[Esgrima 2] Official Unofficial FAQ
Well I decided to have a forum post for some frequently-asked questions, and if I missed any you have you may ask here as well.
Protip: To find a certain question/subject, try CTRL+F
Q: Is this game fun/any good?
A: Short and simple, it's subjective and depends on your taste in games.
Q: What's the best class?
A: Well fire mages are great farmers with their AoEs but bad for bosses, so not recommended. Clerics are highly in need, but usually require a full party or a meatshield to accomplish anything. Warriors are great all-rounders, and in my opinion the best starter class. Decent dps, great tank capabilities, skills, and buffs. Musket has a really fast initial beginning, but later on becomes really difficult and almost useless to play until level 50, when it gets a cooldown reset buff that is vital in certain boss battles. However, it uses nearly identical gear (other than rapier) to the best class in the game, officer, which you need to unlock. So if you plan on having an officer, creating a musket to get the coat/pistols/hats would be a wise choice as a swap.
Q: How do I get to the new island?
A: Well first you need to have unlocked empire espada outpost by completing all of valeria's nefcok and guard quests, as well as all the frostreach soldier's quests. Then to unlock the foreign soldier's quests, you need to have completed Montero's chateau quest and any of his quests before it. Once you have all these quests done, accept the quest from the foreign soldier and complete them. This will unlock Narumachi, the new town in the new continent. To actually unlock the levels, you need to accept Elder Fukomoto's quest for the Narumachi map, which you can get from Maki for 2.5m denars. Once you complete his quest, the land is officially open to you.
Q: How do I unlock officer?
A: Well first you need to unlock empire espada outpost as I said before, by completing all the nefcok/guard/soldier quests, then reach level 50 to accept the Empire Officer's quests, and complete them in order.
Q: How do I unlock samurai (A.K.A archer)?
A: Well first you need to have completed Omurai's challenge in Narumachi, by fighting him and surviving 6 turns. Then, you need to continue leveling up to get more quests from the Samurai himself, and complete them in order. Grimzar is the daily boss you can fight for 3m denars from the Conquistador in Valeria.
Q: How do I unlock berserker?
A: Well you need to acquire 1.3k reputation, which you can get by doing certain quests and leveling up.
Q: How do I unlock Guardian?
A: Fight your way through each level to port ville, then accept and finish each of the guardian's quests. The guardian master talisman drops at dark deep sea ocean.
Q: What is mining?
A: For starters, mining spots (or known as M#) are usually unlocked by defeating an optional boss that branches off from the main route (with the exception of suelo congelado). For mining itself, in a nutshell it's when you get your character in a mine, press the "mine" button, and wait for a rare rock. Some mines require mining levels, a passive which is a must to get, though it's common to have one main character then another for mining. Mining normal blue rocks will give you common materials, mining rare red rocks will give you a CHANCE of getting rare mine materials, both commons and rares are needed to craft items through recipes, which drop at bosses. And sometimes players like to call out which mine and which channel has a rare, someone calling "M3C2" in chat is stating there is a rare rock in Snowfield mines, channel 2. Jungle Mines are known as M1, Underwater Cave mines as M2, and Snowfield mines as M3. You can switch channels by clicking settings, channel, and click "join" by the channel you want to enter.
Q: What are recs/recipes, and where do they drop?
A:Recipes are items that require certain boss drops and mining commons/rares, different bosses drop different items/recipes, for a full list go here.
Q: What's enchanting?*
A: Enchanting is a process where you get an item, a proper gem that can can enchant it, and sometimes a booster to increase your chances of a successful enchant. Gems drop from certain bosses (refer to the boss guide), and boosters can be bought in the gold mall, drop from the Khaz'ar Dungeon, or are obtainable through quests.
Q: What are skill manuals and what do they do?
A: Skill manuals increase a skill’s level by 1, so a level 5 skill would go from 5 to 6. Usually by skillpoints, you can only increase a skill one level (for elements and certain passives/actives), but for most it’s 5. Skill manuals let you go beyond 5 and raise it to 6. basically it just makes the skill more powerful, i.e. with skill manual a level 5 findero goes from 25% to a level 6 with 40%. 15% more.
Q: Can you sell items?
A: There are various types of ways to get/give items in the economy within this game, the least common way is you can sell items in the gold mall or to NPC's, and the amount you'll get off the item is half of its listed sell price. For player interaction, you can right click and trade, where there is a denar, gold, and items slot. Those are for direct trading, and prices, value, and worth depend between each player, so rather than have a set price both players will have to come to a consensus on the item(')s(') value. Though there are some staples for prices that most players agree upon, so try finding those.
Q: How do I join a guild?/What are guilds for?
A: First off, guilds are invite only, and only the Leader, Officers, or members can invite others to a guild. You can probably ask around and find an officer/member/leader and ask them if they'd take you, but some guilds have standards, so finding one that'll accept you at level 1 as soon as you start playing is unlikely, so improve a bit before entering a guild, level 40 with full elites is recommended. Guilds are sort of just meant to group players together, rather than be scattered throughout the game. Guilds tend to "run" certain Strongholds such as War Factory or Shogun Castle. Also, by warring, guilds gain guild exp, and with enough guild exp guild's can level up, giving each member a permanent buff in battle. The higher the guild level, the better the buff.
Q: How/where do I get warrior ring?
A: For the quest "Ring of Romance," you need to craft the warrior ring, a level 10 elite ring. You can get the recipe from one of the blacksmith's quests, and get the materials from mining/selva temple. Be warned though, when turning in the quest the ring will be taken, so it's advised immediately before you turn in the quest to equip it so it isn't taken, the quest isn't even worth the effort if it's taken anyways.
Q: What's a warrior stone for?
A: Warrior stones are a rare (initially) drop from certain humanoid enemies, or any enemies bearing a warrior/human-like resemblance (including monkies). You can trade them to the collector in port ville for certain materials needed to craft certain recipes, such as metal for pistols and books, hilts for sabers/lances/rapiers, etc.
