Here you will find all information about how to play on Tibianic.

1 Move the character
There are 3 ways main ways to move your character.
a) Use arrow keys, or by clicking on "Num-Lock" and walk with your number pad instead (1, 9, there 1, 3, 7 and 9 is diagonal walking)
b) left-click on the screen (will cause your character to walk to the place you clicked)
c) right click on the screen (will make your character walk next to it, and attempt to "use" the item you clicked on)

2 Move Items
a) Drag&Drop
In Tibiaoldtimes, items are moved using "drag&drop". In other words, to move an item you must left-click on it, then pull it on the place you want it to be, holding down the mouse button. The cursor will turn into cross-hairs to help you determine where exactly the item will be placed when you drop it. In the flash client, you will also see a miniature version of the dragged item while moving the cursor around.
If you want your character to take an item, simply drag it onto her backpack and let go of the mouse button. Your character does not have to be placed next to the item you wish her to take, because characters move automatically towards the desired objects they are about to pick up. If you would like to throw an item away, click onto it and drag it onto the game window. The item will be dropped on the spot where you let go of the mouse button. Of course, your character cannot throw items through obstacles like walls. Also, note that heavy items such as furniture can only be moved one field away from your character at a time.

b) Moving Stacks of Items
If you would like to move a stack such as a heap of gold, a small dialog will open up in which you will be asked how many items you would like to move. You can modify the number of items you would like to move by using the slide bar or by typing the amount with the keyboard. There are 2 shortcuts in order to speed up the process of moving stacked items: if you drag the stack while holding down the Shift button, you will only move one stacked item at a time. On the other hand, if you keep your finger on the Ctrl key while you are dragging the items, the whole stack will be moved at once.

c) Moving Wall Decorations
Drag&drop is also used to put up or take down wall decorations such as cuckoo clocks, tapestries and paintings. Simply place your character in front of a suitable wall and drag the decoration onto it. Note, however, that wall decorations may only be put up on walls facing south and east. You cannot place decorations on windows, doors or southeast corner walls. Also, wall decorations may not be placed on walls that are already decorated. Finally, please note that some wall decorations cannot be moved at all.

3 Pushing Creatures
Pushing creatures or characters works just like moving heavy items. Simply left-click onto them, then drag them in the direction you want them to be moved. You will find that after a short delay your target will be moved in the desired direction, provided there is no wall or other obstacle and the creature or character has not moved away in the meantime. Note that your character will skip the next attack if he pushes a creature or character in combat. Also, please note that pushing your own character or another character will be slower than moving to the desired destination normally. Finally, many strong monsters cannot be pushed and often they can also push items or other weak monsters blocking their way.

4 Using Items
Using items is another action that is controlled by right-clicking on the item, Items are used in a manner that is typical for their function - torches will be lit when used, food will be eaten, scrolls can be edited etc.

However, some items must be used on other items, characters or map spots in order to work. To use such items right-click on them. On doing this the mouse pointer will turn into crosshairs. Now move the crosshairs on the item, character or map spot you want to use the item with and left-click to confirm. Typical items that are used this way include ropes, shovels, potions and runes. Also bread, cakes and cookies as well as various drinks can be produced this way. E.g. if you use water on flour, you will get the dough you need to bake the delicious Tibiaoldtimes bread. Weapons may also be used this way in order to smash many large items such as chairs, chests, etc. Note, however, that each strike only has a limited chance of success, so you may have to hit the target you want to destroy several times. Also, please note that most items cannot be destroyed this way.
If you have items you need to use often such as runes or food, you can make your life in Tibiaoldtimes much easier by assigning them to hotkeys. Once you have done this, all you need to do is to press the assigned button and the action of your choice will be performed automatically.
All editable items in the game, e.g. blackboards, letters or scrolls, can be read and edited if you use them. Please note that the name of the most recent editor of the item is shown above the input field. Consequently, you will always be able to see who has actually written the text on the item.

5 Look on Items & Creatures
To look on items, creatures or more, simply move your mouse above it, and left + right-click on the same time, and you will get a description of what you're looking at.

6 Attack Creatures & Players
In Tibiaoldtimes you gain experience by killing creatures, to attack them, you simply right-click on them.
If you're stronger than the monster, you will kill it eventually, and gain certain amount of experience.
If you are weaker than the monster, and risk being killed yourself, there's way to win over the monster anyway, by healing items such as life fluid, or healing runes.
There are even spells that could help you.
Same goes with players, but if you attack a player, you will gain a white skull that will be visible above your character, that means you've attacked a player.
Once you have a white skull, players can attack you without themselves getting any skulls, however you will see them wearing a yellow skull, if they attacked you while you had a white skull, but you never attacked that particularity player.
A white skull last 15 minutes.
If you kill a player that doesn't wear any skull, you will gain something called a frag, a unjustified murder.
If you reach 6 frags, your character will get banished, a banishment last for 7 days.

7 Looting Creatures
Once you have killed a creature, the body will stay on the ground, you can then just right-click on the body to open it, and view the items this creature dropped.

8 Eating
To recover your health and mana points your character must not be hungry.
Simply eat (right-click on food)food such as fish, meat, ham, fruit or whatever you may find, and your health and mana points will slowly keep raising.
You can eat multiple things before you will get the message "You are full" that will make sure you get health and mana as long as possible before you need to eat again.

9 Climbing Ladders and Using Ropes

And you can use rope spot by right-click on the rope and left-click on the rope-spot.
