Yes, let's make it more friendly for them.
No, let them feel the Korean rice fields.

Do new players need any other extra benefits?

The only thing that I really missed was adena for my first tp to Giran to check the server so I know if I wanted to play here or not, but some player gave me like 50k so not even this would be such a problem.
But I would've rly appreciated 1 normal SOE and 1 Giran SOE(mb untradeable so no1 abuses this lel). The ss are a nice touch btw :)

This SOE to Giran is unhealthy from my point of view, it is like asking an online count function. Better enjoy the game until 40. And that even brings a benefit, you already are 40 and are more interested in staying on this server even if you don't find 2K people around. But some normal SOE / SS/SSD/BSSD would be nice imho.

Exactly! I did this in the first hour of gameplay because YES, for me the population matters and if I would've saw Giran empty at that time I would've continue searching for a server.
I don't know about you, but when I search for a server I cut down through them to just a few and check them by turn. OFC Giran state is one of the most important criteria since it's a decent population predictor.

I agree that Giran is a population predictor, and I did search for several servers until I reached dawn. Many russian ones, dex servers which I found out that are wiped periodically and so on. I've chosen dawn after aggregating many factors, population was not exactly the "selling point" for me.

It takes literally 2 minutes to complete the newbie quest for a soe to Giran...

My suggestion: display somewhere time of death for subclass raids so that if we take a day off to have a chance to catch em.

Totally agree with you on that one, its already hard enough to either find a group to kill the raids or wait for some other clan to kill them. Not to mention the fact that the top tier pvp clans seem to like pking players waiting for those boss kills. (Maybe only my personal experience tho).

So, if we had timers to know when they got killed, that would help a lot.

Timers were added a few months ago but were pulled down due to a large disagreement from the very same players. 10 players ask us to do something, we do and then we get an outcry of 20 others against it.

I'm thinking of something like donate an amount to have those TOD's for a week(s)/month for instance. At least to be able to finish your sub. Please give it a thought.

You get those @ lvl 5 quest. You talk to 2 npcs and get 1 soe to giran and in giran talk with 3 npcs and get soe back to starting village (eg ;ORCS have into the city of humans quest).

Well, in a nutshell :
- Teleports are ok via Fantasy Island
- Could use like 15k SSD / 10k BSSD as starting back
- Could use some bind-on-character top no grade / D grade / C grade armor to hit to 45.
- Maybe 12X rate for lvl 1-20 , 9X for lvl 20-40 and normal XP after lvl 40. These tables can be adjusted to maybe lvl 50.

Why ?
-> Server is old. Not many newbies start here. If the server was 4-5 months, would have been ok. Real question which a person actually asked me : "Q :How old the server is? A: XY months ; Reply : Pff..every1 full S).

-> All players are high level already with full gear, full subclass, full epics : so no1 farms at lvls 40-65 so they will just have no party.

If you wish to have new players, server must be wiped and a proper advertising campaign can be made.
No worries if many will leave, more will join.

I was just talking with some1 who started like 3-4 weeks ago. He was a bit pissed and asked me this question :"How long do I (him) have to farm to even barely catch up with the others ? Months? Years ? I don't think it worths investing this time here". Unfortunatelly, this question is correct. At the current age, it is more like a full pvp server low rate. On a 10.000x server, every1 stands a chance and are equal (same armors from GM shop) but here compared to some ppl that farmed the server for months and months .. you get my point.

I joined the server because a no wipe policy. If it is wiped I will never join back.

You could also increase herb buffs duration and make them droppable from all low lvl mobs.
