Everything you would want to know!

byAlexis Ongsansoy

You either know everything there is to know when playing new games like Roblox’s Arcane Lineage right at the start, or you’re completely stumped given how the game doesn’t enjoy holding your hand as much. If you’re the latter then it’s to be expected, most RPGs are like that after all.

But don’t worry, your hands are safe with us! We’ll guide you through the basics of the game until you’re able to play around on your own. Now let’s take a tour of the town you’ll be starting at once you load in.

Complete Beginner’s Guide

At the start of the game, you’ll spawn in Caldera. Think of this as the central hub of the game as this is where you’ll manage your armor, choose classes for your character, quests, and weapons. There’s a teleporter in the middle of the town so you won’t have any difficulty finding the various shops and services lying around as long as you use that as a landmark.

Getting Started

You won’t see much on your screen at the start aside from your character’s name on the lower left side of your screen. The other things you can see is the amount of health that you have along with your gold and essence. Essence is marked by the blue flame icon underneath your health bar. You can get more gold and essence by going to the bounty board in front of the weapons shop.

When you’re done choosing a weapon for the class you want to play as, head to the front of the weapons shop again and stand on the red carpet to meditate. After you get enough essence, press “M” on the carpet.

This will take you to the Spirit Domain, a place where you can turn your essence in for Strength, Arcane, Endurance, Speed, or Luck. Here’s a quick description of each stat if you’re aiming for a specific build:

  • Strength – Increases your damage output.
  • Arcane – Increases the range and damage of attacks that uses magic.
  • Endurance – Increases the amount of health you have.
  • Speed – Increases your movement speed and lets you move ahead of everyone else.
  • Luck – Increases your crit chance along with loot drops.

Now run to the opposite side of the room when you get your class for the first time along with soul points. You get soul points from defeating bosses. Interact with the floating eye to get access to three paths. These paths will consist of Destruction, Empowerment, and Sundry.

Investing into Destruction will further increase your damage output. Empowerment will give you more bonuses to your health. We recommend starting with Sundry first as the first few branches will give significant bonuses to your gold and essence gain.

This is great because what you invest in these paths will carry on to your next character if you ever make one. Which means you’ll spend less time grinding the further you progress through the tree.

Classes in the game will be further divided into subclasses as you get stronger. But to start with the basics, head over to the weapons shop again to choose your first weapon. Each weapon will lead you down to a subclass, here’s what you can expect from each weapon:

  • Sword – Berseker / Paladin
  • Dagger – Assassin / Rogue
  • Spear – Impaler / Saint
  • Staff – Necromancer / Elementalist
  • Your Fists – Dark Wraith / Monk

For the super classes, you’ll need to go to certain trainers you can find on different locations in the game. For reference, you can check our Arcane Lineage – Super Class Guide.

Bounty Board

The Bounty Board will be your bread and butter for the most part of the beginning of the game. It’s easy to find as its right in front of the weapons shop, which is also just to the left of the meditation carpet. The bounties you take will get you more gold and essence as you progress. The quests will range from fetching items to defeating a certain number of mobs.

Think of the combat as if it were Pokémon or Final Fantasy. Why? Because the gameplay relies on turns, whenever you encounter an enemy party you will have at least five options to choose from for your actions. These would be Attack, Item, Guard, Meditate, and Escape. Choose one action and then the game will make you choose your target next. Here’s what each action can do for you:

  • Attack – Attacks your enemy, if you have other skills besides the basic strike attack more options will pop up.
  • Item – Use items that can help you during battle, such as health potions.
  • Meditate – Receive one energy at the cost of giving yourself a debuff.
  • Guard – Blocks an incoming attack.
  • Escape – Attempt to escape from battle. You have a 20% base chance to do so. If you fail the fight will continue.

And that will do for the complete beginner’s guide for Arcane Lineage. Keep taking in quests around Caldera and you’ll get to the Desert in no time! We also have a mage guide if you happen to favor magic over everything else.
