Gladiat's Basic Rusty Hearts Guide
Incomplete topics with headings are works in progress

Please post your feedback and/or corrections if you see any incorrect information. Thanks!

This guide is just a basic outline that only applies to Closed Beta at the moment. All information here is basic combat information on the game and will not cover anything above level 20 (Until level limit is raised) or class specific.

Let me know if there's something that a guide should be made on (general combat feature of the game) and I might just make it :U

Poison Roulette

Poison's Roulette gauge builds up whenever an attack the party make deals damage that ends in the number "7".

The gauge will appear under the minimap on an icon of Poison's face, and when the icon is complete the roulette will roll at the top of the screen. Each character's portrait will present each person in the party with the same buff as everyone shares the same gauge. The portraits are all of characters in Rusty Hearts that you will eventually meet at one point or another in the story.

Poison - +1 Gold Card
Betty - Recover 30% HP and MP
Pamela - 1 Bonus Random Reward Card
Pierre - Recover 30% MP
Gina - Recover all HP and MP
Gorgon - Damage +100% for 30 seconds
Joheim - Increase Critical Rate by 50% for 1 minute
Deathly - Unknown
Chick - Nothing

I think a general gameplay guide would be helpful. There's still people who don't know how to link items to chat or trade 1 item instead of the entire stack.

If this isn't class-specific, it's going to be huge. We need a wiki for this.

ggFTW doesn't have a wiki for Rusty Hearts, which is why I'm making "guides" for the ingame features.

I'll ask the other staff if they'd consider adding in a Rusty Hearts wiki though.

Good luck.

Hopefully they'll make a Wiki soon.

Ahrim, ggFTW has a Rusty Hearts wiki.
