A brief Hello :)

DakotahDakotah Wales, UKMember Posts: 29 ✭✭ - Stalwart

Hello there!!

I'm new to the game and the forums. I'm a little Targossian priest and I have to say i'm really enjoying it although I don't have much knowledge of coding or MUDs in general. I'm a member of the Mudlet clan but I was wondering if there were any other resources that might be worth my while to check? in order to get in with the basics. Also, I'm interested in "attempting" the combat scene.

I was told making my balance recovery more noticeable was a start so I'm looking to add things to that and since the forums tend to house the experienced players I thought it might be good to get your opinions on where to start? advice/guidance?

    The best advice I can give you: don't be Ovid.

    Dude who bought literally every artefact in the game or something and who doesn't do anything. like, I've never even seen him talk. Point is, play for a while and get to know folks before you splurge everything you have on it. It's a lot more fun as a multiplayer game rather than a singleplayer!

    I think you're thinking of Ottis. Ovid was the Qashar posterboy that got the Divine wrist slap for using every dirty trick in the book to kill everyone they didn't like.



    As for resources: The Mudlet clan is great, as is the SVO (main curing system) clan, and I believe there's an Omnipave clan as well (similar to SVO).  I'd ask your combat folks in Targ about how to go about the combat stuff - I legitimately have no clue how Priest works, but I can tell you this. There are Traits that you can pick that do things like decrease your balance/equilibrium time, but changing traits is expensive. Think about them and talk them over with folks before picking.

    I'd type more, but I'm literally passing out right now. Hope you stick to the game and enjoy!

    -- Grounded in but one perspective, what we perceive is an exaggeration of the truth.

    Errr, thanks but no thanks. I'm afraid the Dawnlord and the rest of Targossas are just too much fun!

    Hi! And welcome to Achaea!
    Thank you!

    I also don't play on being a jerk face so it's safe to say that I won't be doing an Ovid! As for the svo clan. I will have to look it up, I had only heard of the mudlet one.

    What Ashtan and Mhaldor do not have, unfortunately, is Aurora and Deucalion.

    Lose a lot of points for that.

    If you haven't already got a curing system, you might want to consider giving the server-side curing system that Achaea provides a try. Nemutaur and Jarrod have been posting some useful information about making use of it in this thread: http://forums.achaea.com/discussion/2174/serverside-curing-theory

    @Daeir Damn, I just chortled and lost half my cuppa tea *sad face* 

    @Antonius Thanks, I'll take a look at the link for any useful information. I do have svo though. I've changed my balance and equilibrium to be more noticeable like the omni setup as I tried the free version of that for a while. I found it confusing but I liked that feature.

    And an eldritch abomination character, played by a very human player. I think I should switch with @Synbios, just for shits and giggles.

    Ah, I remember the time when we got accidentally trapped in a locked room in the city. I was about to be victimized by some of your vaguely nefarious schemes to undo my arcane grip in this reality. Good thing we prismed out instead.
