    Character Guide for Patapon 3
    By Dennis Setiawan aka _Agidyne
    7 July 2011
     This Guide is made to help questions for those players out there asking,
    'Which one is better?' or 'What should I go for?' and such. Writing this, I
    will do my best to not be biased, since I don't want to force people to do
    something. This guide may only be published or used at www.gamefaqs.com. And
    as a note, this will be my first FAQ post to www.gamefaqs.com. And as for
    comments, which I don't really mind, If you really need to, E-mail at
    neji.setiawan@yahoo.com. Now, I don't think there's much more to say,
    so let's move on!
    Version History.
     07/07/11-- The Beginning- Thought of the idea, started typing.
     08/09/11-- Version 0.97 - The debut of this FAQ.
     08/12/11-- Version 0.98 - Minor and some moderate corrections, planning
                some big or many updates in the upcoming weeks.
     08/24/11-- Version 0.99 - Added DoJ section, upcoming sections yet to come.
     09/11/11-- Version 1.00 - The true legal version of the FAQ, ready to be
                launched. Added some new stuffs and corrected some mistakes.
     12/10/11-- Version 1.01 - After some hibernation, some minor mistakes were
                corrected and restated the fact that I will make updates ASAP.
                After version 1.00, there will be very few updates to this FAQ.
     First of all, What is this 'Character' which we're gonna discuss?
    I'm not talking about Tekken or Street Fighter here. I'm talking about
    Patapon 3, where you press 4 times and rest. Press. Rest. Sounds boring?
    Then why play? Okay, now in Patapon 3, we call them 'Uberheroes' or UH for
    short. There are a total of 21 different varieties of uberheroes which are
    divided into 3 groups which are:
     - The spear class
     - The shield class
     - The archer class
     When creating a new game, you will be asked to choose your starting UH's
    class. Choose carefully now, select which fits your style as you cannot
    change that class until you level-up until level 15.
     From now on, once you choose your starter, you do missions to level-up
    your Uberhero until it unlocks new classes that are unique to each other.
    I will not explain this specifically, you should seek other FAQs for this
     With the discussions of the the UH's strengths and weaknesses, I'll put
    ratings of the UHs. Please do note that the rating is purely based on
    my opinion, so don't barge in later on to yell at me about the ratings,
    but I'm more than welcome to hear about rating complaints, please also
    provide reasonable reasons to why do you think the rating should be 
    changed and I'll think about it.
    I will now present of the contents so far into something like this:

    A. The Spear class                                              [SPER]
    In this section  I'm just gonna give introduction to the classes common
    So okay, Spears. What do you expect when you have a spear at your hand?
    Do you throw it? or do you stab with it? either way, the spear-classes
    here are your average hero who deal lots of damage, inflicts heavy and
    occasional critical and has a moderate defense. The 7 different UH each
    have their unique traits and skills. So, that's pretty much it.

                       it just keeps getting better. Don't stop! Keep throwing! Go
    Rating		:  Recommended (8.4).  
    A2. Kibbada				[KIBB]

    		  'Mad Charge' . Charge at foes at high speed with a glowing
    	           mantle that boosts attack power. Hit hard, and back off!
    	           This pretty much explains everything.
    Overview	:  Your typical horse warrior. You gallop to your foes, and
    	           back off. This can be annoying at times since even though
    	           you defend, he will still charge forward. Very bad against
    		   dying salamanders. He can carry shields and with mastered
    		   class skill, gives you about 7-9 amount of hits, Great.
                       That 7-9 Hits is used to Burn, Freeze or to Stagger foes,
                       so Kibbada's use when maximized is epic. UH Mode, and
                       all is swept away. Ride your horses high, Paladin!
    Rating          :  Useful (8.5).

    		   'Concentrate'. Long-lasting boost for attack power of entire

    		   Oh yes. A 20 second boost of attack that can be stacked up
    		   to 3 times, a total of 60 seconds of double damage. Painful.
                       Not to mention adding Team Aid 1&2, well... it makes it into
                       3.5X the damage. Not painful enough ?
    Overview	:  Piekrons. Yes, they are capable of many things. Boosting your
    		   power, Dazzle foes with lightning and they carry shields. They
    		   are great but they are relatively weak in HP. Nevertheless, He
    		   is a fine choice for support and offense. Nice lightnings out
                       there in the rain, Frog!
    Rating          :  Useful (8.5).

