Hello all! I just found this game a few days ago and am very happy so far. I am new to here but not to MMORPGs, but I haven't found a game I enjoy this much out of the gate in awhile.

Ok so on to the questions. If I wanted to spend a few bucks is the monthly subscription the way to go? On the surface it seems to be, I just wished it came with a few crowns a month so you could save up for storage upgrades and such, but still it seems to be cheap enough even without any crowns.

I went ahead and bought the starter packs...or upgrades I think they are called for 2 characters. Does the XP boost from these stack with the monthly, and does the XP boost from pies stack with these too?

Thanks in advance! Now I just gotta figure out if I like my Hunter or warrior more! Of course that's a question I have to figure out for myself :)
Thanks for reading.

I have had AS membership since it was first introduced, so yes I would say it is certainly worthwhile, though as you say, storage is probably the main thing you are likely to want, and you will probably find yourself choosing to buy storage as well. Note that the new player calendar gives you a bag (on day 13) and a vault (on day 20, or maybe 27). The gathering tools starter pack (The Reaper's pack) also includes an extra bag. This is the best item in the shop in my view (besides storage). The Hero starter pack also includes a bag, and the homeowner's pack a vault.

xp boosts stack so long as they are different, so yes a pie will stack with the boost from the deluxe upgrade (which I think is what you mean by the starter pack). I am not sure exactly what you mean by the monthly boost, but if you mean a potion from the calendar I think that would not stack (since it is in fact a shorter version of the boost from the deluxe upgrade) but you would be able to activate it after the deluxe one runs out.

Thanks. Yes the deluxe upgrade was what I was referring to. The monthly XP boost I was referring to is the one that come with the AS subscription. Err at least I think it comes with an XP boost. I am not in game ATM so may be remembering incorrectly.

Thanks a ton for the advice though. I will definitely be looking into the reaper pack!

In that case, yes, the AS xp boost does stack with the deluxe upgrade one (which is in fact a potion).

I am a fairly new player also as I started about 3 months ago. I subscribed to Ardent Society and LOVE it! The free teleports, the extra shared vault, and the XP boost are some of my most favorite benefits. At less than $10 US per month, extremely cheap and adds to my enjoyment greatly. I do recommend Ardent Society!

Thanks for the advice guys! I have decided to go for the AS.
Now to decide on warrior or Hunter! Lol I am always torn between 2 classes it seems :) Is it hard to find dungeons and groups as a Hunter later on? Some games are hard to find groups as anything but healer or tank.

Glad you are getting Ardent Society! I’ve happily had it for about two years.

There isn’t really a limit to the size of an overall group (though it might need to be split into multiple parties), so I can’t imagine you would ever be turned away from a run. And it is possible for hunters to tank.

Ok cool, thanks. I have now got my Hunter and warrior through all of the quests in Summer's Hollow and onto the castle. I'll choose one soon enough I guess lol.

Working on trying to recruit a few people I used to play EQ and LOTRO with now. :)

Perhaps you could keep both? :) I think playing multiple characters helps to keep things fresh and reduces chance of burnout.

Oh I will definitely play both...and probably a mage and priest eventually lol. I am an alcoholic!
I am not sure what being an alcoholic has to do with playing multiple chars, maybe because you see double anyway? :p
Do you mean Gameholic?

You’re not an altaholic if all your characters are main characters (you love them equally).

I went with my Fury Warrior as my main from my hunter is second, just unfortunately right now it's Marksman at level 70 that can barely take on mobs in the 66-67 pyrron range....buuuttt....my Warrior is doing great.

I play a marksman hunter as my main and she can take on pretty much everything of her level and a bit above. Are you sure your build is allright?

I built up my blasting, when the group gets around you they will lose hp when they trigger it. Them throw concussion amd splinter over them and either they are dead or far enough down to be quickly picked out with single shots one by one
