I wanted to play Berserker since I read the first preview. My favorite companion right now is Crony (you can finish his quest if you use your brain and climb the side of the mountain around the converter, avoid the patrols, and then just RUN).
Next level up I will (finally) have enough strength to use the Regent's Sword +1 that I found. Maybe I'll later exchange my bow for a plasma rifle.
I'm a Techno Viking. How cool is that? =)
drakrochma: Level 5 is nothing, just like 3 or 4 hours of gaming. Do not choose a faction yet. That way you waste a ton of XP, from all the qualifying quests from the other faction. I have played almost 25 hours and am level 13 and haven't taken a faction yet. I am only now getting to the clerics (I like exploring... and getting lost...) and after THEIR quests I will join the Berserkers. Good old Gothic strategy: Take all the XP (and accompanying stories) you can get before joining.
You need to invest in a hunting shirt and pants and maybe a hood, for basic protection. Avoid all creeps that creep you out, because they can and will kill you. Run around them or straight past them as fast as you can. Fighting everything just because it is there is stupid. In the beginning you are weak, you have to work your way up. Invest in the 'taking trophies' skill, it is your basic form of income (aside from quests). NEVER sell plants, only teeth and claws. And don't ever eat them, they are far too valuable for that.
Have a little fun. And save often. There is a lot you can do in the world of Elex, and reloading because you got killed is no shame but, for me, part of the fun. Like, I just yesterday upgraded my bow and then KILLED A SKEX. Dude would have bitten me in HALF if he had gotten to me. In one bite. =D
