(guide) Missable items

For my fellow OCD perfectionist not-wanting-to-permanently-miss-anything people.
For each dungeon the most important items are on top of the list.
Most items have better versions of it at higher levels. However the items labeled “(important)” have no better version, and can only be gotten in that dungeon (or could be gotten elsewhere, but would be a very difficult).

----Beginning----

Wrong account

Be careful on what account you make your character, because you cannot buff your alt, if the “buffer” and the “buffee” are on the same account, or kill a boss for your alt etc.

Wrong Breed

Most professions work well with a variety of breeds, However for certain specific builds, one particular breed is simply the best meta. It can be because of breed-specific items. Those few points of a certain skill that a very powerful item/nano requires. Higher abilities for certain imps. Having enough max nano, so the boss/mobs die just before you run out of nano. Having enough health to survive a big hit/series of hits. Being female so medusas won’t attack you on sight, which helps if you farm alot near medusas.

Wrong side

If your character build requires neutral-only items, and you already went clan/omni then tough luck. You can buy use a premium application form, but those are very expensive, so keep that in mind. Agents are an exception, they can use an “Undercover kit” item to switch sides, clan/omni and even to neutral, without losing side tokens. See ((guide)(froob) Mission sliders guide -in progress-) on how to roll one.

Very useful info, thanks :blush:

However maybe it would be a little clearer if the items were linked to aoitems and the -----'s removed? It takes some effort to read as is, especially on screens that aren’t as wide (e.g. my phone :wink: ).

The <pre> in the beginning of article and </pre> at the end, seems to make the spacebars actually create "space* thanks for the tip.
