IPAD Games: Animation Throwdown Tips & Hints

Animation Throwdown

Beginner tips:

Quests: Follow them

Keep following all those quests especially in the beginning.

They are relatively simple and offer bonus rewards.

Decks: 

Customize your deck as soon as possible.

How:  Go to the “Deck” option on the main menu.

Turn “Auto Deck” off.

The top row is the deck, you are playing with.  The bottom is all your extra cards.

Drag and drop your cards that you do not want to the bottom row.

Place all the better cards into the top row.

The pink, blue and green are the better cards.  The gray cards are the lowest tier.

Upgrade: 

Level up your cards

You do not need to level up all your cards.  Start with the rarer ones in your deck. (Pink, Blue & Greens)

Still in your deck option from the front menu, click on one card from your deck.

Once you click it, there is an option to upgrade the card at the bottom.

In order to level the card up, you will need some “Giggitywatts” or “Coins.”

How much it takes to level up a card depends on how rare it is.

You can also hit the “Max Out” button at the top of the card if you just want to max the card out.

Fuse:

Make your card even more powerful!

When you have maxed out / leveled up two identical cards, you can fuse them together to make one better card.

I do this a lot with my extra grey cards because you are going to need grey cards in your deck, so you might as well make them as powerful as they can be.

Research:

Research those combos!

During battles, you can stack cards onto other cards if the combo has been researched.

Click on “Research” from the main menu.

Click on one of the research pods and pair two cards together.  It usually takes a few hours to a day to research most combos. (It depends on the rarity of cards on how long it takes)

I pick one card out of my deck and try to research as many combos with that card.  Basically, keep doing research until every card in my deck can be paired with another card or multi cards.

You can also obtain rare cards from research.

Money:

Buying extra cards……

You do not need to buy extra cards if you level up your cards and research combos.

If you just want to support the creators and get rare cards faster, then go for it.

 

Black Desert Online: Noob killing fields

Total hot bed areas for noob killing spree:

I have not been a BDO noob for a very long time but it never fails, whenever I try to level up a new character these are the areas, I get viciously slaughtered down by other players the most.

Areas:

Hexe Sanctuary

Witch’s Chapel

Rhutum Outstation

Rhutum Sentry Post

Mansha Forest

Catfishman’s Camp

Why?

You may wonder why so much killing and bloodshed happens in these areas.  It’s because these are the areas that a character will hit that 50 level mark. So to all the gaming psychopath’s out there, it makes you easy pickings.

PVP is allowed after level 50 and above. Most players when they hit the level 50 mark, they are still not strong enough to fight off other players. Many predatory assholes will lay and wait for those noobs to wander through there.  My guess is the reasons why are as follows: 1. They want to lose Karma. Some people enjoy the bad guy aspects of this game. 2. They find it entertaining. 3. They think it will add clout with their other guild-ies and friends.  4. The noob has invaded their grinding spot. 5. They are mentally unstable.

Story time:

One time, I was at Hexe Sanctuary trying to defeat 2 million skeletons on my way to leveling up to 56 when I met a young wizard.  He stopped me in the middle of my bloodlust frenzy killing and started to chat.  He said to me “How are you today?” Before I could even press enter to type my reply, he had hit me over the head several times with his wizard staff.  I was dead on the spot.  He zipped out of there like a bitch.  I just sat there confused and wondered what the fuck just happened to me.  All I knew was that nice polite wizard was a piece of shit and it shook me to the core. I learned a valuable lesson that day.  I would never stop to have idle polite chit chat with somebody in combat areas and wizards are dead to me.

Pro Tips:

If you do have somebody hovering around or bothering you in combat areas, here is what you can do:

1.        Let them just kill you.  (I don’t recommend this because you will lose combat experience)

2.       Run away  (I do this fairly often because I worked hard on leveling up and don’t need to lose combat experience)

3.       Switch servers.  (You can switch servers every 15 minutes.)

4.       Try to kill them.  (Why not, give it a go…you might lose though)

5.       Message them and beg them to be your friend.  (I tried this once and was rejected)

6.       Report them to BDO for being bastards.  (Good luck with this..BDO will not help)

7.       Turn PVP off.  (I keep my PVP off but have still been killed)

Covet Fashion: Enable Rally

How to enable rallies:

You must belong to a Fashion House first.

Click on “Runaway Rally” at the top.

Scroll down and you will see “Rally Participation” with a toggle switch.

Toggle this on if you want to participate, toggle off if you do not.

Head of House or Officers have to start the rally but you have to enable it before one starts.

If you enable it after the rally has started; you will not be included until the next rally.
