I figured...especially with the influx of new adventurers arriving at the docks....a Guide holding links to valuable information would aid many new citizens[and maybe some old]....and may just make their early days easier, and turn them into life-long adventurers.

May I also suggest someone explain how the healing shrines work? Last night my guild had to take 10 minutes to explain to a 3rd level character how the heck to use a shrine.

There is a starter quest before you hit stormreach that explains shrining.

Does anyone have a link to the European DDO web site's Compendium ?
It is much more up todate then ours.
Also are there any plans to update ours ?

Thanks

Main problem there is most people are only take the training that goes with their class[l did that myself:(]...lve even know high level characters, who make an alt...and just jump straight to the city, skipping their new class training...then being stumped later on lol.

Maybe someone can make a Healing Guide[shrining, what classes can use healing wands at what levels, Heal/Repair skill etc etc] to link to, l just add it here?

I don't know if this is still being maintained, but if it is, a number of the entries are dead links now.

Furthermore, if anyone is going to update the above post, I'd also suggest changing this link:

to point to here:
http://d20srd.org (http:/d20srd.org/)

Not only is it easier to remember, the site is (in my humble opinion at least) better laid-out and easier to navigate.

WaterWorks. Why do you think Stormreach has so many sewers for? And why do you think Arlos constantly has to get himself lost in there?
