okay - time to explore your first home base to discover the wonderful world of istaria!
when you pop up on the new trismus from skalkaar island, you are in a valley. on your right and left are caves (which we will talk about later), slightly behind and to the left is the port back to skalkaar island, and in front of you is a paved road leading to the town of new trismus proper.
when you come up the road, in front of you in the center of town, you will see the shrine. i recommend you bind to it, as it will become necessary for more than just quests. however, this is not an immediate need - you will get a quest that teaches you about binding, if you are totally new to the game. if you want to bind now, just do the normal select and right click, and choose bind to object. checking your character page will always show you where you are currently bound.
it's been a little while, so you may not remember that you actually have a parting task from karkath to greet the consigner on nt. in the game towns and settlements, consigners and pawn brokers are often found together, making it easier to buy and sell. on individual plots, alts can choose one or the other, and they may not be found in close proximity.
on nt, milicent the consigner and geoff the pawnbroker are found under a tent on your left as you exit the port valley (in the screenie, you can see the tent in the extreme left center, just beyond the large dragons). when you approach, you will get the tutorial screen - read if you need! - and see milicent and geoff. greet milicent as usual and listen to her speech welcoming you to the big world. she also points you back down the road thru the valley to consult with the dragon trainers in the caves.
you may notice your active quest journal is now empty. we are about to change that!!!! when we come back, you will start your endless journey thru istaria, the best lil mmo in town! see ya soon!
