    Exploring The World

    Hanging out in town La Tale is a unique side-scrolling MMO, similar to Maple Story but offers a little bit more depth in combat and skills. There are five main classes in La Tale, and later on in the game players can branch off and upscale their main class into another more powerful sub-class. One of the five basic classes in La Tale that players will start off with is the Explorer. The other four include Warriors, Knights, Wizards and Engineers.

    The Explorer sort of fits the bill as a mixed long-range and close-range character class due to their ability to use melee weapons, daggers, bows and crossbows. When they reach level 80 they can either class advance as a Treasure Hunter or turn into a Gunslinger.

    This La Tale Explorer guide for beginners will help detail what you can expect from the Explorer class, as well as outline some of the skills you’ll earn early on in the game.

    The Explorer’s Weapons Of Choice

    Fighting outside of town There are four different weapon types at the disposal of Explorers in La Tale, these include knuckles for up-close melee combat, daggers and shields for defensive players, bows for speedy long-range attacks and crossbows for high-powered long-range attacks.

    Each weapon has its own special set of upgradeable skills that players can put points into, along with other miscellaneous skills that can help in a number of things, including luck and extra earnings of money per level. But that’s covered later on in the guide.

    For the most part, it’s important to pick out which skill set you would like to upgrade for a weapon. While it’s possible to use multiple weapons, and level up multiple weapon skills, it will ultimately hurt your character in the long run of leveling.

    Basics For Explorers

    Climbing a ladder after beating a beetle There’s a few things to keep in mind when playing as an Explorer. When using crossbows you’ll be slow on the draw and have a tough time keeping large mobs off of you, despite being able to dish out a lot of damage. It might be best to party often when using the crossbow in order to have another party member work as a mob distraction while you snipe from a distance. Normal bows are much faster but don’t deal as much damage, just like the Scouts on Allods Online, making them ideal for solo play.
