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 (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 combat is the latest addition to the Combat skills area.

Take advantage of the large damage output from bows and arrows, as well as the inclusion of ranged armour that can assist with your combat.

Ranged combat requires a bow and arrows. Be sure to pay attention to your ammo so you do not get caught out.


Fletching is a very simple skill. Currently, its sole purpose is to provide you with bow and arrow creation.

A simple, yet fast skill to train.


Crafting provides the option to create ranged armour, as well as put your gems to use in creating combat rings and 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.
