It takes a good while to get fully acclimated with all the dungeons, monsters, items etc. that make up the bulk of this title. These 10 tips and cheats will push you towards an easier path through the game's biggest obstacles.
1. Use These Beginner Tips to Get Yourself Acquainted with the Puzzle & Dragons
Modojo.com has a few beginner tips that should get you familiar with Puzzle & Dragons' many mechanics:
- Match three or more orbs of the same color in a row vertically or horizontally.
- There are five attributes. Fire, Water and Wood works like Rock, Paper and Scissors, while Light and Dark are vulnerable to one another.
- You can recover HP (hit points) by matching heal orbs.
- A turn is used each time you move an orb.
- Enemy monsters will attack you after a certain number of turns have passed.
- When there are a lot of enemies, match five orbs for a Mass Attack.
2. There Are Three Types of Dungeons You Need to Pay Attention To
There are three types of dungeons that make up the bulk of your adventuring. Normal Dungeons are...well, pretty normal. Each of those Normal Dungeons will include different tiers. The Special Dungeons focus on different types of legendary dragons that also have multiple tiers, such as the War Dragon and Sky Dragon. Special Dungeons also focus on daily dungeons, dragon dungeons and other dungeons that have different focuses (ex. Endless Corridors). As for Technical Dungeons, the monsters in these dungeons are able to use their Skills against you and your party.
3. Starter Tips for Players Who Want to Properly Utilize the Siren
iPhoneDevPinoy.com posted up some starter tips for players who want to get situated with the Siren they may have in their party:
You can upgrade the level of Siren's skill(Guard Stance - Water). Just stock up 5 Marine Goblin and use them as fusion material for your Siren, and you have pretty good chance to level up Siren's skill. The max level is 7 and then you can use it every 5 turns instead of 11. Marine Goblin is very easy to get in Sea Cave Mercury and Polar Night Tower. This is why Siren is a great monster for starters. With Siren's skill and other skills that can change heart orbs into other orbs, you can make great combo. I recommend farm for one no matter what color team you are planning to play.
4. Focus on Building Up Your RCV and HP Survivability
In order to have a completely balance team, don't upgrade your monsters' Attack power so much. It's nice to upgrade that attribute, but it's better to focus more on these two stats - RCV and HP. Your survival rate in those tougher dungeons will increase thanks to your focus on those monster statistics.
5. Take Over Half-Stamina Dungeons As Much As Possible
Farming those half-stamina dungeons will help you acquire a healthy amount of more money, EVO materials and Rank-Up opportunities. Hit these dungeons up at multiple intervals to get the upper hand in those harder dungeons.
6.KEEP THOSE DRAGON FRUITS!
Dragon Fruits are the equivalent of Pokemon's Rare Candy's. When you get your hands on some Dragon Fruit, you can use them as grub for your monsters. These pieces of fruit are worth 5000 EXP, so feed them to the monster's you're really trying to level up.
7. Here's How to Pass The Mask Dungeon Master Crawl
iPhoneDevPinoy.com also offered a few tips on completing the Mask Dungeon Master stage:
The requirement is that you should have Shiva(#236) or Shiva helper. in the first round, the monsters' attack is not too high. Just clear orbs which can not make attack to enemies. Do it again and again until the Shiva's active skill is ready. Then use the skill and finish the dungeon. Although Shiva's skill effect only one turn, you can still use it if you clear the enemies in one turn.
8. There's A Much Simpler Way to Down Those Metal/Gold Dragons
Those legendary Metal/Gold dragons can be a pin, but it's best to put them down with with poison attacks. The poison damage that will chip away at these dragons' health will make those encounters with them easier.
