These are some of the basic things that have helped me in ArcheAge Alpha to present. These are not mine. Also feel free to add any resource you think is an asset to your game that I've left out.

Combat Calculator (http://arche-base.com/builds/generator): Hey you're gonna be fighting. Whether PVPing or just leveling so plan it out and get good at it.

World Map (http://www.archebox.info/map): Where you're gonna be fighting/building....it's the world.

ArcheAgedatabase.net (http://archeagedatabase.net/us/item/19965/): Before asking a question in faction and ending up getting a bunch of dumbass answers back to ya, check here and save yourself the hassle. This will have all items in the game, quest, titles, professions...(It's the Thottbot of ArcheAge;) **Search bar is at the top left of Logo**

Trading (http://eloth.org/tradeprofit/): Want to know what turning a trade pack in will bring ya in different places are? Because sometimes trading a pack in one destination at a payout of 100% is more than a payout at another location at 130% payout;).

And the last one I'd recommend is maybe finding a GOOD Guild. Notice I didn't say a big guild(My Guild only has 7 players currently). Zerg Guilds, "People who spam Guild invites at starting zones" I've found generally have no depth and end up being a clusterfudge that caters only to the loudest people over time, I mean would you invite 200 people you didn't know into your home and try to plan/talk things out? If you're smart, generally not. And I would recommend finding a Guild that offers support in the area of what you want from your game. Whether that's PVP, PVE, Crafting, Trading, Role Playing...Whatever, just make sure your Guild suits your needs and not the other way around. And when it's not working out for ya, you'll know when this is, to move on in your search till you find it.

I just wanted to try to put something helpful and positive in the forums right now. As it needs it;)
I look forward to seeing you in game. Be safe all.

Few trades today, so good possibility. But when we get the 7 farmhouses and LFarms up, then you'll probably see us everyday along the trade routes as we are spread across 3 zones:).

This is a great post, all things I've decided i can't live without. To your point about guilds: if you are looking for a pvp guild, look no further than Ascension. We are looking for hardcore, veteran pvpers for a limited number of spots. Any class is welcome but we are always looking for healers/bards. We do accept a limited number of pve oriented people to fill various dedicated roles. If you like crafting and want to be fed endless amounts of mats, look no further!

Lastly, we are building a highly organized. Highly structured unit, a family, a clan. If you want to decimate a zerg with a minimal amount of skilled dedicated players that you can trust with your life? Ascension is it. No we are not long time friends that will exclude new members. We all found each other here in AA and so far have an amazing group of ppl. This is a rare and unique opportunity, don't miss out!

Msg me for info.

I think it's flippin' weak that I'm unable to add somebody to my buddy list. How do I PM my friends on the forums?

The feature is integrated, why not activate it?!?!?

p.s. - It would be really nice to use this kind of resource.

Nice link for the Wiki page at Gamepedia. With it's forward layout, I've found it is faster to find out things like about mounts than it is at ArcheAge database site. I believe the database site's strength is it's listing of game items. Now it will be interesting to see which updates faster. Thanks Cowboy;).

There is also an In game wiki you can access from settings menu. Though it really needs somone to add stuff from the other 2 pages before its useful.

Appreciate the reminder VrTess! You'll probably find this funny, but in Alpha it didn't work, so I haven't tried to use it since..lol. Will look into this and it should be the quickest to update changing data. Thanks:)

That is by far the most useful tool on the list IMO. I use it several times a day for myself and my Guild. Sidenote::if ya ever forget this page/lose link, you can do an advanced search on the forums for "Basics" and this will pop up. Currently it's the only one:). I apologize for not answering sooner the tractors got built and things have been busy:).

Also Manderlla, I liked your signature so much I copied it;).

The BASICS you need to succeed. Updated18OCT14:Added ArchAge Wiki/Land Tax Calculator Thanks to USA Cowboy and Avengingdog for these.

These are some of the basic things that have helped me in ArcheAge Alpha to present. These are not mine. Also feel free to add any resource you think is an asset to your game that I've left out.

Combat Calculator (http://arche-base.com/builds/generator): Hey you're gonna be fighting. Whether PVPing or just leveling so plan it out and get good at it.

World Map (http://www.archebox.info/map): Where you're gonna be fighting/building....it's the world.

ArcheAgedatabase.net (http://archeagedatabase.net/us/): Before asking a question in faction and ending up getting a bunch of dumbass answers back to ya, check here and save yourself the hassle. This will have all items in the game, quest, titles, professions...(It's the Thottbot of ArcheAge **Search bar is at the center of main page, but on all other pages, it's at the top left of the logo** Also has a drop down bar for various grouped items.

ArcheAge Wiki@Gamepedia.com (http://archeage.gamepedia.com/ArcheAge_Wiki) Forward layout to get at information quickly on various grouped topics. Submitted by USA Cowboy


Trading (http://eloth.org/tradeprofit/): Want to know what turning a trade pack in will bring ya in different places are? Because sometimes trading a pack in one destination at a payout of 100% is more than a payout at another location at 130% payout.

18OCT14 Update:
ArcheAgefurniture.com's Tax calculator (http://archeagefurniture.com/archeage-tax-calculator/) To know exactly what your taxes are going to be changing your property layout.submitted by Avengingdog


And the last one I'd recommend is maybe finding a GOOD Guild. Notice I didn't say a big guild(My Guild only has 7 players currently). Zerg Guilds, "People who spam Guild invites at starting zones" I've found generally have no depth and end up being a clusterfudge that caters only to the loudest people over time, I mean would you invite 200 people you didn't know into your home and try to plan/talk things out?
