When creating a character choose craft, harvest and magic, this will give you more skill points to play around with in the long run. Get your hands on a good 2h sword or axe and you should get the fight skill free after you've killed a yubo or two. Melee is easiest to level solo on the training island and magic can be levelled quick enough if you team up with a similar levelled fighter and heal. Go to the trainers every few levels to buy new skills. At the fighter trainer concentrate on increasing hit points and then increased damage. When you start running out of stamina too soon in fights start to increase it too. Hit points will come in handy at later levels too for crediting your spells.
The training island is only supposed to be a real challenge up to level 20, so xp begins to drop off afterwards. My advice would be to stay on the island till you have a few skills up to lvl 20 and feel happy with the controls. Magic and melee are a good choice here because if you find the training island too quiet you can level harvest and craft when you go to the mainland The starting town will have materials up to quality 50 in the surrounding area. There are lots of people on the mainland who can help you too and give good advice.
Google "doubletap harvesting guide" or "Ballistic Mystix" for a few good guides, maps and mob and materials info.
If you plan to subscribe to Ryzom I'd suggest not joining the first guild that throws you an invite, but look around for a good guild that suits you.
It is also a good idea to display other players' hit points, sap and stamina. To do this hit the "U" key, go into "interface" then into "in scene" and click on "friends" then tick the appropriate boxes. Also if you have a window that says "Window/Game/actions" then right-click on one of the tabs at the top of the window and select "icon mode".
Basic shortcuts (assuming you don't remap them!):
The "A" key will show you your levels
The "L" key will light up the area around you.
The "P" key will give you info about your character, like how many skill points you have or your constitution. When you reach certain level targets you can also set your title here too.
The "K" key will bring up a list of keyboard shortcuts.
Basic commands to type into the chat window are:
/who (this displays a list of people in the same region as you, the info appears in your system info window
/where (tells you where you are)
/burp (burp emote - a very important one to remember ;) )
/wave (wave emote)
/tell <player name here> e.g. "/tell Kirijoleth" to talk to a specific player
Good hunting and watch out for the gingos!

You should come to the mainland
ask in region if anyone is around to help you out
get some decent equipment, because there is a huge difference between bad and good equipment
then once you have a good 2h weapon start killing lots of things
by level 40 you should be grouping whenever you want to hunt
if you cant find a group on any given day then dig and craft, or tell jokes in region chat

Welcome to Atys ArChroi :)
Most things have already said, so I like to add only some general tips.
If you start to train melee first, you will have enough hitpoints to do some easy magic training afterwards.
If you train magic, keep the distance between yourself and you target as far as possible. Maybe you have to edit your spells, and remove the range credit from the spells, to have a 50m spell.
And if you think to hunt Kipee (these flat headed crabs) know that they are immune to acid spells, but will still be annoyed be them ;)
If you have questions, ask around in region. Most of the time there are some kind souls around, who like to help you with a problem.
