I've looked through all the threads on the first couple of pages and have missed or couldn't find any threads for beginners. What people should do when they start out and what sort of goals should be made for someone who spends x amount of time in the game. This isn't quite that thread because its mostly me asking questions about the game instead of giving everyone a low down of how things work...
I started playing a couple days ago although Ive only spent maybe 3 to 4 hours in the game so far. One of the things Id love to know is how or where I can get various weapons to change my class. So far I was able to find a vendor who sells an axe of some sort. Though the axe costs about 1200 gil. So I'm guessing all the starter weapons will be similar? And if thats the case then it'll be similar for crafting tools as well. How are people making any money? What cities are more starter friendly for new players.. These sort of questions should be asked and answered to make things easier for new people to the game.
Now before anyone throws any mud at me. I am an experienced MMO player. And I used to play FFXI way back when. I was a PLD in full Koenig (though I wore legs from that giant Chimera in Sky...I forget his name...they gave me speed increase of 25% or something). Anywho...I havent started to get serious with the game yet and might even delete my character and start another. But I'm curious as to what everyone else thinks. Because this game has a steeper learning curve than FFXI in my opinion. Or maybe I'm just used to skill chains, etc. lol
I chose Uldah btw....A little confusing on the maps. And please take into consideration that I never played the Beta or Alpha...so it's all new to people like myself.
