Before setting off on your journey, you must first understand the basics of movement, combat, and quests. Using the W, S, A, and D keys, move your character forward, backward, left, and right, respectively. You may also adjust the camera by holding down the left mouse button, or turn your character with the right mouse button.
If you wish to modify the key bindings, you may do so within the Preferences interface of the game Menu.
From here you may adjust options to customize the game interface to your liking—see below for popular settings. The following option allows you to toggle relative user interface scale when changing resolutions.
Enabling the following options will…
Cause your character to face towards your target automatically when right-clicking on a target to enter combat.
Automatically move your character within range of your target when right-clicking to engage in combat.
Enable equipment tooltip comparisons.
To remap key functions, simply click next to a category and press the desired key.
Rampant throughout the area surrounding the Jieyi Shrine in Hebei, Wanhou Monkeys will serve as your first experience in combat. Approach one of the beasts, and position the mouse cursor over it.
Left-click on the target to display their portrait in the upper-left corner of the screen—this interface contains information regarding their Health and Lv.
Right-click on the target to enter combat mode—causing your character to automatically move within range of the target, and attack with the equipped weapon.
Upon defeating enemies, you will be awarded with a small amount of EXP. A gauge displayed along the bottom portion of the screen indicates how much EXP you have gained.
Once you have accumulated enough EXP, you can increase your Lv.—gaining access to new skills, weapons, armor, etc.
After having defeated an enemy, a container will appear on the ground where they fell.
To examine their remains, position your mouse cursor over the container, and right-click to open it. Many useful items can be acquired from defeating various creatures throughout the land.
You will encounter many people throughout your travels that are in need of assistance—these tasks come in the form of quests. An NPC that has a quest to offer has a distinct green scroll floating above them.
Though there are many different types of quests are available, all quests reward the player with EXP, and potentially items, currency, and reputation upon completion.
