TORVA BEGINNER GUIDE

Hello and welcome to the fantastic world of Torva. Upon your arrival here you may be at a loss where to start your adventure and unsure how the game works, but no worries we have you covered! In this guide you will find out how to progress through the world of Torva broken down into easy to follow sections, let's get started!

LOGGING IN FOR THE FIRST TIME

When you first arrive you’ll be given a few items to help you start out. Among those items are a chronicle weapons box which will give you a weapon of choice to start out with,an adventurer's book,  and a treasure map.

TREASURE MAP

The treasure map is pretty much a straightforward introduction to combat in Torva. Complete the required kills shown on the bottom of the screen and receive rewards for each area completed. Once the kills have been done for the area you will automatically receive your rewards and be teleported to the next zone. Treasure map rewards are some starting Torva coins, flip cards, and bloodied artifacts. Click the flip cards to use them and receive rewards per card. 

BLOOD SHARD INTRODUCTION

The bloodied artifacts are used to get blood shards which are a second currency used in Torva for upgrades. To use them you need to go to the blood shards pool south-west at home and select transfuse all. From the transfuse all screen you and choose which items you want to change into blood shards. Since the only use of bloodied artifacts is sacrificing them into shards we’re going to have them all checked and transfuse all.

You can also take a peek at the blood shard shop while we’re here and see a few items for sale. It is HIGHLY recommended that you save up and purchase the orbs (first 3 items in the store), start with your chosen combat type, then later on get the other 2 as you’ll need them to upgrade. No need to worry about anything else in the shop for the time being.

Blood sacrificing gear is the usual way of gaining blood shards, gear is sacrificed in the same manner as before. It is recommended to blood sacrifice all unwanted gear until you get to Dio and essence mobs. 

You can also click a bloodshard already in your inventory to open the sacrifice menu or do ::bloodall.

ADVENTURER’S BOOK

As I said before one of the items you’ll get upon arrival is an Adventurer’s book. Click on the book to open it and you’ll see a series of tasks to complete for rewards. This is a great way to start and get a real feel for the server. You’ll notice that you already have 1 task completed which is to complete your Tmap. go ahead and click claim and get your reward. One of the items given is a Torva shard, these are used to progress the bar at the bottom of your Adventure’s book.Click exchange at the bottom and you’ll see that the first reward has changed from 0/2 to 1/ 2 completed.

Another quick Adventure’s task you can complete is vote! To vote type ::vote and to receive your rewards once finished type ::voted and then claim your 2nd reward from your Adventurer’s book. Next up on our list is the kill 500 mobs, 2 easy slayer task, and 1 souls task. Killing 500 mobs is self explanatory but i’ll break the other 2 down.

SLAYER TASKS

To begin your first slayer task first open up your “skills” icon and click slayer, you’ll be teleported right next to the retired slayer master.

Right click the slayer master and choose get-task. Select easy task, and either normal or mega task. I personally prefer mega tasks as they’ll help you stay longer for your souls task (explained shortly) and give better slayer points.

I got 227 boars as a mega task which is great for just starting.

The slayer points you receive will be useful for slayer unlocks as you progress through the game and used in the slayer shop for a few select items. Among the list of items from the shop and unlocks  i would recommend are: first and foremost UNLIMITED PRAYER UNLOCK, then in no specific order: chancellor easy unlock, damage/DR unlocks, the slayer helm (has decent stats until you get dio helm mid-game) ring of devotion (starting base ring which can be upgraded) and slayer keys (if you want more ingredients for making potions with alchemy)

Good slayer unlocks to get would be infinite prayer

To see how many kills you have left before completing your slayer task click the quests icon, then the slayer icon to open the menu.

Before you head out on your slayer task please read the next part of the guide below.

SOULS TASKS

Another type of task that Torva has to offer is souls tasks. These tasks set you out to kill a certain amount of mobs and are a vital part of progressing in Torva. To start a task click your skills icon and click souls and it will open up the menu.

Once the menu is open you’ll see a list of mobs and how many of each you need to kill to complete the task. These mobs are separated by difficulty: easy-medium-hard-elite. These groups match up with slayer tasks of the same difficulty and it is  highly recommended to try and do both at the same time when possible. Kills only count while you have the souls task active and you can have a maximum of 4 tasks active at the same time. Since I got Boars as a slayer task I'm going to activate my souls task so I start working on them both at the same time like shown below.

So to recap, get yourself a slayer task, then start your souls task with the same monster if you’re able to do so for the best efficiency while starting out.

Your rewards for completing souls tasks are permanent buffs as shown on the rewards page of the souls menu, and more importantly soul task competitions are needed to wear stronger gear as you progress into the game.

The first example of gear you’re going to find with a souls requirement is dragon beast/ rock solid equipment. They both require 1 soul task completion and that can be identified by the purple soul symbol and the 1 next to the item as shown below

SOUL TASK REQUIREMENT SHOWN

The stronger the gear, the more required completions you’re going to need. So it’s a good thing to get some tasks completed and get your permanent soul rewards, and get some of the gear requirements out of the way early.

