SotA - newbie experience

Post by tangar » Thu Aug 11, 2016 9:54 am

Some new players complain about newbie items durability and that its hard to get repair kit... But newbie do not need repair kit, guys :)

Yep, things break. But newbie items has more then enough durability. Its impossible to destroy newbie items for 3 hours, for example :) Till then you would get loads of gold for quests, loot from mobs, items from crates & etc. You even could play NAKED and beat weak monsters, gather resources, complete quests... But again, its not necessary - game gives you pretty good weapons at the beginning.

The problem in newbie experience not in items durability, but in not really good tutorial... It has to be polished a lot. OR it has to be removed, like it was in UO. There could be two approach - no tutorial (it gives sandbox feeling) OR good, polished tutorial, which shows beauty of the game. Right now it has to be revamped imho (I started to play at R32).
