Creating your first character
When you first start playing MT4 Lost Honor, you’ll be given the option to choose a language and server. If it’s your first character, you’ll be automatically directed to the list of the available classes where you can read up on the basic characteristics of each one. Once you have picked one, you’ll be transferred to a basic tutorial mode. You can choose your IGN once you finish the basic tutorial. You can start customizing your character as you go progress in the game.
Succeeding logins will now show your chosen character at the homescreen, as well as additional slots that you can tap if you wish to create additional new characters.
Basic functions and user interface
- Different starting points
Each class/race starts off in a different area, so don’t be surprised if your friend picked a different class and is nowhere to be seen when you start your adventure. They’re probably in the starting area of their class. Don’t worry, you’ll eventually meet at some point.
- Basic UI
The user interface is your typical mobile MMO layout. The upper left is your character info, below that is your quest list or quest tracker, and on the upper right is your mini-map and inventory which is the bag icon. To the lower right is your skill quick slots, jump button, and aim button. Lower left is for your joystick used to move your character. Lastly, the lower middle part serves as your chat feed.
- Camera controls
Swiping the screen will let you change the camera angle. Pinching outward will zoom out the camera and pinching inward will let it zoom in. Zoom in close enough and you’ll enter the screenshot mode where you can take pictures of your character without the UI for better images.
The mini-map is located at the upper right side of the screen. Tapping it will open the larger map of the current area you are in. The left side shows the different establishments you can interact with while on the right side is a collapsible list of NPCs, monsters, teleportation spots, and gathering spots currently available in that specific area. Tapping a location on the map will prompt your character to automatically go to that marked spot.
Tapping the “world” button on the upper left of the map interface will open the continent map where you can see all the different areas you’ll be exploring.
It won’t be an RPG without quests. Available quests in MT4 are marked with a yellow question mark and can usually be seen floating above NPCs or quest givers.
There are also other icons that you’ll encounter during your quest progress such as the gear icon which means you can interact with something.
If you ever get lost during your quests, you can tap the quest button in your quest list/tracker and it will prompt all the currently active ones. Pressing the auto-pathfinder will put you back on the right track. The quest tracker also helps you find your next task destination and other quests that are currently active or haven’t been finished yet.
Combat is fairly easy to understand. Attacks are automatic in general and skills assigned in your skill slots will be auto-casted, which helps during questing and grinds. You can also do manual casting, which is essential during raids and boss fights since you need to time your skills especially for support players. You cannot auto attack inside instances, multiplayer modes, and dungeon raids.
Your inventory can be accessed when you press the bag icon beside your mini-map. It is divided into equipment, materials, consumables, gems, and others. This is also where you can do equipment repairs and sell items. Each gear has endurance and if it goes low, you can easily repair it by tapping the hammer icon. Selling icons will give you silver and sometimes enchanting materials which can be used to make enchanting scrolls. Sold items cannot be retrieved so be careful and double check what you’re selling.
Mounts can be unlocked at level 4 which will greatly help you travel around. They also give you stat boosts.
Players can change their skin with costumes. There are two styles available: real form and chibi. You can obtain costumes by purchasing them or from in-game features and special events. Costumes can be changed at will.
The settings menu can be accessed by tapping the switch button just above the skill buttons. Here you will find user account information, graphics settings for the game, customer support, and game-play settings.
- Interacting with other players
Pressing the beer icon on the left side of the chat feed brings up the social tab. Here, you can see all your friends that you have added. There’s a number of functions available in the social tab like sending private messages, blocking rude people, and even adding Facebook friends that are already playing. It also serves as the mailing system of the game. To add a player to your list, simply tap their character avatar and a bubble with an option to add that player will pop up. You can also add someone in the chat feed by tapping their username and then pressing the add friend button.

- Life skills
There are four types of living skills: Tailoring, Alchemy, Blacksmithing, and Leather-working. Each life skill contains three factors: Living skills level, production Formula, Create materials.
- Alchemy – All the items produced from Alchemy are used for consumption, including Elixir, Potion, Flask, Shapeshift Potion and Fireworks.
- Tailoring – Tailoring can collect flax and cotton cloth in the game to make bags, Bracers, Gauntlets, Shoes, and Leggings. All these items can be used or sold. There is a good market need in the game for these items, which is a good channel to make money.
- Leather-working – You can get materials by collecting Animal remains to make equipment like Helmet, Pauldrons, Belts, and clothes, as well as the special item “Drum” which is an item that gives great stat buffs that last for five minutes.
- Blacksmithing – Through learning blacksmithing, you can collect ores to make Weapons, Trinkets, Necklaces, Rings, and Treasure chest keys, which are quite special since there are many treasure chests scattered around the game.
How to gain EXP early
- Main Quest – You can collect EXP and combat skills from the main quest
- Side Quest – Main quests are not consistent and will break in certain levels. You can do side quests when this happens.
- Prestige Quest – You can receive prestige quests at the prestige NPC in the main city. Completing the prestige quests can also make you accumulate a lot of EXP. There are a total of 30 prestige quests that can be done daily.
- Pass Dungeon – Different PVE dungeons can contribute a lot of upgrade EXP, and it is also a necessary way to change and acquire high-level equipment. For the junior warriors entering the game, participating in the dungeon is the most affordable way to gain EXP because it is more efficient to kill monsters and kill a Boss with the help of the skillful master.
- Timed events – In daily timed events, Bonfire Quiz, Arena, and Battlefield are the most common ways to gain additional EXP.
- Back Rewards – Reward recovery is a kind of EXP compensation. If you fail to participate in various activities, you can try to click the events to claim back the EXP. Both the perfect recovery and normal recovery require you to pay to claim back the EXP and the rewards.
