I agree with red_chick, when you first set up your EC, use temps for everything except grooms (they are easy to get). This really helps. As does looking after it everyday.
Also, try to spend passes on getting bigger boxes for your center, as they are very good value.
_________________(sword naming ceremony)Eragon:
Well, what if I named it Hope in the ancient Language? Zar'roc means "misery", so wouldn't it be fitting if I were to wield a sword that by it's very name would counteract misery?Saphira:
A noble Sentiment. But do you really want togive your enemies hope? Do you want to stab Gallbatorix with hope?Eragon:
It's an amusing pun.
