How do I cast a spell?

Most spells will have to cool down, a few seconds after casting from the quickbar. Remember, an enemy needs to be targeted to activate the spell.

What should I place in the Quickbar?

What kind of engine does Legends Of Dawn have?
- The complete Legends of Dawn RPG development tool is a fully featured in-house game engine designed for the creation and development of PC RPG and other games. Unlike most commercial game engines, this powerful tool is devised to provide an artist with a favourable workflow. It allows the production of exciting art sections e.g. materials, terrains, animations, lights, quests and interactive parts, without any programming assistance; only a mouse. The Editor is pluggable environment where programmers can quickly add their own tools, plugins and editors. Resource streaming in a separate thread allows you to create richer, larger and a visually more impressive world than ever before. Legends of Dawn comes with all the tools needed to construct this unique world.
Just how smart is the AI monster?
- Monsters come in all shapes and sizes in Legends of Dawn and display different AI behaviour. They can be destroyed only through challenging combat. Adaptable AI creature behaves differently depending on whether it is day or night. Virtually every enemy in the game: spider, flying creature or human can lose a body part e.g. leg, hand or head, producing spectacular battles. All creatures and NPCs have a moral code. Some will fight to the death, while others are cowardly and will try to escape. Such will fight only if there is no other alternative. Some creatures will wait in traps and use hidden attacks. Spiders are notorious for clinging on cliffs or dungeon ceilings. They lie in wait and drop on you when you least expect them. Elementals hide in their natural habitat e.g. earth elementals dig underground and water elementals hide in shallow water.
Where do quests take me?
- Each player that performs a quest will have a different experience. Two different players going on the same quest may not follow the same steps, because you can solve a quest in several different ways. NPCs often have something to say, or a quest to offer. The NPC will describe what you must do next and your Quest Log will be updated. You can check the status of your quests with the Quest Log.
What are the Races that you can play as in the Legends of Dawn game?
- Choose among three races - Human, Elf or Danian, and two genders - male or female. There are additional non-playable races in the world of Narr -- Dwarves and Rizars. Each adds vital components to the delightfully rich and complex blend of civilisations.
How do I start crafting?
- To start crafting open the craft panel represented by hammer button. A complex crafting system with over 25,000 usable items, allows you to make everything from food, metal, wood, stone and leather into weapons and armours.
How do I identify items?
- By using the "Identify Item" feature. You will find that magical items have to be identified in oracle shrines in various locations throughout the world, to discover the item's unique properties.
- The scripts of the silent dwarves say that the world of Narr awaits heroes, special mortals pure of spirit, that would seek out and reassemble the fragments of the shattered ancient apparatus. Pieces of the Dawn are unique, magical and powerful. Seek them out in stone chests scattered throughout the world, which bear the golden emblem of Dawn.
When do we get achievements?
- When you complete additional challenges. The list of all existing achievements in Legends of Dawn can be found in the Achievement panel.
What is the Bestiary?
- Bestiary is an illustrated Guide to the beasts and monsters of Legends of Dawn. Upon killing a monster, you receive information about the slain monster. To get more information, you will need to increase your kill count for the specific monster.
What's the deal with the Books?

- Each time your character levels up, you get an opportunity to permanently increase the value of the five ability scores - strength, dexterity, vitality, intelligence and charisma. Your seven resistance scores - fire, electric, cold, acid, poison, disease and magic, are combat statistics that mitigates incoming damage and effects.
What is this circular thing on the upper left corner?
- That is the minimap, a simplified version of a larger map. You will occasionally see red (enemies), green (player) and blue (NPCs) dots on it. Depending on your skills, it is possible to locate monsters using your minimap display. But beware, some creatures are stealthy and do not appear on the minimap. This is especially dangerous when you encounter creatures with hidden attacks.
Where is the map?
- Use the button marked 'M' when you want an overview of the entire map. The green arrow somewhere on the map, marks your own position.
