How did you spend your headstart?

Now that the game will launch for everyone in a few hours I'm curious about how the people who preordered spent their headstart.

Did you power level? focused on trading/making money? goofed around like me and didn't accomplish much?

gl to the people who had to wait till launch to play, I'm sure you will forget all about your irritations for having to wait after you try this amazing game <3

I spent mine working out all of the 'different' features of the game, such as workers, nodes and some of the professions, alongside a little levelling.

I'm currently level 40 and spend most of my time fishing / afk-fishing :D

So I kinda levelled, kinda made money, kinda goofed around?

Tried to do everything at once without really knowing the game, then tried to power level a while, enjoyed loads of it whatever it was I was doing! :) It's been fun but my progress is shocking for in game time! haha! I wish I had put all my eggs in one basket now and just grinded for fun, although it may have been less fun doing that who knows, now I'm learning more of the game before I go for another level up! :) Something like that anyway!

I would have been doing a lot of exploring because the game is so beautiful! However, I unfortunately have not been able to utilize my head start. I get the "connection to the server has been lost" screen every time I attempt to get in-game. I'm still hopeful though!

Blasted to 50, collecting nodes up until calpheon.

Now the game is unplayable during peak hours these past 2 days so I can't even go without mega lag or disconnects.

I hope they strengthen server stability for tomorrow or it's going to be a living hell.

I took some pics from the top of the building in calpheon. The Valk training grounds:

This also gave me a good chuckle since they're being seiged by trolls.
