Atuko Koizumi’s new iOS game Ninja Warriors isn’t just an MMORPG, as one can infer from its App Store description – it’s an MMOARPG, which is either a play on the alternate spelling “moar” (more), or an acronym for Massively Multiplayer Online Adventure Role Playing Game. (Seriously, it’s the latter.) This is an anime-styled RPG that will “bring you back to the ninja age,” though you’ll also be dealing with elves and other mystical characters. There are more than 120 “unique and exciting” skills for your heroes, as well as the opportunity to meet players from all over the world as you try to rise up in the rankings. Characters run the gamut from “brave warriors, ghost like assassins, powerful mages,” each of whom have their own fighting styles.
Those are just some of the features available in this game, and as an MMORPG (okay, MMOARPG), that means there’s a lot for new players to pick up, and a steeper learning curve than the average mobile game. So read on as we get you started the right way, or help you out if you’re stuck somewhere, with this Ninja Warriors strategy guide.
1. When In Doubt, You Know What To Do With Those Quests
Of course, the thing to do would be to follow the quests. Tap on the button in the upper right corner of your screen, which will allow your hero to move on to the next quest location. So why should you really be focusing on these quests? A quick answer would be the experience points and gold you can earn, but beyond that, quests will also set you on the right path and allow you to progress properly in this game.
2. Free Stuff Is Always A Good Thing
The game comes with a plethora of freebies which you can use to improve your hero, and you should redeem those free items whenever possible. So what kind of freebies can you win?
First of all, you can expect to get a welcoming pack that serves as a launch bonus of sorts; this is, after all, still a very new game for iOS devices. You’ll get upgrade materials and experience boosters, among other goodies. You can also claim your rewards for achievements, which can be quite unique and powerful. Additionally, you can spin the roulette to win a wide range of different prizes. Leveling up a given number of times will get you a free spin on top of the free spin you get once a day. Then there’s the incentive to play the game online (like you have any choice), which could earn you some special online rewards – they’re mostly limited to gold, but free stuff is free stuff, isn’t it?
3. Play The Game Everyday
Aside from all the freebies we told you above, you can also earn some free rewards for logging into the game at least once a day. This daily sign-in bonus is another reason why you should be committed enough to play at least once a day, and you can earn gold, as well as diamonds, which are the game’s premium currency.
4. Keep Your Equipment Upgraded By Enhancing Them
Your hero will always have six slots for their equipment, and you can upgrade each piece of gear by enhancing them. Use your gold to enhance your gear, and give you more noticeable stat boosts. Take note, however, that you can only enhance up to the maximum level of your hero; you may need to get enough experience for your hero in order to enhance your equipment to their full potential.
5. What Are Faen – A Quick Overview
For starters, Faen are sort-of like this game’s equivalent to pets in the RPG parlance. They’re tiny fairies/faeries that follow you around in the game, and you’ll want them around because they can give you some passive stat boosts. Passive stat boosts are, in most cases, more important than the active ones! These could, in addition, help your hero become much better than they should, so it’s important to equip as many of them as possible. You could equip a maximum of four depending on your current level.
6. What Is The Best Way To Upgrade Your Faen?
Now, that we told you about Faen, here is the best way in which you should upgrade them, on top of the upgrades for your hero. As you’ll notice when you tap on a Faen and check their details, there’s a combo list available. “Stringing” these combos together is easy; pairing that Faen with another that’s in the combo list will give you bonus effects, so you should pay attention to the combo list if you want to get the best passive buffs while in battle.
7. Make The Most Out Of Your Skills
It doesn’t matter what class you chose, because you’ll have an array of skills ready to use. And it won’t matter either what skill you prefer – it’s best to try them all out. Most of the skills have short cool down times, which means you can easily try several of them out in battle, and take advantage of the quick cool down to kill as many enemies as possible. This game is mostly dependent on the speed of your actions, so unleash those skills and use as many of them so you can get an idea of what they can do.
