I will show you a few tips and tricks you should know when you play this game the first time.
Tips and Tricks
Try all weapons
Since there are no classes you can try every weapon and use the one you like.
Try different skills early
Until you reach lvl. 20 you can reset your skillpoints for free! So go ahead and try different ways in your skilltree.
Never use your whole stamina
If you are in a fight or whatever and your stamina is 0 the regeneration is much slower and you can’t use any stamina until it’s completely full again. So beware and have at least 1 stamina left so you can use it faster.
Salvage gear and stuff you don’t need
It’s not all about loot here a huge aspect in this game is crafting so try to grab everything you can and salvage resources and gear lower than yours. Because there is a limit for your inventory space and it’s all about weight.
Use storage shed in citys
If you visit a city you can look for a storage shed to put some stuff in here and lose weight for your inventory.
Selling gear and other stuff
Do not sell gear when it’s lower than your gear because it’s not worth it. Salvage it so you can repair your gear instead with those resources. Rescources are more important at the beginning so you can’t go wrong with it.
You can almost place camps anywhere. Place them if you want to craft or to stay safe because it will be your respawn point if you die.
You can fast travel to some places (already explored ones like citys and so on) but you need “Azoth” for this. Azoth is some kind of ingame currency you can get it for beating big enemies or events. So don’t waste fast travel at the beginning. At least you can fast travel to your home for free but that got a cooldown so don’t waste it too.
There is a total of 3 factions you can choose from. If you really wants to play everything in this game with friends you should go into the same faction or you can’t play those big faction wars (PvP) together with your friends. Be aware that factions can only be changed after 120 days. PvE is always playable together.
