INTRODUCTION

        Hi there! Well, as I already said in the Update Section, now I'm

working hard to complete this FAQ. For this FAQ, I'm preparing the
complete general list, soldier list, and walktrough for others
characters... I almost done the general type list! I'll update this
version soon!

        And for the great Dragon Force 2 players ! If you guys want to
discuss a little about the game in hope to exchange some ideas on the
game, you can send me e-mail to grandc@indosat.net.id I'll be very
happy if you can help me to complete this FAQ!!!


ABOUT THE GAME

        What I think of Dragon Force 2...
        I'll start off with the first thing you'll probably notice. The
anime intro is GREATLY improved over the first. The animation quality
and music were both very well done. when you start a game up you are
given the choice of picking from 6 of the 8 rulers again. The other 2
you can only get after you beat it,like in DF. After chooseing your
ruler you are taken to the traditional Administration Mode, were you can

take care of domestic affairs.
        This time however there are a few new options. You are now able
to create your own weapons and items by combining minerals found in
mines(showed on the main map) and some of your crapier weapons. This Is
REALLY cool. You know have the ability to equip 2 items to each
character now instead of 1. The main map is VASTLY different from the
first DF. The scaling is better now and there are trancparent clouds
hovering over the map (WHOOPEEE!!). New for the battle scenes. New ALL
of the characters with the exception of 2 have there own faces. No more
of that same picture for a different character crap. All of the
commanders animate much better now, although they do seem a little
smaller. There are ALOT more types of troops now, and the ability to
have 2 different types of troops in your army. Other than that stuff the

battles are pretty much the same. Your commanders can now use 6
different spells instead 3. The look of the spells themselves are a
mixed bag. Many of the older, cooler looking spells in the first DF like

Wein's "Power Storm" have been seriously down graded in there look. But
most of the newer spells like "Earthquake" and "Meteor Rain" really look

cool. I just wish they all looked that cool. The music is not as good as

it was in the first ether. Its not horrible, but it is a down grade from

the first. Well, thats about it. All in all DF2 is a good sequal, I
think it's better than the first. If you import Saturn games be sure to
pick this one up.

        Dragon Force II is the best strategy game for Sega Saturn. This
is the sequel of Dragon Force I. This game can be pretty confusing to
those that never play the prequel, so I'll explain them as much detail
as possible...
        This game sets in a land called Legendra. There is eight big
kingdom. You play as one of the king. The eight kings have a diffrent
story. Your mission is to reunite all the king and save Legendra from
Madruk (evil who wants to destroy Legendra). I'll list the kings and
their kingdom.


KINGS OF LEGENDRA

1. Evers - Lord Of Higlanders (Highland Kingdom)
        He is the main character in this game. The Highland Kingdom is
located south of Legendra.

2. Gangas - Guardian of the Forest (Bozack Nation)
        The strongest king in Legendra. He has great strength, offence,
defence, etc. Bozack is located in the south-east of Legendra.

3. Shen - Thief Master (Topaz Kingdom)
        Shen is a good choice for a beginner. He has strong generals,
and he seeks the Dragon Force destiny first. At the beginning of the
game, Kaede will join without battle, and the other kings always join
after you beat them. Topaz is located north-west of Legendra on a small
island

4. Batsu - Lord Of Fandaria (Fandaria Empire)
        Batsu scenario is very hard at beginning. But after Shen joins,
everything will be easy. He is a great fighter. Fandaria located west of

Legendra.

5. Kaede - Princess Of Samurai (Izumo Nation)
        Kaede is not a good character. She is weak, and her magic
sucks...  Izumo is located east of Legendra. By the way, she is Shen's
girlfriend !!!

6. Sanice - Magic Queen (Tradnoa Kingdom)
        Sanice is a great magician. She has the best magic, and her
magic
meter is very quick. Tradnor is located in the center of Legendra.

7. Renie - Queen Of Elves (Moon Palace)
         She isn't a great fighter, but she has great magic. Moon Palace

is located   north of Legendra.

8. Adelva - The New Black Knight Of Masked Death (Tristan Empire)
        Adel probably's the best character in this game. He is a great
fighter and a great magician, he has got a lot of great generals too.
Tristan is located between Moon Palace and Tradnor.


TYPE OF SOLDIERS

        In Dragon Force, each general can bring 100 soldiers to battle.
The difference between Dragon Force I and II is the way to put the
soldiers in a battle. Dragon Force II has a complex system, you can give

2 type of troops for one generals to use in a battle (the maximum
capacity is 100). For example : You can give Calvalry to Evers, but
Calvalry weak against Hawk Knight, so you can give Dragon to support
Evers's Calvalry !
Great isn't it ! Anyway, this is the troops list as far as I know :

1. Soldiers
        This is your basic soldiers.
2. Thieves
        Fast troops, but they have a low defence.
3. Monks
        Avarage troops. Have a good offence and defence.
4. Archers
        Long range attacker. Have a great formation.
5. Mages
        Use lots of mages.  Mages are the second best players next to
dragons ofcourse.  I don't know if this is known to people since I've
never looked for it.  With mages, you can do almost anything.  All of
the monarchs I've played I've given them mages.  You can take out an
entire army and general with probably a minimum of 2 casualties, but if
you're really good, you won't lose one at all.  It saves having to
recruit all the time and handy during those in-the-pinch battles.
6. Samurais
      Strong troops. Have a great offence and defence.
7. Beasts
        Fast troops. Great for fight Calvalry, but not much else.
8. Calvalries
        Strong and fast troops. Great for fight generalsand goblins.
9. Robots
        Have the best defence, but are slow.
10. Robot-Calvalry
        As strong as Robots, but as fast as Calvalry.
11. Fyling-Robots
        As strong as Robots, but attack from air.
12. Harpy
        Fast troops. Attack from air and are good against most other
troops.
13. Birdsman
        They are faster than Hawk Knights (They swoop down and jab with
their weapon) and are pretty much good against everything, yes even
dragons, except for archers.  Archers will just tear straight through
them.
14. Zombies
        Like the first Dragon Force, they are fast and strong, but
killed easily by mages.
15. Ghosts
        Great for long range attacks and short range attacks.
16. Hawk Knights
        Great Air Attacks. Fast and strong and very good against
Calvalry
17. Chimera
        Best for fight generals. Attack from air.
18. Dragons
        Perfect troops. Have the best offence and defence.
19. Goblins
        This is Madruk's troops. As strong as Dragon.
20. Demons
        This is Madruk's special soldiers. Stronger than Dragon!!!


