Topic: Berserk: The Cataclysm / Discussion on Standard Set Booster Boxes

Dear bytex and Berserk friends,

First of all, I love the game and the constant improvement and content updates; the future looks very promising indeed. Now, my personal belief is that a game should always strike a balance between being accessible to the free to play crowd while allowing the developers to eat somehow with pay features. I feel the best way to do this is to have an imperial option or two to purchase in every tab for the shop; the game does a great job of this except for the booster boxes tab which is devoid of any imperial options at all. Being a saver at heart and weak to discounts, I would love it if you could include booster boxes with standard boosters instead for imperials at a discount over what you would pay for them individually. This would make the booster boxes a tab that imperial savers would actually use from time to time instead of being a forbidden zone for all but a few ounce payers. I also would like to ask the community to chime in with your opinions on this topic as well as any other ideas you may have. Once again; great game and I hope to play Berserk for a long time!
Sincerely,
MoonlessOne

The Short and Sweet:
I would like standard booster boxes for imperials; would you and why?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Kung Fu] Login Problem on Server Myth

Usually I just read these forum threads and muse, but this particular problem demands that I too make a post. Please note webmmo that these accumulated server lockouts are a huge negative factor for players playing the game as:
1) Most of us have limited times where we can play the game, so being locked out during that time window means not being able to play the game for that particular day
2) Other players that can somehow get in get an advantage over others who cannot
3) The longer/more times this happens in a short span of time the more likely that players will quit the game, as quite frankly at the core this is a flash based game of which there are hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from
4) This will possibly negate all the good that the recent server mergers were trying to accomplish, which was to increase player population and activity
In conclusion, please if needed to tell the developers to take the time to code/set aside resources so that this particular problem will not happen again, then reassure players that there will be an attractive compensation package coming so that we, the players, will be satisfied and stick around.
Sincerely,
MoonlessOne

017. I am stuck in the arena!
Like any other game, the arena ranks players according to their relative power level to other players; you beat a person in your position, you rank up. Eventually you will get to a person that you cant beat simply because they are better than you in some way statwise. You can try updating gear, changing skills around and such or boosting with consumables to get further, but eventually you will rest at a point where everyone will be advancing at roughly the same speed as you. At this point you can either try harder or slow down to avoid being in the same rank.

015. My class is horrible right now!
The classes all have peaks and valleys in the power curve in regards to other classes; the skills you use, your current stat and equipment setup, and your levels play a big part in how strong you are. Keep in mind that late game the classes are roughly balanced in relation to each other, so you will have your moment in the sun!

016. Any downtime to the game?
Game servers will shut down for maintenance every Wednesday at 0200-0500 server time. Plan on using the lobby or practicing during that time.

012. Where is the guide for the game?
General helpful guide to assist you in keeping tabs on your progress can be found on the level guide link in game. A more detailed guide can be found in the help link in the game. All other information can be found at http://kfk.powermmo.com/

013. Any benefit from joining a guild?
Direct benefits include increased experience and coin rewards when using the training and teaching options in the lobby as well as a shared guild experience reward pool. Indirect benefits include additional player friends as well as the ability to complete otherwise unobtainable beauty cards.

014. Im stuck on a quest or instance that the game says I can do!
KFK gives you enough rope to hang yourself in that quests and instances will open up earlier than you can reasonably complete them. Best advice I can give is to try using temporary stat boosting foods and cards, updating your equipment, forging your equipment, and gaining a few more levels.

010. I am running low on points, how to get more?
- complete daily welfare requirements and recieve the points option at level 39+
- rank up in position then get points from flashing rank link screen
- specific beauty cards
- special events

011. Special events?
Each month KFK releases a Kongregate forum thread containing the schedule of special events which greatly help you obtain points, items, and experience. Its best once it is release to look at the thread to prepare for events as some require a large energy or point commitment.
Example of KFK events for October: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/37-heroes-of-kung-fu/topics/207667-events-kfk-events-of-october

007. What state to choose?
Pick one fitting a description that you like or based on the passive bonus it gives
- Qi state – Max HP +0.2%×Position Level Max MP +0.4%×Position Level
- Chu state – Breaking Hit +0.2%×Position Level Opportunity of Advanced Equipments +0.2%×Position Level
- Wei state – Hit Rate +0.3%×Position Level
- Yan state – Critical Hit +0.3%×Position Level
- Zhao state – Extra Attack +0.1%×Position Level Defense +0.2%×Position Level
- Han state – Dodge +0.3%×Position Level
Keep in mind that later on you are given a chance to switch the inherit state bonus you get while staying within the same state, so if you have a friend from one state but like the bonus from another you can initially go to your friends state and then switch the bonus!

