Help - really noobish ? about context menus

    Okay, I have stuff on my great beetle, and I need to tithe with my paladin... the problem is, I can't figure out how to get that context menu! All of the guides assume you already know how, and I can't find a single idiots-guide to "hey, to tithe, do this to the ankh." It just says, "use the context menu"

    I've left clicked, I've right clicked, I've dragged, I've doube left clicked, I've double right clicked. And nothing gives me a way to get stuff off my beetle, OR tithe.

    Can someone give me a braindead explanation of what I'm doing wrong, here? Assume I know nothing. Because apparently, I don't.
     
  2. you must be within a tile of an anhk. Click the ankh and the menu is there. If tithe option is NOT lit, you are too far away. Just about any ankh will do ... shrines, the New Haven one and maybe a couple others around.

    In 2D, context menus are brought up by single clicking on the target.

    Non-human mobs typically don't have a context menu, unless associated with a quest.

    Human mobs will have at least the "open paperdoll" option. Many will also have the ability to train your character in low-level skills (you select "train" line for the skill, they say how much gold it will cost to train you (typically 1 gold per 0.1 skill), then you drop the gold on them for the training. A few of the "old-school quests" (that don't use the quest system introduced with Mondain's Legacy) also work this way, and if you have one of those quests active, their quest log and the ability to abandon that quest will be in the context menu you get for CLICKING YOURSELF.

    In addition to the old-school quest commands, several important commands are also in your character's own context menu - things like Insurance commands, and marking items as quest items.

    The context menu for pets will give you clickable versions of the vocal orders one can give pets, plus the ability to transfer or release a pet (unless you tamed that beetle yourself, that's how someone gave it to you). If they have the ability to carry cargo, the context menu will also have a line "open backpack", which you click to open the pack.

    For other players, the context menu will have the open paperdoll, and the ability to ask them if they wish to party with you, if not already in a party. The person who starts a party is the only one that can kick a person out the same way, other than the person themself, and once there are 2 or more people in a party, only the party starter can invite more people in.


    ***

    In Kingdom reborn, things are similar, except that you have to bring up a bar for the target (dragging or clicking on them - I think the latter works best), and then you click on the BAR to bring up the context menu (not the character).
