Gameplay Basics

Armour Loading and Movement Speed

Harkyn has a total weight limit that players can work with in decking him out. This limit determines which weapons and armour Harkyn can use. Obviously, the more defence focused heavy armour sets and larger two handed weapons are going to weigh significantly more than light armour and smaller one-handed weapons.

Depending on how much of the weight limit is used, Harkyn’s movement speed will be altered. There are three movement speeds:

  • Fast movement speed - 25% loading and below.
  • Medium movement speed – Between 25% - 75%.
  • Slow movement speed - 50% and above.

Characters with light armour (left) can move much faster than those with heavy armour (right).

Movement speed is very important, especially when you wish for Harkyn to be able to move around the battlefield. The faster Harkyn is, the less armour he can equip, but the more manoeuvrable he becomes, likewise the reverse is true with heavy armour reducing movement speed significantly. In general, a balanced medium speed is good and will get you through most of the game.
