DEFENDING YOURSELF - Lusternia 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 opponents 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 Lusternia 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.
