    Hi,

    I started a week or so ago & have been doing quests in Solace Bridge Outskirts and Soltown.
    When I finished all the quests I could find, I talked to another player who said to to do all 3 of the outskirts areas, so am working on Highvale now.
    It took me a little time to work out the fighting part so I did a lot of reading here on forums to help find the best ways to play & it is much easier now in Highvale. Maybe I am not doing it 'right', but it is working for me right now. Reading has made me think that I should just take small steps & take my time.
    I have always been more of an enjoy the journey before I get to the destination, wherever that is :)

    I am already hooked on this game. The environment is so amazing & the players I have talked to have been friendly & helpful. They even gave me better gear to use! I am enjoying the storyline a lot.

    I am feeling like this is somewhere that I want to take my time to explore.

    Welcome! It sounds like you're on the right path. Enjoying the journey instead of trying to beeline it to the top is the way to go in my opinion.

    Don't miss tomorrow's big fishing tournament, even if you haven't gotten your skills high enough it should be a fun event!

    I haven't even contemplated crafting or fishing yet!
    But I have worked on getting my gathering/mining skills up, which are part of the crafting section.
    I am just going where the quests and new zones for me send me right now, but keeping an eye on my gathering & fighting skills & training up as I go.

    I am enjoying my journey & have had some great chats & advice along the way.
    This Community has been really awesome so far. :)

    Welcome to the SotA family, Deja Moo. You have the right idea while playing this game: just take your time and have fun. I've completed all the quests but I've found the most enjoyment just wandering around different scenes and finding many pleasant surprises (hidden quests, hidden areas, etc.)

    Don't be afraid to start groups asking for fun things to do if you start getting bored / lonely out there. It's a big world.

    But also, don't be afraid to start your own asking for help doing various things, especially boss fights that are designed for groups.

    Most of what you'll see in LFG are either fishing trips or Upper Tears (UT) runs, which are not appropriate for the newest players.

    I have really enjoyed my experience so far.
    Either searching the forums or using google to help guide me along my way...

    But I am at a point, where I am kind of feeling fed up, trying to figure out what I am meant to do next?
    I have been upgrading skills that I want to use at the adventure trainer,
    & have accepted quests that I have been presented with, through conversations with npc's in my journey. (while following the questline & the goals that are listed on the left of my screen)

    But I am finding that sometimes the internet guides & what my quest log tell me I should do (for a specific quest-line) do not agree...
    (specifically, the Love quest)

    I am feeling really lost, annoyed & confused, as to what I am supposed to do next :(
    The Guides I have & the quest goals on the side of my screen (for the same questline) don't seem to agree & lead me forward.
    Maybe, this isn't the game I am meant to play....

    Hey I felt exactly like you, it’s partly because some of the quest themselves are bugged, other times because it’s plain confusing, and just like you I was reading guide after guides to figure out how to proceed.
    If none of your friends are available to help you in your list or not online, I also found it very useful to use the Universe chat - which you need an orb for in your inventory to use - people are usually very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. It’s a good tool, don’t give up

    Every time you see someone in the game running around with a Shroud, they were able to complete all the quests and finish the game. So whether or not some are slightly bugged or not, it doesn't prevent you from persevering and completing the game.

    Also it's a really good feeling. Shroud requires you put effort in and don't give up if some things are difficult. In that way it is "Old School".

    What specifically are you having a problem with the Love Quest?
