      When you were New to the Game

      While questing a new through Mooshu; brought back memories of when I started playing and how naive and ignorant of the game I was then. I was in need of diamonds for crafting. Back then I didn't know the Bazaar had more than one page to it, I thought all that there was, was the gear page. I wasn't advanced in gardening so, I went around in the Cave of Solitude gathering up ore till I got enough diamonds to do my project. It took weeks of moving about all the rock platforms, trying to avoid the creatures and waiting for the ores to respawn (I didn't know you could change realms either ).

      What's some of the things you've done because you were new that you'd slap yourself in the forehead now if you did them.

      Re: When you were New to the Game

      I didn't garden so I didn't take advantage of Double Seeds, not to mention didn't have a good pet for a long time. Also sticking to a single wizard for a long time too, it was just Dylan but I should have diversified earlier making it so I'd have more maxes now

      Re: When you were New to the Game

      Way back in the very beginning when I got pets buying cards from Blockbuster and for years after I had no idea about how to level them up. I was such a dummy didn't realize about hatching and improving thought it was all too hard and probably not worth it.
      I can also remember going nuts running around through Marleybone every morning from 3- 4am before going to work trying to find all the Scrap Iron I could get for my crafting. Then doing the same in Mooshu for Black Lotus UGH!! Would have been a lot easier if I'd known about realm hopping back then!

      Trials are like fire ~ they can destroy or strengthen you,
      depending on your character and choices in life.
      Remember ~the same fire that melts butter, strengthens steel.

      Cool Re: When you were New to the Game

      Oh boy, time to travel through time, LOL

      I actually started by "suggestion" from my doctor to find something to help me relax and stop stressing. Back in the 70's I was a big D&D fan (I still have all my original D&D books and notes/papers, dice and figures) and when I saw the first commercial for W101 just after it came out from Beta, I gave it a try and have been hooked ever since (And I reduced my stress meds by 50%).

      The biggest lesson I learned was to NOT use up all my spell points just to have as many spells as possible. My first wizard did this and I was stuck with so many spells I did not need or use and did not have enough to get the actual ones I DID need. Buying back spells was and still is expensive and time consuming since you have to buy back everything and go around finding what you wanted to keep (What a MAJOR pain).

      Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

      Re: When you were New to the Game

      Not discovering Grub Guardian until much later. Gosh I miss it. And I would have loved to have done PVP in the first age. Missing out on some of the exclusive items from earlier times would have been fun too. Finally, I did not discover this forum until several years into gameplay. Man, the wealth of information that would have helped me so much early on!

      Re: When you were New to the Game

      the first three wizards i deleted. but the first one was a balance wizard which i basically wasted all training points on ALL schools. Now the average wizard has 20 extra training points each.


      When i came back a few months later with my oldest current wizard. I don't think i gardened much. but it was just for fun not for snacks or reagents. everything when i was new was foraging for reagents. didn't place much stock on gear. and back then the big hit for balance was judgement. I used that wraith in Mooshu as practice to hone my combats.

      Unhappy Re: When you were New to the Game

      I sold my Selena Gomez statue and painting, along with the veteran's day statue to a Shopping District vendor. Still kicking myself for that.

      Way back when I was new to the game, there were no transmute recipes, so all of us who were playing when Crafting was introduced had to do exactly what you did to collect our reagents. AND we had to make 5 of each item for the greedy NPC's. If we saw someone else harvesting reagents, we HAD to switch realms to find anything at all - that's when I learned the value of Perfect Realms.

      I somehow went through Diego's tutorial and completely missed the instructions on how to use a treasure card enhancement, so I spent a few frustrated months as a Life wizard wishing I could do a little more damage, all the while sitting on many Tough and Strong, etc. cards in my inventory. Of course, back in the day we could only carry 99, so treasure card trading was quite popular.

      Even though we all stumbled a bit during during our Ravenwood training, we all learned from it and graduated with honors.

      Re: When you were New to the Game

      I just had a thought - with the FTUE update, they should have included a new quest that directs young Wizards to see Mildred Farseer in Colossus Blvd. How many of us never knew about her until someone told us or we looked up a spell? This is especially true for Life Wizards who cannot learn Life Trap unless they find her. Not every player explores all the nooks and crannies as they quest.