    		   'Flamespin'. Plough forward while deflecting enemy ranged
    		   attacks with flaming spears attached to rapidly spinning
    		   wheels. This UH mode is used most effectively with long
    		   reach weapons, Pikes. Your wheels will enlarge as large as
    		   the pike. If you haven't seen a pike you should see it.
                       Really. And it also deflects projectiles. Nice UH mode.
    Overview	:  Ah. Something new to the spear classes. These are melee
    		   troops, They deal good damage. When equipped with pikes,
    		   their reach is awesome. Mastering his class skill lets you
    		   strike  6 times in 1 command, awesome. I'd recommend to free
      		   1 set skill slot for Rain Dance if you have it or let your
    		   army, Ton do it for the power-up you will get. So, overall,
                       Great spear class UH, with an average UH mode. Swimming in
                       the rain, Fish? Careful not being stabbed!

    		   into enemy lines while the original stays safely at the
                       rear. Very good UH mode. Similar to Kibbada's UH mode but
                       less risk involved. Great, huh?
    Overview	:  Pyokoriders are the fastest attackers in Patapon 3. They
    		   still have the Defend issue like Kibbada, but it's UH mode
    		   is an improvement.They drop their shields in exchange to
    		   be able to ride Warhorses, which have MUCH better stats
    		   than ordinary horses. So, yeah,nice UH, Very quick attacks,
                       and a good UH Mode. Gallop faster, Rabbit!
    Rating          :  Deadly (9.2).

    		    battle, but are vulnerable at range.'

    		   'Thwack-mash'. Attack with weapon-chariot combo. First,
    		   knock down foe with weapon, then grind them with wheels of
    		   chariot. What a cruel UH mode. The wheel part doesn't hurt
    		   as much as it looks. (Too bad..) In here you really want
                       to tumble your enemy here, since it's great, breaks all
                       UH Mode.
    Overview	:  These melee axe users are some heavy attackers, unstoppable
    		   when attacking. Not really having the 'WOW' in defense,
    		   they use chariots which are quite enough. Nice UH, but I
    		   think he has this 'Reckless' nature. Because of how fast
                       he depletes his own HP (staying on the front line, duhh...)
                       that's why, he equips Greatsword! Smack 'em  hard, Deer!
    Rating          :  Deadly (9.0)

    		   'Shwoop-fling'. Attacks near and far simultaneously.
    		   Throws spears to pierce far-away foes, and spin
    		   wheels to toss those nearby. Meh. Those wheels will
    		   mostly never hit. And the spear thrown, Does medium
                       damage. Not a very good UH Mode.
    Overview	:  Oh yes. Angels. Or Birds? whatever. They are able
                       to use shields, chariots, and lances which makes
                       Charibassa great at defense, offense and support.
                       They heal, boost attack power, and are able to
                       inherit class skills from other spear-classes. And
                       Charibassa has probably the highest critical rate.
                       probably the highest rate in Patapon 3. They are great.
                       But you should minimize the use of your UH mode.
    Rating          :  Extremely Versatile (8.8).
    		So that's it for spears. Lots of pointy spears there.
    B. The Shield Class.						[SHLD]
    In this section  I'm just gonna give introduction to the classes common
    So okay, shields. When we're carrying a shield, we will use it to block
    attacks, yes? That is the main purpose of shield classes here. To give
    protection to those with weak HP and taking the brunt of damage from the
    foes. They are not the best damage dealers, but some do. And some don't.
    The 7 different UH each have their unique way to attack. And only with
    the shield classes UH can you see their charged attacks have different
    animations. For example, Taterazay's Uppercut and the Infamous OHKO
    Blade charge of Grenburr's. So that's pretty much it.

