So, I was going through Heroes Discussion, and noticed that my old Guide I was making kinda got abandoned by me. So, before I get back to updating it again and such, figured I'd ask - Do you think there is the need for another Beginner Guide, with how things are nowadays? If so, I can get to work revamping it sometime soon.

Also, if yes, what would you want to see? I plan on having the following, as of yet.
  • Rules
  • Terminology
  • Whitelisting
  • Commands
  • Heroes
  • Outside links/Other servers

Yes, I think there is a need for one that is not only linked in chat, but explains everything short and sweet, giving appropriate links to places on the website.
If we were to make one, I think we would have to make it a lot less sloppy than the ones before hand. Ie mine and yours TheMormon



I will make one, and I'll do it before the end of tonight.

It okay if I post the rough copy here for feedback?

Under Heroes section you should post the perks for specializing again in your primary class and all the info about it becsuse the wiki does not talk much about it. You should include pros and cons for spevializing again.

I'd say the sloppy part of mine was Heroes, since I had plans to use Photoshop or Illustrator to do it fancier, but decided against it. But yeah, you can work on something, post it here or PM to me, and I can work on something too. I was going to have mine more expanded than short ones, but yeah. Still organized with sections and subsections, anchors, etc.,

I don't want to take usefulness away from Wiki - It would just be descriptions of different classes. Wiki should still be a main source.

We can also re-clarify this in the wiki too...

Hmm, not quite sure what we could do... If we don't already, we could form a FAQ that we could have a short link to. EX:

How do you choose your class?
/hero choose <class>

How do you choose a profession?
/hero prof <profession>

How do you get a class title in front of your name?
Master the class and /title list to see what's available.

We could do something sort of like that, I'm keeping track on questions that are asked too often.

Over the last week I redid a lot of signs at tutorial island. It would be interesting to see if any of the questions are happening less often now.

One error I know I've left there - /ch r instead of /ch re - must return to fix.

How do you choose your class?
/hero choose <class>
Moving on from the basic commands to how players select a path, I'd really like to see a quiz in the format that MsGigi set up here available somewhere to new players - and old, for that matter. Whether tute island, guides, wiki, whatever. Wherever it is most likely to be seen and used.

I asked Kainzo about it and he suggested it be set up as a maze.

Wouldn't it be easier to have a forum thread explaining all of the commands, in a big list A-Z?
example:

/hero choose <class> (Chooses your primary class, Warrior, Healer etc...)
/hero who <class> (Lists all the players with that class online)


edit: Maybe this was almsot what Scycor said :3

Guys, keep in mind, We cannot do *every* single command. This guide should have the bare essentials *only* like what important commands they should know, rules, White listing process, appropriate links and how heroes work. Anything more is unneeded and is a waste of text and time.
Mine is coming along well, but I'll need to revise it and such because I wrote on notepad.
