Experience Points are gained through defeating enemies and completing Story Quests/Missions. Stay at an inn in town or use a Fountain of Healing in a dungeon to level up your character once you have enough experience.
When your character levels up, your basic status will change and you will receive a set amount of skill points.
Each Soul Rank has a Level Cap. You won’t be able to receive any more experience points until you raise your Soul Rank. The level cap for the first Soul Rank is level 7. To remove the first level cap, you must reach Soul Rank 2.

To open the Friends List, either press L on your keyboard on select Friends from the Main Menu. A pop up will display that shows two tabs: (Friends and Acquantances)
The Friends tab will display all players who you have invited or have accepted a friend request from. The Acquaintances tab shows some of your most recent group mates. Once the limit has been reached, older acquaintances will be removed.
To add someone to your Friends List, target him or her. Then, press N on your keyboard to open the Command window and click on the Send Friend Request to Targeted Player button.
If you’re not already in a Party, you can select Party from the Main Menu. Choose Create Party to open the party creation window and set up the party structure.
Target any player you wish to add to your party and choose Party Invite from the Contact menu.
The Party Leader may approve or deny any person that applies to join the party. Approve or deny requests from the confirmation dialog shown on party join request. The Party Leader may also kick players from the party or dissolve the party. This can be done by opening the Main Menu and selecting the appropriate item.
To join an already formed party, target a member of an open party, open the Contact Menu, and select Join Party. Your request will be sent to the Party Leader for approval.
There are two ways to distribute items when in parties:
When a party member picks up an item eligible for drawing from a monster’s body, the item will be added to the Draw Box. The draw box is a temporary storage place for items eligible for drawing. Items held in the draw box can be viewed by selecting Draw from the Party Menu in the Main Menu.
The Draw Box will automatically be displayed when you find a rare item. The Draw Box may also be opened from the assigned buttons in your inventory.
From the Draw Menu, choose the items you want to receive to participate in the draw. Draws winners are determined randomly based on member. The item is automatically added to the winner’s inventory. Note that if the winner does not have space in his or her inventory. You may choose Do Not Distribute to prevent random and draw distribution. In this case the person that finds them receives items.
Gold is automatically distributed to all party members when you defeat a monster while joined in a party. Members that stray too far away from the group will not be included in the distribution.
Players who have not joined a party and still want to group up can choose Party Search from the Main Menu. In the Party Search window, you can set your requirements for a party and search for open parties.
To join a party choose Request to Join Party from the Main Menu, set your party requirements, and announce to the world.
You may pick up the bodies of fallen players. Search a fallen player to check their inventory and get their body from there. Select Collect Body from the Inventory screen to pick up the body.
Bodies you pick up will be deposited at Quopaty Temple once you travel back to town. Players in Soul Form may then revive themselves at Quopaty Temple to return to their bodies.
Players may also pay a fee at Quopaty Temple to drastically increase their chances of revival. This makes Quopaty Temple a significantly safer place to recover.
If a dead player logs out, their body will be replaced with baggage inside of the dungeon. You won’t be able to pick up players in this state.
You need to allow other players to pick up your body. To do this, select Body Collection Permission under the Main Menu. If you do not allow collection, anyone who tries to collect your body will be automatically denied. Choose wisely who will collect your body. Not every person that picks up your body is a good person!
The Return to Soul Form command will be added to the Main Menu whenever someone picks up your body. If you sense danger, for example the person carrying your body is bringing you deeper into the dungeon; you can use this command to get out of being carried.
In Hero’s Square of Illfalo Port, talk to the Dungeon Guide NPC to open the Dungeon Selection window. Choose a dungeon and channel to enter the dungeon.
Note that you’ll need entry permits for each dungeon you wish to enter. You’ll receive entry permits for new dungeons when you complete certain Story Quests.
