How Do I Make a Party (Group)?

To create a party you’ll need to click the Messages icon and click Friends List.

1. To invite a player, click the Create Party link beside their name in your Friends List. They’ll get a message from you. If you’re not on the person’s Friends List – you are now, so they can join. If you are the person requesting others to join, you are the leader. Only the leader can ask others to join a party – else you’re creating separate parties.

2. To join, click the Join link in your Friends List. To decline, click the Decline link – the player who invited you will get a message.

3. Once you’ve joined, the join link turns to a Party link. Click this link to pop a new chat window to chat with the other players in your party.

4. To leave a party, click the Leave link. This only makes you leave a party, everyone else stays. Please don’t drink and drive!

5. To disband your party (only the leader has this option), click the Disband link. This will remove everyone from your party. Get out!

6. You can/should only be in one party at a time.

7. If you are in a party and go street-side (back to the map), all the monsters will be respawned for the party area.

8. XP and gold is divided evenly by the number of players in the party (example: party of 4, for 1000xp, would each get 250 xp).

9. The party leader receives all drop items, so it’s kinda funny to suddenly have 9 horsemint leaves and you didn’t kill any toads…. So be kind and share the goods with your other party members.

10.
It is possible to go off (split up) and fight in different buildings, and STILL be in a party. XP and gold will still be divided for each kill, but only those who are present (in the same room of the same building) at the time the monster dies – will get xp and gold. The leader will catch all your monster drop items – so it isn’t worth it really, unless you feel like giving away stuff and getting half xp/gold.

11. Important: Add yourself to your own Friends List, then if no one joins your party, you can click the Leave link and be able to kill the party instance.

How to Battle Effectively

When you’re battling in caverns or some region that has many rooms, hallways etc – once you kill monster in the area and proceed through the region – you can go back and the monsters will not re-spawn (until you return to the Map).

Example: If you battle through the Goblin Lair, you eventually will be able to go back and forth within the lair without encountering any monsters. Once you progress into another section of the lair with new monsters, you will have the chance to fight again.

This can be good for healing, taking a break, or waiting for other party members to join you.

Sometimes there may be vendors within the region, where you can go sell items to free up space in your inventory, or buy more healing items or resources to craft new items.

How To Cast a Spell

There are two types of spells.

Healing Spells

Healing spells will raise your skills (Health, Fatigue, Strength, Mind, Luck). To use a healing spell, add it to your inventory and click on it. Clicking on the spell will cast it on yourself.

Damage Spells

Damage spells can only be used against monsters. When you attack a monster, the fight will automatically pick the first weapon in your inventory (from left to right). Your spell will be used the same as any other weapon.

To change weapons during battle, click on another weapon/spell to jump it to the front of your inventory.

How Do I Raise my Fatigue Skill?

So you want to raise your Fatigue? The Fatigue skill in the game is used in almost every action. Having Fatigue skill at it’s highest value possible will ensure you are successful at whatever action you do – be it attacking, crafting, picking locks, probing for traps etc.

You can raise you Fatigue skill in a number of ways.

Healing your Fatigue

If your Fatigue skill has dropped down, you can visit a Tavern to heal it back up. There are also world items like, food, potion and magical items that will raise your Fatigue skill too.

Increasing your Fatigue Skill above its Maximum Value

It is possible to raise your Fatigue skill above its maximum value. The can be done using a armor item. Find, buy or make an armor item and equip it in your inventory. Simply by leaving the armor item in your inventory will automatically raise your Fatigue skill – if the armor item is set to raise that skill.

Locks, Traps, Crafting and Attacking are all dependent on the Fatigue skill – so the higher the better.

How Do I Raise My Health?

So you want to raise your Health? The Health skill in the game is used mostly in Battle.  Having Health skill at its highest value possible will ensure you are successful at winning the battle against your foe.

You can raise you Health skill in a number of ways.

Healing your Health

If your Health skill has dropped down, you can visit a Tavern to heal it back up. There are also world items like, food, potion and magical items that will raise your Health skill too.

