Training for Party Combat  [NEW]  [Updated]

The Hall of the Novice offers some training exercises for party combat.

To gain access to those training exercises, speak with a Smith at an Adventurers' Guild after reaching Disciples of War or Magic level 15 and above.

Once the Hall of the Novice is unlocked, training exercises for each role (Tank, Healer, and DPS) become available. To take those exercises, be a class for the training you wish to take and speak with the same NPC.

Some exercises award you equipment upon completion, which is useful in the early stages of your adventure. It is highly recommended to take advantage of this training as soon as you reach level 15.

You especially do not want to miss the Brand-new Ring, which is given when you complete the last training exercise, as it increases EXP earned by 30% until level 30! So once you obtain it, make sure to equip it!

* Pieces of equipment from the Hall of the Novice can be reobtained by completing the training exercises again even if they are accidentally discarded.
* Completed exercises can be repeated via the button located at the bottom right corner of the Hall of the Novice window.
