Intro \_______ What is Dransik? Depends on what you're talking about. Either Dransik is an executable file, used for gaming pleasure, or... Dransik is a vast world, filled with mystery, possibility, hardship, love, hate, and friendship. It's a world that's been torn asunder, and rebuilt many times. In this world, there is no set path that's been predetermined by fate. Your future, and the futures of your immediate surroundings, is up to YOU. Are you up to the task? \2. Legal Cr@pola \_______________ I've said it in many FAQs that I've made, and I'll say it again. This FAQ is property of Locke Cole, L0CKE_COLE, and/or L0CKE COLE (who are all the same person). You can use this FAQ for reading, printing, and giving to your friends, as well as inspiration to get off your @$$ and write a FAQ, but not to copy things off of, sell, or anything of that sort. Thank you for putting up with my cr@p. We now return you to the regularly scheduled FAQ. \3. About the Launcher \____________________ If you want to play Dransik, you must first get the launcher, which will keep the game updated every time you log on, by downloading patches and such. The launcher can be found at www.dransik.com, just click the "Download" link. Every time a new launcher comes out, be sure to download the update patch from the Dransik website. \3.1 Initialization \_________________ Okay, you have all of the files. Great. But to get started, you have to get the files "warmed up." Don't worry, you don't have to do anything. The launcher initializes, or readies the files for faster use. This may take a while, depending on how fast your computer is. \3.2 Login \________ After initializing all the files, login. Type your user name and password in if you have an account, or click the [Create New] button next to the login name box. \3.3 Updating \___________ If you've got a 56k, and you're wondering why it takes so goddamn long to log in, that's because the launcher is sending all of your file info to make sure that everything is up-to-date. If there are files that are behind the times, or not present, it will download what is needed. \3.4 Poll \_______ Once in a while, a poll will pop up in the launcher. Just pick an option and click [OK]. \3.5 Servers \__________ "Yaay! I'm ready to play!" NOT!!! Ok, ok... I was a little harsh. All you have to do is pick a server. There are three somewhat-permanent servers... Dransik New World: The standard beta server, located in Texas, USA. Great Wall: A server located in China. Krythan Inception: A server in California,USA. Pick a server to begin. Check out the Dransik website for more info. \4. About the Game \________________ After all those hours of tedious downloading, you finally get into the main EXE! \4.1 Updating \___________ ...but alas! More updates! If there was an update for this particular server, or if this is your first time visiting the server, you will have to download settings and such. Don't worry! Even on a 56k, these files take less than 2 minutes. \4.2 Characters \_____________ If you need an explanation for what a character is, hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE twice, and go outside. \4.2-a Creating a Character \_________________________ To have a character, you must create one. \4.2-a1 Races \___________ There are no differences between what race you are, besides your appearance, but the races are Human, Night Elf, and Orc, all with a male/female gender option. \4.2-a2 Professions \_________________ Warrior - Gives you experience in small blades. Blacksmith - Gives you a pick and a hammer, and experience in mining and blacksmithing. Farmer - Gives you a Shovel and Pecans, and some experience in Planting. Cook - Gives you a materials for mixing and cooking, and gives you experience in Bread Mixing and Cooking. \4.2-a3 Attributes \________________ You get 5 points in each attribute, and 5 extra to put anywhere. Strength: Affects attack damage, your weight limit, and your HP increases by 2 each time you boost it with an orb. Dexterity: Affects hit rate and evasion, how often you cut through a person, and armor goes up by 1 for every 4 dexterity points. Intellect: Need 30 points to tame wolves, and will have something to do with magic. Constitution: Affects how fast you regenerate, and boosts HP by 5 for every time you boost it with an orb. \4.2-b Using a Previous Character \_______________________________ It's as simple as double-clicking the character that you wish to use: you double-click the character you wish to use. \4.3 About the Game \________________ Unless you couldn't log on, you should be playing now. You start in the Town of Silvest, on Silvest Island. Silvest is commonly referred to (by players) as "n00b island", and for a good reason. Silvest is where you learn the basics in whatever you may want to learn. Whether it is dagger combat, mining, or whatever, that's up to you. On Silvest, you cannot attack other players. If you try to, the targeting system shuts off before you can launch your