Knights Chronicle is a pretty great turn-based rpg, but it's free-to-play mechanics are pretty tough to deal with. In particular, the use of a stamina meter to limit the amount of times you can play the game in one session can be a real bummer. The easiest way around this issue–of course–is to spend some money on the game for Stamina Potions to let you play more of the game more often. But, if you're like me and don't want to spend a penny on Knights Chronicle, here are a few ways to can circumvent this pesky, restrictive system.
Play non-stamina using modes
Believe it or not, there are things you can do in Knights Chronicle that don't use any of your stamina, and I don't just mean the parts of the game where you're hanging out in menus and upgrading your characters. PvP Mode, for example, gives you a separate set of charges to use that don't impact your stamina meter at all, for example.
In addition to this, you can enter Guild Dungeons without spending any stamina to take on powerful bosses that can benefit your entire guild membership, and there's also a daily Boss Dungeon that can get you rewards each and every day, all without emptying your precious little meter one bit.
Play high stamina missions only when you have a surplus
In Knights Chronicle, whenever you level up your account, your stamina refills. In a somewhat generous move, this refilling just adds your maximum stamina to whatever stamina you had, meaning you usually have a surplus of stamina whenever you level up. At these moments, it's best to take on things like the 77 stamina rune dungeon.
There are two main reasons for this. The first is that it can take your stamina meter down below a surplus as fast as possible. This is important because you can't generate more stamina whenever you're operating at a surplus, so it's better to take your meter down so you're constantly gaining more points back. The second reason is that whenever your stamina gets to a pretty low number, you should be doing something else to make that number go back up, like playing PvP, or as I'll explain in a moment, playing the game's single-player campaign.
Play the single-player when your stamina is running low
Whenever your stamina dips below 50, you should probably transition over to playing Knights Chronicle's single-player campaign. Although it's kind of dry compared to the rest of the game's offerings, this mode is important because each level gives you more account experience than just about any other mode of the game.
What's more is that individual missions of Knights Chronicle's single-player mode don't cost that much stamina. So, while you have low stamina, you can spend a modest amount of stamina points to level up quickly and refill to continue playing.
