Are clans necessary? I know you can finish the game without them, but am I missing things by not joining a clan? I'm fairly new to the game, a level 15 Turtle Tamer and a level 14 Disco Bandit, and haven't ever ascended, if that helps your decision.
On a completely different note, does anyone else use Firefox with KOL? It won't work at all for me, and hasn't for about a week. I've had to go back to Internet Explorer. ETA: It's not just white-screening me anymore, but now it acts as though I've double-clicked when I haven't. When I use something, it tells me I don't have the item. The effect for whatever items still happen. And this doesn't happen in Internet Explorer. ETA2: Crisis averted! The moral of the story is to get the latest version. *facepalm*
Hopefully the last ETA: Thank you everyone! I have finally decided to join up, and now I just have to figure out where.
