How to equip armour and weapons in Roblox Legends Re:Written
To equip armour and weapons in Legends Re:Written, you need to press the Menu button (press M) and then select Inventory. Click on your chosen weapon or armour, and then select the Right Hand or Left Hand option, if it’s a weapon.
As you get more weapons by defeating enemies, opening chests, and buying them from the Blacksmith, they’ll be added to your inventory. You’ll only be able to equip a ranged or melee weapon at one time, but you can freely swap between them in the Menu as you travel around the Legends Re:Written map.
Before heading out, roll for a Blessing
When you start up a game of Legends Re:Written, you can roll for a Blessing which will offer additional power to your character. To do this, go to the Menu (press M) and then to the Magic tab. Click on Roll to randomise your Blessing.
You’ll get three rolls for free. So, after each roll result, click on the image, read the details, and decide if it’s a good Blessing to keep. Then, click the image of the Blessing again on its profile and select Equip. Once it is bound to your hot bar, you can press 5 to equip the Blessing, and then Left-Click to use the Blessing.
Best build for a beginner to Legends Re:Written
As you would assume, your options and funds are limited at the start of Legends Re:Written, but you have just enough to set yourself up for success in the open world. Start by rolling for a Blessing, and then equip a weapon.
You begin the game with the basic form of each weapon type. Of these, equip the Oak Bow and your 300 Bronze Arrows. Most enemies in the nearby area are slow and weak, so you can use your faster foot speed and range to kill enemies and get gold. Better still, bows aren’t dependant on stamina, unlike melee weapons.
As soon as you have 150 gold, return to the starting area to buy and equip a horse. As you can use your bow while riding a horse, and the horse is fast, you can both explore the open-world quickly to find chests and defeat enemies from a safe distance.
With a horse and a bow, you can easily get acquainted with the map, defeat enemies, and collect lots of gold and items. Caution is the best way to approach any combat situation while your health level remains low. Once you’ve stacked some more gold, purchase armour, and then buy better weapons.
With these Legends Re:Written controls and tips for beginners, you can set about levelling up, defeating the foes of the wild, and even taking on the bosses that spawn on the map.
