    Hi, I played a very long time ago but practically forgot everything. Was thinking of resubbing and joining on Cats due to hearing that the extreme high pop on Atlantic can be a bit of a pain to get a house and items are extremely expensive. So my question are:

    1-Are there any nice folks that would be willing to mentor me to help me relearn game?

    2- Is this server somewhat active or is it dead?

    3- DO people pvp on this server at all?

    4- And last but not least what build is best when starting out and how long does it take to get my skills high enough to start having fun pve and pvp? Thank you all..

    1. Yes, there are many helpful people. One of my members is interested in helping you out.
    2. This server is active AND dead. depends on the time of day, the season etc.
    3. Yes there is active pvp. You can find some of it via Yew, but a lot of times you have to work for it (run a spawn and announce it etc). But once it happens... it can last for hours. Currently there are 3 resident alliances that fight, and some randoms from other servers that show up here and there.
    4. One of my guys, whom is at work currently, but wants to help, can give you all the painfully technical answers to this question. I just like to grunt and smash stuff... but as a rule, it doesn't take to terribly long to get on your feet.

    Well, you can argue with what Blunt Logic says, but then Giggles will have to kill you.

    Which is why Tai's younger brother Un Buk El is known for the saying 'The once bitten cookie is better than no cookie at all'.
