Yeah. My IGN is Darkstar.
Grinding really hits like a brick wall when you hit level 7 or so. It was painfully boring, killing Baby Dragons (since everyone else was grouping up on the Golem, there was no chance of me killing it quickly.). I got to level 10 though, and am off that stupid island. Not much, in terms of equips. Just a Sprite Greatsword and some armor.
