You can have the best smorgasboard of items, but you won’t get places without the right armor and weapons. Armor is far more generalized than weapons, but if you have multiple weapons to pick from, be sure to pick the right one. Different monsters have different weak spots and elemental weaknesses. Some monsters take a ton of damage to the head–a hammer could be good for that! Others have very hard heads but soft bellies. Try a cutting weapon that can reach their stomach? Some monsters are very susceptible to poison, so bringing a poison-capable weapon could make your quest much faster. All monsters are weak to different elements. There are five: Ice, Water, Fire, Lightning, and Dragon. Weapons with powerful elemental properties taken into battle against a monster weak to them will deal massive damage!

Once you’ve put together multiple sets of armor, make sure you pick the right armor set that is good for the quest. Just like monsters, armor will be weak to different elements depending on the monster it was crafted from. If you’re going up against a monster that lets loose a lot of fireballs, you don’t want to be caught blasted with armor weak to fire!

You got everything together? Okay, one last thing to do before you leave. Eat at the kitchen. You will receive food skills that will help you immensely, and could even boost your maximum health and stamina, letting you take more hits and dodge more!
