As mentioned above, the way to revive after KO is to use the Return option in the main menu. Sometime when I die, it actually says in the chat menu to use the return feature, but not all the time (idk why). Also if you use the Return function when you arne't dead, you can teleport back to your last spawn camp at a cost of 2 anima instead of 4 anima.
Also when you are talking to comeone via tell, once you /t "name" the first time, pressing CTRL+R will automatically fill it in again for another message to the same person.
In regards to stats:
•Vitality: Defense + HP
•Mind: Magic Defense + MP
•Intelligence: Magic attack
•Piety: Magic accuracy
