Every RPG begins with the player choosing their hero and ends with them making that hero as strong as they possibly can. The same is applicable in Dragon Trail: Hunter World, but MMORPGs make it a bit more complicated for players to achieve the maximum power without making the player work for it. To understand how you can make your hero stronger than it is, you’ll need to understand what makes it work and the factors involved in raising your character.

Dragon Trail: Hunter World - A Guide to Your Hero

Dragon Trail: Hunter World gives players the freedom to play a character they will be proud of and love to play. Once you’ve selected a character you want to play, it’s time to make them the strongest they can be, but that’s not exactly an easy task. First of all, you need to know what your hero does and how you can improve on the different points. We’ve created this simple guide to your hero so that you can learn everything that you need to know about it.

Choosing a Class

The first step in playing the game is choosing which class to play. The game gives you a selection of four classes – Warrior, Priest, Ranger, and Hunter. The naming convention is a bit weird if you’ve played other RPGs before because some of the classes aren’t what you may think they are. Warriors are swordsmen, priests are mages, rangers are the thief/rogue class, and hunters are the archer class. Each class plays a different role in the game, but we’ll get to that later.

Players can choose any of these classes and upgrade them after meeting specific requirements. Once a class has undergone a class upgrade, they’ll receive stronger skills, abilities, and stats that make them even more unique compared to each of the other classes. The game doesn’t offer any way to change classes, but players can create up to three characters per server, so if they don’t like their choice, they can try creating another hero to replace the one they already have.

Hero Role

Hero roles depend on the class you’re using. We already introduced the four classes, but players should know that there’s a massive difference between each class depending on how you want to play them when you’re in a team. The primary roles in any MMORPG are tank, support, and DPS. The DPS role can further be broken down to melee and ranged DPS in addition to magic and physical damage types. A balanced team contains the right balance of these roles to maximize their damage output and survivability.

Warriors are the tanks because they have high defense and high HP but have average DPS, so they’re usually slow when fighting alone. Priests can play either the support role or magic DPS, depending on what they want to prioritize when they’re in a team. The ranger is a melee physical DPS class that deals a large burst of damage by sacrificing their defense. The hunter is a ranged physical DPS class that deals a lot of AoE damage from a safe distance because they also have very low defense. 

Skills and Abilities

Skills and abilities are also something that differs depending on the class that you’re using. The game uses an auto-combat system, so it may seem like there’s no need to understand the skills you’re using, but if you’re having difficulties fighting specific opponents, you may want to use your abilities manually to maximize your damage output. First, you need to read about the skills and abilities of your hero, including their pets and other companions, since they might give a synergy bonus.

Abilities are necessary because they define the character’s potential when fighting against other enemies. You can take advantage of your hero’s skills by knowing which ones to upgrade. You can add tomes to your skills to make them stronger, but because this is such a precious resource, you can’t waste it on the first icon that you see. Understanding which ones make your character strong and more efficient in its role should be your utmost priority when upgrading skills and abilities.

Character Attributes

Character attributes are what define your characters the most. Your character’s attributes depend on their class, but you’ll notice that some stats are higher and more prominent than others because those are what your hero specializes in. For example, you’ll see that the warrior contains a higher value in its defensive stats such as defense, evasion, and resistance as compared to the other classes in the game because they are expected to take more damage in combat.

The character attribute is what the game uses to calculate combat power, but we’ll get into that in a future article because it’s crucial that players know what they need to do to increase this value. For now, understanding the different attributes will help you because it’ll give you a better idea of what equipment you want to wear and what enchantments or upgrades you want to choose when the time comes. Understand what your hero’s strengths are by reading their attribute page.

Cosmetics & Companions

Cosmetics are a minor part of your hero’s efficiency, but we feel like it’s essential to introduce them nonetheless. Cosmetics involve wings, titles, and skins, which give a minor increase in your hero’s attributes, but they’re not enough to make any game-breaking changes to your hero’s strength. Wings can provide players with a lot of power when they upgrade it enough, but the rate at which you can do so is extremely slow because the resources needed to upgrade are very limited.

Companions, on the other hand, play a big part in your hero’s identity. Pets are a central part of Dragon Trail: Hunter World because they contribute a good amount to the overall damage that your heroes deal. Mounts may seem like they play a more cosmetic role, but upgrading them and leveling them up will greatly affect your overall power. You should learn how to upgrade these and make sure that you get the best units.
