So I signed up for this game about three days ago on mobile without any idea of what I was doing. I figured you veterans could appreciate how lost I am. (It’s made out of like 4 (or 5?) cities though, so getting lost is pretty understandable, right?) So here it is: a summary of my thoughts.
This game is made of stories and there is skill leveling. I can handle that, no prob. But wait?! I can only try an action one time and need an item to try again if I fail? What if I need to apply that item beforehand?? There’s like a 80% chance of permanent homelessness! How am I going to find a place to live??? (I then ground my persuasion up to the much more respectable level of 12 and decided that a 64% chance of a lifetime of vagrancy was a reasonable gamble and am now living in a place that probably smells like old, brine-dipped mothballs.)
Grinding rats is boring and why does every quest drop something different? Are they all useful?? (Proceeds to hoard everything, who knows when you’re going to come across another set of prison manacles for the low, low price of free.)
What is a Starveling Cat and why are people obsessed with it?
Beware anyone whose name starts with Mr.
Where are these candles coming from?? (No seriously, on mobile there isn’t a countdown unless you click it, so I kept wondering why I had so many since I expected them to refresh at midnight.)
Whoops! Some of the stories are opposing. I hope I signed up for the right one. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
So apparently, there’s a festival on now. I’ve got quirks to level and fish to catch. (I caught a whole four fish last time!). The downside is that I’m…probably failing everything?? I keep getting wounds and nightmares and I can’t find the to guy to throw fish at to fix it. …Do I have to charge through a pack of drownies to get there? They’re the only thing at the Fruits of the Festival where I’m pretty sure the guy is supposed to be. I keep clicking on them to see if the guy will show up and my nightmares are at about 5 now.
DO NOT DESTINY. DO NOT! <–from the forums
I’m sure there’s more, but off the top of my head those are my first few days in the Neath.
