Beginning Tips
.
* Doubbletap back or sidestep to jump out of the way.
* Always avoid the red circles of enemy influence. Leap out of them at all times.
* Attack while running in a circle around your enemy, so they can't easily lock onto you.
* Sometimes you can attack powerfully from a safe cliff, but usually it won't do much.
* Crafting is optional, although a great way to get rid of rare items you'll otherwise have to disassemble or delete.
* Deposit materials before selling off junk at a merchant.
* You have two weapon profiles, one for short range (like swords) and one for long range projectiles (like guns).
* Join the most intimate, lively guild you can, to ask what their advice is. Be nice to them.
