    thanks, been reading some of the sites, damn this game sounds complicated

    thinking of making a human warrior, any hints you can give me ?

    edit : half way thru patching
    edit 2 : 99% wish me luck to hit bismark in 1 GO :)

    Welcome. :cheers:
    Dont worry the controls and macros make so much more sense "in action". :p

    It is, at first. Once you get used to it it's so rewarding though :D


    Edit: Also, some of the things we're discussing is nothing you'll have to worry about until higher levels, if at all. Renkei's etc are for those who want to perform just a bit higher - I'm guessing you could do well without them too, just takes a while longer :)

    Howlong did it take you to create in bismark and is there anything I should know before I get home?

    I am about to install and create in about an hour (after updates).

    If you decide to try and get in by re-rolling. Press ESC when it asks you to link your character to a handle. ( this is after selecting allegiance )

    Then go to "Delete Character" - if it says your character is on Bismarck - congratulations!

    If not, delete it and create a new one.

    Wash, rinse and repeat.

    If you do not press ESC ( or in any other way abort ) at the handle-link screen you will have to watch the intro movie for your nation over, and over, and over, and... you get the point. ( and no, you can't abort that movie )

    hehe, good one ;) This link might remove those delusions ^^

    Hello and welcome to the game :)

    Oh and you might consider not trying -too- hard with grouping before you're around L9-10 as it's just not really worth it, atleast not from my experience.
    :)

    Aha, finally got in now! And it's bedtime! Had a run around, killed a few bumblebees, dinged level 2 - yay!

    Grping at 10-12 is kinda sucky unless your a blm.

    At 20 grping starts getting real fun, in Qufim, although theres lots of crap grps there.

    In Kazham @ 25, almost all the noobs are filtered off.

    [QUOTE='Shy]Uber, you can power lvl me!! :D[/QUOTE]
    Sadly, that doesn't work very well unless he's a white mage. And outside the group :)

    When grouping, the lowest level member is the one getting the worst exp :p

    I grouped as lvl 2 (newly dinged) monk with a lvl 1 whm once.

    I dinged lvl 3 before she dinged 2 :eek:
     
  26. sibanac

    sibanac Fledgling Freddie


    hehe Shy i am to uber to group with you /flex

    You can talk to me tho, whats your char name ?
     
  27. 'Shy

    'Shy One of Freddy's beloved

    Aww, well you have to stop xping so fast, or reroll or something :D I'll get lonely if I can't make any friends :(

    Character name is Shhy cos I couldn't get Shy :( Not sure what my plans are for tonight yet, but I'll look for you when I get on.

    So, can you only group with peoples exactly your same level? Or do the level gaps change as you get higher?
     
  28. Elvo^Rylu

    Elvo^Rylu Fledgling Freddie

    A grp with more tahn a 2lvl gap is considered gimped.

    The mob gives exp compared to what the mob con to the highest lvl in grp.

    Also the lowest lvls get a exp penalty.

    So, unlike daoc, its actually best exp to be the highest lvl in the grp.

    Right, well I went home for lunch and I'm almost 4 now, so as long as Sibanac doesn't xp this afternoon I'd be fine to group with him laters!

    A few more questions while I'm here, and a grumble..

    I can't do /who - how do I find out whos online?

    The controls are really awkward and I'm finding it quite hard to run, target a mob and attack it fast enough before it runs away. I read something about shortcuts with the alt or ctrl keys - can anyone explain how I do that please?

    Cons? Everything I target seems yellow, and when I lock onto the target it's red. So how do I know I can kill it or if it will kick my ass before I go ahead and attack it?

    I did have a query about the resolution but I think that was answered in another thread so I'll have another play with that when I get home.

    And my grumble............. I really miss jumping :(

    I am at work so no fear :)

    ohh ohh me i know that i know that ! (ofcourse there will be a better way)

    select the mob then in the combat menu the last option, i think its check, will show you some text along the lines of (bla bla is tough or bla bla is a challenge ...)


    A question from me aswell, how do i use w-a-s-d to move ?
