Here are my two main characters in Runes of Magic: Salbador and Kerrikins. Salbador is an 19th level warrior and a 7th level wizard, while Kerri is a 17th level cleric and a 7th level rogue.
I have been finding the game a refreshing change from my bland EQ II experience and look forward to becoming 60/60 with them in the months ahead.
For Salbador I have recently bought a giant chicken mount that I call, “Little Joe.” and Kerri has a white horse (no name yet).
If played correctly you really never need to buy anything, but it is sure fun to have a few diamonds to get the mount, the extra bags, or the perk in magical bonuses with items, armor, and weapons.
