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.
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.

There are dozens of ways to make money. I’ll only scratch the surface of this topic and let you come up with other means
1. Finding free items and sell them to a Vendor
There are tons of free items in the world. Everything from resources, food, recipes, basic weapons – everything you can pick up and add to your inventory will have some basic worth. Selling these items to a Vendor will give you instant cash.
2. Craft Items and sell them on a Merchant to Other Players
Player crafted items are more valuable and have more ‘uses’ (durability) than basic world items. Basic weapons only have 25 uses, when player crafted weapons have minimum uses started at 50. Selling your crafted items on a Merchant so other players can buy them – will yield you extra money. Starting players always need items or weapons, and some players just don’t want to spend time crafting.
3. Find Quest Items and Sell them on a Merchant to other Players
Some quest items may be very difficult to attain, so these items can command a hefty price at a Merchant.
Hence why the game is called Rags to Riches! Money can equal power. Money can buy better recipes to craft better weapons, armor and allow you to advance levels quicker than others. Being at a higher level means you can kill monsters that drop unique items, or drop larger amounts of gold.
You can visit a bank and deposit money. A bank paying daily interest of 0.001% on every 1000 gold you leave in the bank.
Example: If you deposited 1000gp in the bank, you would earn 1gp daily as interest. So the more you deposit, the more you can earn.
You can decide not to use the bank, and when players inspect you – you can look all ‘pimpin’ with a ton of change on you 🙂
To turn in a quest, you’ll first need to locate the item that the quest giver has asked you to return with.
For example: If you’re asked to return with a Bent Copper Lockpick, then go make or buy one, and return with the Bent Copper Lockpick in your inventory.
When you enter the building with the NPC who gave you the quest – the reward will automatically be given to you, and the item will be removed from your inventory.
All quests give XP as reward. Some quests give money.
To get a quest, you first need to find an NPC (non player character) who will give you a quest.
Example: Fraak in Village Grodo asks you to find him a Bent Copper Lockpick.
When a new quest is available, and sound will play and the option to ‘accept’ the quest will be given to you. If you decide not to accept the quest, it will be available for you anytime you return to the building.
Once you accept a quest, an entry is added to your Quest Journal .
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.
To 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.
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.
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.
