1. Choose The Right Class
There are dour distinct classes to choose from before you begin your adventure in the world of Dark Domain. Each of these classes are basic ones and you have played some RPGs before, then you should already have an idea about their strengths and roles in combat. As you will be spending some time fulfilling quests on your own, you might initially consider a class better suited for solo play. As there are various game modes in Dark Domain that call for a team composed of varying classes and roles, you should also take team play into consideration.
The warrior is your most basic melee powerhouse class with the best defensive stats in the game. As the typical designated tank in team play, warriors are the class to pick if you enjoy being at the frontlines of your team. In solo play, the warrior is perhaps the easiest to manage and can stand very well on his own without support from others.
If you enjoy being a magic-user that holds the top spot for AoE and burst damage as well as crowd control, then the mage is the best choice for you. The mage naturally has lower defensive capabilities than the rest of the bunch but taking down mobs fast, especially in team dungeons, makes this class someone to be always welcomed to the party on any team battle.
If you enjoy PvP and aims to spend a lot of time on it in-between your quests and adventures, then you may want to consider choosing the Assassin as your class. The assassin is the more offensive melee class in the game and has the best mobility. Although not as sturdy as the warrior, the assassin can deal a lot more damage on a single target and even mobs of monsters.
Last but not the least is the ranger class that sports the longest range in combat. Rangers also excel in dealing AoE damage and can down several foes from a good distance. While rangers don’t have good defensive stats like the mage, being able to set up traps and having a little more mobility is a plus for its more defensive plays.
2. Prioritize Accomplishing Main Quests
Like many MMORPGs that hold a story mode of sorts, Dark Domain’s story progresses through the main quest lines that you will begin to take on as you jump into the game. With auto mode to automatically walk you through one location to the next, as well as instantly take control of your character through the many battles within the main quests, it’s relatively an easy feat to accomplish.
As main quests will be your primary source of experience points to level up your character, as well as equipment and other items to further boost your power, it is only rational to push through with it ahead of everything else in the game. Progress in the main quest lines also unlock additional features in the game which you should prioritize to grow stronger a lot faster. The only impediment relative to engaging further through the quests is the minimum level requirements you will encounter from time to time and in such cases, there are many extra game modes and sub-quests to revel in to quickly raise your character’s level and proceed back to completing the next main quests.
One great game mechanic in Dark Domain is that it makes it simple and easy for you to continue enhancing and upgrading your character while you are proceeding with the quests. New, stronger equipment will pop up on your screen and you can instantly equip each of them with a click of a button. Similarly, any such enhancements that can be done will also be vividly seen at the right side of your screen and you can quickly made any enhancements without interrupting auto mode whether you are running from one location or area to another or engaging to eliminate mobs and bosses.
3. Equip And Enhance Your Skills
Following an increase in your level as you complete quests and earn additional experience points from each battle you engage in, you will be able to level up the skills that you have. Initially, you will have 3 different skills for your class but after switch 2, which is the second class upgrade, you will unlock 2 more skills. Once you do, you should click on the skill icon at the lower left side of your screen and customize the deployed skills which you will use in battle. You can only have 3 deployed skills at a time so choose wisely.
Levelling up skills only consume gold but as you earn tons of gold in the game, you will keep running out of it fast as there are numerous upgrades requiring its consumption. IF you rely on auto mode for the most part of your gameplay, then simply choose to level up all skills automatically. This option upgrades skills equally and as auto mode uses whichever deployed skill becomes available, this will be aptly beneficial. If you are up for manual play, then manually upgrade skills and prioritize the one that you rely on the most.
There are also numerous passive skills that you can unlock as you progress through the game and complete certain quest lines. These skills provide buffs and level up boosts that will tremendously increase your CP once unlocked. Be sure to look into these skills from time to time and try to discover how to unlock them following the description along with the available quests you currently have.
Dark Domain isn’t all about fighting and battles and you will soon be able to unlock and use non-battle skills called life skills. Skills such as fishing and cooking will help you obtain additional items and each attempt at using these skills contribute to increasing their proficiency levels. You can likewise make use of these skills on auto mode so be sure to check these out on idle times.
4. Always Enhance Your Gears
Following your character’s level and skills, the next source of CP boost you will have is through the numerous equipment you will acquire from time to time as you progress through the game. Gears have varying rarity levels but Dark Domain makes it easy enough for you to switch to better pieces of gear by making new and better ones appear on your screen as you acquire them. You can easily upgrade each equipped piece of gear at the cost of gold, but then you will most certainly never have enough gold to upgrade all of it at once.
You can never go wrong with gear enhancement as the enhancement stays on even after you replace the piece of equipment with a better one. As such, you have the liberty of enhancing whichever you like the most to the fullest. To ensure you get the most CP boost out of the gold you spend, though, be sure to balance upgrades as evenly across your equipment as you can.
Depending on equipment grade as well as availability of gems, each piece of equipment you have can be embedded with unique gems to further boost the stats they provide you. There are numerous quests and events to gather gems from and you will certainly have more than enough of it in no time. There’s also no need to worry about not embedding the best gems available as helpful indicators will be visible once better gems get added to your inventory.
Equipped gears can have additional stat boosts added into them through rarefy and will take some buffs from unused pieces of equipment to transfer to the new pieces of gear. Take note that this process can only be activated 3 times per piece opf equipment and will dissolve the equipment from which the buff was taken from. This can be done automatically and will be prompted whenever you equip a new piece of equipment.
Relative to equipment, you can also dispose of obsolete pieces of gears through smelting. You can do this by clicking on the bag icon just at the left side of the chat box, and click on the smelt button at the gear tab. You can choose the quality of gears you will smelt and each one successfully disposed of turns to experience points for your furnace. For each level your furnace gains, more stats will be added to your character that will consequently boost your CP as well.

Beyond the conventional weapon and armor you equip your character with, Dark Domain provides you with companions that not only serve as visual additives, but also contribute to your character’s strength and overall combat power. These companions come in the forms or mounts, pets, and spirits and bundled up with this group of enhancements are wings that practically serve the same purpose.
It will take a certain level that you need to meet before you unlock each of the above enhancements but with auto mode enabled, in combination with some dedicated time on the game, you will certainly be able to unlock all these on your first day. Each one can be upgraded provided that you have the necessary upgrade materials for each level. Quests and events provide you a lot of the necessary materials you will need for each upgrade and in the event that you lack some and want to gather additional ones, you can click on the needed item and proceed directly to the source of that material.
