So you've just joined alanthya, now what? well for starters your going to have to find food/shelter and a set of armor you can fend off mobs in. you may do /warp food if you cant find any piggies derping around, but that only solves the easiest problem, alanthya may be a grief-proof server but that dosn't mean ppl aren't looking to hunt you down! your next problem is to make a shelter, I sugguest digging to bedrock level and making a starter house there(it will be hard for people to find you there) make sure to make a stop at /warp security they sell what are called "protection stones" these blocks protect a 10x10x10 area from all other players but you, this should keep your house safe until you have earned the 80k to make a faction, now that you have acquired a safe base its time to make some armor, you may be saying "well DUH!" but armor is quite different in alanthya
we have both ability armor and the always elusive lore armor (le gasp) ability armor can be bought at /warp alanthya and is moderately effective, but lore armor grants you different attributes like more hearts and faster attack speed and even more damage! lore armor is made when you craft regular armor of any type, is its a slim chance though you may get lower grade armor before you get the good stuff but don't fret! you will have plenty of time to aquire that later. ok so now you have food/shelter/armor its a good start, but now you must worry about mcmmo, this will require you to kill many mobs in order for you to get stronger, now killing mobs for hours on end just for stats may seem tedious but you can aquire a job that will also give you money for killing them! simply do /jobs join hunter and begin your rampage!
Once you have become stronger people will begin looking for you, this gives you two options:
1-you can buy pvp safezones for 500k each(very exspensive)
2-make a few traps in your base and prepare to fight them off
fighting seasoned players of alanthya is not recommended for new players as they have had the time to aquire stats ect your best bet is to trap them for now until you get stronger.
If you plan on fighting them anyway you will NEED very good armor which can be exspensive if you don't have $$ or a spawner luckily for you netherwart is a highly sought after plant in the overworld! you can begin a netherwart farm and sell your crops to /warp potshop to make some extra cash.
your going to want to save $$ for a faction before you buy armor enchants, prot stones only protect griefing people can still overclaim you so be carefull D:
once you have made your faction and a couple sets of decent armor you are almost ready to take on the world of alanthya....almost. allies are a very important part of surviving, I don't care how strong or good at pvp you think you are when 5 elite players attk you your going to want help, your next step is to make some close allies, they will come in handy when you need help most. After you have acquired allies your pretty much rdy to go take your new found friends with you if you plan on roaming the world because it can get very dangerous with pvpers roaming around.
Lastly the best way to stay alive in the world of alanthya is location location location! always have more than 1 bunker laying around incase you have to move, the above plan is pretty fool-proof but sometimes ppl accidentally accept tpas so always have a backup home.
well, that should keep most noobs alive if they can manage to sit through this horribly long post >.< to any noob that reads this good luck and have fun on your adventure through alanthya!
