Sorry if this is in the wrong place, not sure if this is Drow related, Favored Soul related or what so I posted it here.

I made a Drow favored soul and I bought vet status so I'm lv 4. I have the natural short sword affinity(or whatever you call it) with Drow, I have enough Dex for duel wield so I have that feat, I also have the FvS's 2 feats for short swords. I have the starter sh. sw. I was given once I got to Stormreach and I can use it, but when I try to buy some sh. swords in the DDO store I cant buy any?

Yes, I'm trying to buy level appropriate stuff but it's not even listed. When I click the show all thingy in the store, almost all swords are red and it says my character cant buy them. I'm logged into my character, standing in the bank or "around town", anywhere. It wont let me buy any gear for this new toon.

And I have TONS of TB Points so it's not that either.

What is keeping me from being able to buy level appropriate sh. swords for my new toon? I never had this problem on my "main" level 8 human paly. Right from the get go I could buy whatever I had the TB points for, and was level appropriate.

Hello, nobody should buy weapons from the DDO store. Just ask a player to give you those weapons instead.

that or buy the sharn syndicate pack and you can get some nice lowbie BTA acid short swords as end rewards for the chain, plus some xp too:D

Never buy weapons from the Turbine store. Ever. They are a bad deal in nearly every case. Check out the weapons vendor in the Marketplace, near the entrance. He will sell level 2 min weapons, and frequently folks will sell their excess short swords there.

In House Denith (House D) there is a vendor that sells level 4/6/8+ items. Check that out as well. It is much better to use Plat to get your shortswords (or, also as mentioned, ask other players for their extra short swords, or offer to buy them first if they are not going to use it).

What server are you on, and what's the name of the character?

I would rather give them to you or buy them for you. Do not buy weapons from the store.

If you are on Argo, give me your name.

what they have said, and

a purpose of a main is to trickle down better gear via mail or shared bank if you have access.

in 2 month of play noting a lvl 8 toon for a high you should have looted some gear/plat to pass down.

try to stay away from the store for things that realatively easy to get.

obligatory repeat of main response: do not buy weapons from DDO store.

other places you can get weapons are the auction house and the pawn shop in house D. people often dump their lower level stuff there so you can get a good selection.

^^This. Never, ever buy weapons from the DDO store.

You can get this (http://ddowiki.com/page/Nicked_Shortsword) from the Sharn Syndicate quest as was stated.

Give your server and character name.

I'm on Ghallanda and would gladly send you a level four short sword much better then one from the DDO store.

There are many useful things worth buying from the DDO store.
Weapons and armor are not one of them.

Cannith server
XinguKahn is my Drow FvS
Juhndohm is my Human Paly
Xikoth is my Drow Sorc.

I bought a few of the $50 - 6900TB Point packages when they had that double rewards a few weeks ago, Also bought quite a few 750TB Point cards at Target prior to this, basically bought everything I could for my account, all adv. packs, bank stuff, classes and races. Didn't buy more char. slots since I just started and playing 2-3 toons at a time is how I usually play an MMO.....

I've been buying basic +1-2-3-4 armor/shields/swords from the Store mostly because I still have quite a bit of TB points on my account. After the unanimous consensus of DONT BUY WEAPONS FROM THE STORE!!, I think I'll stick to spending my points on a +2 sup scroll or something and send some ingame money from my main to my alts..

Thanks a million for the very quick replies! I'll learn this damn game one day:) Been a WoW player for years but DDO sure isn't WoW.....it's quite better actually, although VERY detailed and indepth then what I'm used to.

Buy tomes or xp pots if you have spare ddo points, much better than weapons.

Stray musing.
This is why having a fat TP reserve can be bad for your shopping habits.
You are lured into thinking you have more to spare, so a small purchase won't be a dent much.

...

Been there, done that.
I can't really advise against doing it - Turbine is a business, not charity after all.
But there are better ways to spend your TP and get the gear you need; they usually require some plat and time to run quests.

I would wholeheartedly suggest a visit to the ddowiki for insight.
There you can learn what kind of gear you need, what kind of threats you should ward yourself against, and what kind of weapon works well in a given quest.
