Dragalia Lost - Resplendent Refrain Sabnock Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on December 3rd, 2018

Dragalia Lost's latest event, Resplendent Refrain, is an event that favors light Adventurers in an all new raid dungeon. This dungeon has four teams of four face off against the mighty Sabnock, which is probably the toughest raid fight in the game yet.

Although Sabnock is tough, he isn't unbeatable. We've been testing different ways to clear this raid and have been able to clear it consistently by following a few, simple guidelines. See below about how you too can start clearing the Sabnock fight:

Dragalia Lost - Weapons Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 30th, 2018

Dragalia Lost might seem like it’s all about the gacha at first, but there’s quite a bit more to the game than just hoping you pull the best Adventurers, dragons, and Wyrmprints, out of the virtual slot machine. If you truly want to master and conquer high level content in this game, it’s more important to know what you’re doing with what you have than just spending time and/or money to try and get a chance at something better.

Take weapons, for instance. Weapons are some of the most important items in Dragalia Lost, yet there’s no random component to them at all. From the start of the game, every player gets the chance to craft and upgrade any and all kinds of weapons that they want, and these are items that are more important than both dragons and Wyrmprints. That said, weapons can use a ton of materials to craft and upgrade, so you want to be judicious about what weapon work you do and when. Check out some tips below to make the most of your weapons in Dragalia Lost.

Dragalia Lost Guide - What You Need to Know About Resplendent Refrain

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 27th, 2018

It's been exactly two months since Dragalia Lost's release, and–although it isn't exactly what you'd expect from the likes of Nintendo–it has retained a strong following because of how often its events have come along. Since release, there have been four distinct events complete with unique challenges and rewards that really makes the game feel dynamic and worth sticking with.

This trend is showing no sign of stopping, as Dragalia Lost's fifth event is on the horizon. Resplendent Refrain is coming hot of the heels of the wind-based facility event, A Wish to the Winds, and promises another difficult raid for players to try and tackle cooperatively. Details are still a little scant on what Resplendent Refrain will contain specifically, but see below for some expert analysis of what to expect given what we know:

Dragalia Lost - Ruler of the Shore Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 20th, 2018

The toughest part of every facility event in Dragalia Lost is the pesky wave-based challenge battles. These fights push your Adventurers to the limit with tons of enemies with huge amounts of health that can take you down easily if you’re not careful.

With A Wish to the Wind, this wave-based event is as hard as ever, but it is certainly passable. Check out a few handy tips on how to beat the Ruler of the Shore mission below:

Dragalia Lost - High Midgardsormr Prep Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 14th, 2018

It might not seem like there's a ton to do between events in Dragalia Lost, but there is one high level piece of content that can keep you occupied for a long time. Defeating High Midgardsormr is currently the game's most difficult non-event challenge, and it can reward dedicated players with their own High Midgardsormr dragon that they can equip to their Adventurers. The only problem with this quest? It's tough, so much so that it requires a hefty 13,000 Might team to even attempt it.

Pumping up your heroes to huge Might levels won't ensure your victory over this powerful dragon boss, though. There's quite a bit of consideration and prep you need to do if you want a high chance of passing High Midgardsormr's Trial. See below for some tips on exactly what you should be doing to earn this powerful dragon:

Dragalia Lost Guide - What You Need To Know About A Wish to the Winds

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 12th, 2018

Another raid has come and gone in Dragalia Lost, but that doesn’t mean there’s not still lots to do. In fact, the game’s next event, A Wish to the Winds, has already been announced and will be coming to the game this Wednesday.

Although details are scant on what—exactly—this event will entail, there’s been a lot of speculation about what it could be. See below for some of the most reliable scuttlebutt of what’s in store with A Wish to the Winds.

Dragalia Lost guide - How to Close Out Kindness and Captivity Properly

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 8th, 2018

There's only a few more days left of Dragalia Lost's second raid event, Kindness and Captivity, and if you're anything like me, you've already cleared all of the Endeavors and maxed out the Gold Emblem rewards.

Even if you have done all of the high tier stuff in this event, there's still a few handy things you can keep doing for the next few days to make sure you're all set by the time Kindness and Captivity ends. See below:

Dragalia Lost guide - How to beat Hypnos Showdown

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 2nd, 2018

Dragalia Lost's second raid event dropped this week, and after speculating on everything you'd need to know to get prepared, we've spent some real time figuring out exactly how this raid works. As it turns out, everything we suggested would be useful turned out to be correct (fancy that!), but there are some other nitty-gritty details about beating Hypnos that we couldn't have possibly known until the event came out.

Now, after clearing Hypnos 21 times as of this writing (with 19 of those clears being expert and EX clears, mind you), I've gathered quite a few tips to make this fight a bit easier. See below:

Dragalia Lost - Who to upgrade if you don't have five-star Adventurers

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 23rd, 2018

As a gacha game, Dragalia Lost only allows you to build your teams of Adventurers out of the best units you have around you. So, although we may all want to have teams full of S tier five-star Adventurers, that’s simply not realistic.

Most players may have only one or no five-star Adventurers and will have to resort to putting together a rag-tag group of “lesser” heroes. Fortunately, Dragalia Lost is pretty well balanced so that you don’t need ultra rare units to do well in late game content, though they aren’t great about letting you know who these folks are. See below for my picks of some of Dragalia Lost’s best non-five-star heroes (and even some advice about five-star units to avoid):

Dragalia Lost Imperial Onslaught Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 22nd, 2018

Now that Dragalia Lost has been out for a bit, most players have likely found time between limited events like Loyalty’s Requiem and Trick or Treasure to complete the game’s campaign. If you somehow haven’t yet though, make sure you do, as completion of Dragalia Lost’s campaign unlocks a new mission type called The Imperial Onslaught.

The Imperial Onslaught is a pretty tough mission type, but they’re extremely worth adding to your daily regimen once you have access to them. These missions grant unique rewards that can allow you to do everything from advance your Facility Level to create some of the most powerful weapons in the game. See below for everything you need to know about The Imperial Onslaught.

Dragalia Lost Trick or Treasure Jumpstart Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 19th, 2018

It’s finally here! Loyalty’s Requiem ended in Dragalia Lost, but it has swiftly been replaced with a new Halloween event. This event—called Trick or Treasure—had quite a bit of hype surrounding it before it came out, and for good reason too.

This isn’t just another raid-based event for another element type. It’s a facility event, meaning it’s focused around letting you earn rewards to help you upgrade your Castle Grounds. In light of the fact that Trick or Treasure is such a different beast, we’ve put together a quick and dirty guide on how to get a jumpstart on this Halloween event.

Dragalia Lost Daily Tasks Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 16th, 2018

Part of what makes gacha games compelling (and sometimes annoying) is their grind. You’re always supposed to be advancing something in these games, meaning you need to be checking in on your progress once or multiple times a day to make sure you’re progressing at an optimal pace.

Something nice about Dragalia Lost is that its daily grind is relatively light compared to similar games. This is to say the specific objectives given to you every day aren’t something that takes a huge time investment. That said though, there’s quite a few tasks you should be doing every day to advance your progress, even though they aren’t daily quests. See below:
