Regarding how gathering feels....
Just bought the game, spent only a few hours exploring/gathering/crafting, so my experience is very limited.
What would you think about a starter set for the first character we make? Like basic tools, basic weapon and basic armor?
Spending my first 2 hours just to hit nodes to have some gear, so i do not run around naked is not what i call a smooth/enjoyable starting experience.
By the time this gear breaks i will know my way around, will have some skills trained and probably could harvest more than 2 logs from a tree.
Let the first few hours start my adventure and not my grind at the nodes!
Ps: Might be not the right topic...
