Dungeon Chronicle: Beginner's FAQs, Tips and Strategy Guide

The Aim of the Game


Defeat the Dungeon Keeper

   - Defeat to complete the floor.
   - To force him to appear, you need to defeat a number of monsters, so keep killing enemy mobs till the Keeper detects your presence.
   - He will spawn from the Guardian Statue's location.

Level Up and Upgrade Character
   - Customize your character to defeat higher floor keepers.

Collect Resources and Loots

   - Collect Gold and Gems, use them for upgrading or for purchasing items from the Shop.
   - Grab loots like Gears, Scrolls, Relics, and more.

Quick Equipment Guide


Armors and Accessories

   - For Weapons: Focus on DPS, refine stats that you want at later levels.
   - For Armors: Focus first on Total Defense regardless of their Level or Rarity, even if it has lower Attack Power.
   - For Rings, Amulets, and Wings: Focus on items with better stats.
   - Rarity: Higher Rarity has more bonus stats.

Which Weapon To Use?

   - You are free to use all types of weapons during battle, but for early game use the best weapon that you have for now until you can get the ideal weapon/s for your preferred skills.
   - Melee Weapons: Good for HP regeneration and faster HP per Hit.
   - Magic Type Weapons: Good for MP Regeneration and faster MP per Hit.

Set Gears and How to Upgrade


Activating Skill Bonuses
   - Collect a number of set items to activate the bonuses you like to use depending on your play style.
   - TIP: Keep all Set items per character type that you can (at least 1 copy per item).
Set Gears and How to Upgrade
Upgrading Set Items
   - Upgrade these Set Gears as you go by using Scrolls. Note that all gears including all set items that you have will automatically be upgraded by +1. This is the reason why you should keep your preferred set items.
   - Scrolls can be obtained by opening chests, breaking objects, or from monster drops.

Selling Unwanted Gears
   - Sell gears that you don't need, use the "Batch Sell" option to easily discard them.
   - Example: If all items inside the box have "red arrows", sell them all, but if you see some "green arrows (preferably Def for Armors and Atk for Weapons)", check it out and equip if you want.
   - The "Batch Sell" option will not include Set Items. Sell them manually if you have dupes, or need to sell some to increase inventory space.

Best Ways To Use Gold and Gems


How To Farm Fast Gold and Gems


Do Dungeon Keeper Runs
   - To farm Gold and Gems fast, defeat the highest floor Keeper that you can, then do
quick re-runs, just focus on clearing the floor. Gold and Gems will drop from the Keeper, and more once you enter the portal.
   - TIP: Higher floor levels will drop more Gold and Gems.

Selling Gears
   - Pick up all Rare to Legendary gears including Set items, then sell all that you don't need.
   - White gears are too common and will fill your inventory fast, returns aren't great too so better ignore them.

Use For Upgrading Set Items (Gold)

   - Your main focus is to upgrade your Set items using Scrolls at the Guardian Statue.
   - You'll need 3 Weapons Scrolls, or 6 Armor Scrolls.

How To Farm More Scrolls
   - Just keep on going and defeat monsters from higher floor levels. Drop rates increases as the difficulty increases.

Use to Buy Mercenaries (Gold)

   - Buy Mercenaries, and revive them with Gold if you want.
   - TIP: If you are just clearing easy floors, buy some of them to help you, but if you prefer clearing higher floors with higher difficulty, I would recommend ranged units because tankers can't tank, or just go solo without them since they are so easy to get killed anyway.

   - Level up to unlock more Mercenary slots.
   - Equip them via Mercenary tab: Combat = Equip Merc; Cancel Combat = Unequip Merc; Break Up =Discard Mercenary.

Use to Buy Wings (Gold)

   - All Wings increases Movement Speed by 20%.
   - Would recommend getting the Angel Wings because of the damage reduction stat, aim for at least 10%.

Use For Upgrading Skills (Gems)

   - Go for Decreased Cooldown and Energy first for your preferred skills.
   - TIP: Test them all out then select the ones that suits your playing style. Upgrading skills are easy anyway.
   - Once maxed, Go and max out next your Enhanced Defense stats, then the Enhanced Attack stats.

