Well, this is my first instructable, so don't be hatin'.
First off, Roblox is a fun online building/fighting game that you can play with over 9 Million Online other people. Just go to Roblox.com and check it out.
Second off, this if focusing on the FIGHTING part of Roblox. I might make Building guides later.
So, If you think you're ready, then it's time to start your journey down the long path of a sword-fighter.
Step 1: Section One: the Swords
Possibly the most important aspect of Sword-Fighting: the sword.
On Roblox, there are TONS of swords. This instructable only shows the most commonly found ones.
Step 2: The Normal Sword
Self-Reliance at it's best.
The original sword, no extra power, set at medium reach, with absolutely NO tweaks.
Need I say more?
Step 3: The Ice Dagger
The Ice-Dagger is a wake-up call to EVERYONE that touches it.
It's a mean, lean, one-hit kill machine, which is why newer players turn to it so much.
But, as a pro or a regular member, it's great if you find yourself cornered/surrounded, even though afterwards you'll hear the inevitable "ICE NOOB!!"
But the Ice Dagger does have a deadly weakness...
Step 4: The Venomshank
This sword, overall, is very nice.
I'll just put the pros in list form.
1: It's big.
2: It does good damage.
3: If your opponent gets away from you, don't worry, it poisons whoever touches it.
4: Unlike the Ice Dagger, this sword is generally accepted.
Step 5: The Firebrand
Yay, the Firebrand!
This is probably my most favorite sword, but the Darkheart is pretty good too.
Anyways, I'm going to list the pros, again.
1: It's big:
2: (VERY Handy!) Is INVINCIBLE against the Ice Dagger.
3: It does a bit more damage than the regular sword.
Step 6: The Ghostwalker
Ah, the Ghostwalker.
This sword is pretty powerful, but it has it's ups and downs.
1: You can jump pretty high with it.
2: Every time you kill someone with it, you become slightly more invisible.
1: When you lunge with it, it causes you to jump, which is NOT good.
Step 7: The Darkheart
First off- This sword rocks.
Second off- It's VERY popular with Pros.
Third off- It's VERY powerful.
And, lastly, for every health-point you take away, you gain a health point with this sword.
Step 8: The Windforce
This is basically a beefed up Ice Dagger, AND it's probably the most common sword amongst regular players.
Basically, it does about double damage and sends your opponent flying.
It's disliked by pros for the same reason the Ice Dagger is disliked: Whoever uses it barely has to do any work.
Step 9: The Illumina
Unfortunately, this is our last sword.
It's basically just a sparkly normal sword that does about twice as much damage.
Step 10: Section 2: Helpful Power-Ups
This section is just a collection of common power-ups.
Step 11: The Force-Field Thingy (?)
This is a magical ball that gives you a forcefield for a limited time.
I don't know it's name.
It's symbol is a circle with a plus in it.
Step 12: Jet Boots
Need I explain?...
(No picture taken)
Step 13: Med-Pack
Pick up, save for later, click, and be healed by the almighty spirits of... stuff.
Step 14: Shadowsphere
Grab this, click, and you turn invisible for a little bit!
Step 15: Battle Armor
Bump into this and double your health. :D
Step 16: Epilogue 1: Moonwalking
This is a glitch, but a very nice one.
Hold a sword, zoom in all the way, and you can move in ANY direction, but you'll still be facing the same way.
The only downside is that people can sneak up on you.
Step 17: Epilogue 2: Good Maps
These maps are good for beginning sword-fighters.
