Well, I hate it. Back in UO REN, there was a training dungeon. After you did that you went to a newbie-only Haven. Then Haven became public with some massive changes to where much of the stuff was located. Now it's just been "destroyed"? Jeez!

more info to overload someones brain. when in a party and you type /t# where # is the number assigned to the player in party, you send a message to that player only.

And the blessed stuff got nerf'd already. The only item that is still on the powerful side is the gift from inscription. If you see it, you will know why I start with 49 inscription on every new charactor I made :) I think I need to dbl check the sheild though, I sware I saw a Str requirement of 95 on it on one of my charactors that got it before they changed it down some. A few of the items seem to have a decently high Str requirement for a new charactor. One thing I would like to see changed is to make it 50.1 or 51 skill to get a reward sence most new charactors would make their template one of the prefab ones and not an 'advanced charactor'. I am glad they don't accept soulstone useage when under a New Player Quest anymore, but I think buying skills is a little strict.

As for my thoughts on the town itself, it really does look nice and would have liked a better backround story on it. (and take down the doors on the bank! Make it a pavilion please! hehe) Old Haven is definatly the place to train magic resist now. The spectoral whatchamadoddles cast resistable spells only, no damage spells. So if you stay a few steps ahead of them, you can have a chain of like 10 following you and can easily get into the 70-90 magic resist levels with protection cast. I might even try to train a pet or two there in magic resist. :D

I think we do need the story to be built up but as someone noted they are still finishing the quest instructors and troubleshooting bits of it... I did notice the huge spawn rate myself while messing about on TC with a new character, and it got kind of annoying, especially since outside of town the greater mongbats will aggro and if you aren't careful a new player can be surrounded by them pretty fast. I'm pretty sure the boglings aggro too. Didn't check anything else, was too busy trying to run away with my newb mage, I hate spells fizzling! :P

My only real complaint is that I still haven't seen a stable in Haven and new players really should have a place to get a cheap mount - I always bought a horse or got out my tamer quick for my new characters, and it'd be convenient to have a stable somewhere in town... unless I missed it when I was wandering the other day? Not to say walking isn't good enough but especially for the impatient ones, it's nice to have the option of a horse.

Not sure what you are referring to. Can you give a little more detail about the dungeon?

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.


This is where I got the impression that there were dungeons in New Haven. Sorry if this is an obvious mistake...I'm a complete noob!

No problem. At this time the only "dungeon" ("dungeon" meaning where you can always find monster spawn) around New Haven is the "old" Haven :) .

Which shard are you playing on? We are more then glad to try and help you out.

Thanks for the help!

I was surprised to wake up one morning and see it had all changed, I am not sure what happened. It looks good except the guy spamming in the centre. I think they are still working on it.

Greetings... for those that dont know me, i play on catskills.

Haven gave the Gentle Rest Inn... that is our small guild, the chance to implement a continuous training system... making sure any and all players could finish their characters faster... then we called for the help of the veterans, both rpers and ooc players... so the young ones could learn more... we got the visit of an EA representative, maybe a coincidence that he went to Haven when we were in full spin... and since then things are flowing smoothly... right now we have all the traning systems working... even if i got banned from stratics for arguing they should be posted seperatly... and tried to defend my perspective... anyhow, 24 hours later one of the posts is there... which brings me to my question...

how does the community sees a guild that does what GRI does?

and of course... we're trying to have a point system in haven... so we can throw all the extra items to the trash and collect points so we have house improvement, new statues... fountains... hum, maybe we should call it Haven Urban Tax System...

TY!

ONE CIRCLE!