Best Ways To Use Rubies

Dungeon Chronicle Buy Costumes

Use them For Purchasing Premium Items:


Buy Costumes
   - Get this first to increase or get extra stats, especially Maximum Mana, Mana Recovery and more.
   - This would allow you to spam more skills.

Buy Advanced Wings
   - Buy wings with Defense to get the damage reduction stat.
   - Next, either go for HP Recovery on hit for more survivability, and/or Critical Ratio for increased crit rates best with Attack Speed/Critical Damage if available.

Buy Mercenaries
   - Only if you already have the above items.
   - TIP: Try their Gold versions first to find which ones are the best for your playing style.

Rewards, Battle Tips and Other Options


View Some Video Ads to Get Rewards:

   - Ruby Box: View ads to earn free Rubies (highly recommended).

   - Equipment Box: View ads to earn some free Epic and Legendary gears, nice for early game until you get better ones. Also best after reaching the highest floor that you can using the Challenge Mode.

   - Random Free Boost: View ads before entering the next floor to get some boost (optional).

   - Note: Rewards can only be obtained by watching video ads.
   - TIP: If you can only view a limited number of ads per day, better use them all for getting Rubies.

Quick Battle Tips


Keep Moving and Dodge Attacks
   - Note: This tip only applies when you are challenging higher floor levels with higher difficulty.
   - Dodge nasty traps and skills that can really give huge damages to your character and mercenaries!
   - Keep moving and use your escape skills to avoid them.
   - Using skills that will make your character immovable are not recommended against these attacks.
Dungeon Chronicle Luring Mobs
Lure Mobs
   - To get the most out of your AoE skills, lure them first then unleash massive combos!

Damage Bonus Against Stunned Enemies
   - Enemies that are stunned will get 20% more damage.
   - Note that Dungeon Keepers are immune to stun.

Boss Damage Immunity
   - If Boss monsters are immune to damages (orange barriers), don't spam your skills (except buffs, sentries and hydras), wait for it to disappear first.

Other Tips (Settings Menu)

   - Settings: Set Show Drop Items (Recommend turning off Normal).
   - Settings: Save your progress to the Game Cloud to avoid losing your character and items.
   - Note: If you delete the game without saving to the cloud, all data will be deleted!

Challenge Mode!


Best Time to Do Challenge Mode

   - Tap on the dual sword icon near your mini-map to enter Challenge Mode.
   - Best if monsters in your current floor can only do very minimal damages to your character
and easy to sustain with regeneration.
   - Do this right after entering any floor, advance by 5 floors for now to be safe, more if you
are confident that you can do it.
   - If you advanced too far and now having trouble, click on the Mini Map to select previous
floors.
   - Note: If your character dies, you will lose some Gold and Gems.

Challenge Mode: How to Survive Higher Floors

   - First, make sure you have decent gears, farm them from your current floor to get the best gears that you can. Also consider upgrading all other options you have like Skills.
   - Note: If you want to use your Set Items instead, upgrade them first using Scrolls before attempting higher Challenge Modes.

   - Once you enter the higher floors, do hit and run tactics, avoid getting mobbed (use dash to escape), dodge all nasty traps and skills, and buy some potions just in case.
   - TIP: If you are about to get killed, quickly tap on the Mini-Map to flee from that floor and go back to your original floor.

Challenge Mode: How to Level Up Fast

   - Just focus on killing enemies from higher floors to get higher Exp.
   - Defeating the Dungeon Keeper is optional, if it's still too strong, just continue and focus on leveling up by doing re-runs.
   - If this is too hard for you to do, farming Exp from your current floor will do just fine.
Dungeon Chronicle Farming Relics

Challenge Mode: Farming Relics

   - The more floors you challenge, the more Relics will drop from boss monsters (random).
   - TIP: Do not kill the Dungeon Keeper if you want to farm fast Relics, just defeat bosses that drops them then tap on the mini-map to exit the floor.

Challenge Mode: Boosting Gears

   - Note: Gears and Items will not drop from Challenge Mode. You need to defeat the Dungeon Keeper first before you can do floor re-runs and farm new gears at higher floors.

   - Once defeated, start by farming some Rare items at least (usually higher level gears are better). Equip them to boost your attack and defense.
   - Do re-runs using the Mini Map floor select to farm more (killing the floor Keeper is optional). If you are having trouble, try the lower floors for now.
   - TIP: If you are about to get killed, quickly tap on the Mini-Map to flee from that floor and try again.

