Just picked this up and am a complete noob. I've played for a few hours, just finished up the lvl 1 Moga quests, and am on the Sandy Plains now. I'm liking the game so far but I'm a little confused as to the online options...
Obviously, I do want to play online, but I don't want to do it while I'm still in the "intro" part of the game and I'm extremely weak. So...is there a point of the game that is ideal for starting online play, or what? Also, is the online quests at Port different from the single player ones? And if so, are they really worth doing (like do you keep your money, resources, etc. to use in your SP game)?