Increasing your Health Skill above its Maximum Value

It is possible to raise your Health skill above its maximum value. The can be done using a armor item. Find, buy or make an armor item and equip it in your inventory. Simply by leaving the armor item in your inventory will automatically raise your Health skill – if the armor item is set to raise that skill.

Since battle is ‘turn-based’, you can pause between attacks and use healing items to replenish your Health skill.

How Do I Heal?

So you got hurt eh? Took a tumble in battle and need to mend your wounds?

There are a number of ways to heal in Saralidan

1. A Tavern

A Tavern is the most basic way to heal, and takes the most time. In Village Grodo, there is a Tavern called ‘The Rusty Spear’. When you enter the tavern you’ll see it’s a real-time chatroom. So while you’re healing you can connect with other players.

While in a Tavern, you heal 10 points every 30 seconds. So, if your full health is 60 and you’re currently at 26, you need to heal 34 points – that will take you about 2 minutes.

A Tavern is a great place to drop a comment about items you’re looking for, etc – others will visit the Tavern and could send you a PM (private message).

Oh.. and click the ‘refresh’ link in your Inventory window (or wait for your Character panel to refresh) to see your stats increase. When you’re full health again – get back on that horse!

2. Eating Food, Drink Potions, Cast Spells

The real way to heal in Saralidan is by eating food, drinking potions, using magic items or spells to heal yourself while in battle. Having to go back to a Tavern every time you get yourself hurt will take a long time to rack up that experience (XP).

You can make your own food, potions, spells – or buy them from Saralidan Vendors or Merchants.

How Do I Switch Weapons in Battle?

You can switch weapon at anytime, in battle or not. To do this you’ll need a few weapons on your inventory. Simply click on the weapon you want to make your primary weapon. A pop up will appear asking you if you want to do that – click OK.

Ta Da! You’ve now set your new weapon! This is great if you have a weapon that deals a specific type of damage – like DmgLuck for example. You can use your DmgLuck weapon to beat down the monster’s luck skill. When the monster’s luck skill is at 0 (zero) it will constantly miss you, and now you can switch to your DmgHealth weapon and attack it to kill it!

You can’t use a DmgHealth (or Dmg… anything for that matter) on yourself. One HealHealth, etc types of items etc will affect you.

I’m Being Attacked! What Do I Do Now?

What?! Savage creatures living in Saralidan? NO?!

Ok, don’t worry. You can do two things.

1. Face Adversity head on – and Attack!

Click the Map icon to attack the creature. This will take you to the battle screen. See How To Battle

2. Run Like the Wind!

To flee, or avoid a battle – beacause you’re too busy gathering resources for your crafting… You can press any arrow key and then press the Z key to ignore the random attack.

How To Battle

So this is your first battle eh? Are you ready? Let’s have a quick huddle and go over your checklist

1. Got a Weapon?

Got a weapon? If not, better go buy a weapon. Or you can craft a weapon.

Once you have a weapon, you’re ready to fight.

2. Got Something to heal you?

Got some bread, a potion, a healing ring? If not, you can buy some bread. Or you can craft a healing spell.

Once you have something to heal you, you’re almost done.

Learn how to heal

Fight!

When the battle screen starts out, you see the monster (a Giant Bat for this example). You can see its stats

Health:35; Fatigue: 35; Strength: 12; Mind: 8; Luck: 2

My stats are about the same, so I think I’ll do ok. If I have a healing item (I have some moldy bread… it’ll do) so atleast I can heal during battle.

How to Battle

Click the ‘Attack’ link in the battle screen. Watch the stats and messages that show up each time you click it. Also pay attention to your stats in your Character window.

As I’m fighting my health and fatigue are being affected. I see my health is getting low, so I click on my Moldy Bread item to eat a piece of it (yuck! but least it heals me a bit – wish I had a better healing item)

The battle will continue, and if you win, you’ll receive XP, maybe some gold, and maybe a reward item that is ‘dropped’ from the Giant Bat.

If you lose, meaning one of your stats reaches 0 (zero) or below zero (very rare), the battle will be over, and you’ll have to take the ‘walk of shame’ back to a Tavern to heal.
