The first thing you should know about trading in Hero of Aethric is that there is no direct trading with a particular player or auction house system that uses a base currency like gold or orns. i.e. you can't sit in Loton Grand Exchange offering a million orns for an Ornate Mimic King Head.
Trading unlocks at Tier 4, that is character lvl 75, and that gives you the ability to build a Trading Post in your Origin Town.
It costs 500k gold, 15 wood, 15 stone, 5 runestone
You can upgrade it with gold to increase the amount of trading slots.
"allows you to put up items for occasional trade" - basically there's an imaginery merchant trading caravan going around every player's origin town, picking up items from one player and dropping them off in place of another player's item...
How to get gauntlet keys as a new character in Aethric?
There are a number of dungeons located around the world of Aethric that require at least 1 Gauntlet Key to enter. Some options like Boss Mode or Hard Mode require more keys, and higher tier dungeons also require more than 1 key. The tier 10 Valley of the Gods dungeon requires 20 keys to enter it normally solo!
In the Aethric main story questline at tier 3 Seeker Mara asks you to complete a gauntlet (gauntlet = dungeon in terminology). Dungeons are essentially a series of monster or boss fights back to back for a set number of floors, depending on your tier. Each mob starts fresh at 100% HP on each floor, whereas your HP and mana levels do not get refreshed, you'll need to consider bringing a few large health potions here! It's common to fail your first few dungeons in the beginning, as players normally don't have decent gear to withstand the constant barrage of damage from a series of monsters, so farming more gauntlet keys is always worth it!
"How to find stone in Hero of Aethric?" is one of the most commonly asked questions from new players entering the world of Aethric for the first time, and its valid because we need the stone to construct buildings in the Origin Town to continue the main questline. However it's no secret that there's a distinct lack of stone material around Aethric in the early game, especially compared to aa material like wood which is much more abundant as there's plenty of items and gear that can be dismantled into wood that's dropped from plenty of monsters in the first few areas of the game.
Here are the three main ways to get more stone in Aethric in the early game:
Intro to Aethric's Class Sytem
Hero of Aethric offers many classes to unlock and play as you level up through the game, which can be freely switched between once unlocked. Additionally, there are specialisations that act like sub-classes, allowing you to mix and match class and specialisation to tailor your own unique playstyle. Whether you want to be duel-wielding staff mage, a warrior with hundreds of thousands of extra hitpoints in the form of ward, or a thief that sacrifices defense for ungodly high attack, the simple yet deep class and specialisation system in Aethric has you covered. The classic warrior, mage, and rogue archetypes become more nuanced as you progress through the game, and before long you can even build your character around pets or summoned beasts that can deal devastating damage. The options are endless and allow you to customise your playstyle to your heart's desire.
Welcome to the guide on the Unfelled questline! The main Hero of Aethric story questline is the same as Orna, however this guide has adjusted the strategies to cater specifically for Aethric. Finding lower tier monsters and bosses can be a pain, so here’s a neat little guide to help! Most quests will be split into two sections - new and experienced. If you’re a new player, look at the new section. If you’re returning or have ignored the story quest until later, and are something like Tier 9 or Tier 10, look at the experienced section for more options to complete each quest. Use the outline of this document to jump between quests quickly.
Also note, all of these will be spoilers for the questline. Read these line-by-line if you’d like to avoid being spoiled, or, I dunno, don’t read this.
Note from Shabbash: Huge thank you to Konq for writing up this legendary questing guide and also for permission to upload to this site. I have also adjusted this for Aethric where possible. Video walkthroughs for each tier in Aethric at the bottom of this guide.
A nice new tip for Aethric - if you're wondering where to receive the next quest from check your world map, NPCs with a quest for you will show up!
