What the hell is this?
Puzzle & Dragons is a game for Android and iPhone. It combines the gameplay of Bejeweled / Puzzle Quest with the monster collection / leveling / evolving component of games like pokemon. There are many monsters to collect.

Holy fuck that's awesome! How much does it cost?
It's free to download, install, and play. You can spend money on some features of the game, but that is not necessary.

Will it steal my soul?
Your soul shall remain intact, but your legs may go numb from the hours you unintentionally spend on the toilet leveling your pokeymans and grinding dungeons.

Are there any helpful links for this game?

    Skill works this way: If the skill is named EXACTLY the same, regardless of what the owner monster is it gives a chance to give a skill up. Skill level doesn't reset unless the name of the skill the monster has changes, in which case it resets.

    Leveling
    The best thing to do is to grind through to unlock the technical dungeons. The primary colors have these incredible monsters called the pengdra.
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=303
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=305
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=307

    What you want to do is in the bottom level in each tech dungeon (I can't remember the names off the top of my head right now but they're the first level in each color dungeon).

    Now here's the optimizing part.

    You know those cute chimera's you get in there? Yeah you want to level them to level 7-8. Which involves taking one of them and powering up on another. OR you could also take one of those cute carbuncles you get in there and toss it on the chimera. Then take that chimera that is level 7-8 and toss it on the pengdra which maxes the pengdra. Then toss them on to your monster of choice (make sure you toss the same color pengdra on the same color monster to get the best exp gain).

    This is good, but to make it even better you should evolve the pengdra (which evolves at a max level which is nice) which involves one dragon tail and two little jewel dragons of the same color. These are the best leveling critters next to the "king" jewel dragons. Unfortunately for those who are leveling white or black, they haven't released the tech dungeons with these little pengdras yet (these are coming out in the next patch at the end of March).

    "Ripper" Dragons
    Another hint is to use all your pal egg points right now and get the "ripper" dragons. These are great dragons that are 50% resist to the color they are at the max evolution.
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=21
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=24
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=27
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=30
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=33

    Plus at the max evolution they do an incredible damage attack.

    Skill Leveling
    If you want to obsess over something else you can also "level" your skills on each monster. They are the attacks or ability you use in each dungeon when the critter is flashing (attack, converting orbs, healing, etc.). What you have to do is to find another monster with the same skill name (they have to be exact) and power-up fuse them onto the monster you want. What this does is reduce the amount of turns it requires to use the skill. Leveling up the skill is about 1 in 10 or so according to the speculation of the internet, so there's that.

    Zombie group
    OH yes, Zombie groups! These are super useful for dungeons that have monsters that one shot you. Mostly the expert or master levels of the spirit daily dungeon (Friday's dungeon) and the mask dungeon (Wednesday's dungeon). You want to use an ogre (lower levels the better).
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=64
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=66 <- best one to optimize your combos.

    Or the Viper Orochi
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=134

    Why you want to use these? It is because of their leader ability. The ogres need 70% of your health while the Orochi needs 50% and the damage done to you doesn't kill you but leave you at 1 HP. Then you want to have a healer on the other side to heal you with one match to more than 70% of your health.

    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=202
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=203 <- best one to optimize your combos.
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=204

    Then for the rest of your team you want to use these little buggers.
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=152

    This is why I said to try and get green healers and ogre, this way you match one set of 3 green and hit the mask/spirits with 5 1's (the reason you are using this is because no matter how much damage you do to these higher masks and spirits all damage is reduced to 1).

    Now what you want to do is try to pray to the programmer of PaG that the random monster attackers do not have the same timer to attack you. If they do then you need to focus on one and kill it quick. Then you want to play around trying to make your screen have a green layout like this before going.

    GXXXXG
    XXXXXX
    XXGGXX
    GGXXGG
    GGXXGG

    Where G - Green Orb and X is anything.

    This way the next round of monsters you can just drop the top G orbs straight down each turn and hit 5x's then move the middle G orbs to the left then right and have 4 straight attacks which will kill off one at least in 4 rounds (which is before one kills you).

    Now a great twist on this tactic is to remove one of those "tailless dragon seeds" and swap in a lilith.

    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=96
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=97
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=205

    To use this tactic you need to match enough orbs in the first or second round without killing the spirits/masks to get Lilith skill ready to use. Then use her poison skill on the last round spirits/masks to one shot them. The more you have in your team the better since if you have 3 in your group then you really have it easy since you can blow through the tougher rounds of spirits/masks.

