    Chapter 1: Before you start playing

    This is an attempt to make a universal English manual for the game to reduce frustration for my English-speaking fellas.

    Before we start, please keep this in mind:
    • This is not a generic useless and unnecessary readme kind of crap. You will have a lot better gaming experience if you go through this manual. This game has lots of hidden things that are in no way explained for you anywhere else.
    • It's an old game. I make an assumption you played the singleplayer version. Be forgiving. People had to bloody disassemble this old pile of code and make it work well. That's a whole bunch of low-level work that has to be respected. @ZZYZX, thanks ma dude.
    • This server doesn't charge you for the game and doesn't employ annoying and disrespectful microtransaction tactics. Consider going to Auction and paying a few bucks to the owners in exchange for potions. That's a good choice. Thanks for the server, @Anotomix
    Okay, we start from client downloading and configuration. Take a look at the vid here where I explain how to do things here. It is useful. It takes care of the issues you'll encounter and improves your gaming experience:
    http://forum.allods2.eu/index.php?t...e-the-client-start-playing-rom-2-online.3930/

    Now, BEFORE you start playing. Take your time and read the manual here: http://allods2.eu/en/tutorial/startgame/fno/

    Seriously, my folks, don't be lazy fucks. Read it. It's useful. Do it NOW!

    So now you have to know something. Yes, it's significantly easier to play as a mage, especially on PVP since you will be killed there multiple times with no reason whatsoever and unlike PVE, you lose all your items when you die on PVP.

    Mages don't really need fancy items to fight given that they're extremely careful. Mages are fragile, but they don't need to maintain close combat and they never miss. In the late game, however, they become practically useless. You will mostly play a warrior character since they're instrumental in hard and insane quest maps.

    Also early game as a mage is very annoying. you die pretty much every time. Personally I think it's a mistake to start as a mage.

    However! it's possible and a lot more interesting (imho) to play as pure Warriors with no mages help, at least in the beginning. A lot more fun.

    Because warriors are essential and mages aren't, this manual is about playing as a warrior. I'll start including mages later on in the tutorial, but as a supplement.

    Chapter 2: First Steps

    Now, you read all this, watched the vid and started playing (don't forget about the stats, it has to be 34 for all stats. Don't make a mistake of uneven stats!)

    An important fact: [!] when you die, think twice before pressing space. In some cases you want to close the game, wait for five minutes and log in again. That way, you will not lose any XP. Loosing 10% XP when you have tens of millions of it is just too painful. In these five minutes, you can take time and look around the site, read the forum, make another character and play with it, etc.

    The next step is making money and gearing up. What you need to know about in-game stores:

    1. Stores content generally (not always) depends on map type and shop location.
    2. The harder a map is, the better and more expensive items are sold in the store. Except quests.
    3. Stores located on quest maps almost always only sell scrolls and non-essential potions.
    4. Some maps quite often have stores surrounded with monsters. You can either run into it, trying to not get killed or carefully kill the guards and enter. Top items are normally sold in stores like that on Nightmare maps
    5. Quest items (that drop from special mobs on quest maps) will surpass anything that is sold in stores.
    Now, with this in mind, typically you will get mostly up to Steel level of items in Easy level stores. Sometimes you can stumble upon Mithrill and even some Adamantium on the special Evil Islands Easy map. Evil Islands is an exception in many respectives. It's a quest, although it's not labeled as such. It has adamantium in stores, although Easy is not supposed to have it. Etc.
    Middle level stores will almost always offer various mithrill items and often Adamantium.
    Hard level stores - Adamantium and Meteorite gear.
    Nightmare - add Crystalline to that.

    Chapter 3: Intro into Questing: Easy & Middle Questing

    Okay, now the expectation is that you get at least to the mithrill gear. Once you do that, this is the next video that you wanna watch:
    http://forum.allods2.eu/index.php?threads/empire-border-get-ready-for-the-first-quest.3939/

    Now you go and do something like that. Gear up to Adamantine or around that. Next you'll get your first quest set. Exactly how to do it is shown here:
    http://forum.allods2.eu/index.php?threads/evil-islands-getting-your-first-full-set-of-items.3941/

    Now once you get it, the recommendation is to use it and go have fun on the middle/hard level of maps (not quests). Feel the power of this set, enjoy it and use it to develop your skills since this set gives a sizable bonus to XP. Buy/get a nice meteoric crossbow somewhere on Hard. Make sure it has some additional magic damage in it. The more - the better.

    Ok, so this gear was just to get first real money about 10 mil should be ample, but feel free to exceed it. As long as you're having tons of fun :). Also make sure to use this set to improve all your skills at least to 60 each.

    Now we need to start clearing Mid Quests. There are four we're interested in: Interception, Tracer, Dream and Fantasy. I recommend this order. We will use items from each quest to make the following quest easier. Here are the videos for each:

    1. Interception Quest
    2. Trancer Quest
    3. Dream Quest
    4. Fantasy Quest
    You're done with this? Enjoy your first Real Quest set! Well, at least this is what we'll use for Hard Quests :)

    Next steps for you now is to get your stats (strngth, agility, wisdom and mind) to the maximum. Go do these quests again and again, concentrating on potions. Or just get them from other players who may want to share. Another option is, obviously, purchasing them from the auction house either for gold or for a few USD cents.

    Ok, Now that you're done with it, you may think you're cool enough to go to Nightmare? No. Don't f*ck with Nightmare with no explicit reason. It's generally not for casual playing. Nightmare is actually trying to actively kill you, unlike any other difficulty.

    If you haven't noticed yet, every level of difficulty has its own levels of monsters. Easy is lvl 1 and 2. Mid is lvl 2 and 3. Hard is lvl 3 and 4. Nightmare is 4 and 5. Some Nightmare quests will feature what's called lvl 6 mobs.

    What you need to know about the level 5 (6) mobs is that their function is to be hard regardless of how powerful the player is. Nobody would feel comfortable just going through a map killing lvl 5 mobs. It's not done like that. You have to be extra smart fighting them, you have to typically avoid 99% of their attacks. fighting against lvl 5 mobs requires explicit, strict strategy.

    Chapter 3: Advanced Questing: Hard Quests

    We're not yet strong enough to go do Nightmare. First we need to get the Body +3 full Crystalline set (ye, logically one would expect there to be a quest set for each kind of material but no, not quite).

    From here, actually, you have a few options. You could really go to Nightmare-level guarded stores (given that you know how to pass the guards or you're being helped) and buy body +3 shop items. While they will give you a good level of HP, they will still be not as good as Body +3 set items and that difference is significant. Although it's not really necessary to do it, we will do some of it. What you'll find really helpful is crystalline weapon with damage instead of stone curse.

    Also there are some new advanced techniques you should start practicing or just pay attention to.

    That's it for now. This manual is in the process of being created. My aim was to show my English-speaking fellas how good this game really is and I think that by now I showed about a half of its glory. More vids are coming. Hope it was helpful :)
