thead has some handy little nuggets of advice that will help you start out.
The important thing to remember is that you're not stuck with any one job forever in this game - feel free to try them all out, see what works for you, what you enjoy. You may find a job and fall in love with it right away, or you may choose to relax and do a little of everything.
Never be afraid to ask politely for help and advice in the game either. Most players will be only to happy to answer a question as long as its polite.
I'm not sure how new you are, but it might be an idea to try and find a linkshell if you don't already have one . The first few days as a new player can feel very lonely, so a linkshells kind of like an instant group of people to talk to. I don't play on your server, so I don't have any linkshell recommendations for you, but I'm sure someone can help you out with a couple of good names.
Best of luck, welcome to the game, and I hope you enjoy it . Edited, Sep 29th 2008 5:22pm by fatalillusiontw
