Question #1; I do not live in the US, can I play Requiem?
Yes, even though this is the US version, there is no IP ban and you can play it UNLESS there is a local version of the game close to you like Russia and Korea.
Question #2; The official download is so slow, is there other ways to download the game?
Yes, you can download the game in 3 parts from the MegaUpload links here Part1 Part2 Part3 and you can also can try the Requiem Downloader here.
Question #3; I can't patch! I keep getting ''Failed Patch Download'', what can I do?
Sakana has a thread about manual patching which he updates weekly here.
Question #4; Okay I can log on but what server should I choose?
There's currently 2 servers, one is PK and the other is non-PK. The only difference is that players can kill each others above Lvl 26 on the PK server (Hammerine).
Question #5; How does the PK (Player Killer) system works on the Hammerine Server?
Ctrl + mouse click on a player will add him/her to your enemy list and you will be able to kill him/her; also, by pressing Shift with Ctrl you will be able to add more than one person to your list at the same time. Only players above Lvl 26 can PK/be pk'ed, Turba and Nova Lux are safe zones and you cannot PK a party/alliance member or a guild member.
Killing someone who isn't in ''PK state'' (When you initiate a PK action, your name will become purple and you will no longer give negative tendency if you are killed) will give you negative tendency (Your name will become red with a skull) which makes you unable to group up with other players and talk to vendor NPCs until you are ''cleaned''. You lose 100 negative tendency everytime you get killed and you can also get cleaned by using an item mall Tendency Reset.
Getting pk'ed will give no penalties except you will automatically get kicked from your group/alliance; also, the more PK kills you have, the more negative tendency you collect per kill (Max is -30k) and there is an option in the game settings to automatically add anyone who harms you into your enemy list.
Question #6; What race or class should I choose?
Question #7; Is there any ways to see the faces and hairs of all races? I'm really not sure about which to pick.
Faces and hairs of all races can be found here.
Question #8; I'm in-game but I have no ideas how the game works.. where can I look up quests, tips or general game mechanics?
Requiem Wiki holds a lot of general datas about Requiem; items, quests, skills, etc. Some informations could be outdated so do your part and update it when you're more knowledgeable!
Lucky Box system.
Question #9; Is this game mostly quests leveling or is it grindy?
There's a lot of quests (Click here for the list of quests) and the Devs are implementing new ones from time to time which make Requiem almost without grind until higher levels; but of course as a free player there will be times where you will need to grind when a paying player will just need to quest.
Question #10; How overpowered is the Cash Shop (Item Mall) in this game?
Really overpowered but it is still possible to do okay without spending anything, it just requires much more times and work. You can also buy Cash Shop items with in-game currency if some players are selling Item Mall points for Lant (Not approved by Gravity but also not forbidden; you'll have only yourself to blame if you get scammed since Gravity will not restore anything).
Question #11; What are battlefields and how do they work?
More information about battlefields can be found here.
Question #12; There's players spamming general chat with Lant selling messages for real life money in the starting area, are those legit? Or what I can do to ignore them since it's annoying?
Those are chinese gold sellers and it's a bannable offense to buy from them. You'll need to send a ticket to support here so that GMs can act and ban them; but your only options to clean your chat from those pests is to either block them (There's a block tab in the Community window UI) or to simply make a chat tab without General chat enabled.
Question #13; I don't want to spend money for a temporary mount, is there a way to get one for free?
Yes, you can get a permanent mount at Lvl 29 with a quest; it's only +20% speed but you'll be happy to have it in the future! Rucia in Nova Lux will start the quest and for more informations, look here.
Question #14; I see that we have 5 bag slots total, where can I get them?
The second, third and fourth bags can be acquired by doing the quests at the starting area of Turba; the fifth bag can only be bought with the Item Mall (Bag Expansion 500 points) and will also unlock ALL your bag slots if you didn't do your quests yet. And no, you cannot have more than 5 bags right now.
Question #15; How can I buy stacks of ammos or potions from the NPC? It takes so long buying 1 by 1.
Press left shift and drag the item in your bags; the same can be done to divide a stack in your bags.
Question #16; I've bought some WP Energy to spend on Requiem, what would be the best Cash Shop items to buy or would Premium be good?
Premium (800 WP Energy) is the best investment you can make since it'll dramatically increase your EXP gained (50%) and the Lant/Drops gained (30%); you will also have access to Regional chat, extra bank slots, Premium dungeons and lose less EXP when you die. If you convert the rest of your WP Energy into Item Mall points, buying a Reduction Tool 30 days (200 Mall points) and a Costume (150 Mall points) would help you greatly to level up. A Mount, 30% EXP scroll, Pet, 50% Lant scroll would come next but they wouldn't be as needed as the Reduction Tool and Costume.
Question #17; I bought a Reduction Tool 30 days from the Item Mall but I can't find it in my bags? Where is it?
Open your Cash Shop window and click on the ''Manage Items'' button at the bottom! The timer on your items will not start until you drag it to your bags.
Question #18; I keep hearing about S1, S2 and even S3... what is that?
S2 Memento Mori was the first major revamp of the game and it's our current version. Players tend to refer to the pre-S2 era as ''S1'' and S3 is only a rumor of a mysterious and unconfirmed update in the future.
Question #19; Do we get a skill reset at Lvl 50 when we job change?
No, you will need to buy a Skill Reset from the Item Mall to reset your skills and DNAs.
Question #20; How can I get more than 25 DNA points?
