For the hard one, would someone let me know if I am right so far?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
If I was dealing with just the four classes below. Are these in the right order so far with the Paladin being the weakest. And for that matter does weakest imply Level 1?
paladin sorcerer ranger knight

Yep, you've got it so far, weakest does imply level 1, and if you have your 4 listed from weakest to strongest (of those 4) you are correct. Keep up the good work, you're getting there!

Well if those are tanga numbers, I have not found the key, nor do I know what Watson's capitalization means.

I thought it had something to do with elements or the table of elements, as you can break Watson's startement into element symbols.
W=tungsten
H=Hydrogen
O=Oxygen
As=arsenic
Al=Aluminum
I=Iodine
Ar=Argon

But I'm lost.

2nd letter is wrong. That's it. Plus, it's not a name, so I was a bit disappointed.

similarly with words like: Speckle/Despeckle for "add fine particles, remove fine particles?" but that isn't getting me anywhere with the ? marks.

the number of question marks has to do with overlapping letters of the answers to each pair?

The word for "advantage" and the word for "disadvantage" must overlap with 6 letters since there are 6 question marks.

I found a coincidental use for the number of question marks in the first few words I found. Thanks for steering me in the right direction dsmeyer
