As you may have read in announce post #2151, the Academy is currently on its trial run for the council of Duiran. The newbie-only setting for this experience is currently disabled, in order for us to obtain important feedback from the player's point of view. Please utilize this discussion thread for feedback! This is a fairly major change to the new player experience that we are very excited to unveil. Several config options that are defaulted to ON for future newbies will be of benefit - CONFIG QUESTS_ALERT ON, and CONFIG DIALOGUE ON|HIGHLIGHT.
Not a bug:
You will be unable to complete some sections of the Academy if you do not belong to one of Duiran's home guilds (Sentaari, Shaman, Sentinels).
REPICK CLASS is only available to true newbies.
Armor awarded from Aruna's quests currently have 0 stats.
Getting Academy tattoos on a fully-tattooed player is buggy.
Planned content changes:
Increasing the herbs rewarded from 1 per, to stacks of 20. Added.
