Can someone please help out a noob?

I am a level 4 and the enemies I keep having to fight just keep getting tougher and tougher. I just ran into a level 11 enemy and barely beat him.

On occasion, I will run into a really high level enemy, like a level 100 dragon. Is this the way it's supposed to work?

Also, how often should I be upgrading my weapons and armor? I am a level 4 and haven't bought any new weapons or armor yet because I barely have any money.

Practice with the training bot in the Hideout as much as you can. It's very important that you master parrying if you want to defend yourself in IB. Don't use Dual weapons just yet because those require dodging which also must be gotten used to.

Know your enemy. Before any fight, check their info in the ! button. It tells what elements they use, and what they can defend against. But at your level I suppose you don't encounter enemy with elemental attack yet. Don't worry about the dragon, you can't kill her in one go.

For another source of chips and gold, play the online Clashmobs, Trials and Tournaments.

Training bot???? Haven't seen that!

I actually switched to dual blade as I prefer them! Always seem to parry better... I am level 5/6.

Thanks. Got another noob question. I feel like I'm not taking advantage of moments when my enemy is dazed and I can attack. Basically, all I do is swipe left and right over and over again until they block. Is that what I'm supposed to do? Does swiping in other directions do different attacks? Also, once they block, is that it for the attacks I can do until they are dazed again or are there any offensive moves I can perform?

Also, how do I heal during battles?

Also, what is the number underneath the amount of cash I've earned? It has a diamond shape next to it and it's been stuck on 80 forever.

When enemy is Dazed, that is your opening for an attack. Depending on your weapon class (Light, Heavy, Duals) you can create sequences that can lead to combo finishers which deal more damage. If you are just hitting left-right sequences without triggering a combo, i would assume you are using a Heavy weapon. The basic combo for heavy weapon is to swipe twice in the same direction, and and then a third swipe which follows the arrow shown. Other classes have different combos.

Once your window for attack (daze) is done, you have to play defensive again until you cause a break (break=daze) in which case you have opening for attacks again.

An exception to that is when you use the stun attack which is the button that fills up on the upper left side of the screen. It fills up the more you take and deal damage.

Another exception is when you cast a spell, using the button on the upper right. You fill up the spell gauge over time automatically (rate is based on your Magic stat).

Spells can range from making the enemy animation slow, have them deal less damage, dealing elemental damage, and some heals.

You'll need the appropriate Rings that have the spells to cast those spells.

So for you heal question, you'll need any of the rings that cast either Defend, Heal or Holy, then in battle you need a full Spell gauge, then tap the Spell button to initiate casting, then draw the appropriate rune to cast your spell.

The number under the money are the secondary currency. You earn them by completing missions (the challenges that you see on the enemy stat screen before you fight them, which you can also find in the pause menu), by fighting in the arena, by doing clash mobs or events, or by fighting and winning in deathless mode.