006. Where can I get more stuff for my nearly naked new character?
The knee jerk reaction is to buy stuff from the stores to fill up those empty gaps in your character screen, but you should know several things:
- You gain levels like mad near the start of the game – that nice looking mantle will be obselete by the end of the day as you outlevel it and then have to buy something else again
- The game gives you starter items to fill up those slots as the tutorial goes on, no need to buy anything on your part
- cheapest way to get items is through fighting in the wild and instances(co-op dungeons)
- if you have to you can get items from the store starting at level 17+, it is recommended that you target blue items with at least one stat that is favorable to you

005. Picking up 700 points right near the start of the game
Coins are used to buy equipment, heal, and upgrading skills. Points are the free near equivalent of gold(gold costs kreds) for the more premium and convenient options of KFK. Many new players complain that they start with so little points, but you can actually get 500 to 700 points rather quickly.
- 200 points from Newbie Transport gift pack (S3 Myth server only) – Automatically given to new players; pick it up from the gift pack link on top middle of game screen.
- 20 points for each day of login for first ten days (200 points total) – Simply log in each day to receive a 20 point gift pack.
- 100 points for getting a mentor within 3 hours of first login – go to sociality link at left bottom of game screen, then mentorship. Three potential mentors online will pop up as an option in that screen, pick one that you like. You can try to message them in world chat to see what they are like as they should be online. Collect 100 points from gift pack. (If the mentorship does not work out you can change mentors prior to level 20)
- 200 points for signing up to QQi Group – its an instant messenger that will allow you to report problems with the game to a live worker representing the company. Details can be found here: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/37-heroes-of-kung-fu/topics/166585-announcement-qqi-group

(Personal Opinion)
Dagger – Assassin – The ninja class of the game, as long as you are dealing damage while taking none you are good to go. Arguably the best class for most instances(co-op dungeons). High dodge and critical rates are the bread and butter of this class. Play him if you want things to die fast or have limited play time.
Dagger – Duelist – The skill class of the game, you have the most varied situational skills out of all the classes. Silver bullet skills mean you can destroy other classes provided you know what counters what. Tacticians flock to this class.
Sword – Gladius – The jack of all trades. Can go agility based glad for moderate hit and dodge while wearing light or medium armor, or can go strength based glad for good damage and wearing heavy armor. Challenging to allocate stats correctly, but can reset stats for a new build without having to reroll a new character. Being a flexible player helps with this class.
Sword – Mystic – The wizard class of the game. Slowest start but high potential at high levels with skills that multiply your damage to insane levels provided you hit with them along with a mp shield that can give you much more added survivability. Players in it for the long haul and pot of gold at end of rainbow can pick this class.
Spear – Destroyer – Two handed weapon armored knight of the game. You deal great damage provided you can hit regularly. Heavy armor helps to reduce damage others can do to you greatly, so often it becomes a straight up brawl trading blows back and forth. Fighters come here to honorable battle.
Spear – Defender – The training dummy with spiked nails of the game. You cant stop others from hitting you constantly all the time, but boy does it hurt when they do. High feedback means you give back a good amount that you take, and you can take a lot more hits than most other classes can. Dont play as him if you cant take slow battles or constantly having to heal up all the time. If you smile when thinking of saying “Stop hitting yourself!” in a battle, this class is for you.

004. Dagger, Sword, or Spear?
(Sorta Factual)
Dagger – Assassin – Fastest attack speed in the game (10 seconds), most benefit from agility, gains great dodge, low hp, wears light armor.
Dagger – Duelist – Second fastest attack speed in game (12 seconds), most benefit from agility, gains dodge, low hp, wears light armor.
Sword – Gladius – Moderate attack speed (14 seconds), most benefit from agility , gains moderate dodge and hit, medium hp, can wear heavy, medium and light armors.
Sword – Mystic – Moderate attack speed (16 seconds), split benefits from agility and constitution, gains attack and mp shield later on, medium hp, can wear heavy, medium, and light armors.
Spear – Destroyer – Slow attack speed (18 seconds), most benefits from strength, gains moderate attack, high hp, can wear heavy, medium, and light armors.
Spear – Defender – Slowest attack speed (20 seconds), most benefits from constitution, gains feedback, very high hp, can wear heavy, medium, and light armors.

Dear new KFK player,

First of all, welcome to KFK. I will try to address commonly asked questions about the game as well as give hopefully helpful general advice. Purpose of this thread is to get you playing and enjoying the game without too many stones on the path to your success.

001. Who is this guy and why is he trying to give me some advice?
I am MoonlessOne from S3 Myth; started playing on July 11, 2011; currently a level 60s defense spear in Han state and a proud member of RAGE guild. I was a chat moderator for the months of August and September, so I have had some experience with new players asking me questions about the game. I want you to get a running start out the gate with the game instead of bumbling around in the dark until you quit from frustration or minor mistakes that add up crippling your potential.

002. Which server to pick?
(Personal Opinion)
S1 – Rebirth – First Kongregate server, so the player base there is the most advance in levels; good place to be if you want high level player help running some of the co-op features of the game.
S2 – Olympia – Second Kongregate server, recently the subject of a server merger, so the player base is largest and arguably most active here; come here if you want plenty of player interaction.
S3 – Myth – Third Kongregate server, youngest server so the player levels are lowest here; come here if you want to make a name for yourself/have an easier time reaching near the top rankings.

003. Male or Female?
No stat differences between the two; pick based on if you want players to call you a he or she.
