DEFENDING YOURSELF - Achaea Online Help

13.3 DEFENDING YOURSELF

In order to defend yourself, it is crucial to:
a) be properly prepared in terms of defences and equipment
b) be aware of your surroundings
c) know your opponent's capabilities

A is covered in HELP PREPARATION.

In order to achieve B, you should spend a goodly amount of time exploring and
committing to memory the areas of Achaea in which you are most likely to spend
time and thus most likely to be attacked in. There are few things more
frustrating than trying to flee in unfamiliar territory when your opponent
knows the layout well enough to follow you with ease.

C can only be achieved with experience. Only after a significant number of
battles will you begin to know the capabilities of the various classes.
Remember that as long as you have learned something, it is worth dying, for
next time you will be that much better equipped to survive.
