New edition of the Newcomers Guide

I have restructured and rewritten the whole article. The new edition is heavily based upon the previous version of the guide. Keep in mind that some of the sections cover things that others are lacking, it is probably the best of you read the whole article before editing it. --Ahnaom 07:35, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Discussion about the previous edition

Why is this an orphan page? I think placing it in the main page will be helpful for new players. --Oktavius 00:14, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. I didn't even know this page exsisted until I checked recent changes. --Wulla-mullung 00:48, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
That's my fault. I started this page, then got occupied with the historical articles and DEP. My Shartak muse can only handle so much. Any additions are welcome.--Black Joe 02:30, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
Without any links to it, your nice work is wasted. I'll put it on the main page; hope you don't mind. --Oktavius 17:40, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
It was never finished. I'd intended to link to it once I had more done. Still, thanks.--Black Joe 23:32, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Tips for starting out

I removed the following from Tips for Starting Out:

*The jungle isn't easy to just walk through. Before heading out into the jungle,
it is advised that you have the Trekking skill, so you can travel further in the same amount of AP.

The Island is easy to walk around. Some parts are more difficult, but it's not that hard - trekking just makes it cost less AP, which can be an issue for new players with the IP block. You can start and play a character without trekking.

I'd like to suggest we avoid telling people how to build their characters on this page. There are other pages where skills can be recommended for various reasons (some for hp, some for attack, some for healing, some for trekking, some for exploration etc) and for the various ways that people play.

The newcomers guide for example could include a link to the Tips_and_tricks#Beginner's_guide which has further information, including recommended skills. Johan Crichton 21:59, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Must have skills

Do you think triage should be here? Even if your not the healing type, it could help pking pirates distinguish between the injured and the full-on-health ones. --Wulla-mullung 23:56, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
