.

Anyway I'm sick of sitting on this level trying to get 2500qp :)

Loving Aardwolf, and everyone I've met is terribly friendly!

I wouldn't get the aura, personally. A person's first aarditem that they get is usually a lev 80 weapon. Damage at lev 80 increases, the resell value is a bit higher (usually rauc for 700-800 or so). Buying an aura now would be a bad choice, can't use it next mort without adding a keepflag.

Weapons, definitely. People on Aardwolf are strange and finicky, and won't pay crap during rauction unless your item is one of the "right" levels. Level 80 aardweapons are really nice, as the damage goes up considerably.

I didn't buy an aura until my second mort. I just bought weapons (and a manor. heh). At low levels, I relied on sanctuary potions from the apothecary, and once I joined Daoine, I used the daoine protection potion. *shrug*

So yes, go for weapons.

I followed a similar plan, except mine went: sanctuary potions from the apothecary, and once I joined Daoine I made Sunset drag me around and give me free levels.

Also it's a well known fact that Daoine potions are like 80% crack anyway, so really you only thought they were working.

Weapons, definitely. And buy all the other stuff at level 1, people were right about that one :)
