Thread: New to K&D

  1. #1

    New to K&D

    So I'm new to K&D. Was a big fan of Monster Quest for quite a while but GREE(D) set in and every event started costing way too much way too fast.

    In MQ the game seamed favorable for those who "camped", leveled up iph (income per hour) and held off on quests for as long as possible, and built an extremely strong army at lower levels and slowly leveled up as you continued to increase your army strength as much as possible.

    Is it the same way here in K&D? Since I'm a patient person and my natural instinct is to "camp" and I want to be as strong as I can at my current level, Is there any advantage to "camping" and refrain from doing quests while I build up my iph? If so, whats a good iph before I start questing? I'm currently lvl 3 and have a training grounds aleady and am 1/2 way to my second one. Should I just keep building training grounds and unlock every land upgrade before I start to level/quest ? Or is there no advantage what so to "camp" in K&D ? I see arena is unlocked at level 5.

    I see posts about veteran players not accepting friends unless they are high level or have full nemesis armor. Care to explain what this Nemesis armor is and how do you obtain it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just started playing about 10 days & I am on level 68. Don't really understand camping... But I reckon the higher level u are the better. More HP, better stats. There isn't any penalty for being high level. Seems like the stats growth for characters stops @ 100.

    Instead of leveling, I think the more impt question is what armor are u crafting & what is worth leveling. I think from the threads u can see that I ask a lot of questions on those...

    U need to gain access to new level to get the better type of armor, & leveling just made things faster since your health is being restore & u can gain more materials.

    The lands in the middle of the game cost like $500,000 so if u r low level, I think farming is really boring.. Especially waiting for money to grow...

    There are boss every week giving new legendary armor. To give people added incentive to spend money, there is an armor that is a nemesis to the boss. ( higher damage output, lower damage receive, easier to level it fully)

    A new boss means a new type of armor, the trend is that they are getting more powerful then the standard 1s that u can craft.

    Hope I help.. I am still pretty new myself

    Above all, welcome to the K&D. I would glad to see your code starts with XBC not XBB, which shows that the number of players are increasing significantly.

    For the developing in K&D, I would say the way or methods are vary. You can follow the quest and develop smoothly, or you can focus on one specific aspect, such as unlock all spots first etc.

    For your question about friends and nemesis. I would say the slots are limit, thus people may tend to choose the stronger player as ally to help them reach their goal. Nothing Personal.
    The nemesis is the Unique armor which best against the weekly epic boss, not only against it on the element, but also gives 3x extra damage, that's why people must have one to clear all stages and gain enough material to craft the boss armor.
    The only way of gaining nemesis is to open dark prince chest, you may not get what you want, just pure luck. So do not try at beginning, it would be appropriate if you reach lv70+ and have many strong allies with nemesis, then you can open chest try your luck, gain one and fight with your friends.

    Feel free to ask any question, our forum member would glad to provide the solution.

    Enjoy the game, good luck

    When you have higher rarity armor, these basic armor can be as material to enhance your great armor, makes it more powerful than before
    Basic armor is the fastest and most expensive way of enhancement, especially use them on upgrading lv70 armors.
    However, it does really good in the beginning of each armor enhancement.

    Kemble - good to see you here, I'm burning through my last gems in MQ too, and then am playing for free - can usually complete basic quests (if not heroic mode) on there for free.

    In K&D it seems to be quite the opposite of normal Gree games - to be really competitive in the arena, against bosses and to beat the PvE enemies you need to have strong stats which come from (a) strong armour, (b) being higher level.

    Level:
    With each level that you gain you increase your attack, defence and HP, for both your main knight (you) and your party of knights. You also increase the maximum number of armour slots and the maximum number of friends you can have (more on this later).

    Armour:
    Armour come in three main forms:
    - 30 level armour - this is basic armour, it can be crafted using your armour-smith from materials found in all maps, both the more advanced materials (like stone slabs) and the basic materials (like stone shards).
    - 50 level armour – more advanced armour that can be crafted using boss loot from higher level maps or can be fused from basic elements.
    - 70 level armour – the most advanced armour, can sometimes be crafted (especially from beat the boss events), or found in Dark Price Chests.

    Enhancing armour:
    The higher the level of your armour the slower upgrading will be. Upgrading a level 60/70 armour will require considerably more resources than a 10/70. When upgrading armour, you get faster upgrades from using higher quality armour (so enhancing a 1/70 armour with a 1/50 will upgrade it more than a 1/30). You also get a bonus for using armour of shared element.

    Friends
    These are especially important for beating bosses and completing some high level maps – the mid-to-high levels of the boss will be nearly impossible without strong friends, the higher your level, the more friend “slots” you have, and so the more likely you will be to have friends with nemesis armour (3x damage vs. the boss) or high level friends with the “strong against” element.
    Having some weak friends can also help in PvP tournaments as they get you extra tournament points.

    Armour Slots
    You gain these as you level up – you will need a lot of these especially when crafting new armour that you want to upgrade as far as possible immediately, a low level player has less slots, so can stock pile less armour.

    This is a very quick run through but touches upon some of the main points of K&D – there’s a lot more info on the forums and a very useful spread sheet here:

    Its all about timing when your HP recovers and fighting the right stages that will maximize your EXP. It may be tempting to try and clear high levels. However, if you are unable to kill the boss in one run and wanna wait for your HP to recover before continuing off from where you left off, you end up wasting the HP of your other unused knights. The ideal scenario is that all your knights are able to kill the normal monsters in 1 hit and the boss in 2 hits (1 normal, 1 special attack) Also, when you are close to leveling up, you don't have to wait until your HP fully recovers. Just go and kill some monsters. Im pretty sure Harvey or any other fast levelers will share my sentiments.

    Exacting as dream explain. Maximizing all your knights + farming will surely ensure your level going up fast, I usually only open a new stage when I am about to level up... This ensure I can whack the boss & make sure I kill it... Then I go back to farming for snakeskins.. Haha..
