Being the main means of gaining experience, killing monsters (A.K.A mobs or NPCs) is one of the most important aspects of playing MUDs. To succeed in doing so and remaining alive, one must know several things:
A) Before starting to fight monsters, one should first set his wimpy percent. If wimpy is not set, you could easily find yourself dead, even to a monster much weaker than you, after several fights. B) Always consider your opponents before attacking. After all, knowledge is power. C) Many objects in the MUD can be of great help in fighting mobs. Such objects may range from weapons and armour, to food, and to many other various items which can be obtained in various ways and places. D) If you've already joined a guild, you should make sure you know your guild's gskills, weaknesses and advantages, before you start fighting.
