The New Recruit Initiative : Freebies to get you started

Post  Ankoku Flare on Thu Sep 06, 2012 12:12 am

I think this will work better in the forums than in the wiki

The New Recruit Initiative is a long-term recruit giveaway, sponsored by donations from the members of Aurora. It's primary goal is to assist promising recruits in getting T2 access and obtaining a fundamental set of gear, concentrated around the Jelly King levels (Royal Jelly Palace, D15-17). Instead of spending time grinding T1 for the low heat and crowns, the New Recruit Initiative will give the recruit the gear requirements for T2 (2* or above) and allow them to effectively bypass it, moving onto the more profitable T2 in order to maximize crown gain.

To participate in the New Recruit Initiative Program, you must:

A) Be a recruit
B) Lack T2 Access/have difficulty defeating Jelly King
C) Have no 3* or higher items.
D) Fill out the following survey and post it here

Survey

1) What is your current loadout?
2) How long have you been playing Spiral Knights? When did you start?
3) What do you like about Spiral Knights?
4) Have you defeated the Snarbolax yet?
4.1) If so, how many Frumious Fangs have you obtained?
5) Do you know about the Spiral Knights Forum on the Spiral Knights Website?
5.1) Do you know about the New Recruits and Arsenal sections of the forum, which contain useful information for new players?
6) What do you think you can bring to the Aurora community?
7) One of the key principles of Aurora is learning, and as a recruit, you are entitled to ask any veteran, officer, guild master, and even member for assistance in any aspect of the game (short of begging). Please verify that you understand this.
8) Are there any questions you have about gaining T2 access/progressing in the game?

After your survey has been approved by the Guild Masters and Officers of Aurora, you will be granted a set of equipment based on your responses:

New Recruit Initiative Sets

There are currently two sets of gear that can be claimed:

1) The Snarbolax Set is available to anyone who has not defeated Snarbolax and/or has not completed 10 T1 levels. It provides a basic Gloaming Wildwoods-centered set of gear:

Wolver Cap ★★☆☆☆
Wolver Coat ★★☆☆☆
Owlite Shield ★★☆☆☆ OR Plate Shield ★★☆☆☆
Flourish ★★☆☆☆
Choice of:
Blaster ★★☆☆☆
Cryotech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆
Voltech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆
Firotech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆

2) The Jelly King Set is available to anyone who has gained 10+ Frumious Fangs and has completed 10 levels of T1. It provides a basic Royal Jelly Palace-centered set of gear:

Wolver Cap ★★☆☆☆
Wolver Coat ★★☆☆☆
Owlite Shield ★★☆☆☆ OR Plate Shield ★★☆☆☆
Tempered Calibur ★★★☆☆ OR Nightblade ★★★☆☆
Choice of:
Blaster ★★☆☆☆
Cryotech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆
Voltech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆
Firotech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆
Shadowtech Alchemer ★★☆☆☆ (Only if Calibur is selected over Nightblade)

Note*: If a participant already has a said piece of gear, that item will not be given.

Note**: A participant may claim both sets of gear, if the conditions are met independently.


Training

The New Recruit Initiative grants recruits the gear they will need to complete the stated stratums. Additional help can be found by asking members for help on runs and tactics with the newfound weapons. We have a great group of veteran players here at Aurora, and please feel free to ask away about anything! Remember, there are no stupid questions :).

I see a flaw in this program....

I mean its a great one, but the problem is most recruits are already past this point, don't even know about this forum, and even less of them will actually post here. It just doesn't work out sadly... You can still leave this here, but most people will likely have moved on.

True, it's definitely meant for those just starting out. And it was created pre-mission system. Lately we've been getting more players into the guild who've been around for a bit. However, it's still nice to have this for a friend or family member who is just getting into the game. Helps get them going on the right track. Thanks for the feedback though, nice to see you posting about more topics like this.

huh. sounds nice, but somewhat impractical.
I only know a handful of people in the guild that this would apply to, and most of them either dont know about the forums or dont care.
however, it is nice, like Read said, for friends and such just starting out. It looks great but i dont see a ton of use coming out of it since the majority of Aurora is at least 3*