Support Characters

   - DO NOT limit your team by only using high DPS units, also consider using Support units like Debuffers. Refer here for a list of Support Units.
   - Characters that focuses on inflicting status effects like Stuns are also effective as support/utility units, depending on your current character pool and/or battle situation.

Rankings Are Based On:

Lvl 80 Character Stats (Lvl 100 for Free Characters).
   - Note that Ranking Event limited characters will get higher stat bonuses than Gacha characters when limit breaking.

SS3 Attack Duration (Seconds):
   - SS3 Attack Duration in seconds (on-click until he/she can move again)
   - #.#sec* =  Average Time. Dual Wielders (and some units) will get Max/Min speed depending on combos (10~50) but will only consider their average speed and DPS.
   - (Hits/Sec) determines how fast they can generate combos "per target".

Ranking Event - Burst DPS:
   - Overall Damage Output/Sec (including buffs, defense debuffs, non-elemental damage multipliers, crit damage, and more). Tested on a null enemy (no elemental advantage) with same armor rating, without gears.
   - Combo Generation and "how easy" SS3s can be spammed will affect DPS Ratings.
   - Note: DPS rating may increase if used against their counter element.

Ranking Event - Mob Clearing:
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) and Speed.

Floor Clearing Event - Mob Clearing
   - Heavily based on their AoE Range (considering all skills) + Survival Capabilities without relying on Healers. Basically, units without any survivability skills, should be paired with Healers to increase/maintain their effectiveness.
   - Based on Floor 60 onwards mob difficulty.
   - Note: Rating may increase if used against their counter element.

Floor Clearing Event - vs Boss
   - Heavily based on their Damage Output (DPS will not be used here), Tankiness and Survival Capabilities. So, units with very high Damage Output with limited durability can still find their way to a decent rank, since we can still defeat Bosses by dodging attacks.
   - Based on Floor 60 onwards Boss difficulty.
   - Note: Rating may increase if used against their counter element. Units without any survivability skills, should be paired with Healers to increase/maintain their effectiveness.

Overall Rankings
   - Heavily based on DPS rating (Ranking Events) and Floor Clearing vs Boss (Damage Output and Survivability). So units without Self Healing or Auto-Heal are in a big disadvantage.
   - We will not consider Mob Clearing as ranking basis for now because it would be unfair for other limited ranged units.
   - NOTE: Support Units that can buff, debuff enemies, or heal your team won't affect their rankings for now, since these characters' effectiveness also depends on their teammates' strengths.

   - Please note that these Tier Lists are for reference only, ranking basis is a work in progress and will never be final. It's not 100% accurate, but we'll do our best to polish the guides.

Other Helpful Notes

Character Rankings: Order List

   - Ordered By: Category > Combo Generation (Hits/Sec) > Faster Weapon Type > Name
   - Characters under same rank are not always treated as on par, because they also have different roles, which will also require different playing styles.

Weapon Type Weaknesses (Floor Clearing Event)

   - To find which characters are effective to a certain floor, refer below.
   - Slash - Swords and Dual Blades
   - Effective against soft-bodied enemies such as Mantises, Slimes and Gerberas (plant monsters).
   - Not effective against tough-skinned enemies such as Lizardmen.
   - Strike - Mace and Guns
   - Effective against hard-bodied enemies such as Elementals and Skeletons.
   - Not effective against soft-bodied enemies such as Mantises, Slimes and Gerberas (plant monsters).
   - Thrust/Pierce - Rapiers, Lances, Daggers, and Bows.
   - Effective against tough-skinned enemies such as Lizardmen.
   - Not effective against hard-bodied enemies such as Elementals and Skeletons.
   - Magic - Rods
   - Deals more damage to a certain element than the usual elemental affinity bonus damage.

Elemental Bonuses and Weaknesses

   - Fire > Wind > Earth > Water > Fire (Holy < > Dark)
   - Note that some selected characters have a Battle Skill or Skill Slot that increases their damages against Neutral element enemies.
   - Element that is in disadvantage can only deal 75% damage, so also consider that unit's current DPS rank to go down.

