How Do I Change My Charater Image?

So you want to change your chara? Your chara is your little person who walks around the map world. To change your chara, click your Messages icon and click the Chara Options link at the top of your Inbox.

Click on a new chara to select it. You’ll need to enter a building, and exit – so the map can swap your chara.

How Do I Open Locks?

Picking locks is really pretty simple.

001First, you need a lockpick tool. You can buy the recipe at a vendor and make one. Or you can buy a lockpick tool from a merchant (if another player is selling one).

I recommend learning to make your own – crafting can come in handy.

When you enter a building and come across containers (door, boxes, crates, gates – you name it), it may be locked – so you’ll need to pick the lock – with your lockpick tool.  Sometimes container require a special item (not a key necessarily) so even though you have a lockpick tool, you still won’t be able to open it. The container may say it’s ‘locked’ but it actually requires another tool or item to open it.

To use your lockpick tool, just click the ‘Pick this lock?’ link. The screen will update and tell you if you picked the lock or not. If you unlock container, you’ll gain XP.  If you fail to pick the lock, you’ll be advised, and need to try again.

Containers can become locked or unlocked at any time. The ‘World Master’ can decide to lock anything as he wishes 🙂 So always have a lockpick tool handy.

Lockpick tools come in a variety of sizes. Basic lockpicks have 10 uses, some have 25, 50 and even 100 uses. Crafted lockpick tools have better durability.

How Do I Probe for Traps?

Probing for traps is really pretty simple.

5_005First, you need a trap probe. You can buy the recipe at a vendor and make one. Or you can buy a trap probe from a merchant (if another player is selling one).

I recommend learning to make your own – crafting can come in handy.

When you enter a building and come across containers (door, boxes, crates, gates – you name it), you may need to probe for traps. Even though the container has the line ‘Probe for Traps?’ – you don’t necessarily need to. You could risk it and just open the container… or not.

To use your probe, just click the ‘Probe for Traps?’ link. The screen will update and tell you if you found a trap or not. If the container is trapped, you’ll defuse the trap and gain XP.  If the container is not trapped, you’ll be advised.

Containers can become trapped or untrapped at any time. The ‘World Master’ can decide to trap anything as he wishes 🙂 So always have a trap prove handy.

Traps probes come in a variety of sizes. Basic probes have 10 uses, some have 25, 50 and even 100 uses. Crafted trap probes have better durability.

How Do I Enter a Building?

When you first start R2RG, you start at the Wharf. There’s a building just off the path as you leave the wharf. If you walk up to the building, and step on the ‘doormat’ (the funky arrow icon thingy), you’ll get a pop up info box that tells you more about the building (or area etc).

If you decide to enter the building, click your Map icon (in the bottom right area of the game screen). This will take you into the buidling so you can interact with the NPC inside.

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 Use Armor?

462_holy-armorTo use armor, simply leave it in your inventory. Having your armor in your inventory will use its abilities automatically on you (raise your stats).

Clicking on your armor to use it on yourself could make your armor disappear! (if it has 0 uses). Armor will raise your stats automatically and make you more effective to fight monsters, be able to equip better weapons etc.

You can only equip one piece of armor at a time.

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.

Where Do I Get a Weapon?

243_54_083sYou can get basic weapons and supplies from a Vendor. A Vendor is a building that sells world items at inflated prices.

You can also get weapons from Merchants. Merchants sell other player items, usually at a lower price than a Vendor, and often quest items and other rare items.

You can also buy or find recipes to craft your own weapons. Player-made weapons do more damage and have more durability than Vendor-sold weapons.
