GAME GUIDE

Introduction

Sequel to the popular MMORPG MU Online, MU Legend takes a brand new approach to the ARPG genre. With new game mechanics, combat system, and character progression, MU Legend will hook long time MU Online fans and newbies alike. Featuring Unreal Engine 3 graphics and fully optimized for PC gaming, MU Legend’s immersive combat and intuitive controls are impressive for an MMOARPG.

Getting Started

MU Legend currently offers 5 unique classes to choose from. Whether you are a solo-player or someone who performs well in a party, different classes and different character builds will suit even the most unique play-style. 

  • Basic Controls
    • You can control your character by using the mouse. Left clicking in an open area will let your character move to the destination point.
    • The Space button can be used for confirming certain dialogues and tasks.
    • Skills are assigned to certain keys in the keyboard. You can customize your skill bars to your preference.
    • In combat, left clicking will trigger a basic left-click attack. If you want to move while in combat, make sure that the mouse pointer is not targeting any mobs or monsters. This will allow you to use left-click for your movement.
  • Logging in
    • Upon logging into the server, players will be prompted to register a 4-digit pin for enhanced security purposes.
    • 3 Character Slots will be available to everyone. Players will have an option to add additional character slots.
  • Classes
    • Currently, there are a total of 5 character classes to choose from:  Dark Lord, Blader, Whisperer, Spellbinder, and War Mage. Each class has a unique skill set. The combat system allows players to switch their equipment anytime they want, therefore switching the character’s play-style as well. A War Mage can use a staff to deal massive AOE damage to enemies while staying behind the party members. Equipping a dagger and Grimoire allows the War Mage to switch to an Assassin-type play-style.
    • The Recommended Tactics button shows the 2 different play-style the highlighted hero can utilize. Players can choose whether to have a co-op focused build or solo build.
  • Character Customization
    • There are multiple character preset options that players can choose from. Players can also fully customize the character’s face, hair, skin color, and tattoos. Be mindful that any character customization is permanent once the character is created.

Exploration

  • Interface
    • Pressing the F10 opens the Main Menu. Players can access all basic functions of the game without having to memorize all the shortcut keys for each specific menu.
    • The Character’s Combat Power is shown on the top-left corner of the screen, along with the Character Level and Equipped Pets.
    • The Legend Shop can also be accessed on the top left corner of the screen

Maps and Quests

Inventory

  • The Inventory can be accessed by pressing the I key. 3 Inventory tabs with 32 slots each are available from the beginning of the game. Having a total of 4 inventory tabs require the Gold Service and 5 inventory tabs are activated when purchasing a Platinum Service
  • A separate Premium Inventory has a total of 6 tabs and does not require any Gold or Platinum Services to be maxed out and activated. Obtained Premium Items are stored in the Premium Inventory box.

Equipment

  • The equipment window shows 2 Weapon Slots, 6 Armor Slots, 3 Accessory Slots, and 2 Costume Slots.
  • Weapon and Armor items have their own durability and their durability loses when used during combat. Equipped items lose 10% of their max durability when their user is killed in combat. Armor is disabled when its durability reaches 0. Items are repairable through weapon and armor merchants (NPC).
  • Aside from their basic function, equipment items have various benefits, the higher the grade, the more they have options. Stat boost increases greatly depending on the equipment’s grade and level.
  • Armor items are graded in 8 categories; Common, Uncommon, Rare, Heroic Legendary, Ancient, Mythic, Set, and Unique. The higher-grade equipment items are more powerful as some of them have special options such as; giving you additional stats, changing your skill effects, and other additional effects.

