Character Interface

Understanding the User Interface is crucial for your gaming experiance.
This will provide you with vital information.
1. Character Level: Below your class icon you will notice your character level.
2. Health and Mana Bars: These two bars indicate a player's overall health and mana status. Using skills drains mana, and taking damage drains health. If they drop too low, you'll be in danger of dying, so be sure to keep an eye on them!
3. RP Bar: This system grants players RP when they defeat monsters. There are certain skills in Dragon Knights that can only be actived with RP instead of mana. So stock up and prepare to unleash your rage on your enemies.
4. PvP Status: The Icon with the 2 swords will tell you your current PvP stance. When the swords are parallel to each other you are not in PvP mode. This means that while you are traveling in safe zones players will be unable to attack you. If you click on the swords they will cross, automatically putting you in PvP mode. You will then be allowed to attack other players and they may attack you.
5. Buffs: Buffs will be located to the right of the health and mana bar. If the buff has a timer, the count down will be displayed on the icon itself.

Target Interface

Name: The color of a target's name shows their disposition toward the player. Red indicates an aggressive character or monster, yellow a neutral character, and green a friendly one.
Distance It's always important to know how far your foe or friend is from your character.

Minimap Interface
