First impressions mean a lot. I just made a visitor account to get the new user experience and I have some suggestions that I would encourage you to look at as soon as possible to avoid new player frustrations. I'll start with the problems. Main starting quests: Alpha Wolf quest is bugged and causes a lot of confusion and wandering around. Even more confusion for new players trying to get their head around the game in general. It looks like this is a known bug and has been reported. Catching Salmon for Kinsey quest can't be accomplished until you figure out how to unlock the utility bar to drop the fishing skill into. Figuring out how to unlock the utility bar was like trying to find a needle in a haystack with the way that the chat system works right now, not to mention I had to learn from another player who said they spent hours on Youtube watching videos until they figured it out. For a new player who wouldn't know there's a second bar to be unlocked, I can't imagine they would even have a clue to get it on their own. As a "veteran" player I'm still not out of the outskirts after over an hour trying to figure out how to even past the first 2 quests. I couldn't imagine how lost I would be right now if I were new to the game. Here's my suggestions, though I know it's not just a simple fix: Have the second hotbar easier to obtain until the the NPC chat windows are working properly because it's causing problems for the main starter quest right off the hop that you need it for. Or figure out how to make the fishing quest come after you get the non combat bar, or make fishing usable without a non combat bar. Also, need to figure out how to make the alpha wolf quest able to be finished without having to jump through a bunch of hoops (like searching the forums). Without being able to do these quests, these new players are technically stuck and frustrated before they even get started. Now for the positives. (Update) 5/17: First, The Solace Bridge outskirts is a beautiful area. As far as a new player experience, it's leaps and bounds better than when I first started playing. Overall I think it's a great area to start and get your bearings. @Lord British I can definitely see where having the new players wait until they figure out how to get their utility bar and deck assortment makes sense. The minor issue I still see with that currently is that the fishing quest does require the non combat bar. So in a weird way, you're still forcing the players to try to figure out how to get the bar before they may be ready for it. I have noticed with the wolf quest, that it may be more user error than a bug. Without blatantly spoiling anything, know that patience is a virtue. Hopefully the data that's being collected is giving you guys everything you need to make great decisions going forward. Including this post and responses ) Cheers!
