How to Play
- Classes: Dragon Summoner has three different class systems for the respective cards that you can receive. They are: warrior, mage and hunter. Each of the classes will have an effect on the type of team build that you will want to make when you face off against the many bosses the game have to offer.
- Gacha: Completing quests and winning battles against real opponents will earn you “Friendship Points”. These can be used in the “friendship gacha”, which won’t get you the best cards but will be cards to build and enhance your better cards in the early going. You can get better cards by going to the single platinum or pack platinum gacha—but this will cost you real-life cash if you go this route.
- Questing/Battling: To receive cards and awards outside of the free friendship points, you will have to complete quests. There are really only three things that you’ll have to focus on. In the above screenshot you can see the card that I have chosen to fight the baddies, which is handled prior to beginning the quest. From there, you’ll notice the energy, experience and progress.
- Energy: Much like every other freemium game out there, you’ll have an energy bar of some sort. Every attack that you make will drain a certain amount of energy from you. Once energy is depleted, you will either have to wait for it to recharge (which it does fairly quickly), or purchase energy drinks to get back into the action immediately.
- Experience: This bar is simply to show you your progress on your next level.
- Progress: This bar will show you how far along you are in your quest. After completing a few of these battles you will typically face off against a boss.
- Quest Common Battles: In quest common battles, which is the one you see in the above screenshot, there is not anything to be concerned about. See the “go” button? You tap that for however many enemies there are on the screen and then you move on. The only roadblock is energy.
- Battle Rewards: For each quest battle that you win, you will earn a new card, coins, items that enhances your character, or some combination thereof.
- Card Evolution: Between your card packs, quest rewards and so on, you will likely get two of the same cards at some point. Usually this would be a drag, but not in Dragon Summoner! Instead, if you get two of the same cards, you can “evolve” the card into one much more powerful card through its card evolution system. See below—I evolved two “Tess” characters, which has a created a higher level Tess than the previous two cards, with higher attack, defense power and health points
- Enhancing Cryptids: With enhancing Cryptids, you can simply sacrifice unneeded cards to enhance a current, more suitable Cryptid, giving the “enhance” card more experience to level them up and make them stronger.
- Boss Battles: Boss battles are the end point of each quest. These are tougher fights, with the bosses actually able to attack you. In these fights, defense is much more of an attribute that you will want to take note of before heading in. However, when you finish off a boss, it typically will give you huge experience bonuses, as well as a treasure trove of goodies dropped (energy drinks, coins, items that enhance your cards skills).
- Card Level Caps: Each card shows the cap that it maxes out at. Each card has its own unique cap—the better the card, the bigger the cap and the longer you can use it to quest and battle other players. As mentioned before, you can level your cards by fighting in quests and battles, as well as enhancing and evolving your cards with other cards you have picked up along the way.
- DC Points: In order to purchase premium packs and other assorted goodies, you will have to purchase “DC Points”, which is the premium currency that the game has. The prices are noted above. There are some slight discounts if you purchase more points, but then again, you’re also shelling out more cash.
- Battles: If you’re bored of questing, you can battle other players. Choose the battle option from the menu screen in the top left of the game, select your opponent, then your cards, what you want earn in terms of items and get to fighting. These all come down to dice rolls and how good of a card you possess with regards to attack and defense. Winning battles earns you rewards that will help you in the next battle.
- Choosing Your Opponent: Don’t go into the battle all in a huff. At the top of the battle screen, you have the option to choose from a similar level as you. This is obviously the most wise choice. The main screen also gives you the option to attack by item, but this will include players that are much higher level than you, and therefore, it is extremely likely they will stomp your face in with their more advanced cards. Pick on someone your own size!
