I may as well piggyback off of this topic; long time Myst player here, new to Uru. I've got the Complete Chronicles but have yet to start anything and was wondering if there was any particular order I should do things. I suppose what I'm most worried about is completing the Myst Online levels that require multiple players, that and there being changes to the Ages I've already done either offline or prior to expansions that will wind up being updated/changed for the later versions.

Diving into the online would probably give me too many doors with too little information without having done the offline first. However, the offline denies me the multiplayer experience/knowledge until I complete it.

One thing you might consider is that the Complete Chronicles was only issued because Uru was shut down and that package was all the things they had in the pipeline that were meant for the online version. Some things that required multiple players were tweaked to allow for a single player to complete the same tasks. So, the online version is the way it was intended to be.

Do not worry about whether or not you're doing things in a particular order. Like all other Myst games, Uru is meant to be explored. Take your time and enjoy the exploration. When you need help to complete a task, you can find it here or in game.

One thing I would suggest is that, when you get as far as Ahnonay, try to put together a party of new explorers to look at it together in the online game. That's how it was meant to be done in the first place and in the offline game it is a mighty puzzler, and if you do solve it offline you carry some clues back with you when you get to it online. The solution is different, though.

Er'cana is another age where the solution is different, but there are less spoilers for the online game in the offline game.

The endgame is different too, but you'll discover that as you go :)

I'd just like to add that I've seen some of these "first-time player" Myst Online videos on YouTube, and they all seem to have one thing in common: they get lost because they try to rush through the game, and end up missing a lot of important clues.

So, please, take your time exploring Uru. Every detail is important. Every posted sign, every book, every bit of spoken dialogue contains vital information.
