Instead of making another thread maybe I should just post it here. I'm starting brand new too. I just made it to the (first?) boss in the Archstone of the Burrower King. If anyone wants to answer questions I'd be happy to hear answers!
How do you tell how much a weapon, shield, armor etc needs of which stat? I've found lots of stuff but can't really use any of it. I've been focusing on Endurance / Vitality to start, will work on str and dex next.
Is there any point in keeping older junk you find? I haven't found a single place to sell crap.
