Tips and Tricks
The following are tips and tricks which can help assist players:
- If your stats are lacking and you have plateaued at a particular quest, consider doing an expedition with the characters you are using. Go to the expeditions screen and then enter those 5 units into that expedition. Then, use your skip tickets to finish the expedition. Doing so will grant those characters additional stat bonuses to their HP, attack and etc. Rinse and repeat until you have exhausted your tickets or feel that your stats are now sufficient.
- Be sure to roll at least once a day. You have a free single roll every day.
- The EXP dungeon and the Money dungeons are available 2x per day. They can be found in the third quest tab. Being defeated in these dungeons will not count as an attempt.
- When you lose and/or are defeated, you will only lose 2 of the energy you spent on the quest.
