Starting Guide for New Players


#1

This is a Guide for new players who are coming to the server and are not sure what to do. This guide will be complete with a list of useful commands and helpful information for leveling and gearing your character.

Here on L1.5 we have many useful currencies (Forms of in-game money) that can be used to purchase things on the server The main currencies in the game are as followed.

Adena: This is your main currency. You can use it to buy consumables and other items from shops/venders and items from other players.

Gift Coins(GC): Gift Coins can be obtained by donating to the server and by purchasing them from other players. This currency is used to buy very strong and expensive items from other players and are also for the Gift Master Shop -giftmaster. You can also use the calculator to see how many Gift Coins you get per donation here: http://www.l15server.com/donate/calculator.html

Ancient Adena(AA). Ancient Adena is obtained by voting for L1.5 by clicking the banners on the left side of the main page of our website (you must be logged into the website to vote). This currency is used to purchase stuff in the game using commands. (There is a command list below).

Ok, Great. Now that we have all of this info on currency lets get into making our characters and starting out.

The first thing you will want to do after creating your account is go to the main page of the website and vote using the banners. By Voting you will receive AA (Ancient Adena) This is very helpful for using certain commands in the game such as -brave to make your character run on brave.

When you login and start off in the game depending on your class you will either start in Hidden Valley or Singing Island at this point you will want to type the commands “-buffs, -brave” to buff your character up and then you will want to type -betanoob (This will take you to a newbie area where you are able to hit training dummies until level 31). Once you have reached level 31 it is advised to stay and hunt around betanoob until you have leveled up a bit more. (You can stay at betanoob until level 60 if you choose to do so)

When you have reached roughly level 51 you will want to start hunting in harder areas that are good for leveling your character. Good places to hunt at this level are places such as Blazing Swamp or Island Of Prayers or Pirate Island.
To get to Blazing Swamp you can purchase a “Glowing Coal from Blazing Swamp” from the shop in -warp 2 (Silver Knight Town). For the Island of Prayers you would simply type -warp 8 to teleport there and for Pirate Island you would type -warp 10
Note: Blazing Swamp is only huntable until level 61.

Now That you have a idea of where to hunt on your character lets talk gear.
Here on L1.5 we have a grade system for gears/items which require certain levels to use certain items. Gear Grades are as followed.

C-Grade Level 40

B-Grade Level 51

A-Grade Level 61

S-Grade Level 76

S80 Level 80

X-Grade Level 100

When you start out on the server you are given a gear set automatically to start out with. This is a very decent and helpful gear set for the lower level areas. However when you reach level 51 you are now able to wear a new “grade” of armors for example: “Blue Wolf Set” This item set can be obtained by hunting in the Ant Caves located in the Desert and also by hunting Blazing Swamps or often other players will have extras and be nice and even give it away. There are many other items sets for many other levels and grades however it would take all day to post it so instead I am going to link to the old guide which has more descriptive information on other items and grades.
Please note that the link to the other guide is outdated and some information there is incorrect although the item guide is still correct. http://www.l15server.com/guides/items.html

Ok, Now we are getting into stats. I would post information about stats here but another player has already been good enough to make a great post on it so instead I will simply link it here. 31 All Stats Video

Now lets talk Player Commands. Below is a list of player commands that you will often use in the game which will be very helpful for your adventures here on L1.5

chat. WARNING: You will lose experience with this command. If you are

blood in your inventory. This is used for certain blood pledge quests,
and can also be consumed to temporarily morph into a faster version of
your class.

-giftmaster: This will pop up a window for the giftmaster shop where you can purchase items with Gift Coins (GC)

-cdk (50 AA):
This command gives you the CDK polymorph for 7,100 seconds. It’s expensive, but provides a very fast morph for hunting.

Now that we know all about starting off and commands and have the basics down lets get into the L1.5 Tier system.

On L1.5 we have what is called a “Character Tier System” what this means is you can continuously level your character and become much stronger with higher stats and damage rates. How this works is when you start your adventure here on L1.5 you start off as a level 1 character. You can level all the way to level 100 however its recommended to level to 115 for the extra stat points and use whats called a “Charged Blade” which can be crafted using a “Weakened Spirit Blade and 100 of each of the 4 types of Soul Shards (Sad, Pure, Angry and Lost)” from Ivory Tower floors 4 - 8 to become a special character class called a Reaper.

The Reaper Class has the ability to learn all mage spells and even has its own special abilities. You will then level your character back to level 100 again. Once you have reached level 100 Reaper you are able to use what called a Pandora’s Box to now start off as a 1 Tier 2 character with a 50% permanant damage boost. You can craft the Pandora’s Box by using 3 keys (Key to the Wasteland, Key to the Forest and Key to the Island that you need to hunt or purchase from other players. You can obtain these keys by going to Forgotten Island for the Key to the Island, -warp 6 and hunting Orcs for the Key to the Forest and lastly around the Chaotic Temple in Gludio for Key to the Wasteland

Every time you become a Reaper or Tier up you will get Elixer Tokens which can be used to purchase special Elixers from a vendor in -warp 2. More Information about the Tier system and Elixers ect. can be found in the above link previously posted here about stats and also at the following link. http://www.l15server.com/guides/game.html

I think I am done for now.
If people have real questions and still need help learning the ropes you are welcome to whisper me in the game for assistance Turtle.

Loved the guide. Adding a few things here that I had to search for.

Pandora came up with some ideas to help jazz things up and bring in new customization options for your characters! With all these existing character slots what could we possibly add to the list? Pandora made it clear, MORE JEWELRY!!! To be specific, Brooches! These brooches each have sockets for jewels, so you can customize your brooch to suit your needs and hunting ground choice! The mini game and brooch/jewel system is being released, October 9th, and when released you guys can play the new mini game and start winning jewels to equip and collect as well!

What is a Brooch?

Brooches are a new equipment slot that is socket-able. Sockets are not binding and can be added and removed just like other pieces of equipment allowing you to swap out your jewels on the go. Upon release there are 3 new brooches able to be obtained. Ancient Brooch (2 slots) which can be purchased for adena from Pandora. Shiny Brooch (3 slots) which you will be able to obtain from the clan store or gift master for gift coins. Lastly the very rare Autumn Brooch (5 slots) which can be won from Pandora’s Jewelry Box mini game.

What is a Jewel?
There are a total of 9 different jewel types that can be equipped in a brooch (or slotted item) Each jewel has 5 different levels. You can only equip one jewel of each type at a time. Of course you are also limited to the number of slots in your brooch (or other slotted items) as to how many jewels you can equip. Jewels are non trade-able, however at level 5 you can seal them and exchange the sealed jewel.

How to get Jewels
You can obtain jewels from Pandora’s Jewelry Chest mini game that is on the website (here34) . Playing this mini game lets you win different prizes many of which are jewels. There are also jewel boxes that are trade-able/sellable.
