Important basic controls

Double clicking a monster automatically attacks them with your basic attack (no skills) Selecting a monster and pressing any of the hot keys in the skill bar will also attack them. Also pressing any of the skills in the skill bar with your mouse will perform an attack.

Holding Control (Ctrl) and double clicking a player will enable PK mode and attack the corresponding player. However, killing someone over 4 levels under you if you initiated the first attack will net a Rogue Point.  This is explained in more detail later in the guide.

You can use the mouse to move, or you can use the WASD keys to move. The arrow keys (quickly) turns the camera. can also be done with the mouse by right clicking and holding and moving in the direction you want.

Double clicking with the (left) mouse button will allow you to move to the targeted spot. This is especially helpful if you use the mouse to move and you’re traveling through a highly monster-infested area. This way, you don’t accidentally attack a monster.

Dragging a Stone to unequipped equipment will attempt to socket the respective Stone into the item. You will lose the Stone if it fails, but not the item.(done by holding down the left mouse button and moving the stone to the piece)

The Auction House:

The best way to get good equipment, and to sell equipment you don’t need, this is also a great way to acquire rare/unique/elite equipment.

It is best to check the Auction House to see the average price of equipment or items sell for, If you want to try and sell something quickly, sell it for less than the lowest price.Not everything can be listed in the Auction House.

The Auction House charges a % of the total amount entered this is not refundable unless the item is canceled before purchase.

To sell an item in the Auction House open your Inventory and click the ‘Sell’ button located underneath your Gold. This will open your sales window where you can drag items you wish to sell onto available slots. A sale price must be entered into the pop up box to complete the listing.

To buy from or browse the Auction House you must visit the ( Item Trader NPC ) who can be found in many of the villages or towns.
