@Andrew @Neilk @Bound @Umberto @MWTaylor @Metalkon BPG, Before you go free to play please for the love of god resolve this. To the DEVS: I understand you guys have a huge roadmap ahead of you but NPE should be your number 1 priority. A 10 page notepad and some shit gear/weps is a sorry excuse for a new player experience. New players have 0 fucking idea what to do in this game and they always quit because it's so daunting. Hire a designer & developer solely devoted to managing this project. Make Seelie a noob only zone. Force a tutorial that goes through all basics of the game. - Players will have 48 hours to learn all crucial aspects of the game before getting teleported to their starter cities. - Absolutely no griefing in this zone. All players will be auto-rezzed and no one can loot each others pve kills. - On screen pop-ups will indicate what they need to do and what their current quest is. - When they get teleported out of Seelie a pop-up indicates that can potentially now lose all their gear and they will not be auto-rezzed when killed. QUESTS - STAT MANAGEMENT: Pull out staff and use all 3 transfers. - RUNE / PVE BASICS: Run to PVE spot, mark a rune outside of the mob spawn, farm the mob and learn pve basics (fighting, looting, resting, stats, etc..) Recall and go bank loot. Use rune to get back to PVE spot and kill another round of mobs. - POTIONS / FOOD: When at PVE spot and player is low on stats put a big popup reminder that says to use food and potions to restore stats/health. - GEAR / BANKING: Give them a full gear bag (full set of bone, full set of scale, R50 weapons etc..) Force them to go to the bank and teach basics of banking. Renaming bags, organizing, splitting, dropping etc. - ARCHERY / MELEE / MAGIC: Force them to use all 3 of these on a mob. Will teach them to bind weapons, use hotkeys. - MOUNTS: Force them to craft a mount with steed grass, bind it to a hot key, spawn and despawn it. - CRAFTING / ENCHANTING: Force them to gather various materials and craft a weapon. Force them to gather the enchanting mats and add an enchant on the weapon. - SIEGES / CLANS: This would have to be a short video or slideshow that displays holdings, sieges, clans, etc.. Overall these quests would greatly improve new player retention. They would quickly learn all the fundamentals of the game in an enjoyable experience. PVP ZONE: Make a specific zone of the island that is clearly marked for practicing pvp. No ganking and auto-rez and automatically turned on here. LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY: Allow veteran players to apply for a leadership role. Vets will be telelported to Seelie and tasked with answering questions in the Seelie noob chat. They can also group up with a noob and speed up the learning process. Upon 1 hour of being on the island the vet will be teleported back to their location and given an exclusive starter wep or cool player customization that can't be looted. I'm sure there are other aspects that could be changed/added but I haven't touched the game in over a year so my memory is a little foggy.
