I put several items in the donations weapon rack at the start of each reset. Most regulars leave em for those in need. The server is a bit tough to start out, at first especially if you are a mage, but it can be done. Read some signs and also talk to all there in the ruins. Do not go too far into caves until you equip in Micidal (north about 5 maps). You will find everything you need along the way to make it there. You will soon find that after a bit, the goblins will not hit you and you can out last their arrows as you close in to kill em.
WELCOME ABOARD. I'll try to find you on soon.
