    Default nOOb questions

    Just got the game, and after reading some of the posts below I can relate: "I'll play for another 10 minutes"...."What do you mean it's been 3 hours?"



    But in that limited time I've come up with some questions that I can't get anyone in-game to answer so I thought I'd try here.



    1) When I look at the world map, and see a facility with a %, what does the % mean?



    2) My MAX armor takes a hell of a beating, short of dieing and re-spawning, can it be repared?



    Those are the big ones, thanks for any help.

    1) % is the NTU left percent of the base. When it gets to 0, the base goes neutral. You need to use an ANT to go to a warpgate, collect nanos, then go back and refuel the NTU silo in the courtyard.



    2) Maxes can be repaired by an engineer with their handheld repatching tool. You can't do it to yourself however. Also, adv medical stations can repair armor in addition to health.



    G`luck!

    I got another n00b question to add to this. Can you only pilot a reaver in your newbie armor? I bought the Reinforced Med armor cert and now I can't pilot my reaver in it. Which armors can you pilot in?



    edit: Since I screwed up I think I will probably restart my character. Trying to plan my certs out now. I want Reaver, Gal, Repair, and some sort of armor so if I do have to land and get out I can defend myself.

    There's 4 "infantry" armors:



    Standard

    Agile

    Reinforced

    Infiltration



    There's also MAX suits.



    All the Infantry suits except the Reinforced can drive all vehicles. Reinforced armor can drive all the "open top vehicles" and man ANY gunner or passenger position.



    Agile is the standard grunt armor, its available from the get-go and should ALWAYS be put on over Standard. If you're going to Reaver, I suggest just wearing Agile. If you want to spend the 2 cert points, you can wear Infiltrator armor and fly around and hope the enemy don't see you sneaking away when they blow you up. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D">



    Here's a list of the things Reinforced CAN drive:

    -Basilisk

    -Harrasser

    -Thresher, Enforcer, Marauder (Empire "Heavy Buggies")

    -AMS (I think)

    -ANT (I think)



    Might be wrong on those last two, but that's about it (I have this feeling I'm forgetting something...). Note that in Reinforced you CAN mount ANY gunner posistion. So while you couldn't drive a tank in reinforced you could man its cannon.

    Ok guys thanks for the tips. Think I'll go with Reaver, Gal, InvisOsuit, repair, haxorz. (Lots of certs eep)



    edit: Actually after playing a few days I think I will have multiple characters for different jobs. Easier to manage and focus my certs.

    One more question. I have several characters now and been having a blast but I am wondering. What happens if one empire locks all continents? Is there anyway for an empire to invaide anothers sant? I'd think not but wish we could.

    At the moment you cant invade other factions sancturies but they are looking to introduce that in the near future.



    When you lock all continents its just a matter of time before the bases start getting captured back.

    another tip if your going to be flying your reaver alot I'd have a favorite set up that is full of reaver missles



    When you spawn your reaver go to the trunk and exchange the bullets for more missles then in between fights after you've used alot of missles you can land and put the other 2 boxes of missles and the bullets you took out if there's room.



    That's what I do, when I spawn and know I'll be using the reaver.

    BTW - you don't need to restart your character, just 'unlearn' the certs you no longer want. The 'unlearn time' is in RL, so log, go to sleep, and by the next day you have your points back to learn what you want.



    Personally, I wish I could use my joystick to pilot my reaver (I have lots of programable buttons and the PoV hat). Right now, Joysticks don't work well for stuff; and as usual, it's on the SoE 'To Do' list (ie fix Joysticks so they work well).



    I do wish they'd solve some of the lag and continent crashing issues quicker. I realize thje game just went live, but it' still annoying to get in the middle of a pitched battle, blowing away Tanks, Infantry, and the hovering Galaxy just to see



    "You have left the Game World"



    And then you can't get back in for a few minutes, and when you do, you're either at Sanctuary, or rolled back to 5-10 minutes before. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":(">
