Here is a starting guide for some of you. Props to Margay for the guide.
What the different character statistic mean:
Every character has the same statistics. As you gain levels you can add points to each to improve your abilities in different ways. The statistics are:
Strength: Strength is your muscle power. It affects how much damage you do with melee weapon like axes and swords. It also changes how much you can carry, your physical defense, and your hit points. Soldiers, Knights, and Champions rely on Strength.
Dexterity: Dexterity is your balance, your aim, and your ability to make controlled movements. It affects your ability to hit things with bows and guns, move quickly, and your ability to dodge attacks. Dexterity is the key attribute for Hawkers, Raiders, and Scouts.
Intelligence: Intelligence is your ability to comprehend complex ideas. It controls your Magic Points and helps your magical weapons (such as wands) deal more damage. Intelligence is an important attribute for Muses, Clerics, and Mages.
Concentration: Concentration reflects your ability to focus, and notice details. It affects your ability to hit in combat, and your ability to successfully craft items. Concentration is most important for Dealers, Artisans, and Bourgeois.
Sense: Sense is your intuition. It affects your ability to critically hit enemies, and improves the quality of items you craft. Depending upon the way your character works, this statistic can be very important (such as for an Artisan). Most characters don't develop sense very much, but it can be useful for the right character type.
Charm (Charisma): This statistic is one of the most confused statistics in ROSE. I call it Charisma, because it reflects your leadership. In my experience, Charisma:
1. Increases a monster's hostility toward you. A high cha rating will result in you being attacked more often than others with lower Charm scores.
2. Improves the rate, quality, and number of items that drop from monsters you defeat.
3. Improves the rewards you receive from quests, such as money and experience.
4. (Controversial) Increases the experience points for a party as based on the party leader's charm.
5. (Controversial) Increases the difficulty rating of monsters for the purpose of figuring out experience and drop rates. (it doesn't increase the ACTUAL difficulty - the monster is the same, but a character with a higher charm will receive a small amount more experience and slightly better drops from them)
It is important to note, that the actual effect Charm/Charisma has is not completely tested. While I wouldn't suggest investing all of your points in Charm, I wouldn't laugh at you for increasing it if you think it helps. Mileage may vary.
There are a lot of ways to deal with the beginning of the game. For me, getting to my first job is important, so I tend to rush through the early levels. If you want to get your first job quickly, and have enough money and supplies to get by for a little while, here's what I do:
1. Kill your first mini-jelly bean, then talk to Arua's Fairy. Follow every single chat option you're given. Every time you choose a new option, you will get a small xp reward, and she also will give you Attribute Points, clothes, and food. Within 5 minutes, you are level 2 and will have a quest to kill Mini Jelly Beans.
2. To begin with, I put every point I get into either Strength or Con (mostly Strength). This allows me to kill things much more quickly. However, currently you are allowed to reset your statistics for free before level 15. If that changes, you will want to be more careful about how you spend your points.
3. As soon as you complete the mini-jelly bean quest, talk to Arua's Fairy again and get your second quest, mini-choropies. After that, get the third quest (Mini-Choropies with a timer). After that, you can either follow option A, or jump to step 4.
A. Royal Jelly Beans. On the Island there are Royal Jelly Beans which you can kill quickly for some decent experience points and a Royal Jelly drop. The Royal Jellies are worth a fair amount of money in the real world, so you might consider stockpiling some of these while they are easy to get.
4. Talk to Arua's Fairy and insist that you be sent to the Adventure Plains. From here you can get three quests from the Village Chief to collect Jelly Bean Hides, Spools of Thread, and Flanae Petals. Also, talk to Myad (the old fisherman) who will give you free food if you ask. Then talk to the Guide for some quick experience points.
5. Now run out and start killing jellies and mini-choropies. Don't bother buying new equipment as it will be junk in a few minutes anyway. Just equip whatever drops. At the most, buy a bamboo spear, which will help you kill things more quickly.
6. Every time you gain a level, talk to Myad and he will give you more food. He will keep this up until level 9, and you will end up receiving (literally) hundreds of tasty morsels from him.
7. Do every tutorial quest as they come. The are (in order):
a. Kill Choropies - You'll find the most choropies in the central part of the southern half of the map. Don't bother with Mother Choropies, and steer clear of any Spotted Choropies you see.
b. Kill Flanae - If you follow the southern ridge around toward the center of the zone you wil find a clearing next to a bridge where three flanae live. By the time you kill the last one, the first one will have respawned, and you can simply kill them all very quickly.
c. Kill Pumpkins - Pumpkins live in the Luxom Towers area to the North. The easiest way to find hordes of them is to take the western entrance and simply kill them on your way to Zant. I occasionally get good items from them as well, so I sometimes take the time to kill more than the 10 the quest requires.
