5 things every Elements player should know
..but most of them have never heard of


1# Elements Trainer
Elements Trainer is an awesome tool that you can use to test out decks without losing all your money. It looks just like the regular game, only difference being that there is a button that gives you unlimited money!

You can also get any number of rare weapon cards by clicking "All Quests" multiple times.

*Update*
There's now an "All Cards" button in trainer which will give you all the cards in the game.

So before you sell or your cards so that you can build that awesome new deck idea of yours, go to Trainer to test it out. This way you won't lose tons of money like I did when I first started and didn't know Trainer existed.

You can find the Trainer here: http://www.elementsthegame.com/trainer




2# Weekly PvP Tournaments
Elements community arranges weekly PvP tournaments every Saturday night. These tournaments are free and open to everyone. All you need to do is go to the tournament forum section and sign in by replying to the thread.

There are tournaments with unupgraded cards, upgraded cards, and special rules. All tournaments are sponsored by game Lead Developer Mr. Zanzarino, and prizes include money and rare cards.

Link to tournament pages: http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/board,77.0.html


3# Spectator Mode
Spectator mode lets you watch PvP matches in real time. All you need to do is to insert the names of the players and you will be taken to a special Spectator screen. Alternatively you can choose active matches from the list on the right.

There is actually a link to this on the main game page but still a lot of people don't know it even exists.

Go to spectator mode here: http://www.elementsthegame.com/spectate.html


4# Elements Statistics
This website is a great tool for players who want to keep track of the effectiveness of their False God deck. You will be able to add battle results against the False Gods within a specified deck and then have access to statistics about wins and losses, including winning rate. You will be to get those statistics to an unique link also, to share with others or in the Elements Forum.

You can find Elements Statistics under "Resources" in main navigation, or you can use the direct link.

5# PvP desync bug (aka "hacker" bug)
This is a bug that sometimes happens in PvP when you and your opponent lose connection between each other. Both you and you opponent start playing the AI and both of you will suddenly see weird things happening on the screen.

What makes this bug nasty is that it looks exactly like the other person is hacking. This is what you might see:

- opponent gets suddenly healed
- creatures pop out of nowhere
- creatures get healed
- creatures get resurrected
etc.

Basically all kinds of weird things will happen, and all of which look like the opponent is hacking. But he's not. Like I said, it's a PvP desync bug.

Developers are fixing this bug as we speak. If you want to help, please use this thread: http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,2221.0.html

Thank you.

Good comprehensive list. I would add the Wiki to this list if it had more room. :P Number 5 definitely needs to be publicized more.

Wiki is the first link on the game page. Most people actually visit the Wiki first, and then come here.

That current Wiki is really outdated. I need to do the new Wiki as soon as possible, especially the PvP part of it.

One thing I would add about the trainer is how to get multiple rare weapons.
Some people do not know you can press the 'all quests' button multiple times to get 2 eternitys, 6 eagle eyes, or whatever they want, and the fact these are missing from the bazaar is a bit confusing.
May the force of the D4HK side be with U ^_^

Yes, that's a good point. I'll add it.

wow...somehow missed this, though i thought i looked at all the tutorials...

personally, i think this thread should be linked on the main elements page. i'm not really one to check out wikis that often, and i don't usually check forums unless i'm really vested in a game. however, if something says 'Newbie Tutorial/5 Important Things To Know About Elements' or something catchy, i'd be more apt to check it out.

btw, i checked out (roughly in this order):
Kongregate Chat
Game Rules
FAQ
Comments/Q&A
Forum
In Development
Wiki


I would suggest putting links to some important pages on the Game Rules page, maybe the wiki, forum, this thread, other newbie threads, etc. and label them to point out further why newbies should check them out. just a short list & description, just one line each, would have helped me to find early help when i actually needed it, instead of now when it's more like 'yeah, found that out on accident already'

just my 2 cents, hope it helps

also, it might be a good idea to get input from other people of what helped them most, and what they would have liked to know most at the start, so that we can better help newbies who don't get on forums or wiki. after all, they still help the game grow, even though they don't say anything here
