Welcome to Valnir Rok,
I have been playing the game for a little over a week and have 107 hours logged so i figured it was time for me to help new players with stuff i have learned.
When you first log into the game in the chat box you will see a discord link, take note and join that discord channel you do not need to be in it talking or in any of the channels. You will need this if you ever run into problems i.e get disconnected and cant get back into the game.
Pick marigolds often if you are ever poisoned these heal poison, and eight marigolds and a drink horn make a health potion which comes in real handy.
Join a clan even if you want to be a hermit many this in this game are almost if not impossible to do/ kill alone.
Capslock is local voice chat.
DO NOT block caves or npc houses, not only is this a dick move that pisses people off it can get you in trouble.
Learn the map it helps others find you if you know where you or they are.
Do not drink from the ocean ever.
If you need gear but dont want to make it run around and loot npc towns gear and food can be found in bags crates chests on tables and shield can be leaning against walls.
If you need help ask in chat this game by far has one of the best communities i have seen in a game. (I am not saying there are not trolls)
Do not attempt to solo kill werewolves, trolls or draugers until you reach an armor rating of 90
ATM bows are better than crossbows shoot a whole lot faster equals more dps.
Eggs + Cheese + mushrooms + bread = sandwich
The game is early alpha so there are bugs, Most of these bugs can be fixed by relogging.
If you have the armor bug where it wont let you equip armor from your inventory go to a crate you own put armor in it then drag it onto your character
If you have the bug that wont let you drop certain items place them in a crate
If you want to dye an item and it will not let you (its a found item or has been colored already) try disassembling it then try to dye it.
Carry a lot of bandages, arrows, and health potions.
Best items in the game atm.
