Most of the experienced players know that there is a quest that rewards you with 800 culture points upon the construction of town hall. I would also argue that most experienced players agree that this quest is best used to speed up settling your second village. My problem with the quest is that is it only appears on the quest list after your second village is already settled. This of course isn't a problem for experienced players who know that you can just build the thing and still complete the quest even when it's not showing up. The issue however will negatively impact new players.
If a new player isn't aware of the ability to gain 800 culture from building town hall they will often times struggle settling the first village. Either he waits for the 1000 culture to generate from his buildings (which takes quite long) or even worse he might build settlers thinking he is ready to settle but then get stuck to this phase for several days. I have run into this issue many times myself when helping newer players out so I think it warrants a change.
I feel the quest system should be as clear as possible since it largely serves the function of an advanced tutorial for the game hence I propose the following fix:
The Town hall quest should be unlocked as soon as you complete the "Residence to lvl 5" quest. Additionally the texts of the quests "Construct a Town Hall" and "Train 3 settlers" should be adjusted accordingly, instructing players that they need both the culture and the settlers to create their second village.
What do you guys think of this suggestion?
