Out of my league?

    Hello all,

    I am a somewhat new player and have been familiarizing myself with ruleset on Atlantic.

    That being said, this shard sounds interesting and challenging.

    Would I be totally out of my league starting a character here?

    If not - how about a stealth archer? Seems like hiding / stealth could be a good survival utility.

    There's a big support network to usher you into the culture. You'd be fine. :)

    Join NEW2, Newborn on Siege and get some protection and help your first month.
    Siege is a very peaceful place vs Atlantic year 1097, where I started, before Trammel rules was added to the game

    If you ever thought you'd like to have lived in the Old West, try Siege. It feels different here. A player can carve out a reputation for themselves or live in solitude. The smaller population on Siege allows you a chance to become known for who you are; good, bad, helpful, considerate, hateful -whatever you want to be, you can be on Siege. Welcome, stranger.

    Reminds me of Carlsbad Caverns, after walking quite a while and going down -800 ft elevation from the entrance, you're greeted by a gift shop. LOL

    To answer the OP, you'll be fine on Siege. Being new, exploring is probably going to be a lot of fun, and stealth will be your friend to explore the unknown (and also recover your corpse from a Paragon camping it) ;-)

    from my short time on siege definately a good crowd of people willing to help and feel free to ask. one thing ive learned while playing here, general chat isn't evil like it can get on atlantic at times hehe.
