More I play, more I learn. Experience, and time spent on POTC-NH gave me a lot of good experience. Here's my own tips for all PotC-NH players. --- 1-Save often: yes, this is also written in the game tips, and is true. How many times I needed to restart all because I haven't saved in time... 2-Take your own options: Not all people has the same thoughts, and not all people like to have the same game options. Some like a light game, and some hard, then first of all, see all the possible options, and choose the ones that you like. 3-Take your time: PotC-NH is a piratesque RPG,not certainly a modern, ipergraphical game for fat rich boys that like win with cheats, then, require a lot of time, real time I say. You start your character, and go further in days, and also weeks or months before see the fresh rookie become a powerful and able sea captain. In this, PotC-NH resemble Morrowind, need a lot of time for become someone and be acknowledged and feared from a side to the other of the 7 seas.... 4-Choose a role and playing stile that satisfy you: Not all choices are the same, and not every career can satisfy you. For give an example, my best choices are Adventurer, Explorer, and Merchant: I have tried a bit some other careers, but these 3 give to me the best way to going further in the game. 4a: Try also some other careers: Although you are better in some careers, it is a good thing try also some others that you feel interesting. Probably these careers will be not suited for you, but before discard them at all, is better make a try. --- ok, if I have some other wisdom pearls to share, I will adjoin here.
