Equipment is one of the most important things that you will need as you reach higher levels. Equipment, commonly called "eq", includes weapons, armor, and other items that you can use in the game. A good place to start looking for equipment is in the various shops in your hometown, and also the donation room near the town's cathedral. You can find even more powerful equipment throughout the different zones in the game. You can type EQUIPMENT (or just eq) to see a list of the eq you are currently using. You can also hold spare eq and items in your inventory. When you see an item on the ground in a room, you can try to pick it up by typing GET <item>. Once an item is in your inventory, you can use the WEAR, WIELD, HOLD, or other commands to use the item, depending on the type of item you have. To see a list of items you are carrying in your inventory, just type INVENTORY, or inv for short.
