Okay so after fighting the very website itself to even log into the forums... (Seriously, they need to make it so it says "Account needs verification" instead of "Account info incorrect".)
I can now talk of my little new player's plight.
Hello, I'm that myth, a new player growing in the game.
...On Thor Server. (Chaos server was 90% bots and afk people, I couldn't navigate ANYTHING with how blockaded Eden and Prontera were...)
I've spent about a week leveling and currently am attempting job advancement to Dancer. Buffs and Debuffs interested me.
However, I was clearly not prepared for the hardest task of this, a simple observation if you will.
Are people in this game's community outright incapable of social interaction of any kind?
I don't think I've seen anyone talk or communicate once. Ever.
Closest thing to communication I got was someone spamming emotes near me while I was resting at Orc Village.
They invited me to a party, but apparently the thought of stating what the party was even for was a myth to them.
I know it might scare some of you, but you can talk by pressing enter, typing something, and pressing enter again.
This little fact is tied to my plight you see.
The dancer quest gives 1 of 3 random tasks. 2 of them aren't hard and reasonable.
I didn't get those. I got the 3rd.
So lo and behold, here I am going on a suicide mission to get 10 black hairs from the Super Spoopy Payon Death Cave, but not just any part of the cave, but the 4th level of that hell.
(Are dancers meant to be capable of fighting off demons while giving stage performances??? I get that its an advancement quest but this still seems very bizarre lore wise.)
So what I need is help.
Help even reaching the 4th floor of Payon cave without getting outright swarmed by those annoying hopping undead and bone archers for the 10th time.
I can only be shredded so many times before the potion fund gets low.
Hopefully someone can spend even a trivial amount of time helping out, and maybe give me a better first impression of the community.
(I'm sure you all are nice people, but good lord the endless silence can get frustrating.)
