You start of choosing your character jobs. Either going for a warrior which has a lot of strength that can be useful for equipping bunch of item at the start. A Mage, which is useful for a long ranged attack by using his wand, a Thief that is pretty nimble and could go around quickly or just a simple hunter that uses arrow and stuff.

After Picking your job you will see 5 button beside your character and maps. The clock is useful when you wanted to skip a turn. Lens for finding and searching for something. The Question mark is for examining things, bag is for bag. And the last one, arrow is for throwing at the enemies. You can also change the last one by holding it and changing the selected items.
