REND Beginners Guide
Remember that the big yellow tree on the horizon is north. When you spawn in, you can open your Crafting Menu whose default key is C. The first thing that you need to do is to craft everything that you see in the tree. These are some of the basic items which will be very important in your survival. The first few items are Fiver Twine with Raw Fiber. After that, you will need to go forward and get some Spirit Tools such as the Spirit Hatchet.
You can get logs from right-clicking the trees and branches from harvesting them. The Spirit Mallet can be used to harvest rocks. Some items will be easy to get such as Raw Fiber and some items will be difficult to get such as Tensile Vine.
Remember to never eat Raw Meat. No matter what happens. Before a bow, you will be able to get food by harvesting melon plants. After that, you can use a bow for hunting. Once you kill an animal, you can harvest it with any tool. Left click gives your foot and Right Click gives you leather and leather products. Water can be drunk by going to a source and pressing F.
You also get to have 2 different Archetypes for your character. Remember that you cannot undo a point once you have put in it. You can decide which of the Archetype supports your play style and select that one as it is down to pure personal choice. You can progress through the skill trees by performing acts such as crafting and building and having better archetypes at your disposal.
There are a lot of PvP options available to you as well. You need to collect spirits to ensure that your faction is victorious. Your faction has a base and the map is split into 3 different factions. Walk north from your spawn point and you will be able to identify your base soon enough. In order to collect Spirits, you can either consume Spirit Flowers from Harvesting Plants or Harvest Spirit Whisps that spawn at night.
There are also times when you need to defend your base or attack bases. You can also go to other faction areas to capture points which are small trees that give you sparks of genius. These sparks can be used for research.
Taming can be done in the game. Head to your taming workshop and craft some of the ingredients required such as Taming Crystals, 100 Spirit Arrows, and Potions of the other side. Craft a simple bow and find a creature that you want to tame. Throw your Taming Crystal and then kill it. After that, go to the Spirit Realm where it died and use your Simple Bow along with Spirit Arrows to shoot the creature a lot of times.
Fill up the Tame Bar on the creature and that will soon have the creature activated from your Pet Menu at the Taming Workshop. Once you have it activated, spawn it in by pressing Z. Lastly, remember that whenever you die, your items will stay on your body for some time and you can go and retrieve them.
