When you create your character, some tutorial quest will automatically help you to start playing with basic task (like talking to npcs, getting some items and return them, …). Theses tutorials are pretty well done and does not need particular helps (but maybe I will write something about it later).

You will quickly be led to the Main story-line quest, which is really simple to follow until lvl 120 and more (lvl 120 can be reached in a couple of hours)

Anyway, you will soon be frustrated by not having your best equipment because you don't know where you can find/buy it, or it's too expansive.

General tips

Everytime you have to go to another city, buy some goods (all your ship can carry) to sell them to the next port. This is an easy way to have more silver coins, and level up your Eloquence skill
