Hi there
 
Hi there!, im Veggi / KC !
I've been meaning to try this game, but im /confused on the gameplay.
If i could get some tips/guides and maybe a disiccion on character i should choose, /friends :]
It seems a bit inactive :x, should i bother playing? But it seems fun though
Thanks!

Hi Veggi. Use this: Wiki Home - Mabinogi World Wiki

Other than that, you'd have to ask others more experienced like Sandrie, Harlequin, or AnnabelleMarie. Hopefully, they'll be willing to help you.

Oh, btw, join Mari server if you don't mind, that's where I'm playing. o/

Veggi 04-17-2011 07:04 PM

Lets hope for the best. If you guys dont mind, id really appericate the help. The game does seem interesting based on the gameplay. What i dont understand really is the characters, are there job advancements. The Rebirth i can kind of relate to a differnt MMO. oh and what server does everyone play in?
Shnao: mk ty!

Harlequin 04-17-2011 07:33 PM

Well, I play in Ruairi server, with the IGNs: Himself (Giant), Saerah (Elf), Limes (Human). AnnabelleMarie also plays on Ruairi server. Much of the SOS Brigade guild here at ggFTW plays on Mari though. I can't attest to their activity since I'm not on Mari, but Annabelle and I play pretty frequently.

If you're starting on a new account, make sure to make a human with that first card. When you make a human, you can use that character to get a free card for an elf and a giant.

There are no job advancements, although recently the 'destiny' system was implemented. Destiny system allows you to pick one of four 'destinies', which have minimal bearing on the game (it makes certain stats grow faster, and makes skills related to that destiny train faster). Example: Warrior destiny makes all melee combat skills grow twice as fast, and gives 0.5 more strength per level-up.

The game itself is actually very active, we just don't have an outstandingly large community for Mabinogi here at ggFTW.

As far as a basic startup is concerned, for all characters there are a few skills you *should* train as soon as possible (I say *should* because nothing in this game is really required of you, it's all up to your preference). You should try to train up Windmill, Refining, and Wild Animal Taming as soon as possible. The reason being is that, as you progress further through the game, these 3 skills become exponentially harder to train (a lot of skills get more difficult, but these are the cream of the crop for late-training difficulty).

Windmill and Wild Animal Taming get more difficult because of an in-game factor known as CP (Combat Power). As you train skills and level up, your combat power rises. As your combat power rises, it becomes more difficult for you to find enemies within a certain range of your combat power to train your skills on.

As for Refining, since it *requires* failures in order to train it, it becomes more difficult to train as your dex rises. For giants it is okay to take your time raising this skill, because they don't have many skills that raise their dex outside of life skills (refining is one of these life skills), but for humans and elves, it is recommended to do refining as soon as possible. I also recommend doing it soon because the market for buying ore fragments is at an all time low (at least in Ruairi, unsure of the other servers).

Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to message me at my giant, Himself, on the Ruairi server.

Sandrie 04-17-2011 07:39 PM

Should you choose to play on mari myself and my friends probably wouldn't mind helping out. My IGN is Sandrie (Mari). We are on at random times though, just shoot me a friend request and I'll accept it when I log on next time.

Harlequin got most of the stuff down, I highly suggest ranking windmill (max) as well and wild animal training (at least r9) ASAP, or you'll end up like me with 1000 CP and having to find things that are over 3x times that. ;-;

Veggi 04-17-2011 09:03 PM

Thank you both for the feedback, i will be Dl'ding the game soon, and will try out the Ruari Server.

*Poke Veggi*

I might join you since I'm MMO hoping right now :v

Veggi 04-17-2011 10:14 PM

You should join me lol !

Mabinogi can be a bit confusing at first, but when you once get it it's quite easy~
I'd love to play with you, but being an european and all kinda makes it hard for me.
Good luck anyway and I hope you'll enjoy the game and get many friends~

Marzai 04-18-2011 06:03 AM

OP: Wait, didn't you already do this earlier...?

/forum/mabinogi-gene...ew-player.html

Eh, either way, I'm still eager to help.

IGNs: Chromegigas (Giant, main), Chromearcher (Elf), Djinnises (Human), Chromeheart (Human).

I use all four of them, almost equally. Just add Chromegigas for now.

-TIPS-

Spoiler!

How long ago was that, I guess i Made a thread forgot i made one, my bad. That was when the game was really confusing and was lost to the point of abyss.

Sandrie 04-18-2011 06:48 PM

Oh yeah, because of that beginner stuff you get free skill resets and 24 hour rebirths untill you hit level 100. The 24 hour rebirth is rather abuseable, just level up exploration level and you'll get a ton of AP...

Gladiat 04-19-2011 02:32 PM

I'll join on Friday since I have a 4 day weekend /o/

Im guessing your in CA, if not oh well, but same here i have a 4day weekend and was going to also planning the same thing. But i did read up on the game, seems very interesting.

Shnao 04-19-2011 09:02 PM

BTW, a good but slow way to make a considerable amount of gold in game is through farming.

Gladiat 04-21-2011 02:04 PM

Going to try out Mari server \o/

xsugarcastx 04-21-2011 02:05 PM

Its comparable to a glitzy runescape. Hope those guides help.

Sandrie 04-21-2011 02:31 PM

Gladiat, if you need any help, just add/message Sandrie. I'll be afk most of the day because of the owl event but I'll be on.

Veggi 04-22-2011 09:48 PM

What is the reccomended age to start at? Should i start young, or Old?
