Create a Character

You're watching VisiHow! In this tutorial, we are going to show the basics of creating a character in the Neverwinter MMO game.

Steps

  1. 1
    To get started, we should watch the tutorial on how to download and install the Arc client and set up Neverwinter available at http://visihow.com/Install_Arc_Games_to_Play_Neverwinter_Online
    .

  2. 2
    Once we've done that, and we have the game installed on our system, we'll need to launch the game
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    At that point, we will have to log in
    .
    After we log in, we'll be taken to the character creation window. Once we are on this window, we need to locate the "New Character" button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    We click the "New Character" button
    .
    Once we've clicked the button, we'll watch the intro video.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    We can just press "Esc" to skip past the video
    .
    We'll be taken to the window where we have the option of creating our character. Each time we come to this window, one of the races will be randomly selected. Currently, there are "Half-Orc", "Human", "Elf" (which splits into "Wood Elf", "Moon Elf" and "Sun Elf"), "Half-Elf", "Drow" (which splits into "Menzoberranzan Renegade" and "Drow"), "Dwarf", "Halfling", "Tiefling", and "Dragonborn" (which splits into basic "Dragonborn" and "Metallic Ancestry Dragonborn") races.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    We can also choose between "Female" and "Male"
    .
    There is no difference, materially, between a female and male characters in the game. However, there are sometimes significant differences between the races. For example, if we have the Drow race selected, then we'll have their special ability called "Darkfire", which means that there is a 5% chance to apply Darkfire for four seconds. This will reduce the defense of the target. Drows have bonuses to ability scores. These bonuses vary from race to race. Drows also have another ability, "Trance", which means that Drows heal up at the campfires twice as fast.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    For example, we can click on "Human"
    .
    We will see that the human portrait will change, and so will the options below it. Now, we will see that Humans have the ability called "Versatile Defense", meaning that their defense is 3% higher than that of the other races. Humans have their ability scores, and they have another ability called "Heroic Effort", which gives them extra feat points at levels 10, 15, and 20.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Once we've selected the class and gender that we would like to have, we click on the "Continue" button
    .
    The button is on the lower right-hand side. One click on "Continue" will take us to the next area.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    From this screen, we will choose the class that we would like to be for our character
    .
    Currently, there are eight different classes. The ninth class has not yet been added. Each time we select the class, we will see the portrait of the character change with whatever our choice is. We'll see the different bonuses that the class has. For the "Great Weapon Fighter" class, those are "Spring", "Punishing Charge", "Avalanche of Steel", and "Dungeoneering", unique for it. "Dungeoneering" allows us to open and find special types of items that are usually identifiable as usable by the character.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We can select "Hunter Ranger"
    .
    After we click it, the character portrait will change considerably. Now, we have the options of "Melee Stance", "Hindering Shot", "Hindering Strike", and "Nature" as opposed to "Dungeoneering" from the "Great Weapon Fighter" class.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    We can click "Trickster Rogue"
    .
    Character and abilities change again. This time, it is "Thievery", "Bloodbath", "Bait and Switch", and "Stealth".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    When we have selected the character class that we would like to have, we click "Continue" one more time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    From the new screen, we'll be given the option to place our points into abilities as we like
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We can click "Reroll Scores"
    .
    However, the scores play a very minor role in our character. In the top area under "Ability Scores", next to the three dice, which have "1", "2", and "3" on them, we are told that our primary ability is "Dexterity". The secondary are "Charisma" and "Strength".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We discuss rogues in more detail in our tutorial on creating a rogue on this page
    .
    This is just a basic tutorial that gives us the overview.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    For the purposes of the video, we'll choose the ability as "+2 Dexterity"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    We simply click "Continue"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Once we've clicked "Continue", we can choose a portrait
    .
    In this video, we'll choose red hair.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    If we want to customize the character, we can click the "Customize" button
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    On this page, we have a tutorial on customizing a character as well
    .
    It is recommended to watch that VisiHow tutorial in order to see what will be the better option for us, depending on how we like to create or customize a character.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Now, we click on "Continue" once more
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    From the new screen, we choose from where our character is
    .
    There are a number of different places and histories that we can choose. None of them have any particular bearing on the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Additionally, we can choose our in-game deity or affinity with which we choose ourselves to be
    .
    For example, "Tempus" is a war god. We can choose it if we like. We can choose any of those that we'd prefer to have.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Once we've chosen that, we simply click on "Continue"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Again, we will have choices that have no changes in the character
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    We can type our own biography in "Biography"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    We can create a character name for ourselves in "Character Name"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Alternatively, we simply click "Random", which will create a random character name
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    We click "Begin Adventure"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    When we click "Begin Adventure", we start with our own adventure
    .
    It is covered in our tutorial on this page on beginning our first adventure in the Dungeons and Dragons online game, Neverwinter.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

