Hi everyone. I've only been playing for a few days so I guess I'm a noob. I'm on the phoenix server usually. I chose to be on the side of the Goddess of Darkness. I am currently level 10. I am playing on normal mode. I've always loved gaming and I finally have a computer that will let me game the right way. I'm a full time mom and i just found when I can have my me time so this is the fist game I've really played in a while besides bf3 on the ps3. And I don't know what to say about me I guess the best way to find that out would be to talk to me and get to know me yourself.
Glad to have you with us. I hope you enjoy your gaming experience. The forums have a wealth of information about how to build up your character, what skills to use, etc.
I see that you started on a normal mode. This is a good mode to use to get to know a character and class. However, the higher in level it goes, the more of a disadvantage it has against hard mode (HM) and ultimate mode (UM) characters, especially if you are into pvp (player verses player). Most players go with HM because you get more stat points than NM (7 instead of 5) and more skill points (4 instead of 3). This enables you to increase your stats and obtain more skills than an NM can. Of course UM gives you 9 stat points and 5 skill points, but there is that nasty business about dieing and not being able to resurrect you character without a priest or a res rune. If you don't have either of those, dead is dead
Regardless of which class you are running, a good website to know about that will help you in quests and grinding is shaiya.cassdodge.com
. This site contains area and dungeon maps and provides the location of mobs on each of the maps, spawn times for bosses, and monster levels compared to your character's level.
So once again welcome, and I hope you enjoy your time on Shaiya. If you have any questions in game most players will be more than happy to help you out. Also, you can ask for a GS (Game Sage) and they will gladly assist you.
