    Try this, I have no idea if it will work or not, but hey, worth a try. Before the fight starts go into hide. Wait for NPC to take aggro, wait a bit longer and talk to him to see if it triggered the port out. Also, you have skill .escape' , try that if hide does not work, or, if you do need to actually hit them to trigger NPC.

    It should not be that hard. Specially since you are levels above them. Double check your gear, make sure it is all repaired, and that you have your correct gear on. You may also try talking to the NPC, I forget exactly when he transports you out, but i do know you do not have to finish the fight.

    No, I wouldn't say difficult to play ... it's just that you will need two different sets of gear, and stats.

    In this dual-class system, you switch primary and secondary classes at the housemaid. Secondary class will always be same or lower than your Primary. For example, let's say you leveled your Mage to 15 then chose Scout as Secondary. It would show as M/S 15/1, that's a level 15 mage with a level 1 scout secondary. You now go to housemaid and switch to Scout Primary...boom, you are a S/M 1/1; level 1 Scout with level 1 Mage secondary. As you level your scout, the mage follows ... 2/2, then 3/3, then 4/4 etc until your scout exceeds your mage level then it would show as S/M 16/15, 17/15, and so on. Now you can switch back to Mage Primary and be a M/S 15/15. As a general rule of thumb ... I like to keep the classes within 5 levels of each other, just makes it easier for me in questing, same zone etc. Others do it differently, w/e. You can also do quests on your higher level and switch to turn them in on lower level as long as the quest is within 10 levels, i.e. you can turn in a level 30 quest on a level 20 class, but you cannot pick up the quest until your higher class level is within 2 levels of the quest. In this example, a level 28/20 could pick up a level 30 quest on their 28 side, complete it and turn in on their 20 side.

    yes, Dwarves are kind of "odd". From your further explanation I think you would be better off with Scout as Primary. Secondary class, well it's up to you. The Cheaper route would be Scout/Rogue as they can wear the same gear. Then Scout/Warden as an Elf as a good second choice. I'd stay away from Scout/Mage until you are comfortable as a scout.

    Yes, getting mobbed by several monsters at once is the quickest way to die. Sometimes the run through them till they stop following is a way to go if you're in a hurry, but it is also a risky move, specially if you don't know for sure where you are headed to. Many times it is best to just kill whatever's near and slowly move forward. If monsters are re-spawning before you kill the next one it is a sign that you are not killing fast enough. You either need to get a better weapon, or level up.

    Well, your link is that guys opinion, could use as a guideline, but there are some obvious mistakes in it. In general, he gets it mostly correct. It also depends on how the party is set up, with buffs and debuffs moving classes around on that list.

    Most raids are set up for Physical DPS, so Magical DPS generally suffers.

    For straight out healing the Druid/Warden is still tops. Though Druid/Scout has some good stuff to offer.

    You didn't say why you liked casters, but you might consider a Scout if it is because you like ranged attacks, or, and this is going to seem odd, a Champion, slower than your typical caster, but tougher, and it's skills are very similar to those you would expect from a "caster".

    The actual subject is much more complex, I normally advise people to try various classes before spending any money on one.

    Unfortunately, Govinda is long gone. There have been two server merges since Govinda was a stand alone server and we are all now one server, Aeterna. Supposedly, all active accounts were sent an email prior to the merges, and you were supposed to heave logged in at some time in order to avoid account deletion. You could try contacting support about your old account, you will need all the relevant information, but prospects are probably not good. Also, support is a separate entity from the game and you will need to open an account with support.

    The xp ratio is a complete joke, 1/100th xp rate makes getting to peak 5 take 70 billion normal xp. Lets say you used daily resets to get there, the most common repeatable daily is bottles daily in balu village. Balu village gives 63516 peak xp. The highest you can buff that outside of event if you got wishing well buff, hall of earth buff, zodiac, and two quest potions is 170% which would give you 171493 peak xp. The amount of peak xp needed to get to peak 5 is 700207338. 700207338/171493 is 4084 daily resets to reach peak 5 or 142940 diamonds. that many diamonds is 3400 USD.

    Does the game expect us to literally NO life the game grinding xp or spend 3400 dollars to continue to be end game? please tell me there is a mistake in my math because LITERALLY no one will do

    Since I'm lazy, how many just regular days of dailies is that, if you do the dailys in the new zone? I'm gonna use new math and say that is roughly 3 yrs of dailies?

    IIRC, the skill anti-magic arrow ignores walls etc. and the Warden can kill you from outside castle if he can target you. Super Cheezy, but it's not the only class or skill that does that

    I find that Character detail and view distance are the two settings that affect crashing the most. You can put Character detail on lowest setting and still play, game is just uglier. But View distance.. well you can't really play with it set on lowest so move it around to see what works best for you. I have mine just above halfway. All the other settings can be on lowest with no noticeable affect on play.

    Also, pause for a while after every transport. Consider re-logging before anything important.

    Also, get a memory manager program, preferably one that automatically cleans every few seconds.

    I'd say try out the different classes to see what fits your playstyle best. Don't spend any money until you figure that out.
