Elona Mobile, a recently released game by LTGames Global is a roguelike open-world adventure RPG game derived from its PC version. It’s both intriguing, odd storyline, relaxing background music, even weirder NPCs and complex overall system are what makes this game truly worth playing. As an adventurer, it is you who decides what role you play in the world, just as you decide your own fate and find a reason for being chosen by the gods. Finding your way in the grand world of Elona can be quite difficult due to the many options and ways to choose from, which is why we’ve put together a simple guide that will explain what first steps to take and so on in Elona Mobile.
Elona Mobile: Guide to Class and Race choice
The game starts with the immediate selection of your class and race instead of with an introduction. However, you will soon find this is the way developers have chosen to execute their game, and so the instead of now, the story will continue afterwards.
Selecting your class and race requires some thought and patience, just as you’ll need to have to get in the pace of the game. They can be changed later on, but for starters, you should choose a class and race that’s will suit your playstyle. The chosen class and race combine their potential, skill and attributes together. Selecting any of the difficult classes is up to you, but be aware that it’ll be a bit rougher on you depending on what flaw the difficult class or race has.
Elona Mobile: Guide to Player Journey
You find yourself stranded on strange land after the boat you boarded succumbed to shipwreck in a heavy storm. It turns out you were escaping Etherwind, a strange weather that causes mutations to form. This land is where you will start your adventure, deciding for yourself what you wish to achieve and become.
Beggar Cave (Home)
It may be due to the complexity, but the game does provide some guidelines on what to aim for as such it’s better to carefully read any found guideline for your own information, or you just might find yourself confused or stuck at some point.
The cave you find yourself sheltering in is in fact your customizable home of which the NPCs you first met will soon dispatch from as soon as you start your progression . For starters, learn how to interact with the many controls at your disposal. They may be difficult to understand at first, but you’ll pick it up soon enough. Also, before heading out using the green exit arrows, which are iconic for leaving every location be sure to pick up anything you can find, because you’ll need all you can get for this next step of your journey.
North Tyris (World Map)
After finishing the home tutorial, you can begin to decide what you want to become in the World of Elona. It goes without saying that there are some basic mechanics to abide by, like always carrying a weapon, levelling up to increase your stats, honing your skills and so on (we’ll get into this soon enough.)
After exiting your home, the place you tread upon is North Tyris, of which at the first time, you will be guided on to a location named Vernis, which is where you’re going to have to officially start your adventure.
The World Map can only be manually walked on and features a lot of locations of which you will have to traverse at some point. It is recommended to proceed with a level of caution when travelling the lands of North Tyris as it isn’t a too safe location to explore and can sometimes become of equal difficulty to a dungeon. This is due to the unique weather changes and both high-level bandit/monster ambushes that happen frequently, and can’t always be avoided.
Of all the towns or locations you will encounter, the mining town Vernis is the place to be for your everyday quests, items, resources and useful information. It is the closest town to your home providing you with the basic needs to get started and to restock for further taversing the World Map.
Vernis is one of the many locations yet to discover of which you will have to learn its layout, story, NPCs and what they offer. For this part of the journey, it’s best to talk to the various NPC’s to learn more about them and what you could be doing around the location. From the get-go various quests become available. But for this part of the journey, we recommend following the main story and using red quest arrow as guidance. You will find that there are a lot of NPC’s in need of your aid and the quests they provide are quite easy and rewarding, but get harder depending on which NPC you talk to and how far you’ve come.
You can know an NPC is offering a quest by navigating the map on the top right of the screen and look out for exclamation marks on the left of two sorts. The red mark means an NPC has a quest available, while the green indicates a quest can be turned in and completed by speaking that NPC it belongs to. Another way to know is the character’s wavings of signs marked with the aforementioned exclamation marks, which have the same meaning.
You can set up a team at a Bar or Home, those of which you choose can be taken along with your journey and will assist you in both combat and company. You’ll have to manually gear them up, but they level up on their own just like you and increase their stats automatically. Should they die, then you can resurrect them using a Scroll of Resurrection/Book of Ressurection, visiting your home and talking to your freed maid or to a Bartender at Bar. It’s better to stick to quests for now and train each team member their skills to a great extent before continuing on with your further journey.
Whatever class or race choice made, you’ll have to level up and get stronger to keep high-level monsters at bay. This is the part where we will give out some tips and tricks on what you can do next and perform better from here on out.
Elona Mobile Guide: Tips to remember for Beginners
If you’re low on gold or in need of loot, some NPC’s can give out jobs that reward handsomely depending on that job’s difficulty. Talking to an NPC About Jobs will earn you Karma Changes and/or Fame upon its completion. You may also check the Town Notice Board to see all available job offers.
