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.

Shellrazer Developers Talk About New Ice-Breaker World And Week Long Sale

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: PATH OF DESTRUCTION :: Read Review »

Shellrazer isn’t just another shooter. After all, the main character is a giant war turtle with guns on his back. As designer Shane Neville states, “I’ve never seen a game like it, either thematically or in gameplay. Most shooters are about dodging bullets in a screen filled with bullets, where Shellrazer has no dodging at all. Rather, Shellrazer’s gameplay is about weapon management, choosing what weapon to shoot and when to use it to destroy as many goblins and yetis as possible.”

I had the opportunity to review Shellrazer a few months ago, and I instantly became hooked. 148Apps gave the game its prestigious Editor's Choice award, as well. Goblins, steampunk war machines, sheep riders and a whole lot of bad ass elements combined together into one game was a dream come true. I was kicking butt and taking names and it was awesome. Once I eventually made it to the end, I yearned for more turtle warfare and so did others.

Slick Entertainment heard the outcries of gamers and chose to issue an update to wipe away the tears. Just like Shellrazer isn’t just another shooter, this isn’t just another update. It’s a HUGE update. When asked why the team decided to update Shellrazer owner Nick Waanders responded by saying, “A lot of people told us that they thought the game was too short, even though it took them 5 hours to complete. (For a $.99 game that’s pretty good though, isn’t it?). We had all the tools ready, so it was easy to create a bunch more enemies and levels, and provide more content for people to enjoy. It seemed like the right thing to do.” Artist Jesse Turner had more to add, “For me on the art side it was because I really love the wacky universe of Shellrazer. It’s a ton of fun and really easy to just come up with stuff that fits in such a strange setting and it felt really natural to make another world full of bad guys and guns.”

The update adds a completely new world to Shellrazer known as Ice-Breaker and it launches on November 8, 2012 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Yeti King’s have stolen a freshly laid War Turtle egg, and gamers must help get it back.

Along with over 25 new levels and 20 new enemies to battle, the best addition to the game are the Yetis. They are extremely tough, but they do have one weakness: fire. “We’ve added two new weapons to help deal with the Yeti hordes: Chuckles the Dragon whose fire breath cuts through the waves of enemies and Combs the Necrobomicon who has a cool projectile that does damage over a vertical column of magic fire,” said Neville.

There are more updates that Shellrazer fans will appreciate, like iPhone 5 and retina support, multitouch controls for crazy combos, iCloud support to share saved games between Apple devices and ratings for the levels. In addition, Shellrazer will be free from November 8th to the 15th, after which the price will increase to $0.99 afterwards. Since it’s completely free for a week, there’s no excuse not to grab a copy. Snatch it up from the App Store, and help the war turtle rescue his girlfriend and get back their precious egg from those pesky yetis.

While the update trailer is in the works, check out the exclusive visual design for the Wal-Russer, below.
