Newbie Guide: Getting Started

Posted Fri, Apr 25, 2008 by Xerin

Figuring out the start of the game.

Our newbie guide is getting a few additions and kicking things off is a getting started guide that explains the ins and outs of the game in a quick and easy to understand manner. This is the perfect guide to follow-up our Choosing a Class guide as it starts the moment you enter the game. So if you're new to the game, need a refresher, or know someone who is starting then be sure to give this guide a look!

The first thing you’ll have to do is create a character. Character creation is covered in our Newbie Guide along with our Choosing a Class guide. Once your character is made you’ll find yourself watching an opening cinematic (which can be skipped with the ESC key). After the cinematic your character will be loaded into the game and you should be facing an NPC (that’s a non-playable character or in simpler terms a character played by the game) with a yellow exclamation point over its head.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
