Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Getting FREE Oranges/Glove/Mask! Do 30 Daily Prizes and Clan War actions.

If you log in 30 days IN A ROW you will get a Super Bonus daily prize which will be a random PRESENT that contains a random set of orange gear.

Also, if you want a FREE glove and free mask, do the clan wars and rank up. You will eventually get a free clan themed glove and mask.

[BTW, rings are rings, and are hard to get, let alone good ones!]

Since some Kongregaters are about to get their first 30 day login prize, I’m wondering if there are any tips from players on how best to open or collect your present?

If the Super Bonus present from the current Ninja Shop? Or is it 100% random? (could I get the Santa outfit?)

Should I use the present immediately? Or save it? Why or why not? What are some reasons I would open the present?

Why you should join Red Clan, the Kongregator’s clan

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / The clan to join is Aka Ryu Red clan. Armor Games is joining blue and hunting us.

People always ask in chat what clan to choose, and the answer is usually red. So I figure a topic showing that is warranted.

Kongregate is taking over the Red Clan (Aka Ryu).

While our enemies, Armor Games, are taking over the Blue clan.

Here is some discussion from Armor Gamers that I will quote about that here:

2 Armor Gamers:

"Guys from Armor if you want to help in the war against Kongregate players, join the blue clan (Aoi Hoiru)!… "

“so can you give me a writ of relaese so i ca join aoi hoiru i can contribute for armor games.”

“I have no free gold. I already wrote. If you are a low level will be easier to delete your character and start again. Personally, I did just that. I deleted my first character to level 50.”

Another Armor Gamer:

“can any of you guys give me a writ of resignation so i can join aoi hoiru to fight against kongregate?”

Yet another Armor Gamer:

“2. this clan business… im all for crushing kong, but I see there are 4 clans, can anyone tell me a bit about the others?”

More armor gamer comments:

“guys how can i leave a clan to join the AG clan ?”


“can any of you guys give me a writ of resignation so i can join aoi hoiru to fight against kongregate? please. my name in the game is kouroko and in hiratani(43,44) castle town gates.”

In other words. Definitely don’t join Blue (or Yellow). Join Red. Join Aka Ryu. Join Kongregate. :)

[if you are low level (below 20) it is very easy to Delete your character and start again imo, just level up at the highest territory (your level+3) in the forest]

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / It would be nice to have an official explanation on Soul Rest Scrolls...

I’ve never done it. But from what I understand the item keeps its stat categories, but when it raises back up it might not be exactly as you had it. Meaning the stats can be off plus or minus, by a certain amount. If it had 44 hp the first time, next time it might be 22 or 53

I wish they got rid of the whole “level the gear up” idea along with the scrolls. Just make the item match the user’s level, and keep the stats the same quality (scaled to level). Simple.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / ADD MORE TYPES OF ENEMIES

Originally posted by runeman64:

Isn’t Lut from Singapore?

Anyway, I’d say sticking with Japanese (or at least Asian) for the main game themes is for the best.

Here are my simple ideas for more enemies.

More Ninjas. More more more. Maybe I haven’t gone to the higest level of the game yet but I don’t see any ninja enemies except for 1 sometimes helping a boss. Man, we need more ninja. How about Ninja ambushes? They can happen anywhere. In an oni dungeon. On the field path. Maybe even in town. Simple explanation is that they are ninja hired by the story enemies to assassinate you. Give them lots of ninja skills early on.
Ninjas are cool. More ninja.

Warrior priest monks. Perhaps these guys guard certain spots of the map and to pass you must fight them?
Or maybe they are wandering monks. Maybe this enemy passes through the area from sign to sign, like a player. But is AI controlled.
They can be the opposite to the Ninja is that they concentate on Chi techniques, and earlier than you can.

More Oni types. These guys are so boring!
Blue blue blue oni.
Give them some techniques.
Maybe give them moves like Blanka’s ball technique and knock you down.
Maybe some of them throw firey rocks?
Maybe they go invisible. Have them do the 100% dodge roll.
Maybe some are bigger and divide into 2 oni when they are killed?

Ghost samurai armor.
Easy to add! Just make the body sprites of normal characters invisible, or mostly transparent and ghostly.
Their techniques would be about deadly strong sword slashes, but to beat them would be timer battles. To beat them you must stay away and dodge more than normal till their ghostly powers run out and their armor falls apart. (give them high HP and DEF, but have their HP decrease over time) You could beat them by physical power, but the smarter course is letting them run out of juice.
Maybe these guys guard Kanji ruins?

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / So, so, so many spammers in the game chat. A suggestion to fix it.

Every day, maybe every hour, there is some spammer filling the chat room with junk keyboard mashing. I’ve never seen so much spamming.

So here’s a pretty easy suggestion in my opinion: combine sentences that people post in a row into 2 lines.

Here’s an example of a spammer.

JGHX: klsdfljsdf
JGHX: asdasd
JGHX: esdsv
JGHX: W$Sdfsdf
JGHX: er45r4wef
JGHX: fsdfd
JGHX: derddd
JGHX: dsdsfsd
JGHX: erfdfff

Here’s what it should look like with my suggestion.

JGHX: klsdfljsdf asdasd esdsv W$Sdfsdf SAEWweqwe
er45r4wef fsdfd derddd dsd [click to read more]

How easy would that be to clear up the chat room? If a person comments twice in a row (no one inbetween), you combine their comments (add 1 space between them: Coment1 space Comment2). Then if they post a TON of crap, add the tag that anyone can click to expand the comment. (this second part is prevent really determined spammers)

I think it would vastly improve the chat room.

Also could you put an IGNORE button on people’s profile in the chat at least? If I click their name there should be an “Ignore Chat from user” button. It’s easier than using the chat command: /ignore Spammer

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Rebirthing = 25 FREE Gold, let's talk about best Rebirth elements and what to do with that gold.

