New Player Help

Recommended Posts

Overall I think this is a good start for the new player - however I have a slight disagreement on the RR entry. RR = RoadRunner, not RoadRunner Plus - and as a builder I can say I've run into this far too often. I would suggest amending the list to instead show:

RR = RoadRunner

RR+ = RoadRunner Plus

RR+ is a common and popular device and I think we don't do ourselves any favors introducing new players to a nomenclature that is bound to set up confusion - let's instead try to get it right from the get-go.

Market:

WTB: Want to Buy

WTBU/WTU: Want to Buy Upgraded/ Want to Upgrade (usually a lower level item to higher level item)

WTT: Want To Trade

WTS: Want to Sell

Other:

PL: Power Level (not to be confused with projectile launcher)

NINJA: to loot someone else's kill.

TOUR: when a veteran player groups with others alts or new chars and takes them to several sectors to explore the NAVs to help gain exp for all.

I've also seen Tienbau shortened to "TB".

And while this is not an abbreviation per se...

When you see this in the computer chat spam (the *other* chat window, not the guild/general/new players/etc. window) ...

Tienbau has logged in.

Know for certain that a server reboot is imminent. :)

-Back From School and Tennis so hasn't been updated. Going to add some of suggestions and such. Also avoiding offensive abbreviations, or more basic right now. Due to majority of people that play know what most stuff means such as AFK, I'll probably add commonly not known when community grows more, or on request of new new gamers. Though will add WTB, WTS and such due to FPS players might not be typically familiar with such.

Thanks for the Classes. I had that, but I must of accidental deleted it when formating/adjust spots.

"Bumping" Due to Omorb posting on Job Locations, which overall these little things are helpful for new players and possible older players to if they forget. <_<

Updated slightly, also a slight bump.

Bump, just to help new players.

If you want to something added or such.

PM me.

Currently playing 'competively' in League of Legends, and FPSs.

Pretty much quit EnB after my Dad quit, which is main reason I played.

I scan the boards still and don't mind helping.

It's in the database, it doesn't appear to drop from any mobs though.

the jobs in VT are level 75, not 105.

Any chance of listing the jobs in order of level?

Thanks for the edit. I was just afk. :-) I started this awhile ago, so it's possible things have changed (jobs) when more things were learned, or just typos. I'm not perfect either.

No problem. I camp these forums pretty heavily, so I tend to see things as soon as they happen, lol.

Pretty Much, I went to bed at 12am, sleep at 12:45ish. I woke up at 9:50am(Alarm), but laid down to stretch and stuff, but didn't wake back up. Was kinda of annoyed when I woke up(5pm). To much sleep can be bad sometimes. ><

I usually camp the forums too, a-lot while playing EnB. Other games, I'll check after each match etc. So from 10-45minutes each checkup and such. Been playing a Low Level JE. Trying to balance some things to 40 then mine to 150. Heh, been testing/playing with the new mining adjustments etc.

If you see fit to add anything feel free to edit though. I'm not opposed it is mainly one of those community guide things/etc where I take suggestions what to add, or add what fits.

Added, there is a thread, sorta of buried. I copied the commands over, if new ones are added C Del/Mods/Admins etc. Are able to edit more post instead of PMing it to me. Heh.

Edit: These are 'hidden' commands. There is also in-game commands that show in the help bar or w/e. Somewhere in the options.

I'll modify the in-game command list to be curren to the emulator. The list that's in there now is unchanged from live. For those who don't know where to find the command list, I think it's under Help > Slash Commands. (in-game)