                      Great UH Mode.
    Overview	: Myamsars, despite having the same big body like Tondenga,
                      has much more agility and technique in his attacks, making
                      him an adept, swift assassin. His ability to truly ruin one
                      foe he locks in is truly remarkable. But, for more advanced
                      tips on Myamsars, please refer to the following extract
                      written by Molivious :
                      'When you hit ~0.18 attack speed, it's best that you stop
                      putting effort on taking it lower. Since the animation
                      limit of Myamsars are about 11-13 attacks, excessive
                      attack speed are a waste (unlike Alosson, who has nearly
                      infinite animation limits). Instead, focus on increasing
                      his strength or critical rate.'
                      'The "Spoon and Fork" build doesn't work on normal pons,
                      so most of the time, Shiv/Blade or Shiv/Shiv S.U combo
                      beats the normal weapons in terms of damage. And you can
                      get Slash Master set skill from Grenburr too.'

    Overview	:  The ultimate tank is here! Dropping their swords to carry
    		   greatshields, they are great in defense and not-so-bad at
    		   HP. Your damage output will be severely decreased though.
    		   Now you attack with your greatshields. Minimum damage with
    		   quite high Knockback ratio. Not good. You shouldn't attack,

    		   because they are great! Even though he can't carry shields,
    		   He has an extraordinary HP due to greatswords granting
    		   lots of bonus HP and resistances. Not the best tanker, but
    		   he's best attacker of all of them! The best one-hitters in
    		   the game, they can deal 999999 damage easily with critical.
                       But with all of this, he's a very slow mover. Jump high,
                       and bring them down, Demon!
    Rating          : Very Useful (8.9).
                     So that's it for shields. They come in lots of varieties.
    C. The Archer Class.						[ARCH]
    In this section  I'm just gonna give introduction to the classes common
    Oh yes. Archers. My favorite. You got a bow in your hand, what will you do?
    Fire it. Where? Somewhere far from the target. That gives you the idea of
    Archers in Patapon 3. They do quite powerful long-range attacks from a safe
    distance behind the front lines. But they have a very weak defense. Much
    weaker than Spear-classes. That is why they stand behind their shields and
    spears. And since they shoot projectiles into the air, the destination of the
    projectile is affected by wind conditions. Note this. Arrows, Sounds, and
    spores travel the best when there is a tailwind. Well, that's pretty much it.

    		   attack speed less than 2.00 makes you do the same command
    		   twice in 1 measure. So if you have Quickshot 6 and you are
                       using Raijinpon's  Bow (Attack speed 1.62), You will be
    		   firing 6 X 2 X 2 = 24 arrows in one measure. And it has
    		   already burn effects by itself, too. Great UH Mode.
    Overview	:   Your basic archer. Shoots arrows from the rear to deal

