    @edvill82 Np =) hope I helped.

  • edvill82:

    @demonjack123 thanks for the great help.

  • demonjack123:

    @edvill82 Well you probably already found out by now, but in the mmo version of this game you get experience by finishing a dungeon, and you have your levels and your ranks. In order to gain another level you have to gain 5 ranks. SO to get from level 1 to level 2 you have to be level 1 Rank 5 which would automatically level you to 2.

    most i still can’t get is (i’m new, cut me a how do a player earn XP and how to get from this level to THAT level???? thanks for the help.

  • dasgregorian:

    3/3.5 all the way. No THAC0… less “complicated” rules… but still more options than this new-fangled 4.0 rubbish.

    … honestly… does ANYONE like 4.0 who’s played prior versions?

  • TheHalomrmachinima:

    I’m only 14 so I can’t play I guess or I’ve got no one to play with

  • Endlesslovekiss:

    I havent played it in a while but when i did it was a fun game you get to use ur imagination and fantasy in it. Dungeons & Dragons is a cool game to me.

  • barrenpaladin:

    1e and 2e still are the best!

  • ba11s0fsteel:

    yeah totally i find it the most fun to read and play, i guess the newer stuff can be sort of neat as well. completely different its just less imagination basically. There are alot of pros and cons about each. i prefer the ones you mentioned as i started with them.

  • newmark2020:

    There were hardcover AD&D 1ed. books as well as the hardcover 2nd ed. and subsequent editions. My favorite was 1st and 2nd edition and I use a combo of 1st and 2nd ed. rules

    Yearh.. i died painting my Uruk-hai army.. soo boring… But it’s fun playing it !

  • TheDrkKnght1988:

    Creativity is wonderful! I love Medieval fantasy!

  • ba11s0fsteel:

    just to clarify on
    teeeeeveeeee314′s comment i believe the hardcovers which came out were actually 2nd edition AD&D and not 1st edition? correct me if im wrong.
    considering they have come out with 3, 3.5 and 4 just recently, i like AD&D the best.

    i tried warhammer but it was 2 hard painting all the figures

  • teeeeeveeeee314:

    Hi Barry! Sorry, but I have second printings of the 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons hardback books: the Player’s Handbook and the Monster Manual. They came out, respectively, September, 1978 and May, 1978; not 1979. I remember getting the PH fresh when I was a freshman at West Virginia University at my local gaming store September, 1978. I can’t believe AD&D has been over 30 years now, let alone the softbounds about 32-33 years now. Boy I feel old at 48!

  • Oniusagi02:

    this is a good guide for beginners like myself… though i wish these were numbered so i knew what order to watch them in.

  • mistabluntz:

    warhammer owns D&D

  • mrwrestlingII:
