New Player functions:
Ok so #1 it is best suggested to make a double account under your main (@Sebastian_Gogglehelp1 ). I can explain further if you need it.
Now their is a new thing called The Professions
Each of which have different capabilities in battle, and in crafting, and clothing and stuff like that.
Here are the four:
All of these can be listed and explained more in depth in The Professions topic I gave you above.
When you choose a profession with your main, it will level you down to level 1, when this happens, you don't lose all your clothing and items. Although with the weapons, you still have the weapon plans and have them in your inventory, their is a glitch that has been named the too low level glitch. So if you have the ice thrower in your inventory, at level 1, you won't be able to use it because you only get it at level 25, and you shouldn't have it at level 1 if you know what I mean. As I said, it is reccomened to make another account (double) under your main, so you can replay the game with some of the new missions. When leveling down to 1, you will get a couple new missions, but, now as much if you replay the game on top of the missions you already had.
There is a new map, known as the Lagoon, and can be found of off smuggler's cove. The map unlocks, and you get to go to it for the mission, once the mission/ quest is completed tho and you leave, you can't go back in. So as a reccomendation, stay a good while to get some of the items that can only be found here. From the lagoon, their is some fogwork tunnels, and from the tunnels you go to the mines, and from the mines you go to the depths, and from the depths you go to the....... I forgot the name. At the last location, you fight a bigfoot, and by beating him you get the plans for a new weapon known as the cog sword.
In this location, their's a good bit of different items to get, that can only be found there. So get a good collection of stuff, then leave, as well as the cog sword needs to iron ore to build, the rest can be found elsewhere I believe, in the mines, their are a good bit of crates, click a crate, and you get a item. When you want the crates to reset, go into a battle then flee, and they reset. List of new items: Credit to @caleb_Larkmagnet1
The gift other players thing is just something members want to happen, not actually happening tho.
No you can't have more than 1 aethermeter, you can build more than one tho, but your just wasting materials on nothing.
Hope this helps!
