Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Attacking Enemies: To engage enemies in battle, left-click on them to target them. Move into attack range. You will know you are in attack range when one or more of the abilities on your action bar lights up. Then left-click an ability or press the hotkey associated with one of your abilities on the action bar. The action bar is located at the bottom of your screen.

Viewing Abilities: Any time you want to view your abilities, left-click on the Abilities button in the upper part of your screen to open your Abilities panel. To move an ability to your action bar, left-click the ability and drag it to a location on the action bar.

Looting: When you defeat an enemy, its defeated body will glow if it has loot. Right-click your enemy's defeated body to open its Loot window. Then, right-click on any items in the Loot window to add them to your inventory.

Experience Points: Experience Points (or XP) are acquired by defeating enemies and completing missions. When you have acquired enough XP, you will gain another level. Leveling up allows you to become more powerful, acquire more abilities and take on greater challenges. You must find a trainer to learn new abilities.
