Veteran ESOTU players, if you could give a noob player one piece of advice you wish you'd known at the beginning of your journey, what would it be?

    Start researching armor/weapon traits from the very beginning. Even if you don't intend to start crafting your own gear right away, researching early will save you a ton of time and frustration if/when you do decide to start making your own stuff.

    Don't worry about spending gold or time on upgrading gear until your vet level, put your money you earn early on into bank space, which will benefit all your characters, and then into bag space when you're sure that's going to be a character you will continue to play.

    Put the 3 equipment crafting skills on an alt. If your alt has woodworking, blacksmithing and clothing then you only need to buy/use motifs once for that character to cover all 3.

    Early on before you have a lot of points into horse speed, level up your PVP skills to get Rapid Maneuver to save yourself A LOT of travel time.

    Level up all your weapon/armor skills and all your other abilities til they're morphable. Will not only give you a lot more choices in later levels, but will help you understand the flexibility of your builds and other peoples builds much more than sticking with the same handful of skills.

    If you want to make gold in the low levels, harvest everything. All harvested mats (besides alchemy water and potency runes) are used by everyone regardless of level, and the lower level wood/ore/cloth/hides are worth a lot to higher levels who will buy them to refine to get blue/purple/gold mats.

    agreed, and its as easy as doing the pvp tutorial quest. By the time your done with that, you have rapid maneuver unlocked.

    Well, the mere fact you are asking for advice in a pleasant manner makes you a newb, not a noob. And there is a difference.

    I think the answer also depends on the kind of player you are. PvE only? PvP only? Are you looking for the fast grind to Veteran ranks (level 45+) or do you like questing and exploring? Do you like to do dungeons? Are you console or PC?

    I ask because some of the suggestions already provided may be good for one play style, but not another, so if you want to make sure you get answers targeted to your specific play style you may want to narrow the scope.

    Yes, a noob is one who whines and does not handle advice. Everything is the fault of something else, and never them. they are unpleasant to be near. It is a derogatory term, and will be slapped uppon such people.

    A newb is someone who is new and accepts help, they seek improvement and are aware of their limitations. It is a term used to label new members to a guild or activity. Every Leet was a newb once. Many will actually go out of their way to help a newb.
