Help Ranger Combat, Newbie Guide

Continued from 'help ranger quickstart' 



Time to go test your skills in combat. Use the teleport stone you have 

to get back to buju by typing 'summon'. Once back at Buju, you can enter 

the Newbie killing fields by typing 'portal'. At the portal, there is a 

machine that will provide you with basic equipment, type 'read plate' to 

see what it says and grab the equipment. After this, type 'equip' to 

start using them. 



Type 'enter' to enter the killing fields. Within these rooms should be a 

few very simple monsters such as frogs and small polar bears. Wander 

around a bit and get your bearings so that you can be ready to run if 

things go wrong. 



To prepare yourself for combat, type 'sc on'. This will report your 

health and spell points during battle. You can also type 'sc' at any 

time to see them. Set your 'wimpy' to 30 or any other number you feel 

comfortable with. Lastly, set looting on automaticly by typing 'set 

autoloot on'. 



Try to summon your Ranger Pet. This tiny beast will help you fight and 

gain exp. As a Ranger, it's understandable if your skill in spellcraft 

is limited, so do not despair if your spell fails, you can always try 

again when you have enough spell points regenerated. To cast the summon 

spell, type 'cast summon wild cat at mewl try very slow' 



You may change 'mewl' to any name you desire, as this will become the 

name of your pet cat. Be patient, this spell is slow. You may wish to 

grab a cup of coffee. 



If you've managed to summon your pet, use your 'beast speech' skill to 

talk to your pet. Type 'use beast speech at help me' to use the skill. 

Keep trying the skill untill you have success. This will show all 

available commands you have to guide your pet. To make your pet follow 

you, type 'use beast speech at follow me' 



It will now follow you and aid you in battle. Be sure to keep it happy 

by petting and well fed by typing: 'use beast speech at eat corpse' when 

you have a fresh kill on the ground. 



Now it's time to attack. To kill your first mob, type: 'use kick at 

frog' (or any other hapless beast in that room) 



A battle will now begin. To continue using your skill, simply type 'use 

kick' without a target. This ensures that you will not begin battle with 

the next monster in the room. 



Hopefully all goes well and your poor frog is now living in mud heaven. 

You will now want to give it a proper burial. To do this, type 'dg' (or 

'use beast speech at eat corpse') Type 'score' or 'exp' to see how much 

you have gained. 



Scamper around in this area killing critters untill you have gathered a 

nice sum of experience and cash, then head back to the Ranger guild to 

up your skill percents. 



Also in Rangers, you have the opportunity to begin working on true 

Masteries, an aspect of the guild which is permanent to your character. 

Each time you play a ranger Ranger, your mastery will still be there to 

make your character stronger. Go to the guild hall and type 'path help' 

and choose your own path wisely.
