Kill Monsters to get Experience Points [XP], once you have enough XP, you will level up. Leveling up gives you more health, attack, and defense but not all the time you need good equipment.
Items will be dropped from Monsters. The higher level the monster the better the item drops are, however, be careful. Some monsters are too high level for you and might kill you faster than you can drink your health potions. Items can be bought from the Shop Keepers, if at a higher price than can they would be obtained for through mob-grinding.
Once you die your level will be reduced by one unless you are at level one. Alongside this, you will lose 25% of your fame. Note that fame is what defines your position on the leader board, not level.
You can add Weapons/Health Potions onto your hot bar to quickly swap between items. This will be helpful in fighting high-level mobs.
Note that when drinking potions while fighting Monsters, there will be a pause in attacking while you drink. This delay also applies to block, if you have a shield equipped.
