I know there is a MASSIVE new player thread out there in the general forums. As our server thread is much smaller, and easier to manage and surf thru, I though we could create a list on our own server thread.
So, what are some things you wish YOU had known during headstart that would have made your game play experience better.
* When you first start a character, you are in a phased area. If you wish to play with a friend, group with that person and you'll get the option to join phase. Otherwise, you may not see them. (happend with my BF and I)
* Unless a person has themselves set to private, you can select join group from the character window. Grouping up does not prevent the gain of experience points, nor does it prevent the other person any quest mob kills or quest item drops. It's a great system... 10 people farming in your area.. group up and you'll be done in no time, with no drawbacks (infact, looking at it, I *Think* you get bonus EXP... they could have changed that through)
* For Defiants: Don't leave "The future" without witnessing the battle during the last rift. I rushed it the first time, but the second stayed around... It's a major story point.... and kinda cool too.
* Don't worry about rushing to crafting nodes... they respawn really fast. I was looking for quest mobs, and one flower respawned 5 times before I had finished my quest.
(please continue [if you have something to add])
