    On a regular base fellow adventurers ask me, what they should go for first, when it comes to enhancing / buying PEN. I figured it might be helpful to create a poll, to give those people an idea not only what to go for first, but also why. Please write a short comment explaining your decision.

    Armor, Purely for the new Dead God armor. But it is much better to get either your mainhand or awakening to pen.

    My first PEN item ever was... Grunil Gloves, and that was like ages ago, just a few months after Grunil had been introduced. At that time PENs were just an extremely rare curiosity, granted green-grade items were slightly more common, nevertheless still only seldom created / sold. Well, it was just around 500 mil back then (still quite a bit of silver), it was just there in the Market so I bought it, for the hell of it.

    My first "serious" PEN piece was my Kzarka Longsword, again quite a while ago, still not common at all, that one went for around 10 Bil silver, which still looks dead cheap compared to current prices. Still using the weapon of course, slowly working the Caphras (long) way up to 20...

    A few more PENs have followed, all bought from the Market, my philosophy is totally against this ridiculous RNG gambling that plagues this game (and many others), so yeah I avoid it like... the plague. I work my hours, collect my silver, I buy stuff, when and if I can afford, simple as that, peace of mind. In any case, PENs are not such a big deal any more, are they, virtually produced by the 1000s, except the "new grade" stuff (aka Blackstar and beyond), which is just a HUGE trap, well for those who understand...

    Bhegs, gives the biggest advantage. Dead god is not a priority for your "first" PEN

    I did my awken wep since I was not doing pen bs wep no way not until I got everything done
    From the math I did it was something like this chest helm or boots follow after what I did then gloves then kutum since these two gove the least amount of stats per attempt for pen
    But it also goes on what u get in that time. Anything can go pen but in theory once u got a few pen armors the down grades wouldn't effect much anyway
    But I also rushed lvl 10 dim tree at the time cuz I knew dead God was going to effected the market pretty badly. With everyone waiting for dead God to hit and saving their cap stones
    The odds of getting cap stones can still be high but once ppl start to realize how important cap stones r there's a high chance ppl will never sell below 3m per stone or sell any at all
    Not to mention all the new players who also been getting cuz they need stones to lol

    Everyone who's not lvl 10 yet will suffer and will have no choice to go bs armors odds are

    Pen Capotia.
    Iv done 2 PEN attempts a week for almost 2 years now, not a single PEN item..couldn't even get a PEN winter ring, or Tuvala gear.
    Iv got an alt with 180FS, that hasn't seen an enhancement success going on 2 years now.

    It just boils down to the numbers. Statistically some accounts just require more then 220 attempts to achieve a PEN. Thus paywalling them from the content. Because they may never play long enough to be able to do that many attempts without costume melting.

    Okay..
    actually my first pen was a yuria helmet, trying to do fs, then when i was bored and tired of the game i made a pen roulette and the main weapon got lucky, with 240fs approximately, i didn't care, the intention was to play the casino .. Moral (roulettes are bad)

    1st - Dande
    2nd - Offin Tett (which I recently made the hard decision to sell as I re-rolled)
    3rd - Manos fisher clothes
    4th - Tet Blackstar (I like to think of this as a pen)
    5th - Laytenn power stone
    6th - Terrmian earring (because c'mon 5% chance!)
    7th - I bought my very first pen which was a kutum hehe

    I did dande first because it was the main weapon I used, if I played succ I would go for the mainhand first. I continued down the path of doing my weapons as I wanted full pen weapons as a personal goal. I could have gotten much more benefit out of the 16.6 bil I spent on the kutum but considering I sold my offin for it, I was only going to trade for another pen weapon.

    Thank you to Cocohaydz for selling me the kutum for nearly base price as well. <3

    Go for weapons first if you can control it.
