UI Guide

An overview of the user interface

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

Main Article: Status Effects

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 to signify how much longer the effect will last. Server-wide buffs/benefits that affect every player, are listed in the top-center of the screen.

Active Quests

Main Article: Quests

Up to 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.

Events

Events are temporary activities that you can participate in for various rewards and benefits. Information about ongoing events can usually be found by hovering over, or clicking on event icons at the top of your screen.

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. A repair option will appear here when your equipment durability is low, allowing you to repair it mid-dungeon, although repairing using this method costs significantly more than at a blacksmith.

Character

The Character screen is an overview of information about your character. Here you can manage your equipment and costumes, which can be equipped/unequipped by dragging and dropping, or right-clicking. You can also select other options to further strengthen, or customize your character, as well as view your levels, guild name, available K-Ching, and resurrection stones. Your character's stats and resistances are displayed in the lower portion of the screen

Other information and options available on the character screen are as follows.

Skill/Item Slots

Main Article: Skills

The Skill Slots are where you equip your skills to use in combat. 4 slots are available by default, and an additional 4 slots (B-Slot) can be unlocked by purchasing Skill Slot Change Medal from the Item Mall, or a 30-day one by completing a quest from Ariel. Transcendence unlocks an additional skill slot, and an additional slot (T-Slot) can be unlocked by purchasing Skill Slot Expansion (Transcendent) from the Item Mall. Upon unlocking your hyperactive skill, a hyperactive skill slot will be unlocked, which can only be occupied by your hyperactive skill.

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.

Customization

Your skill slots, quick slots, and special slots, can all be freely moved around on your screen. Their locations can be reset back to their defaults positions by resetting them in the options menu.

Megaphone Chat

By using a Nasod Megaphone, you can broadcast a message that is visible to everyone in channel you are currently in.

Megaphones are obtained from the Item Mall, Ariel, trading, or events.

You can lock the chat box in place by click the lock icon, or hide it completely by clicking the speech bubble icon next to it.

Begin Playing

Starting A Dungeon

Main Article: Dungeons

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.
