  • Once you get the opportunity to get skill points from the places that give you them upon the first clear, they're account-wide rather than per character, so if you make another character, you can get a head start.
  • In a similar vein, sometime if you accept a side task and you've already fulfilled the objective as your current character, the NPC will go "oh, okay then" as you auto-complete it. For example, when one NPC tells you to check out some training area that you've already visited, this will happen. Based on my experience, this only applies to things like visiting spots; if it's something like gathering or fighting, it probably won't happen.
  • You've got a starting inventory of 100 spaces and you can directly sell your junk for cash, as well as put anything worth keeping into both a general storage for all characters and a character-specific storage. In the instances you go over the 100, there's also a temporary drop storage. Get acquainted with the system because with all of the things you're going to be beating up, you'll need it.
  • Since this is an online game, you can party up and gain more EXP for doing so, but you will still gain EXP for enemies other people take out if you don't join a party as long as they're close enough to you for you to claim it. You will also get items like this, so watch your inventory space.
  • If an enemy is too high a level, you just run. If you try to leech EXP off of it if someone can take them down or if you're persistent enough to kill it anyway, you get nothing. You'll know it's too high a level when you deal only 1 point of damage per hit and the game outright tells you.
  • For tasks like "find fruit," you can set it as the main objective from the task menu and whenever you pass by any, it will immediately show up on your minimap and on the field with a marker. Handy when gathering gets too annoying for you.
