FAQ development thread


#1

Ok, I guess I will start the thread up.  Let’s see if I can remember what questions came up early on.

Q: Why does it say I still have to complete a quest even though I just finished it?

A: If you quit the game without re-entering a town, then the game did not save your completion data.  Re-enter towns to mark your savepoints.  

Q: Do starters spawn in the wild?

A: Yes?  Maybe?

Q:  Why did Monster X get XP when I didn’t even use it in battle?

A: A number of Arkadions use abilities (Blood Magic, Devour, Throw, ??)  that use another Arkadion from your lineup.  In such cases, those Arkadions are “involved” in battle and gain XP.

Q:  Whoa, how did I get a bonus action?   Or, WOW, I got three bonus actions in a row, what’s up with that?

A:  Bonus action chances are determined by the grade of your monster.  S has the best chance followed by A, then B, and on down.

That’s all I can think of for now.

I´m gonna need a grammar nazi and someone with good english to correct and possibly change the sentences for the better.

Some of these questions are for “dummies”, but there´s always some who can´t find out things for themselves.

Also more suggestions and question are welcome. :slight_smile:

A: I am pretty sure the answer is no.

 

 

Q: I got a new device, can I copy my save data over to it and have it work?

A: No idea.


#5

I doubt transfering will work because I don´t think the game is connected to the cloud. Think that would increase the number of cheaters and also make you able to “trade” monsters.


#6

Well, this may suck if and when I upgrade my phone.  What if you restore from a backup to a new device?  I think that’s what I did last time.  Can’t remember what it did to my games.  Many of them stored server side anyway.


#7

So when you make a backup on icloud, and make a new device use that back up on initial set up, all save files will be transferred.


#8

Ok, cool.  Same goes for a backup to a PC I suppose?


#9

Oh the cloud…where was this five years ago?


#10

Yeah exact same thing.


#11

It was still but a mist rising up from the evaporated bits dropped on the floor by all the iBeer apps.  


#12

Would be nice if all the new beta testers could write their questions in this topic to make the FAQ more complete(FAQ above if you just scrolled through it). Thank you!

I know my english ain´t perfect, so if you don´t understand… ask any of us and we´ll explain it better. :slight_smile:


#13

what are those arrows on top of stat boosts in Ocarina list screen was one question I got asked!


#14

Actualy I never got those figured out myself. :wink:

EDIT: Until now! Faq updated with additional questions. 17/9


#15

How about someone with good english help with the spelling and sentence build on the FAQ? Game is out and so should the FAQ be. :slight_smile:


#16

I’ll get it posted in ten
