Welcome to the family! I recommend trying TD at some of the other Cons. Easier to get into runs, less expensive, and more time to get to know your fellow players. Gamehole Con in Madision, Wisconsin is coming up in a few short months.

I'm going to echo sentiments to check out people's trades and stores posted here as well as the individual class sections of the forums. In particular I'd recommend this thread, as I feel Endgame has done a great job of going over a good token starting path for rogues:

I really need to update that thread to be more in line with my other starter threads :D I'll see what I can do about that over the next couple of days

Welcome!

Personally, I can’t recommend Trenttokens.com enough - his selection is awesome (both singles and full start builds), his rewards program is fantastic, and he’s just an amazing person to deal with. Super friendly and honest, and always has great recommendations!

If you pulled any monster bits (or this year's relic recipe fragments) or GP from the treasure box, you can often trade those to veteran players for useful rares to help your build. Until you decide to get into the transmuting game yourself, of course.

Monster bits are great currency for beginning players. They’re not junk, so don’t believe anyone who tells you that.

Especially this year. 2019 Monster bits/trophies and relic recipe fragments (if you were fortunate enough to get any) should be able to get you at least a number of rares each.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

Very much this! One 2019 bit should be able to land you multiple (5+) of the current year rares.

I believe I do have a couple monster bits, so I'll take a look when I get home! I know when I pulled one out with my treasure draws the TD volunteer was like "hey that's a good pull" so I made sure to set it aside. I'll figure out which ones we got and see what I can do with them. Also good to know about trent -- I was kind of peaking at that site over lunch and saw a few things.

Jonathan W wrote: @Marcques Domask - That's good. I kind of took a similar stance on magic the gathering so good to know that applies here too. Also going to have to look into transmuting and see what I can find out about it. I've got quite a few spare things I won't be using. I did go in with a couple of people so I'll have to see what they think about going in on an auction. Thanks for the tips!


Happy the tips were good!!

I just started getting into transmutes this year, and I have to comment: Your spare things won't go as far as you might think they could. The recipes seem balanced against people who acquire trade goods through the $8k auctions. Especially for the 3* transmutes, it seems like you're better off paying the $10-15 from a second-hand vendor. Just my perspective as someone who recently plunged into transmutes.

Also, glad to hear that the volunteers for treasure boxes said "good pulls!" consistently. They did that to our groups too, so good to know it was effective and you set them aside!

Most rares are typically valued about the same. There are some outliers. When I price tokens I look at Trent Tokens, TD Tavern and some of the bigger stores on the forum and offer at lower prices in almost all cases.

Welcome to a great game!

I would mention that, particularly when it comes to the lower levels, but honestly for all, I would recommend buying directly, until you have so much excess that you end up with that you want to try the transmutation route.

Every token is less than the sum of its parts while it is able to be transmuted. There are a few different ways to build a rogue (melee or ranged). Having focus is generally better than trying to be a jack of all trades.

Take a look at next year's tokens as well. They will be available for pre-order this year, and you might like what you see.

A token that gets you 5th level is a huge benefit for a rogue. At least in my mind.

I would also mention that many of us can't help ourselves from trading against our own interests with the newest players. If you arrange a trade on here, you might just find more than you were expecting when the package arrives.

Here's hoping you can make a different con as well. There is generally a more relaxed feel there.

Finally, volunteering can be a great way to get yourself some more tokens!
