Hey guys, I used to play the game some(alot) years ago. Was wondering what are the servers population(please no numbers including alts) and is it worth coming back to the game thanks in advance
yes it is worth coming back we just got a new patch.... MMP most active server Columbus 2nd i guess
New patch is atm much IM related, but it is very new so guess will change over time and the IM stuff is only for top players (lvl 160+) anyway so dont worry
Have a great time , game is LOTS more fun.

There is no way to know population numbers.
But MMP is most populated and has the most PVP players, Columbus is 2nd, Dagama 3rd, Zheng He is dead but fine if you like to play alone. Warning.. they only tend to offer server transfer 2 times a year though there is also a way to pay real money and transfer as well... if you can get support to answer you.
Even If IGG kept track of population, it would include alts because you can not really play this game with out alts... for storage if nothing else.
Personally because I stay low level (150's) max is now 170.... I use my healer and tank together when I play solo... and then I have a planting alt, a fishing alt, a timber alt and a mining alt... hard to have just 1 or 2 alts because you need storage for the resources...
However, you can take a character to level 100 in "old" skills instantly.
(120 is max in a skill like mining, 170 is the max over all level)
New characters are given 4 or 5 "reward gold" and can purchase more in the item mall... they can be used in Athens Dock bottom of ramp to buy an item that takes a skill to 100.
Warning about skills - there are 2 kinds
the old ones from skill tutor and profession skills from the in game (ctrl+S) interface.
You can only have a max of 5 profession Production skills (points are granted as you level).
So to cover all 15 profession skills... you need a minimum of 3 characters... so choose your profession skills wisely... old skills do not matter you can level all to 120 you dont even need phase 2 and 3 books anymore.
You will want to start with a new character (for main or alts) and do the beginner story line then both knights vigil quest lines... you will get free level 140 equipment and a lvl 11 Adventure ship by the end of those 3 quests lines.
You may not even need to do ALL the beginner quest line as first knights vigil opens when you hit 120... but you will have to do some of the quest line to level up fastest.
If you try to use an old character... the quest lines may or may not work.. we have had so many updates old characters are often messed up.
