Starting Vs Joining Games Edit
When you "Start" a game, you start a local server. Players may "Join" your server either through Steam or with an IP Address. Refer to the Multiplayer page for details on playing with friends. Playing online with friends is optional, but encouraged.
Game Flow Edit
After the starting cutscene, you take control of your character. The general flow of the game involves killing enemies, leveling up, and getting strong enough to advance through the game's major dungeons. As you level, you earn Stat Points and Skill Points. Allocating those effectively is key to strengthening your character. If you make a mistake, Reset Potions are available to re-allocate Skills+Stats.
Saving Progress Edit
Character progress (stats, skills, items, etc) is automatically saved as you play. Progress throughout the game is determined by the host of the game you're playing in.
