Well, now your client opened, you have
learned what all buttons for, its time to start to play. Now your character is
level 0. For to gain level you need to get experience. Way to get experience is
to kill mobs. Lets walk around town, but donТt forget that you are low level
character yet and will be very hard to fight with high level mobs and sometimes
just not real. Thats why you need to find someone who is just 1-2-3 levels higher than you. All levels are viewable on notice window when you bring
mouse cursor on mob avatar. For example:
- Mouse (level 0). For the victory
over mouse on level 0 you will get 1 experience point. Also after victory you
will get 1 peace of cheese. Cheese can be sold on Dump. For 1 peace of cheese you
will get 1 gold coin (you will need money for to gain levels or to buy gear,
weapons and other things).
- Alley cat (level 1). For the victory
over alley cat on level 0 you will get 4 experience points. After victory you
will have a chance to get collar from mob. It will be automatically equipped on
you. Congratulations, its your 1st gear that you have got from mob.
Now you can get some more collars and then to sell them in Jewellery shop.
- Dog (level 3). For the victory over
dog on level 0 you will get 16 experience points. Also you will have a chance to
get a dog fang that can be sold in Dump with cheese.
Now when you started to fight with mob you

you can see fight log. In fight log you see how much losses you have done in rival,
what special skills or effects were used in fight and how many gold, experience
and what things you have got after fight if you win.
Be careful, some mobs are too high for you.
And you have at start some potions in inventory that will help you to win in
your 1st fights. Use those potions in fight if your health is
getting too low.
While you killing mobs you can see numerals
under map, one of the lines is your experience. It may have white, green,
yellow and red colour.
- White numerals means that you do not
have enough experience for to gain level.
- Green numerals means that you have
enough experience for to gain 1 level.
- Yellow numerals means that you have
enough experience for to gain 2 levels.
- Red numerals means that u have
maximum experience and its enough for to gain 3 levels and if you will not gain
level your experience will not count.
Make decision for yourself how to level up
your character. 3 levels in a row or by 1 level, because if mob will kill you -
you will lose half experience points.
Now, when you have enough gold coins and
experience for to gain level you need to go in chosen school and to push in opened window.
Congratulations, you have just gained you 1st
