Today was my second day playing Discovery Online, what good day it was. Although I didn't get to play very long, I was able to get alot accomplished.
I continued to complete quests until I was too lvl 8, then I decided to start battling. I was a little worried at first but I quickly realized it was no big deal. I was in the English Channel fighting English Pirates and English something else's. They were simple!
I could fight for an hour without having to repair my ship if I needed too.
I managed to get to lvl 9 before I called it an evening. I'm glad the weather is poor here because that means I have time to play!
