Default Tips and Tricks

Literally all the written instructions will only help you understand why. What NEDM said is best.

How do I take the least amount of damage possible, while dealing the most damage? You want to optimize everything. I'll give you some tips:

1. Melee does more damage than range. Range when they are running away or far out of reach.

2. Do not hold block. Your block meter will drain. Your block meter will break on the 3rd hit. stunning you. Successfully hit someone to regain 1/3rd of your block meter. Attacking someone's block will decrease movement speed and attack speed. Someone attacking your block will increase your attack speed.

3. You can chain your combos with special attacks. The best way to deal damage is with a Savage (swordsman). Do a full combo (3 swings) then after your third swing connects, use your 5 ability (DO NOT SCROLL. EVER.). Using 4 is just as good.

4. Attacking the enemy's back, or while they are ranging deals ~15% more damage. Each swing does more damage. Your first swing does the least, while your final swing does massive amounts of damage. Find a way to combine all the techniques to maximize your damage.

5. I highly suggest Wiwi's mod. Master pack if you have a good PC. If not, just get everything except Alt-Info. You want Alt-Info lite. There are other mods/fixes as well that are suggested. There's a list somewhere in the modding section.

6. Please don't use jump attacks. They waste your stamina and are easy to block.

7. Stay near your officer. Being within the aura of an officer (or being an officer) grants you +10% regeneration to health, mana, and stamina. Very crucial in the early stages of the game, as you do not have much stamina!

8. Always look on your map for a chance to spawn at your officer's portal. You can only spawn at YOUR officer's portal. A quick way to ask for a portal is to press v25, which will let your officer know that you are ready to spawn at a portal.

9. Portals and gadgets (sentry bats, electric eyes, demo charges, mana fountains, ammo depots, poisonous venus) give high amounts of gold and experience. Kill as many as possible.

10. Recommended items in order: 1 Major Health Potion (at all times). Lungs of Maliken, Heart of Maliken, and optional item. Your optional item can be +3 armor, healing trinket, or power of absorption.

11. Recommended stats in order: 4 agility, 4 endurance, 4 strength, 4 intel, 6 end 5 str, 10 end, 10 str, 15 str, 12 end, 5 agi.

12. Press B to donate whenever you have more than 950g, and once you get all your items, constantly donate. Your commander and your team will love you. If you have Wiwi's mod you can just use your Num Pad to donate as well.

That pretty much wraps up the features you would or wouldn't know. If you have more or other or more advanced questions feel free to private message me here or on our Facebook for Savage 2 --- CLICK ME HERE --- Log in with your Savage 2 information.

The rest is up for you to learn and make a reflex. I'll be glad to help with your fighting style. There's a group on PS2 for Basic Training. Join that.

Jump attacks can be very useful at times.
Like when you need to survive long enough to explode as a Shape Shifter.

Stats are personal preference and largely depend on ones playstyle, unit, and skill.
There is no "recommended" set for all roles. A label would be good.

Any mention or further analysis on this is opening a massive can of worms that's not needed.

Just had another look.
If he's really aiming at noobs, why does he have Heart and lungs of maliken in the item list?

@Xigbar: You're an *******. Not an insult. Rather, a valid description.
Gj on the effort though.
