    Hi, I'm trying this game after playing WoW for awhile. Just a couple quick questions maybe someone can help me with.

    - How do I tell who is a real person and which are npc's? Is there an easy way to tell that?

    - Is mining a good skill to start with to begin making gold to advance?

    Thanks!

    NPC's usually have yellow names/bars

    Players will usually be red, blue or orange if you are in factions

    Mining is okay, but the real money is in cloth on Siege (IMO)

    shearing sheep is boring as hell, so we relegate it to shard newbies and pay them handsomely :)

    agreed, cloth and leather are the money makers here.

    Have you thought about looking into NEW? www.siegeperilous.net

    Cloth for gold, requires no skills, just time. Some people buy them as high as 500 gold a bolt and people can easily pull in a few hundred k in gold a week.

    Telling apart an NPC from player -

    - If they are yellow, they are a NPC
    - If they have a title in their name, they are usually a NPC - ie John the Mage
    - The absolute way to tell, open their paperdoll, double click on their profile i think it's called, the paper roll on the bottom left. If it opens, they're a player, if it does not open it's a NPC.

    Some real players will snuggle upon to you and snoop your backpack, and
    try to steal...la, some will ignore you while afk... la, some are harmless and
    will talk to you... la, some will just pass you by because they have no time
    for you... la, some are macroing training skills, yes you can tell by sounds...la.
    Some real players are invisible and you can bet they are not npcs...la.
    Some real players are exception to all of these rules...la.

    Thanks the Yew pens are sure nice so far. I made one big mistake though after I sheered some and and took the moongate to magincia where I seem to be stuck as a ghost.

    Not quite sure how to get out of there yet, will have to try later. Tried rezzing a few times and kept getting killed by all those guys in black. At least I now know not to go there heh.

    If you go to where the docks are/were, there's a sparkly teleporter that will take you to Trinsic.
