Quick question first. I'm playing as Conjurer, I have all the elemental spells available at level 1. We all get 6 points per level to increase elements, is this elemental affinity or resistances? Will stacking points into fire increase the effectiveness of fire spells I cast? Or is it just for elemental defense?
Second, you can rank up a leve by picking multiple stars for difficulty AND by trading in completed leves. If the leves show a star symbol and a number greater than 0, these increase the rewards given by the leve. I've only seen increases of 1 and 0 so far, but I imagine more are possible in the future.
Has anyone else, via combining those two methods, ranked up an equipment reward given from a leve? An example is a standard quest gives woolen slops. Has anyone experimented with ranking them up high enough to grant a higher item such as silk slops or woolen slops +1/+2?