This concludes our tutorial on creating a character in the Dungeons and Dragon Neverwinter online game. For additional tips and suggestions, please look through our other articles on this page. Thanks for choosing VisiHow! Have a great day!

Understand the Differences between Races

You're watching VisiHow! In this tutorial, we are going to show how to choose between the different races in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO.

Steps

  1. 1
    We are going to start with Drow
    .
    The Drow race is a race very suited towards thievery; however, they can play differently as well. As a general rule, if we hover over the "Ability Scores" option, we will see that Drows get +2 to dexterity and then either +2 to charisma or wisdom. This makes Drows well-suited to being thief or rogue-type characters or rangers.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    The next class in our list is Dwarf
    .
    If we click on the Dwarf character, we will get to see a hairy fat dwarf guy. The Dwarves have the ability called "Stand Your Ground", which increases their resistance to abilities that knock them down or push them back. As we will get hit often by that at higher levels, this is a very good ability to have. Ability Scores lean towards constitution and strength or wisdom. That means that Drows are good fighters and clerics or priests. Drows also have damage resistance to any damage-over-time spells. This can be also quite helpful, especially in player-versus-player combat.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    We have Halflings next in our list
    .
    Let's click on "Halfling". A Halfling is a short little fellow. Many of us may know Halflings as hobbits from the Lord of the Rings. Halflings are very good thieves. If we look at their Ability Scores, we can see that they have dexterity, charisma, and constitution. Halflings are also good fighters if we are able to deal with having a short character, and that does not bother us. They also can make good spell-casters. They have a good ability called "Nimble Reaction", which gives them a deflection chance. Halflings also have the "Bold" ability, which means that they resist control effects. If we combine those with some other class abilities, then it can be powerful combinations.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Next, we have the Tiefling race
    .
    These characters make very good rogues and spell-casters. They also can be fighters. Their Ability Scores are charisma, constitution, and intelligence. Tieflings have an ability called "Bloodhunt", which gives them an extra 5% damage to targets below half health. This can be particularly helpful if we are fighting something, and we are doing a lot of damage. Tieflings also have the ability called "Infernal Wrath", which means that they have a 10% chance to apply damage reduction to their opponents. This is created as an effect that reduces the power of the opponents, but, as a result, this reduces their overall damage to our character.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Next, we have the Dragonborn race
    .
    Both Dragonborn races are a purchased option. If we purchase them, we will have the abilities for Dragonborn characters, which means that we will get more healing, +2 to any two statistics, which is significant, and "Dragonborn Fury". "Dragonborn Fury" means a higher critical chance and greater power. These are the characters that can be anything. They are one of the powerful races in the game, which is why we have to purchase them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Following that, we have Half-Elves, who are a mix of Humans and Elves
    .
    Half-Elves are a mix that is good at just about everything. Their Ability Scores lend them to constitution, wisdom, and charisma. They have an ability to get plus one to any non-class ability score. This is a nice minimal extra ability that does not make a huge difference in the game. What is nice about Half-Elves is that they have a knack for success, which means that they get a cumulative 1% increase to some of their abilities, which are later offset by in-game things, such as Power Stones and items, to give us a little higher chance. Again, it is not game-breaking, and it is not super significant.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Then, we have the Wood Elves
    .
    Each of the Elves is a bit different. Wood Elves, for example, have dexterity, intelligence, and wisdom as their Ability Scores.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    The Moon Elves has the abilities in intelligence, dexterity, and charisma
    .
    They also have crowd-control resistance and a higher Action-Point gain.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    The Sun Elves has ability scores in intelligence, dexterity, and charisma
    .
    Sun Elves have the "Inner Calm" ability, which means that their Action Point gain is higher, and that they have resistance to control.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    As we can note, Sun and Moon Elves are basically the same class, while Wood Elves have a higher critical chance, which makes them better rangers
    .
    The Wood Elves also have the "Wild Step" ability, which means that everything that slows them is not going to work as well. If we want to choose a ranger, then this is a good race to play.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Finally, we have Humans
    .
    Humans are one of the most powerful classes in the game. Partially because their defense is 3% higher than that of the other races. So, if we are playing a front-line fighter, then that's a great thing to have. Second, they have +2 to any ability score, which makes them not quite as powerful as Dragonborns; but still a decent choice. Finally, Humans have "Heroic Effort", which means that they end up getting three more Heroic Feat points than any other class. That is nice. Again, that is not game-breaking; but it can help a bit.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Last but not least, we have massive Half-Orcs
    .
    They make fantastic two-handed-weapon fighters, and ironically, they also make very good thieves. They have the "Furious Assault" ability, which means that the critical damage they do is 5% higher. Then, they have Ability Scores in dexterity, constitution, and strength. This is why they make good thieves. The combination of dexterity and strength is actually powerful because it has a cumulative effect, as our critical hits go higher. Finally, Half-Orcs have "Swift Charge", which allows them to run much faster and reach enemies before other people do.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

