All you need to know to start playing

In this article, you will find out how to log in for the first time, how to choose skills, the character’s name, gender, race, appearance, initial city, merchants, and in-game commands.

Logging in for the first time

Type in your login and password and press Enter.

Select a game world. Most of the time it’s the only one on the list, so just press on the planet icon.

The game client is downloaded from an official website, so there are classes like Ninja, Necromancer, Samurai, and Paladin. They are inactive here, only on the POL server.
Select Warrior or Mage.
The best way of choosing your character would be to find some information about professions and select an appropriate skill set.

You may choose 4 skills and main properties. It’s not very important to select specific ones, as all the skills can be trained and stats may be improved. When choosing skills, you will also receive items required for selected skills.

Choose a man or woman. Because this is a POL server, the rest of the options will be unavailable.
Please name your character decently. Otherwise, your character will be renamed by the administration according to the game rules.

Skip this choice as it won’t do much and just continue.

When a character is created he/she will be placed in a room of race selection. Find more below.

Zuluhotel game races

Barbarian. Battle madness of Barbarians makes them desperately look for weaknesses in their enemies, therefore the chance of crit increases by 10% in short-range combats.

Elf. The ancient art of Archery and perfect Elfs’ vision allow a chance of crit in long-range combat to increase by 10%.

Orc. Creatures that got out of the depths of the caves, learned to adapt to any conditions, having learned to survive, acquired the ability of 5 damage reflection.

Goblin. They were once human, but were exiled for their dishonorable crimes and had to hide underground. Later they became goblins, as a result of which they have a +5% bonus to dodge chance +10% Intelligence.

Dwarf. These short people get 10 units less damage from any attacks and magic because of natural resistance and their physical and spiritual strength.

Dark Elf
. The ancient traditions of using both dark and light magic among Dark Elves allow them to use magic more efficiently. So, their magic increases by 15%, and the time of completing a spell is decreased by 5%.

Human. Raised in big cities they are used to paving the way without being noticed. As a result, the chances to find a hiding human decrease by 5%. Also, hit accuracy in long- and short-range combats increase by 5%.

Race bonuses: Dodge, Damage Reflection, Damage Absorb are effective only against monsters.

Entering the game world

After choosing a race, your character will be moved to the starting location, where you cannot be robbed or killed by another player, but animals can die there and monsters can kill you.

Here you will find all the necessary to train your skills and stats to 90.

For fast and effective skill training, you should know which tools to buy and where, and what else may be required.

Newbie Land

The initial city is called Newbie land. It is a nice and safe place to start from. Here is everything you need to start training your skills.

Newbie land is an Island that you can’t sail from. To enter other lands there is a world portal on the left of the Inn.

On the right side of the island, there are mines and dungeons.

Within the whole land, the skills are trained 3 times faster than in the outer world from 0 to 90.

Start items depending on the skill

As mentioned above, choosing a specific skill will give items that can also be purchased from merchants. These items are needed for an easier start to the game.

If a skill isn’t in the table, that means no start items are given for it.

Some of the players create many characters and then pass all the items received to the main character and develop them faster. Others start saving for a house right at the beginning.
