Steps

  1. 1
    We have no characters, so we're going to go ahead and click on Create.

    That's going to open up our character creation window.

  3. 3
    We have a selection of different character types.
    There are melee characters, which you can see on the right side it explains to you they engage in hand-to-hand and up close combat. This lets you basically run in and beat on things with a sword or a hammer or whatever you may choose.

  4. 4
    Next we have spellcasters, and these are people who use magic.
    Some of them use healing magic, some of them use fireballs, and things like this. It just depends on what you're interested in. This is a high fantasy game, so you will have this type of thing.

  5. 5
    Specialists are other character types who do different things; ranged combat, traps, rogues, thieves, archers, things to that effect.

  6. 6
    And then we have iconic classes, which are a special set of characters that start out at a high level and are very powerful, including equipment and quite a few interesting things they can do.
    This is a purchased class though, and since we're on a free account, we don't have access to that.

  7. 7
    So we're going to go back up to Melee.
    Now any of these classes, you're going to click on Class. This lets you choose Fighter, Barbarian, Paladin, Monk, etc.

  8. 8
    So back up to Style.
    If you want Spell, click on Class, and you've got Sorcerers, Clerics. Sorcerers are fireballs, Clerics are your healers, Wizards are also fireballs and asset spells, and we have Favored Souls which are kind of a holy higher, and then your Druids which are nature people and have a little wolf companion pet.

  9. 9
    For our purposes, we're just going to stick with a Melee class because it's easy.
    We're going to go down to Class. Now the easiest class to start out with is going to be a class that does a lot of damage. The class that does the most damage and has the least amount of buttons to push is probably going to be a Barbarian.

  10. 10
    However, we also have the option of a Fighter, standard fighter, think about a medieval soldier.
    Barbarian is obviously the medieval axe-wielding barbarian.

  11. 11
    And then your Paladin, who is kind of your holy knight.

  12. 12
    Now on the right side here, we have a list that tells you what each character does.
    Click More Info for about what they do.

  13. 13
    And then we have the actual statistics for the class.

  14. 14
    Next, we would choose a Path.

  15. 15
    The Path is a predetermined set.
    So here we have Vanguard Warrior, the fighters that go out in the front.

  17. 17
    Again, Whirlwind Fighter.
    Stats, more info about the class, and then the general topics and discussions. These are fighters that use two weapons.

  18. 18
    So for our purposes, we have the Vanguard Warrior and the Stalwart Soldier.
    According to this, the Stalwart Soldier is the easiest class to play, so that's the one we're going to take.

    Next, we're going to go down to Race.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  20. 20
    You have a selection of races.
    It's a little bit like the Lord of the Rings. Humans, Elves, Halfings, Dwarves. Then we have your Warforged, Half Elves, Drow Elves, and Half Orcs. Drow Elves are actually a race that isn't unique to here, but neither are Half Elves or Half Orcs if you kept up with Lord of the Rings or any other fantasy, you're familiar with these. For our purposes, we're going to go ahead and pick Human because that's the easiest one. You can see more information about what each of the races do, what their stats are, what they start out with, how things are.

    Let's go ahead and go down to Look.
    Here, you can zoom out using your mouse wheel, or zoom in. You can also use the plus or minus keys to zoom in and out.

    You have different hairstyles that you can use.
    You can hold the right button and shift back and forth through these.

    If you would like, you can click back on Race to change to Male if that's your preference.
    I'm going to go ahead and choose Male.
