Yes we have many of the old npc's and many new ones. But some such as lock pick is a type of mini quest. Others require you to be a certain level etc..

What do you expect. Log on 5 minutes and see everything there is to see? Many things are hidden until you reach a certain level etc... it takes time. We made it intentionally so you couldnt do everything right away.

Well I don't see a lot to do.. but there is one thing I don't like. I would tell you my idea on how to fix it, but then again, I would rather just use it in Oasis so you can see for yourself.

I logged off when an Orc that I couldn't hurt even though I kept slashing him killed me in one hit and I was sent to hell.

I don't know if this is a glitch, or what, but when you die, you go back to level 1 and all the level 1 stats... how stupid is that?

Any one with half a brain and no armor wouldnt try to kill a lvl 35 orc.

Hell is possibly being removed or edite dsome howit was an idea.

You lose 1 level see that 1 level when you die. If you're level 2 yes you will go to level 1. We did this so people wouldnt sit there and go oh who cares if I die while fighting a level 35 orc with no armor. But since no one seems to like it. Then it is also being removed.

An hour? Thats just funny if you think you can find everything in an hour. As previously stated also many things are hidden until you reach a certain level.

that sounds like a good idea to me because this way people will try to stay alive, but i haven't been on yet so i don't know for sure, but that sounds like an alright idea

Thats a good idea. For some things. But this being our first day with the release. We've been to busy fixing bugs and frankly my butt is tired. I've been fixing bugs for 8 and a half hours now and also trying to host RP's at the same time. There is a problem where we're having trouble setting who can add members to guilds so I'm having to do it manuelly. (sp?) After we get the bugs squared away we'll work on making more things and easier things as well. We're not doing to bad considering we're averaging 30 people so far and we where up to 45 until idiot admins from Val came on and started screaming at people to go back to val. I was tempted to log off my self then it was annoying. -_-

I could only find two baddies the whole time I was there.. and it was *** because there was like 15 other people trying to kill the same two baddies and everyone was killing eachother just so they could get a turn at killing the baddies for experience.

Plus your baddies are awful. They need to like, respawn somewhere else when killed, and also you can just stand in one place and beat the crap out of them over and over without ever being hit.

It also sucks to get hit one time and die by a high level player. Like I walk in a level, a guy swings his sword and I die instantly. That is rather annoying.

thats why on pandora i did alot of thigns to make sure that it wasnt so easy to kill baddies over and over

i made baddies knock you back if you have them pinned against a wall, they also get knocked back as well.

also they are the first to hit you usualy, when they come back from knockback.

I couldn't choose minstrel or cleric. [didn't try kung-fu guy.]

And not many people are actually being hit by the baddies anymore. I'm invulnerable to their attacks.

This is exactly why Providence ISN'T awesome. In ONE day of the new stuff being up, there are already level 47+ players.

If your experience/leveling system isn't balanced properly, then you might as well not have one at all. :o

Konidias is right.

Here are some suggestions:

- Make something like Newbie Protection on Classic (lvl 59 threw bush at me and I died... BUSHES ARE SUPPOSED TO DO NO DAMAGE x.X)
- Also make merchants a little better x.X
- MORE BADDIES!
- Quests for items
- Better start, it's boring to go around slashing things.
- Fix Baddy script... it lags...
- Get rid of hell 0.o

There was a bug where some how people couldnt get hurt by the baddies at all even when hit.
Merchants will also be adjusted so they can make money with out having to rely soley on other players buying.
There are now more baddies.
There are some quest for items.
We tested all day friday and never saw many of these bugs. x.x

If an NAT would get online I could have much of this fixed.
If I could get more NAT's I could get this fixed faster.

You're right the baddies could be alot better. But that would require better scripters. I did have it alot harder to level where you died you lost a level. But I got sick of every one crying omg I lost a level this server sucks this server sucks I lost a levle. As for hell I'm probably moving it so if you die you get warped to the clinic and a guy revives you. It amazes me how stupid people are. Um like theres a bug I keep getting stuck in this level. What level? underworld.nw Newbie protection isnt a bad idea hadnt considered that. The main thing that is kicking us in the shorts is lack of really good npcserver scripters. Because people *coughroycecough* kept insulting giltwist etc.. he decided he had better things to do with his time than put up with people from graal insulting him. Now that Providence is down it will take longer for the bugs to be fixed. x.x We're working as fast as we can.

Losing one level isn't bad when you are like level 30.. but when you just gain a level to level 2, then you die, it really sucks.

Most Providence levels may suckass, but I enjoy the stats system.

If Graal Insider was up I'd give you a 3 out of 5

Place is a lot of fun now, only problem is you need more bandits not just 1 for each level of experience....
