Part of the appeal of some old school games was figuring things our for yourselves. We like that and we feel that modern games are often too restrictive in guiding us through. Younger generations grew up with many such games so it's understandable that many players may feel totally lost and may think that the lack of direction in LoD is an error. Legends of Dawn by design is open and doesn't guide you much so it may not be the perfect game for inpatient players.
We wrote the Manual which you can find on Legends of Dawn Steam site, on the right side, button "View the manual". Please read it. It will help you get going. You'll find a lot of answers to the questions being posted here. Unless you prefer finding the answers thorugh the community in which case, have a fun.
Some things are harder to figure out even with the manual so we'll keep listening how to improve it ot how to add some helpers within game.
