Let's keep it all on a single thread so everyone can share stories.

I visited the Origin New Haven. The funniest thing I experienced was the Swordsmanship trainer, Jockyls, who called me a pansy for refusing the noob swords quest.

*laughs uproariously* :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

It's not so spread out and easier to find all the shops and things. It looks more interesting too.

Old Haven looks better, I like the ruined look, especially the barricades and stuff where it looks like the old inhabitants tried to make a last stand perhaps? It also kind of reminds me of Deathknell in WoW.

OMFG! The parry trainer gives out a truly great shield as a reward, it's called the Escutcheon of Ariadne, has 5 Reflect, 10 DCI, and both Phys and Energy resist in the teens! :shocked:

Hope we get a story of what happened in Old Haven. Like to know what happened to old Uzeraan and his nasty slave, the "Servant of Semidar."

And where did all the mongbats go? :huh:

Here is the new quest reward sword from the Swordsmanship trainer in New Haven:

As you can see, it's blessed and not bad for a longsword. Any noob would be happy to receive it as a reward.

Nice, thanks for posting that Rhus

And I agree, it'd be great for a new player
Maybe they're introducing these items because of the uproar of them removing the old newbie items for new players?
Is the shield also blessed?

I saw the shield equipped on another player, didn't notice if it was blessed or not, I'd presume that it is.

From what I could tell, most of the noob trainers offer rewards of some sort or another, I'd be willing to bet that by accepting all of the warrior-oriented quests you would end up with a nice armor suit, possibly blessed.

The ethy horse and llama are the ones that I have seen that still look ethy lol. All the others, ie beetle, kirin, look like normal mounts so far to me.

I wish there had been more of a story to the introduction of New Haven. First some guy was eating a roast and taking names, now we have a new town. :P

Interesting.

There's a new animation for wrestling too now. You swing with your opposite hand that you would normally hold a weapon/book in. So, if you have a shield equipped, your swing the shield, not the book like before.

And cave walls appear different too.

Thanks again Maddux!

I had a quick peek on test center last night before bed, and it looked pretty decent, there were a few graphical bugs but im sure they look perfect in the KR client. All in all its pretty impressive I will have a good ponder when I get home from work in 10 hours! :)

The Island next to New Haven is absolute empty. From the former ruins there is one secret wall title left.

I searched around half of the dungeons and didnt find obvious changes. Of course the dungeon cave walls, as mentioned above.

They could've made it an option to have "crafted by" and have the correct name. Or just like that.
