If you are new to Haven & Hearth, it is recommended that you read the Sevenless's Guide for Beginning Players Checking forums frequently. Especially Announcements section might be very helpful, as developers may add something possibly deadly into the game.
Improving your character
As of World 8, you only get LPs for discovering new items or by studying Curiosities
Before you start earning LP, make sure you have some spare experience. Experience is gained by random lores that appear when you do stuff. Studying all kinds of curiosities consume this at variable amounts.
Some of the easiest things to "discover" when first starting out:
- Tree products
- Clay (You can dig from the side of a river or from a clay node in a Mudflat)
- Foraged items such as Spindly Taproot or Blueberries (see Foraging for how to acquire)
- Digging for soil and worms
Note that you must discover resources before you will be able to craft with them. So for example, Leather Boots not only requires that you have the skill Tanning but also requires that you have taken a piece of Leather from a Tanning Tub. Just having a friend give you leather is not enough.
Some of the first Curiosities you might get:
--To be added--
Your Attributes (STR, AGI, INT, etc.) are increased by eating various foods. Each food provides a number of Food Event Points (FEPs) towards various stats, detailed in the FEP Table. To increase a stat, you must accumulate a number of FEPs equal to your highest stat (ignoring modifiers). By placing the cursor over the bar below the statistics on the character sheet, you can see a tooltip showing how many FEPs you currently have and how many you need. The stat that is increased is probabilistically determined by how many FEPs you have towards each stat. For example, if you only eat bear salami, then upon accumulating enough FEPs to increase a stat, you will have a 57.14% chance of strength increasing by one, and a 42.86% chance of charisma increasing by one. After a stat is increased, your current FEPs are reset to zero, so any overflow is lost (though it still affects the determination of which stat increases before the current FEPs are reset).
