To help new players get started smoothly, safewow makes a list of tips that help save time at the beginning. See what they are below.
1. Combat Basics

Blade & Soul has a reactive, action-based fighting system that you might not be familiar with when it comes to MMOs. Much of the terminology from fighting games actually applies here: spacing, frame data, combos, juggles, etc. As such, the combat system of Blade & Soul is one of the best in the MMO genre, even though the game has been out for several years already in Korea and other Asian territories.
First and foremost, you need to have the enemy in front of you and within the distance necessary of your chosen attack. That might sound obvious, but when it comes to dungeon raids, enemies move around the environment a lot and the game relies on manual targeting. Apart from bosses and semi-bosses, most enemies won’t have telegraphing data so you need to watch out for the attack animations of an enemy to dodge and counter properly.
When there are telegraphs, they come in the form of yellow and red zones that appear beneath the boss’s feet that tell you when one of their attacks are about to come off. You’ll want to avoid red zones like the plague as they are pretty much unblockable.
2. Horde Those Coins… No, Seriously
One of the first things you’ll notice about the economy in Blade & Soul is that almost everything you sell is worth 1 measly bronze coin… in a place where vendors sell dumplings for about 5 silver coins, or 500 bronze coins. What the hell? That said, keep your money close to your chest and don’t spend them unless you absolutely have to.
I recommend spending money either in the marketplace (shortcut key ‘F5′) or the loot auctions that pop up during a dungeon like the Blackram Narrows (more on this dungeon later). Near the endgame, the amount of money it takes to upgrade your weapon, soul shield, and accessories by feeding them junk becomes extremely high, so you’ll want to save your coins for that as well
3. Don’t Miss Surveys and Daily Dash for Free Items
Who doesn’t like free items? At every two levels or so (it becomes more spaced out after Level 18), you will gain access to surveys from Blade & Soul where you answer a few multiple-choice questions and fill out a comment. Completing these gets you all sorts of healing items, keys for opening chests, and unsealing charms to access rare equipment drops.
Also don’t miss out on the Daily Dash, a simple game of luck that looks like Candyland. Every day, you get two spins that have you move anywhere from 1-6 spaces on the 100-space board. About once every three or four steps, you will pick up free items that get progressively rarer as you move along. Reach the end, and you’ll receive a special item (in the opening month, that’s a cool outfit). Just hope you don’t spin too many 1s.
4. Don’t Waste Your Keys and Unsealing Charms, Salvage Crap Instead
Keys and unsealing charms are rather rare. They cost an extreme amount of money when you’re starting out, and the only way to earn them are through quests, surveys, Daily Dashes, crafting, and a few other means. Keys are used to open locked chests that drop occasionally, whereas unsealing charms make it possible for you equip weapons and soul shield pieces that have been sealed. Sometimes, you need to use both a key and a unsealing charm to get to the item you want.
But both of these items are rare enough that you shouldn’t waste them on low-level green and blue items. Many times, it’s better to save the fodder for either leveling up the weapons and accessories you already have (you don’t need to unseal weapons or accessories to use them as fodder), or salvaging them into components for fusion later down the road. I made the mistake of not knowing that I could break soul shield pieces down, so learn from my folly.
5. Experiment With Skill Points
Skill points can change your character’s skill set dramatically. At level 15, you’ll start earning a single skill point for you to assign, but you’ll need to get through Act I, Chapter 17 before you can start putting those points into good use. I was about Level 18 when I got to Chapter 17 so you may have some extra skill points to fiddle around with.
