2.1. Characteristic Allocation Each character has six specific attributes,the specific points determine the build of the character. Each time the character gains a level you gain three points to allocate to the attribute of your choice,until the maximum level of 140.
Attribute points range from 10 - 200(maximum).
(1) STR (Strength):STR points define the power of a character.
2 STR = +1 Max HP (160 Str = +80 Max HP)
1 STR = +2 Max SP (160 Str = +320 Max SP)
1 Str = +5 Max Weight (160 Str = +800 Max Weight)
Hands: +1 base damage for every 20 Str (+8)
Archery: +1 base damage for every 30 Str (+2)
Weapons: +0.2% base damage for every 1 Str (+32.00%)
Related skills = Mining, Hand Attack, Manufacturing
(2) VIT (Vitality):VIT Points define the life force of a character.
1 VIT = +3 Max HP (51 Vit = +153 Max HP)
HP Regen: +3d(Vit/3) with max Vit/2 (+3d17 with max 25)
SP Regen: +3d(Vit/10) = +33d5
Reduces all incoming damage by 1 every 20 Vit (51 Vit = +2)
(3) DEX (Dexterity) : The DEX points define the agility of a character.
1 Dex = +2 Defense Ratio (129 Dex = +258 Defense Ratio)
+1.2 Physical Hit Ratio for every 1 Dex above 50 (129 Dex = +95 Physical Hit Ratio)
Related skills = Fishing, Archery, Short Sword, Long Sword, Fencing, Axe, Shield, Hammer
(4) INT (Intelligence):INT defines the Intelligence of a character. The more INT points you have, the higher circle magic you will get.
2 Int = +1 Max MP (59 Int = +29 Max MP)
Every 2 Int above 50 increases casting probability.
Int is required for learning magic spells at the Wizard tower.
Related skills = Farming, Alchemy
(5) MAG (Magic):MAG points define the magical ability of a character.Higher Mag increases MP Recovery, attack success and damage.
1 mag = +2 Max MP (18Mag = +36 Max MP)
MP regen: +3d(Mag/3) = +3d6
+1.25 Magic Hit Ratio for every 1 Mag above 50 (18 Mag = +0 Magic Hit Ratio)
1 mag = 0.3% magic damage(18 Mag = +5% magic damage)
+1 Magic Resistance for every 1 Mag above 50 (18 Mag = +0 Magic Resistance)
Related Skills = Magic, Staff Attack
(6) CHR/LUCK (Charisma/ now Luck):The CHR points define the Luck of a character.The increase of CHR points enables you to buy items at cheaper prices and gain a better chance of getting a drop.
+0.33% Crush Chance for every 1 Luck (10 Luck = +3.30% Crush Chance)
+0.125% NPC Drop Chance for every 1 Luck (10 Luck = +1.50%).
HP(Health Points), MP(Mana Points), SP(Stamina Point), and MaxLoad (Maximum Weight Load) will be calculated by compounding the characteristics above. Max Hp = Vit*3 + Lvl*2 + Str/2(Xelima Talent subtracts 35% from this calculation) Max MP = Mag*2 + Lvl*2 + INT/2 Max SP = Lvl*2 + Str*2 Max.Load = (Str*5) + (Lvl*5)
2.2. Setting characteristic at the beginning
As the above image shows the game will allow you to pre allocate points to make Warrior,Mage or Master,this is for advanced players only.
If you want to swing weapons like swords, axes or hammers you can choose a warrior.
Pure warrior(No Int or Mag) has much more HP and higher Defence,although many Warriors choose to take some points in INT and MAG to defend against Mages.
-PFM Warr(36 Int/20 Mag), Zerker(59 INT/20`50 Mag) and AMP Warr(112 INT- "B-Mage") are all options depending on the style the player wishes to adopt.
These "old skool" builds are now balanced around the New Talent system and careful consideration of the attributes gained or lost with each Talent will be needed to get the best out of your build.
If you prefer to use magic, you should try a mage. Mages may have hard time to level-up at early stages, as compared with warrior. However, after learning some attack spells, mages can cast harmful spells on their enemies and show their great power. The reason, that mages have a difficulty in hunting, is the amount of mana. Without mana, it is next to impossible for mages to hunt and fight,after collecting a basic MP set a mage can begin his journey.
You can develop your mage in certain ways with INT, STR, DEX, and VIT.
Pure MageRefers to a (200 Int/200 Mag) build this requires Min 15 Str to equip the basic Armours eg. leathers
'Dex Mages will usually take the min 15 Str but opt for lower Int and Mag in favour of Dex(50 and upwards) and Vit,this build is often referred to as a support Build forfeiting damage in flavor of survive-ability and acting as a defender to his team Amping , In-vising and casting spells to break Para etc.This type of build also suits Fencers and a whole new world of builds has opened up with the new Talent system.
Battle MageUsually built around 104 - 130 Str a B-Mage utilises the best of both worlds,being able to cast spells like Amp and Energy Strike(some take even higher Int) these type of builds are often supported by Rare items and require good knowledge of the game to play successfully. |}

Entering the Helbreath World
|Welcome aboard! So whats on my screen?|
(1) The Mini Map:- This helps you to get around.
When you enter the game you will arrive at the beginner map, here you can get used to the game controls and HUD(heads up display), complete your first quest and pick the town you would like to fight for the honour of.
If you are not sure what town to choose when you stand on 1 of the two town portals the activity of each town will be displayed.
- HINT: choosing the more populated town may not always be the best option in this fast paced PvP orientated style of game.