    D. Additional FAQs and Credits					[CEND]
     And that settles the end of the main part. After some boring days,
    fun days and frustrating days,The time has come. To part ways and free this
    piece of writing to the free world of the Internet.But as a last farewell,
    this optional piece of writing is written too. I will try my best to update
    and check GameFAQs as often as I can although, Sadly, it's not possible.
    I will remain here, at my home, watching..
    D1. Depths of Jealousy (DoJ)		 [DEOJ]
     Welcome, fellow end-gamers, to the depths of Tomb of Tolerance! If you think
     Tomb of Tolerance was a major pain... DoJ will burst your heads. Twice harder
     than ToT (at least, be warned) and only TWO floors, yes, two floors. Sounds
     easy, right? Well, I will now give you an insight of these 2 levels and you 
     will see what are you going to face, DoJ, the evil dungeon that has captured
     so many players playing it over and over again, some people have been doing 
     it for ~700 hours. Feel the pain of them!
     Depths of Jealousy.
     [Multi] Black Dragon Libera.
     Suggested level = 26+
     Rewards = ? 
    That's what it says on your PSP.
     As you can see, it's supposed to be multiplayer, since you can't always find
     good friends to tag along with you, people have found ways to trespass the 
     Multiplayer restriction. More will be explained later.
     Now, an insight on the floors.
     1st floor : Recommended level is 28+. This is purely my opinion, don't barge
                 in and yell at me: 'I can do this at level 26!' or so.
     There are 3 rooms, divided by an iron door that also trigger an axe falling
     down through you. To avoid it, move really close so that you can't move any
     closer. There are some ways to trigger this switch solo, which are:
     - Jump, quickly cancel the command, then move.
     - A Tondenga Charge attack, followed by move.
     - Have Ton as Yarida or Piekron, attack so he jumps.
     The third option is the safest to play, but note that options 2 and 3 will 
     cost Kan's life. No Kan can survive 40K damage. Option 1 will force you to 
     break fever, but Ton can die.
     Now you can get inside solo, now to get your army inside too. Get an UH whose
     UH Mode can make him move. This will fall to Grenburr or Tondenga. Move, and
     bring your whole army in. 
     Now your army gets in, its showtime. Let's see your army's challengers.
     Floor 1, Room 1 : Deaths, Balrogs and 1 Gargoyle. Not much fight.
     Floor 1, Room 2 : Deaths, Balrogs, Flame Salamanders and 1 Gargoyle. Back off
                       from dying Salamanders.
     Floor 1, Room 3 : Deaths, Balrogs, Flame and Ice Salamanders and 1 Gargoyle.
                       Now the fight gets intense. You gotta kill the 2 salamanders
                       at one command to make things easier. I would like to warn 
                       you that these guys explosions are deadly. Stay away from 
                       them, you should be fine.
    Deaths have approximately 700.000 HP, while Balrogs have ~1.100.000 HP. 
    Salmanders have approximately 600.000 HP. You can see how tough these people
    are so be armed well. This is just an estimation to let people see how powerful
    is this dungeon.
    At the end of Room 3, a door must be opened with a key. Do so and find either
    a Gold or Jewel chest at the end of the 1st floor. Hooray! Move on to the 2nd
    floor, which there all of you 1st timers will see 'True' DoJ pain.
    2nd floor : Recommended level is 30+. Please get level 32 for a better chance 
                of survival on this tough floor. The difficulty of this floor is
                Tripled or more. Yes, at least TRIPLED. Why? Well let's have some
                insights on the 2nd floor.
    The beginning door will ask you to use another key and once you step forward,
    you can pretty much see why it's call THE 'Pain'. A hit from the axes not
    properly armed can hit 50K or worse. And that's just axe. You must be thinking
    that after one neck-breaking axe, it's over right? well, these fast-spinning 
    axes are always there for you, to start 'till end. Even you finished all of
    the Monsters they are still there, trying their best to fail you. How sad.
    Now let's see Living challengers.
    Floor 2, 1st axe : Just swinging never ending axes. There's a switch that stops
                       the axes from moving that is AFTER you endured the axes.
                       Pretty much useless in single-player mode.
    Floor 2, 2nd axe : Blue Cyclops, Yellow Gargoyles, and Big Golems. All in their
                       empowered forms huh? If you have problems killing these guys
                       you don't stand a chance against what's beyond this three.
    Floor 2, 4th axe : Blue Cyclops, Yellow Gargoyles, Big Golems and Green Balrog.
                       Remember Green Balrog? He's back to bring you PAIN. Takes 
                       time to kill, which I suspect him to have 2.500.000 HP. That
                       is my guess. If you past him, you have a good chance to 
                       finish the floor... only one more barrier stands...
    Floor 2, 5th axe : All 4 with the Black Dragon Libera. Oh yea. 5 Huge monsters 
                       all determined to kill you. Black Dragon is easier to kill
                       than Green Balrog, assuming about 2.000.000 HP. He barely 
                       does anything until 15 seconds when he breathes an almost
