I thought the video tutorials were great. I plan on buying the game after the patch is released this weekend, and I now feel much more comfortable with the prospect of starting the game, armed with the overview of the features and interface that the tutorial provided.

I was going to suggest that you post a link to the tutorial on your Admissions page, but I took a look this morning and saw that this has already been done. :)

I'm really looking forward to experiencing the game for myself. :)

Recommend you make a html or text version of this guide.

For many reason, I dont like pdf files. I'd like something light and easily edittable.

Laclongguan;

Alright- next version of the manual I think we can produce a version which is html. Maybe I will talk to Draigh about putting it on the wiki, or something similar.

If you can give me the raw text, I'll put it on.
And links to the pictures if you want those added.

I was wondering if you might do a guide for crafting/Artifice? I understand that a new system (or something along the lines) might arrive with the 3rd DLC, so maybe a guide that took post 3rd DLC as a frame of reference?

People who didn't need people needed people around to know that they were the kind of people who didn't need people.

Legate I'm sure you really busy doing other stuff, but what do you think about doing some video walkthroughs on some of the more "advanced" stuff. For example, I really want to a guy based around item crafting, but I am really having a hard time understanding it.

Futhermore, a walkthrough on some of mechanics would be nice also. How spell casting and skill rolls are really made, how buffs work, and maybe throw in somewhere that we should save before the end of the year if we want to continue on to year 2 :P It would be nice if there was an auto save for that too :(

Just an thought and if it doesn't happen I'm sure the info will make it to either the forum, wiki or both at some point.

Schwarzbart;

As far as I aware, it is, yes. At least, we haven't had any problems in test.

The real difficulty is finding your ingredients. :P
