Dying's a big part if you're trying to be a fighter, because you gain a fraction of your ancestor's power. You raise your character up, kill them off - or they die - and you create a new one, but I believe there's a stone in the character creation area that had your old character's name, and you choose to create them off that character. Think you can only have 3 ancestors ON A CHAR at a time, so basically you can get stronger and stronger. The default ancestors have lower stats.Myann wrote:Yes, it is fun in my opinion; dying is the worst part, you will lose everything you worked hard for.
Tip: Never ever steal from someone's claim, they or someone else will kill you.
I'm sure people just took their fighters out to fight, and if they die then shrug it off because they'd have another good ancestor, and if they didn't well then they just keep building the character until they did. But killing off a char might only be good if you're in a good group with others, if you're trying to solo-play then it's gonna be difficult for sure. Having others around to help each other and keep a basic quality is pretty good. Otherwise, you're gonna be struggling a lot trying to just get good food and experience right away at such a low stat-point, unless you somehow stockpiled everything away that can last a good few months.
Doesn't mean you HAVE to, I wouldn't want to do that. Just means you won't have THE highest of a certain stat, and even so you might still be able to beat "the best" if you're careful and smart - but that's a big maybe. You can always get lucky and get a (sting?) off on someone moving, completely ignores their defense if you're hit while moving. At least stand still when something's gonna hit you, even if you're running from something like a bear there's a very small chance you can survive if you stand still instead of continual running.
HnH IS a download? It's definitely not browser-based. You just register, download the jar or exe or whatever it was, and run it.
Although I suggest using Ender's modded client. Ctrl N for night vision, and you can see-through objects like trees or walls or buildings (with the option to see their hitbox on the ground), and everything like that. Pretty dandy. Don't recall all the hotkeys or I'd help.
