Preset Builds for New Players

When someone new goes to c-RPG website there is an overwhelming amount of information to process. Most new players get confused, do terrible builds/equipment and often get frustrated and quit because of that. I believe that if someone was able to quickly go from downloading the mod to playing with a good build and items they would be much more inclined to get past the early hump that so often causes people to leave.

I propose that when someone first logins to their c-RPG page they are allowed to choose a preset build that is instant level 34 with a set of equipment, this would be through a popup that has a selection of pictures and classes with their pro's and cons. Kinda like choosing a hero in a Dota/Overwatch.

Something like this but obviously more fleshed out.

Now of course there would be a button to skip this if the player didn't want to pick one of those prebuilt archetypes, and it should be made clear that it's just the introduction and they can buy/skill whatever they want after a respec.

Your binary primitive low capacity of thinking is not relevant.

Yeah, I'd agree with this idea.  Could help.  At some point they'll need to learn the ropes.  But this could get them started.

The only worry I'd have then is that it can be a long grind from 34 to 35.  The long of a grind without any reward (leveling) might be off-putting to new players.  But heck... there'd be no way around that... and they can't have it all.
