Guide to getting started with 1.5.1

Post by GMInnocence » 17 Apr 2015, 03:42

Welcome to LMSPW. Here is a guide to help you get started playing on the 1.5.1 Descent server.

You will start out having to create your character. There are 5 classes and 10 different character
classes to choose from, there are lots of customization that can go into a character, so have lots of fun and be creative. Each class and character have strength and weaknesses. Read the descriptions carefully to find the one best suited for you. After picking your class, character and customizing your character, you have 3 days to go back and re-customize your character for free, after that you will need a Makeover Scroll.

They can be found in the boutique and or traded Perfect ~ Tokens of Luck for one at the LMSPW Boutique Agent. LMSPW Boutique Agent can be found in every major city. You can change your name if you buy a Identity Stone from the Boutique > Events > Shop. Then find the Keeper of Names in West Archosaur to change your name. Identity Stones can be bought with event gold. To get event gold you either need to donate or win of the many contests LMS runs.

So after creating your character and logging in for the first time, you end up in Astral World.
This is a beginners area that can you explore and play around in if you would like. There are some quests that can be completed here if you want to do them or you can come right to the main world if you want.
Just please remember when you leave this map you will not be allowed to re-enter at any time. Click the link if you want a guide to the quests in this area.

After leaving Astral World you will come to the main map. You will enter the map in the beginner areas of your home city.

Humans > Blademasters/Wizards > Etherblade
Untamed >Barbarians/Venomancers > City of Lost
Winged Elf > Clerics/Archers > Plume
Tideborn > Assassins/Psychics > City of Raging Tides
Earthguards > Seekers/Mystics > Tellus City

There you will be able to open your geographical map. Double click on it in your inventory and that will open up all teleport locations.
While that is opening up I would recommend looking at your Character Info (press C). This is where you put your stat points in and tells you all about you character.

Make sure when you are putting your stat points in that you put them in the proper places to where the gear and weapons you want. I recommend checking with the forges and looking at what u need to wear the next level of gears before putting any points in at all, but do not worry if you make a mistake it can be corrected even after pushing the done button. You will need to buy a reset scroll and visit the elder in any major city to reset your points. There are 2 levels of reset scrolls depending on what u want to do to reset them.

There is no spiritual cultivation to be done with your character. Everyone starts out with Celestial Sage. You can change this with the Celestial Schism that is in your inventory. You take it to the Conversion Executor in East Archosaur (by the Elder) and follow her instructions. You do start out with all your skills at level 10. You do have to buy your demon/sage skill books. If you have already learned your demon/sage skills and you want to change your cultivation that is fine but it will reset all your skills and you will have to buy all new books and learn them again. Your demon/sage book sellers in Thousand Streams near the elder. Magic skills on one side and melee skills (power) on the other.

You will have to take the books to a skill trainer in either Heaven (sage)

or Hell (demon).

Enter there at Thousand Streams.
There is also a event calendar that will tell you about the different events and instances. You can find this on the bottom of your mini map. Press the number 7 that is there and it will bring up a new box. There also is a Check In button. Clicking on that will give you some exp every day.

Also do not forget about you genies. You can get them from the Watcher of the Earth.

He is in every major city. Get them there and take your chance with lucky points or be guaranteed a perfect genie by buying a All Rounder genie from the boutique.

You start out fully geared with it all maxed refined and stoned. This is what you start making your higher level gears with.
There is also automatic pop up quests for gear.
level 107 with g14 set of 4 armors + g14 weapon rewards
level 113 with g15 set of 4 armors + g15 weapon rewards
level 120 with g16 set of 4 armors + g16 weapon rewards

Your crafting skills when you begin are at level 7. That will allow you to begin crafting your own weapons and gear. Just remember as your gear level increases you will need to increase your crafting skill also to make the next level.
The higher level crafting npc are located in West Archosaur.

You will have to start your apothecary from level 1 and level it to level 10. All materials can be bought from the Buy Here Pup

(located in all major cities) or you can buy a pick axe (buy from a merchant) and farm them yourself.

The forges in West Archosaur are there for you with lots of various goodies. Weapons, gears, tomes, and lots of other important goodies can be made in them. Please explore them!

These quests are the same for both servers except for the names of the mines. That's why we've decided to write just one guide for both servers.


Old Heavens Tear (OHT)

You can get into OHT by doing the quest line or by buying a key. You can only get into the first level of OHT with the quest line. After that you will need to buy keys to get in there. Great grinding spots in there for mats and levels.