    A twist to the zombie group
    There is a nice skill in this one critter.
    http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=236

    Skill: The Third Eye
    Effects: Void enemies' DEF during one turn
    ( Reduce Enemies Def to 0 for 1 turn; Effects carry forward on sweep )

    The carry forward is the part that is useful. Just make sure you kill the monsters before they hit you and you're golden. You can take any monsters with you and don't have to worry about the zombie group.

    Spending Magic Stones
    Magic Stones are the "real" currency for P&D. Be careful, because like most "free to play games" I've read posts of people who've dropped hundreds of dollars buying stones. Fortunately you do earn stones for first-time clears of dungeons, and Gung Ho often gives away free stones as part of certain promotions or celebrations. Right now its their 1st year anniversary so they've been giving a way 1 free stone a day.

    So, as you accumulate stones, what do you use them for? A few things, actually:
    Full Refill of your Stamina Bar
    A "continue" in a dungeon after you've been killed
    Buy 5 more monster boxes
    Spend 5 stones to pull a random monster from the rare gacha

    Let's talk about each one.

    Refilling your stamina seems like a waste, but careful use of this option can pay big dividends. First, the obvious use would be to take full advantage of limited time dungeons. Gold Dragon dungeons, for example, are 24 hour dungeons like the Metal Dragons, but they're far, far more rare. They're also worth a ton of XP and gold. There's also a more long-term use of buying stamina.

    You may have noticed that when you level up you'll earn either more "monster points" (each monster is worth a certain amount of points, with more powerful ones costing more, you can't field a team of super monsters until you're very high level), a new friend slot, or an increase in your max stamina. Some dungeons, when cleared, give you more experience than others. Prioritizing those dungeons can help you level up faster, thereby increasing your max stamina, thereby allowing you to naturally run dungeons more often, which gives you more experience and monsters.

    Continuing in a dungeon should be done very rarely. It's way to easy to burn stones this way. Only consider continuing if 1) you got a very rare or needed drop earlier in the dungeon and you don't want to lose it and 2) you're pretty confident you can clear the rest of the dungeon. Say, if you're going to kill the last boss in only 2 more turns? Good use! The boss wipes the floor with you and you barely put a dent in him? Maybe come back later.

    Buying more monster boxes is a must. Space this out with other uses of your stones. Simply put, you're going to get more monsters and you're going to need somewhere to put them all. Even worse, to evolve many of your more powerful monsters you'll need very rare Evo materials, like dubmythlits or mystic masks. When you get these drops you'll want to hold on to them for the future, which can fill up your storage pretty quickly. Try not to be too much of a hoarder though, sell or fuse crappy monsters you don't need or use - don't obsess over "catching them all." They'll all be recorded in your Monster Book anyways (under the Others option).

    Rolling for more monsters in the rare gacha is the MOST DANGEROUS part of using stones, because you are LITERALLY "chasing the dragon." You can earn Super Rare 5 star or even 6 star monsters in the gacha, and some of the most powerful and useful monsters can only be obtained through the rare gacha. Very Tempting! But, you can also pull shitty 3 star monsters that you can find as regular drops in the dungeons. In fact, I'd say that's what you're more likely to pull. So, what to do?

    Horde your stones and wait for special "rare gacha" events. Gung Ho tweaks the drop rates on certain monsters to coincide with certain holidays, events, or seasons. Keep an eye out for "god fests" ultra-special events where god monsters (the most powerful of all the monsters) are more likely to drop.

    Sharing Your Level 20 Gift
    When you hit level 20 you get 1 free special friend pull you can gift to someone else. Both you and the person you gift get one pull on this special gacha. I highly suggest trading your pulls with someone else in this community, that way you're both guaranteed to get 2 pulls!

    Get a Healer
    You're not going to get far in the game without a good healer. The "sisters" as they're called, have high recovery and useful abilities. The dark and red healers aren't really healers, but have very useful abilities. Lilith (as Betsuni mentioned) is a hard counter to "high DEF, low HP" monsters like masks. Echidna has an ability that pushes back the turn of monsters, which can be a life-saver in certain situations. The other healers, Siren, Alraune, and Angel are more conventional healers. Of these three, try to get your hands on a Siren, or make friends with one. Why?

    The leader skill of all three - Rondo of Healing, automatically heals you for 3x their RCV stat anytime you make a match. Very useful! In fact, only the god Amaterasu Ohkami has a better ability (her's heals for 5x her RCV). But, all 3 have different active skills, and Sirens is the best. She turns red gems into heal gems, which can be saved on your board for emergencies - unlike Angel and Alraune, who are 1 time heals. Siren's ability is also super easy to level up. Marine Goblins share her ability, and there's a ton of those things in the mid-level water dungeons, just keep feeding her goblins until she maxes out her skill and you can use it every 5 matches.

