I'm thinking about returning to the realm from a VERY long (read: 15ish years IRL) absence. The last time I logged in, I was in a pretty sorry state: naked, hungry, and suffering damage from it. I read about a TON of changes that have happened so instead of trying to not die immediately upon re-entering while trying to learn about things, I thought I'd ask here.
Also, for some reference, I'm from so far back that we (sentinels) had the skillsets of Groves, Concoctions, and Metamorphosis (just like the Druids...but we were way cooler).
1. WHY IN THE LOGOS did our skills change?? I want my old skills back, but apparently even the Druids got screwed out of concoctions since it's not a thing anymore. What are my options? I've read up on this whole woodlore and skirmishing thing and it's not really my jam. I'd rather go to the Druids to at least get my grove back.
2. Would anyone be willing to coordinate with me to deliver some food in-game so I can stop passing out (and thus logging out due to frustration)?
3. Are the old gods still around? Lupus? Sarapis? They were my faves...want to make sure
4. At this point, do you think I'm so used to the old ways that it would be redundant to return to the realm (and instead start a different game like Aetolia or Imperian) or actually try to pick up where I left off?
Also - anyone from way back then have any really pertinent advice for me?
