There is no trade limitation so if you have a buddy that wants to help you out he can. Combat-wise, I suggest becoming 40 in most melee + range for a start before you get membership. 1. Is moving money from a friend's account against the principles? 2. How should I go about training melee and array? Currently I am using iron arrows on cows in lumby using safespots. No it is not, they eliminated the trade limitation, it's the same as before.
I propose training on edgeville guys with melee untill you get a sling, it's just like a slingshot with infinite ammo, get increased defence first so you can train at better places (cockroaches, spiders etc) Uhh I understand what a sling is, you can get it out of cows too. 2nd cow kill got a twist, 1st kill is an air personnel. And questing can be a problem, I SUCK at questing. I have no idea that quests to perform, and if they are really long, I get tired really easily. So essentially questing for complete rune armor and melee training are my only issues.
