Hey there, @ozarka30! Welcome to Boundless!
It seems your questions have already been addressed, but as for advice; just take your time and learn things at your own pace. It’s tempting for us veterans to shower you with knowledge, but that’d be robbing you of the thrill of discovering what Boundless is all about yourself.

Hope to see you in-game soon! If you’re looking for a settlement to settle in, you’re always welcome in Elop Portas;
