    The actual Newbie Guide starts here!

    I hope it will teach you properly in everything you need to know.
    It's suggested to keep this guide up to date, to avoid misunderstandings and confusion about new additions and changes of the server.

    If you don't like this guide, you can find the old Newbie Guide here: Old Newbie Guide

    : : : Step 1: The Arrival : : :

    When arriving at the server there are some crucial things to know and do, before you can start your adventure:

    1. Create an account at the Herocraft website, using the same IGN (in game nick name) and e-mail. Then finish the e-mail confirmation process.
    2. Read the server rules at hc.to/rules.
    3. Open Minecraft, go to Multiplayer and add the server to the list: IP = play.hc.to
    4. After adding the Herocraft server to the Mutliplayer list, you are able to turn off the serverside texture pack, if you wish to. Select the server and then click on the "edit" button. Here you can disable the serverside texture pack to be able to use your own. The texture pack of the server is called "HeroConquest".
    5. Now enter the server. You will most likely spawn in the Tutorial. It will teach you a lot of the basics already.
    6. Enter /register <email> (for <email> enter the same e-mail you used when creating the Herocraft account). This command will merge the account with the server to whitelist you. It will finish the registration process. You can see if you are whitelisted by using the /book command.
    7. Finish the Tutorial, you will get to choose between 3 worlds here already: Central, PvE and PvP. Choose one of the worlds, it's recommended to either pick PvE or PvP to start your adventure directly. Read below about all playable worlds.

    : : : The Multiverse - all playable worlds explained : : :

    The Central
    The Central is the map in the middle of everything. It builds the connection to other worlds and allows players to travel between them (using the Ships at the Ship dock). Besides that, Central is also a huge social area, allowing players to trade, to set up shops and fight in the arena (you won't lose items when dying there). Heroes also exchange their Soul Shards for true money here, or exchange relics for superior ones, or special currency at the councilmen for special items. Additionally, players are able to purchase plots there, either to live in Central or just as additional storage.
    Places of interest: Ship Docks, Tutorial Portal, The Exchange (Soul Shards/Fragments exchange), Market District, Housing Areas (Slums/Commons/Nobles/Royals), The Arena, The Councilmen (Relics & Special Currency Exchange).

    The Sanctuary (PvE = Player versus Environment)
    A peaceful world, that only allows to fight against monsters.
    The classic Minecraft experience featuring additional RPG content. This is one of the general worlds of play.
    Places of interest: The Sanctuary Spawn (PvE Spawn), The Nexus (Spawn centre), Housing Areas, Ship Docks

    The Aegis Front (PvP = Player versus Player)
    A world of war and danger. Here it's possible to fight and kill players everywhere.
    When joining this world be sure that this can happen anytime.
    At the other hand you are able to kill players too, and raid villages and places in addition. This is one of the general worlds of play.
    Places of interest: The Aegis Front Spawn (PvE Spawn), The Town Center (Spawn centre), Housing Areas, Ship Docks

    The Hades (Nether)
    Hades is the name of the Nether in Herocraft. This instanced world is split up into the "PvE Nether" and the "PvP Nether", therefore both worlds have one Nether for themselves. To get to the Nether, using a Portal won't work. Only a Necromancer has the ability to teleport himself and others to the Nether. Alternatively players can buy Runestones to Nether from players, who have been there before and crafted those Runestones in the Nether. Runestones are teleportation stones, which will can be crafted by a Runesmith only. You also have to be either in the PvE or PvP world to teleport to it's Nether.

    The Event World
    A special world, accessible through Central only. Here all server-events will take place, most of them PvP events and competitions. Only certain achievements given to you from the staff will affect your character in the general worlds of play.

    The Siege World
    A test world, accessible through Central only. In this world the township plugin is tested, allowing further development in the PvP features of townships. This world is occasionally reset. Achievements in this world will not affect your character in the general worlds of play.

    The Visions World
    The general test server, accessible through Central only. This is the basic test server for players. You can check out every content of the server here. Achievements in this world will not affect your character in the general worlds of play.


    How to travel between the worlds:

    It's simple. Go to Spawn, the place where you literally spawned at after choosing a world. Go to the Ship Docks and enter the Ship there. You will land at Central, from there you can enter any other Ship, which sends you to another world!

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



    : : : Step 2: The Adventure Begins : : :

    Regardless which world you pick, you always start at "The Spawn" and generally at the Ship Docks of the world you chose. "The Spawn" is the middle of the map, always located at x: 0 z: 0 of each world. At "The Spawn" you can enter the Ship at the Ship Docks to travel to The Central map, where you are able to choose another world.
    Keep this in mind, it will be necessary to get back to Spawn later again!

