I just recently began playing EQOA and have gotten fairly acquainted with the game mechanics. I'm now a level 10 Warrior in Qeynos and I'm wondering what do I do next? I've never played EQ before, but I played DAoC. There are a few things that seem more difficult to do in a PS2 game than in a PC one, and I'm just looking for a few tips.
1. Quests: After searching around the internet for awhile, I can't seem to find quests other than the ones given every few levels by the class master (I don't know what his official title is). I found one other, the sunbeetle one, but every other NPC I ask doesn't seem to offer any. I see a few here in there on the quest lists on EQOA webpages, but they're in places I don't know how to get to yet. Is there a trick to getting more quests, or is it not as frequent as it was in DAoC?
2. Travel: I talked to the stable master in Qeynos but he told me that I can't use a horse until I register at other stables. Does this mean I have to run around the whole continent before I can use a horse to travel around it? Any suggestions for where I should go next? I went to a nearby town, but there wasn't much else going on there. How important is it for me to travel, and are there any recommended places that I should head to first?
3. Groups: Where can I find groups? In PC mmorpgs, there's always a function for finding a group by searching for people your level or for groups that need your class... but that doesn't seem possible in this game. What is the best way that I can find a group?
I have a million other questions, but these are the most important. After looking around this seems like the most active EQOA community, thanks in advance for your help.
