This guide is original from Arkena's post on MMOsite Forum

/Updated on Jul 29/

So this is my super huge comprehensive guide on typical stuff you'll find in DN. If you're reading this guide, you're either new to DN or you're curious about what's in this huge mound of text. Well this covers everything from being popped into DN and getting to a respectable level.

Originally I made this guide for DN KR, but I decided I'll try to make it as universal as possible to the other versions of DN.

This guide assumes for the most part that you may know what you're doing, though as a forewarning..

You will find some info that is not accurate with the version of DN that you play, such as content that has yet to exist (omg!) or slight differences in term or procedure. Remember, this guide is supposed to as universal as possible :|


Game Interface

Ok, so, yeah, Game Interface. Woo. Right. You'll figure out how to get accustomed to your shit here.
wasd to move, left click to attack, right click to kick (or special attack), spacebar to jump, to quick turn. Fun stuff.

1.1 - List of Menu Options
When you press Esc in game, you'll see 9 buttons in this order :

Help - More detailed information on in-game function.
Controls - Shows you default Keyboard Setup.
Channel Selection - Alternate way of changing channels besides hitting top right channel bar.
Game Options - Allows you to adjust In-game displays, public options, macros, video adjustment.
System Options - Allows you to adjust graphics, sound, control, voice chat.
Return to Village - Self-Explanatory. :|
Character Select - Really now.
Check Rating - See if you're old enough to be playing this game. If not YOU SHOULD BE SHOT!!!!!!!!11111
Escape - If you're stuck in an embarrassing situation (stuck literally), use this or /escape to further relieve yourself.
Quit Game - GTFO

1.2 - Changing your Controls to something more bearable
Alright, so you might notice that your skills are at 1-0 and that you can tab through two bars by hitting ~. You might also realize having this annoying bar of skills can be REALLY frustrating.

So you'll want to change it right? well it can be a bit confusing but I'll explain how you can do that.

You'll have to go to [System] on the menu to work with your controls.

This is how I have my skills :
1 2 3 4 Q E R Z X C

G to quick-turn
~ to switch through the two bars
0 to Revive
and everything else in ignored locations (ex : num pad)

But wait! There were functions previously in E R and other places ;w If I try to switch to those the game tells me I can't.
-You're going to have to move those keys first to some unused keys on your keyboard, hit APPLY, THEN go back and move your skills into those newly-emptied spots. Yeah it's frustrating, but there's no other way about it.

Your preferences may differ from me, but you're still going to need to move stuff before replacing stuff, provided of course, unless the developers decide to stop being stupid and make it so that there's no conflict in overwriting keys. :|

1.3 - Becoming a hotkey whore
Probably the most useful thing available to us (and also widely abused).

Technically speaking these are best suited for difficult raids such as Seadragon, but we can't expect that from everyone, now can we :|

F1 = Heal
F2 = Attack
F3 = Follow me (or OMG HURRY UP U NOOB when used by DN NA's more graceful players)
F4 = Run Away
F5 = Stop
F6 = Help Me (this is fun to abuse if you want to confuse someone ;w)
F7 - F10 is adjustable.

Well knowing that the last 4 hot keys are adjustable, you can shove some revealing facts about yourself in there or whatever. In a foreign version though, these will provide useful for quickslotting some useful phrases.

1.4 - Chat Functions

/s or /1 = general
/g or /2 = guild
/p or /3 = party
/w or /4 = whisper
/r = Last person from whisper

C(default) = Chat Command

You can create a social chatroom or trade room using the Chat command, for when you, you know, get bored or want to try and screw people of their gold for your supar omgawd amazing +11111111 items.