    Many players ask what to do and where to go, now that they are in the actual world of play. It's very easy, just leave the Spawn. "The Spawn" is the village in the middle of the map where you "spawn" at. It's a protected, non-pvp area. Leave it to start your survival adventure.
    If you are on PvE: Follow any Road (North, South, East, West) to leave the Spawn.
    If you are on PvP: Go through the tunnel near the Ship Docks to get into the wilderness.

    Once you've left the Spawn, you will be able to play your adventure and that includes everything: Mining, Fighting, Building, Crafting, Farming - Surviving!


    Beginner Class & Profession:

    Your beginner class will be: Lost Soul
    And your beginner profession will be: Crafter
    At the beginning you are not able to craft armors and weapons & tools only to a certain limit (up to iron only). You can buy what you need from players later of course, but armor is not that necessary at the beginning.


    The Stats:

    Food allows you to regenerate health. The edible food is the same like in vanilla, except for rotten flesh which is edible here too and does not poison you, unlike in vanilla. Hunger doesn't exist in Herocraft, ergo the Hunger symbols represent your Stamina (necessary to unleash physical abilities) and not your Hunger!
    Your Mana bar (used for magical abilities) is at the top of the screen below your HP (Hit/Healthpoint) and your Class/Profession lvl info.


    The Attributes:

    Each class has their own attributes to start with. It's up to you alone in which direction you want to go, however. You can allocate the attribute points, which you receive everytime you level up with your class, by using /attributes or /attribute add <attribute> <amount>. For further information about attributes and other hero data, use /book.


    Spawn Teleportation Info:

    At the beginning it's recommended to stay Crafter for a longer time, because only the Crafter profession allows you to teleport to Spawn for free, with: /skill warp (or /spawn)! As soon as you change your profession you will lose this ability and have to find a new way to teleport yourself to Spawn, or you go there by foot. You can either buy a port from players in trade chat then, or you get yourself a Runestone that allows you to teleport close to Spawn! When you choose to become a Wizard or Druid, however, you will be able to port yourself to Spawn at lvl 25.


    The Chat Channels:

    There are different chat channels. Some are private for towns or groups of players, but the most are public chat channels.

    Here a list of the most important chat channels for the regular player, with the shortcut behind it:
    • OutOfCharacter Channel (General Chat) - /o
    • HelpMe Channel (Help Chat) - /h
    • Tour Channel (Newbie Chat) - /tour
    • Trade Channel (Trade Chat) - /t
    • Shout Channel (Shout Chat) - /shout
    • Local Channel (Local Chat) - /l
    • Recruitment Channel (Recruit Chat) - /re

    To focus on a chat channel enter /ch before the channel shortcut like this: /ch tour (this will focus all messages on Newbie Chat and allows you to chat there without putting the channel shortcut in front of the message and just by pressing Enter).
    To join a chat channel enter: /join <channel> , example: /join HelpMe (to join Help Chat)
    To leave a chat channel enter: /leave <channel> , example: /leave Trade (to leave Trade Chat)
    To get a list of all available chat channels enter: /ch list <page>

    Note: When you leave a chat channel you won't be able to read messages from that channel until you join it again. Also note: The channel list shows you ALL chat channels from players and for players, that includes all public and private ones like chat channels for a Township.

    To send players a private message enter: /w <player> <message> or enter @<player> <message>
    To quickly reply to the last person you have written with or received a message from enter: /r <message>



    Step 3 will teach you the important actions at the beginning and how to get started!



    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



    : : : Step 3: Getting Started : : :

    At the beginning of your adventure it's important to find a secure place for your first settlement. Depending on your future plans, you either stay close to Spawn or already head far out into the world. The further you are out, the more secure will your place be from unwanted intruders and you will have more space and materials just for you. But the further you go into the world, the stronger monsters will become in addition. Your first challenge is to make the right decision here. It is recommended to head far into the world, but if you think you could not take this challenge, you can of course stay close to Spawn too.

    Regardless your decision, it is the same for everyone at the beginning: Get materials and build your first base. It's not necessary to look good, just make sure you have a connection to: a forest, the underground (best an untouched place) to create a mining system and any source of water.


