Here are the top 5 tips/tricks/cheats you need to know for Knights of Pen & Paper 2 – Here Be Dragons.
1. The Tank
• Dragons are easy to anger and hard to handle. Your party definitely needs a tank: a class specialized to withstand a lot of damage and sure to keep the majority of attention. It is definitely worth going the extra mile to do side quests to get access to the Knight or the Barbarian (or both)!
2. The Damage Dealer(s)
• Big numbers, lots of damage! Make sure to have at least one or two characters who can dish out tons of hurt, preferably against single enemies such as scaly, winged, fire spewing lizards. Mage, Ninja or Hunter should do the trick.
3. The Healer
• Dealing damage is a lot of fun, but don’t forget the medic. After all, a single swipe of your scaly opponents’ claw can retire half your party. Someone needs to keep them alive. A Cleric with some points in “Purge” and “Restoration” or a Paladin with “Lay on Hands” is going to keep you in the fight for a bit longer.
4. Items & Gear
• Your party needs to be ready and well equipped. Make sure that their armor is thick and their shields broad. Some precious rings are also good. Spend some time sharpening your blades with enchantments at the crafting table. For example, power up your weapons or armor with the new “+4 Enchantment Scroll.” Or why not go out explore the world and search for some powerful gear? It can definitely be worth the effort in the long run!
5. Potions & Consumables! Plus More Tips On The Order of Battle and Placement Around The Table
• Yes! Even the most legendary heroes with the most epic items never leave home without their potions. Other consumable items such as the “Phoenix Up” feather will also come in handy. If you are lucky, the local Witches might give you the recipe for some fresh and tasty Bewitched Soup on your travels. Try to control the order of battle! Make sure you get to decide in what order your party gets to use their abilities to best set up combos. This is most easily done by raising the “initiative” stat on certain characters via items and abilities. Some of the more dangerous enemies utilize spells and area-of-effect abilities that affect party members sitting beside the enemy’s main target – or the whole party, for that matter. Therefore, position the tank as far away from your healer, and more squishy party members such as the Mage.
