Choose a server and customise your character

Once you've installed the game, the first thing you should do is select a server (or you can opt to play single player). You'll then be able to select your faction: will you be a human, and elf or a dwarf?

Once you've decided which faction to play, you get to customise your character. As soon as that is done, you're ready to play!

Zoom in and out by scrolling your mouse wheel up and down respectively. Run by holding Left Shift, Crouch by holding Left Ctrl and Jump by pressing Space. Access the Inventory by pressing I, Skills by pressing U Attack using LMB and sheath using Q.

Access the full in-game controls through the Setting tab on the Main Menu.
