Waterdeep is a great place, I've definitely spent enough time there to say that its enjoyable. I can honestly say someone, staff or player, has went out of there way to answer any question or concern I've had which is refreshing. I can't give the community of the mud as a whole enough compliments for anyone to understand without coming themselves to check out Waterdeep. The newbie school is a little long winded, but is entertaining at least. I think that a newbie to muds in general could learn a lot from the school itself. The mud is huge, with lots of things to find and discover and even has a wiki with lots of useful tips and info for newbies. It has a little bit of everything for somone even when leveling, quests all the way from level 1 to 101. When you get to the level cap, there are still plenty of things to do for the endgame. Which again, if you want it, the players are extremely helpful in getting gear for your newly acquired level.'Runs' are raid-like quests that you can do to get gear that require several or a few players to complete. Most of the player base do these daily and are always willing to take anyone along with them. Granted some will expect you to know things even when you are new, but others are extremely helpful in trying to teach you the ropes. There are some cons that I've found, which like I said before have always been addressed in some way. I have actually seen a few updates and changes made in the short time I've been playing there that really make a difference. - There are bloated skill/spell lists with several being useless or directed that way in the help files for the skill/spell. Some classes have very few effective skills/spells. (With that said, I have been told by a few imms that they are looking at some ways to fix this in the future.] - PK needs some balancing imo, with veteran players having the leg up on a new character as most have been playing for several years and have acquired end game gear/stats. - With it being such an old mud with so many areas, some are unfinished/have quests that no one seems to know how to finish. Its notable, only because it has frustrated me more than once. I recommend waterdeep to anyone, I have a blast here.
