New Player Tutorial Suggestions

Hey all,

We're looking to create a tutorial to help newer players get on their feet in Era. I was wondering what troubles you all had as new players and what you think might be helpful in this tutorial for a new player to Era. All suggestions are appreciated!

Step 1: Get someone who is actually experienced in teaching players how to play the game.

Step 2: Make that information presentable in a way that they can understand without thinking "How does this make sense at all?"

Step 3: Disclaimer: MMOs are full of ****s.

probably the main thing would be: how to earn money! else you could tell them how to open the main menues, when you can get more HP and such

if you're a new player, you wanna know how to type, move, and use items.

everything else comes later because it's outside of the core basics. once you figure out the bare minimum (graal isn't exactly a complex game to pick up and play...lol) you pretty much get the rest.

Not sure if the greatest tutorial ever could do that.

Anyways, we've begun the tutorial and I don't expect it will take too long to complete it. We're going over the basics, q-menu, equipping items, dropping items, the trade/lending systems, the jobs, and sparring. Also going to include potions, hotkeys, and strafe.

It might be worth explaining the job system, I had issues working out which job was most profitable over a period of time.

bloodykiller is infamous around these partsbloodykiller is infamous around these parts
u should do 5minutes of instructions where the new player can see an npc working/pking/opening doors and doing all this basic stuff
then the new player starts a quest against bots which are initially very weak and gradually become more decent (but never very good, so the noobie actually thinks he has a chance to do good on era and he'll get addicted). this "quest" can only be completed once and awards a few mystery coins to motivate these new players

Yes, find a way to get them addicted, that's the only way we will ever get more players! (no sarcasm intended)

Quests are nice as long as they work well, the NPCs always update and bug out when there's a second player.