Ragnarok Rush: Prontera Defense Guide, How to Defeat Octopus and Worm


Here's a guide on how to join teams and defeat Bosses like Nattegge, Evil Octopus, or Queen of Worm in Prontera Defense, in the RPG mobile game Ragnarok Rush. Available to download from the App Store and Google Play.

How to Join Prontera Defense?


Prontera Defense Time

   - Prontera Defense only opens a few hours every day (19:00~22:00 PST/PDT). For other time zones, refer here: Global Server Reset Time and Events

   - Join Prontera Defense as early as possible so that you can team up with more players, because once they are done with their runs, most of them will be AFK or doing other stuff.
   - Guild Wars is also in-line with Prontera Defense so during that time, you might see fewer players especially at higher difficulties.

Use Friends List or Join a Guild
   - Tip: This is where your friends list becomes very handy, so add friends that are active and can help you defeat Bosses. Invite them to your team, and also help them if you have the time.
   - This is also one of the perks of being in a guild, because you can ask them for help even against stronger bosses!
Ragnarok Rush: Prontera Defense Guide, How to Defeat Octopus

What is the Aim for this Mode?


Defeat Bosses

   - Defeat Bosses to get rare items that can be used to craft higher grade gears, or for upgrading your character and pets.
   - Defeating Bosses will also enable you to complete some Palace achievement quests.

Collect Friendship Coins and Rewards


Friendship Coins
   - You can only receive Friendship Coins up to 5 battles.
   - TIP: Your first 2 battles will always generate Double Friendship Coins, so make sure to win them to maximize your number of tries. Check the trick below to help you out.

Red Scale Shards and More Friendship Coins
   - Drawing from random rewards will net you some Friendship Coins, and it will get higher once you unlock more Bosses.
   - You can also obtain 2 Red Scale Shards (crafting material) every time you draw a random reward. Earn them too to easily craft Red Gears later on.

   - Note: You can only draw rewards 2 times per day.
   - Optional: Spend 100 Gems to draw another one (recommended from Nattegge onwards).

Rewards from Free Draws (x2)
   - For early game, just keep going until you can reach Dark Dales then start farming Gold Hammers, shards, potential points and more.
   - Optional: Spend 100 Diamonds to draw another one (recommended from Dark Dales or Nattegge onwards).
Ragnarok Rush Evil Octopus
   - Once you reach Evil Octopus and Queen of Worm, Gold Hammers will start to drop twice more, including a rare chance to obtain Oridecon Hammers for crafting red gears. Shards and Potential points are also higher here so it's really good to use Diamonds for more draws.
   - Higher bosses will generate even better rewards but it's harder to defeat, good luck!

Use Coins To Buy From Store


Early Game
   - Buy Gold Hammers for some early boost, but do not use all of your Coins, only buy what you need and if you have all the materials needed for crafting.

Mid to Late Game
   - Gold Hammers are pretty easy to drop from Nattegge onwards, so it's best to start using your Coins for farming Pet Shards. This is recommended especially when you are in a nice Guild that can generate Gold Hammers fast, lucky enough to draw from Faction War chests, or prefer buying Equipment Chests.

   - Pet Shards Quick Overview:
   - Gloom Under Night: Probably the easiest 18 Potential Pet to farm because it is also available from most shops. Nice for F2P players and for completing collections.
   - Dark Lord: Pretty good anti-tank Magic Caster, useful for Eden Group Missions and Guild Wars for example.
   - Shecil Demon: Needed to upgrade collections of pets like Gloom Under Night. Easy to complete, and also a nice pet to get early or mid game for physical based teams.

Prontera Defense Tips & Tricks


Trick to Maximize Number of Tries

   - TRICK: If your team is about to lose the battle, quickly force close the app to save your number of tries. Doing this trick will enable you to retry with another team or strategy without losing anything!
   - Note: Make sure that you force close the app right before the timer expires or when your last man standing is about to get killed, else this trick will not work.

Trick to Let All Skills Cooldown Before Fight

   - This might be a bug, but when one of your teammates is "lagging" at the very start of the battle, the game will pause and display "Waiting For Other Players". During this period though, all skills will continue to cooldown until all of them are ready to spam right from the start!

If We Lose, Are the Rewards The Same?

   - Nope your team will get a different set that is lower than what it should be if you won the battle.

