2.2.2 Newbie attacks - for younger adventurers
As a younger adventurer, even if you have not yet joined a house or entered a class, you have three basic Brawling attacks: 1) KICK 2) PUNCH 3) HEADSLAM By simply doing KICK RAT, for instance, you will attack once. When you recover balance (HELP BALANCE), you can punch, kick, or headslam again. You could also use a shortsword by WIELDing it then SLASHing your target. Generally however, it is more effective to use your Brawling skills. OTHER ATTACKS ------------- There are plenty of other attacks, all specific to your class, and generally quite a bit more effective than the newbie attacks. You may use the KILL command, which will automatically select the best attack to use for you! For example: If you are a new magi, the KILL command would select the FIRELASH ability. Ask others of your class for more details on these attacks. FIGHTING - DON'T JUST STAND THERE! ---------------------------------- Perhaps the most important lesson that you can learn early on is not to just stand there and let yourself be killed. If you are fighting a kobold, for instance, and the kobold has beaten you nearly to death, run away, or heal. All too often we see newbies, seemingly frozen with fear, as something pummels them to death. All you have to do is simply move. Most things will not follow you (there are exceptions of course, but you won't be encountering them until you are bigger). It should also be noted that adventurers under level 11 will be unable to attack other adventurers. HEALING, HERBS, VIALS, ETC -------------------------- In order to fight more efficiently, you will want to get some healing herbs, potions, elixirs, minerals, and the like. For instance, the health elixir will replenish some health when you drink it. Irid moss will replenish both health and mana when you eat it.
