How to Find Safe Zones in the Wild
Just look for the butterflies!When you setup tent/bedroll near them it notifies you that you are in a safe zone with a 0% chance of ambush.Also, whenever you die and are rescued by some fellow adventurer, they typically leave you in a safe zone as well.
How to keep loot on logout
As the bug that makes your loot vanish appears to be related to the backpack, me and my friend move all our stuff to pocket before logging out and then transfer it all back when logging in, unfortunately doesn’t help if you crash.
General Guide to Multi Bag Management
Pretty simple, keep a bag for storing extra items on the ground near the green shirt merchant (they tend to be the closest merchant to the entrance) in each of the cities.I also keep a “trash” bag in each city to hold stuff that you can’t sell/deconstruct…
I tend to keep an extra bag with me while outside in case I come across loot that is too heavy. I store extra potions, teas, traps, stuff I’m not going to sell in my extra bag and drop it. Run to the nearest merchant or a stash box to offload the loot. And then return to pickup my bag and continue adventuring.
How to make money
Haven’t found much in the way of quests in the starting zone but there is plenty of profit to be had, just takes a while.
Clearing out the actual bandit camps is the most obvious and most difficult option. The final lieutenants that spawn tend to carry cleaver halberds which sell for 70 plus they key to the final room with an ornate chest with decent loot options. Grabbing the rest of the weapons and bits will usually net you a decent amount of silver too.
Fishing also turned out to be hilariously profitable and the gathering spots respawn quickly. Taking the fish and turning them into various meals has netted me quite a lot of silver while I was working towards the blue sand armor. Turning them into meals effectively doubles their value plus you have plenty of food should you need it. Actually all the crafting options are pretty decent money makers if you have the ingredients for them.
Creating travel Rations at a kitchen increase how many you get!
If you’re like me, you’re a busy adventurer who doesn’t have time to sit around killing 5 deer to cook their meat so you can fast travel to some shitty marsh you’re told is holy. Don’t despair! Cooking Travel Rations has never been easier with this 1 simple trick!
If you create your travel rations at a kitchen (such as inside a player home), or at a cooking pot on a campfire, you get 3x the amount you would get if you crafted them in your survival inventory.
Melee Combat Tips
Be patient and don’t be afraid of blocking attacks, even if you don’t have a shield.
Keep a reasonable distance from your target. If there’s more than 1 enemy, try to kite until one is separated enough from the other and punish.
If fighting a very large, scary foe… Drop your backpack. Use blocks only as emergency and try to kite and dodge.
Pay attention to their impact bar. (The grey bar under their health.) If it turns light orange/brown, they’re blocking. Don’t hit then. When the grey bar falls below half, your enemy will stagger with each hit, allowing for more punishment from you. Once depleted, the enemy will fall. Use this to get free damage in! But becareful because they get up really quick.
I’d recommend having a ranged weapon and your melee weapon on a skill slot. Being able to switch quickly made a world of a difference for fluidity. Try to get a free shot in or two before combat, switch to melee and rek.
Manage your stamina. Drink water before each fight. Having the +Stamina Regen active while fighting is massive.
If you’re losing badly… run! If you break the line of sight of the enemy, chances are they’ll lose track of you. Once you’re away, avoid sleeping (so they don’t heal) and heal yourself with any pots and bandages. Once healed up, get back in there and smash your enemy down! Or get smashed by him…
Traps help bring down a tough foe. Generally, I’m too lazy to sit down and set traps and all that. But, they can be a godsend for a particularly tough enemy. Getting some shots in with a ranged weapon and having them step on traps can dish out so much damage before you have to “really” start fighting.
Melee weapons have two types of attacks. Think Light attack and Heavy attack. Duh! But, what a lot of people don’t realize that if you do a heavy attack immediately after a light attack— you actually get a different animation than if you did the heavy attack by itself. Play around and make some combos!
Don’t be afraid of combat. Pay attention to each enemy, learn how they move, what patterns they tend to have, just keep fighting! Even fight the really tough looking foes. Early on I wanted to smash my head against the wall while getting crushed some big time baddies. But, when you finally land that kill it is so so satisfying. In the end. And, through the failure it made me a better player.
Best of luck adventurers! I hope this helps. If it doesn’t, well, perhaps the greatest advice I can give is that you can never carry enough bandages.
