  • Higher tiers can sometimes buy your 'weird level' items. For example, a tier 9 can use level 91 gear at level 1. If you have a level 47 Amulet of Aardwolf, they might want to buy it, and sell their level 1 piece. If you're planning to resell such items, its a good idea to post a note on the forsale board, and wait for prebids. In any case, you WILL lose quest points by selling such an item, unlike if it was an item of a preferable level. But some tier players don't mind getting those pieces, and will resell their own gear for more, so it benefits them, and you will loose less quest points than by just randomly rauctioning such pieces.

The best level to start with weapons. Before level 80, the average damage of Aard weapons is 2.5*level, it becomes 3*level at level 80. Remember that Axes and Daggers are the most used weapons, for the Dagger can be used dually when using the Axe as the primary weapon, and both get a bonus for backstab. A level 80 Dagger is probably your best pick, since the weapon can easily become a dual later if you buy an Axe (See level 120)

Other thoughts about Aard gear

Bags of Aardwolf are a huge help in storing items. The items put into those bags get their weight lowered by 80%, and the bag has almost no limits in terms of items. The negative weight modifier on the bag itself makes those very useful if you have weight issues, and each bag will benefit you more.

Your goal with weapons will probably be two weapons every 10 levels, start with 1 weapon every 40 levels, then complete to get one every 20, then a second weapon for every 40 levels, then get a second weapon every 20s, etc.

The higher your tier will be, the more you'll be in need of DR/HR and less stats (since you can use level lots earlier, stats become less an issue), so you'll get into buying more bracers/gloves at higher levels.

Higher tiers /can/ sometimes buy your 'weird levels' items. For example, a tier 9 can use level 91 gear at level 1. If you have a level 47 Amulet of Aardwolf, they might want to buy those, and sell their level 1 piece. If you're planning to resell such items, better post a note on forsale, and wait for prebids. In any case, you WILL lose quest points by selling such an item, unlike if it was an item with the adequate level. But some tier players don't mind getting those pieces, and will resell their own gear for more, so it's benefits for them, and you will loose less quest points than by just randomly rauctionning such pieces.

The best level to start with weapons. Before level 80, the average damage of Aard weapons is 2.5*level, it becomes 3*level at level 80. Remember that Axes and Daggers are the most used weapons, for the Dagger can be used dually when using the Axe as the primary weapon, and both get a bonus for backstab. A level 80 Dagger is probably your best pick, since the weapon can easily become a dual later if you buy an Axe (See level 120)

The stats push on the Breastplate makes this a really good pick at level 100. Usually, low tiers will prefer using stats gear for hands/arms at level 100, instead of the Aard Gloves and Bracers (Unless you don't have dual wield skill, then the Gloves stay the best pick).

It's even more critical to buy those items at level 1. Getting those items at a level other than level 1 will be a problem for you, since you won't be able to use them immediately after a remort.

Higher tiers /can/ buy sometimes your 'weird levels' items. For example, a tier 9 can use level 91 gear at level 1. If you have a level 47 Amulet of Aardwolf, they might want to buy those, and sell their level 1 piece. If you're planning to resell such items, better post a note on forsale, and wait for prebids. In any case, you WILL lose quest points by selling such an item, unlike if it was an item with the adequate level.

What level should I buy my Aard items at ?

This is a very common question, and also something really critical for the future of your character. Buying Aard items at wrong levels will lower a lot the resale value of your item, and will also often decrease the range of levels you can use them at.

- Items that get stat bonuses based on the level you buy them at : Aura of Sanctuary, Gloves of Dexterity, Breastplate of Magic Resistance, Bracers of Iron Grip, Shield of Aardwolf, Weapons, Rings of Regeneration It's really critical to choose wisely at which level you buy those pieces, for example : A level 29 Ring of Regeneration has exactly the same stats as a level 1 one. A level 30 Ring of Regeneration will have more stats than the level 29 one !

- Items that get no stat bonuses based on the level : Helm of True Sight, Boots of Speed, Wings of Aardwolf, Amulet of Aardwolf, Ring of Invisibility It's even more critical to buy those items at level 1. Getting those items at other than level 1 will be a problem for you, since you won't be able to use them immediately after a remort, for example. For example, if you buy an Aard Amulet at level 75, when you remort, you won't be able to use the item from level 1 to 74. Rauction of such items usually means a really big loss of quest points.

Recommended levels to buy each item at

Aura of Sanctuary, Gloves of Dexterity, Breastplate of Magic Resistance, Bracers of Iron Grip, Shield of Aardwolf : level 1, 50, 100, 150, 200-201, 251, 291

Weapons : level 1, and every multiple of 10 (10, 20, 30, etc.), and at every tier level

Helm of True Sight, Boots of Speed, Wings of Aardwolf, Amulet of Aardwolf, Ring of Invisibility : level 1

Rings of Regeneration : level 1, 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180

Best levels to buy items

There is of course a list of items that are considered as 'best levels'. This list is also a matter of personal choices, and in no way the unique way to buy Aard equipment.

Level 1 : The best items to get at level 1 are Aura of Sanctuary, Gloves of Dexterity, Breastplate of Magic Resistance, Bracers of Iron Grip, Helm of True Sight, Boots of Speed, Wings of Aardwolf, Amulet of Aardwolf, Ring of Invisibility, Ring of Regeneration

Level 80 : The best level to start with weapons. Before level 80, the average damage of Aard weapons is 2.5*level, it becomes 3*level at level 80. Remember that Axes and Daggers are the most used weapons, for the Dagger can be dualled when using the Axe, and both get a bonus for backstab. A level 80 Dagger is probably your best pick, since the weapon can easily become a dual later if you buy an Axe (See level 120)

Level 100 : The stats push on the Breastplate and the Aura of Sanctuary make those really good picks at level 100. Usually, low tiers will prefer using stats gear for hands/arms at level 100, instead of the Aard Gloves and Bracers (Unless you don't have dual wield skill, then the Gloves stay the best pick).

Level 120 : A new weapon will help greatly in the higher levels. I would recommend getting a level 120 Axe, so you can dual a Dagger.

Level 150 : With the increasing needs of stats, getting level 150 Breastplate and Aura of Sanctuary is a good idea !

Level 160 and higher : A new weapon at level 160 is good to have. If you can afford, buy even two, an Axe and a Dagger.

Other thoughts about Aard gear

Bags of Aardwolf are a huge help in storing items. The items put into those bags get their weight lowered by 90%, and the bag has almost no limits in terms of items. The negative weight modifier on the bag itself makes those very interesting if you have weight issues, buying more than one can be a great help too.

Your goal with weapons will probably be two weapons every 10 levels, start with 1 weapon every 40 levels, then complete to get one every 20, then a second weapon for every 40 levels, then get a second weapon every 20s, etc.

The higher your tier will be, the more you'll be in need of DR/HR and less stats (since you can use level lots earlier, stats become less an issue), so you'll get into buying more bracers/gloves at higher levels.

People sitting at SH will also often get some weird stuff, but that's an other topic !

Higher tiers /can/ buy sometimes your 'weird levels' items. For example, a tier 9 can use level 91 gear at level 1. If you have a level 47 Amulet of Aardwolf, they might want to buy those, and sell their level 1 piece. If you're planning to resell such items, better post a note on forsale, and wait for prebids. In any case, you WILL lose quest points by selling such an item, unlike if it was an item with the adequate level. But some tier players don't mind getting those pieces, and will resell their own gear for more, so it's benefits for them, and you will loose less quest points than by just randomly rauctionning such pieces.