8. BEFORE YOU DO THE PUMPKIN QUEST - You can kill three birds with one stone. Here's how:
a. Talk to Seyon in the Village and agree to deliver his price list to Ulysses in Zant.
b. Talk to the Village Elder and agree to take his package to his superior in Zant. (getting the idea here?)
c. Zant is just North of Luxom Towers. On your way there, kill the pumpkins, then deliver the package. Next, deliver the price list to Ulysses and agree to take one back to Seyon. Also, talk to Lena for a quick experience reward. Now run back to Adventure Plains, give Seyon his pricelist (and agree to take another one to Ulysses), give the letter to the Elder, and talk to the priest. You're either level 10 or 11 now.
9. Run back to Zant to get your first job quest.
10. Talk to Cornell to find out about your first job. After the job quest (AND BEFORE LEVEL 15) you may want to reset your stats and reinvest the points you spent to better suit your new job.
Note: The Seyon-Ulysses pricelist quest is a very convenient way to gain a lot of extra experience early. Before you hit level 20, you'll be making constant trips between Zant and the Adventure Plains (about 14 if you ONLY follow the quests). All in all, that adds up to about 3 - 4 levels you can gain JUST FROM THE PRICELIST QUEST. =)
If you've done everything I've discussed thus far, you should be level 10 - 12 in about 30 minutes to an hour, with between 10,000 and 20,000 Zulees (assuming you've sold everything except what you wanted to wear or eat*)
*IMPORTANT: Do not sell IRON THREADS or BLUE ITEMS. It is very common for these to drop at low levels. IRON THREAD sells for between 1100 and 1500 Zulees to Dealers (it's used to make Fairy Wings), and BLUE ITEMS are rare items that have special stats and may sell for far more to an interested player. (Depending on what the item is, you may want to keep it for yourself). There are players (unfortunately) who will try to convince you to give up these items for less than they are worth, so shop around before taking any offers if you are new to the game. If you aren't sure if you are getting a fair price, don't sell. Better safe than sorry.
So now that I can get my first job, what do I want to be?
This is a very common question, and it's entirely up to you. Each of the different jobs has different strengths and weaknesses, and different skills and abilities. So, let's take a second to review them.
Soldiers (aka- Tanks) are the front line fighters. They excel in physical combat and can go toe to toe with the toughest monsters (mobs) in the game. Their skills revolve around being able to hit hard and take damage, as well as around being able to protect party members from injury. For a new player, this is often the easiest job to learn, while still offering a lot of room for experimentation for more experienced players. The common trend for this job is toward either Knight (Defensive Warrior) and Champion (Offensive Warrior). Alternative "builds" include the Speed Demon (High Attack Speed and Criticals) and the Bladespinner (Higher MP, with heavy combat skills).
Hawkers are a very popular class, and act as the speed and scouts of a group. They move fast and are good at avoiding and evading danger. They have a high dex to allow them to dodge when surrounded on all sides, and sometimes improve their strength to use hand held weapons such as Katars. Hawkers are best for players that enjoy "skill spamming" (using a variety of skills to damage and confuse the enemy). A Hawker will later become either a Scout (Ranged Combat Expert) or a Raider (High Speed Martial Artist). Hawkers generally can avoid being hit, but when they get hit, it tends to hurt. Still, a well-played Hawker can avoid the high repair and food costs of a Soldier.
Muses are the magic users of ROSE. They are the healers and the nukers ("nuking" is a reference to a powerful magic spell that does direct damage). While a muse can be made to stand alone, a muse is often most at home with a group, providing support to others and being ready to deliver the finishing blows with magical ferocity. While a muse has a great deal of power at range, up close they are vulnerable. Eventually, a Muse can become a Cleric (Defensive Healer) or a Mage (Offensive Spell Caster). An alternatives to the basic theme is the BowMuse (high dex with healing and support spells).
Dealers are the traders, the crafters, and the long range arsenal of the game. Dealers can craft items to sell, hire mercenaries to provide assistance, and can even learn to improve the type of items that drop from mobs and get discounts from the NPC stores. Unlike other classes, Dealers use guns and launchers to deal damage from a safe distance. However, with their low hit points and defense, they can often be heard screaming the battle cry "Not the face!" Dealers can be somewhat difficult to advance without a party, but the rewards are well worth the trouble, as they often end up becoming the wealthiest characters in the game, due to their ability to craft rare and unique items such as gems, carts, and wings. The dealer wil eventually advance to become either an Artisan (which focuses on crafting rare items) or a Bourgeois (which focuses on combat).
Once you've decided on your class, it's a good idea to come up with a character "build" you'd like to pursue. A character build is basic theme for how your character will develop as he gets stronger. Ask yourself what kind of character you want to play? Will your soldier be a reckless attacker with high strength and little defense? Will your muse be the person responsible for keeping everyone healthy and alive, or would you prefer to go solo? Don't worry yourself to sleep at night, of course. There is no "Best Build." The best build is the one that you enjoy.
it 2: 30 and server still not up >.>