This concludes our tutorial on understanding and determining the differences between the races and their suitability to a particular type of class in Neverwinter online game. Obviously, any of the game character race choices that we would like to make for our style of playing are not going to make the game unplayable. Some of the choices just offer a very small edge that some people prefer to have. Choosing what we want and going with that is recommended. However, if we really want to get the most out of a particular character, then we would want to use some of the tips in this guide and apply them to our game play. Thanks for watching VisiHow! Have a great day! We look forward to seeing you in our next video.

Understand the Basic Differences between Classes

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to briefly explain the differences between classes in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO game.

Steps

  1. 1
    The first class that we are going to start with is "Great Weapon Fighter"
    .
    We can see the giant sword held by the particular character. This is a class that deals a large amount of damage with a gigantic sword. The class is not particularly capable when it comes to purely defending. They rather excel at offense. If we like to attack heavily and also have a reasonably good defense, then this is a great class choice.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    Next on our list is "Hunter Ranger"
    .
    This class can mix hand-to-hand and ranged combat. This is helpful especially if we prefer two-weapon fighting. We can attack from range, and when the target gets close enough to us, we can finish it off. It's a good well-rounded class with some abilities that allow it to perform more effectively at range than other classes do. However, in mass combat, Hunter Rangers don't fight well sometimes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Next, we have "Trickster Rogue"
    .
    This is a thief. Trickster Rogues wield two weapons like Hunter Rangers. They do a massive amount of damage. They are very good at stealth. In fact, one of their best abilities is to disappear and reappear attacking the character that they are fighting. If we like rogues and stealth abilities, then this is the great class to play. We have to be sure that we know the limits and that we have a big beefy friend to help us out.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Next, we have the "Devoted Cleric" class
    .
    This is a class that is also quite good at doing damage. Additionally, Devoted Clerics restore health and do a better job at restoring health than all of the other characters. They have some control spells, but as a rule, they tend to simply attack and do damage. It is difficult to play Devoted Clerics sometimes, because when they occasionally heal several other characters at once, a monster might decide that the healing generates enough threat to attack us. We have to manage healing and damage and be careful a bit. It's not that easy to play a Devoted Cleric as other characters, but it is fun.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    "Scourge Warlock" is a damage class
    .
    Scourge Warlocks do a lot of damage. They are stronger than Devoted Clerics; however, that does not make them a tank. They cast spells and do damage. If we like spell-casting classes, this is the class that we should consider. We have to remember that we will be squishy.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    "Guardian Fighter"
    .
    This is the tank class of the game. Guardian Fighters are very strong and tough. They have a shield. When they block monsters, blocking gives them a benefit. They are very easy to play. However, at higher levels, it can be somewhat hard to do things alone, because this class does not do a lot of damage. So, we would need rogues or other squishy characters with us to help us with the damage aspect.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Next, we have "Control Wizard"
    .
    Control Wizards specialize in ice attacks a lot, but, as a general rule, they control and damage their targets. They also have a force and one of the most popular Dungeon and Dragons spells called "Magic Missile". They are also a bit squishy, but they are a powerful class that does a lot of damage and is fun to play.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Finally, we have "Oathbound Paladin"
    .
    Oathbound Paladins are the class that mix healing with protecting people around them. They are fairly good damage class. They are a bit better at solo playing as a melee class than the Guardian Fighter or the Great Weapon Fighter. However, our mileage might vary depending on our experience.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    There is the "Coming Soon" class, which we do not have yet
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We have to keep in mind that each of these classes also have the option to have one or more paths
    .
    So, in case of the Guardian Fighter class, there is one path where we are very defensive; and there is another path where we are more offensive, preferring to attack more than defend. There are variances with the classes once we get into the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Understand How Ability Scores Work

