1. The game has been well optimized. Even a computer purchased 5 years ago can run this game blazingly smooth at all times. The difference is only 10+ fps. The fps can reach 130 on our testing computer.

2. The game delivers an impressive striking feel and sharp visual effects, such as screen vibration, skill vibration and burrow collapse.

3. Skills are powerful and their effects are devastating. Its combat visuals may be even a notch above Diablo3.

4. Perfect magic spells featured with modern elements. Ember Lightning is a very powerful spell possessing devastating destructive power.

5. Move your mouse over a health potion placed on a shortcut key slot, right click while holding the Shift key to restore your pet's HP.

6. Fishing is easy. To guarantee 100% success, you have to wait until the moving blue circle becomes red and then left-click it.

7. Open your inventory and enter the Fish interface. With a right click on fish you hook, your pet will be able to eat that fish and shapeshift into a monster (As for what kind of monster your pet will be transformed into, it is based on the breed of fish. There are certain fish that will work magic on your pet once being eaten. No monsters will be able to rival it. You just see it bullying a bevy of mobs, even a Boss.)

8. Pet's inventory icon can be found at the top left corner. Open its inventory window, click items in your inventory while holding the Shift key to move them into your pet's inventory, which means this game allows each character to have 2 inventories.

9. Pet will never die. Once its HP bar hits zero, the pet will regain HP automatically. So, unless you want to maintain some combat prowess for your transformed pet, it is recommended not to help your pet restore HP.

10. Alchemist is an awesome character. An arcane Alchemist is specialized in casting Iceshock and Ember Lightning spells. They can wield two staves to attack monsters in the distance. Basically speaking, if you are not an English speaker but able to play the English version of this game, it will be easy for you to play it at Very Hard difficulty.