    Most Valuable Monsters
    Some monsters are more valuable than others, in fact some are mandatory for beating the higher end dungeons. Keep an eye out for these.
    Healers - Amaterasu Ohkami, Siren the Enchanter
    Big Damage - Ancient Dragon Knight (2.5 damage for dragons, double on leader + friend on a ripper team for huge damage)
    All Around Boost - Lakshmi, Pavarti (like the ADK, but includes health and recovery, for water and earth monsters respectively)
    Def Breaker - Shiva
    Zombie Team - Orochi, Gigas, or an ogre
    High Def Team - Green Odin (there's a blue Odin and green one. With green Odin as a leader, when your health is full, all damage is reduced by 80%! That's only for the first hit though [since the second hit comes when you're not at 100% health]. An alternative to the Zombie team that allows you to field more powerful monsters.

    The simplest explanation is as follows - if you have a mob type with the number of stars indicated below, only level them until they reach the level in column 3 - after that you start getting diminishing returns on feeding them. Also, always feed from the bottom up to maximize the XP potential.
    Stars / Monster / Max level for feeding efficiency / exp @max / Arbitrary max feed-to-level (1gold/exp after 1.5X bonus)

    Hera Strat
    38thDoe wrote: »
    I'll give you four:
    If you have Amaterasu or Green Odin you can 0 stone her easily by getting your hp over 16.5k and Amaterasu recovery over 495 (easiest is to use Rainbow Keepers and get a beefy Odin)

    If you have Seraphim Lucifer you can go Lucifer/RK/RK/Echidna/Lilith/Lucifer. Use Lilith on neptune, both lucifer nukes on hades, heal up and grind Hera down

    The rest of these will probably cost you some stones.

    For the next few having a max skill Siren is very important because you'll need to heal to full or over 50% every round on Hera/Venus
    If you have a Viper Orochi or a Valkyrie you can go Valk/Siren/Enchida/Lilith/Siren.
    If you have any form of 50% dark resist you can go resist/Odin. You'll need 8.5k+ HP to survive Hades and poison/defense reduction to kill Neptune. This should also have 2 sirens to heal every round on Hera and Venus.

    Finally there is resolve.

    Basically resolve might have trouble with the first round, but past that you should be going into every following round with your skills fully charged. As long as you can combo decently you should be able to 0-5 stone with resolve as long as you don't have a bad first round. They key is to have something which can kill off all the devils asap since they hit every turn. Then kill off anything that is in sync or will sync. Charge up on the last monster. It helps to have non resisted damage light/dark demons and chimeras, low level ancient dragons can work if you have an amaterasu or orochi.

    Odin/Resist can have an easier time with the first rounds since you'll have more hp, but you can get screwed easily at the end with Hera since she has so much HP and you need to heal to full every round for a long time otherwise you'll take 12k/round. You have to remember to carefully use your sirens and save your hearts and red orbs. Go into the damage calculator to see how many combos you'll need to heal off the damage and make sure you are comfy with that.

    You don't *need* an auto healer the boss hits very infrequently, you do need to have a plan for dealing with multiple devils though.
    Is the Valkyrie a guaranteed drop in Mythical? I'm going with THAT team : SoD Luci, 3x Heras, healer, SoD Luci friend. Unfortunately my Heras are still only level 30 but hopefully the 2 Lucifers will be enough for the HP buffer.

    Trying to make sure i leave enough XP to be able to level up after that run and be able to run it again after, if successful.

    She is a guarnteed drop on Mythical. Just make sure you can tank the Dark Golem's 31k hit and you should be okay. You'll also need to be able to do 85k damage before she gets a turn. She has 3200 armor on Mythical. Just make sure you are comfy with that.

    Guess I will look when I get home from work to see which monsters I can sub/move around to be able to stall or nuke multiple devils for the synched junk.... Thinking about, thinking of running it with a friend's viper and running a team with higher damage to kill of the devils. Green is my weakest color however.

    Remember that the next god fest should give us some free stones too, so you'll likely have enough for 3 pulls! I've got 11 stocked up myself, although I'm most excited for the 5x plus egg rate in technical dungeons

    The 5x +1 Rate in tech dungeons was hardly noticeable last time. Its more relevant in the higher tier tech dungeons as well.

    After doing math, i'm probably going to skip the Valk dungeon. There's no way i'm going to survive the rest of the dungeon.

    My Heras have some leveling to do.

    I'm now at my usual problem with games like this, instead of focusing on a team, i'm trying to level up everything and now starting to feel the problem with spreading too thin. It will eventually pay off, in the next millenium when everything is leveled up :p

    @_J_ We should remove the charts about the mystic knights in CoS to prevent confusion.

