An official post was released that showcases the newbie events that will be available right after the launch. You can check it here, but here's a TL;DR:
Diesel (SSR), Ether (SR), and 3k Gems are given to all for free (pre-reg rewards),
Newbie login calendar that gives 13 pull tickets, 300 Gems, and tons of materials and equipment,
Newbie missions that will give 7 pull tickets, 4200 Gems, Privaty (SSR), and other goodies.
On top of that, additional rewards will be given for pushing through the story and tower, equalling to around 60 pulls worth of tickets and Gems.
If you want to know how you can reroll and who to reroll for to get an optimal start, you can check our guide that's updated for the release:
We recently added an alternate method to the Salted email that revolves around clearing data in emulators.
Early and late teams
We also recently released a guide that shows some early and meta teams that you can build in NIKKE. While the first few days you will have to rely on SR to carry you, soon you will have to decide in which way you want to build your characters and this guide will help you.
We released and updated a lot of other guides as well. You can find the full list here, but below we listed the most important ones:
Introduction to the game - basically a FAQ that gives you high-level information about NIKKE,
Character progression - how to make your characters stronger,
Game modes - list of modes available in the game,
Outpost - a lot of important systems are hidden inside the Oupost and this guide explores them all.
