Weapon and armor rating
Before I start with the mission, I should make sure that my gear rating is high enough. It's visible in the character stats window on the very left of the screen. Being fully equipped with items of normal rarity, both my weapon rating and armor rating are 100%. This value is okay for a mission, but of course higher values would make it easier.
Finding a mission
Lets's travel to a mission. It's marked on the world map with two crossed swords. The mission difficulty is adapted to the highest player level in the current land, on the current day. Missions are generated daily. So when you're finished you can spend the night in an inn and get a set of fresh missions.
Preparing for a mission
It's vital to have enough life potions when doing missions. You can craft them from flasks and heartflowers. Flasks can be bought in item shops.
The mission boss
Currently, each mission involves defeating a boss. I'm thinking about adding more goals in the future. In this canyon, I have to defeat an angry dwarf woman.
A key to defeating a boss is dodging. When you dodge, you're immune against attacks for 0.6 seconds. It costs stamina. Rogues and rangers have lots of stamina regeneration on their equipment, so they're the best dodgers. Warriors have lots of armor, and mages have a mana shield to avoid damage.
Defeating the boss completes the mission. The boss itself drops random, quite good items. From the mission you get much XP, a random item for your class, and platinum coins.
With platinum coins gained from missions, you can visit the mission master. He is in the center of each city, in a big tower. Here you can spend your platinum coins to upgrade your weapons or armor to your current level. This can be done only once for each item. So, if you find a really good item which is lower than your level, you can adapt it to your level.
