I have been playing Istaria/Horizons since first release, so I am definitely an "elder" player. Over the years, I have helped, and been helped by, many wonderful people. There are many sources of information outside the game too, such as the wonderful http://horizons.gamersinfo.net and the community site. I used to trawl the forums for all sorts of fantastic hints about levelling and places to visit in-game.
However, over time forum posts "age" and that information is lost. Similarly other websites have come and gone. With the influx of new players, it is often hard for them to find out some of the info we "elder" players treat as second-nature. To that end, I have created a free Wiki site at:
I have added some limited information so far, just enough to get some basic structure. There is an enormous amount of info I'd like to add, particularly around how best to level classes and what locations are most efficient when crafting, etc. I would like to ask for everyone to help out where possible, either with requests for info, or adding info to the site. Permissions on the site are restricted to members of the wiki space (it's a big, bad world out there, unfortunately) but if you request access, you'll get it
I know there are lots of websites already with information, but a lot of new players don't know about them either! If we get enough content, I'd like to get the site added to the community.istaria.com site too.
Yours in Istaria,