first attack. Wait until you get to Krythan, you impatient Pkers! :P \4.3-a HUD Explanation \__________________ The HUD contains the chat box and your current status. No, not your status 10 minutes ago, or your friend's status; yours! \4.3-a1 Health \___________ Health, the red bar with red numbers, is used to tell how injured you are. When you get hit, your Health, or HP, drops. If it drops to 0, you die, and are sent to the nearest Spawn Gate, with about 2/3 of your Health restored. If you die on Krythan, you will drop items, and sometimes equipment. In this case, get to your body as fast as possible (it decays) and get all of your stuff, before it drops your stuff off your body or someone loots (steals) your stuff. \4.3-a2 Stamina \____________ Stamina is the purple bar with purple numbers. It's used to tell how much immediate strength you have left to walk, attack, cast magic, etc. It drops as you walk/attack/whatever. When it starts glowing, you slow down and attack slower than usual. To restore it, stand still, not attacking, moving, or even breathing (that last one was fake, he he) until it reaches a satisfactory level for you. **NOT MUCH TO DO DEPT.*** I have found out that you still lose stamina when you try to move, but are blocked by a tree/wall/NPC. \4.3-a3 Hunger \___________ Hunger, the blue bar and numbers, tells how hungry you are. It drops in time, and to restore it, eat food. If it drops to 0, you start losing HP and you don't regenerate it. \4.3-a4 Alignment \______________ The circle's location on this bar tells what your alignment is; good, or evil. Green is good, yellow is neutral, and red is evil. If you see someone with a white name, then that person is holy; pure good. These are the last people you'd expect to PK, scam, or anything of the sort. You raise alignment by: Hunting ONLY hostile NPCs Not turning criminal To drop AP: Kill players (playerkilling, or Pking) Kill every NPC that comes your way \4.3-a5 Experience \_______________ Experience points are what determines your level. You get experience by hitting things (experience per hit = the amount of damage dealt), planting and harvesting crops, cooking, or basically everything in Dransik except for walking, or sitting there and doing nothing. Your level is displayed in the top box, to the right of the experience bar. Experience Points needed for: Level 1 - 0 Level 2 - 2,000 Level 3 - 4,000 Level 4 - 6,000 Level 5 - 8,000 Level 6 - 10,000 Level 7 - 15,000 Level 8 - 20,000 Level 9 - 25,000 Level 10 - 30,000 There are more levels than that, I'm just not gonna list 'em all. :P \4.3-a6 Weight \___________ Weight is, well, the total weight of all of your items. The more items you have, or the heavier they are, the higher your weight goes. Once your weight bar starts flashing, sell/drop/bank whatever you don't need. If you reach or exceed your weight limit, you REALLY slow down. Get to a wacky weight level, and you won't be able to move at all. \4.3-a7 Equipment \______________ Clicking the button with the person in it brings up equipment and status. To equip something, drag it to the empty slot of your choice (as long as you put leggings on your legs and mails on your body), or just simply double-click the item to equip. (NOTE: Just because a price is higher doesn't necessarily mean that it's better. IMO, I prefer a Stiletto to a Sabre, mainly because the Stiletto's faster, and does about the same damage as a Long Sword) \4.3-a8 Backpack \_____________ Click the backpack button to bring up your backpack, which is where you put all of your battle/looting/scamming spoils and merchandise. Need I explain more? No? Good. \4.3-a9 Skills \___________ Click the picture of the hand to bring up the skills console, showing all the skills you possess, what level they all are, and how much experience you need to level up those skills. When you finish a quest, you get experience in your experience pool. The experience in the E. Pool is displayed in the bottom box to the right of the experience bar. You can add any experience in your E. Pool to a skill to aid in leveling up that particular skill. (NOTE: To level up a skill, the experience MUST go over the amount needed. So to level up a skill that has 100 exp, and requires 250 exp, then add 151, to get 251 exp, the amount actually needed to level up a skill.) \4.3-a10 Enchant/Cast (Magic and Mystery Only) \_____________________________________ Until magic is done with beta testing, this button (the picture of the wand) is only enabled on the Magic and Mystery server. Click this, then the button that appears in the box to enchant a magic weapon (like a Mage Staff). Insert runes into empty slots or on already inserted runes to use them. Click the rune(s) of your choice that you need to cast a spell, then click a target to prepare and cast the spell at the target. \4.3-a11 Map \________ Click the picture of the globe to bring up the minimap. \4.3-a12 Chat \_________ Click the picture of the lips, or press [T] to open the chat