Default Nodiatis FAQ

Please post your own questions (add answers if you know them) and we will add them to this newly forming FAQ.

What do I do? Somebody help me!
Follow the instructions of the tutorial. It is very short and will give you an idea of how to buy items, equip them, get quests, fight creatures, loot items (you can click the word "LOOT" to make it faster), and use trophies for skill advancement. If you skipped through the tutorial too fast the first time make another character and pay attention this time.

How do I clear my "cache" ? (Browser Clients)
Clearing your browser's cache can sometimes be necessary to force it to re-download game data that has been stored incorrectly.

For the HTML 5 and WebGL clients (default):

For the Java client:
https://www.java.com/en/download/hel...ntrolpanel.xml <- Open Java Control Panel
https://www.java.com/en/download/help/plugin_cache.xml <- Use it to clear cache

What are the rules?
The rules are simple and straightforward and boil down to "don't be a jerk." You can read them here:

What class is most powerful? What should I be?
All the classes in Nodiatis have the potential to be very powerful in combat, however, you should play the one you most enjoy. Casters are difficult to play especially at first, however, with time they can become extremely powerful.

I am getting blocked because of my school/work filters. Is there a way around them?
You can try to connect directly via our IP addresses using a special port:
but your browser (and the filter you are trying to bypass) won't be able to verify the site identity, requiring you to go to advanced options and continue regardless.

Can I have multiple characters?
Yes. And not only can have multiple characters but you can play them together if you are really hardcore. Read more here: http://forums.nodiatis.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382

What's Nodiatis all about anyways?
The Nodiatis storyline can be round here: http://forums.nodiatis.com/forums/showthread.php?t=312

What is a time card?
Time cards can be purchased for $5 each and used to get game upgrades. Currently all time cards purchased are fully tradeable.

How can I get beast spawn messages on my phone?
Android download our special notification app (not the Nodiatis app): https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Notifier&hl=en
Apple/iOS/iPhone/iPad (the Nodiatis app): https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nodi...323337802?mt=8

How can I fix slow beast spawn messages on my Android phone?
Push notifications on Android can be delayed by default. To force them to come more quickly, we recommend you install this free app on your phone:

How Do I Delete My Character?
You cannot delete a character in Nodiatis, however, you start from scratch again by using the reroll method. For details read this thread: http://forums.nodiatis.com/forums/showthread.php?t=797

Does this gem/ability stack with that other one?
Unless otherwise stated in the effect description, EVERYTHING should stack except for aura effects of the same type. If a gem doesn't have aura in the name then it is not an aura. All damage over time gems stack because they are not auras. This includes Damage Over Time (DoT) gems which you can cast repeatedly to build up damage.

Traveling Takes Forever, Help!
If you find a great hunting spot and your bags are full use gate potions to return to the last town you were at, then use recall potions to return to the last place you gated from.

How can I buy upgrades? Do I have to?
Players can buy account upgrades by clicking the $ icon on the bottom of their screen next to the rested time meters. In order to protect the game economy against mass free account farming we only allow paid accounts to actively trade with other characters, but you could play the entire game through to the hardest creatures without ever paying anything if you really wanted to. You can even buy all the game upgrades without spending a dime by buying time cards from other players.

How can I receive alerts about the game on my phone?
Get the Glitchless Notifier App, currently available for Android.

How can I see what quests I'm currently doing?
Simply move your mouse cursor over your accomplishments window icon on the lower right of your screen and read the mouseover window to view your current quests.

How do I get accomplishments?
The vast majority of accomplishments are resource skill oriented. Every time you manage to harvest a new type of item by playing the resource skill minigames you will gain a new accomplishment.

How come it says I'm too heavy to move or even gate?
The maximum weight you can still move/gate with while encumbered is 3 times your total decumberance weight.

How do I (un)ignore someone?
Type /ignore username or right-click on their player icon, and toggle ignore. Type /clearignore to remove all ignores.

How do I level up?
Every time you gain 4 skills (out of Melee, Magic, Defense, and/or Recovery) in the Stats tab, you will gain a level. Leveling Class Enhancement or other Stats skills will not count towards your next level. When you understand the leveling process better you may wish to disable auto stat cycling under account options or the game will continue to alternate between melee, magic, defense, and recovery stat skills.

What is shared bliss?
If someone makes a purchase with real money, everyone online receives 1 gold for each $1 US the player spends unless they have disabled shared bliss altogether under account options. Note, players on your ignore list never benefit from your blisses - but blissing may make them realize they are on your ignore list so turn off bliss if that bothers you.

Where do I use spirit trophies?
In the altars inside the church where the seer is in each town. You can also use both combat and spirit trophies on the Altar of the Beast outside.

What is the maximum number of group members?
Three. Nodiatis is geared toward small groups of friends, not huge raids.

