From Melvor Idle

Alpha v0.05 (21st September 2019)

Welcome to Alpha v0.05 - The Combat.svg Combat Update!

This update introduces Combat.svg Combat - a brand new addition to Melvor Idle that will serve as one of the biggest areas of the game for player to indulge.

FIRSTLY - I'd like to put out a HUGE thank you to everyone who is playing this game, and also interacting with the subreddit & community to help find bugs and request additions to the game. It is so amazing to see a lot of you genuinely enjoying this game, and it makes me excited for what's to come.

Let's get into the updates :)


There are 4 combat skills to train that aid you in battle in various ways:

Attack (skill).svg Attack - Responsible for your chance to hit, as well as what tier of weapons you can equip.
Strength (skill).svg Strength - Higher level = bigger hits ;).
Defence (skill).svg Defence - Responsible for your chance to dodge, as well as what tier of armour you can equip.
Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints - Level up to increase maximum HP.
These skills can be trained by selecting their respective attack type in the combat screen. Some attack types are better than others for certain weapons. Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoint XP is earned no matter what style of combat you choose.

There are various areas for you to enter and face enemies. Each area provides a recommended level before entering, so you don't get surprised if you are face-rolled.

Combat is automated for the most part. When you begin battle, you and the enemy's attacks are based on the combat statistics shown in the combat screen. Attacks are performed when the progress bar is at full, based on your attack speed.

Attack Speed is determined by the weapon you equip.

Armour and Weapons

These can be equipped from the option in the Bank when selecting the item. Upon equipping, the item will be removed from your bank and will be placed into your equipment slot (viewed in the Combat Area). If you wish the unequip anything, you can click it in the combat screen to remove it.


Crab (item).svg Food is setup based on an Equip system, just like armour and weapons. There are 3 Crab (item).svg Food slots to use in combat. Each slot can fit an unlimited amount of food. Food can be equipped from the options in the Bank.


If you die, there is a chance you will lose an item you have equipped. The more items you have equipped, the more chance there is of losing one.


Upon killing an enemy, they will drop loot which can be collected by clicking on it. There are only 8 loot slots. Once the limit is reached, the oldest loot will start to disappear if not collected. If you die, the loot also disappears.

Now on to the actual changelog!
