I can mig but who can’t lol. So here’s my problem. I have a 160 amp DC arc welder & I’m really good with 6013 (1/8,3/32 mainly) but keep sticking or burning through plates with anything else..... what did everybody else start learning with? Where should I go from here/try next? Any tips on polarity, amperage setting? Any good arc welding advice you could share please. I’m just sticking with steel for now but any advice would be priceless. Thanks

If you can do 6013, you can do 7018. Start with 3/32, and set welder to about 78-80 amps. Drag smooth and dont whip it. You'll be just fine.
