What do I do in Hordes.io?
Hordes io is a MMO game where players can move, attack nearly anything that moves, gather gold and loot, join or create clans, and socialize in global and clan chat. Creating a character to begin your journey in Hordes.io requires you to pick a class and a faction. That’s it!
Pick a class and fraction
From the main menu, you can select either Archer, Mage, Warrior, or Shaman. Each of these character classes have unique abilities and traits. The archer is a pvp-heavy class, the mage is a group battle class, the warrior is a tank, and the shaman provides the healing support.
You have the option of selecting either Vanguard or Bloodlust. Those are the two player factions.
Your faction will determine which players you can attack (opposite faction), which clans you can join (same faction), and which areas your character will spawn into the game. Once you have chosen a faction, the decision cannot be reversed for that character. You are free to make separate characters that are of a different faction.
To move your character, press the WASD. You can change your vantage point by holding down a mouse click and dragging the mouse across the screen. You can also hold both mouse buttons to move forward.
Targeting and attacking
You can click on an enemy and press one of the attack buttons (1,2,3,4 depending on your class). Alternatively, you can auto-target by either selecting the desired ability key or pressing the TAB key before an ability key.
