New Player Guide[edit | edit source]

Summary[edit | edit source]

Along with a few other users (User:Elkswampdog/New_player_guide and User:Nex_Undique/New_player_guide) we are aiming to create a new player's guide for the RSW.

For many of us, the game is so easy to play, but we forget when we were new to the game and didn't know where anything was! The aim of this is to have one central page (with sub-pages) to explain basic concepts to new players, and provide different "goals" they can aim for (ie unlocking Prifddinas).

The current in-game tutorial works fine to explain how to play a point-and-click MMORPG, and the VERY basic concepts of interacting etc. The path system expands on this nicely, but once you reach the end of the path system, there's no clear way forward, or even suggestion of how to find a clear way forward. For a lot of players, the lack of knowing what to do next will be a reason they leave the game.

While I don't intend to hand-hold every single player from character creation through to having 500 phats and 200m in everything, the intention of this guide is to help new players find a path they like through the game, whether that's afk skilling, PvM, quests or whatever they like.
