So I wanted to create an experimental character on Siege, and am having quite a fun time at it, apart from the fact that I haven't seen a single other player. However, I have a few issues with starting there that make life a little bit extra difficult. 1. I can't find any sheep (or cotton). This means I can only buy bandages 20 at a time unless I can find the time to work the bandage spawn on the healer up. This means that using healing or veterinary skills will be quite impossible either for a long time or until I can find a good samaritan who will take me to the other side. Possible solution: make boura-fur weave-able. 2. I can't find a place to tithe. This means that chivalry is not an option. For me this isn't an issue as my plan does not involve chivalry, but if I wanted a paladin-goyle, it would be game breaking unless I could find that good samaritan (remember, I can't recall to the other side, which would mean I would need a ride both ways, and I can't get through the abyss having no fighting skills to speak of). Possible solution: Tell me where to go? (There's another thread here on the same subject, so I would answer there first) Or add in an ankh if there isn't one already. 3. The lack of mages in the Royal City means I can only get a few reagents at a time. I actually don't mind this much, since I could easily build up the vendor-reagent spawn and just haven't had the gold for it yet. But for other people, this could be an issue. Possible solution: None really needed once the gate is working. I could just pop over to Moonglow and buy reagents there. 4. I can't for the life of me find a spawn which I can handle as a low end character in Ter Mur which doesn't have either toxic slith or silver serpents. I have compensated by taming ruddy boura to do my work for me, but it's definitely counter-productive when training skills. Possible solution: I need to explore more. I'd rather not have to return to mainland-Britannia for my training purposes, but I may be forced to do just that. Conclusion: Starting a new gargoyle character on Siege with no friends/resources to help is hard. Personally, I highly recommend it for those looking for a challenge. I'm not sure if these issues really NEED looking at, since activating the moongate will solve them all in an instant. I am rather curious about the new player experience for gargoyle characters on the other shards though. If I have issues after years of play, the new player who hasn't gotten the hang of the game yet may find it too difficult.
