New Player's Guide

The learning curve on God Wars II is admittedly rather steep. If you log in and feel completely lost, don't despair. The purpose of this guide is to help you learn the ropes and introduce you to the key concepts of the game.

Further information and guidance is available through a system of hints and help files within the game, as well as in the Library section of this web site.