25 gold isn’t much, but it’s something.

So what do you guys recommend we do with that gold?

More Bank space? Oranges? Presents? Save it?

What’s the best thing to do with that gold on the first rebirth?

The second issue with Rebirthing is, which Element do we pick?

We get a whole tree of elemental skills, but which is best, and what are the benefits of each element?

Question: Are there any enemies in the game that tend towards one element or the other?

Question: We can only get the elemental skills up 10 times, so that means we can either spread out the elemental power we get (1 or 3 in each element) or we can pour it all into 1 element. Or maybe 2 opposing elements, so we can take advantage of plays who go 1 element only?

Which elemental build is better?

Extra Question: Each elemental skill tree we open up, does each skill require its own skill points?

Someone said that we can’t use two of the same skills (of differing elements) at the same time? Or that they share the same cool down? Is that true?

1 more question: Can someone explain of the Element Def Bonus and Element Defense stats are given on rebirth? If I chose Fire, I guess I get +10 Fire Attack. But do I also get Fire Defense? What about Ice defense? Do I get that too?

Looking forward to tips from more experienced players on those issues.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Suggestion: Auction Market system

Selling items in this game is a bit tedious.

Here’s my idea for an auction system.

Anyone can put any item they own (or wear) for auction, FOR FREE.

Any item on auction can be given a SUGGESTED price. But that’s just to start the auction. There is no “Buy it now!”. It’s pure auction.

In the auction system everyone who wants the item can put a bid on the item.

These bids are public! (but people don’t know who the bidder is, but the bids are sorted by “value” so the top value bids are at the top. This is important so other people know what to bid to outbid the other guy!)

The bids can be any item or coin amount or gold. (your account must have at least 3 gold, to bid gold, so that way people cant abuse newbie accounts)

The trick to this auction system is any bid is TEMPORARILY NON REFUNDABLE
(these items stay in your bank or backpack, but cannot be removed). Until the item is sold (or 1.5 days pass from time of the bid. After 1.5 days you can retract your bid).

Then the seller picks the winner at any time. (it can be any of the bids, or none. The seller can also dismiss bids he doesn’t like, and that bidder is made aware of this)

Items that are for auction stay in your backpack/equipped or bank, and do not get moved to an auction area.

Auction items that are 1.5 weeks old are removed from the list.

Topic: General Gaming / The Obliterate Everything 3 topic, online VS multiplayer space shooter **game updated**

My Biohazard [self destruct + shield + armor] vs far level 64 flank Cloud.

I set it up so my only offense was the Biohaz (totally OP, except VS shielded stuff) and the Clouds (almost pure shield beings) and filling my base with Repair Turrets.

The battle goes back and forth each time getting deadlier and deadlier. (it builds up)

Anyway, I think my base looked pretty cool with all the repair turrets healing all the self inflicted Biohaz acid and the clouds that got over the base. :D Too bad I didnt gif it.

Here’s another day, taking my Biohazzards out for walkies!

All my lovely boys!

Oh! We meet a friendly green! Hi Mr Green!

A quick way to take a screen shot is to press the Print Screen key on your keyboard.

Then go to and click on Upload Images at the top, then press Control + V.

Then upload and share the link here.

When you post the link to the image, to make it show up on the Kongregate forums, do it like this:

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Trade, buy, and sell items and good here!

I figure this might help get items you might be looking for.

1) List your level (or range), or the level range of the items you want.
Or list the level of the item you are selling.

2) List a suggested price for that item. (or it can remain private between you and other trader)

3) PLEASE mention your IN GAME NAME so people can more likely get back to you.

4) Optional: Mention times you play the game (don’t forget time zone!) so it’s more likely to find you.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Issues with resetting orange items

I’m not sure why orange items don’t just match your level? Why have orange items level up?

Why not just have a simple algorithm that makes the orange item match your level?

Let’s pick one of the stats in the item, Attack.

Let’s say you get an Orange with nice attack for a level 70 orange. Say, 90% of it’s theoretical max.

So why not make the math simple and do (BaseAttack) + (AttackPerLevel * .9 * level) = final stat.

That way the item would always be 90% attack, no matter the level. And level 70 one time, would be the same as any other BLUE level 70.

Would that make things too simple?

Or how about this, whenever an Orange item levels up, it regenerates as a BLUE STATS, that way you don’t have to do the math to get it working right? It would just generate the item again.

Anyway, as the game is right now, it looks like Oranges that are generated at a high level, are way better than oranges gotten at a low level?

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Duel Bug

Yup, just to clarify, you opponent needs to show as online when you click his name, and it needs to not show that he declined your duel.

But also it seems sometimes that the game pretends its a live duel, when it’s really not.

In that case, you gotta check the Chat box in the duel and it will show the pings between you two.

That’s the only way a Duel counts as a win/loss or draw on your record.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Can someone explain how Attack and Defense, and Fire Attack and Fire Defense work?

I think the way the basic system works is this….

You have a total attack power, let’s say 100 to 110. (your sword is 20-30)

If the target has 90 Defense, then you can (assuming no criticals or pierce) do 10 to 20 damage to the target? (110 – 90)


Okay, so what about “Fire Attack”?

Does that get added in top? Is “Fire Attack” almost as good as normal Attack?

And then what about Fire Defense afterwards?

That’s what I’m mostly interested in. But I’d also like some explanation of Pierce and Criticals while we’re at it.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Bug with Prologue quests if you already have max quests

What seems to happen if your quests get stuck because the game can’t add 1 more quest to your list.

This causes the game to get stuck (in my case) in the Dojo when having them teach you about stances and skills.

[and no, there is no 1 step way to drop a quest once you are inside the tutorial]
