New player getting started

#1SocialAnXieTyPosted 7/20/2011 12:49:49 AM

I've heard how addicting and fun this game can be once you get into it, but I've only tried to play it by myself a time or two after catching it during the Summer Sale for $2.50.. and call me stupid, but I'm having a hard time getting started. It's a silly question with a lot of answers, but can anyone give me some tips to get me started?

I'd appreciate any feedback to help a newcomer out. :D

TC, not sure how far along you are but I'd advise looking into the progression guide which I'll link below. It might give you a good idea on what to look into. Also the Wiki is very valuable. Fun to look and find something you want, then figure out how to get it. Goals in this game, to me, or what brings the addiction... Have fun and feel free to ask anything else.
