Legacy of Flan: Flan Rising

Something has crashed right in the middle of Flanville! Some say it was a meteor, some say it was a spacecraft. Whatever it was, it brought all kinds of nasty creepy crawlies with it, and King Flandoo has assembled a group of flan still wet-behind-the-ears to investigate!

Legacy of Flan is a single person role playing game set in Flanville. Your party of Flan must travel around the world killing monster Flan to save the Kingdom/gain flavor. King Flandoo has provided the party with a To-Do list (access with tab) with four quest chains (battle, exploration, investigation, and boss quests). Completing all tasks for each quest chain will earn the player an "A", though completion of secret parts will earn the player an "S". For receiving at least an "A", players will earn +10 luck (Boss Quest), +200 max life (Battle Quest), +100 max life (Exploration Quests), and/or +200 max life (Investigation Quests).

Combat

Combat consists of a series of "turns"; when a flan's action bar fills, it is their turn to attack. Enemies do not have action bars, but attack based on their speed stat. Spell affects are listed on the sides of the screen; beneficial effects on the right, enemy status effects on the left, and friendly status effects at the top. There are numerous status effects (documented in the skill section); all stack to increase time and severity (except Death Count). For example, recasting Poison on an enemy will cause the effect to last longer and cause more damage each second. The enemy has three status effects to use against the player:


Death: Instantly kills the party if time runs out.

Poison: Damages the party over time until cured or time runs out.

Slow: Action bars fill slower; strong slow effects may freeze the party completely.


Experience

Experience is rewarded during battle based on damage points (white), combo points (yellow), and bonus points (blue) which enter the shared experience pool each turn. White damage points are generated whenever a status effect, summon, or flan reduces enemy hit points. Yellow combo points appear whenever multiple hits are registered within one turn. Blue bonus points are generated based on your damage increasing stat-boosts. Bonus points are calculated before calculating enemy defense; they may exceed actual damage dealt. These points are distributed after each flan takes its turn; the acting flan receives 10% of the pool for each enemy in combat. The entire experience pool may be dumped into a skill category by right clicking on it during combat.


Flan Drops

Flan drops allow flan to change into another type of flan or may be used as experience. Flan have a 10% chance each combat turn of finding a flan drop; the quality/rank dependent on the party luck stat and current value. The luck stat is determined by the difficulty of the current enemies and any increased through use of the "Loot Drop" skill. The party value is based on the quality of flans in use; high level flan allow high rank drops. Accepting the flan drop immediately changes the flan's type to that of the drop. Rejecting the drop adds its converted experience to the experience pool. The rank of a drop corresponds to its rarity; the higher the rank, the less common the drop.


Flavor Drops

Flavor drops grant additional properties to the party during combat. Flavor drops are gained randomly after combat and the party may equip up to four. Unlike flan drops, flavor drops do not convert to experience when discarded. Some flavor drops may be stacked; these come in four levels with minor the worst, better second worst, major second best, and super the best.

Generally, stackable drops will reapply their effect and regular intervals while non-stackable drops will not. Most drop effects are on a decay timer like a regular effect. When a non-stackable drop effect wears off it usually will not be reapplied, but when a stackable drop effect wears often it will usually be reapplied shortly so the effect lasts for the entire combat.

Stackable Drops
Type Effect Minor Better Major Super
Regen Heal over time +3 hp/8s +7 hp/8s +20 hp/8s
Poison Damage over time -3 hp/8s -10 hp/8s
Roast Damage over time
Toxin Damage over time
Sleet Random damage
Speed Quicker turns
Acid Random Acid Rain attack
  • Note that stacking multiple drops with the same DoT effects can wreak serious havoc. The effects are on a timer like a normal skill effect would be, but they are also on a re-application timer. Each time the reapply timer runs out the effect is added again at the original strength, if the effect strength is high enough the effect timer will never run out. As an example, equipping two Major Roast flavor drops can cause the effect timer to never reach zero. I don't have hard numbers in front of me, but here's the gist.
  1. Effect is applied at beginning of combat, giving the enemy a 15 point Roast effect.
  2. Effect timer counts down to 2 before the reapply timer runs out.
  3. Original effect strength is added to existing strength, leaving a 17 point Roast effect.
  4. Timers count down again, and reapply occurs when the Roast effect is at 4 points. Etc.

If you commit enough flavor drops to a scheme like that you can cause significant damage to your opponents, with damage slowly increasing the longer the combat draws out. This can be incredibly helpful in later boss combats where you may simply be struggling to survive. Concentrating on staying alive and waiting for your flavor drop effect to eventually become overpowering is a viable strategy if you can find the right drops.

Flan Types

Since a flan's statistics are based on its aggregate level in all four skill colors, it is useful to keep your flan well rounded level-wise. The B,R,G, and P columns below provide an easy reference to determine whether a flan drop will give you a favorable set of colors to work with. Note that the abilities don't need to be used, right clicking an ability will dump the current XP pool into that color without using the ability. Thus the Ninja's Poison ability is just as useful as the Iron Flan's Shadowclip for the purposes of leveling.

Hints

Winter Fort

In the center among the ice columns. Entrance from the lower right part of the formation. Snook: Ah yes, this is nice. Nice and cold. Nice natural cold weather! Not that other creepy kind of cold caused by some sort of invisible secret boss!

Mushroom Swamp

Mystic: Sometimes... I see things... strange images. Wait, I'm starting to see some now! A dead tree... a dark room... then a butterfly! Strange, I know.
