From Melvor Idle

Alpha v0.08 (29th October 2019)

Welcome to the next major update for Melvor Idle! This update brings along a three new skills for you to train, as well as some other additions and changes throughout the game.

The next update, Alpha v0.09, will have a focus on Combat.svg Combat (you can see a little teaser in the Combat Area selector).

Let's take a look at what has been added into the game.


Ranged (skill).svg Ranged combat is the latest addition to the Combat.svg Combat skills area.

Take advantage of the large damage output from Normal Longbow (item).svg bows and Steel Arrows (item).svg arrows, as well as the inclusion of Leather Body (item).svg ranged armour that can assist with your combat.

Ranged (skill).svg Ranged combat requires a Normal Longbow (item).svg bow and Steel Arrows (item).svg arrows. Be sure to pay attention to your ammo so you do not get caught out.


Fletching (skill).svg Fletching is a very simple skill. Currently, its sole purpose is to provide you with Normal Longbow (item).svg bow and Steel Arrows (item).svg arrow creation.

A simple, yet fast skill to train.


Crafting (skill).svg Crafting provides the option to create Leather Body (item).svg ranged armour, as well as put your Emerald (item).svg gems to use in creating combat Gold Emerald Ring (item).svg rings and Gold Emerald Necklace (item).svg necklaces.

This isn't the fastest skill to train, but the benefits provided by the equipment you can craft makes it something to pay attention to.
