Hoooooooo boy, here we go!
Combat is deadly. This isn’t your typical MMO where you can take 30 mobs at once.
This game is skill based. It WILL take time to get the hang of things.
Yes, the casting recognition system is working properly.
Dungeon Queue dungeons scale, so you’ll be fine going in as a low level.
Dungeon and Raid Queue give bonus XP for the first run each day.
You get a “Roll” once per day in shard dungeons. This will give you a guaranteed piece of equipment at that level of dungeon.
The best way to level up is to do missions from the vendors in Highsteppe.
Whether you get a fish while fishing is determined the moment the lure hits the water, so you can reel in quickly without losing the chance of fish biting.
The Auction House has a 2% fee everytime you buy or sell anything on there. Factor that in when making purchases.
Bard has two mallets. I know you said not class specific, but the number of times I’ve blown people’s minds by telling them that…
Dev Slayer is a title, not a Dev.
Different materials are found in different parts of the world. You’ll have to explore the realm if you want to get different alchemy and artificing materials.
People with the Dev Slayer title are not Devs.
Fish are found in different parts of the world. You may have to go to specific bodies of water for certain fish.
Please, for the love of god, Dev Slayer =/= Dev.
How long X potions last for.
Anybody can create or join a Fellowship.
Warrior Shield doesn’t block projectiles or magic (Again, class specific, but again, something new players don’t understand).
Youtube is a valuable source of knowledge.
Tiles are like custom enchantments that increase your damage and healing by performing certain actions.
Each day you get 5 Mission Credits. You can’t hold more than 25. Use them to get missions to level up and get rewards!
Consider joining the unofficial Discord (or would that make it official?)
Always feel free to ask for help. The community is pretty friendly!
Turning on PvP means you WILL drop all tradeable items if you die. Anybody in PvP can pick it all back up. Nobody is under any obligation to fight fair. Turning on PvP means you’re consenting to getting murdered.
Every class is viable at every level of the game, so don’t feel pressured to play one class over another.
There are normal, rare (blue), epic (purple), and legendary (Orange) gear. You can use the glimmering shards to reroll epic affixes (weapon affixes being things like ice heart, bleed, giant killer) (Armour affixes being things like increased super charge, increased projectile damage).
Major and minor shards Can be used to trade up into glimmering shards.
Make sure to take advantage of all the different chests in your house if you need additional storage.
The runes in your journal are more accurate than the runes on pillars (potential fix coming?)
You can use sliding locomotion and teleport to get faster speed in combat.
Polymorph doesn’t work on Elite enemies.
Some missions are designed to be done as a group. If you’re having trouble, try teaming up!
Will Edit as I think of more