Complete side quests
Following the main story quest will get you far enough and help understand exactly what is going on in the game, but if you want to grind and get stronger, then completing side quests is recommended.
Side quests can be acquired by speaking to NPC’s that require help (they will wave the red “!” signs) and are always completed by talking to them once their quest is finished. Completed quests will also give you different Karma Changes/Fame, depending on what type of quest you took or what choice you made.(abandoned or completed it)
Multiple side quests can be selected and completed at a time, but this means you’ll have more load to carry. Even when not selected at the quest bar (extend it to view more), they can still be completed by returning to their designated NPC with whatever favor they asked of you. If you do accept multiple quests, try letting them be from different locations, so you won’t have to keep going back and forth just for turning one in.
The best way to earn loads of EXP, Gold coins, Platinum Coins, equipment and levelling up your skills at the same time would be by taking on Nefia (dungeons) with strong monsters. You’ll also earn some Fame on the side which increases your reputation in the town. Completing dungeons also gives Nefia Points used for upgrading your Nefia Covenant which in turns buffs you up even more!
Remember some NPCs
At some times there is no guidance on how to complete the NPC quests other than which location it belongs to at the left of its description. In this case, it’s better to draw out the map on the right and see which NPC’s are standing where. Do this by tapping on their names (or point) and following the line to where they are standing. Memorize this feature or even better: the names and faces, to complete a quest faster instead of going all around the map, figuring out who’s who.
Carry food all the time
Carrying food is very much needed, as you may have noticed a “Starving” status next to your profile. This indicates your satiety is quite low and HP, MP and SP recovery is slowed. Yes, eating at an Inn will satisfy hunger by a bit, but if your planning on travelling long distances, then you’d better find a stable food source. Innkeepers sell food at a cheap price; but if you’re low on cash or refreshes, then monsters can also drop meat which can be cooked using a cooking station of any sort or eaten raw (if digestible). Remember that the bigger the party, the more food you want to carry so everyone is fighting in high spirits( and gains more EXP)
Found cooking stations like a Portable Cooking Tool, Pot or Bonfire can cook meat which in turn heightens satiety levels and increases your stat potential more than when eaten raw. Remember that even cooked food spoils over time, so always carry a Refrigerator, Cooler Box or anything to keep it fresh. Note that food spoils even when the game is closed (read food expiration description).
Getting tired is part of the journey, but when Sleepy have a high-quality Mattress, Sleeping Bag or bed nearby to lay down your head. You also have the choice to sleep with an ally rather than alone which increases their relationship and skill potential. No matter the bed, there exists a chance to dream, causing the occurrence of certain good events like free Gold coins, random skill potential increases, getting a Lucky Day buff, or bad events like instead losing some gold and mutating out of the blue.
Stay out of Etherwind
Etherwind is strange weather where blue particles are seen moving upwards and hastens Ether Disease, something you can prevent, but never totally cure. This causes mutantions to appear which will start to show mostly bad symptoms over time, but can as of now not kill you. Either way, you’ll have to head to shelter in any nearby town by talking to an Innkeeper, moving back home and maybe sleep/walk/exercise the time out or use a (one time) Portable Shelter until it passes. Running a Nefia is also a good option, but time there moves normally, so have a Scroll of Return ready for when you want to escape. Healers cannot cure Ether disease, but the symptoms can be cured randomly by a Potion of Cure Ether Disease or Potion of Cure Corruption, but be aware these also remove “good” mutations. Some equipment (or race like Elea) may slow Ether disease from spreading, but this does not mean you won’t mutate at all.
Upgrade your skills
Skills are obtained by talking to a Trainer in some locations like Vernis and asking him to Learn a Skill which requires loads of Platinum Coins(gained through completing quests, jobs, Nefia, etc). Train Skill upgrades your skill potential while Special Training Skillpoints further upgrade that skill’s level, depending on their potential. Skills differ in strength and quality, so always keep on training them to maximize their potential.
Learn some Magic type skills
Each class and race has their own magic or physical related skills of which more can be learned by reading skill books, talking to a (Guild) Trainer or just upgrading a certain weapon’s relevant skill (Two hand/Long Sword/Polearm/Etc.). Learning a new skill means you’ll need to invest a lot of time upgrading your Literacy skill and try a bunch of times before it gets added to your menu of Magic skills. Each skill has its own cast requirements and differs in function, so be sure to check out their description before attempting to read or cast them.
Make use of Quick use buttons
Lastly to be mentioned are the quick use buttons that save you the hassle of going into the inventory to switch between weapons, eat food, cast magic, throw an item drink potions, etc. They can be rearranged and are at your immediate disposal located next to your bag , each serving a different function indicated by their icons.
