Training Tips[edit | edit source]

Have a piece of advice for effective training? Edit this section and place it here!

  • To level up your swordsman, you can hit a training dummy with a proper weapon from the class unlocks. Level up this way until you reach lvl 30. Use training weapons and repair them with equipment maintain. Position yourself to deal the most damage to the dummy. More damage means more xp.
  • After 30, you can level up more effectively by getting hit wearing the regular scale armor parts. Ask for a friend to hit you with punches trying to position the hits in a way that you take the less damage possible (i.e. 0.10 damage). It makes no difference in xp for the amount of damage you take. So the less you take, the longer you'll last (even up to 1h+ for using with power hour).
  • You can also use shields to level up past 30 but getting hit wearing armor is more efficient since armor breaks slower than shields.
  • Training dummies last forever but gives less xp than fighting a real person.
