Hints are the short informational texts that appear at the bottom of the screen during loading screens.

List of Hints[]

Each hint has several properties to determine whether it will appear:

  • Weight, which is the chance the hint has to appear - higher weight means higher chance.
  • Min and Max Level, which are the levels a player must be in between to see a hint.
  • Case, which is a special requirement a small number of hints need to be seen.
