Where should I begin? How about the different skills!
Wood-Cutting- As your woodcutting level increases you will cut wood quicker and have access to better hatchets allowing you to also get wood quicker.
Construction- Constructing will allow you to build your own shop, house or boats.
You will need wood and a hammer to build.
Fishing- Fishing will allow you to fish fish which you can eat when it has been cooked.
You will be starting fishing at Lisim with a net.
Cooking- Self Explanitory...
Mining- Currently in the game the only place where you can mine is at Rynir Mines and you are only able to get copper, tin and iron ore. Once you level your mining you will have access to more ores, faster mining speeds and better pickaxes (also increase mining speed).
Smithing- Interlinked with mining, make items out of bars!
Theiving- You can theive other people! Watch out who you theive though, they might get angry...
Fighting- The normal: attack, defense, and strength + HP
It's only been going on for about a week, now trust me you can't just play this game and get mad that your not progressing...You have to give it at least 3-4 day's worth of playing, then you begin to see it's true beauty!
I'd reccomend this game to anyone that liked Runescape Classic!
