New player
So I am downloading the game now and have not played at all yet. Is there a good area/race etc that I will probably be safe playing while I learn a bit about the game and decide the route I want to go?

I know almost nothing about the game and with it obviously having the PvP element all I can think back to is the old Ultima Online days of constant PK's lol.

You will be safe with any race you choose. You have newbie protection to start. Starter areas are really safe. Most people don't roam to kill players especially new. The world is pretty big.

Choose the race you think looks the coolest and go from there.

Get referrals for clans in this thread. Every clan functions pretty different and it's a players market atm because population is stagnant while waiting for new content

Try each race that interest you using a throw away name. Once you delete a character that name is gone and it's hell getting it back.

Play through each race starter quests and follow the chain. The starter quests start from the Counciler in each starter town and will take you to various outposts.

Then decide on your official race using your chosen name.

Pop is low until the next patch is out.  Until then, you won't get pvp unless you seek it out.

Being an ex-UO player you should love this.

A couple of key things:

Most people will use R50 or R60 equivalent gear.
You can buy gear up to R30 from NPC vendors from NPC cities, you do pay top dollar though.

Set up some titles asap. If you are not sure what titles are, ask ingame.
Put the 5th title on rotation early on and use it to make bags, mounts, R0 armor and weapons

Once you get med points from starter quests, use the menu system to spend them.
Decide on a skill that you want to elevate while offline. Personal med points are used to do just that.

Clan med points are not useful to you, except to make it more attractive to a clan to have you involved with them.
You want this because clans will have crafters that will give or sell you gear for less than npc vendors.

Don't get too caught up on crafting your own gear until you have a few weeks invested in the game and know what's what.
See above on how to use the 5th title early on.

Chaos chests spawn randomly on the map. They don't explode. They cannot be trapped by other players. Its always a good thing to open them.

There is local banking. There is no fast travel.

If you kill a certain number of a certain type of spawn, a champion mob will spawn. They hurt. They also give you med points and stat and skill potions that increase stat and skill values (not caps like UO).

Housing is not as good as in UO, costs about 2000 gold per week, but provides a deathport.

I hope the game suits you.

cheers

Devs haven't posted an update on the forums in 2+ months and game hasn't been patched in 6 months. The company that runs this game is currently in liquidation and the server could be shut down any day. Buyer beware. Invest your time with caution.

There is probably hundreds of players that log in every day, but keep in mind:
* most probably spend very little time actually in-game (just do a quick meditation gain and log off)
* world is huge
* there is no teleportation of any kind (except for respawning on death)
* local banking -> if you want gear elsewhere, you need to transport it

When you combine all of that + Ub3rgames' silence and lack of updates for the last 5 months... you end up with half of the world almost dead, and center having some bang (at best you'll find 40 players on a VCP, and even that's a stretch lately)

Considering the game's low price, I'd still recommend giving it a try. And definitely join a clan asap to have some company when you play.

Game is on, pop is very low, some are hopefully waiting for  the patch to play again. The situation is not optimal at all but  if you are starting a chatacter from scratch levelling now would be  a lot safer  than usual. Some guild are still active and can help you with gear and training, depending on your  race. You wouldnt miss other players for  the first weeks.

If patch wont come soon  game will be  dead anyway.

Will it rise again later?? Maybe yes, maybe not.

Hundreds?  That seems a bit exaggerated. I might guess a few hundred(350ish) at most, including alts.  But "hundreds" seems unlikely, not to mention pretty vague.  Like, might as well use the term "tens of," as it brings about the same representation of a vague number.

Einstein, anything over 200 is, technically, Hundreds.  So buy your own words, Hundreds are playing.
