Game Notes

  • Picking up Treasure: The mouse cursor will turn yellow when your mouse is over a treasure you can pickup. If it does not pickup, move to a diagonal tile and try again.
  • Melee Attacking: The target monster or hero will have a green square on the ground beneath their feet when you can attack. If the square is red you can not attack until you have recovered from the first attack. The number of attacks per second is based off of your character's stats and skills. When lower level characters try to melee attack other characters or monsters and have not raised their accuracy skill, it may be very difficult to do any damage to the target.
  • Magic Spell Casting: Your spell casting range goes up as your level, stats and skills increase. So a low level mage will have to be close to the target when casting spells.
  • Map link tiles: Most maps and dungeons are connected with map links. These links are a different colored tile. You will need to position yourself on the link and stop walking. Then you will be transported to the new location.
