When all else fails, we can do it ourselves.

Is that the place full of Harpys, High-Pixies and Sudamas (self-destructing Kodamas)? That's a good place to train...once you walk all the way over there XD (I gotta figure out those teleport thingers.) I also wish i knew what those plate badges were for before I sold them all -_- oh well, I guess I'm off to hunt some Cait Siths.

I feel you dude, I sold off mine as well. :blah:

It does have harpies, but none of that other stuff. The whole dungeon is easy but I can't kill the last boss to save my life. She and her minions seem strong to gun attacks :buh:

Edit: OH YEAH I FORGOT. I found out how to level kaja and kunda skill levels. You must first buy spell stones from the spellstore then use them till your skill hits level 1 at least, when you get your first spell. The store is represented by a fuzzy orb on your map and seems available only in cities. The ones you want are the black stones with the gold engravings. The triangular is sukunda, and the squarish one is sukukaja. I think they only affect crit ratings in this game.

You might already have noticed, but it seems there's an anti monopoly system in this game if you hunt in an area too intensively. When it kicks in, the total exp you get from each kill will decrement by 10% after every kill. At the end you get both no drops and no exp.

Well that's all well and fine, but it seems to act also when there's no other player around, which imo should be taken into consideration.

Also, I have found another dungeon in Shibuya, south of Shibuya Babel. It is called the Makai Ceru Tower and is literally filled with demons weak to gun. I had a happy, happy rifle that day. Oh, and it seems the silver and bronze plates you need to enter dungeons are unique to each, so you can't interchange plates.

roflao, I am afraid to say my Japanese has been somewhat overestimated. Most of the translations I make are derived from the IME pad and then plugged into http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/wwwjdic.cgi

I just completed the second year of my basic japanese course, but seriously, anyone can do that with a rudimentary knowledge of Japanese. I do recognise a few kanji since I have a background in Chinese, but the advantage is minimal.

Anyways, currently I'll be starting to save money for starting a klan to link up the english speaking community, though it will be a long time before that since it does cost a fair penny at 80k macca. We could start deciding on a name until then...

You should start by learning hiragana and katakana in that order. I find it quite favourable that a language like Japanese has an alphabet(Two at that) as it is highly useful in tackling kanji; unique characters that do are not constructed, but recalled word for word. Chinese only has hanji; thousands upon thousands of unique characters. Bitch to learn.
http://www.matsu-kaze.net/ <---- online learning resources
http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/wwwjdic.cgi <--- Online kanji lookup

My rare convos are also mostly restricted to emotes as well. I do have a tip though; use the bow emote often; bowing is an integral part of Japanese culture.

Dungeon plates are dropped by certain demons. I am quite sure puss in boots drops them periodically. You can also buy them from the shopkeeper at the start of the dungeon. Convenient.

The first group affects basic actions. They're listed from left to right. (This is under 'Self Actions')

1 - Sit or stand, the icon will change accordingly
2 - Autorun; when enabled your character will run in the direction he or she is facing until you press a different direction
3 - Enable/Disable click to move
4 - (I think this translates into 'Access' from 'akusesu'. Also, the description says it begins conversation with a target, however it's unusable under normal conditions so I am not sure what it does yet.)
5 - Call for help* (The description says this is basically an SOS command. I think this is usable in battle.)
6 - Reload* (Tops up your equipped bullet stack to 99 if you have extra in your inventory.)


The second group has to do with demons. (This translates into 'Partner Commands'.)

1 - Demon attack order*
2 - Demon hold position order*

3 - Control switch. This lets you switch controls between your character and your summoned demon. Upon clicking this, the camera will shift accordingly. This way you can make the demon go to specific places or enact specific commands.

(Switching between demon and PC can also be done with TAB. That's what I use since I do not have to allocate an action bar slot to the function this way.)


The third group affects your group status. (The heading translates into 'Communication' from 'komyunikeeshon'.)