    Steps to get started as a beginner:

    1. Choose your class of choice with /hero choose <class> (for <class> enter the class' name). Only the first class transfer from Lost Soul to your class of choice will be for free. Later this will come with a cost.
    2. Decide whether to stay close to Spawn or to travel far out (both has advantages and disadvantages)
    3. Get materials: wood and stone. Then set up a base close to a water source, or at the ocean.
    4. Get food by killing monsters (rotten flesh is food too), farming or hunting. (When farming from fields you don't own, always replant, else it's griefing)
    5. Hide your chests at a good place, best underground, where raiders don't immediately find them!
    6. Bind yourself to your home with /skill mark (will cost 1 Iron Ingot), so you can teleport back to it anytime and from any place with /skill recall (costs 10 Redstone).
    7. Whenever you die, use /tomblist to get the coordinates of your Death Chest (if you dropped one). Else use the maps to navigate through the world: PvE map = hc.to/sanctuary , PvP map = hc.to/aegis.
    8. Advance to higher levels, of your class and profession, while surviving!
    9. Master the Crafter profession at lvl 20 to allow choosing a new profession! There are 2 ways to choose another profession then and it's the same for choosing other classes later in the game. This feature will be explained below.

    How to level up properly:

    You lvl up your class by killing monsters.
    You lvl up your profession by crafting, mining, farming, fishing etc.
    There is only an exception for certain professions. Not all professions receive exp on the same way.
    To check them all out, click on this wiki reference: List of all Classes & Professions

    To lvl up your class quickly, you best go to a swamp near PvE Spawn. Monsters give good exp there and since it's a swamp biome, they also spawn faster than regularly.
    Monsters only spawn during night time or at very dark places like underground (mines).


    Skills & Abilities in Herocraft:

    All classes & professions have their own abilities. Some share like 1 - 3 abilities, especially in the lower levels, but generally every class & profession has a unique skill tree.
    To see the list of skills available for a class or profession in game, enter this command: /skills <class/profession> <page#>
    Example for the skill list of a Ninja: /skills Ninja (shows page 1 of the Ninja skills, for page 2 enter /skills Ninja 2 , and so on.)
    Example for the skill list of a Smith: /skills Smith (same way like above)
    On this way you can find out what skills you have and will have at later levels! Keep in mind, skills that you can use are marked with green text in the list in chat. Alternatively compare your levels with the level requirements or check out all skills at the wiki at: Wiki list of Classes & Professions.
    There are passive and active skills. Passive skills are always in effect no matter where you are or what you do, like the skill "Potion", it allows you to drink potions! Active skills are the only skills that you can use interactively.


    There are 3 ways of how to use skills in Herocraft:

    • You can use skills with the command /skill <skillname>. Example: /skill Fireball. Keep in mind, for the most skill you must 1. Have a target, or/and 2. be in range of the target (logically for close-combat skills).
    • You can bind skills on any item and object that you have in the inventory, and that you can hold. While holding the item, enter /bind <skillname> into chat. Example: /bind Fireball , while holding an Iron Hoe. The skill Fireball will be bound to ALL Iron Hoes until you unbind the skill from the item with /unbind. To use a skill after it's been bound to the item, just right click! Keep in mind, that a skill will always be bound to all items of the same kind, you don't need to rebind them to another Iron Hoe (for example) later!
    • Third way would be using a mod that allows you to create macros or keybinds. The only mod allowed on this server is Macromod. You find instructions of how to install this mod at the Herocraft modpack site, here: Herocraft Modpack.

    : : : Choosing a new Class & Profession - How it works! : : :
    In general there are always 2 ways you can go:
    • Use the commands to choose a new class / profession
    • or use a Codex to spec to the class or profession that the Codex offers you
    You should always master a class / profession before changing to a new one. This is the most efficient way, here why:
    • There's a chance to get different amounts of Souls with every level up.
    • If you choose a new profession before mastering Crafter by using a codex, you won't be able to use the command to choose another profession later on and you will be stuck in using codices for that process only. This is only important when you start here as Crafter, because it will change the process for all the professions later on.
    • Everytime you master a class / profession you will receive 1x Diamond and the title of the class / profession to wear in front of your name in chat.
    • Switching between classes costs money and should therefore be avoided if possible. Try to choose what you really like and want to play and stick to it as long as possible.

    To choose a new class with the command enter: /hero choose <class>
    To choose a new profession with the command enter: /hero profession <profession>
    It will always cost 400 Souls to do that, except for the first class transfer from LostSoul, this one will be for free.

    Alternatively, the recommended way, you can use a Codex to switch to the class / profession desired (do not do that when you are LostSoul and want to choose a new class, just use the command then). A Codex is a book that allows you a "free" transfer. This book consists of 5 relics (you need 5 relics of one kind to create a codex). If you have acquired all 5 relics for i. e. the Codex of Blood (Bloodmage codex) then just go to a workbench and put all the relics in there to craft the codex!