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to go over the Ability Scores available to your character in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO game.

Steps

  1. 1
    In this case, we are using a Guardian Fighter, which we have chosen from our previous tutorial on classes
    .
    However, it does not matter which character we have, as we will be discussing each of the Ability Scores.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    To start with, we will see our class under the title "Ability Scores"
    .
    In this case, it is a Guardian Fighter.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    Our primary abilities will be listed in purple, and our secondary abilities will be listed in blue
    .
    In the event we have any difficulty with colors (we might have our own color setup), there is text that reads, "...your primary ability Is..." and, "Your secondary abilities are...". In our case, "Constitution" is the primary ability, and "Strength" and "Dexterity" are the secondary abilities.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Each of the six abilities corresponds to a set of character strengths and weaknesses
    .
    For example, if we move our mouse over "Strength", we will see that strength measures the physical power of a character. This is the damage that a character can do, but anything else, like the blocking ability, that requires physical power can be improved through strength.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Next, we have "Constitution"
    .
    The constitution measures our character's health, stamina, and overall vitality or vitality force. The more constitution we have, the more hit points we have, and the healthier our character will be.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    The next in our list is "Dexterity", which measures hand coordination, agility, balance, and reflexes
    .
    This is actually important. For Guardian Fighters, dexterity will help us with deflection, dodging, or moving a bit out of the way. So, it increases our overall defense ability.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Then, we have "Intelligence"
    .
    Intelligence describes how well the character learns and reasons. It helps with how fast we get our special powers back as a character when we are playing the game. It is especially important, obviously, to spell-casters, wizards, and even rogues. For fighters, intelligence is not as important; but it is not a statistic that should be overlooked.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Next, we have "Wisdom"
    .
    This is common sense, perception, self-discipline, and empathy. Self-discipline is relevant to the fighter class, because self-discipline will help fighters with resisting certain spell effects.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Finally, we have "Charisma"
    .
    This is the force of personality, persuasiveness, and leadership. Leadership means a lot for a Guardian Fighter because leadership has a contributing bonus to the abilities and statistics of any of our pets, hirelings, or followers. Followers are other characters that we do not control fully, but they follow us around. We can occasionally click buttons and make them do things for us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Next, we will have the Racial Abilities to choose
    .
    Humans will be able to choose one. Dragonborns will be able to choose two. Other races will be able to choose one out of their two preset abilities. For Humans, if we choose "+2 Strength" at 14 Strength, Strength becomes 16. If we choose "+2 Constitution" at 15 Constitution, Constitution becomes 17; but Strength goes back to 14. We may want to figure out what the primary ability value is.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Click the button with something other than the primary ability (in this case, we can click "+2 Strength")
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Then keep clicking "Reroll Scores" until we have the primary ability with which we are happy
    .
    In this video, we have 16 in the primary ability. Our other scores can be low.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can balance scores out
    .
    For example, 15 in primary and secondary abilities, and 10, 11, and 12 in other abilities. These are better scores, but they are not the best. Throughout the course of the game, they do not make that much of a difference. Every two points in an ability score gives us a bump up in our bonus. When we start out, we may want to keep our Ability Scores relatively even.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We can click "Reroll" as many times as we want
    .
    In this video, the button is repeatedly clicked without paying much attention to the numbers. As we keep clicking the button, we will get closer to the point where we reach a set of Ability Scores with which we are happy and which we like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    If we want to be a Great Fighter, then there is 18 Constitution
    .
    This is a high number.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    We would then click on "Continue" to go to the next state where we will adjust our appearance
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

This concludes our tutorial on an overview of how Ability Scores and rerolling the scores work in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO game. Thanks for choosing VisiHow! We do hope that you have a great day. Leave us your comments, suggestions, or questions in the area below. We will answer them.

