Byond Game: Dragon Warrior: Hero's Destiny Guide

Yet another guide for a byond game. Hub page can be located here.

This game is very similar to Shadows of Erdrick 2 with the same story and quests, with just a few minor exceptions. Therefore, you can use the SoE2 guide for an explanation on skills, quest location help and even use the maps with most of the same accuracy, just the maps will be in 16bit instead of 8bit like this game is.

PERSONALITY INFO
In the game, you can find books to change you character's personality, which influence its stat growth. Each class has its own normal stat growth while personalities add AND subtract from them. Everyone starts out as ordinary, which simply has no affect to your character's normal stat growth.

Example:
Say you are a wizard, and gain about 1 (str)ength, 3 (agi)lity, 5 (int)elligence,  3 (vit)ality, and 3 luck on average for each level up.
You then change your personality to Smart (-1 str, +3 int, -1 luck). 
Next level up, you're less likely to get any str, normal agility, up to perhaps 8 int, normal vitality, and a little less luck (or on average, 0 str, 3 agi, 8 int, 3 vit, 2 luck).

Try to find the personality that fits you best, or perhaps average out your stats to be well rounded.
Personality = Common | Personality = Rare | Personality = Rare with no drawbacks!

Goof Off
The Goof-Off is generally the master of disaster... and distraction! All of its skills tend to lean towards making the enemy lose a turn. Whenever it attacks normally, it has a fair chance to end up goofing off instead. Luckily, skills, parrying, psyching, and items will always work as commanded.

GOOF ANTICS
As the goof levels, their pool of goofs expands, and some even disappear (presumably, the less useful ones)
[Goof] just sits there thinking - Wastes the user's turn. Eventually disappears
[Goof] goes to pinch someone. [Target] is pinched./is not pinched. - If the target is pinched, they get distracted for an unknown amount of turns (anywhere from the end of current turn to... who knows). The target can be anyone from monsters to the goof's party members, to even the goof themselves!
[Goof] goes to grab someone - If successful, either spins the target around, which may (or may not) cause it to attack itself or its allies, OR will simply grab the target, causing it to possibly to be distracted for awhile.
[Goof] gets in [Monster]'s way - Doesn't appear to do much, but annoy a target; presumably taunts the target into attacking the goof.
[Goof] makes a silly joke - Distracts the enemy, sometimes for multiple turns.
[Goof] kicks up some sand - Blinds the enemy, reducing their accuracy; similar to the SURROUND spell.
[Goof] Starts to goof off but decides to attack - Attacks an enemy for less attack power, but appears to be a defense-ignoring move, including against metals.
[Goof] drops a rock on [Monster]'s foot for [X] points of damage! - Inflicts weaker, flat-rate damage on an enemy.
[Goof] trips and throws their weapon with great force - Does defense-piercing damage to a single enemy, including through metals. More damage than the 'start to goof but decides to attack' goof.
[Goof] throws a boomerang - Hits all enemies like a boomerang.
[Goof] starts to sing - Raises the defense of the party, similar to INCREASE.
[Goof] starts to juggle balls. [Goof] loses control of the balls and they fly all over the place. - Randomly hurts ANYONE in battle, sometimes multiple times.

DROPS LIST
The way the drop system work is monsters have three sorts of drops: common (50%), uncommon (30%), and rare (20%). These %s are what you have a chance of getting IF the game warrants a drop for you. Base % of drops is 5%. Your luck can help increase the drop rate. For every 20 luck, you get +1% chance to drop. However, this only applies to players and not their mercs.

You can further increase this by being a thief. Thieves have a natural +5% chance drop bonus if you are playing one. Partying other players also helps increase the drop rate for you all by a flat 4% per actual player.

For a quick run down:
Non-thief player by themselves or with merc = minimum drop rate 5%
Thief player playing by themselves: 10% minimum
Non-Thief with 3 other players = 17% minimum
Thief player with 3 other players = 22% minimum

  1. Azurus here.

    Pro strats mentioned for higher level of game play will be posted here in the comments.

    1st things first, you will want to search every piece of furniture that can be interacted with, basic Dragon Warrior Stuff, remember it, you will reap many benefits.

    2nd thing, this is a highly technical and has to with the way stats and level ups work. First thing to note is that there is a system in place that guarantees you to have an average of your level up gains as stats at "average" x "levels gained"
    Easiest example is pilgrim who gets 2-4 in all stats except luck making their average "3". You will notice after a while they will always gain 3 stats every level because their level ups have been awful. So at around level 19, they will have 54's across the board with a slight chance of having more, in any 1 stat. This sounds good on paper to prevent you from having a terrible character, but what it doesn't take into account is seeds and items that raise the 4 core stats of Strength, Agility, Vitality, and Intelligence. If you use a seed of strength on the pilgrim in the previous example, and gain 2 points strength, your total is 56! Awesome right? Not really, as next level up, the system will see you have higher than average stats, and you are more likely to end up with a 2 in strength increase on your level up (the minimum they can gain) and have 58 strength, where as if you just waited, you would have gained 3 or 4 strength on the level up ending up with 57 or 58 strength, and you can use the seed and add the 2 we got from it's last use, and be at 59 or 60. Equipment works like this too, except you can un-equip it and regain the lost stats because you are at less than minimum for the level you are at.
    In other words, hold off on using seeds that affect core stats until the end of a game, or only use them on a character who can gain strong stat ups, like soldier who can get up to 6 per level.
    Life Force Nuts and Mystic Acorns and Seeds of Luck are unaffected by this rule of minimums.

    TL:DR don't bother using agi or str seeds, as your level ups will suffer for it, same with stat raising equipment, don't have it equipped on a level up or your level ups will suffer.

    3rd Pro strat. Stealing, if you can afford to do it, always have a character who can steal, especially in boss encounters and mimic, man eater, cannibox encounters. The items stolen off these critters are very valuable and range from magic potions to leaves of the world tree or even stat seeds. You can steal only once, but a death allows a 2nd chance if you have already succeeded. (Do note, that abuse of the death and stealing may be patched in a future update, so avoid abusing it as it could be a bug and unintentional.)

  2. *continued due to length*

    4th pro strat. DO NOT DIE AS A LEADER/PC follower. As doing so will end yor adventure and your mercs will dead. So, when deciding on a personality book or a class to pick, keep in your mind that having a high vitality will be very beneficial as dying=party wipe.

    5th Pro Strat (may be changed at a later date.) Damage scaling.
    PC's get damage scaling from higher intelligence, Mercenaries do not get this benefit. This is a simple strat, and not really a strat but advice. It deserves to be mentioned.

    6th pro strat. Mercenaries will gain exp even in the wagon, and will not level up until they have won a battle. This is great if you want to hold off and give them a book to raise their stat gains in a stat you care about, so if you want the best gains on a merc, keep them wagoned.

    7th pro strat. Books for stat changes. Due to the rule of minimums in mentioned in rule 2, books with negative gains will not hurt you much at all, it will keep you closer to your minimums, but will never put you under, so pilgrims will benefit the most from any book they recieve, while not being negatively affected in almost any way.
    Rather, if you have a book penalizing a stat that your class is bad in, around 0-2 a level, you will not even notice the penalty and just get the bonus of the book.

    More to come later as I remember, hope this helps someone.
