I think being able to pick a class as early as creating a character is a bit strange, you’ll be able to get every class anyway. Plus, being able to attack straight from the get go creates temptation to do just that and not do the tutorial.
Abandoning Randal straight off and kill. Then ask questions about the game that was addressed in the tutorial quest. The tutorial is not the best but it does provide a little.
I understand the starting point of the game will not change but this is my 2 cents.
