I know this is a pain, but maybe someone can find a bit of time to help me a bit... First off, i've searched the forums for some answers, but found it very difficult because 'i think' there has been changes to the starting area over the years. well anyway, here's my status. I started out a character and he was created in Trammel and got a couple of skill quests ... the killing starts Ok, I finished the quests (the respectiv skills are now over 50%) Question 1 Skills in other threads go up to 120. Is this respectiv to 120%? Question 2 I got the Taming, Animal Info & Vet skills and tried taming ... anything, without any succes. Is it possible to tame on the starting island? or maybe i'm doing something wrong... (mark animal dog, bear, or whatever. click skill = msg: this animal cannot be tamed, or with info skill = msg: this is not an animal??!!??). Question 3 what is a realistic skill lvl to aquire before leaving the island? and where is the next stop? Question 4 Everyone talks about insuring, but i couldnt find any NPC that can do this. Is it only relevant after leaving Trammel? Tons of other questions, but i'm sure if these are answered, i'll be able to figure alot out by myself... thx in advance G.