What is solo/acumen group?
It's when you are grouped with another player (or two) but don't fight in the same battles. This is so you can take advantage of the Group Acumen learning skill (click on the Learning tag in the skills window to see its description). The other group member can be any level in any area doing anything for you to get the benefit.

What is dismantling?
If you dismantle an item, you receive the master recipe for the item, and a stack of resins close to the store sell value of that item.

So what do I do with a master recipe?
Assemble the ingredients listed and use a quill pen to create consumable copies of the recipe. Then, you assemble the new ingredients listed there to create the item itself.

What are resins?
Resins are how you can craft trophies. You simply use an enchanting rod (bought in Stronhad or Atlimus for 600g) and place a stack of at least 1 resin in the top left hand corner only. The result will be a stack of either combat or spirit (random within limits) trophies at the value of 33.33g/1k exp, with the exception of the lower value trophies, and a weirdly priced resin or two that give slightly less exp for your gold. Resins can be bought in the General Store of each town, or from dismantling items.

What happens if I die?
If you die to a normal creature, then you will be teleported to the last town you visited, and lose rested time minutes equal to your player level. In a duel you don't lose anything except time wasted to regenerate afterwards. Dying to a PK does not result in any rested time loss but you are teleported to the last town you visited.

What are enchanting stones good for?
Enchanting stones modify your item's stats, giving and taking away an equal amount. This helps players achieve the stat ratios they desire.

I know I hate Daze, but why?
Daze causes you to attack random people, even yourself. Certain gems can cause you to be immune to daze effects.

Why can't I use the 2nd pet slot?
You need a minimum of Level 30 in Petmanship to use 2 pets.

When can I use 2 weapons?
At Level 20, you have access to a new skill called Dual Wield. Once you reach Level 20 in that skill, you can dual wield two one-handed weapons.

I have really high Cnt, but I rarely resist anything, doesn't it work?
Cnt requires skill in Sorcery, Diabolism, and/or Mind Bending to resist spells since it modifies their effect. It also prevents you from taking extreme magic damage from high level creatures caused if your Cnt is very low.

I'm fighting a creature higher level than me, but I have lots of Dex and an accurate weapon, so why do I miss all the time?
Your player level compared to enemy level is a major factor in determining your chance to hit - the higher the enemy is compared to you, the less chance you have of landing a blow/shot.

What is a hell level?
Hell levels are levels which take twice exp it would normally need to finish. They start at level 9, and are every other level ending in 9 (19, 29, etc.).

I finished my battle, but why can't I gate?
If you hover your mouse over your RT bar, you will see that you need to be at full mana/energy/HP, at least 60 seconds (20/30 for RRT/RT on acceleration) since the last time you were in combat, and not gathering resources. You need to fulfill these conditions before you can gate.

What are virtues/epics?
Epics are equipment that have better stats then they would normally at that level, and are rare drops off creatures. You can use an epic for yourself, but in order to sell/trade an epic for profit, you must purchase the virtues it needs. A lot of epics share the same requirements so if you purchase virtues for one epic, then you may not need to if you find/buy another one. Virtues cost $4.99 USD or 1 timecard each, and there are a total 30 of them. As well as allowing you to sell epics, virtues give your character an additional 3.33% exp gain in all areas, which means that with all 30 virtues you will level at twice the normal rate. You can purchase virtues either by right-clicking an epic you find, or one that is in your trade window (trade doesn't have to go through). You can also buy them all at once with the virtue pack.

How do I get rid of the <SB> soulbound effect?
The only way to do that is to sell the item to a store and then buy it back.

Where do I find gear to access certain areas?
Travel gear is dropped off of bosses or bought in the general store of towns.

Can I transfer items/characters between S1 and S2?
Servers were merged.
Items and characters are not transferable between S1 and S2. Other than chatting, these servers are meant to be independent of each other. The only exception to this rule is real money purchased items such as TCs, Storage Expanders, and Inventory Expanders. If you have acquired these items directly from us and you realize you have decided you want them on a different server, you can e-mail help@nodiatis.com for assistance transferring them. Requests MUST BE MADE on the same day as the purchase -or- the requested amount to be transferred must be at least 25 TCs. Your characters must have a purchase history at least equal to the # of TCs being transferred.

How do I get more gem slots in my pouch?
You start off with 5 gem slots, and after you reach level 5, then you will gain an additional pouch slot each time you gain a level, until you reach level 50, and therefore 50 pouch slots.

Why can't I hear sounds?
If that doesn't help, report the problem on the forums.

How can I change the background color?
To change your background color you need to add the color to the end of the URL, example for red:
View more hex colors here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors

How do I recover a lost account?
How do I contact Glitchless and get help?
E-mail help@nodiatis.com for assistance with your account or purchases made for your account. For game mechanics questions (i.e. Why can't I kill the fisherman naked?) you must use the forums, however.
