So I got my email (yay!) downloaded the installer, installed and patched.
Ok, so I'm creating a character and I have no idea what any of the stats effect what in game. That would be nice to know. Is there a list somewhere or are we all just guessing for now?
I have a few other issues about character creation but I posted that elsewhere.
So now I'm in-game and I've created a few land bridges across river and lakes (joy!) and I notice I'm getting low on food and water. Ok, well when I step into water I get a water icon in resources, but clicking on it doesn't seem to do anything and it especially doesn't appear to make me drink. So whats the trick to eating and drinking?
Next I take a look at my other crafting skill, toolmaking. I've read in another post that maybe just the tools aren't in for the crafting skills other than basketry and lumbering. Ok, I can accept that but when I go make a character with basketry skill I appear to need a needle and scissors to actually produce a finished product. Do I need to get these from a tool crafter who doesn't have the tools to make them? Or is there something else I'm missing?
Maybe someone could put together a "Tips for first login" thread and get it stickied. I expect it would be a bit fluid since everything is changing rather rapidly, but I couldn't find anyone to answer my questions on irc. Is there another place to find answers like this other than waiting for an answer on the forums?
Other than the above issues, the game is looking good. Just a few key points I couldn't figure out on my own. Maybe a pdf manual would be nice with the installer?
