Create Your First Character in Gloria Victis Online PVP for Windows 8
Grimm, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to create a new character in the Gloria Victis online game.
To do this, we need to go down to the "Create new character" button once we've logged in
To get help logging in, make sure to watch our other tutorial on how to log in.
For now, we'll go ahead and click on "Create new character" at the bottom of the screen to get started with the process
Once click on "Create new character" will open a screen with a character in underwear
At this time, the game is in a Beta stage, so we only have the option for male characters.
By tapping on different icons on the second row of the panel on the left, we can choose different races
The first image represents the "Midlanders" race
The second is the "Izmirs" race
The last two races are currently unavailable, but later they will be available
To keep it simple, "Midlanders" are basically English
"Izmirs" are Vikings, more or less
That's a very over-simplified part of the story line.
Once we've selected the race we'd like to have, we'll go up and click on the number "2" at the top of the panel
Once click on number "2" will allow us to adjust things, such as the "Height" of our character or how short our character would like to be
We can increase the "Body size", making our guy larger or considerably smaller
We can give him a big head or much smaller head
We can change the "Shoulder size" as well
The length of the arms increase along with the shoulders, so we can be a pretty creepy looking fellow if we choose to.
Once we've done all that, we can also change the skin tone by clicking on one of the squares at the bottom
When happy, click on the number "3" to zoom in on the character's head
This will allow us to change the face. As this is a Beta game, there are a limited number of faces available to choose from.
We can scroll through the different faces by clicking on the arrows before and after the number across from the word "Face" in the left panel
Add some "Facial hair" if desired
We can add "Hair" to the top of the head as well
Change the "Hair color" by clicking on one of the colored squares
When we're done, we'll click on the number "4" at the top right of the panel
This will allow us to name our character. We also have a set of initial starting attributes and our basic equipment.
This is an important thing to consider as we click on the different pieces of equipment
We have the light armor on the left, which includes a great ability our stamina
This is important for fighting, but it is not nearly as protective.
Then we have our middle armor
On the end, we have a much heavier armor
At the lower levels it's not going to make a big difference which one of the armors we choose, as none of them are very good.
For "Strength", "Constitution" and "Dexterity", in certain points of the game, approximately every 130 points, they cost 2 points to raise
At the lower levels, they only cost 1 point each to raise.
Clicking the max arrow will increase each one 5 at a time
We can add sets of 5 at a time and boost ourselves up accordingly.
"Dexterity" increases our ability make incredible hits, increases damage with bows and daggers
"Constitution" is health, regeneration and stamina
It helps the character defend against things like hammers and maces.
"Strength" obviously increases all of our damage, but also slashing damage reduction
This is one of the better ones if we're using swords, which are one of the better weapons in the game.
We can go down and click on the speaker icon to choose a voice; although, there are presently no extra voices to choose from
However, this is not an issue.
Click in the text box next to "Character name" to give the character a name
We'll name our character "VisiHow". The name needs to be at least give characters long.
Then click on "Create character" at the bottom of the panel
Once we've created our character, we'll note that the character is ready
We can left click and drag the mouse around to view the character from different angles
When we're ready, we can click on "Play"
That, however, is another tutorial.
