ZENONIA S: Rifts in Time - Quick Walkthrough and Strategy Guide For Beginners

Her's a quick walkthrough and strategy guide for the Acton RPG game ZENONIA S: Rifts in Time. Follow the guide below and watch out for notification icons in-game, it needs your attention.
- Choosing a Character  -

Pick a character that suits your play style. For beginners, the Slasher or Fighter is highly recommended because it's easier to control than the range type ones, and with better survivability too.

General Stat Builds

Pure Builds
   - Just pump all Stat Points to their respective Primary Stats.
   - Note that every character has their own unique stats growth per Stat, and increasing their Primary Stat will definitely increase their Attack with good numbers. Yep!, even a Fighter who is a tank will get a nice ATK+ per Stamina!

Hybrid Builds
   - 2 Primary Stat and 1 to Any Stat you like, most likely to Stamina, to increase survivability.
   - Since Fighters already have Stamina as their Primary, they can go for +1 DEX.
   - Note: These are not the only way to build a hybrid character.

Skill Building Guide
   - You'll get 1 Skill Point per Lvl, and +5 every after Awakening.
   - Do not use all Skill Points every after Lvl up. Save them for later for maxing your main skills after using the [Awakening] feature. Awakening increases the Lvl caps of your skills to +3.
   - For Passive Skills, I highly recommend the increase [Attack+%] and [Defense+%] because they yield great bonuses at higher levels.

Requests and Add Friend
   - Note: Play the game with a HIVE Account (or link your Facebook account) to be able to invite/accept friends in-game, this feature is not available for Guest Accounts.

   - Check for Friends Requests and accept them to assist you in your dungeon runs (Fairy Tower), friend related missions, and Friend Points collection.

   - Add all active players you can find or need. Add via the [Add Friend] feature, or just go to town, then click on players' characters to open the Friend Request window, add them if you want.
   - Add players that are around your Lvl for a higher chance to get accepted, but still try to add high level players.

Add Players According To Your Needs (Fairy Tower)
   - Example: If your character can't take damages well, better add friends or players using Fighters or Slashers, they will help you tank mobs and bosses.
   - If your character is a tank, and you want to quickly finish things up, add players using high DPS characters like Magicians, Assassins, and Rangers (Fighters or Slashers are still ok though).

Unfriending Friends/Players!
   - Under Friends List, check and unfriend players that are inactive for a very long time and way below your level, this will clear up some space so that you can add more players to help you in your Dungeon Runs (Fairy Tower).

Invite Friend (For HIVE Accounts Only)

The Mailbox!
   - This is where you can get all claimed freebies.
   - You can hold on to your items for maximum of 3 Days, after that they will disappear, so be careful.

Why Hold on to Your Mailbox Items?
   - Well, some very active players do this:
   - In order to maximize their rewards, they will only redeem Coupon items (Grade B or higher: Gears, Accessories, and Gem Coupons) that are about to expire, this way, they can get better quality of items.

   - Note that items redeemed is based from your character's current Lvl, this is a good idea especially early game.
   - Optional for non-active players.
