Setting a Helper

To set a Helper, go to the "More" menu, then "Friends" and finally "Helper Settings." This will lead to a screen for choosing the Adventurer and accompanying equipment in the Weapon, Wyrmprint and Dragon slots.

Helper Settings

A Helper is an Adventurer set for use by anyone on that player’s Friend List. Assists are only available for single-player modes, but there are a few Skills that can save an otherwise difficult fight.  

Things to keep in mind when choosing a Helper:

  • Only Skill 1 is included, so it's best to use an Adventurer with high Mana Circles (Skill 1 has been upgraded to Level 3)
  • They are counted as Full HP for the purpose of casting that Skill.
  • Weapon, Wyrmprint, Dragon and Ability bonuses apply, making this an excellent opportunity to use Full HP effects that are normally difficult to maintain.

Skill Animations

Longer animations offer more evasion, but come at the risk of being locked into an animation. When using these, steer clear of telegraphed attacks.

Quicker animations are more difficult to time around evasion, but also less intrusive. Quick damage Skills are best for maximizing attacking uptime with regular weapon combos.
