About the items

Items are categorized into five main groups: Meso, equipment, use, etc., and pet (along with cash items). Items can be picked up using the "Z" button.

Meso The currency used in RevivalStory. Mesos can be acquired through hunting monsters or selling drops from monsters at various stores.

Equipment items Items that the character can put on. Items that fall under equipment are hats, weapons, accessories, earrings, tops, bottoms, gloves, shoes, etc. The ability to equip an item is based on its job, skill points and level requirements.

Use items Items which are needed to recover HP or MP in the game. Town Scrolls that allow the character to return to the corresponding town are also classified as "use' items.

Etc. items Items which are dropped by monsters. They can be sold at stores for Mesos. Some are also required items for quests. Minerals and jewels also are considered as Etc. items

Cash items Avatar items that modify the appearance of the character. Click on the Cash Shop button at the bottom-right corner to enter the Cash Shop. These items are NOT FREE. Cash items are usually an equipment item that the character can put on, but there are also items that allow the character to change its hairstyle, skin color, or hair color.

About skills

The general summary of Skill System Excluding Beginners, the other four jobs (Warriors, Magicians, Bowmen, and Thieves) have their own, unique skills. As the character makes advancements, numerous skill slots will be available. The skills won't be available for use just by obtaining the skill book, but rather, the skills will be obtained through using SP's earned after every level up.

Types of Skill Skills are divided into two different categories: active and passive.

  • Passive Skill: Works without really doing anything special
  • Active: Uses up MP to perform the skill; works for a set period of time.

About quests

The requirements for a quest can vary, but usually involves level, fame, job, and/or items. Through the quest, the character can gain items, EXP and other rewards that directly affect your character.

There are two types of quests: one-time quests and repeatable quests. A one-time quest can only be completed once, and then it's over. Repeatable quests can be done again even after completing it the first time. You can access quest names, quest in progress, ended quest, and quest info from the "Quest" menu (HotKey: Q).
