4. Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition Speed run

Speed run/ TLDR last page

Start a new game, as suggested by Carrot Cake Kid, choose the following:

  • Hugo : Knight (best tank)- Frontline & Combat Skill evenly. Don't upgrade Defensive Strike, it only needs one point - Note I found that this used a ton of MP so I put more on combat skill
  • Betu : Rogue - (at 100% crit, this guy is a beast) Double Strike & Vanish. I ended up with about 2 points of Double Strike for each point of Vanish but your main goal is to get your critical hit % to 100 through Vanish, items and the Necromancer spell Help From Below
  • Gui : Necromancer (best DoT) - Help From Below & Summon Minion. I put about 2 points into Help From Below for every 1 point of Summon Minion. Once you can get your Rogue to 100% crit through this spell + items + Vanish don't dump any more points into it.
  • Ronaldo : Shaman (good AoE/DoT and MP replenisher) - Static Field & Hurricane. I put about 2 points into Static Field for every 1 point of Hurricane
  • Hynx : Bard (decent buff and a great group healer) - Octavarium & Power Chord. I leveled these at about 3 Octavarium to every 2 Power Chord.

You now know how the game plays. Make sure you mine, it doesn't take a day for each. I won't spell out every action but I will have an in depth time chart that tells you which quest to take, what day it should be, when to buy potions/gear/blacksmith upgrades. Always fight the maximum enemies required for a quest unless I say otherwise. Resting is not suggested unless absolutely required:

Suggested Attack Order:

  • Hugo - 1st > Frontline/ 2nd > Defensive Strike / 3rd > Defensive Strike / 4th > Defensive Strike
  • Betu - 1st > Vanish / 2nd Double Strike / 3rd Double Strike / 4th Double strike (Adjust for large crowds, use concusion)
  • Gui - 1st > Help from below on Gui / 2nd Summon Imp / 3rd Summon Imp / 4th > Summon Imp (6th turn use HfB again)
  • Ronaldo - 1st > Hurricane / 2nd > Static field on Gui / 3rd > Hurricane / 4th > Static on Ronaldo / 5th > Hurricane / 6th > Static on Betu (adjust on MP needs)
  • Hynx - 1st > Power Chord / 2nd > Octavarium / 3rd, 4th, 5th Heal or regular attack until 6th > Power Chord


Suggested Items:

Table : Rock table
Master : Dr. Clientist
Furniture left : Shelf
Furniture right : Clock (Sword and shield while upgrading at the blacksmith)
Door : Prison door
Rug : Bear fur carpet
Books : Monster book
Pet : Dragon
