|Desktop App||usually stable; may take a while to load/download files; almost instantaneous installment; can experience glitches and on some occasions, crash||might be lagging but can be quite stable||good if not, one of the best in terms of graphics||good, very easy to master|
|Steam||unstable to a degree; may take more time to load/download files than desktop and Microsoft App combined; slow/moderate installment; often glitchy, quite known for it||good and stable||good if not, one of the best in terms of graphics||good, very easy to master|

|good, the same as the Desktop app|
|Mobile App||stable; quite fast at loading/downloading files; moderate/fast installment although that depends on the mobile space; can experience glitches||good, one of the best in terms of MMO however, it displays lesser players||less quality, models are prone to have texture and/or model glitches or look outright wonky||harder to master, can be quite tank-ish and slippery all at once|
|FB Playroom||stable; quite fast at loading/downloading files; moderate/fast installment||really lagging||comparable to the desktop and steam versions; some graphics are updated with a delay with respect to other platforms||good, the same as the Desktop app|

Creating an accountEdit
To create an account, you first need to sign up on the website and Click "Create a Character & Play".
After clicking it, it will ask about your age (required) and where did you heard of it (optional). Selecting any age will always result in the page soft reloading.
After selecting the age and confirming, it will ask for your email, the username (this will be the account's username, not the actual viking's username) and the password. Wait for it to load and it will warn you that an activation email as been sent to your account - warning, if you don't activate the account within 60 days, it will be deleted.
Starting the gameEdit
After you created an account, activated it and clicked "Play Now", the first thing that will come up (after the downloading screen) is the interface to customize your Viking. Go to the page Creating a Character for more details on this step.
After this, you will start the first quest, The New Student, that works as a basic tutorial for the game, and will provide you with your first 2 dragons.
Be careful, when you first-time open the game, it opens with Full Screen on and, if too many things are open or if the computer isn't stable for the game, it can crash or, in very rare cases, prone to cause a blue screen.