   - The number of Friendship Points and Red Scale Shards per draw are the same though for that Boss stage.
   - Example: Still 14 Friendship Points + 2 Red Scale Shards for Octopus, and 16 Friendship Points + 2 Red Scale Shards for Worm.

How to Maximize My Tries and Rewards?

   - Here's what other players are doing:
   - Use all your 5 tries but always end the battle and never draw any rewards! You should still have 2 reward tries left. Next, do the method below.

Farm Without Using Tricks
   - Party up with other players, friends, or guildmates then attempt to defeat stronger Bosses for better rewards. If you lose, do not draw any rewards and only draw once you win.
   - This method is pretty good for serious farmers at higher difficulties, like teams that relies on RNG or critical damages to defeat stronger bosses like Evil Octopus and the Queen of Worm.

How to Defeat Bosses: Team Building Guide


Creating Teams: CP and Job Classes

   - When creating teams, always consider the CP and Job Class of your teammates.
   - If CP is too low they might get killed easily, and if your team is full of Tanks and Healers without DPS characters, damage output might not be strong enough to finish strong bosses.

How to Defeat Jay Bailey and Root of Fallen

   - Should be easy once unlocked.

Team Suggestions:
   - *Tank (30k+ CP) with 2 DPS (30k+CP)

How to Defeat Dark Dales

   - *Tank (60k+ CP) with 2 DPS (best 100k+ CP)

Team Suggestions:
   - *Tank (80k+ CP with decent Flee) with Healer (80k+ CP, best 130k+ CP) and DPS (best 130k+ CP).
   - Must spam skills, don't be lazy! Best if all have decent crit rates.

   - *Tank (100k+ CP, with decent Flee, best 5 Stars) with 2 DPS (130k+ CP)
   - *Any 3 units (130k~150k+ CP)

How to Defeat Evil Octopus

   - Every team must have a Assassin Cross (800k+ CP, with decent crit rate and MUST have the Legendary weapon Mysteltainn).
   - Check the "Unique" tab via equipment screen for more info on how to craft. Assassin Cross Legendary weapon will add Healing and Damage Reduction bonuses to Sonic Blow.
   - This is very important because Sinx will serve as your team's DPS and finisher. At higher CPs, SinX can solo Octopus.

(Assassin Cross with Legendary Weapon)

Team Suggestions:
   - *Assassin Cross (check reqs above) with a Tank (at least 200k+ CP) and Any character.
   - The best thing about having a strong SinX is that you can team up with any character even if they have way lower CP. The best character for boosting guildmates in Prontera Defense!

   - Add 1 or 2 Tanks: Would recommend adding 1 tank even with low CP. Primary focus it to reduce damages (active and passive skills) and tank for as long as possible. It is also a good idea to use 2 tanks, then let them alternately use Provoke and Grand Cross.
   - Note: High CP Sinx and Tank, with Legendary Weapons are more than enough for Octopus.

   - Add 1 Healer: Usually doesn't last long at lower CPs, but still a nice unit for helping low CP tanks survive longer.
   - Add 1 DPS: Usually doesn't last long at lower CPs, but the burst damages that they can make before they die is also pretty good.

How to Defeat Queen of Worm and Demon Hunter

   - Technically the same as above, you just need to increase CP, and a massive more for Demon Hunter.
   - Note: We were able to defeat Worm by just using 1M+ CP SinX with a Tank (200k+ CP) and DPS (200k+ CP), but it relied on crit rates, dodge, and RNG (luck). It became easier as we all get stronger, especially the tank.

How to Gather Ores?


Conquer Personal Mines

   - To increase Ore generation per hour, this is similar to Eden Group Mission stages where you need to clear enemy teams without controlling your units.
   - TIP: Before the Faction War opens, make sure that you have enough Energy to use, so that you can start clearing mines and earn quick Ores early on.
   - TIP: When entering a new mine the first time, take a screenshot of the enemy team and find a way to counter them with your current team and total CP.

Faction Bonus
   - Note: Players under the Rune Midgard Faction will get more ores/hour here.
   - Today's Effect: Combo with effects that increases ore generation from personal mines. Check the "Today's Effect" under the "Current Status" window.

Conquer World Mines

   - Conquer the World Mine (center), contains strong boss monsters, but doesn't have time limits once it is conquered.
   - Can be challenged after upgrading Faction Lvl to 5.
   - Also consumes attack points per attempt.
   - Other players may still challenge you though to take your place.