Customize Character Appearance

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to change and customize the appearance of your character or avatar in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO game.

Steps

  1. 1
    To get started, we are going to need to complete our previous tutorials on race and class selections and Ability Scores on this page
    .
    We should then be on "Appearance Presets". Once we are on appearance, we will have to familiarize ourselves with a few buttons.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    The first one is on the bottom left, to the left of the feet of the character
    .
    It is the "Hide Armor" button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    If we click "Hide Armor", we will see that the character then switches into a pair of primitive boxer shorts and some ragged boots
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Next to that, there are "+" and "-" buttons
    .
    Clicking the "-" button will zoom out to the maximum allowable zoom-out of the character.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Clicking the "+" magnifying glass button will zoom in on the character until we reach the face of the character

Video: Play the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO Customize Character Appearance

Get Started

    • Alex_Avdeev is in process of publishing this** You're watching VisiHow! In this tutorial, we are going to go over the basic controls that we will find in the Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter MMO game when we first start playing. Once we play for a while, we'll master these controls, and we'll be much better at playing.

Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we use the mouse to move the camera around
    .
    The mouse moves us left and right and up and down. It lets us look where we would like to see different things and understand what's happening.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  2. 2
    We use the "W", "A", "D", and "S" keys to move around
    .
    "W" runs the character away from us. "A" runs the character towards us. "A" runs the character off to the left of the screen. "D" runs the character off to the right of the screen. We can change these keys as we like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  3. 3
    We can also move the mouse as we run around

    If we want to access any of the buttons at the top, we can either press the shortcut for them
    .
    For example, "C". By pressing "C", I will press the shortcut for my character. "C" will take me to the character menu. We will be able to see what our character is wearing. In this video, he is wearing almost nothing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    We can see the history of our character

  11. 11
    If we want to choose an icon at the top, or maybe we are new and do not know what to do, we press the "Alt" key
    .
    The key moves us out of the character window. Our character will still be able to be attacked, hurt, or damaged. However, we'll be able to move our mouse pointer over each of the options at the top to see "Home Page", the Zen store, what kind of "Wondrous Bazaar" items we can get, what sort of "Collections" we have obtained. We can move through each of the options at the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    For example, we can hover over the professions icon
    .

  13. 13
    When we have finished looking at the icons, we can simply press the "Alt" key to move back to the action

    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    If we need to meet friends in another instance, we can click on "Change Instance" in the bottom area

    Now what we need to do is run up to the character and talk to him to get a quest

  33. 33
    Then, we click "Thank you
    .
    I'll do that." Now, we've been given a quest.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Private Wilfred told us to go and do something
    .
    In many games, we won't know where to go or what to do. We can see that there will be an option on the upper right-hand side to click our map and see the way-point marker. We click it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Now, we need to follow our map and go to the way-point markers

  38. 38
    We've found a treasure chest now

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

    .
    We should receive a weapon.

    The target is also sparkling. We press "F", and we will receive something from the box.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    In this example, there are other players running around
    .
    Each of these players is doing exactly the same thing as we are doing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    Now, we can check our gear
    .
    We either press "I", or we can press "Alt".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  43. 43
    If we pressed "Alt", we should move the cursor in the bottom-right corner and click the little backpack

    Let's go ahead and click the backpack.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .

    In order to overtake the mountain, we apparently need to take a rather circuitous path
    .
    Now that we have reached the top of the quest area, we will be able to begin completing the quests and journeys.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  58. 58
    To the right, we will see a campfire
    .
    This is where we can rest and heal ourselves should we have any problems. The hit points will trickle back.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  59. 59
    If we press "Alt" and look under our character, we will find different little options