You can buy an extra 25 DNA points from the Cash Shop (50 total) and you can also get an extra 5 from a long long quest which starts in Kurt and finish at Lvl 75. So the maximum DNA points obtainable currently is 55 with the quest + Cash shop.
Question #21; Where do I get my Possession Beast?
The mayor of Zakate (Turba) will give you the quest at Lvl 23. but it will require you to go in the Ruins of Lament at the end which will be really difficult unless you find a party or level up a bit.
Question #22; I'm confused by the Personal Shop interface or how to open it.
Informations about Personal Shops can be found here.
Question #23; Does the Cash Shop pet gain EXP by killing monsters?
No, the Item Mall pets gain a certain % every 10~ minutes that it's summoned; meaning that people who afk in-game all day and night will get a high level pet quickly.
Question #24; How do I use a Pet Extention/Pet Name Change/Pet Growth Booster?
Right click on your Pet item in your bags and it'll give you a list of options. Also, do note that you can't change the name of your pet if it's summoned.
Question #25; Where can I see Lvl 10 form of Pets? o.o
You can find the skins of most pets
Question #26; I'm so poor! How do you actually make Lant in this game?
A Reduction Tool from the Item Mall will save you a lot of Lant and will help you to make some money since you'll be able to sell the Basic Xeons on the Action House; but mostly, your biggest income of Lant will be from selling items on the AH, from grinding (Premium and a Lant scroll will increase the amount of lant a lot) and from selling junk to the NPCs. Selling Item Mall points for Lant will make you rich quickly too if you feel like spending money.
Question #27; Party, alliance, corps.. I'm confused by all those grouping fonctions.. care to explain?
- A Party is your basic group; can have 5 players total maximum and each player will add a 10% EXP bonus, +40% EXP for a full party of 5. The command to invite to a party is /party name or /in name.
- An Alliance party is a bigger group to kill raid bosses or do battlefields; it can have 15 players (3 parties of 5) but there is no EXP bonus like the smaller Party. The command to invite to an alliance is /united name.
- A Corps is a combination of 3 different alliances, it can hold 45 players maximum. You can invite an alliance to your Corps by inviting the Alliance leader of another Alliance with the /Corps name command. Also, in a Corps, only the Corps leader can talk to the whole Corps; everyone is entitled to their own Alliance and the Corps leader will only see the chat of his own Alliance and the typing of the other 2 Alliance leaders.

Classes, Raids and Events Questions
Question #29; When can I get my 2nd class?
At Lvl 50; a notice will pop up to tell you where to job change.
Question #30; I've heard about job change items, does it mean I could go from Shaman to Templar? And where do I get those job changes?
Classes are race specific, so no you couldn't go from a Bartuk class to a Turan class; but you could change from Shaman to Warrior though. For a player who hasn't picked a 2nd class yet, you will need a ''Lower Job Change Certificate'' which can be acquired from certain events or Item Mall special events. A 2nd class character like a Forsaker or Tempest, etc, will need a ''Upper Job Change Certificate'' to switch; and will only have access to his race specific classes.
Question #31; What's a Raid? o.0
The main difference between an instance and a Raid is that you'll need much more than 5 people to down a Raid boss and he'll drop much more shiny items.
Question #32; Ok so where are those Raids and how I find a group for one?
The current Raid instances in level order are: Ruinhorn (67+), Biskra (68+), Doom Cheras (70+), Lord Werinuman (71+) , Jacob Shrine (72-75+), Secret Temple (77+), Erunil Tower (79+). Your best chance to find a raid group is to have a guild with people willing to do them too.
Question #33; I did Ruinhorn earlier and I tried to do it again but I was unable to enter the raid instance? What's up with that?
Raid instances have a lockout; meaning that when you kill a boss, you cannot do it again until the lockout resets or you use an Item Mall Raid Reset. Depending on the raid, lockouts last 1-3 days and are also reset with the weekly maintenance.
Question #34; I've seen the HH (Happy Hour) notices from the GMs in-game, where could I find more informations about them?
HH informations are Facebook exclusive and you will need to create a Facebook account and become a friend of the Requiem Facebook to see them here.
Question #35; Anything special I should know about events?
- Happy Hours (HH) happens from time to time and on the chosen days, there will be 3 of them (2x 3 hours and the third one is 4h) activated during the day (First one is at 5h AM Server time, second one at noon Server time, third one is at 6h PM server time) by the GMs. It increase EXP by 30%, lants and drops by 100% and Reinforcement/Enchanting success by 5%.
- We also have seasonal events like Halloween, Christmas, etc, who comes with special goodies, rates, drops, cash shop items and much more sometime!
- Gravity also has Premium or Points discounts from time to time.
All servers are down for maintenance every Tuesday from 10h pm pacific time (GMT -8) to 2h am.
Question #37; I've seen a bot or a hacker in-game, what can I do to report them?
GMs don't look at the forums so you will need to send a ticket to support here. Also, taking fraps or/and screenshots as proofs to include them in your ticket will help the GMs.
Question #38; I'm a returning player and I don't remember my old passcodes, is there any ways to reset them?
Yes, send a ticket to support here.
Question #39; I'm lagging and crashing a LOT and I have a pretty good computer, what is going on?
Due to major coding flaws, the game tends to lag quite a bit in some situations and even crash.
Question #40; I can't patch! I keep getting ''Failed Patch Download'', what can I do?
Sakana has a thread about manual patching which he updates weekly here.
Question #41; I've tried buying WarpPortal Energy but it only gives me a message saying to wait 24 hours, what can I do? -.-
