New Players and Quests
« on: February 26, 2019, 01:43:30 PM »
I noticed we still get a decent amount of new players or players returning after a long hiatus.

It might be nice to have a thread/post on zones to do to help get them to 25, tips/tricks (like being able to "pray" at a cleric guild to get rid of curse), etc.

And for things like heal quest or regen quest or robes quest to point them in right direction.  The world here is super large, and I think a lot of the knowledge all of us have is passed on from clans or friends, which gives people a distinct advantage.

Just a thought.  I see a guy named Ruck trying to make his way through the game, and I as well as other people help them, but it would be cool if there was something to make sure people don't get frustrated and stop.  I remember when I started playing again and Johari helped guide me through Neraka, I appreciated that.

If anyone or some folks collectively want to review and update help newbie and all the help newbie <area> specific helpfiles that would be great and I will happily update the ones in game.

I remember him from the past. Johari helped me when I was confused trying to help my cleric get heal. It is tough to get going again after, any help the better, especially updated help zone files.

Just to add to this, when we did the redesign of Solace (now a decade old), the goal was very much that basically all new players would spend time leveling in Solace. Most of the zones repop so quickly, it is expected players can do Solace through level 15 without any hindrance--both good and evil characters.
