Dec 11th 2007 1:42PM About the recommendation to upgrade your items so that you are constantly getting the most bang for you buck, i.e. the biggest upgrades...that's definitely what I recommend for hard core players who are aiming to climb the ranks quickly. However, for most players, who are simply looking to have a good time, try this approach. Buy the cheapest available upgrades as quickly as you can. What this does is make the process more fun, even though you may end up needing more points in the end because you upgrade something twice. For example, you may want the S3 arena chest armor, but that's a ton of arena points which are hard to get quickly. Instead, farm honor points and buy the S1 arena chest. Once you have that S1 chest you'll find that farming arena points is easier and more fun because you have the resilience that you need to compete. In the end you buy two arena chest pieces instead of just one, but hey, that's how the more seasoned players did it in the first place.
