A Open Inventory

A Open Inventory

The inventory consists of 300 slots the player can scroll through, used for melee weapons, ranged weapons, armor, artifacts, and cosmetics. When the inventory contains at least 270 items, a message stating the slots in use appears at the bottom of the screen. The low capacity message disappears if the amount of items lowers and the inventory is re-opened.


Main article: MCD:Weapon

Weapons are used to attack and defeat mobs in Missions. You get a Sword for melee and a Bow for ranged upon starting the game, or when you had no weapons equipped in those slots.
