    Interface Overview

    Guide create by iMetal

    While you are in the game there are many interfaces that you should be familiar with. In the screen below we have highlighted the buttons which will open these interfaces.

    [​IMG]

    Character window (C)

    Here you can manage your stats, equip your items and change your epithet.

    [​IMG]

    Combat Record (F)

    This tab shows how you have fared in your battles with other players.

    [​IMG]

    Mastery (D)

    Each time your character levels up, you are rewarded not only with Chi Points, but also with Mastery Points, which will be displayed here. From this tab you can assign your Mastery Points to the weapon skill of your choice.

    [​IMG]

    Kung Fu (S)

    This tab shows all of the Kung Fu skills you have learned, as well as the level of expertise (Cheng) you have reached in each of them. Note that Kung Fu skills depicted in grey have been learned, but not trained. Trained Kung Fu skills are displayed in full color.

    [​IMG]

    Living (L)

    This tab shows all of the collections you are currently working on, and your progress towards their completion.

    [​IMG]

    Quest (Q)

    This tab shows both current and completed Quests. Use the arrow keys at the top to move between different types of quests. For example, click to move from quests marked "Road to The Dragon" to quests marked "Road to Fate".

    [​IMG]

    Communities (V)
    This tab displays Master & Disciples, Hero Bands, Leagues and more.

    [​IMG]

    Inventory (I)

    When you open the inventory you will see what is held in each of the bags you carry. You have space for three bags to begin with. You are given the first one for free, and a second after a quest.

    [​IMG]

    Mini-Map (M)

    Pressing “M” brings up the mini-map, which shows helpful hints like the locations of NPCs (Non-Player Characters) whom you can speak with for quests or services. Note that your charater's location and heading are typically displayed on the mini-map.

    [​IMG]

    World Map (N)

    If you click on the globe icon while in the mini-map, or press “N”, it will bring up a map of the whole territory. This will allow you to contemplate where you may travel.

    Interface With Other Players

    If you click on other players or Deviant Clan members, a target window appears. This has several functions.

    Click on the human-shaped button in the lower-left corner to see information on other players. Click on the triangle button to see your options.

    Deviant Clan Info
    As Deviant Clan members are your greatest opponents, you may wish to compare your own abilities against theirs before initiating combat. If their name appears in White then they are of a similar level to you. If their name appears in Red then they are of a far higher level than you.

    Character Info
    You can check information on other players stats quite easily.
    Click on the player you wish to know about and then click on the "info" button that appears. The other player will be given the choice to "Show All" and may choose to accept or decline your request.

    To open a character info window you have to select the other player and then click on the little key as on this screen :

    [​IMG]

    Brief
    If the other player is not willing to give out information then you can only see their basic stats.
    In this case, the information on other players will be displayed in three degrees of information, dependant upon the difference in levels between you and your target.
    The more lvl you have with the other pplayer the better you will see the informations.

    Equipment
    If you are both willing it is possible to show the data on your Equipment to each other.
    This information is also displayed in three levels, and what you can see depends on the level difference.

    Attributes
    Players can also choose to show their Attributes.
    There are 3 varying stages of detail for Attributes as well.

    Show All
    If you both agree then all basic stats, Equipment and Attributes can be viewed.

    Character Menu
    The character menu shows the interactions that can be attempted between players. However, every action (except whisper) can be refused by the other player.

    Here a screen how to open the window :
