ENTROPIA UNIVERSE MENTORSHIP
In Entropia Universe the sooner you find a Mentor to complete your Mentorship the better. Personally, I finished my graduation in a little less than 2 weeks, and let's say the average time it takes for an invested player is 1 month. If you have read the previous part, you know i was level 15 when i came back to the game, so i already had won many skill points from the past, and so completing my Mentorship was even longer than if i had started a few hours ago.
The sooner, the better :
Entropia Universe is all about skill points… and the more you gain in one area, the longer it will take you to get more in this same specific domain. When you hunt mobs (monsters), the most interesting skill to help you complete your Mentorship faster is Anatomy. So if you're level 1, you'll gain Anatomy points VERY FAST, but if you're level 15 the points will be slower to come by… And if you're even higher than that, prepare yourself for a Long Mentorship ! 😒
So that's why i will never repeat it enough times… The sooner you find a Mentor, The Better !
So what is Mentorship ?
It's like in Real Life… You choose to become the Disciple of a Mentor, like a Jedi Padawan if you prefer 😁 But the difference is you don't have to follow your Jedi everywhere, No No No ! In fact you just have to Team 1 time with your Mentor for like 10 seconds, Kill a creature together, and the rest of the Mentorship you can be 100% Independent !
You see, there are players who don't want a Mentor because they think they will have to follow the Mentor's lead, do everything the Mentor says… It's absolutely not like that ! The Mentor is there to answer your every questions about the game, but never will you have to stick to his / her ass !
ENTROPIA UNIVERSE MENTORSHIP
First of all to find a Mentor, you have to open the Action Library, search for Mentor Register, you'll see the exhaustive list of Mentor where you can search for someone (like me ! Marco magnifico Schifano 😎) and then send a Mentorship request.
And if your Mentor accepts, go back to the Action Library and search this time for Mentoring. Now you'll see your Progress Window as you can see below, with a Skill Progress bar from 0 to 100%, and 3 badges you have to acquire in order to graduate.
- The hunting Badge, just team up 1 time with your mentor and it's good.
- The Mining Badge, just seek out ores or energy matters 1 time with a mining tool
- The Construction Badge, just craft 1 thing on a manufacturing machine (like a Basic filter)
These 3 badges are very easy and fast to obtain, the longer part will be the Skill progression Bar… Basically you have to win points in either Hunting, Mining or Construction skills to make it progress towards 100%. And when you're a new player, you won't put your money in Mining or Construction, because you'll be ruined in 30 minutes 😆
So the only choice left is to Hunt and Kill monsters ! And Anatomy will be the skill that will help to increase the bar !
I did complete my Mentorship in less than 2 weeks, but i was unemployed at that time so i had a lot of free time. I did play A LOT like Up to 12 hours a day 😜 But i will never ask one of my disciple to do the same, that's only my life… And by the end of my mentorship, i had played so much in a narrow amount of time that i was fucking sick of it 🤔
Still… I do ask my disciples to finish their Mentorship in a Time Frame of 2 months. It's more than enough even for a casual player, and if it takes you longer than that, it means you don't really care about Entropia Universe, and in that case I'd rather mentor someone else.
So here is the screenshot below to find me :
First Screenshot was in 2021, since then i have graduated 3 disciples successfully.
In this Mentor Register window, type in the search box Marco and you should easily find me Marco Magnifico Schiffano which is the name of my Avatar, and also Marco my real first name in real life 😊 Click on my profile, read the details at the bottom, and finally click on the Request button at the bottom right.
I'll accept your request and you'll become my disciple ! A Mentor is made to help you start the game, to guide you… Like i already began to do with this Entropia Universe Beginner Guide ✌
But let's be honest… If there was nothing to gain, no one would care about Mentoring 😁
ENTROPIA UNIVERSE MENTORSHIP
Just for you to know from the start… a Mentor is not there to give you FREE stuff, it's just Guidance !
Remember we all play with our real money, and like in real life we don't give our money to others just like that 😉 Well some of us Mentors do give some basic stuff like small blueprints, or pieces of armor we really don't need… But don't count too much on that, and anyway the real rewards will be given to you once you have completed your graduation ! You'll receive a FULL Armor and a Vehicle !
Take a look at the screenshot below ! Cool isn't it ?
Your graduation gifts will appear like if you had won a Hall of Fame 😎
The armor you see above on the 2nd screenshot is the armor you get if you complete your graduation on Calypso… But the armor is different on every planet ! And if like me you graduated on Next Island (and i recommend it!) here is the coolest armor of the game you'll get ! It's called the Atlas armor.
Even if you started on Calypso, you can come on NI to finish your Mentorship.
So as a rule of thumb, before reaching 100% in your skill progression bar, make sure you're on the right planet 😉
Important : There is a known bug that i had and it explains all those screenshots above ! I did graduate on Next Island, but i got the Calypso armor instead of the Atlas. So i filed in a Support Case to MindArk, and 3-4 days later they replaced my Adjusted Pixie Armor with the white and fashioned Atlas armor from NI 😎
The Mentoring is a way for MindArk to attract new players to Entropia Universe, you can see it as a way of rewarding people who get active into the game. We all win from this system… You get your 30 peds of free stuff, and Mentors will get 1 part of armor (value 20 peds), and MindArk will get a new active player in their database.
It's a Win – Win – Win on the 3 sides. Also by the end of Mentorship, don't forget to give me 5 STARS ! as I'll have an extra Bonus gift to give you if you do so 🌹 (and i am not saying that just to say it… i Do have an extra gift !)
ENTROPIA UNIVERSE MENTORSHIP
Don't worry about becoming a disciple…
I am not going to be behind your ass 24/24 7/7… not at all lol 😂
You live your life the way you want on EU, and I'll live mine 😉 I'll answer your questions if i can, give you some guidance if you want to… But i will never judge you, i will never tell you “Do this my way !“. No i want you to have a good experience of the game, i want you to enjoy it, i don't want you to feel this mentorship as a constraint.
We'll just have to team up 1 time to kill a creature and then if you're a very independent person, suits me fine !
Just… Don't beg me for money, stuff or whatever… or I'll stop mentoring you.
Now, be very careful about the mentor you choose :
- Avoid Society Leaders from Big societies…
- Avoid Mentors who put a smiley at the end of every sentences…
- Avoid Mentors who will tell you they can mentor you without asking first about your needs !
My own mentor was the sociey leader of Deus Vults, and he was fucking useless.
These guys are only using their notoriety as Guild Leaders to grab more disciples for the free stuff, he never really cared about “what i really needed“, he only did the same speech he did with all his other disciples. When you have a Mentor like that who doesn't really care about you, who give you a list of advice without even asking you what your really need, you know your mentorship will bring you nothing.
Then i left Deus Vults, because i saw the same behavior in other society members… people who like to Brag, tell their life when nobody cares, bad behaviors, stealing mobs… Everytime i saw a Deus Vult member, i knew some shit was going to happen. But it comes from Hierarchy, when you manage like an ass, your members will do the same.
As for asking the disciples about their needs… I recall one day there was a guy at the sweat gathering circle asking for a new mentor, so i sent him a message : “Hey, what are you looking for in a Mentor ?“
And the guy answered me after a few minutes, telling me i was late because another guy messaged him faster than me… It's great he took the first guy who messaged him, without asking him if he would answer his needs… The Disciple / Mentor relationship should be more important than “the guy who messaged you first…“.
