UI Guide

Character Information

Your character's HP, MP, Awakening Orbs, and other information is displayed in the top-left corner of your screen. Certain characters may display additional information depending on their Character System. If you currently have a Pet summoned, its hunger and MP will be displayed underneath your character's portrait.

Channel/Location

The channel you are currently in, as well as your location within the game, will be displayed in the top-right of your screen. By clicking on the arrow next to your current channel, you can quickly select another channel to switch to, without exiting back to the menu (Can only be used in towns).

Buffs and Debuffs

Your current Buffs and Debuffs are displayed just underneath your Channel/Location info. Small icons will appear to indicate the buffs and/or debuffs your character currently has, as well as an accompanying timer in most cases, to signify how much longer the effect will last. Server-wide buffs that affect every player, are listed in the top-center of the screen, usually for bonus EXP or Drop events, or when Unlimited Stamina is in effect.

Active Quests

Upto six of your currently active Quests will be displayed here, in order to easily track your progress. Upon completion of a quest, you are given the option to QuickClear.png a quest with a single click while in a town or field. Clicking on a quest will bring up the full information of it in the quest menu. To hide your active quests from your UI, you can disable it from the quest menu, or by pressing the [TAB] key.

Minimap

The minimap indicates nearby NPCs and Party Members in towns. In dungeons, it will also display the number of remaining mobs in an area. You can click the 'M' button next to the minimap to view the Town/World map, or by pressing the [M] key. Pressing the key in a Dungeon will display the Dungeon map. Mail information and item durability warnings are displayed next to the minimap.

Skill/Item Slots

The Skill Slots are where you equip your skills to use in combat. By default you start off with 4 slots (A-Slot) unlocked. You can unlock 4 additional slots (B-Slot) by purchasing Skill Slot Change Medal from the Item Mall. Another slot can be unlocked by completing the Transcendence quest. The final slot can be unlocked after completion of the Transcendence quest, by purchasing Skill Slot Expansion (Transcendent) from the Item Mall.

Changing The Skill Layout

Type A
Type B
Prior to the UI Revamp, the Skill Slots were located underneath your character info. Following the revamp, it was relocated to the bottom of the screen by default, but allowed for you to switch back to the old layout. You can switch between skill slot layouts by accessing your options menu [O], and selecting the following option:

SkillLayout20161.png

Skill Slot UI: Type B

  • If you own a B-Slot, you will see a Space.png icon next the to skill bar.
  • Pressing the Spacebar switches between skill bars.
  • Type-B requires less keys to use skills, as the same 5 keys apply to both sides, making it ideal for controller users.
  • You can still switch skill bars back and forth while in Type-A mode, Type-B simply occupies slightly less screen space.

Quick Slots

Quick Slots are used to equip consumable items from your inventory, such as potions, food, drinks, Monster Cards, and other consumables. These items can only be used during gameplay if they are equipped to one of your quick slots, and will trigger the item's cooldown when swapping items in a field or dungeon. Equipping them in a town or resting area, skips the cooldown. By default, 3 quckslot slots are unlocked, the remaining 3 must be unlocked by purchasing the Extend Quick Slot item from the Item Mall.

Chat

Extreme Nasod Megaphone

Megaphone Chat

By using a Nasod Megaphone, you can broadcast a message that is visible to everyone in channel you are currently in. The Extreme Nasod Megaphone works the same way, but instead broadcasts your message across the entire server (All Channels). These messages will appear in the Megaphone Chat, along with the current channel the user sent it from shown next to their name. Megaphones are obtained from the Item Mall, Ariel, or Events.

Chat

Toggling chat message visibility.
The chat box displays chat messages, announcements, system messages, whispers, and exp/ED information. There are multiple chat tabs in which you can switch to, in order to view specific types of chat messages only. These include:
  • All: View all chat messages and notifications
  • Party: Show only party chat
  • Guild: Show only guild chat
  • Whisper: Show only whispers you have sent/received
  • Couple: Available after becoming a couple with another player, allows you to communicate privately between one another.

Customization

By right-clicking on any of the chat tabs, you can further customize what content you would prefer to be visible in each one, by toggling the options to your liking. The chat boxes can be resized vertically by hovering over the tops of them, and dragging them up or down to the preferred size. The chat boxes can also be freely moved around the screen, by clicking and dragging.

Selecting A Dungeon

DungeonSelect.png

By click the Dungeon button, you can select the region and dungeon in which you wish to play in, granted you have them unlocked. Dungeons that are grayed out, currently cannot be accessed until you unlock them by meeting the requirement(s), and complete all dungeons leading up to it in that region.

Starting A Dungeon

On the majority of dungeons, you have the option to either automatically queue up for a party, by pressing the larger Start Dungeon (F8) button, or immediately enter as-is with Start with current members. When queuing, you are required to meet the minimum Appropriate Item Level, as well as at least be in the level range for that dungeon in order to start. The latter option bypasses these requirements completely.

Indicators

Sometimes dungeons, and region tabs will be marked with specific icons.

  • Dungeons and Regions marked with a Q indicate that an active quest is available there.
  • Dungeons marked with a Flag icon indicates that Hero's Call is active, and will reward a Heroes Coin upon completion if Start Dungeon was selected.
  • Regions marked with Chains, indicate that the region's Secret Dungeon is currently open.
  • Secret Dungeons with a Padlock over them, indicate that they are closed. You can hover over them to see the next date in which they will be open.

Partying With Friends

Forming parties is very beneficial, as you can receive benefits such as increased drop rates, fever buffs, and the ability to clear dungeons faster due to playing as a team. There are a multitude of ways you can form parties, and to do so, you must either not be in a party, or be the leader of your own party (indicated by a star next to your name), and the other player(s) must not already be in a party themselves. To invite someone to your party, you may do any of the following methods.

1. Name Input

By right-clicking directly on your character, or on your portrait, you will be given an option to invite another player to your party. You will be given a text box, in which you can manually enter the name of the person you wish to add.

2. Community/Friend/Guild List Invite

You can easily add anyone to your party through use of the Community tabs. Community tabs can be accessed through the speech bubble icon in the menu area, or by using hotkeys. By default, you can press [0] to access the Community tab, [Y] to access your Friend's list, and [9] to access your Guild member list. From here you can right click on anyone's name and select to invite them to your party.

3. Direct Invite

By simply right-clicking on any players whilst in a town or field, you can select to invite them directly to your party.