Faction Bonus
   - Note: Players under the Arunafeltz Faction will get more ores/hour when conquering external mines.
   - Today's Effect: Combo with effects that increases ore generation from external mines. Check the "Today's Effect" under the "Current Status" window.

Conquer Field Mines

   - Conquer Field Mines (around the World Mine). Similar to World Mines but boss monsters are a bit weaker and these Mines will disappear after some time.
   - Weaker bosses usually generates lower ores/hour (around 30~90).
   - Can be challenged after upgrading Faction Lvl to 5 and 7.
   - Also consumes attack points per attempt.
   - Other players may still challenge you though to take your place.
   - TIP: If you want to test if you can defeat these bosses, I would recommend only if you are done getting your target reward tier (check below for more info about rewards).

Faction Bonus
   - Note: Players under the Arunafeltz Faction will get more ores/hour when conquering external mines.
   - Today's Effect: Combo with effects that increases ore generation from external mines. Check the "Today's Effect" under the "Current Status" window.

Pillage Other Players

   - Earn more ores by pillaging other players outside your Faction.
   - Pillage amount depends on their current Ores, the higher the better, but make sure that you can defeat them by checking their team and total CPs.
   - Also consumes attack points per attempt.

Faction Bonus
   - Note: Players under the Schwarzwald Faction will get more ores per attack.
   - Today's Effect: Combo with effects that increases pillage count or amount (ex: Pillage amount +30% from 1st place) that you can get. Check the "Today's Effect" under the "Current Status" window or World Trend.

Attack Points and Attack Tips
   - Renews daily, unused points will not carry over to the next day.
   - Check this link for server and registration time: Global Server Reset Time and Events

   - TIP: If your Faction is ranked 1st, attack the 2nd ranking Faction to keep them low. This is best for close fights (points) where the strongest players are non-active ones. To check those who are active, go to the Personal Ranking list.
   - TIP: Some players will use their attack points right before the reset time to get maximum Ores, especially from non-active miners.

How to Increase Rewards?


Be Active and Donate!

   - Mine and pillage other players, maximize your Donations depending on your Ores/hour mining speed.
   - Example: Use x2 "3" Donation Points, or at least x1 "3" Donation Points and x1 "5" Donation Points per day.
   - For stronger players go for "2" Donation Points per day.

   - If you are teamed up with very strong and active allies, chances are, you won't even be able to use "3" Donation Points because they will keep on upgrading Faction Lvl thus increasing the required donations. In this case, just keep on donating at least x1 "5" Donation Points per day.

   - TIP: It is best to use your attack points when you think using them will hit your target Ore Donation. This will also avoid getting pillaged, because you can dispose all your Ores after hitting your target.

Choose a Tier and Aim for Those Rewards!

   - Battle rewards info can be viewed under the "Ranking" icon, click on the "Battle Reward" chest to view all tier rewards.
   - Select a tier, then at least aim for it's lowest requirement of Accumulated Donations (Personal Rank). As you grow stronger, aim for the higher ones.
Ragnarok Rush - Faction Wars Power Battle Rewards

Personal Rank
   - Win or lose, rewards will be given at the end of the week depending on your Personal Rank's accumulated donations.
   - It is considered lose if your Faction ranked 2nd or 3rd in Faction Wars.

Faction Rank
   - If your Faction ranked 1st, all Personal Rank rewards (not points) will get +50% bonus!
   - So if for example you are teamed up with very strong and active allies and can't increase your Personal Rank because of them, then no worries because you will also get the +50% bonus.

   - Most of the time, the Faction that can conquer the World Mines has the highest chance to win the war.

Faction Assets and Rewards!

   - Chance to drop from Mines (someone must occupy Field or World mines first). If you are lucky, you can sometimes team-up with a strong character that can occupy the World Mines or Field Mines at least.
Ragnarok Rush - Faction War Assets
   - Note: All chests from your Faction Assets can be opened by other players as well, so be quick. The first chest that you'll open is free, and the next ones will require some Diamonds (resets at server time).
   - I would highly recommend getting chests that contains crafting materials early game, aim for those hammers!
   - Today's Effect: Combo with effects that increases box drop rates by 10%. Check the "Today's Effect" under the "Current Status" window.
