Important message for newbies: Please don't be afraid to post here. Just because we were all newbies once doesn't mean we automatically remember all the things we thought were hard at first that we take for granted now because we've been subjected to it. If you think of something that would have been helpful to you that was excluded from this guide, by all means, post it here.

This guide is too long! Is there a way to sum it up?

You mean, "Is there a way to sum up a complex game with tons of aspects that takes months to master into LESS than six pages of text, colorfully illustrated and taught by genius lolis?"
Yeah, I guess there is something that can be done.

Forging is in. The cost to modify an item is 1.5x the cost of the store value of the item. You can only modify store bought items.
Recommendations:

Gambler (+MT/--Hit/+Crit) - Insight Critmasters Anything with amazing accuracy and/or Wrath, and/or +15 critical chance.
Lethal (--MT/+Hit/+Crit) - 30 pow units, wrath users Highly situational.
Reliable (+MT/+Hit/--Crit) - Everybody, especially dark/axe users
Heavy (++MT/-Hit/-Crit) - Everybody A-Rank weapons only
Sharp (-MT/-Hit/++Crit) - Light/Swords, Critmasters, Wrath users, people who like having an ace in the hole to call on when they're losing.
Slim (-MT/++Hit/-Crit) - Low accuracy units Bronze weapons, D-Rank toys, situational filling in gaps of power. Generally reliable is better

Edit: Months have passed.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Still having problems with gold? More people have been playing 3v3s on Gauntlet because of the massive gold reward it offers.
Other maps that work:
Soulful Bridge - Faster than Akitsaws, because it's only a 1v1 map with 20 units each. gold rewards as high as 8000/4000 8000 (or 16000/8000 16,000 if it's your first time against the opponent)
Light - 2v4 map with 8/8/8 vs 12/12 settings. Keep in mind the 8/8/8 get 2 lords each and the 12/12 get 3 lords each. Gold rewards tend to be relatively massive here as well, with full promoteds seeing 40,000/20,000 40,000 rewards (divided by each member on the team)

Edit: Win or lose, you get the same amount of gold.

Update on "Which items do I bring?" section.

Physicals:
Toy (Reliable), Toy (Heavy), Toy (Slim), or Toy (Sharp): There is no middle ground here. You either want to raise critical to the point where you can nail a crit, or neuter it in order to make the other stats more desirable.
Toy (Reliable) - Most units.
Toy (Slim) - Only units with abysmal hit chances. <20 skl and the like. Opponents aren't as scared of slim toys as they are reliable ones though. even with 5% hit difference, 2 damage is a lot.
Toy (Heavy) - Offensive weapon. On the defense, you're losing 10 hit for 1 mt from reliable. Not a good trade
Toy (Sharp) - Critmasters, Wrath users, and people that think 25% crit will scare their opponent into not attacking

Physicals:
0 wt: Slim Bronze
Reliable Iron
1 wt: Reliable silver
2 wt: Sharp Mithril (In lieu of or in addition to a killer)
Reliable Great (In lieu of S rank)
Heavy Great


Others aren't bad, these are just really nice to have.
Slim Bronze to hit those 105 evade classes
reliable iron for good damage and 0 wt
reliable silver for good damage and 1 wt
sharp mithril to pull them game from behind if you need to risk it on a critical
Reliable great if you don't have an S rank weapon
Heavy great, because it's the highest damage in the game


Physicals:
1 Slim Bronze - Low end damage
1 Reliable Great (or S rank) - High end damage
1 Toy of choice - ranged counterattack
1 Killer weapon or Sharp Mithril or Sharp Great - Last Ditch Effort
? Specialty weapons - Brave weapon, Horseslayer, Armorslayer, Parity, Twin, Longbow, Onager, Reaver
Depending on how many slots you have left after equipping specialty weapons, it is recommended you equip the following
(NOTE: If you're a critmaster, or using wrath, Reliable weapons may be traded for slim versions of the next rank up.)
(NOTE2: If you're not concerned with WT restrictions or gold cost, Lethal of the next rank may be used in place of reliable)
1 slot remaining: Reliable Steel - This puts your vanilla attacks at 1/114, 8/99, 15/84.
2 slots remaining: Reliable Iron + Reliable silver - This puts your vanilla attacks at 1/114, 5/104, 9/94, 15/84
3 slots remaining: Reliable Iron + Reliable Steel + Reliable Mithril - This puts your vanilla attacks at 1/114, 5/104, 8/99, 13/89, 15/84

Any more than that, you can add at will.
-For more high accuracy versatility, consider a reliable bronze
-For more high damage versatility, consider a heavy great
-If you're a gambler, consider lethal B rank toys.

Magicals:
Slim Wind
Reliable Fire
Reliable Elfire
Sharp Tornado
Reliable Bolganone
Heavy Bolganone