    But what possibilites does one have to acquire a codex? Here all the ways explained:

    • Hardest but cheapest way: Find all the relics on your own (relic I - V). You find relics for a class codex by killing monsters, profession relics from mining, farming and fishing.
    • Easier but the more expensive way: Find some of the relics required to craft the Codex and buy the rest that you didn't find after a thorough search from players in trade chat.
    • The easiest but most expensive way: Buy the complete Codex from a player in trade chat.


    Average prices for relics and codices on the player-market:
    For a class codex:
    250-350s
    For a profession codex: 180s-300s
    For a V relic: 100-250s
    For a IV relic: 30-60s
    For a III relic: 10-20s
    For a II relic: 5-10s
    For a I relic: 0-5s

    : : : Step 4: Trading Agreements & Money : : :
    Once you've built a base and got yourself some tools and food to survive, the big question of how to get rich is yet to be answered.
    The main currency of Herocraft is Soul (Souls). It's used to make all trades with players and buy regular items and components from player shops. There are many ways to acquire them, but after all a combination of all ways is the fastest and most efficient way to get to money!


    Here all the ways to acquire Souls:

    • Acquire Soul Shards/Fragments or a Soul of a great Hero from mining and killing monsters. These shards can be exchanged for Souls at The Exchange in Central.
    • Trade goods and services with players in trade chat. The more common an item is, the lower is the demand of course. Examples of items people are most likely not going to buy: Wheat, Sugar Cane, Food, Stone, Wood, Lower Tier Armors/Weapons.
    • Sell items to player shops (Chest Shops) that offer a lot of Souls in exchange.
    • Level up your classes and professions, you have a small chance to get various amounts of Souls from that.
    Check your balance with this command: /money
    Pay players / send money to players with: /money pay <player> <amount>


    Values of Soul Shards / Fragments at The Exchange:


    Tiny Soul Shard = 1 Soul each
    Small Soul Shard = 3 Souls each
    Small Soul Fragment = 9 Souls each
    Large Soul Fragment = 15 Souls each
    Soul of A Great Hero = 250 Souls each


    How to get to The Exchange at Central:

    First of all, you have to go to the Central map of course. It has been mentioned before already how to move to other worlds, that includes the Central map too. As soon as you get to Central, go to the Exchange located at x: 0 z: 20 by foot, or use the portal with the beacon near the ship docks there.


    Here how to trade in Herocraft with other players, step by step:

    • Enter the trade chat with /ch t (you will focus on trade chat with that) or just with /t <message>.
    • Tell the people what you want. Buy, Sell or Trade. The shortcuts for that are: WTB = Want To Buy, WTS = Want To Sell and WTT = Want To Trade - followed by the item name and price you want to negotiate with.
    • Once both players have an agreement, the player selling must ask the player who's buying for a "trade confirmation". Here an example: Player 1: "Selling a Necromancer codex to Player 2 for 290s, confirm?" - Player 2: confirmed. Only then the trade is legitimate and if a player scams you, you can provide a screenshot to a staff member and get him banned (scam is not allowed in trade chat).
    • Once both sides confirmed the trade, it's suggested to find a safe place to trade the items. The Trade Booth in Central is the recommended place for that. It's located inside that big house in front of the ship docks at Central.
    • If you buy items from someone, pay the player with /money pay <player> <amount> after receiving the items.

    • If you are not sure about prices, trade chat is the place to ask for prices as well!
    • Put /showitem (while holding the item) at the beginning of the chat (only works in the focused chat channel) to link an item. You can write any message afterwards too!

    It's suggested not to waste Souls once you get them.
    You should set priorities for yourself what's truly important for you to spend money for!

    : : : Step 5: Unity of Heroes : : :

    The time will come you feel lonely and want to play with others, or join other groups, communities or teams to play with.

    There are basically 3 ways you can go to play with other people here:

    • Ask in general chat /o if anyone wants to team up with you. Just so, without a bigger deal. Most of the time people do that just to lvl up together.
    • Group up with players and create a community with rules. Build up a village together where everyone is bound to rules and has his own house too.
    • Join or create a Township. A Township is a large protected area, in which only members of the Township can break blocks and open doors, chests, etc. Another name for this kind of area is "super region". You can join a Township by asking in recruitment chat /re or apply to a town in the forums at: hc.to/towns (recommended).

    Open this link to find out the requirements of a township and how to create a town: Townships 3.0

    To create a party enter: /party invite <player>
    The player receiving the offer has to confirm the invitation.
    Once the party is created, you can focus on party chat with: /party

    : : : Step 6: Advanced Protection Techniques : : :
    The time will come you've gathered enough experience to no longer call yourself a newbie.
    All the steps before this one are essential to "have in mind" for the upcoming things.

