After fumbling my way through the new Catacomb's newbie quests on my scout, Favre, in DAoC, I finally got rolling after level three and the new Catacomb's instanced task dungeons really helped.
My impressions so far:
1. Catacombs newbie quests make 1-5 enjoyable!
2. The task dungeons are great for solo gamers like myself and can be relatively easy to complete.
3. The graphics are a good upgrade, scratch that, GREAT upgrade.
4. The community on Gareth/Albion is nice. No asshats to be found, yet. Keyword being yet. Did you get that yet???
On a side note I have switched over to 12 hour shifts 4 days a week for work. That means a lot of my gaming time is now being devoted to sleeping :( The good thing is I get 3 days off a week now... hmmm...