box. See "Talking to Other Players" for more information. \4.3-a13 Taming Console \___________________ To tame a wolf, you MUST have 30 INT or more. Go up to the wolf, double click it, and you got yourself a k00 pet! This console is used to control any animals you've tamed. Click on the animal of choice, and select a command. \4.3-a14 Shield \_____________ Brings up the guild console. I have no idea what this looks like. Once I get into a guild, I'll update. \4.3-a15 Ship (Disabled) \______________________ The second-to-last button is disabled, because there are no ships in the game yet. \4.3-a16 Options \______________ Brings up the game options. Music - Turn ingame music on/off. Music Volume - Ugh, if I've GOT to explain this, turn off the computer and go play outside. Control-Click to Identify - Toggles between how you identify things, by double-clicking, or by holding CTRL and then clicking. Enable Chat Logging - Records the chat text for that gaming session. English - Toggle between English text and Chinese text on the GUI. \4.3-b Moving \___________ OMG!!! THERE'S AN ETTIN AND STORM GIANT HORDE COMING YOUR WAY! RUNNN!!!! ...you...don't know how to move, do you? Simple, move the mouse pointer in the direction you wish to move, and hold down the right mousebutton. Or, simply use the arrow keys to move in the direction you want to. NOW MOVE YOUR @$$! THOSE ETTINS AND STORM GIANTS DON'T LOOK LIKE THEY WANNA TALK!!! \4.3-c Other Players \__________________ Did'ja think that you'd be playing this Massively MULTIPLAYER Online Role-Playing Game ALONE? GET REAL! Many people play Dransik, and they all have different motivations. Some may be helping n00bs, while others will kill n00bs. Hey, it's their Dransik life. Let 'em do what they want! \4.3-d Talking to Other Players \_____________________________ To talk to other players, press [t] and start typing. Press [Enter] when done, and everyone in your immediate vicinity will hear (see) you talk. Whispering to other players is simple. Stand next to another player, hit [t], click the ear button and type your whispered message. Everyone that is one step away from you will hear (see) your whispered message. If you get into a guild, a third button appears. Click it, and type to send a message to any members in your guild that are online, no matter where you are. \4.3-e NPCs \_________ Anyone who is not a player is an NPC. \4.3-e1 What is an NPC? \_____________________ "NPC" stands for "Non-Player Character," which is a character that is computer controlled. NPCs are somewhat easy to distinguish from players. They move slower, and attack only when provoked. NPCs are also your items. That shovel? Yes, that's an NPC. \4.3-e2 NPCs to Know About \________________________ Guards - Usually stand at a town entrance, or they patrol around. If a monster enters their immediate vicinity, they attack it, no matter what. The same goes for criminals, and they will jail you if you've committed enough crimes. Monsters - Range from triddles and bats to ettins and horned devils. They attack any non-hostile NPC or player, and will follow pursuit until you lose 'em, you kill 'em, or they kill you. \4.3-e3 Interacting With NPCs \___________________________ Double-click an NPC that is no more that two steps away to talk to it, haggle with it, whatever. Some NPCs start simple quests, awarding you with 250-750 experience into your experience pool, and some good items to sell. \4.3-f Venturing Out \__________________ Unless you want to stay in Silvest all your life and not have any fun, you have to venture out of the town. When you go out, try to bring at least 10 pieces of cooked food as emergency rations, and a few (Greater) Healing Potions (a.k.a. "pots") \4.3-f1 Combat Mode \_________________ Want to get rid of that huge horde of bats, snakes, orcs, kobolds, ettins, and horned devils all by yourself? Press [A] to enter combat mode. In combat mode, your character pulls out a weapon, and the mouse pointer turns red. Click on a hostile NPC to target it. If you have Target Protection off, you can target anyone. \4.3-f2 Attacking \_______________ While targeting something, just go right up to the target to attack it. Attack damage depends on Strength, your weapon, and whatever the computer rolls out. Yes, the hostiles fight back too. Never under estimate an enemy. A skeleton may not look intimidating, but if you aren't properly equipped, you'll be dead in no time. In the case that you run low on HP, RUN!!! Find a safe spot and heal yourself! \4.3-g Justice System \___________________ Face it. If you break enough laws, those guards'll bust your butt. Good if you're always targeted by PKers, bad it you ARE the PKer. \4.3-g1 Criminal (Crim) Status \____________________________ The first offense leads to a criminal tag on your name. In this case, some people will fear you, others will be more compelled to attack. The criminal tag is a grey name. You get this tag by: Hitting a non-hostile NPC (P) Murdering a non-hostile NPC Hitting