    Why do you all think its better here than being on Calypso? If i end up staying here i would like to know if its better for someone just starting out.

    I don't know if it is better. However I will offer some points that recieve some positive feedback.
    1. New Player Experience missions get good feedback.
    2. Anecdotal reports that skilling on arkadian mobs is very cost effective
    3. Arkadian TT weapons are very eco
    4. Arkadian community is generally friendly and helpful.
    5. Mobs are generally only of one type - so much easier to pick the right gear

    In Caly's favour I will offer that it has:
    1. very diverse range of mobs especially for low level players
    2. very large economy (I would rank Arkadia as number 2 economy)

    Regards,

    Not to forget the Arkadia Developers (David and the A-Team ) care way more about our wishes and problems as everyone else....
    most of us choosed Arkadia for our new home for this reason ....

    I chose to have Arkadia as my home planet after beeing on Calypso for looong years. I chose to move here, only because I trust in the Arkadia devs more than I do in the way bigger team of Calpyso.

    Calpyso has a lot more missions than Arkadia, but this is something relativley easy to fix by A-Team. Plus most Calypso missions are just pure boring grinding missions.

    RT is said to have "story" missions too, but it's a dead planet compared to Clapyso and Arkadia, so definately not something for a new player.

    A few other points to bear in mind on Arkadia

    - currently the only planet you can do TREASURE HUNTING on :D
    - markup on low-level creature hides and other common drops are often better than they might be on other planets - this means better overall return for low level starters and links with "more cost-effective" as per KJ above.

    I agree, the Arkadia developers are the best, and the low level mobs here have much better loot than on any of the other planets. If you want to do mining, it's easier for a newbie to mine higher markup ores here than on the other planets. Add to that the smaller community and I think it's an ideal place to start.

    I recommend visiting all the planets in time, especially if you're the type who likes to explore, but as a place to get your basic skills and experience, I think Arkadia is best and most economical. You'll have a lot more fun exploring the other planets if you get some basic hunting skills down first so that you can use more than just the TT weapons.

    Actually i'm pretty sure RT and cyrene mobs have higher markup.But it's a lot harder to sell your stuff there.

    Markup of things that people payed premium prices out of curiosity is non sustainable.
    I believe that there is a couple of mobs that would be interesting for a new player to hunt in ROCKtropia, and one in Cyrene (I don't know any worth it in NI).

    yea arkadia is like cheers everybody knows your name and ppl work together and help each other out. its like the old days when ppl were real pionears and greed was not a factor. the devs are great. we ask for a race track we get it four months later. we ask for craftting machines witha view we get it weeks later. and they r just makong smart decisions. like the keys being crafted and common. furniture using sweat as a material. taking there time when they need to and fast to respond and fix problems when they can.
