Welcome Young Adventurer, to the world of Phobos. Prepare to enter a whole new world of excitement, adventure and surprises.

Help with basic game play.

Image

Number 1: Ahh the experience bar, this is how you can tell how far you are away from certain skills or level advances, it also shows what your skills are at the present time. At the top you will see a little bar with white filling a quarter of it that shows how far you are away from your next level.

Example of the Exp Bar.

Image

Number 2: Your spell helper.. well this part is fairly easy too explain. On the left hand side you will see numbers such as F1 and so on, right click it a box should pop up this how you choose your spells.

Each spell will tell you how much mana it needs too be summoned, this is on the right hand side of your health bar.. Just above Help Channel.


Image

Number 3 and 4. Well these basically explain their selves, these are chat channels so you cominicate with fellow Phobos players.

Number 5 and 6. Your Health bar and mana bar, these are explain there selves, if you get hurt the bar will go down if you use spells your bar will go down. If you want too recharge your bar just eat food.

Number7: This is your inventory too open the backpack just right click. Easy as that.

Number8: This is how you can change your graphics or the skin of Phobos.
The rest explains its self.

Thats pretty much most of it. Stay Tuned more will be added soon. Also a guide on hunting and much more.

This guide is plain to explain difference between Phobos and Tibia. Works for Tibiaheads only. Perhaps include a total noob guide?

Mana is your inner power. You use it to cast spells and such. The mana is reoresent as a blue bar.
For example: If a spell costs 35 mana, you need 35 mana in your mana bar to cast that spell.

Every time you advance in level your max mana is rised by 5. This makes you more powerful than before cause maybe you'll learn a new spell?

Hitpoints is your life. When you have 0 hitpoints (from now: hp) you are dead. So watch closely at it so you don't die! The max hp does also rise when you advance in level. To gain a full hp bar you can eat food. The hp is represent as a red bar.

The skill bar shows your talents. Wanna be a good axe wielder? Or maybe a swordsman? This shows you how far you have come.
Higher skill = higher damage.

The strength shows how strong you are. You can hit harder if you have a higher strength skill.

The dexterity increase your accuracy. (Don't know anythin about that skill =/)

The wisdom shows your magical skill.

Piercing shows how good you are with stabbing weapon. For example knife and dagger. Use a dagger/knife to increase this skill.

Slashing shows how good you are withs swords. Use a sword to increase this skill.

Hacking is the axe skill. Use an axe to increase this skill

Blunting is the club skill. Use a club to increase this skill.

Ranged is distance fighting. Bow, Crossbow/Arbalest and slingshot are examples of distance fighting. Use a distance weapon to increase this skill.

Defence is the defence skill. It show how good you are at blocking attacks. Increase this skill with a shield!

[A little guide to some of the things to non-tibia players =)]

The skills like blunting,slashing and peircing and so on dont have to be a specific weapon. Peircing dont have to be a dagger and hacking dont have to be an axe. (tibia have that)

All skills will later get a special attacking type.

You can hack with a sword, you can pierce (stab) with a sword, you can slash with a sword.
You can hack and slash with an axe.
You can hack and pierce with a spear.

It works like that :P Spear would bel ike.. 10% hack, 90% pierce (just an example, irrelevant to actual values)

Not really alot of calculating at all :P
In the end you just make it work like this:
For skill advance you need formula(skill lvl) points
A hit with a sword is x points in skill 1, y points in skill 2 and z points in skill 3

There's no PMing on the test. But that will come. To sit you just stand on a char and click on yourself :)