a non-criminal Player(P) Murdering a non-criminal Player Looting a body (P) Attempting to loot a body (P) Committing a crime with a (P) results in getting criminal points. Get 10, and you're on the wanted list, No matter what status you're in. \4.3-g2 Jail \__________ The jail, wa-a-ay east of Jeel, is where all the roadside scum are scraped up and put. You get jailed by a GM for breaking a game rule many times, or for getting caught by a guard when criminal points total 10 or over, and you may drop an item. You get a certain time until you are released. This time increases for every crime you commit. To lower the time, you must move rocks to a crusher in the quarry until you run out of time. To see how long you've got left, talk to the judge in the courtroom. You may get visited by a friend/enemy/partner in crime/whetever. If this happens, you get paged to come to the visiting room. You can visit for as long as you'd like. Just remember to get back to work to get out faster. Just remember, jail doesn't reprogram a person's mind. They WILL PK again. \4.3-h Skills \___________ You got skillz! In what? Whatever you want. Wanna be a super-duper-uber farmer? Or a bigtime hunter with swords? \4.3-h1 Learning New Skills \_________________________ Some skills are learned by doing whatever it is you're going to do. When ya dig a hole to plant a seed, and you don't know how to plant (you don't have the "Planting" skill), you automatically learn it. Hey, as I said: Dransik is a world of opportunity. You don't move down a path made by fate. Make your own path. Some skills, like Item Identification, are only learned through quests. You don't gain experience when Identifying an item, so you don't learn it. (NOTE: The quest for item identification requires you to go to Josody, which is on the Mainland. Since the Mainland was taken out, you cannot finish this quest.) \4.3-h2 Building up Skills \________________________ To build up a skill, use that skill more. You can also build up skills by double-clicking the skill of choice and choosing how much experience from your E. Pool to put in. \4.3-i Tips \_________ Take it from me, these tips will help. \4.3-i1 Easy Experience \_____________________ If you want easy experience, farm or mine. Most tradeskills give about 100-200+ experience, even if you screw up miserably. Quests are also good, fast experience. \4.3-i2 Easy Money \________________ Again, farm/mine/chop trees, and sell some of your spoils. Keep some for other stuff. (NOTE: In farming, Pecans are the edible goldmine! With pecans, you can keep growing any you pluck off of the trees. Low hunger? Overweight? Eat a few! I've made thousands of gold with pecans!) \4.3-i3 Hunting \_____________ When hunting, follow these tips to keep yourself and others safe and happy. BE PREPARED Bring at least 10 cooked food with you as emergency rations, and some pots (remember, pots = (greater) healing potions) for those dubious 50 on 1 situations. Just make sure you won't put yourself overweight. CASH IN FREQUENTLY "CRAP!!! All my stuff just got looted!" I hear that A-A-ALL the time! Make sure that you go back to town and cash in BEFORE you die! Ya wanna end up as a beggar, bumming gold off of people? And if you get looted, remain calm. I freaked out a few times, only 'cuz I kept getting rekilled. DON'T VULCH Vulching is attacking a monster that someone already has under control, or taking battle spoils without consent of the person that killed/is killing the monster. Doing that can earn you a bad rep, and a title as PK Target. DON'T DUMP When you see someone on the side of the road, and you've got a horde of monsters after you, let them follow you for a while. Be considerate, and don't lose the monsters so they go after that level 5 person with the dagger and tunic on... \4.4 FAQ \______ Here are some Frequently Asked Questions I hear ingame: "How do I get out of Silvest [Island]?" Follow the path north, and east until you reach an outpost that's left of a mountain range. Go south (watch out for skeletons!) and look for a cave. Go in the cave, then go to the norther part. Go in the room, and touch the crystal ball. Welcome to Krythan Island. "How do I get into the Kobold Castle?" I don't know... yet. I'll find out soon enough. "Can I please have some stuff? I'm a n00b!" No, you may not. I'f I'm feeling generous, I may give some gold. But otherwise, no. I worked HARD for MY stuff, and I'm not gonna give it all to a n00b that just signed on for the first time. Get stuff yourself. "OMG!!! ALL MY STUFF WAS LOOTED!!!" Read the last Q. If you have any other Q's, just e-mail them to me. (email@example.com) \5. Outro \_______ Special Thanks to: Myself, for making this. (w00t!) ArchDuke, for making the first FAQ for Dransik ever on GameFAQs. That was motivation enought to get myself to write this. AsylumSoft, for making one HELLUVA game! A few n00bs, 'cuz they are the reason for the FAQ section. ------------ "Th-th-th-tha-that's all folks!" E-MAIL, MSN IM and YAHOO!
