Just as a word of warning, if you make a new character, I recommend staying in the newbie zone until job level 10, simply because it's hell to level outside the towns now, with all the branch summoned monsters running rampant (for example: Bapho, Tanee, fallen bishop and Beelzebub ALL in the map south of Prontera...wtf)
It's ridiculous. I've actually made it my in game goal to make a guild that exists to kill wayward MVPs.
Baa baa black sheep have you any booze? No sir, no sir, I'm a....sheep~
