Frequently Asked Questions
<Fighters>
Q: How do I fight with other players ?
A: All you have to do to fight others is select the player from the dropdown menu and select "OK" when "look for another player" is highlighted. If you find that player (If they are in town, you will always find them. If they are roaming, you may spend a HP trying to find them and fail) and they are another fighting class you can select the "fight" option and you fight them. It will tell you the result of the fight including how much damage was done, and special abilities that worked, any items that were stolen/broken/upgraded and any gold award you may have gotten. Then it will take you to a screen to leave a message. You should leave messages as it's polite and friendly. You can do this for any other player as long as your attack isn't higher then theirs (after the defender bonus of +1 attack, you cant have a gap wider then 4 attack below yours to fight). Once you fight someone, you canft fight them again for a while, usually about a day, but sometimes as little as an hour or so.

A: At first, fighting players can't avoid fighting. As far as you're a fighting player, you have to fight, fight, and continue to fight! However, if you don't want to be attacked anyway, you can use hiding tools like "Firecracker" or "Fire Flowers." ":::Decoy:::" may be useful, too. If there're no hiding tools or decoys in market, you can "Save outside the town" when you save. However, opponents may find you in that case and you heal very slowly.

Q: I was cursed! Why, and what should I do?
A: First of all, you'd better put on a Saint equipment when you attack non-bounty players. That will solve your problem fundamentally.

You can sell anything you compose, so whatever it becomes, it can be profitable. By the way, you can make Power Water with two Cold Water compostion. If you want to know connection between bean's color and its composed item, you should estimate a Secret Memo. A hint for composition is written in it.

Frequently Asked Questions
<Experts>
Q: I got a Cloarkroom ticket, but I couldn't use it. Why?
A: There are some kinds of Cloarkroom tickets, and you can use only once for each. And the sequence of tickets is determined. You should use plain "Cloakroom Ticket" at first, and you can use "Fine Cloakroom Ticket" next time. You can't use "Fine Cloakroom Ticket" before using "Cloakroom Ticket."
Q: What is the difference between Broken items and Damaged items?
A: The pawn judges Damaged items sellable and civilians who have Recycle skill can make Mithril Piece from them, but Broken items are not sellable. So the pawn just resales them to ragmen and they disappear from the game.
Q: Why doesn't the pawn buy items from me?
A: There are two cases that the pawn doesn't buy items from you. (a) You're regarded as a rude person at [9015] Popularity Poll. (b) The system detected your lavish expenditure. To avoid this problem, you should be a good person, and don't buy needless items.
Q: My brave points decreased suddenly. Why ?
A: If you want to keep your brave points, there're two things you shouldn't do. 1) Saving outside the town. 2) Saving without reviving when you're killed by someone. However, using hiding items like thick glasses, sunglasses, or a glass mask won't decrease your brave points.

A: Just keep it. If you collect some of them, something will occur.
