In this second issue of H&T I'll try to give a few general suggestions on races and classes.
A lot of detailed and good works have already been posted in the forums on this matter, so I'm not going to write detailed instructions about what's the best race/class combination (if there's a better one at all). I will however put you in front of the door and open it for you, the next steps are yours to do as the objective of this little space is just that... pointing something out.
Being this the first issue of "Hints & Tips" I'll briefly introduce myself and the News' space I'm responsible for. My name is Umberto (aka Big Boy) and I've been playing WoD for more than a year now. I can say I've played it enough to learn a few tricks that the new player will find very useful and the expert player could have missed along the way.
I'll publish here just a few hints at a time, but I'll try to write down a new issue at least twice a month. Hope some of you WoD News readers will appreciate.
On the 16th of December the new Realm Aberon will open its doors for all players, new and old alike. Rebirth your heroes onto this realm or create new ones from scratch.
Start out with hundreds of other players at Level 1 and use this chance for glory and fight your way to the Top. Rediscover World of Dungeons all over again and find all the hidden secrets only available to legendary heroes. But even if you are not a legend yet, you will find many new Adventures in the Realm of Ezantoh.
Test your strength in one of the new Dungeons or fight your way through the upcoming high-level Quest. Fight off dangerous sea monsters, explore the dangerous caves of the lost dwarven kingdom Barrack Thor, and find out why these strange fighters were so interested in these colorful gems you found.
Join the other Clans of your Realm in their conquest of the northern barbaric lands and experience epic fights with hundreds of your fellow companions in the new Clan War system.
Everyone on Aberon, remember to retire before the 15th of December. On that date, Aberon will close it’s doors and all remaining characters and items will be deleted. So transfer your hero to Xenarthra in time.
Aberon will then reopen on the 16th for everyone. You will be able to create or rebirth your heroes right away. The Dungeons will start 2 days later to give everyone enough time to find a group and be ready for the start of the new round.