TYPE OF GENERALS

        The Generals in Dragon Force are variety. They have their own
fighting
style, command style, magic, etc. This is their type list...

1. Knights
        Well rounded General. They are strong, kill soldiers easly, good
in
duels, and have some useful magic. Basically, they command Soldiers. Use

them to assist your Dragon Forces.

2. Fighters
        Faster than Knight but have low defencive. Their magic isn't as
good as
Knight but very handy in duels.

3. Thieves
        Not very good generals. They don't have high offencive,
defencive,
don't have good magics... But they are fast, very fast!

4. Calvalries
        Stronger than Knights. However they aren't as many as knights.
Don't
let them stay in your kingdoms, because they're the real killer!

5. Archers
        Commands Archers. Not very good in duels, their magic isn't very
good
either. I won't use them as an attacker, I use them to defend my
kingdoms.

6. Mages
        Have a lot of killer magics. Use this general to crush an enemy
with a
lot of soldiers. Never use them in duels!

7. Healers
        Their magic is to heal themself and to resurrect some dead
soldiers.
Some of them have Charm magic!

8. Spirit Users
        They are better than Mages. Their magic is the real killer
magic.
Summons a crazy creatures that'll destroy a lot of soldiers.

9. Robots
        The best general in duel! They have a great attack power. But
they
don't have a good magic. Their Magic Meter is slow and they have a few
MP.

10. Robot Commandoes
        Semiliar to fighters, but command robots. They are very powerful

general, because they can command such as great soldiers.

11. Beasts
        Wild generals with wild attack and magic. They are great to
destroy
enemy's soldiers, and also good in duels.

12. Samurais
        Good general. As strong as Knight, I think. Use them to attack
enemy's
kingdoms. They donmt have good magic...

12. Ninjas
        Semiliar to Samurais, but faster. Their magic is worse, tough...
But
they is very powerful in duels.

14. Special Soldiers
        There's a few Special Soldiers. They're very loyal and very
handy in
battle. They are Teacher, Punk, Dragon, Duelist, Servant etc.


ITEM MIXING LIST (Kamui's section)

Building weapons

        this section will help you with Dragon Force 2's annoying yet
cool weapon
building system. I've listed all of the combinations Ive found. More
will be added as I find more.

Crystal and Stone help
        I figured I should help you out with the names of each mineral
and crystal, especially for those of you who dont know much japanese.

- Magic Crystal
        Redish crystals pointing outward, usually enhances the magical
abilities of an item.
- Power Crystal
       Green gem,adds Strength to an item.This item is probably used the

least.
- Wind Crystal
       White crystals pointing outward.
- Hard Crystal
       I'm not sure what this one is called. It has a purplish color to
it and is covered in small bumps.
- Light Crystal
       White gems.
- Thunder Crystal
       Yellow crystals pointing outward.
- Gold Stone
       Golden rock. Not much else to say.
- Iron Stone
       Very shiney, silver stone. Metallic.
- Silver Stone
       Tan with with a strange spiral to it.
- Copper stone
       Has a rust color to it. Very rare for some reason.
- Dragon Stone
       I wish I new EXACTLY what this does,but I think it has all of the

properties of the other stones, but also has its own original
combinations.
- Ore
       Supposedly there is a material called "ore",but I have yet to
find it.

TIPS & TRICKS

        As you know, Dragon Force 2 have a lot of soldiers. However
special ones come often when you mix certain materias (soldier
scroll,with two other crystals etc;). The same thing applies to special
eq.  The only problem I find with this process is gathering materials.
Crystals tend to come only once in a while.  Herbs can only be gather
seasonally in villages. And most difficult,  are the silver and gold
stones(they tend to only come once a life time #.# and it's the major
necessity) So far I've only made a magic rod,  basta sword, mystical
steel spike club. This issue is a major thing I would like to talk about

because I've never played any other game with such an option. (Thanks to

Michael L. Nguyen for this info !) - See above for the item mixing list.

        If you know any japanese. Talking to your characters many times
will get them to release hints on how to make certain Items, but they
NEVER tell the whole combination.

        Like the first Dragon Force, now you can command generals while
paused. This is a great way to save the time.

        Dragon Force 2 doesn't have Search commands. To earn items, the
only way to do is auto-Search at the Domestic Affair Becon. If you want
to find a lot of useful items, separate your general to all of the
kingdoms, villages, and caves before the Domestic Affair Becon.

        If the enemy runs from battle with you, immediately pause the
game and then deploy your units.  This will immediately attack the
fleeing armies when you unpause the game.  Make sure you check which way

the retreating generals are moving so you can aim your armies the same
way.  After winning enter your castle again.

        A quick way to earn a lot of merits is to attack enemy generals
in the caves. This generals will never dies from battle each time I
beated them. And they have a great level. This is a great way to build
your general's level. The only thing you have to know is the knight
generals have the silence magic, so fight them with the non-magician
generals, and the mage generals have the earth rave and lightning magic
that can destroy your soldiers easly, I usually fight this one with
harpies.