    @Darkewolfe Phoenix can appear on any floor 1-9 I think. If you see the 9th floor boss on floor 8 then you have some warning otherwise it just pops up. I think I had Cerberus on floor 1, but I don't remember.

    The 5x +1 Rate in tech dungeons was hardly noticeable last time. Its more relevant in the higher tier tech dungeons as well.

    No need I ran it with friend viper and fortoytops with mainly mono green team. I couldn't get any hearts/green orbs and died to synched devils....so much for that 50 stamina lol.

    Guess ill get some plants tonight and store up stamina for dubs tomorrow. Got 4 things needing evo.

    After doing math, i'm probably going to skip the Valk dungeon. There's no way i'm going to survive the rest of the dungeon.

    My Heras have some leveling to do.

    I'm now at my usual problem with games like this, instead of focusing on a team, i'm trying to level up everything and now starting to feel the problem with spreading too thin. It will eventually pay off, in the next millenium when everything is leveled up :p

    A time-traveler claimed that we'll be getting Legendary difficulty with 2x drops. It's significantly easier and should still get you a Valkyrie in 2-3 runs.

    If that's true, I'm going to farm myself 2 more. So that I can have 3 Masterings and 3 Valkyries. But only 2 Sirens :)

    2x drops? I haven't seen a one day dungeon with 2x ever.

    Also, big thanks to @_J_ for maintaining the OP through both threads now. I'm quite amazed that we hit the point of even needing a second thread for a mobile game.

    Thanks! Agree that I did not expect the thread to be this active, but am glad it is.

    Ahh, I found the post again.

    I think I misunderstood it. The guy was referring to two separate things.

    Yeah, it looks like even the easier difficulty can't be Egypt brute forced. Oh well

    You get lots of pal points doing that at least. When I was trying to skillup my vampire I almost used my friends list

    I had not thought of doing that...grinding low 1/2 dungeons for pal points.

    Brilliant!

    Even though it doesn't say 2x king appearance, I saw one king per run over 3 runs. Obviously not statistically valid but with pengdra village known to be coming again I wouldn't feel too bad about getting smalls.

    Valk showed up with two difficulties, so Persephone is getting evolved.

    edit: Managed to get up early enough to run kings, so was able to evolve Persephone without throwing her my Blue monsters. Which means I finally maxed out my first monster!

    He's not maxed, his skill is still a level 1 :P

    So I tried my Dark team on Legend Valkyrie. Beat it with 5 stones, but didn't get the drop. 2 stones were from mistakes and 3 were from running out of hearts.

    I think I'm going to try again later with a Zeus team to see if it fares any better.

  • Kick_04Kick_04 Registered User regular
    Grats on maxing Neptune.

    I put my Persephone up, she isnt the greatest but atleast she is evolved also. Made two Loki friends yesterday so once I get my dark team evolved some more should be able to do some nice dungeons.

    I don't see Neptune as being really useful to skillup.
    Where did you use the stones? All on Valk?
    Golem didn't switch to attack stance for me until he had maybe 5-10% life left.
    Demons were more annoying than I thought they would be, poisoned them, waited a few turns then hit them with gravity and Lucifer on one of them. Killed a couple of turns later. Now on Valk before her first heal have her almost to 50%. Already used Keeper and Siren a few times.

    The fact that her main attack is double splash is hilarious, although the 12k it does is less amusing.

    All on Valk. First one was because I had used my Rainbow Keeper, only for her to bind Lucifer.

    The other mistake is that I missed when she switched from Double Strike to her other attack, resulting in my not healing when I should off. The rest were just not having enough orbs. I suppose I should have brought a Siren myself.

  • gjaustingjaustin Registered User regular
    Oh, and I just "time-traveled". I think we aren't getting a special dungeon tomorrow, unless you count Super Metal Kings (I don't).

    Ah, I'm trying to minimize her time with other attack by saving Hera for that. She just used Resurrection. Bleh such a grind.

    Just a few more days until my day 100 so hopefully the godfest waits. :)

    I really need to just farm the first levels of the technical for penga's so I can level some of my stuff up. I don't think I have a bad team I just think they're neglected in the leveling and grinding areas.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    Holy butts, I just looked at the stats for Legendary Valkyrie Dungeon

    kinda blacked out there for a sec

    It is impossibly out of my league. Frankly, I'm surprised it's in anyone's league - major congrats to those who have rocked it.

    I'm dumb. Used Lucifer to knock her down a bit faster, now she's hitting me for 28k per turn and I still have 14 turns till Lucifer comes up.

    And Killed her! Lucifer came up right when I ran out of hearts and siren and RK were down.

    No Drop! Hooray! >_<
