Killerdog's guides


Quick Intro

Hey there, my name is Chris Marlow (aka KD or Killerdog) and I’ve been playing Neo Monsters since August 2016. I was looking for a game like Pokemon and ended up downloading this. I soon realised it wasn’t anything like Pokemon, it’s so much more! I’ve been a keen Magic the Gathering (card game) player since the age of 10 and feel that NM is very similar in many ways. What I love most about NM is the complicated, strategic combat that gets me thinking more intensely than any other game. I’m into hardcore, tough games but I’ve never come across a game that I can’t multi-task while playing… I can’t even hold a conversation while playing PvP in Neo Monsters!

Writing guides for the games I love has become a big hobby of mine these past years. I actually took up the position of moderator here for the sole purpose of gaining the extra forum abilities to more easily create guides. I’ve been around on the forum here for a while so you’ll probably know how much I like to analyse things and discuss them. These guides are the true product of my analysis, in a format which hopefully can help a lot of other players enjoy the game as much as I do. I also like to make YouTube videos for the games I enjoy, so if you’re interested in checking those out then subscribe to my channel. I don’t post all of them here in the forum.

I hope that there’s lots of information here that interests you. Some of my guides become out of date as time goes on since so many things change but I do my best to adapt them. This thread here is a catalogue of all the guides I’ve created here on the forum as well as particular ones I think are worth reading. If you have any suggestions for guides or want to propose alterations then please use my feedback thread linked at the bottom.

Core Game Aspects

These guides attempt to give you all the information you might want to know about particular parts of the game. They give the raw data rather than including lots of opinionated comments or advice.

Mythic monster movesets - (details the moveset changes/additions to mythics when awoken)

Advice and opinionated topics

These guides go into details which are subjective or otherwise too complicated to define for certain. They’re hopefully a good source of information to base your own opinion on or otherwise blindly follow and be successful. If you have your own strong opinions I don’t expect you to agree with everything written and, depending on the thread, I may or may not be incorporating multiple opinions on the topic.

Neo Monsters current tier list - (a ranking of all the monsters in the game for both general PvE and PvP)
New Players Guide - (a guide for brand new players to help them navigate the game)

Efficiency tips

These guides are a breakdown of how you can use the resources in the game most efficiently. They contain a lot of opinionated statements that you may not agree with (we all play the game differently) but it’s good to hear another’s perspective sometimes in order to get the best possible strategy for yourself. I try to stick to mathematical analysis as best I can, while making it possible to read as a non-mathematical person (look for summary sections if that’s you)!

Egg drop rates analysis (with tips) - (a mathematical comparison between some of the best eggs available)

Content tips