    Ever asked yourself how to protect your items permanently from being taken or destroyed? There is a way, and you don't need to join a Township to have this kind of protection!

    The solution: Personal Regions
    A great feature that allows you to cover areas with a logical protection, an area that protects everything inside from people without permission to break blocks or use chests - that's what a personal region is. Basically a small type of Township, but in a smaller size and a way cheaper to afford.

    How to create a region? There is already a guide for that, check it out: Herocraft Personal Region Guide

    Different Worlds, Different Regions, Different Effects:

    Do you have your main settlement on PvE or PvP? That is an important question, because believe it or not, there are differences between a personal region on the PvP and on the PvE world!

    When you play on the PvE world, you will have a normal region, without any natural disadvantages. But when you want to create one on the PvP world, you should know about the following things:
    • On PvP, the use flag is toggled for all regions to "true". This allows EVERYONE to open doors, chests, trapdoors, use levers and any other kind of interactive object. Why? On PvP regions and towns are supposed to be raidable.
    • You can put any block on top of your chest in your PvP personal region to avoid the chest being raided. Intruders are able to open everything but not able to break blocks!
    Protecting Home with Traps, cheap but surprisingly effective!

    If you have a hand for lethal traps and creative murder rooms, feel free to create them! Please keep in mind though: It's only allowed to place traps inside structures that you own.

    : : : Summary of Tips & Tricks : : :


    Here a big list of random tips & tricks that help you survive and become a great hero!

    Lost? Check out the PvE Dymap: hc.to/sanctuary or the PvP Dymap: hc.to/aegis

    Forgot a command? Find a list of ALL available commands here: hc.to/commands

    You find information about everything regarding Herocraft at the Herocraft wiki: hc.to/wiki

    Leveling up gives you money too! Consider mastering LostSoul and Crafter before you spec to a new class/profession

    Looking for food? Rotten flesh doesn't poison you! Kill 1 Zombie and you have food to heal yourself again

    Found some fields? Keep in mind that you are allowed to farm them as long as you replant the fields you don't own. The same goes for tree farms!

    Crafters have the /spawn (/skill warp) ability, which allows to port back to Spawn for free. Other professions don't have that skill!

    Want to be able to teleport yourself or others? Wizards & Druids can port themselves and everyone in the party and in range to preset locations. Wizards can teleport everyone in a group to them. Beguilers can port themselves to other members in a party!

    If you don't have enough money to afford a personal region or LWC chests, hide your chests far underground, where nobody expects it to be!

    Bind your skills to items and weapons that you have and use with /bind <skill> , then right click to launch the ability! Unbind with /unbind

    Check out the skills of a class or profession with /skills <class/profession> <page> . You can do that for any class/profession!

    Consider using a Codex to change to another class/profession. It's always cheaper than the command!

    Need armor? You can buy it cheap from other players via trade chat, or kill cows to get leather and craft a leather armor. Only Smiths can craft Iron armor or better!

    Want to teleport to Nether without being a Necromancer? Buy a Runestone to Nether!

    Check your balance regularly with: /money

    You can send money to players or pay players when trading with: /money pay <player> <amount>

    You can bind yourself to a location with /skill mark - requires 1 Iron Ingot. You can teleport back to it with /skill recall - requires 10 Redstone

    Create a party with /party invite <player> and chat in party chat with /party

    When you died and dropped a Death Chest, use /tomblist to get it's coordinates!

    The Exchange to exchange your soul shards etc. for Souls is located at Central. The portal with the beacon near the docks ports you to the place instantly!

    Got a question? Ask in help chat /ch h or newbie chat /ch tour ! Alternatively you can ask in the forums, General section too!

    Check your hero data with /book !

    Allocate attribute points after lvling up with the /attributes UI or /attribute add <attribute> <amount> !

    Watch out not to mix-up Coal with Small Soul Shards! Both share the same symbol! So do other Soul Shards/Fragments!

    You will keep the levels of all classes & professions you've played, regardless how often you change them!

    Try travelling between the worlds sometimes! Go to the Spawn of your world at x:0 z:0 (or use a teleportation skill if you have one or buy a port in trade chat) and enter the Ship at the Ship Docks there to get to Central. From there you can then travel with another Ship to any world you like!

    Don't forget to vote! It's an awesome way to get additional Souls and EXP for both, class & profession and also helps the Server!

    You can send private messages to online players with: /w <player> <message> and reply quickly with /r <message>
