1st step is join a coastal city ask chats for invite. Water hunt all the time use early gold for tonics. Skills combat 3 trood3 troll3 then choose spec skill. Food is easy now its posted for sale for evry 25k you hunt buy 80 food to level use food only to level till at least lvl 30. When land hunting clear all circles chop all kill all trolls to!they drop packs:-) as for new player gear this is where alota players waste gold buying weps and armor. After u get to lvl 10 or so u should have a purse by now and since early gold goes only to food,tonics,1 purse. Save all other ats you gather an use them for trade for food or gold an use that gold to buy a decent weapon or armor/sheild. Best new player gear set is lvl 20ish spear breastplate and sheild.ranged weapons should be secondary to melee upgrades. As a new player its best to spend time hunting and not exploring. Jumping around costs feathers.for evry 30k you hunt buy 80 food soe feathers and a few tonics level up and repeat u will be level 30 in no time

Considering that since this thread started new player strategies have likely changed considerably... and with the new update coming changing things even more... is it time to un-sticky this and start it fresh to avoid noob confusion of reading through a long history of advice which may or may not actually apply anymore?

A tip (for all players, actually) on oil and crystal production - unless you are online 24/7 its much, much better to have lots of wells and huts with no size upgrades (but max capacity upgrades obviously) and 1 golem only per hut/well.

Most people do not visit their wells whenever they are full (for example they hit full while they are sleeping), so lots of oil/crystal is wasted.

Yes, the research for multiple huts/wells is expensive, but it pays for itself very quickly.


Also I no noob should bother with building flags except the 5 - 20 needed at the start to get you going. Join a city as soon as you have 1000 gold, travel to the edge of the city and you are sure to find public flags galore (and if not, ask on help chat for an invite).

As soon as you hit lev 10 - 20) get a dead weapon and go waterhunting.

Skills like cleave, taunt and serenity can really speed up your gold accumulation too.

Just so you know, you can only have 5 oil wells. It changed from unlimited awhile back and anyone with more was grandfathered-in as long as they serviced them weekly.
Crystal Huts also have a max of 5, but to get that many, you need to upgrade at your Research Lab.

Some good threads on oil wells (post 5 well cap):

First, go to trade chat and beg for free stuff. Second, use that free to stuff trade for better stuff. Third, use that better stuff to hunt everything you see. Fourth, sell everything that you collect back to perblue by dumping it, especially if it's an orange feather that you picked up from an orange bird, if you keep that in your pack then you won't be able to level up anymore. Also, crush any diamonds that you forge when possible, this makes two or more diamonds appear in your pack. Once a week go to the trade hub and click on your backpacks and then click drop all. This will keep your character running smoothly. Enjoy!
