Epic Conquest 2 Guide: Tips and Tricks
The game’s very simple once you get to know the usage of things, everything will become easier. There are different kinds of monsters in the game but their mechanics remain the same. Following the tips given below will ensure you won’t have to face much difficulty while proceeding through the game:
1. Understand The Enemy’s Attacking Pattern
Before engaging with any enemy, take your time in studying their attacking pattern. Each monster has a unique pattern of its own. So understanding will allow you to dodge their attack and you can find your right chance for attacking them.
2. Character Buildup
As a beginner, your primary target in building your character should be increasing its health and attacking ability. On each level up you get 3 attribute points for upgrading your character. So, it is recommended to use the points on both while prioritising the health.
3. Focus On Breaking Enemy’s Shields
As mentioned before, the white line above the enemy’s health bar indicates their shield capacity. When it is on, the enemy takes 50 percent less damage than that compared to when there is no shield activated. Use all your abilities in breaking the shield which will be your key moment.
4. Just Dodge The Bosses’ Attacks
After giving some shots the boss charges its ability on you. Unlike those regular shots, these attacks will be very powerful and can take almost half or more of your health. And if you lose your rhythm after it you’ll most probably be not able to defeat them. So, by just avoiding those attacks you can defeat them with ease.
5. Don’t Hesitate In Using Abilities
It is totally understandable that you want your best against the Boss. But using abilities only increases the power of the ability. So whenever you get a chance, do not hesitate in using your abilities. After using abilities, the MP bar will automatically charge up with the damage you’ll deal to enemies.
6. Upgrade Your Items
Doesn’t matter how good of a player you are. This game is all about balance. Without having the right amount of damage you need to have against the enemies, you won’t stand a chance. So, always upgrade your items in the Blacksmith’s shop before heading towards any fight.
7. Don’t Skip Clearing The Forest Monsters
You may be focused on the story and want to get straight to the objectives by avoiding the monsters in the jungle. Of Course, you may do this sometimes but you shouldn’t do it very often. These monsters are easy to defeat and don’t consume much time. But the thing that you should be considering is you get valuable EXPs for that. Avoiding that will only slow your progress which isn’t the best thing anyone will want.
8. Assign Your Consumables Carefully
While battling against Bosses there won’t be enough time for taking consumables. To assign your consumables from the inventory accordingly to the level of boss you’re facing. It is recommended to keep good consumables which recover a good amount of HP in 2 slots and MP in the rest 2 slots (bandage and antidote according to the situation). You can refer back to the restoring capacity of the consumables above.
9. Keep Looking For The Hidden Treasures
To make it easier for the players, there are tons of hidden treasures around the map. Opening them could reward you with any of gold, health potions, rubies, etc.
10. Unleash Once Enemy’s Shield Is Broken
Your primary focus should be in breaking the Enemy’s shield. Breaking it is the gateway for your victory. The enemy will go motionless for sometime after you’ve broken the shield. Now it is up to you if you have taken any damage you can use this time for your recovery. Or the second option remains is to unleash on it. The best way to do so is by activating the ‘Soul Resonance‘ which boosts the power for a specific time and activates all the abilities at once (this will be your best chance to do maximum damage to the boss).
