Game Progression
General Leveling Tips
  • Focus on equipping the highest level equipment you can during the story.
    • Make sure to check your inventory regularly in case you picked up a piece of equipment you didn't notice - this will allow you to deal more damage and enter dungeons.
  • If your item level is lower than the minimum requirement for the dungeon you are trying to enter, make sure to go back to the previous dungeon you did and re-run it to get some equipment to meet this requirement - you can even run them in Hard mode for the higher item level gear.

True Courage

The accessories you drop whilst levelling don't have any engravings on it. However, you can still acquire engravings by getting choosing the engraving books from the packs you receive along your journey.

To use these books open your character window (P), below your weapon slot you have 2 additional slots, in these you can add your engravings. You can do so by left clicking on a slot, then clicking and dragging your chosen engraving to each respective slot.

Remember that there are two engraving tabs, Combat and Class, make sure to be in the right section or you might not find your engraving.

For example, if you want 1 high level engraving, you can equip the same engraving book twice.
