I have never played around a tabletop, so am not sure how that translates to here.
I’m a detail driven person, I’m always striving to research the mechanics of a situation before I apply it. In ROK, I’ve just been trying to click on everything in order to learn.
For example: appropriate levels, equipment, or skills required for a given task/assignment. I’m spending a long time deliberating trying to insure my character is good enough , before I snap and just roll the dice and hope for the best as I don’t know what is right or wrong.
Clicking on everything to learn is a pretty good start. Just don't click on the wrong things. The tip boxes have good info too so don't ignore those. If you haven't played around a tabletop then I can only give you this advice. Just imagine if it were you, what would you do to prepare. Look at your character sheet a lot and see if you're capable. You get a good idea by how you do in combat. If the town bully spins you easy then don't even think about a dungeon or the plains.
That is fair advice, I should focus more on combat in town to get an idea of where I sit for now. Thank you.
Also: Are ranged weapons very useful? How do they work regarding simultaneous carriage of melee weapons? What about spears being dual use?
After chatting with Morwood, the shield maker, and his brothers being liked by arrows, are ranged or two handed weapons even worth it?
Even in town there are some seriously tough creatures so don't think everything in town is easy. If you upgraded then you'd have access to some hidden areas as well which gives you the edge.
Try equipping weapons in your hands and see how your character sheet changes, that's what I do to get the best combination. No, I won't be sharing my best combination *laugh*.
Thank you. Yes. Those giant spiders are a pain. I haven’t tried going after the giant ant but I have a feeling I’ll need anti-venom. I’ve only hit level three, so I might continue low level quests until I hit level four.
