what annoys mentors most?

Post by K'tilqr(Mrs.MarkB) on Sun Oct 14, 2012 5:13 am

how about -

Changing what new starters get without telling us?

if you download the app from the ANDROID market, from last Tuesday noobs get a substantially better package than they got in the past.

I am not sure of exactly what they now get but I have been told they get:-

a choice of face
a choice of flag colour
a choice of "weapon set"
a skill reset scroll
wood, leather and stone every time they level

please, for the sake of mentors and Help Chat advisors CAN WE GET TOLD WHEN START UP PACKAGES CHANGE.

also what about the poor Apple starters who aren't enjoying the same benefits?

+1

A mentor is supposed to be a knowledgeable person, It doesn't give a great first impression if they don't seem to have a clue about starting out.

Id also suggest a button or link for anyone that taps the 'set number of mentees per day', which takes them to a page with recent changes they may not be aware of....i.e food for kills, and all the above that K'TILQR pointed out

Kinda off topic, but what annoys me most is when people pm me asking how to message me. You'd think it obvious...

its not obvious. it us under a button in the upper right hand corner called more.

most people look for reply when they want to reply to a message not a button called more.
not to mention it took me a while to figure out that new messages were in yellow and there is no really good way of knowing who the message is to/from.

when I send a message most of the time it says from OasisUnknown but not who the message is to. (I know that my most recent messages are on top but new players do not.

Currently new players get a robot guide. It asks what they think their play style is. If they want to be war oriented, gatherers, social players, or trade players, etc. When a player chooses this, it directs them to a skill that will lead them down that path of one of those specializations. Items will be given based on that selection. Yes they get to pick their face, flag color, and hair style but that happens before they ever leave monk island. Nothing mentors really get to advise them on.

So really the only change as to what you advise them is what is new in the pk realm, that food is obtained by hunting instead of (sell 80 wood for 100 food as was the advice when I joined pk). But then we were also selling dragon eggs for 100/120 food each and chi at 90/100 food each... I'm digressing.

I think the real problem is getting the guide to be updated when things are updated as players come to us with questions whether we are mentors or not, we need a reliable guide to refer them to.

Wow, new players get some good things now and really have no reason to grind as much as earlier players. But it is good to know what new updates/changes come out so we can share with mentees or even new KD members.

What annoys me SO VARY MUCH is when I type a long message to them, and they never respond or log on again. Only 2 out of my 30 mentors have actually stayed to play this game. :'(