1 - Trade*
2 - Party invite*
3 - Add friend*
4 - Blacklist* (This one seems unusable at the moment, but I think it is the squelch function.)


Third shop option is repair.

Second system option is log out to character screen. I suppose this is somewhat useless at the moment since we only have one character.

The exact level you start losing exp upon death is 10. The Japanese players refer to this is 'Death Points'.

And about that quest list I mentioned... it seems that quests are restricted to the newbie training quest you guys know about. I cannot seem to find any others in the towns are visit. I suppose this is because the game is still in beta. Will keep eyes open.

That's all for now. Next up we should start doing the learnable skills.

PS: This has got to be the best way to learn a language.

Glad to help. Damn, studying Japanese for fandom really pays off, this has got to be one of the best ways to study a language.

We should get together one day and raid the dungeons. They appear as D on the map and require either a bronze or silver plate to get in. With the plate in your inventory, talk to the dungeon entrance (In Sugnami, this is a monolith with glowing words on it). And you'll enter the dungeon when you confirm you want to enter.

The Sugnami dungeon can be soloed at level 13. I just did that, but not without dying multiple times, and the demons weren't even overtly aggressive. They seem somewhat beefed up, so overall I gained quite a lot of experience. It is obviously a party endeavor though.

Raiding it felt much like dungeon crawling in SMT. The art style seemed very much alike for one, with maze like routes you have to navigate. It is also made easier since there are resupply points after you clear a map.

Everything in the dungeon shop is useful. That black mass of cubes is actually a town portal spell that teleports you back to your home point amala drum. Buy many of these.

The band aids and blue topped bottles are for you, but the coloured orbs are for healing your demon's hp and mp. Just look for 'HP' and 'MP' and '回復' you'll be fine.

自分(jibun) = Self
仲魔(nakama) = Your demon

A really interesting play on words here. nakama(仲間) actually means comrade, but they replaced 間 with 魔(ma) usage in the game. This is not common usage at all, but very appropriate and means exactly the same thing.

Oh yeah, I started translating the information regarding the various demon cards we get when we defeat stuff. You know those Jack Frost pictures we pick up? Yes those are demon cards. I think you can exchange them for rewards if you turn them in in a set. Like Jack Frost and Jack Lantern makes a certain combo you can turn in. I am not really sure what combos are possible though.

Quote from: Stack Bundles
From the looks of things, you can only gain up to 10,000 skill points, not enough to max out every category, so you have to pick and choose what you want to learn. Having them all checked would  probably end up giving you nothing but a bunch of low level skills that are useless later on and with no hope of getting anything good.

Another skill related question, anyone know what the skill you learn after Dia does? It's icon is the purple spark with rings around it. It appears to be a stat booster, but it's not support magic, it's recovery.

One other thing, found out last night that the blue icons next to enemy health bars means you can recruit them, red icons means you can't.


This skill is posumudi (ポズムティ), cure poison spell. Useful in the forest east of Suginami, where those red wisps can cast poison on you. Pixie learns this I think.

The Red and Blue icons I think reflect whether or not the demon is higher level than you, because there are demons you cannot tame even though they are lower level than you. For instance, Slimes, since we can't speak their language. I think this is the same for the Garum and the Wisps. Their icons will be Blue but you cannot tame them unless you have the correct skill, which I do not know how to acquire yet.

Tony: Yes it is part of the language bar, under the drop down menu with the pencil cup icon, first option.

Though I am fluent with hiragana, katakana and some syntax, I actually know almost none of the kanji I translate beforehand. I use the ime pad and the online dictionary to look them up.

So basically, menus and stats are possible for me, but translating blocks of text full of kanji will be time consuming. I intend to at least do the beginning quest given to you by seneekuman(that eyepatch guy), but the visual cues given are quite sufficient imo.

I'll need someone to post screenies before I can do anything though, I've done the quest already. Maybe next time I'll try making a quest list, though I am not sure how many quests are ready in the beta.

PS: Registration accepts all lowercase usernames only. That caused me a headache for a while.
