When can I leave Rookgaard and can I return there once I have entered the main continent?
You may leave Rookgaard as soon as you have reached level 8. To do so, go to the oracle in the village. Please note that you must leave Rookgaard with level 8 or 9. If you continue levelling up your character on Rookgaard, you cannot leave for the main continent unless your character dies often enough until it has the required level.
If you leave Rookgaard with level 9 or have left it with an even higher level in the past, you will find that you gain fewer hit points, mana, skills etc. than you would have received if you had left Rookgaard with level 8. These reduced values will not
It is impossible to return to Rookgaard unless a character dies often enough so that the level is reduced to 5. If this happens, characters are reset. This means they will reappear on the beginner's island with level 1. They will lose all of their equipment and carried items as well as any levels, skills, spells, quest flags and the money in their bank account. Premium Scrolls, however, will stay in a character's purse and will not be deleted. Further, a character will keep all its achievements. Also, all items stored in depots will not be deleted. Characters can get them once they have left Rookgaard.
