    So here is the fairly tight list of gear upgrades to consider while you level up. It will get you 90% of the best options for minimal use of coins and your time/energy. There are more options than this in the game, especially if you've got lots of coin and like to craft all recipes, but if you want to do a quick check of what are good upgrades around your level, without much thinking or research, then this list will cover your needs and get you to level 40 very efficiently.

    I've a couple of suggestions for devs on some gears that could be added that would be great for new players while levelling, that are high impact but don't have an accessible option currently.


    Reinforced Construction with line of sight for watchpost, none easily accessible, all rare drops
    • Suggestion, increase LOS on Argos Reinforced Walls, from 3.1% LOS to 30% LOS, that’s still well below the LOS on the two drops Hand-Carved Wall Braces (42.8-49.7% LOS) and Walls of master defender (53.8-59.4%)

    Scout special - no LOS easily accessible, all rare drops
    • Add a green lvl 10 one in a shop with 19% LOS stat. That still less than the blue Looking Glass drops that starts with 19.2% at the lowest at lvl 7, up to 52.3% as best lvl 27.
    Map visibility is a huge gameplay impact, and currently players go from almost no increases to very large increases when they get lots of coin at lvl 40, an incremental step while levelling would be a helpful quality of life/gameplay improvement to players and indicative of what endgame looks like in practice.

    Advisors
    Some accessible but others a bit random. There are some in Crete, Lodi, Well of Urd and other locations but are not accessible at ideal levels. An accessible selection of white/green advisors, good basic options for age 1-4, as fallback choices for players that don't get lucky drops.

    I'm going to try to keep some items on the marketplace for new players. Items that are good for new players while levelling that are easy to access for lvl 40 players but hard for new players. Such as green advisors from stores that new players can't travel to, and some core crafted items.
    Selling for basically cost price + listing price/%

    Chieftain Britomartus - Uncommon - 300c - Lodi [345 sell price]
    King Nannus - Uncommon -300c - Lodi [345 sell price]

    Cowardly Colonel Pamphilos - Uncommon - 375c - Argos [435 sell price]
    Councilman Onesiphoros - Uncommon - 375c - Argos [435 sell price]
    Bow Master Sohrab - Uncommon - 1125c - Rome [1260 sell price]


    Jewelled Staff
    22 olive oil - 44c
    14 oak planks - 24c
    12 scrolls of lore - 36
    -> 104c [140c sell price]

    Magnificent Worker Tools - Don't have recipe yet, would like to buy it if anyone has it
    22 copper - 17c
    16 bronze - 32c
    8 concrete - 96
    -> 145c [180c sell price]

    Craftsman's Hammer
    22 precision tools - 792c
    12 pure gold ingots - 60
    6 illuminated codexes - 1680
