Character Building

Warriors

As a warrior, your first experience should be invested in Sword, Attack, Parry and Tactics, since these are the primary skills needed for battle. Once the cost of either of these equals the cost of one Hitpoint, raise Hitpoints until its cost exceeds that of the skills’.

Once you have raised Sword, Attack, Parry and Tactics to about base eight (8), try raising Intuition, Agility and Strength. Once you start battling mages, you should also invest in Immunity.

Mages

Invest your first experience in Bless by raising Bless one (1) point, followed by: Bless (again); Dagger or Staff; Lightning Flash or Fire (or both); and Magic Shield. These are the most important spells and skills for the first few quests. Once the cost of any of these equals the cost of one (1) point of Mana, raise Mana until it exceeds the cost of the spells. Once you start battling mages, you should also invest in Immunity.

A mage is very difficult to play, especially in the beginning, but it offers many options and a variety of gameplay that a warrior can never attain. Remember to always bless yourself and to activate Magic Shield before engaging in combat.

Fighting Strategy

You can try to form alliances with other players to face the many adventures that await. An alliance between a mage and a warrior will be much stronger than an alliance composed of either two mages or two warriors.

When exploring the world, always carry at least two torches, one recall scroll, and a healing potion.
Also, it may serve you well to be brave and ask more experienced players for advice and guidance in the chat system by  typing /info <text> which will speak in the global information channel.
