These are much more tricky to solo, especially at low levels, and a group of at least 2 players is recommended.

Here are a few questions and answers for new players just starting out.

Q: What are the different levels of weapon and armor quality in this game?
A: They range from basic (white), to improved (green), perfected (blue), heroic (purple), and legendary (gold).

Q: How long does it take to get my first purple weapon?
A: Because Fantasy Tales Online has random loot drops, it's perfectly feasible to receive a heroic weapon as a random drop from as early as level 1.

Q: How do I change where my character will spawn the next time I log in?
A: This can be achieved by sleeping in a bed. Beds can be found in every town in the Inn. The last place you chose to sleep will be the place where your character will start the next time you log in.

Q: I finally defeated that really difficult boss, and he dropped a trophy, what's that all about?
A: Trophy's can be used to decorate your house as a way to intimidate people, and to show off to other players just how many bosses you've slain.

Q: What happens to me if I die, do I lose all my items?
A: No, you keep all of your items. When you die, a small amount of copper is taken from that of which your character is carrying at the time of death.

Q: But, I'm trying to solo a raid dungeon ten levels higher than my own, how can I prevent losing all of my money?
A: You can store copper in one of the many banks found in most towns. Copper in the bank is safe, and isn't deducted from during death. Only the copper your character is carrying is taken.

Q: What are drop crates and how do I use them?
A: Drop crates are rewards from quests, and come in three different varieties. Improved Drop Crates can be right clicked in your inventory to be opened, and contain either a weapon or a piece of armor. The other two types require a Crate Key to be opened, which can be purchased from the in-game cash shop, or obtained as quest rewards, and from repeatable quests.

Q: The other two types are Perfected Drop Crate and Heroic Drop Crate, right? What's inside those?
A: As their names suggest, Perfected Drop Crates contain a perfected item or better, and Heroic Drop Crates are guaranteed to contain a heroic item.

Q: Should I open my Drop Crate the moment I receive it?
A: That's entirely up to you, and your current need for gear. However, if you receive a drop crate at, for example, level 12, and open it right away, you will receive a level 12 weapon or piece of armor, however, if you save the crate and open it at, say, level 30, then the same crate will contain a level 30 weapon or piece of armor. Drop crate rewards are comparable to your current level.

Q: I put all my Skill Points in the wrong talent, how can I respec?
A: Fear not. A Respec Token is available for purchase for a mere 1000 copper. The NPC selling this useful item is Odin. He can be found in the weapon shop in Bluevale.

Q: What's the deal with these quest orbs and raid orbs, are they novelty items?
A: At present, these orbs can be donated to Town Shrines on the islands of Burr, Shamble, and Woodmore. There is currently no other clear use for these items at this time.

Q: Wow, that answers almost all of my questions. Finally, do you have any advice for new players like myself?
A: Yes, the best advice I can offer is to press 'T' on your keyboard, to toggle targeting. It makes selecting the right enemy much more efficient, and speeds up the looting process. It's the most useful button on the keyboard.

Hi, same problem here. Right klick or drag and drop nothing is working. But only if you want to remove items from the bank. I really hope that there will be a hint or help for this problem. That's the only weak point for me till now. Apart from that this game is extremely awesome and reminds me of (Fantasy Online), a game I was addicted to. So many thanks for that great game and keep going on with this cool game.

I have tested a bit, I can't take my items out of the bank on Server EU and US2, but on US1 it's working fine. So maybe this will help other players with the same problem. I 'm from Austria, but now I play on US1. Happy leveling to all.

Could someone please fix the bank problem on EU-server? I have some items in the bank and can't use them anymore and I don't want to begin again on another server.
