The Bloodline – Beginners Tips


  • Tab – Quick menu
  • CAPSlock – Quick Skill menu
  • T – Sheathe/Unsheathe weapon
  • Z key – Quickslot menu
  • R key – potion inventory
  • F key – Use grappling hook
  • E/Q key – when grappled, climb up or slide down the rope
  • N key – Spontaneous Ragdoll (it is a skill and it does damage to enemies and not you!)
  • X – Sneak; ? is hidden, ! means you’ve been seen.
  • U – Quicksave


  • There are no plans for multiplayer features at this time. Couch coop/split-screen is a possibility, but is not a priority.
  • Talk with Geoffrey to receive your first mount! You can summon it through the inventory, by clicking on the lion’s head icon.
  • To read a Runeword you must be sitting first.
  • Resources can be gathered from glowing nodes around most non-city zones. You will have to use a bit of common sense to locate them (the best mining probably isn’t in a marsh, and you might not find many trees in a mountain gulley).
  • You do not need any tools to harvest common resources (i.e. a pickaxe to mine, an axe to chop wood) you just need to activate the resource node with your interaction button of choice, the default is ‘E’.
  • Wood bundles are not currently in the game.
  • While walking in the overworld, If you press the MMB on the title of a location of interest, you can see if you have active quests in that area.
  • To climb, you need to have no weapon equipped: approach a wall, sheathe your weapon with ‘T’ and then press space while holding ‘W’.
  • To leave the overworld map, you need to “camp” (middle button) in an area, or press “E” if you’re near a village/city.
  • Pressing F (Swing) while grappled, will launch your character in the direction you are looking (Unless the grapple is below you, then you will be pulled towards your grapple point)! So if you’re climbing up the rope, and you look up and press F, you’ll launch yourself upwards and you can land on the ledge!

I appreciate your time and hope this little tutorial was helpful.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