                       never-ending poison breath that hits you ~1500 per hit.
                       Not good. Now the key to defeat the Dragon is positioning.
                       Get it right and you're on your way. Screw it up and die in
                       pain. Unless you're a 400+ hour DoJ veteran, that is. After
                       killing the Green Balrog in the previous axe, stay right 
                       there. Make your Hatapon stand as far as possible to the 
                       edge of the 4th axe switch. From there, you could reach all
                       the 5 while stopping the axes from killing you. This is 
                       crucial for beginners at DoJ. And Oh, there's axes....
    Floor 2, 6th axe : After the Dragon is defeated, no more monsters spawn. Just 
                       you and axes... again. This is it! 
    At the end of 6th axe a door which needs yet another key to enter can be your
    evil nightmare. It's either you have no more keys or due to standing there,
    waiting for the animation to end and letting the 7th axe hit you freely. Even 
    doors hate you. After that grab your reward, Either Jewel or the fabled Purple 
    Jewel chest. Note that Chests from the end of 2nd floor are always level 25 and
    above. Purple Jewel Chests range from level 29-32, netting you fine equipments.
    And that's the No.1 reason to why spend more than 150 hours playing Patapon 3.
    Now on to how to survive the evil dungeon.
    First floor is not restricting too much, since it's fairly easy. Tondenga and
    Grenburr is to go, any decent equipments can win the day.
    But if you want to win 2nd floor, By all means get a Tondenga (I know there are
    videos doing full DoJ without Tondenga, but for beginner or safety's sake). No
    Grenburr, since it's defense is intolerable. I did my first full DoJ with a 
    level 31 Tondenga, and you could see my full stats :
    - Thor +7
    - Bunny Hood +13
    - Alldemonium Shield +14
    - Crono Riggers +11
    This set will grant you bonus 50% defense to all attacks, so it's a one to
    go after. Using this set gives me:
    Stamina  : 44741
    Strength : 1-99999
    Defense  : 266
    With using 6 set skills :
    - Peerless Hedgehog
    - Strike Master
    - Peerless Deer
    - Peerless Bovine
    - Club Attack
    - Damage +
    And mastered Energy field 10%, 20%, and 30%. This is a good investment for a 
    better survival so the positioning tactic can be abandoned (if you wish to).
    My Thor is weak, +7. So for those with better equipment, will have a better 
    chance to clear DoJ.
    I see complaints from people that finding Alldemonium Shield is way too hard,
    so I tried Molivious' set w/o Alldemonium Shield, and here's how it goes :
    - A good weapon capable of killing foes quickly. A good Susurapon or Stagger Axe
      enhanced at least [St] +30 will suit well.
    - Any helm, preferably Lightning, with [W] +30 enhancement or higher.
    - Octagon Shield +10
    - Crono Riggers +11
    This will make runs tougher but still manageable. Here are the stats, I tried
    this at level 32 :
    Stamina  : 62127
    Strength : 1-99999
    Defense  : 356
    With using the same set skills and class skills as above, for me.
    As you can see, Crono Riggers is irreplaceable since it nullifies criticals, 
    those axes will always do critical. And why have helm [W] rather than Super
    Unique helms? because, [W] enhancement can reduce slash attack damage by
    20%, a free 20% energy field, if you would say. It has a noticeable effect 
    when you run through these axes you'll get about 3K per hit using my set.
    It's worse than doing Thor set which will hit 1500 per axe hit, but still
    manageable due to extra stamina boost. 
    * Please note that the 20% slash damage reduction from [W] enhancements
      doesn't mean it's 70%-20%=50%. It essentially means 20% of that 70%.
      So, 20% of 70%=14%, 70-14%=56% slash damage reduction.
    Now to set skill importance.
    1. Peerless Hedgehog  : If you don't have this set skill, don't go to the 2nd 
                            floor. Without this, it's just impossible solo.
    2. Peerless Deer      : Your lifesaver, at least mine. Saved my life dozens of
                            times, always good to have one.
    3. Peerless Bovine    : Only use this when using Thor, I was wrong to use it on
                            the alternative set, try getting something else for it.
                            But for Thor set, it really helps you to kill monsters
                            faster since Thor's minimal damage is really low.
                            That means less axes.
    4. Strike/Slash Master: Always get this on Thor/Alternative set. Please, double
                            attack boost is irreplaceable.
    5. Damage +           : Always good to have it. Title says everything.
    6. Club Attack or
       Battle Axe attack  : I was wrong, yet again for not switching club attack.
                            perhaps this is the reason why I have such a hard time 
                            using this set. Don't switch this off.
    In general, Peerless Hedgehog is a MUST, Get 3 offensive set skills, and 2 of
    your choice.
    Your army : Well, it doesn't really matter, they all die at the second floor 
    anyway. But just to give you a nice head start, get a Wonda for Kan, Grenburr
    with Fertilizer set skill for Chin and Piekron/Charibassa/Yarida for Ton.
    Have fun farming!
