Finding Safe Zones

There are several ways in which you can heal, you can use bandages, eat certain foods, or use life potions which can either be bought or crafted.
Make sure your are careful when fighting enemies as some of them are capable of dealing massive damage and healing is very slow. It is therefore advised that whenever possible you make use of dodges to avoid their attacks. If you cannot get out of the way in time you will need to block the attack.

Various types of weapons can either be purchased from city merchants or found by exploring the game world. Try to check every available weapon so that you always have the best weapon with you.