Combat

  • Skills:
    • Skills can be assigned to a specific key. Pressing the skill hotkey will let players target their skills. Some skills have a wide area of effect (AOE), some are buffs, and some are targeted skills.
  • Each character in the game has access to different skills. They are divided into two groups:
    • Class skills: in this category there are skills that can be used with any weapon. Here there is also the greatest diversity in how the skills work – they can be used for damage dealing, supporting allies and other characters or to temporarily increase mobility.
    • Expert skills: these skills are related to the type of weapon used by the character. In this group there are 9 skills. The character must have a specific weapon type to use specific skills.
  • Status Effects:
    • In addition to damage, attacks can cause various status effects that can reduce the capabilities of the target. Statuses usually last for a few seconds, but they can greatly impact each battle. Currently there are 16 effects in the game:
      • Fear – Causes the player to lose control of the character. The character will be wandering aimlessly until the effect ends.
      • Stun – Immobilizes the character and makes him or her unable to perform any actions.
      • Taunt – Forces the target to attack a character that used this effect.
      • Slow – Reduces movement speed of the target.
      • Ignite – The target is set on fire. Similarly to the fear effect, it is unable to control it and it will run away from the attacker.
      • Mutation – The target is transformed and becomes unable to use skills and attacks.
      • Freeze – A character becomes frozen and immobilized. No actions can be performed in this state.
      • Petrify – Similar effect with Freeze.
      • Blind – Blinds the target. A blinded target cannot hit anyone.
      • Airborne – Throws the target into the air. Such target cannot perform any actions.
      • Poison – Poisons the target and deals damage over time.
      • Bleeding – Similar effect with Poison.
      • Burn – Similar effect with Poison and Bleed.
      • Silence – Makes it impossible for the target to perform regular attacks and use skills.
      • Stat reduction – Temporary reduces character stats like attack, defense, attack speed, and other skills.
      • Ensnare – It keeps the target in one place, unable to move. The target can still attack and use abilities.

Convenience Functions

MU Legend features a number of convenience functions that enhance the game’s QoL (quality of life) from a player’s perspective. These features make tedious tasks easier and more manageable as the player focuses on quests and character progression.

  • Auto Battle
    • You can set your character to auto attack monsters on the screen by clicking and enabling the sword icon on the upper right of your skill bar near the mana gauge.
  • Auto Movement
    • Right clicking on their desired location on the map allows players to auto-move to their destination. During the auto movement, palyers can perform other activities such as modify skills, change equipment, or speak with guild/party members.
  • Emergency Exit
    • Enable the character to teleport to the map entrance.Emergency Exit is useful for getting out of inaccessible locations and situations. This feature can be accessed openining the game menu by clicking on the Esc button.
  • Automatic Item Gathering
    • Pressing the F key activates the loot feature. While it does not allow players to automatically loot everything while AFK, it is the easiest way to loot items within the player’s vicinity without having to click each individual loot. Zen and healing potions are automatically looted, even without pressing the F key.
  • The Spacebar
    • Interacting with NPC’s in the crowded cities of the Continent may become difficult at times, especially when there are a lot of players logged in at the same time, blocking the access to the NPC. Pressing Spacebar will let players interact with an NPC within their vicinity.
    • The Spacebar also acts as the Confirm key within the game. Players can also interact with the surroundings using Spacebar.
  • Town Portal Stone
    • The Town Portal Stone will teleport the player to the cities that the player already visited. For added convenience, the Town Portal Stone does not have any cooldown.

Community Features

  • Chat
    • You can use the Chat Window to communicate with other players in different chat modes. Press Tab in the input panel to change your chat mode. Each chat tab contains messages in the corresponding mode. You can also customize your chat tabs to filter specific message types. You can even chat even if your character is dead.
    • One good feature is you may link the items to the chat window by left clicking the item while holding down Alt. Item links are useful for trading and comparing items with others.
    • You can customize your Chat Tabs to see the messages that you only want to display. All Chat tabs can be reconfigured.
  • Friends
    • You can add friends by using the Community feature, press “L” on your keyboard to open your “Community Window” and enter the character names you want to add on your Friends List. 
    • When you add a friend, a message is sent to the character to notify them of the friend request. Once added, you can access their character menu anytime and perform actions such as; whisper, invite to party, inspect character info, and other details. 
    • You can also check your friend’s locations in the community window in real-time. The Friend List cannot be shared among game accounts.
  • Guilds
    • Guilds, also known as clans, kinships or crews, are usually groups of people who are working toward a common goal in a game. Together, they hunt monsters, compete with each other, trade or simply (and foremost) make communication easier as each guild has its own chat channel. 
    • A guild master can set their guild’s “goal”. It can serve as a way of interacting with other players (Social), to level up characters, hunt monsters or to initiate combat with other players (PvP).
    • You can join a guild or create your own. To join a guild, enter the guild window by pressing “G” key (in default), check the list of available guilds and send your application. You can send up to 10 applications at the same time as you are not restricted to one application. When you are accepted to a guild, all your other applications are canceled. If your application is declined, you get a chance to apply to another one.
    • If you decide to create your own guild, visit Olson at the commercial district of Ohrdor City. During your conversation with him, you have to decide on your guild’s name (2-12 characters) and pay a fee – 5,000,000 Zen. Once the registration is finished, you can then start inviting other players.
