Hi, welcome to the game! The best advice I can offer you is to read up on some of the guides. The new player guide is probably good. The game doesn't have any sort of tutorial to speak of and therefor has a large learning curve, but the community is very helpful and informative.

The game has improved a lot since the initial release. I used to have terrible, almost unplayable lag (especially with the UI) and it seems like a lot of that has cleared up. The main reason I quit was because I wanted to do several tradeskills and the inventory was just too limited. It had I think like 75 spaces, you couldn't sort it and items only stacked up to 12. Now they stack to 99, you have 100 spaces and you can hire two retainers (NPCs that hold your stuff and can sell some things for you) for an addition 100 spaces each. So they fixed my major complaints. The next update is supposed to include some new content too so we're excited.

i started 2 weeks ago, and indeed the community is great.
Read forum + wiki
The quest locations dont show on the map, go menu-journal-quest-then map :)

The learning is long but great, that why i like this game.
Remember, this is "beta", things that you think suck or missing are getting fixed

Might I suggest Besaid? ;) You may want to go to the server specific forum for the server you're interested in (Besaid) and see which linkshells are recruiting.

Reasons why you should pick Besaid: everyone is pretty friendly, a large population of English speaking people, and it's the unofficial role-play server which can be kind of entertaining sometimes. I don't RP, but it kind of adds atmosphere when people are RP'ing in the local tavern or walking around talking about whatever it is RP people talk about.

Check the lodestone and read the FAQs and stuff. At the first crystal is a tutorial, called Adventurer's Guide or something. Should help ^^
