FROSTBURN BEGINNER’S GUIDE
This is the official Pw Frostburn guide for beginners. If you are having a hard time finding what to do, how to level, or how everything works in general, you have come to the right place.
I will try to get this guide to be as concise and useful as possible, so you don’t need to read a thousand pages and can jump straight into the game.
Without further ado, let’s begin!
Some very important and basic resources that every player should know and use to get quick answers:
Link: As its name implies, it is the most complete database for almost everything in Perfect World. You can look for quests, items, mobs, bosses, locations, etc.
Link: A simple table where you can quickly look for every drop from every boss in Twilight Temple.
Link: A very similar site to PwWiki (which usually doesn’t work well). You can find lots of guides and general information about the game, classes, caves, etc.
Link: An extremely complete calculator for characters builds. You can simulate different builds, or try different gears, weapons, etc.
Starting up you will be spawned in the Celestial Vale.
Don’t worry, you won’t be here long.
Lets get started!
Voting not only helps the Server get noticed, it also helps you out!
Before you create your new Character, Head to our Webpage and Vote using the Userpanel.
Voting gives you 80 Gold once completed. Once your done creating your character your Gold should already be in your Boutique tab (O).
Players can now level quickly to 101. This includes your Rebirths!
To start leveling, simply start killing the “Star Spirits” Outside of Heroes’Terrace. (336, 521), (329, 534), (320, 534).
Keep tabs on your Unique Rewards Chest! Each level you’ll get rewards to help you on your Journey. Including your Rebirth Stones!
Once you get to Lv101 the first time, You will get Special Teleport stones. One for 1k Streams & another for North Arch District.
Use the North District stone & go to the Rebirth NPC. “Master of Cycles” ( 564, 675) Once you rebirth the first time. You will be sent to your hometown of your class. Speak to the Teleport Master in front of you and go to “Quest Related” and Teleport back into the Celestial Vale.
Rinse & Repeat with the Star Spirits for your First & Second Rebirth!
We recommend you level your Ancient Tome first before your actual character. You will gain more EXP this way. Hyper Stones can be crafted through the Frostburn Merchant! Or you can purchase Hypers from the Boutique along side Training Esotericas.
To Level your Ancient Tome, Enter the Character Menu (C). Select Ancient Tome, look at the bottom right of the book, Click on Summon. The Demon will awaken and it will start gaining EXP through kills, quest etc.
The best way to Level is by doing Rancor events, Phoenix Valley or Invasions. Check out our 24/7 Event Schedules here- Event Schedules
Players can now start out at First fairy (Demon or Sage)
To do so, you need to speak to the Frostburn Merchant, Go to Quest Related. Look for the Gold quest that says Cultivation. You have to take it a few times, Make sure to choose your Cultivation carefully! Otherwise you will have to spend Gold or Frostburn tokens to change later on.
In order to get your Second & Third fairy, You can buy the Cultivation Insignia from the Boutique (O) or simply Craft them at the Frostburn Merchant under the Upgrade Tab using Frostburn Tokens.
Once your reach Lv101 your Unique Reward chest will give you various items to craft your Rank9 Gear, Starter ornaments and other useful items.
You will also receive 3 Shadow Box items that when clicked will let you choose your class Shadow Gear. This is a special kind of gear which was introduced in Frostburn 2.1 (version 211) and its special in that is not permanent. You can find more info about the Shadow gear by clicking here.