TELEPORTATION AND INSTANCES 

Teleportation is pretty straightforward or Torva, to get started just click the world map icon and the menu will open up.

From here you’ll see each set of mobs broken down into groups. Just click on the mob you need to get to and choose teleport. It’s as easy as that. Note that while in the teleportation menu you can actually see the mob’s drop table and you can also see the souls requirement for their said gear. Take Midas for example, I can find him under essence bosses, and when I click him I can see that his gear needs 7 soul tasks (amongst other requirements) to wear.

If at any given time you come to a mob and it’s just WAY too crowded no worries you can create your own private instance for 30 mins by using an instance token, or if you’re on a slayer task and need to kill your slayer mob you can use a slayer instance token.

The only exception for this is rock solids and dios, which due to them being very active zones have ::solid1 and ::dio1 for another public area to access them.

EASE OF ACCESS CTRL KEYS

In Torva there are a few ease of access keybinds that use the CTRL key, to use these press CTRL and press the following.

CTRL+H = teleports you to home CTRL+T = brings up the teleport menu CTRL+D = brings up townhall menu

CTRL+P = opens POS CTRL+B = opens your bank ($100 donation rank required)

PVM POINTS AND SHOP

You begin earning PVM points on mobs listed on the soul task menu medium and above, these points stack up passively and there’s nothing needed on your part to earn them other than kill mobs medium and above. The PVM points master can be found at the north-west corner of home and is the shop to spend your PVM points at.

The first 2 things you’re going to want to save your points up for(unless you want to buy a ring of devotion for 3kpts)  are the infinite overload potion and the droprate potion, in that order. The infinite overload potion is a MASSIVE increase to your damage, and the droprate potion upgrades it even further. Everything else after that is pretty much whatever you want, I personally prefer the T16 tokens later in the game.

Infinite overload and droprate potion

UPGRADES

In Torva there’s an upgrade system that uses many different items but almost all of them need blood shards and coins.you can get to the upgrade menu by selecting the skills icon, then clicking upgrade. A quick example of an early game upgrade is a divine cape. The cape needs a holy cape which is dropped by Deathslinger, an evil cape which is dropped by Elder Goblin, 25m coins, and 100k bloodshards. Explore the menu and find out which upgrades you can shoot for and get going from there.

PROGRESSION LOGS, TOWNHALL, SEASONPASS

I’m just going to go over these quickly as they’re not too hard to understand. All 3 menus are available at the skills icon. 

Progression logs - when you get to mobs that drop gear sets you’ll be rewarded when you’ve collected each of their drops at least once. You can check your progression log to see which drops you’re missing and once you’ve completed it you can claim your reward

Townhall - townhall is a selection of varying tasks that once completed give townhall exp and pts, there are different difficulties of tasks and the harder the task the more exp/pts you’ll receive. You can check the townhall timer to see when the tasks will reset, if you’re working on a task and don’t want it reset just lock it to continue it. townhall/progression rewards are found in this menu along with the townhall shop for your pts.

Season pass - as you play the game and kill mobs you’ll receive season pass pts and you’ll be able to access rewards based on your season pass level. There is a free season pass which is shown on top and a members season pass which can be purchased in the shop on the bottom.

RAIDS

Raids require 1400 gearscore to start. Raids are another vital part of Torva as this is where you can get great drops used for mid-late game. Raid completions are also needed for gear that is dropped by any mobs listed as essence and above. Completions are counted when you use a raid key to open the raid chest, so keep that in mind! You can get to raids by typing ::raids and from here you need to talk with the raids master to get started.

RAIDS SLAYER

Along with raids comes raids slayer, and much like regular slayer the slayer master will assign you a task with a certain amount of raids to complete for raids slayer points. Also much like regular slayer hard tasks will have a higher number of completions needed, but offer better rewards. The raids slayer master is right next to the regular slayer master in the slayer area.

You receive 1 point per raid completion, not to be confused with normal raid completions; these actually count when you finish the raid instead of when you use a key. The raids slayer shop has many items to choose from including raids armor, raids weapons, essenses, and raid keys.

ESSENCE CONVERSION AND ESSENCE MOBS

Much like turning items early game into bloodshards essence conversion uses the essence pool to sacrifice gear in exchange for essence conversion points. There are 2 key points here which are total conversions and conversion points. As you progress into higher essence mobs you will be required to have a certain amount of total conversions as a gear requirement. And your essence points will be used in the essence shop. Only gear dropped by essence mobs found in the essence bosses portion of your teleport menu can be sacrificed here. The essence point pool is found in the south west corner of home right next to the blood pool. To get there click your skills icon and click sacrifice as shown below.

ESSENCE GEAR REQUIREMENTS

Once you get to essence bosses there’s going to be requirements from everything we’ve gone over so far to wear the gear. The 3 requirements are souls task completions, raid completions (keys used on chest), and total essence conversions. We’re going to break down each essence boss and it’s corresponding gear set one by one with its requirements below.

Raids2 completions will be needed as a requirement to attack and wear new gear from frost knights/mage/ranger as well as sacred bosses moving forward.
