The BlueStacks Beginner’s Guide to Rage of Dragons
Rage of Dragons takes you into an epic adventure into the world of the Dragon’s Land and it is undoubtedly going to be a long adventure. With that said, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the basics of the game to help you get started in your journey and to ensure that the later parts of the game will run smoothly.
Selecting a Character
As of writing, there are four character to choose from in Rage of Dragons, and each character has their own strengths and capabilities.
The warrior is a character that is more geared towards defense and overall survival. If you are looking for a character that can withstand as much damage as possible, then consider choosing the warrior
The wizard specializes in magic attacks that can deal damage to more than one enemy (AoE attacks). This particular character is very useful in teams as the AoE attacks can greatly reduce the burdens of other players in dealing with a multitude of enemies. If you are interested in AoE attacks or in playing as a support character in general, then choose the wizard.
The archer uses her bow and arrow to deal damage to enemies from long distances. This character is very similar to the wizard insofar as they both specialize in AoE attacks, making them great support characters. If you want to deal AoE damage at long distances, choose the archer.
Lastly, the dual wielder is a character centered on dealing large amounts of damage hastily with the help of her dual-wielded guns. If you are interested in attacking enemies aggressively, then choose the dual wielder.
Do not worry if you end up not liking your character as you can try out other characters by logging out of the game and start over with a new one. The progress of your other character will be saved. This essentially means that you can switch from one character to another anytime and this allows you to have great freedom with regards to experimenting with different playstyles.
Rage of Dragons is quite complex with regards to its features and mechanics but the same cannot be said for its controls.
By default, BlueStacks sets your character’s movement to the traditional W,A,S,D keys. Once you unlock a mount (a creature or vehicle that boosts your character’s movement speed) for your character, you can summon it by pressing the Z key.
A basic attack can be done by pressing the spacebar and you can spam this repeatedly.
Skills can be activated by pressing the 1,2,3,4 keys. These are special moves of your character that deal greater damage than a basic attack and may affect more than one enemy. Note that you won’t have four skills immediately when you start the game as you will need to earn them first.
While manual controls exist in Rage of Dragons, the game boasts an AFK feature wherein the game automatically controls your character for you, and this can be activated by clicking on the AFK button. This feature is meant for passively farming resources like EXP or simply for convenience purposes.
Fundamental Player Stats
It is important to take note of your character’s stats as these are variables that will constantly change as you play the game. Player stats can be updated by multiple factors such as equipping stronger equipment or by upgrading them individually.
At the very base level, your character has three main stats: EXP, HP, and MP. EXP is represented with a green bar and this indicates the amount of EXP needed before your character levels up. HP is represented with a red bar and displays the amount of damage your character can withstand before dying. Note that characters have different starting HP amounts. Lastly, MP is represented with a blue bar and it is akin to a ‘stamina’ bar but for your character’s skills. Activating a skill decrements a certain amount of MP however this is quickly regenerated.
Your character has more specific stats rather than just the ones mentioned above called basic stats and special stats.
|P. ATK (Physical Attack)||Amount of P.ATK dealt to enemies|
|M. ATK (Magic Attack)||Amount of M.ATK dealt to enemies|
|Defense||Amount of damage reduced when you receive hits from enemies|
|HP (hit points)||Dictates the amount of damage your character can take before dying.|
|Accuracy||Chance of hitting targets|
|Evasion||Chance of evading attacks|
|Movement SPD||The speed at which your character moves|
|HP Regen||Amount of HP regenerated every 10 seconds|
|HP Regen%||Amount of HP% regenerated every 10 seconds|
Basic stats are very essential to your character and upgrading them immediately benefits them. Do note that P.ATK and M.ATK are represented as a range with the lowest number being the minimum amount of ATK that can be dealt and the largest number being the maximum amount. This simply means that the amount of damage dealt to an enemy is not constant and may change due to factors like the enemy’s defense stat.
|PEN||Amount of DEF of an enemy that is reduced when they are hit|
|PEN Chance||PEN stats represented in percentage|
|Elemental ATK (Elemental Attack)||Amount of damage dealt by an elemental attack|
|Elemental DEF||Amount of elemental damage mitigated by your character when hit by one|
|Crit Chance||Chance (in percentage) of dealing Crit damage to an enemy|
|Tenacity||Reduces the chance of receiving Crit DMG from enemies|
|Crit DMG||Bonus damage dealt to enemies|
|Crit DMG Reduction||Amount of received Crit DMG reduced|
|Crit DMG RES Reduction||Reduces an enemy’s resistance to Crit DMG|
|Crit DMG RES||Your character’s resistance against an enemy’s Crit DMG|
|Fatal Chance||Chance of dealing fatal attacks|
|Fatal RES||Chance of taking fatal attacks|
Special stats are bonus stats that give extra power to your character given that you have them. It is not necessarily required to have all of the special stats, but having at least one is good enough to make your character above-normal.
All of your character’s stats are summarized by a single number called power. Power is always important to take into consideration as certain quests and dungeons require your character to have a certain amount of power to proceed.
Quests and Bounties
There are a myriad of quests in the world of Rage of Dragons and completing these quests is important as doing so gives you rewards that you can use to upgrade your character. Generally, there are three types of quests in the game: main quests, side quests, and bounties.
Main quests are the main drivers of the game’s story and more importantly, these are the quests responsible for unlocking new features of the game. Moreover, completing these quests also reward you with plenty of EXP and gold which makes it an easy way to level up fast. Do note however that some main quests require your character to be at a certain level first before starting. In those cases, that is where you need to resort to other quests.
Side quests are optional quests that can generally be done at any level. Completing these quests gives your rewards as well so completing them is essential for leveling up and upgrading your character too.
Bounties are a series of quests whose progress is measured in ‘loops’. Completing each loop grants you rewards such as EXP and gold. Additionally, completing 10 loops rewards you with a bonus called a Bounty Treasure which rewards you 100,000 to 500,000 gold depending on your luck.
